  • I had an aunt who had two Siamese cats. One was Hey You, the other one Who Me. I've had animals for a week or so before I figured out what name fit them.

      We had frost last night and my heater is out. I was sleeping in a polar fleece robe. You'd think I was wearing a cat bed. The Siamese Princess slapped me for wiggling too much last night. The Buckster just tunneled into the guest room bed. When I got the cat cookies out the bed exploded.

            Nope... she still won't get her feet wet. She'll hop on two legs to avoid getting the other two wet... then she changes feet.

                  • Apachefire, those are adorable.You should adopt one.
                    I woke up to a these faces about 2 inches from mine and the stuffed face was hanging out of the mouth of the fuzzy face. The conversation went like this "No Sparky, mama doesn't want to play now. I worked all night while you and dad were sleeping."

                        • Here's Sparky's sotry for you, ApacheFire. It's copied and pasted from a blog post I did about him three years ago when he came into our lives. A few months before that, our 15 year old Golden Retriever had died from a heart attack and my husband was firmly against getting another dog. After writing this post, I found out that Sparky is not a poodle, but a Bichon Friese.
                          Sparky's Story
                          I’ve been wanting another dog for sometime now. No dog will ever be able to replace Red, but we have always had a dog in our lives and I was really missing one.
                          With the exception of a terrier mix puppy we got our son when he was little, our dogs have always “found” us. The people were moving and couldn’t take the dog, the dogs were abandoned, abused, neglected, etc.. They needed a loving family and we just happened to come along. This new little*guy is no exception.
                          About 4 months ago, this little white poodle started hanging out at our house. He would come speeding into the yard when he heard us outside, hang out for a while, then disappear. He started staying for longer periods of time. I picked up a bag of puppy food for him. He was all scrawny and underfed.
                          We found out that he was living down the road, so the next time he came over, we took him home. We explained that he had spent a few nights in*our house because we were worried that something in the woods would get him.*The woman instantly started telling us how the dog was pawned off on her daughter at a gas station by some guy on a motorcycle. (The daughter does not live with her). She complained about how the dog pottied in the house and was a general pain in the ***. We offered to give him a home. Then she started saying that it was her grandkids dog, etc,etc-all kinds of reasons not to let us have him. The dog continued to come over. She came after him several times and one weekend her grandkids were visiting, they came over after him. We didn’t see him for a little over a week after that. We figured he went home with the grandkids. Then one day, he was back. We decided that if she wanted him back, she could come and get him. That was almost 11 weeks ago and we haven’t seen her yet. If she wants him back at this late date, she better bring the police and a warrant with her. She didn’t treat him right.
                          He does love to chase armadillos deep into the woods, so when he goes out, he is leashed. I know he wants to live with us and not with her. I know this with certainty because about 4 weeks ago, he slipped out the door and took off. About 10 minutes later, he was back, racing around the yard with a stuffed frog hanging out of his mouth. He made a commando raid back home and brought “his worldly posessions” back with him. I knew then that he wanted to stay with us. We spoke with some people at the other end of the road and they told us that they had returned the dog 3 times to her. He did escape once after getting the frog and went to the other end of the road. They brought him back to us. Now all doors are latched because the little knothead knows he can open them if he jumps on them. LOL!
                          Over the 4th of July holiday, one of the neighbors from the other end of the road dropped by. I was just getting ready to take the dog outside. This guy couldn’t believe it was the same dog. He feeds the fox, coons and cats, so there is always something to eat at his house for critters. He was telling us about how one morning the dog was sitting on his steps as he left for work, looking very sad and hungry. He went back home, opened a can of cat food and said the dog jumped on it like he hadn’t eaten in days. So now, there are 3 witnesses to the fact that this woman wasn’t caring for this adorable little dog.
                          He has totally won my heart over and hubby’s heart, too, even though hubby doesn’t like admitting it. This little dog is adorable, smart, and his personality just sparkles and shines, so his name is Sparky. If you haven’t guessed, that’s him and Frankenfrog at the top. He likes to chew Frankenfrog up and now the frog has several stitched up areas on him, hence the name. Oh, if you are wondering, Sparky has yet to potty in the house. He goes to the door and lets us know that he has to go out and it isn’t to chase armadillos.

                          • Awww, what a great story Subeeds. It's so sad that folks just can't admit that they haven't got what it takes to care for an animal and will not learn or help the animal find its furever home.

                            Our girl is a rescue. After we lost our heart dogs within 6 weeks of each other both hubby and I swore off getting another dog as we were heartbroken over losing our guys. Then along came the psycho collie and it was game on for us...lol. We tell people she's a work in progress.(about a 15 year WIP...lol)

                                once an animal LOVER, forever an animal LOVER. it really makes me feel sad when i hear the lifespan of a dog is so short. i thought they lived forever…and i suppose they do, once they are in our hearts.

                                  my turtle died.

                                  i want to use his remains as a rattle or a medicine pouch.

                                  im sad about it all, but i still get to see him if this happens
