Carol, your Rusty is such a sweet looking little guy. Have fun with him.

medtran and Craig, I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your Pandora.

Addie, it sounds like you have a lot of fun with Teddy - dogs are so smart, and can pick up on so much from their humans. I miss having a dog.

Teddy is Spike's dog. But you just can't help but fall in love with him. If I don't see him for two days in a row, I call Spike and let him know, "I need my Teddy fix!!!" He brings him by that night.

I have never been an animal lover. But my girlfriend in California has four Yorkies. They are all named after New York. Brooklyn was my favorite. They referred to her as their whore dog. She would go to anyone who would scratch her or rub her belly. But you couldn't help taking to all of them. Broadway was the only male. He was always the Dog on Duty! He would keep the three girls in line. He died of old age and then they got Taxi. She is real tiny. Definitely a lap dog.

I'm sad for you and Craig, medtran. It's really tough losing a furry friend. Hopefully Mork and Mindy provide plenty of silly distraction for you guys.

Saturday night on NatGeo Wild, they had a show on Dr. Pol, Vet. about putting pets down. I couldn't watch all of it. Just too sad. You could see the pets almost begging to "let me go. It is time." I don't know who I felt worse for. The owners or the pets.

Teddy's Daughter

My new avatar is the result of Teddy's Dastardly Deed. His daughter. I don't know what they named her.

Thanks all. It was really, really hard to make the call to the vet and then the visit but, as I wrote, it was past time to let her go.

DH took Beagle, the aquaphobe, into the shower with him. Now she's shaking and rolling and flinging herself around on the carpet in the sunroom, and looking very annoyed.

Hard to tell. She's still flinging herself around.

When Teddy gets a bath, he won't even stay in the same room with Spike. The last time he kept his mad on for a full week. Totally ignores Spike when he calls Teddy.
