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.

Adjusting to new furniture arrival! Unsure of where to go.

Tag is slipping guys. He can barely walk. He falls a lot. Slowing eating. Doesn’t give effort to eating his full ration. Collapses if brushed by slightly. But still he wags. And loves and doesn’t cry out or whimper. Just can’t walk or get up well. Getting difficult for me. He falls in the yard. I have to go help him up. Can’t leave him for long. Because Of heat stroke. Sigh. I can’t do this.

Micmel - sorry to hear this. When I saw you had posted my first thought was of wondering how your Tag was doing. He loves you, you love him. You will know when it is time to release him. I have two 14 year old boys and we are beginning to go through the same thing. On our "walks" now I watch because they can be unsteady. Sometimes hips are too sore to walk much. Sometimes they see a rabbit and they ignore all their aches and pains for a few steps. It is very hard to see them age. Maybe they think the same thing about us - bet they do. Sending hugs

Micmel,I am so sorry to hear this about Tag. It hurts to see our beloved babies like this.

Well, on my own doggie front, I haven’t gotten a new puppy yet. I applied for a puppy from a rescue and hope it goes through.

Been wondering how the puppy search has been going for you. Rescues can make you go crazy. . I understand they want to make sure the pet is going to a good place, BUT.

They make it so difficult. Seems like some want your life history, 10 years back taxes, and glowing reviews from any body you ever met.

After a friend lost her almost 16 yo girl, the house was too empty So we went to all the shelters here, looking for a small dog There was one that caught her eye Friend handed over credit card, new baby had a new home No questions Pup is about 2 now, has adapted nicely

Let us know.

You got that right Spookie! Plus it doesn't help with this virus crap that they are doing adoptions by appointment only and there are huge waiting lists and if you aren't lucky enough to get chosen to have an appointment you don't get a chance to see any puppies. And if you want to go through a breeder here, it can cost major bucks as they have raised their prices.
