My dog who I picked out ...And literally snatched from the jaws of death ..long story ..She had heartworm ..I wasn't supposed to get her ..But did ..<quoted text>
When my dog wants to go to bed for the night she will keep going to the bottom of the stairs and staring back at me. As soon as I get up she'll bolt up the stairs and jump onto my bed.
I used to have a schnauzer that hated to be left at home when we went out. He would flip the kitchen trash can over and then smear any coffee grounds all over the floor.
When we adopted the schnauzer he had been with the same people for 7 years. At the shelter where he was left he was so depressed he wouldn't do anything, not even take a walk.
The most touching and heartbreaking thing I saw was the day I adopted my current dog and took her home. She had been abandoned on the road as a puppy and then stayed at the shelter for a few months. A lady adopted her and then returned her to the shelter...twice. The local animal control officer was also a shelter volunteer so she decided to foster the dog in her home until I came along and adopted her. As we were leaving the shelter, Minnie our new Chihuahua, stood on her hind legs to look out the back window at the volunteer, and she cried and cried until the lady was out of sight.
Anyone who says animals don't have a range of emotions is just plain wrong.
Anyhow,..She likes me ok ..But her daddy ...they are stuck like glue!!!!!
