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.

lol dogs are so funny how they can arrange themselves, to get the exact eye sight level they prefer. Food always so impertinent for the plan to be executed! Invasion! Adorable for sure!

lol old man got stuck after he fell off his bed last night lol I woke to hear him whining on the floor. Poor guy is getting so old. He spent the week not feeling well. Vomiting weak, back legs weakened. I'm worrying about our old man. Sigh they are like our children. Deeohgee has been watching him. Following him around. It's so sad... like he almost senses something is off. But today he is a little better. Hoping it was just a tummy ache. If he cannot get the legs to work we are facing putting him down . Which I don't want to do.💔 windy and cold here. So cuddling with the dogs tonight most likely!

I was just bitten by one of my large dogs. I have two large dogs Teddy the Retriever and Pierre large mixed breed jumped on one another. I tried to carefully separate them and ended up getting bitten. I have three small puncture wounds. Red blood count and white blood count have been good so hopefully I won't have any issues with infection.. these two dogs were best friends until last year. I had to board Ted for almost 3 months when I went in for surgery and subsequently chemo. My friends didn't want to take care of Ted because Ted is high energy. Pierre has never been a problem but once ted returned home from boarding and training Pierre no longer likes him. I believe Pierre became the alpha dog while Ted was away. So I've kept them separated for the past 9 months and obviously I wasn't successful this morning. They see each other all the time and smell one another ; a very long doggie gates separates them. I'm going to give the trainer a call and have him work with the two dogs together. Neither dog was hurt. I should have been paying more attention. I've been distracted over the past couple weeks due to a friend being very ill and just life in general. I hope the dog bite can heal on its own. I've had several bites throughout the years. When you rescue a lot of dogs throughout your lifetime it isn't unusual to get the occasional bite. In my county, all Healthcare professionals have to report a known dog bite. My concern is I am over the limit with my dogs. Heal Arm heal. I love looking at all the dog pictures. Have a great day
