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.

I am knitting a sweater for Tippy. I had to set it aside because I was aggravating arthur. Soon as the pain goes away, I will work on it again, but only 30 minutes at a time.

He is being grouchy today. I think it is because we have a weather change coming.

Nugget loves when I crochet, especially the big afghan I‘m working besides his blanket. He jumps up in my lap and crawls under it to stay warm.

Daddy spoils him rotten too. He takes him on little car rides and everyone goes nuts over his cuteness.

I found out what was bothering him. I think he had an allergic reaction to the shampoo that the groomer used. He ended up with some scabs on top of his head and around his tail from itching himself. I had given him two baths since then, and the scabs were working loose, but he couldn't get to the ones on his head. I gave him a good brushing, and he was content.

Need to send a message to the groomer to use a hypoallergenic shampoo, or I can send what I usually use for him

Oops, I think my post disappeared! MC, I'm glad you figured out what was going on with your pup. It's so hard to watch them be uncomfortable but it's great when you can "fix" it! :)

He is doing fine. We just got back from a walk. He was doing the zoomies with moosie. He has killed moosie many times over, but moosie doesn't look much worse the wear, after six months. I like it, has ten different appendages for Tippy to grab onto, and a brand-mark on the rump, right where the squeaker is.

Sounds like Nugget’s stuffed tiger toy Tiggy. When Nugget gets a hold on Tiggy he whips it around by either a paw, tail or the body. I’ve had to duck a few times when he let Tiggy fly!

Yes ,Micmel, what did he do?

MOmmyof2 what breed of dog is Nugget? By the way, I love the name Nugget! I had a belovedrescue dog who looked similar to Nugget.

Thank you everyone for posting pictures! You add happiness to our lives at a time when we desperately need it! Dogs are awesome!

He’s a dachshund mix. What the other part of the mix is a mystery. The rescue where we got him from was calling him Copper, but when I saw him I thought he looked like a little Nugget of love.

I love the name "Nugget". It's perfect. When we adopted Jeeves, his registered name was (no, I'm not kidding) Archie Pooh Mohawk King. It was my dad who came up with the name Jeeves. In retrospect, I think Gilligan might have been a better name for him.

Sunshine, I think our dogs have a way of telling us if they like the name we give them. The first time I called Nugget by the name we gave him, I got kissed to death. His nicknames are: Snuggy Nuggy, Nug-Nug, Noogie Boogie, Slug Nug.
