When I saw the post cats, cats, cats, I simply had to create this one. I've had two dogs. My first was a miniature pinscher named Bucky. He'd been thrown out of a car (!) and ended up on a corner where I got off the bus. He was one year old, and eventually became my psychiatric service dog. The difference between that and a therapy dog was that Bucky had actual tasks to carry out. Such as pawing at my leg to bring me out of a dissociative state.


The second picture is an expression we used to call The Face. When he saw something he wanted. Food, toy, you name it.

Bucky died abruptly of congestive heart failure at nine. That was over five years ago, and I'm still heartbroken.

I got a puppy, another miniature pinscher, named Fletcher. He is an adorable bundle of energy, and neurotic as the day is long! EVERYTHING scares him! He's a rescue who spent his first four months in a cage by himself at a puppy mill. Five years later, Fletcher is a sweet, loving dog. But a real mess. He didn't even know how to be a dog. He still doesn't greet like a normal dog; he's happy to see me, but darts out of reach if I try to pet him. Other than that, he loves to cuddle. And he has a loud, shrill bark, as these dogs do.

Cuddy, he is our first min pin, and our first small dog. I have always had BIG dogs... Dalmatian/Doberman mix and German Sheppard/Lab mix. Boy was I in for a shock! He is so stinking smart! And stubborn! WOW! The big dogs were goofy and just people pleasers. The min pin, he is a much different guy. He is more like a baby - when he is tired, he gets really naughty and does things like grabs the end of the toilet paper and runs thru the house with it... or if someone leaves out a shoe, well... they are buying new ones. He really keeps me on my toes, but at the same time, if I'm not feeling well, he is right there to cuddle and love me. Such a little stinker!!

Fletcher is a very good looking pup! I bet Zeus and Fletcher could get into all sorts of mischief!!!

Sofia is a GREAT dog! Our first Bulldog looked a lot like her, but she was the polar opposite...always barking, running around and generally a "Type A" personality. Sofia is very calm and even tempered. The perfect companion for convalescing person.

I talk to him a lot about what I'm doing and where I'm going. I I love this little boy so much. He's completely changed my life and given me something that I've never had before - an understanding of what it could be like to have a child - this is my eternal child. He takes my mind off what I've been through and the fact that children just weren't going to be on the cards after what I've been through ... sigh! I am besotted with him.

MY WONDERFUL FURRY FRIENDS SillyHeart

I currently have two rescue poodles. One is a big silver standard poodle named Percy. He came to live with me on 1/1/12, when he was 6 yrs old.

Here he is with the groomer.

He has many behavior problems ( I think he has some PTSD and a mild form of Asperger's syndrome), but I will keep him and make sure he knows he is safe and loved and protected.

But I really missed my "soul dog" Frisco who lived for 18 yrs , and was so tuned into me, and who went to heaven 2 weeks before I brought Percy home.

So 18 months after I got Percy, I went to the Denver Humane Society, and got this little guy.

His name is Dillon, and he was 6 months old when he came to live with me, and oh, what a new world he brought with him. He is a PISTOL, but such a loving snuggly darling, and he is 3 yrs old now and the apple of his momma's eye. Oddly enough, I didn't realize how much Percy needed a buddy. But almost right away, I could see that they needed each other as much as i did.
