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.

Mommy, tell your friend that I send her virtual hugs. Tippy alerts me to a lot of stuff I would otherwise miss because of my hearing loss, He eases my loneliness and depression. I can't understand the depth of losing a friend like a Seeing Eye dog, but I can imagine it.

Jackie, I love that tee. That is one of the sweet nothings I tell him.

The blinker road rage dog is so much like some people.

Hello fellow paw parents,

Been awhile since I checked in but so nice to catch up on some adorable paw pics. And sending hugs to paw moms and dads whose little ones crossed the rainbow bridge. They are probably playing with our Kit Kat and Tucker now.

Domino and Finley are doing great and just got groomed! It’s a lot of furry cuteness right now. Hope everyone is well.

My DS's dog is a beagle-dachshund mix who is a bit of a butterball due to her hoovering and food aggressive behaviors. She is a rescue so we feel that her first home was in part responsible for her food behaviors (yes, she has a speical food bowl). I took her for basic command training and the instructor would always single her out for her poor "sit". She has the dachshund body so with her very short legs her "sit" was different than that of her long legged classmates. Finally one of the other owners chimed in and said "well, from where I am, she is sitting" and the instructor finally got the message. When you are as round as a sausage, have short legs and a big butt, there is not much space between standing and sitting!

Tippy has started begging for music. He is taking his first nap with Celtic Woman channel on Pandora. Lots of high-frequency stuff. Just not happy unless music is on. I think I have finally gotten the right kind of "brush" for his shih-tzu coat. The previous grooming business kept telling me he was matted, without giving me any feedback on what was needed to prevent mats. I now have a mobile groomer, and I think it is a gentler technique. I enjoyed holding his head so we could cut the hair from around his eyes. She told me exactly what he needs.
