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.

My precious boy Deeohgee went into sudden congestive heart failure on Monday morning. I am beyond broken and shattered my family is suffering with this loss. My kids are not doing well. We owned him 12.5 years and he was the best dog I could have asked for. I love him dearly I cannot let go. It’s been a trauma at how sudden it all happened. Hug you fur babies for me please. Mine are all gone now. I am so heart sick.

Micmel, I am so sorry for your family's loss. When our previous dog Hilts died, I cried for over a week. He was so sweet and my heart and house felt so empty. 💔

But at the end of that week, we got another dog. I couldn't replace Hilts in my heart, but I needed a dog in the house. So we adopted Winslow, who was seven at the time and is now thirteen. Here he is pretending he's living in the 19th century last week. As you can see, a totally different type of compact dog style. ❤️

Micmel, sorry to hear about your precious pup.

A week from tomorrow, my Nugget will no longer be a puppy! He will officially be 1yrs. old! Oh my dog, I forgot how funny it is to watch a dog play with a piece of ice or eat ice cream that is made specially for dogs! Nugget makes me laugh so much!

I had this made for my precious fur babies. I miss them so very much. It's so hard without my buddies. We got his ashes home Tuesday and paw prints so he is home now forever with his brother. My heart just hurts.

Very sweet!


It's hard to believe that the sweet little puppy I got at 4 months in Sept. will turn a year old on Sunday! Gone is the puppy that he was and here to stay is a sweet little doggie!

Love the fur babies at all stages, but enjoying the fact I can binge watch shows without checking on Punk's whereabouts. He is probably sleeping on his favorite couch!

Spookie's mom, that picture got some laughter from me, too. When I got to the store with Tippy, on my scooter, I leave him, telling him to be a good boy, while leaving a treat on the floorboard of the scooter. When I return, the treat is still there, and he won't eat it until I tell him that he has been a good boy.
