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.

Micmel, it tears me up when I see someone grieving over loss of a beloved dog. My daughter sent me the bedding from her beloved Carl. She wanted me to make a stuffed dog that she cuold hug and remember him by. I just sent her a litter of six. He was a Rottweiler. She knows, as do you, that immediately going out and getting a replacement could end up in dissatisfaction and heartache.

I agree. I won’t be replacing him anytime soon. We aren’t getting anymore animals. The kids are older and we don’t want to have another little one to start all over with. If I wasn’t sick. Definitely but I am. He was an older dog. Never a problem That’s why we can have him. I still have my other boy Deeohgee. He’s just a different breed and has different mannerisms. Tag, had it all. Always did. He was amazing.

So sorry to hear about Tag. I know he and my Jackson are romping together.

I think in some way Jackson aided us in the search for a new puppy. We will be adopting a 4 month oldDachshund mix by the end of the week. I cried after I got the call from the shelter to set up a “meet and greet” and adoption in the same day. All I have to do is get a collar for him.

congrats on the new find. So happy for you! I remember you all saying you would hear your pet or think you see them. I'm having that happen to me. I am certain tag will be Coming around the corner to wag his happy tail at me and come in for some love. God I miss that dog desperately. Haven't slept since he passed Insomnia has taken over a bit. I don't do to well with grief and we owned him so long. My bff said “you have been saying that Tag was going for over a year now, he was old “. I realized she was right. We had been not want to face how hard it was getting for him to do anything at all anymore. We just loved him so much. I'm just glad he didn't suffer, I want my pal back though. More than I had ever realized. I'm disappointed that I can't control how upset I get, Four days only right ? Not that long yet I'm not looney.
