    Cat lady here, but how could anyone not respond to this gorgeous good news story and I know devoted doggy ladies will definitely appreciate it

    This is Bud who spent years in a shelter run by Battersea Dogs Home in the UK and has now finally found a home

    This is how Sofia feels about this year's abysmal election...

    She can't wait until it's over, and neither can I! We're up poop creek no matter who wins.

    I'm so glad I found this thread. I got my Java girl back in April. Found out I also got cancer in August. One I want to keep- the puppy. The other? I cut that bitch out. Off with her head. Ha! Little did I know that this little girl was going to be the reason I smile on days I didn't think smiling was possible. I love her to death. And she is so chill. She's filled a huge void as my last son went off to college. So what I had planned as the start of a new life chapter being an empty nester with my hubby and traveling with my puppy has turned into holing up and nesting at home while I kick cancer's ass. And Java is with me every step of the way. Have I said I love her to pieces? lol

    This pic is of her after her grooming spa day.

    This picture is of her on top of my computer demanding I pay attention to her.

    And this is her in her frog leg pose just resting. She loves resting like this.

    In Alaska for the summer before I found out about the big C.

    She's the best decision I've made in a long time. And it didn't even involve alcohol. :D

    I have 3 rescues, and I'm not sure who rescued whom.

    This is my Missy, 100 pounds of pure love

    and this is Patty, a Basenji mix. I got her from the animal shelter, and her worried little frown when she's not getting the attention she wants is hilarious.

    And last (and also littlest) is Bandit, our Jack Russell mix. Not sure what he's mixed with, because he has no tail, not even a nub. DH teases me and says Bandit is our special needs child. Sorry, I should have included them all in one post, duh.

    Very sweet, all 3 of them. I love the expression 'who rescued who'. Definitely.

    So this little boy got himself into some trouble late, late Monday night. I sent him out into the back yard to go potty. Next thing I know I hear him screaming! I go running for him, and he, thank goodness came running back to me. I didn't realize until Tuesday morning that he was hurt. Whatever got him, and we think it was a coyote, bit his side and his right rear leg. Off to the vet, who prescribed antibiotics and some pain meds. And the poor little guy has done NOTHING but go from bed to bed... He is in a great deal of pain even after the medication. I hate that he is hurt!!! I just want my little bugger to be back up and about to his mischievous ways!!

    Ruth, love the expression on Stella's face.

    Oh Zeus. Poor you. Momma will pamper you.

    Beautiful pups, ladies.

    Here is mine waiting for a new neighbor (squirrel). She whines and barks every time she sees it. image

    Cuyrly, hope your little guy is better! That's why we take Sofia out on a leash to potty. We get lots of other critters in our yard because we are so close to the creek and the low hills. We've had mean raccoons, possums and several skunks in our yard, and countless squirrels. No coyotes, but raccoons will fight, and we all know what skunks can do.

    Kisses for the baby! She would always lay down when the grandbabies come around:) Not sure if she was being nice or just trying to get close enough to give him kisses!

    S'more doesn't know what to do with a pound of freshly ground gourmet coffee I got for his Daddy.

    "Mommy, what is that?"

    S'more did enjoy romping in the leaves with my daughter and another of his doggie friends we met during our walk at the park.

    I just stumbled on to this forum and so glad I did! Looking at all the wonderful pics really warms my heart. I am still mourning the loss of the 2 loves of my life. Freeway and Baby were my everything and they got me through the most difficult times in my life.....divorce, early stage breast cancer, hepatitis B (that I almost died from), and of course stage 4 diagnosis. Baby started losing weight and was diagnosed with lung cancer and passed June 2015 at the age of 15. My Freeway died this past August at the age of 17 from failing kidneys. Oh how I miss them and I think about them everyday. Life is not the same without them in my life.

    Baby is the black and tan (I always thought she was a min pin mix) and I rescued her as a homeless puppy on the streets. She was approximately 8 - 10 weeks old. I found Freeway running in the median in Lexington, KY with 2 other litter mates. He is a Catahoula Leopard and was approximately 3 months old.

    image

    Baby loved car trips to Alabama, but Freeway was always a bit nervous at first.

    image

    Baby would roll up in a little ball and sleep!

    image

    Baby loved those chew bones!!

    image

    Freeway's big smile!

    image

    Freeway loved his cheerio's!


    Thank you for sharing the pics of all of your babies and thank you for letting me share mine!
