Okay, I am just throwing this out there: does anyone else feel closer to their dog than to humans through this roller coaster journey?

I have a wonderful life and great support, but my little blind shelter dog Lewie (a white poodle mix) has been constantly by my side- whether I am sleeping on the couch after chemo or in the armchair after surgery, or posting like now- he is on the couch next to me with his head in my lap.

This little guy never leaves my side except when I go to work, then he pretty much just sleeps with his buddy (daddy's boy) on their memory foam bed until I get back. Yes, a bit spoiled, I admit it.

I am wondering if anyone else has a similar relationship with their "comfort dog"? He has helped me so much.

OMG Slickchickie, thank you but it's not like you don't have anything going on :p
Still wishing you the best!

My avatar is my Jellybean. She is a rescue from a puppy mill and had no name, the woman who picked her up named her and said we could change it, but we decided not to, when she lays down she kind of looks like a giant bean! She loves everyone and everything, very sweet dog but likes having her own bed and space. She will sit by my chair for hours but is the first dog I have had that doesn't like sleeping in our bed. Well, I could go on and on about her....she is wonderful, very smart and easy to train. My other BT Star is the lapdog and cuddler.

Slickchickie - yes, we do have similar stories. I thoroughly enjoyed yours! You are in my thoughts and prayers and add me to your pocket.

Here's another comfort dog story.
In 2001 both my parents had cancer. I felt so depleted and sad that my hubby agreed to let me add a Great Dane puppy to the family. She was a very large Dane puppy. Well, my husband stole her affection and she quickly became his girl. She adored him so much that she would lay with her head on his lap and look at me like, " forget it b*tch, he's mine!" Seriously, I think she was plotting to get me out of the bed so she could sleep with him. I will admit she was actually loving to me when my parents died. In 2004 my husband had a heart attack. I should have known something was up because she would not leave his side, literally sleeping as close as she could get to him. While he was in the hospital, she was a mess. Wouldn't eat and lay waiting for his return. Once home she wouldn't leave him even to go to the bathroom! He had to tell her to go out with me and potty. I had to bring her food to her or she wouldn't eat! Roxxy stayed by my husband's side through another heart attack and recuperation from a motorcycle accident. My husband had to retire in 2004 because it isn't a good idea to have a firefighter with a bum ticker. She was the happiest dog ever spending her days and nights by his side. She was his angel and he was hers.

hi everyone.  I'm newly-registered (yesterday) but am a long-time lurker.  Diagosed one year ago this month.  I've been gathering little bits here and there and just love the support everyon here has for each other.  I was drawn to this topic becuase I so am in love with my two retrievers, Ruby Tuesday (2 yrs) she's an english cream retriever (white) and Lily, who is my senior lady golden retreiver.  I have always been a lover of dogs and I was so glad to see that someone (many someones!) believe in the soothing healing powers of animals, in my case especially I find I am most calm and able to think when they are with me and resting next to me....love when they fight over my affection!  They do have souls, they do have intuition, and they do understand when we are struggling.  My Ruby is literally a dog who will sit at my feet, fiercely loyal, comes and sits even when i go to the bathroom just to be by me.  Takes her position leaning against me dhoulder to shoulder at the same spot on the couch every morning with my news and coffee.  They are so sweet - I just wanted IN on this little discussion.....cuz I get it....I SO get it:)

Welcome RubyLilly- your retrievers sound wonderful. They are such great dogs. Yours sound especialy wonderful. How is your treatment going? I laughed at your comment that Ruby comes with you even to the bathroom- that's my Lewie! Unless I am filling the bathtub and then he fears it is bathtime and magically disappears for awhile. haha.

Sgc I love the story about your "daddy's girl" great dane. Wonderful. What intense loyalty.

And as for the "mom and popping" to get two dinners- my dogs have that cornered- me, my husband, and my best friend who lives with us during the work week- all get the very sad, "isn't anyone going to feed us tonght?" eyes. They do not realize that we can verbally communicate of course. but sometimes it works!

gritgirl I like your idea of the demotion. My dogs do have "comfort dogs in training" vests (so I can take them into the office sometimes to see the crew- they love it so much) and they are not getting their cancer detection badge pinned on any time soon!

SLickchickie it is your big day. I know you won't see this until recovery but we are all there with you- in your pocket.
GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We - and Capone- await your return,

>I Just posted this on the summer rads board but thought I would share here as well (cute dog story):

I have a blue frogtogg chilly towel for my breast/neck region that is getting zapped by the radiation, and a lime green one for my feet since I work for hours on my bed with a hot laptop. It is over 100 degrees here and the AC doesnt keep up all that well upstairs mid-afternoon.

Today was hilarious- Lewie laid close to me as usual, but on the edge of the designated foot frogtogg, loved it, and slowly it inched over to being "his". I covered him with it and he did not move for an hour.

SO, I guess I now need to buy a third. That one has been claimed!

Love this thread..... love my dog!!! When my doc said to stay away from my animals, got lots of them I said NO not gonna happen if you want me healthy!!! My dog Hanna has developed a fear of phones. I think since I got the bad news of cancer and freaked out everytime I crab the phone she wines and licks my feet. Poor baby needs therapy after Im done. The peace love comfort she gives me is priceless :) Nothing much makes sense anymore but the simple snuggle of my friend!!
