Pets & Health

Awww Shucks.....

Animals make really cool friends.  My dog has never told me she’s sick & tired of lying on the couch with me.  Never said my hair was whacked or I was too sweaty when I felt bad.  She quietly, patiently hangs around.  Snuggling & snuffling at JUST the right time to make me laugh.

When things get really bad & we’ve been couch-bound for a couple weeks, she’ll get her toy & put it on the sofa with us, as if to remember the good old days.  But she’s never pushy or rude.


Mommy's little lady

Having her during my down times has made my life much better & I’ve had a barrel of fun with her during my good times.  She gets toys & treats.  She does NOT get clothes or bling–because she doesn’t like them.  Sometimes I’m tempted though…

I want to give credit where credit is due.  My little Tiny has done more good for my health & sanity than medicine ever could.  Once, I rescued her from life as a hungry stray–now she saves me every day.  Wow, what an awesome investment!!

    My dog is lying on the bed with me right now! When my mom broke her wrist last week and I drove her here to spend the night, my dog, Callie did not jump on her. As soon as my mom parks her car Callie goes crazy…but she knew my mom was hurt and she didn’t bark, or jump on her AT ALL. I even wrote a love letter to my dog on one of my blog posts!! She deserves it.

      Hi Tammy! Hope you’re feeling better and I’m glad Lucy is there for you. I had a black lab named Peaches and she always new things before I did–I totally agree with you. Thanks!

    Thank you for reading & double-thank you for the feedback! My pets have saved my life more than once. I’ll have to do a post all about them–7 in total–all rescues.

    Fabulous! I rescued my dog from a shelter too and she is an absolute joy in my life. You don’t know unconditional love until you have a dog. Thanks for sharing this post.
