What is your dog's breed? (If you have more than one dog, please list a name followed by breed.)
I am an attorney and a black belt in aikido. "Uchi" is a Japanese term from aikido that means "strike." I wanted to give my boy a male name but still sounded cute. I am learning everyday how to communicate with my little boy, he rewards that by doing the silly little tricks that I ask him to do.
What is one thing your dog does that reminds you to open your heart and love more deeply?
When I cry, he licks my tears away and brings more joy to my heart. When I come home he brings me one of his toys to greet me. Whenever I look at his little smiling face, my heart melts and joy fills my heart. Whenever, he gets sleepy he curls up into my arms as if he is as small as he was when he first came home with me. He's my little gift to me from God proving to me His existence and that I will never live life alone.
Do you have a website or personal page (such as on Facebook or MySpace) that you'd like to share with other members of our community?
Anne Marie, Thank you for being my friend. Your Uchi reminds me of my maltese Rio who passed away in June. I was reading your page and read about the tear staining. Both of my maltese were lucky enough not to have this problem. Who knows why this occurs. Oliver drinks bottled water. I also cook organic chicken or lean beef for him. I sprinkle the Missing Link on his food. I also give him supplements everyday. His supplement intake is Hugs & Kisses. Oliver had bad allergies and his hair was scraggly and in patches. I was advised by a friend to purchase Hugs & Kisses. After three weeks Oliver's hair changed dramatically. He is like a new dog. He has alot of hair and its all white and beautiful. You can pull up online Warren Ecksteins Hugs & Kisses. Or call # 1-800-430-4847. Warren has a radio talk show in California and I called and was able to get two free Hugs & Kisses. I haven't seen this product at any pet stores. You never know this product may help with the tear staining. Its healthy and worth the try. Good Luck Elsa
