Quotes about dogs

I found this today in Rob Chrisman’s blog.

It made me smile, and made me miss my Rascal.

I’m grateful to have had dogs in my life.

Here, 14 dog quotes that capture the special bond between a human and their pup.

I miss my bunny, we all miss the Rascal.

It’s been a month, and I’m just not over him yet. My Super Frisbee Wonder dog, my fluffy bunny. He’s left a big hole in the house.

Our Dolly Girl… is not doing so great. She and I went on a walk today, she made it part of our normal journey, and she turned around to go home.

She’s lost weight. She doesn’t go outside by herself at all. I have to go with her, or she just sits by the door and waits for me to come back outside with her.

The funny thing about Dolly, she’s always been food motivated, and now she’s not. She doesn’t run barking at the door anymore.

Grief comes in odd ways, and it takes its time to leave.

The vet has gotten on me about her weight, and now, I can feel her ribs.

I hope she pulls out of her grief soon, she is breaking my heart.

Oh Wednesday

I learn so much from my dog.

If he can’t eat it or play with it, he will just pee on it and move on.

Great dog theories on life.

Love my Rascal boy. Isn’t he beautiful?

And he never lets me go to the bathroom by myself, especially in a thunderstorm.

What a dog.

Dog surgery update:  We are going into our 3rd week of recovery since the big surgery on the 13th.  Sedatives were given, pain pills, sausage, cheese, beef, lots of hand feeding and laying on the floor with the patient.

Things are looking pretty good.  The incision has healed well, despite the fact that we are on the 2nd larger cone.  Rascal circumvented his original cone and got to his incision one night.  Trying to keep the hyperactive animal entertained has been challenging, but we are halfway through the recovery process on Monday.

My husband released the hound from his Cone, and rubbed his neck for a bit.  Rascal was soooooo happy.

I think I’d like to be a dog for a little while.  Lay in the sunshine, be petted, fed, and just love the family.

What we do for the love of a dog.

My super frisbee wonder dog tore his ACL.  Now we have pain meds, sedatives, and a 6 week recovery.

The Vet laughed when I said I need a sedative too…I wasn’t joking!

I’m a little beside myself trying to keep him contained.  He’s made his cone worthless twice.  But he is starting to put weight on his right leg again.  He’s never been contained, but he is crate trained.  OMG…I’ve been hand feeding him, and I think he’s taken to it.  I may have created a monster.

Jeesh.  What I do for the love of a dog.
