This is Sammie.  She is quite entertaining and great company.  She has a mouse toy that she loves.  I will hear her howling, growling, or meowing at it.  Next thing you know, she is carrying it around in her mouth.  Sometimes she leaves it in my bed for me.  She loves doing tricks for treats.  Actually, she loves treats and is willing to do tricks for them.  She does high fives and low fives.  She circles and sits on command as well as picking which hand the treat is in.  She is also very loving and follows me around the house.227E29E5-6ED5-4278-8AD6-73837242E998.jpeg

This is Tatonka, a two year old Chiweenie that was rescued from a hoarding situation. He was feral when we got him but in 6 months he’s become a love! His favorite place is on my lap!

We adopted Milo, a 1 y.o. German shorthair pointer mix first and then followed up with Kona, an 8 week old Australian cattle dog, a month later.  Milo looks a lot like Riley!

They are best buddies and an absolute joy though, as I expected, Kona is a lot of work!  Fortunately, both are quick learners.  Their joy in the world and unconditional love has been a relief during the pandemic.  Going for frequent walks (AKA squirrel surveillance missions) has gotten us out of the house regularly, which has been good for both mind and body.

The one positive side of working from home during quarantine was being able to spend quality time with my beloved senior German Shepherd Duke. Duke had gotten old so walks were short and less frequent. His favorite past time was simply sitting near me and looking at me with such love and devotion. He soothed my worries and gave me strength and peace. Sadly, our time together came to an end last week because of cancer. I am sure he kept fighting so that I would not be alone.

I grieved for two days and then started looking for another senior who needed a home.

Baby Bear jumped out from all the pictures I looked at. She finally has a forever home and is adjusting to her new life as we both are. Senior dogs have always been close to my heart and it brings me joy that Baby Bear can have love and happiness in her senior years.Baby Bear has a homeBaby Bear has a homeLoyal DukeLoyal Duke

Yes! We've had Teddy since 2011 and found Huey in 2016. And there are many others who came before them 😍

I've been adopting pets for the last 26 year.  Always have at least 2 dogs.  Have two standard poodles right now and a cat that we saved.  You are so right.  So important right now to adopt an animal.  I was reading that some people were actually giving up there pets because they were afraid of the animal getting Covid and passing it on to them.  So sad.   Thank goodness you would never know that in my community.  I believe just about every house in this community owns a dog or two!  Now that we're so restricted in what we do, people are out more than ever walking dogs numerous times a day.

I think it's so wonderful that a lot of people are adopting pets during the coronavirus pandemic. A pet can really help with isolation and anxiety. Have you considered adopting a pet, or have you already adopted a pet?

 

We adopted our Riley (pictured above) in 2016, and I'm thankful for her every day, but especially during these trying times!
