dog

It's no coincidence that a dog is a man's best friend; they're more faithful than most other animals, and more faithful than many people.

    Daffy

    Daffy

    Daffy was a stray. The dog catcher picked her up from the Target parking lot and took her to dog jail. My ex husband and I had recently taken in his daughter, age 5, full time as her mother was having some issues. I said no dogs. I had just lost Haley, my best furry friend of 9 years to a seizure disorder. No more dogs can’t do it.

    My Charlie

    My Charlie

    My pet Charlie was a rescue dog. An animal loving friend -Debby, said her daughter had found him in a field wrapped in barbed wire. He must have bolted from somewhere but Deb and her daughter couldn't find where. They put an add in the paper and also let the pound know that they would keep him if no-one claimed him . And after three weeks no-one did so Deb kept him. She had another pet similar in size to Charlie and mated her with him. So before Charlie was even mine he was a daddy and happy about it.

    Normon A Family Member

    Normon A Family Member

    People don’t believe me when I tell them the stories about Normon. Our Siberian Husky was so intelligent he was like a human trapped inside a dog. Husky owners understand what I talk about and the feeling of loss I have. Normon was a family member and much more than just a dog. He had a sense of humor that was amazing and would light up the entire area wherever he was. Everyone loved Normon and he was the star when I took him to the liquor store. He became famous for the crazy things he would do there. One time I had him inside the beer cooler and he was walking behind a woman. I did not think anything of it until he gently grabbed her butt and walked behind her. I was terrified thinking there would be a police response and yelled at Normon scolding him. The woman smiled and said he is OK. There were many times like that where I found myself confused, and not knowing whether to be embarrassed or jealous. Normon had a thing for the smell of women’s hair products and certain body lotions. While my wife was aware of this, I was not, and found out one day when he went crazy for a woman while walking him. Suddenly he was on her and I found myself conflicted what to do, should I pull him off, but she liked it and opened her arms to him. She had very large breasts, and he almost popped one out as he was nuzzling her cleavage. I told her,” I did not teach him that”. She smiled and said, “Dogs learn from their masters”.

    When You Miss Someone

    When You Miss Someone

    Pets are more than just animals. They become part of the family. If you treat them right, they treat you right. They sense when you are sad and help comfort you. They snuggle with you during movies or in bed. I don't think my "Boyo" exactly enjoyed being dressed up but he tolerated it. He was only with our family for about 2 years but he is missed dreadfully.

    Angus, a dog with issues

    Angus, a dog with issues

    Let me start by saying that I am not a dog trainer. I'm going to tell you the story of my dog "Angus". Angus is a full-blooded English Bull Terrier. I fell in love with the breed thirty years ago. I tried rescue groups to adopt, but since I had never had experience with they denied me. At that time I had been volunteering with our local Humane Society for years. Within a year they asked me to become a member of the board of directors. One day I got a call from a fellow board member, she had to tell me there was a bull terrier at the local shelter. Within 30 minutes I had arrived to see that it was a Bullie. (the nickname for Bull terriers) As I soon learned, this dog was picked up by the animal control officer(ACO), Which meant the owner had 5 days to reclaim him. After that he would be placed up for adoption. I was able to take him outside of the shelter during my visit and fell in love.

    The Biggest HeartBreak of All

    The Biggest HeartBreak of All

    Heartbreak. The feeling of hopelessness. Of being lost and alone. The unbearable pain that seems to never go away. And when it finally becomes nothing more than a dull ache, every reminder of the past brings it all crashing back. Thats when you seek the reassurance of another. I always leaned on the reassurance of the friendliest, most knowing of presence. My furry companion, and most loyal supporter. My dog. The most loving creature, who never judges you for your ugly tears. Who looks at you with adoration when you feel betrayed and unloved.

    A puppy’s world

    A puppy’s world

    I’ve often wondered what puppy’s feel what they think about, and so on. Sometimes they act as if they are partial human they are so intelligent and interesting. How do they manage being down so low and everyone else walking around above them sometimes stepping on them, poor little guys? I have two little yorkies that I love dearly and I often wonder what they must be thinking when they do that little growl when we’re eating or when they go get their favorite toy for you to throw. They often wrestle with one another and sometimes it gets nasty ,especially when the oldest one is tired and doesn’t feel like playing. I am still debating on if I am going to breed the female that I have. She is a very feisty puppy and always mischievous, so I’m curious if she can carry puppies safely without something happening. She will do most anything when it comes to playing. She is one silly puppy. I often wonder how I got so lucky to have her. Originally she was my granddaughters and my daughter couldn’t deal with the care so she let me take her. My oldest is 7 and he has been nutored so it will be a change to breed her. I am curious to see her puppy’s and witness their personality to see if they are like her. She has the most fun and playful and realistic character I have ever seen. In a puppy’s world it has to be different, they are so small and everything to them probably seems so big. I love puppy’s and wonder a lot about them. I hope I don’t sound favortistic but yorkie is my favorite. They are to me the most intelligent puppy. I have so many questions about them. They never seize to amaze me. Sometimes I feel like the oldest one I have is trying to talk to me. Yeah, talk to me! I know right! That puppy is so very smart, and the other one is as well. She’s just the most mischievous thing ever. Just wow. She does things I am dropping my jaw at. And they both never can get enough attention. As with any puppy. So I will conclude this with curiosity about puppy’s all around. What are they thinking? What are they feeling? Who are they thinking about? And so on. I will be doing more research , but until then, take care and especially take care of your fur baby!
