As I walked out one evening
« on: August 07, 2014, 09:32:16 AM »
So I loaded my pack trail ready. Took a walk in the cool night. And we made it 2m, (thats 3.2k theyer  :P) When from the shadows crept an evil demon cat crossing our path. Puppy, having recently been soundly beaten by a Maine Coon cat stopped short and pulled in close to my feet. It happened so quick I stumbled and fell. Skinned one knee pretty bad. That was how far we made it, walked home. Little stiff this morning, but really par for course. On the upside, I can carry a pack. May still need work though.

4m total, blood makes the grass grow green

My bulldog Zita used zero in on boo boos all the time . She also used to go right to the two places where I had cancer on my legs . I wish I could bring myself to get another dog but just not ready now and I feel like I would always judge and compare a another dog to Zita .

Poor little doggie, hope your fall didn't cause lasting affects for him.  (OH, and sorry for you too).  ;) 

I've been checking all the rescue sites daily.  I don't just want another love, I NEED one.  I recently checked on one at a rescue center and she had severe separation anxiety.  She cried and clawed at the door the entire time the staff lady left her with me.  I'll find the correct fit eventually.  I wasn't even looking with I found Miss Lily and she was the light of my life.

My crazy neighbor lady has one of those small shaking, nervousy dogs.  This little gal makes a beeline to me whenever she is let out.  My neighbor is astonished by that as she runs and hides from everyone else.  She said I obviously have a personality that dogs are in tune with.

Have a great day.

get a dog wolf, nothing compares

jeff, i totally understand you

this is

Lady Godiva of the Lake... Diva, she was with me for 14 years. Lost her same month I lost Billy. Took four years, a couple breakdowns, a friend forcing me to pet a choc, and my sons finally insisting on it. I still have her last collar for Bijou

Diva certainly was a beautiful gal.  My younger brother has always had labs.  The day after my mother died, he was sitting on his porch with his lab laying peacefully next to him.  As he stood to go inside, Lacey didn't follow him.  He had died quietly with no signs of anything being wrong.

My older brother has a yellow lab that is also getting up there.  It's so sad when you see them struggle to go up and downs the steps.

deep breath

april '10 after the accident, when billy didn't home... diva finally stopped walking much. then not at all. less than two months later she cried because she couldn't get up to relieve herself. vet, personal friend, had already brought it up. then she pushed for it. so, that was that. i held her

jul '10 i was dx'd, sure needed a dog that day

another deep breath, i just did that without crying

those dog stories are really hard. They're never easy. In fact they get harder and harder and right now my chocolate is 10 with gray around the eyes and nose. Today an owl flew down and did a fly-by right in front of her. Then flew up , perched on a limb, and starred us down. Boo was spooked. Anyway, add a boy to the story and it's more than heart-breaking. All my love.

LMAO... You're a twisted SOB and appreciate you more each day. 

I was never a dog person until we rescued our Jack Russell, Elway. There's nothing I do alone now. No where I travel solo. And I never lack for an enthusiastic companion. If only he wouldn't shed so much. I can't wear anything dark colored. Small sacrifice for so much love.

Theyer who is awaiting Taxi to have his Cast finally removed has been much delighted by the pictures off Fine Canines. His own Canine companion is currently having a very deep affair with her dog walker which is inevitable given that I have not walked her for 10 bloody hop along weeks.

All I can say is a certain friend and dog walker might want to watch his back if this develops any further.

Anyway I digress and also leave a trail off damaging evidence, I too shall be taking regular walks my pack or as we Queers say man bag will weigh bugger all , if I can help it but my distances and stamina will increase , until I can finally walk my bitch into renewed undying adoration.
