I can fix that! They call her terrier mix. Her face looks like like a pug with boxer's snout. She's just a little over 30 pounds- all muscle! I wish I could take credit for those photos. They really...

That's what they told us. Oh, dear. I would hate if she were the reason we had to move out of our crappy, tiny one- bedroom apartment. :eek:

It's been less than a month since we lost Truman to HSA. He was such a good boy- from the moment we saw his goofy smile at the local shelter until he gave me his last sloppy wet kiss. People might...

We lost Truman, our 11 year old possibly-Kelpie-mostly-mutt, to HSA this week. I'm nowhere close to being ready for a...

I just wanted to pop in to say that

won't drink, but will lick condensation
from a glass.

We're taking off the doughnut when we can keep a close eye on him. He hasn't tried to lick his tummy yet, but I'm sure he will. He really does need to eat with his medication, and that's a concern....

A Good, Good Dog

I wanted to share a Truman story with other dog lovers.

We took Truman to the vet today. When she came into the room, I said, "This is Truman- a cocker spaniel." Without missing a beat, the vet replied, "So am I".
She declared Truman to be 100% mutt. I...

This is Truman. We just brought him home from the shelter yesterday. His official paperwork lists him as an English Cocker Spaniel. Umm... I don't think that's right. :eek:
