A Dog's Last Will and Testament

I've always believed that when an abandoned dog is adopted he is even more grateful than a dog who has comes from a breeder because he has gone through so much physical and emotional pain. Furthermore, I believe that in his final breath he is thanking his owner for the chance to love and be loved. I am also certain he looks down from heaven and hopes his owner will give an unfortunate dog another chance to have the comfort he once had. No other dog will replace the latter but I believe adopting another pooch will help in the healing process. 

What are your thoughts?

What I Learned About Dachshunds

I saw Max three times a day for the past two weeks and during that time he taught me that dachshunds are  

 excellent travelers,


deep thinkers,


and jokesters

which is why it was so difficult to say goodbye to Max on his 32nd visit!

No Bones About It My Dog Is Polite!

Daisy has been living in Dover for almost three years and has learned where she can snag a milk bone and one of her favorite places to wait for one is at the barber shop. I'm convinced that she also loves to gaze at the barbers because, I have to admit, they are a sight for sore eyes but that's besides the point. 

Just about every time Daisy waits for one of the barbers to open the door with a treat in hand but on this particular day no one came outside and she couldn't understand why even though the barbers held up their hands to indicate their milk bone box was empty. Still, she waited and waited and waited until she lifted her eyes up to the "Don't Kick" sign and walked away figuring that if she disregarded the sign she wouldn't get a bone the next time she stopped by. 

So there you have it! She can read, she's polite, and I've trained her well!

Jada Thinks There's Something Better Than Sliced Bread

Ever since I've known Jada her snack of choice was bread and if she looked at me with sorrowful eyes after eating one slice I gave her one more but as of Friday night she decided that

Town House crackers were much more tasty.

For me, watching her expression while she waited for 

her first bite was a treat!
