Pet Messages

This is a photo of my late pug Winston. His brother Spencer is sitting next to him. When I think about it too much, I shed a few tears, they were wonderful dogs! But now I have three new ones that are near and dear to my heart.

Jack, my little hound dog is really sick. All we can figure is that he ate something very toxic and his body is trying really hard to get rid of it. We'll comfort him, fast him for 24 hours, then give him rice for a while and hope for the best. If he's not better by Tuesday, it's off to the vet. His spirit is very good and he really wants to eat, so that's always good news.

I'm sure some people think it's batty, but I really believe that dogs try to communicate to us. They can't speak our language (yet? lol), but they know how to get our attention. If he needs to go, he sits by the front door. If it's urgent, he will scratch the door and bark once. He's very smart. I asked him what he ate...but, sigh, he can't tell me! Wishful thinking!! :)

I keep hoping that there is something that will show me what Jack needs right now and how I can better help him. I'm going to shuffle through the cards and see if I get any insight.

Well Dakota ask for more than Lily. But I can read him so easy. Lily on the other hand only ask for me to let her out on the deck by looking up at the door and then she will come in and meow at me to come out. Dakota wants his tummy rubbed, under the cover, to be near me.....he is a mess.

Hi Pam :) Animals are very smart. They learn how to "train" us lol...Jack is all over the map sometimes, but when he really wants something, he shows us!
