I was shopping and noticed a home wanted advertisement for a 4 year old little Foxy cross dog, I phoned the owners and they brought Micky around to see me, Wow he was cute, we became friends right away, he looked very much like a Foxy than as his hair was shaved, see below, it’s growing back now as you can see in the Photo above, I’m not sure what he is crossed with but he is very active.
The couple who owned Micky were elderly and found that they could not give him the attention he needed. Micky had been very cruelly treated as a puppy and was in a Animal Refuge and than a few Foster homes, yes he has emotional problems that will take time and Love to overcome but we are friends now and that makes a big difference.
Mo-Joe has accepted Micky, although they don’t play together yet they are not aggressive towards each other and even sit together sometimes. They do have things in common, they love food, balls, walks and yes hugs and kissels too.
Below is a message I received by e-mail about the joy of having doggy friends, I’m sure you will enjoy it as much as I did and will recognize how True it is if you also have furry friends.
IF I DIDN’T HAVE DOGS
All flat surfaces, clothing, furniture, and cars
would be free of hair.
I could sit on the lounge and my bed the way I wanted, without taking
into consideration how much space several furry bodies
would need to get comfortable…
I could walk around the yard barefoot and in safety. I’d look forward to spring and the rainy season instead of dreading ‘mud’ season.
The most used words in my vocabulary would not be…
Out, Sit, Down, Come, No, Stay, and Leave him/her/it Alone!
My pockets would not contain things like poop bags, water bottles treats
and an extra leash.
I would no longer have to spell the words…
B-A-L-L, F-R-I-S-B-E- E, W-A-L-K,
B-A-T-H, T-R-E-A-T, C-A-R, B-I-K-E, G-O,
I would not look strangely at people who think having a dog or cat
ties them down too much…
I would not have to answer the question ‘Why do you have animals?’
from people who have never enjoyed the closeness of animals,
or been blessed by their loyalty, trust and appreciation…
I would be missing out on a lot of Happiness if I could not share my life
with my four Legged Friends, I give thanks for them,
they are a real blessing.
I hope you enjoyed “If I didn’t have dogs” I can sure relate to it’s message but than I do have dogs my M&M’s, which I Thank my Abba Father for.
