    We have a small wooded area behind our house that's loaded with frogs. They sing to us every night.

    Sounds enchanting! :)

    I smile when I see the garden in summer.

    My little Shihtzu Hank is now over 10 years old, and my buddy is still in pretty good health. He has some allergy problems that effect his ears, but we can keep that pretty much under control with medication. Lucy, Bichon Frise, is also over 10 years old, and she makes quite a pair with Hank. They can't stand being apart for any period of time. Lucy doesn't have any health problems that we know of.

    This is the latest update on my beloved Bear from his wonderful new Mom:

    "He has settled in and knows my routine. He likes the variety of proteins I give him. I cook chicken of course, pork roasts, beef roasts, hamburger, pearled barley, and I usually sprinkle some grated cheddar over the top. He eats everything I make for him. Sometimes I open large cans of albacore tuna for him, he loves it. He is a good boy!

    My 14 year old shepherd chow chow mix is failing. He has been diabetic for nearly 6 years and blind for nearly 4 years. He has had hip displaysia since he was a puppy and his back end is giving out on him. I have him on Rimadyl and Tromadol to comfort him. One for inflammation and one for pain, he still eats, goes outside through the doggy door, wants cookies and lots of lovins. He will let me know when it’s time. My heart is breaking. I have had him since he was 8 weeks old."

    My friend and I just laughed ourselves silly---she has a black lab she loves and she doesn't go through that much trouble for him! My neighbor thought I was a little over indulgent because I cooked chicken for Bear. Plus she gives him his treats. He is absolutely in doggie heaven.
    I was in the hospital for 3 days and it was so great to lay there and not worry about him. The last time I was in the hospital was just overnight and I was constantly worried about him even though I had a neighbor go by and feed him. He hates being alone. Now he has 2 other dogs to play with--though it sounds it may go down to 1 soon. But I know she will not dump him when he gets old or sick as many do because they are no longer fun. She's cared for her elderly one now a long time and I know she will be as kind with Bear. It just makes me so very happy to read her note.

    My wife and I seem to have dogs in pairs. Our last pair had to be put down at 16 and 18, and we still miss them. Our current pair both turned 10 several months ago. They become part of the family before you know it. We know why having dogs is good for your health.

    One of my daughters has a lovely little dog and it always makes me smile to witness - and feel! - his exuberant welcome every time I call in there. He can be very obedient and he can also be a mad little scallywag, leaping and careering across the furniture in excitement. He always makes me laugh and he looks back with a grin on his face. My daughter and her husband love him very much.

    Pets are wonderful, aren't they? We always had cats, but I can understand people loving their dogs just as we loved our cats. My neighbours' cats are a great joy.

    Thanks for letting us know how Bear is doing. You have been so unselfish in letting him go and it seems that the Lord is really blessing him in his new home. It must be comforting to know that he is in good hands and nice to get news of him. I'm glad you were not worried about him when you were in hospital and I hope that you are recovering from your hospital visit. :)

    Thank you---God knew what He was doing in getting Bear a new home---my health is going downhill and I am in hospice at home now. I would be useless for him in my present condition. I can picture him in his new surroundings for she has sent me pictures, and pictures of his toy pile, which I've never seen a bigger one outside of a pet store! It brings me peace.

    I'm pleased that you have peace about Bear and for the pictures you receive. :)

    However I'm sorry to hear that your health is deteriorating and hope that you are not suffering too much discomfort or pain. :hug: Praying for you, dear sister. :prayer:

    Seeing a dog (or a horse) take off and run for the pure joy of it.

    My little Shih-tzu Hank walks patrol around the perimeter of the inside of our house every night before we go to bed. We feel safe with such a fierce guard dog on duty.
