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.

She’s across the rainbow bridge now waiting for us.

That is the best! Love all these Spookiesmom and Mommyof2... how do you find them?

Hello to Dozer!

Micmel - our 17 year old Tucker was doing great Sat night and just lost his mobility on Sunday. OMG it’s heartbreaking and I think you know how I feel.

We aren’t giving up on Tuck. He’s MUCH better today and we have a harness to help him walk now. Any other advice or thoughts from anyone with senior dogs with arthritis?

I took this photo when Tucker was standing on his own for a bit - we have the towel as he’s worse on a slippery floor but better with padding. Domino and Finley are offering their support too.


Mostly he is like this now though...

Pebbles~Tag gets worse everyday, and doesnt do well with slippery surfaces at all. Slides all uneven. It wrecks me. His feet are starting to fold under slightly. But I move them back for him. He doesn't seem to be whimpering or in any pain, but it's clear he's just barely making the stairs anymore and we try to look at it as mobility training and strengthening what he has left of his muscle. I get so worried when he goes down. I know one of these times, he won't be getting back up......I feel for you. I know how you feel , I truly truly do. I'm so sorry. I hate it when they age. It sucks. We give cosequin for their joints. Which I'm sure you're already doing. Sending hugs...Tag always is laying down as well and only gets up to potty... he walks around a little bit it's tripping a lot dragging his foot behind slightly sometimes. I wish I had a doggie elevator...

Poor baby. My Aussie couldn't get traction to get up from the laminate floors would wake me up in the night, trying and crying. It was awful. Once he got up, he seemed ok. But he was good at hiding the pain. It sucks. Friends, DD, and I find the memes in different places. I do screenshots to put here.

Somecards has a LOT of funny ones.

Tippy's canine cousin visited a few weeks ago. Tippy tasted Sadie's food, then ended up eating the whole bowlful. Since then he has been avoiding his regular food unless extremely hungry. He has been out-of-sorts today, So today it arrived. I had my mail, then saw the box. I admit I was a bit excited. I opened the door excited that now Tippy would have some food he likes. He slipped out the door and took a run in the neighborhood. I would see him next to the door, open the door, and he would run away. He finally decided to come in from the cold. I think he expected me to chase after him, and I can't run. Just took a break to take him for a walk. I suspect he pooped during his brief time of freedom this afternoon. So, anyway, he hasn't eaten his deluxe food yet. Busy pushing around a treat-feeder. I may start putting his food in the treat-feeders and cutting back on treats.

Advice please. Would this be a bad time to get a puppy? We lost our dog in May to old age. I just had a lumpectomy and expect to be doing chemo soon. Besides the obvious companionship, I was thinking it would make me get up and walk the dog, play with the dog, etc. My husband is having withdrawals from not having a furry friend, too. We are both retired so we have plenty of time to devote to the care, feeding and training of a puppy

Go for it!!! When doing chemo the first time, I couldn’t deal with spookies coat. So sent her to groomer, who also does rescue. Picking up Spookie she says, did you see my rescue? There he was , an 18 month old moyen poodle. 3 days later he was ours. I had a severe allergic reaction to taxotere, was pretty sick for a few weeks. Then had bmx. During all this, I wondered if I had rocks for brains, and falling in love with him. He’s daddy’s boy, that’s ok. He’s soooooo worth it. A house is just too quiet with out paws clicking. You won’t be sorry!!! Puppies are so much fun.
