Comments28/06/2017 #2 David B. GrinbergWhat a wonderful piece of storytelling, Barbara, especially for dog lovers like me. I had a Golden Retriever named Lucky when I was a kid. He had such a good nature and was so lovable. That is, excluding the times he would run away. Lucky was a big dog and could rest his paws on my shoulders when he stood of his hind legs (I wasn't yet a teenager at that time). Lucky weighed about 80 pounds. He was also every strategic and sneaky about escaping (or busting out, as we called it).
Lucky would lie on the floor in the foyer all quiet and unsuspecting. Then when someone came to the house he would time the exact moment before the screen door closed to spring forward and bust out in one fell swoop like a burst of lightening. We think he had a girlfriend in the neighborhood.
And while we were always worried about Lucky when he was gone for hours and couldn't find him, Lucky would always return home safely (thank goodness). May Lucky rest in peace up in canine heaven; I miss you, pal!
Thanks for the memories, Barbara, and keep buzzing!

Comments12/06/2017 #8 Robert Cormack#5 Interesting you bring that up, @Wayne Yoshida. I remember having lunch with a woman who came from French nobility. She married a man against her parents' wishes and lost everything. Sitting there in the restaurant, we overheard a man being rude to the waitress. My friend shook her head. "We were always taught," she said, "that the way you treated servants showed whether you were 'old rich' or 'new rich'." Apparently, there are a lot of "new rich" people out there with no manners. I expect it's the same at home with the dog.12/06/2017 #1 Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBeeHahaha--a jewel, as always.
I had to laugh at this: "If it humps your leg, you’ll probably get to second base before appetizers (with the woman, not the dog — although, hey, the dog has made the first move)." Having been a dog trainer/owner/groomer, if a dog humps your leg, he is marking his territory. He humps you? Maybe you have to do the dog, too.

Comments03/06/2017 #4 Charlene Norman@Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee I have been a dog owner for only 22 years. Because hubby has allergies, we can only have purebred, non-allergenic dogs. Bichons are our preferred choice. I remember being interviewed by the breeder for our first dog to determine if we were suitable parents. I thought it was odd but eventually came to understand completely the why. I guess we were suitable because we eventually become foster parents to her champion male stud. Your loving testament to the world of dogs is beautiful and oh so truthful. It is clear you were one of the best kinds of breeders. My heart aches for the holes you still have. I am so glad the memories of your fur babies are still vivid and thank you for your gift of so poignantly sharing with us.

I moved my eyes as best I could, and little Evie was staring at me, just staring unmoving, but making the low, guttural sound.

Perhaps because it wasn't quite the same person inside?"How A Dog in the Family Helped Me to Understand My Parkinson's Diseasewww.outthinkingparkinsons.com Then something profound and disturbing, but extremely important happened.

Comments12/03/2017 #4 Lisa (Panaccione) VaughtYes, and unfortunately degenerative myleopathy is a common condition in old age in our service dogs especially K9 cops and military, they do such strenous jobs.And they are big dogs. Even at their proper weight, its a common old age malady.
People get this too as they age. It's called Degenerative Disc Disease. We are able to do more for people re: stablizing the spine, pain control, accupuncture and chiropractic. Plus people can tell you exactly where it hurts.11/03/2017 #2 Lisa (Panaccione) Vaught#1 Javier, thank you so much. When I read about Sgt. Smith, it sure struck a chord with me. I held my first 'forever' service dog, Jet, in my arms as he was put down. The hardest and most heartrenching thing I ever had to do. He had cancer, and we couldn't control his pain anymore, I promised him never would he have any pain. It was Good Friday, and he ate an entire cadre of marshmellow "Peeps" on the way to the vets.
