There is no better love or friend you will
ever have as a Dog you had for 14 years.
That's the way I feel. It's taken a year for
me to bond to my Daughters dog.
Maybe because I missed my dog so much.
I was alone at Christmas from 2002 till last year.
My Daughter moved to Maine.
During those lonely years, I only had My Dalmatian Thor.
He waited at the french door as I drove 2 hours
to Scarboro,Maine for Radiation treatments.
When I came home 6-7 hours later,
I could see him sitting at the French door.
As I got out in the garage,
I could hear him lapping the water.
He didn't drink all day.
I miss him so much I cry
Just like my dog, waiting.
They are Family.
How could you not
love this face.
Even if he knocked over the tree,
Believe me I don't know
how it happened.
I hope that
doesn't look out her window.
I am humiliated
on every time it gets cold.
I feel like a freak.
Get this junk off me.
I am an important part of this Family, I am a guard Dog.
I look silly.
We used to have a Lab, he was so smart. When my Husband started to lose his hearing,
that dog would pull his shirt when a car pulled up or the phone rang. Bugger was stolen.
Pugs are show offs.
Give your dog a hug or go get a dog
at the pound, save a life. You won't regret it.
