My Baby

By AlexandraSD  
I didnt think i would love another dog as much as i loved my old dog poppy, who passed away last year after being with me since the late 90s, but this little ball of fluff has stolen my heart completely.

She is so faithful, so gentle, so obedient, and so playful, and such fun to be around, she chases balls and frisbees and old bits of rope constantly, is very vocal, and is just such a little character, i would be lost without her now, and she loves to be cuddled Smile

This may not be the sharpest image of a dog, her eyes may be a wee bit out of focus but i dont really care too much, its my baby and thats all that i care about.

A great photo Alexandra.
She looks like a Border Collie, which was the best dog that I ever had.
Very well done.

I'm getting a dog tomorrow from a family that simply don't know how to give a dog what he deserve and need. The dad in the family even called me earlier today with a very worried voice, telling me that the dog had bit his 20 year old son on his arm, and he started bleeding. My immediate thought was: So? I did not tell him this, but I did tell him that this changes nothing in my mind because I know any dog can change with the right direction from its owner. He then told me: Good, because then we don't have to put him down. Just listening to him say that frustrated me so bad, I almost lost it. In my mind it is never ever the dogs fault at all. All dog behavior is the owners responsibility, and more people need to know this. If your dog is biting people, that actually is your responsibility. That phone call just made me want this dog even more, because now I know I will actually save a life tomorrow, and that means a lot in my book.
What would you do if you fell off your bicycle? You clean it up, and carry on with your life. Clean up that arm and forgive the dog for being a dog, and accept your lack of responsibility and start acting up your part. To me it's insane that you're willing to take a life because of some blood on an arm. Are you going to shoot the neighbor kid for pushing over your garbage bin?
Anyhow, I know I'm prepared to take responsibility all his life, because I know how much a dog really cares and will show that to you, when you simply give him/her what he/she need.

The way i see it, once a dog puts their trust in you, its up to you to care for that animal as long as it is alive, and to do the right thing if the dog become really sick and the quality of life gets to the point where the dog cannot help herself any more, which is a horrible thing to go through, calling the vet out to put the dog to sleep is such a sad thing. I had to call the vet out to my old dog Poppy, who at 16 years of age, her health went down so fast, she became unable to walk, could not control her bowels and just looked so sad. Of course i held on for as long as we could but it was plain to see she was not going to recover, and it broke my heart so much but sometimes you have to do the right thing even if it does leave a big hole in your heart. Dogs are part of the family, well, i call Twinkle "my Baby" as i did in the title of this photo, and she is, she is my little baby but i know one day i will have to do the same again perhaps, its hard but its the right thing to do, no dog should suffer, not when they have given you so much love and protection and companionship.

Sharp enough - lovely dog. Since having our Westy 2 years ago my wife complains that I stop and "chat" to every dog we meet in the street. Not so..........

............I occasionally miss one or two Wink

Awww, will you get another dog? I personally cant walk past many dogs without saying hello and giving ti a fuss, even if they bark at me Smile since getting the sheepdog and walking her round the village, i am on first term names with pretty much every dog in the village, and their owners, and we always stop for a natter in the orchards when we meet!
