It's a DOG day...



I am linking up with Tam today for "Three Or More Tuesday" here:

http://www.thegypsyscorner.com/



Last night I saw a video clip of a dog being pummelled by a mama doe who was instinctively protecting her fawn. The dog was just minding its business, and the deer were in the neighborhood (out of THEIR element) and I felt so extremely bad for the sweet unsuspecting dog. It made my stomach turn.

It made me once again realize how very very much I love our four-legged family members. They add so much to our family. (yes, including much fur....) but I can't imagine life without them now.



If we ever have to pick up and move, they WILL be with us. NO dog left behind...
Whereever we would go, fencing would be at the TOP of the list. Funny how your priorities change when you DO have pets as family members.

I thank and credit my Jonny for the photos of the dawgs.


Kobe, my Renegade Cowboy yard digging boy.


Rob Roy -"Woobie" Justin's "LoneWolf" Marine padawan...


Gideon - my Angel sweet velcro marshmallow...

If you are a dog lover....then you know. I'm just sayin'...
Hugs to all stopping by to visit. God Bless you!



Thanks to all of you for praying for our military heroes as they defend our freedoms and courageously attempt to defuse terrorism for people all around the globe.

Although I am without a faithful
companion since dear Gabriel's
passing, I am and will always be
a dog lover. I've been blessed to
share life with some very sweet
doggies and hope to have another
when the hurt over Gabe passes.
Your babies are precious.
Love,
Sandy

We got our cat from "CraigsList". She was left behind when her owners moved away.... the neighbor couldn't keep her and so we did! I know this is about dogs... but it reminded me how cruel people can be leaving an animal behind to fend for itself. Our animals are family! You pick em... you keep them until they are gone. Just saying....

Beautiful dogs! I don't have animals but sure do love my grand-doggies! They are a part of the family and are treated like royalty:)

Enjoy your day my friend and let me know when Justin leaves the war zone!

Love you bunches! HUGS!

I love your dogs and my dogs and all dogs! LOL When hurricane Katrina hit, so many had to leave their dogs...it broke their hearts and America's hearts. Since then it seems people have really held on to their dogs..even motels will take them now where once they wouldn't. Love them ;D

I was never a real dog lover but we have two and they are just as much part of our family as anything! They greet up when we come home and are probably happier to see us that anyone we could ever go visit! Love this post! Please let me know when Justin gets out of the war zone I know that you will be so relieved!! Blessings from Georgia!

Oh, I kno what you mean...I am right there with you! I sew up the holes & poke the stuffing back in Ms. B's pink piggy...I start my days off with wet dog kisses & end every day with a paw around my neck and a wet piggy on my pillow....she & I spend so much time together. When there are days that she is home alone I call her up & talk into the answer machine :) silly girl!!! Have a great day! Praying for Justin....

I think that video clip was from B.C. It broke my heart to see that poor dog and the sound of the owner screaming in the background what gut wrenching.
There are many, many deer near our cabin and we always worried about our dog chasing one. Even if they didn't attack the dog the conservation officers can have the dog put down for chasing a deer.

It is crazy how attached we all get to dogs...totally worth it though!

If you ever have to buy a fence, I'd recommend the radial-shape wireless dog fence from Havahart Wireless. It works with two dogs and covers a ton of ground. It has worked great for us.

When you asserted that the dogs would definitely move with us if we ever move, I had to stop and think. Why *wouldn't* we take them with us? That we would just goes without being said. And then I remembered all the experiences from rescue, and how so many people don't take their pets when they move. The idea is so alien and incomprehensible... I'll never understand.
