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.

Merry Christmas from Tippy. He likes to play possum second only to the game called "skool". Going for walks in the summertime is second only to taking an unsupervised romp around the neighborhood.

I love all the photo's!!!! My Christmas card this year had puppies on it, mostly because I want one! I almost adopted a Cavalier King Charles spaniel rescue dog I fostered a couple of years ago. She was so sweet, but I realized after having her a short time, that she wasn't going to do well with me. She had come from an abusive breeder/multiplier and she really needed to go to a home with another dog, to help her learn how to be a "spoiled" pet. There was a couple who wanted her and had another KCS, so while I was given the chance to adopt (and at one point thought I would), I gave her up so she could have a better home.

So, what is holding me back from getting a dog? Money. It seems every time I get our emergency savings account gets up to a comfortable amount, we have an emergency that wipes most of it out. This year it went to a clogged drain pipe leading from the washer! Ugh.

I guess it is like having kids, if I waited until I thought I could afford them, I would never have had them! I think as soon as the pandemic seems somewhat controlled and my husband and I are vaccinated, I will get a new fur baby!

Until then, pictures of your pups are always enjoyed!

Happy New Year to All!

Maverick there’s lots of dogs in shelters who need a fur ever home. Sometimes pure breed, some mixed. None have the outrageous prices breeders demand. Check out pet finders in your area. That’s where I found Spookie. Kris is a rescue, my groomer works with a rescue, and was fostering him.

Maverick, my dog Nugget is a Dachshund Mix. We got him from a rescue. The only way I would get a purebred like my previous dog, a Sheltie, is from a reputable and responsible breeder

Sitting watching a bowl game and I didn’t like what happened during a play and I yelled a naughty word and poor Nugget got jolted out of a sound sleep because of it. He gave me the “stink eye” before he went back to sleep.

Jumping back in after a brief hiatus (unintentional but work gets busy!) and so loved seeing all the cute pics of Nugget and Tippy and others and that indoor plumbing is hilarious!

Rah and Micmel - hugs to you, our senior pups are all together across the rainbow bridge now. Micmel - Pomeranians make amazing therapy dogs if you’re considering that!

Mavericksmom - I agree with others that a shelter is a great way to adopt a dog and for less expense. Tucker was a border collie mix rescue from a shelter, an amazing dog, took it upon himself to protect me and “the pack” and lived to 18.

Anyways, Happy New Year to my fellow paw moms and dads! Here are some holiday pics from Domino and Finley.

Mel, I love that!

We had our (mostly) sweet boy Jeeves put to sleep last Tuesday. The only good part was that we found a wonderful vet who came to our home. He went to sleep on our back deck and not in a sterile emergency clinic like our last two Airedales did. It didn't make it hurt any less, but this vet was so tender and caring. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

Run free, Jeeves - and please don't tell Theo or Oliver that you got to sleep on the loveseat!
