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.

These two will chase a ball, won’t bring it back. Spookie hides her ball under a pillow and digs it out.
I had a miniature poodle years ago, THE most ball crazy dog I’ve ever seen. She wanted that one favorite ball. I could throw 4 at once, nope, THAT one. She’d rip the fuzz off. Then it would break in half. Still wanted THAT one. She barked with it in her mouth, tried to drink, and slept with in her mouth. Tore both ACL chasing it. When she went to the Bridge at 15 1/2, her canine teeth were completely worn down, from tennis balls

ohh i bet she had soo much fun with that ball :D its awesome to see a pup find joy in a toy
My boxer loves canvas toys the best and loves to growls when playing with them, she has 1 fave that we have replaced a few times, as you can see its a far cry from a ball but she loves em dearly :D
Definitely an interesting looking toy hehehehe

I found some really good deals on latex squeaking toys on Amazon. I like the latex, when it gets slobbery, they can’t hold on to it as well, and destroy it. Kris can kill a stuffy in about 30 seconds. Spookie doesn’t like stuffies.

Tippy's three current favorites came from three different Bark Box packages that my daughter bought us for Christmas. A nutcracker that dispenses kibble, an Oscar that is actually a disguised toilet that has a squeaker and some krinkly stuff, and the krinkly bottom ball of a snowman that has a branch irremovably running through it.
Hmnnn His birthday is next month........ His fifth on the 11th.
