Default Smkie, how is poor victor?

I have just been so worried about your boy. There is something so tragic about a baby losing a piece of his innocence. It breaks my heart to know that anyone should be afraid of something they once loved. In a small way it takes a bit of joy away from the people around them, since so much happiness can be found in surrounding oneself by innocence. for a moment you can recapture what it is to be pure and sweet and whole, even if just for a little while. I think it is the reason so many people adore holding newborn infants. But anyway, sorry about that, in a bit of a funk today. How is Vic? Is he doing better? I am praying that it is so. Such a sweet boy. Good luck.

He is better..i have made it a point to walk him right past Onyx's house..(with a mean switch in my hand just in case) so he will think that if i am not afraid..maybe he won't need to be either. I also wanted to be prepared if Onyx did come out to show her I wont tolerate her attacking him..in a situation where i was prepared..not across the yard where i cant reach her. I wasn't sure if it would work but i think it did indeed help his confidence. Today he played freely and happily with Logan in the yard..he still will not be tied on the porch..and will not be outside alone..not even with Logan, i tried to go inside and Mary followed me so he stopped chasing bubbles and shot straight inside (he's no fool). Thank you so much for asking..and caring. I feel exactly the same way about a child (and pup's) right to feel safe in their own enviroment and their innocense is so precious.
Sunnypup..sorry about the funk, been in one myself. Got a call from a woman i babysat as a child. I haven't seen her for a decade and ran into her at the park. SHe is in a terrible place in life and it just completely broke my heart. I am going over Friday to help her get her lawn mowed and see what we can do to get her car going. I talked to her today so i feel minutely better about the situation. She has two small children and is going thru a divorce, broken car, problems from every direction. THere never was a sweeter child ...My Mary dog is named after her. She has no one to fall back on, and i wanted her to be my daughter so badly back then. She told me I was a mother to her...and i am going to try to be now. It made me so sad to hear she was like this..she deserves way better from this life. I hope your knee is better my friend..wish there was something i could do to make a smile on your face..hugs to you and the dear Sunniest of pups!

it makes me feel so good that you all care for my little rescue pup. I want to thank you all straight from my heart. Hugs! Mom says he is a different kind of dog..very human acting..even when he sleeps she says he lays like a child or a person would. I feel so fortunate..especially when Bronki was my life..and then torn away so young. Victor coming to me..when i had no money..to be given to me and the adoption fee waved..Mary's acceptance of him and then the joy i now see in her as they cuddle and play. I can't imagine her without Victor. He has not replaced bronki in the least, but lifted me and Mary from our sorrow and restored us to happy life. I like to think that Bronki would approve..I hope we have his blessing.

aww Smkie how could we NOT love him, the way you describe him and the way he has helped you and you being as awesome as you are! I feel like if I were to meet you and vic on the street we would hit it right off. As for human like behavior I think I know what you mean, and Sunnypup came into my life right when I needed HIM too. Never a replacement for Hunter (or my ooooold girl Dixie dog for that matter) but someone to help fill in the hurt spots with someone else to love and hold.

Glad to hear Vic is building up some confidence, poor guy. Carey was similar after she got bit by a neighbor dog. She used to run them out of our yard(no matter how I called her back ) But after she got bit, she would see them coming and run to me. The big dog that bit her is gone now, but if I was a lesser person I would let her go after the lil one that still comes around just to get some of her confidence back (yes I know that would be stupid, that's why it was just a thought) It's just sad that my own dog can't be in her yard without her/me worrying.

it is sad!!!! i am sorry your pup was bitten. This neighborhood of mine is getting worse and worse about letting their dogs go. Poor Logan was chased into his own house and scratched up too!.......(and i am glad you don't let her chase them) afraid i am not as good about that. i let Mary charge that dang sharpeii mix out of our garage and yard on a regular basis. I am sick of his eating the cat's food and tearing up our trash...(as well as doing his daily constitutional right infront of the porch) I love the way Mary looks when she has done her job...i swear she has a sly grin..wag wag. If he was little i might not be so mean. Shame on me...How long ago did your pup get bit?

I think it was around January, b/c it was before Smokey died. It was a big white german shepard who bit her. She does still chase the other dog, but she'll chase him out of our yard and all the way into theirs, and I'm scared of what she'll do to it if she catches him! Those neighbors at hte end of our road have had so many dogs since we've been here(bout 7 years) I'm not sure I could count. They just throw them out in the yard and let them run all over. The white german shepard I think finally someone did away with him, I just feel sorry for the dogs, like you do Onyx, b/c it's not the dogs fault they have idiot owners! Carey goes out in our yard (it's not fenced, hopefully will be soon) and I keep an eye on her. She never sets foot out of our yard except to chase something that's been/is in our yard. I took Carey to vet when she was bit b/c she hadn't gotten her rabies shot for that year yet, they put her on antibiotics but put her under and charged me room and board to give her the rabies shot!! They are scared of big dogs for some reason now, I have to find a new vet. I will not be letting them put her under every time they need to do something for her. It's ridiculous, all the would have to do is make up with her a little first. How is Mr Shaffer doing?
