I am an animal loving vegetarian. I have 4 dogs, 2 cats, 4 chinchillas and 6 fish. I donate as much as I can to animal shelters across the country. Those babies deserve loving homes too. Imagine their faces and how scared they are with no one to hold them or make them feel loved or to love. I love being with animals. I have studied dog grooming and dog obedience training. Odie has been undergoing training to be my service dog for seizures. He has been great through it all and is brilliant with commands.
What is one thing your dog does that reminds you to open your heart and love more deeply?
Odie will sit on my chest and stare me in the eyes when something is bothering me,when he pants it appears he is laughing.He is the chunky clown of the 4 and learning to save my life. When I am outside playing with them, Buddy will run after a completely different toy then what is being thrown. When we give him treats he plays with them first. He is the loner of the group (happy to do his own thing). We refer to him as no cents (not 50 cent) the things he does are funny and just makes no sense. No eyesight problems but walks into walls, goes in the wrong crate. Just a real funny dog. Chevy is like the Warner Brother's Tazmanian Devil. He will run upstairs, spin in a circle get into everything then stand on his back legs and makes a boxing motion to me. When I throw him the ball, he will bring it back at a distance then toss it back to me with his mouth. He was from a neglectful home. SHAME ON THE FORMER OWNERS LEAVING HIM TIED TO A DOORKNOB FOR DAYS SLEEPING AND SITTING IN HIS OWN BODILY FLUIDS! McGruff is the intelligent 1. He was a stray that appears was beaten. Some teeth are missing on his left side of his mouth, he is missing the bone under his eye socket, his face is crooked and when he came to us as a puppy his whiskers were burned. He is the loveable bouncer when the others play too rough, He watches everything and tattles (comes and gets us when help is needed). When I get sick from medicine in the middle of the night he follows me all over the place and will lay at my feet. Although McGruff went through something so serious, something so inhumane, he is the most loveable dog I have ever encountered. He picks up human girlfriends all over, sort of like a little pimp. He is spolied at the vet. Just the fact I have rescued my 3 from real bad situations makes me love them even more. They never had it from the start as purchased dogs have. 3 of my boys are rescues and 2 (McGruff and Chevy) were badly abused and neglected. They still love unconditionally when they should hate humans for what they have endured. I thank god everyday they came into my life and I will spend everyday for the rest of their life making them happy and spoiling them rotten. Not a day goes by that I am not with them in some fashion. All trips are off while they are a part of my life. Those babies deserve it. They are my kids. We have been very fortunate to have 4 male dogs all living in the same house and they all get along well. They even get along well with my cats and chinchillas. ALL 1 BIG HAPPY FAMILY! We have been blessed.

Your dogs are beautiful and you seem like a wonderful person, God Bless you all! Love, Jillian (Janet's daughter) Thank you for your kind comment about Tony, we were blessed to have him and his mom, Buffy, and our other golden's, Heidi and Winedance.
My dogs dont hold still either Denise lol. I take 100's of pix for every one that looks ok. My problem uploading pix had to do with the java function. I had to upgrade to the newest version to make it work. My old version combined with this site made it recognize my browser as netscape for some reason.
