Lucy, 2 years old, a Poodle Terrier cross and a rescue dog. My mini Schnauzer, Thaddeus, passed away last year. He was 17 years old.
What is your dog's breed? (If you have more than one dog, please list a name followed by breed.)
Lucy is a poodle/terrier cross. As she is a rescue dog, we are not too sure about her ancestry. She has very long legs and when she lays down, she crosses her long legs in front of her, just like a cat.
I have been an animal lover all my life... my Granny's influence, I guess. I also work with seniors, specializing in those with dementia. the most important things in my life are God, my husband and family, my animal(s), my close friends and my work.
What is one thing your dog does that reminds you to open your heart and love more deeply?
The way Lucy forgives ( as did Thaddeus) when I got too busy to play, or a walk was cut short before sniffing was over.Lucy loves me no matter what. And the joy she gives when I come home reminds me to be grateful for reunions with others, and appreciate the good things in my life the way she does.

Thank you for acepting me. I have been in the greiving stage and don't have much support. He has saved my life so many times, we are connected at the hip.
I would love to meet your sister and friends. I find that sharing with someone who will listen is helping me.
The more support, people praying for him, is something he has earned.
It is hard watching him get weak so fast.
Rusty has less than a month, the tumor is very large and moved to his broncial tube, lymps and other lung, so surgery would not have helped. Any signs of pain that can not be controlled, I will put him down sooner. He was a 52 lbs dog and now about 40lbs. He is weak but still has a sparkle in his eye.
Thanks for commenting on my blog post. I know exactly how you feel about not spending enough time. My mom tells me that Timmy would have played for ten hours a day, and was happy to have just twenty minutes, because he is a dog and time doesn't mean as much to him as it did to me. Maybe she's right.
