  •  Good Morning Senor Unoball. (3+ / 0-)

    Sorry for the delay to respond to your nice compliments about
    my diary and writing.

    I note that your Senor Unoball profile pic is a wide eye happy
    lookiing grey hound. Is it a grey hound? Is that your dog?

    He must run like the wind.

    Thank you again.

      He's our dachshund.

      But, at 14, he is now a very grey old man of a dog. Alas, he's got heart problems now and is on daily medicine, but he's still a happy, friendly guy, and I think he's still got a couple years left in him.

      Please proceed, governor

        describe Slinky at his old age is what I have relied upon to keep myself from having another dog.

        It is so heart wrenching and painful to see our beloved pet dog suffering knowing that he is dying. And the most painful of all is witnessing a dog in his last stages of life keep up its inner self persistence of trying to please us.

        I can see in Slinky`s eyes his obvious forced intent to please the person who was there to take his photo.

        I have seen several dogs, in fact I cannot recall how many, suffering and dying on me. As an old Granddad myself, I always get to take care of dogs for the kids.

        I am very sorry for Slinky. He sure looks like a perfect companion for anyone and seems like he does not ask for much.

        Much luck to you Senor Unoball. May Slinky live many more dog years.

          He's rescued, and we are his second or maybe third home. We've had him for 8 years, and I'm very glad we have been able to give him this chance for happiness.

          He's turned out to be a very good dog, and he certainly deserved a better life than he had been given.

          Please proceed, governor

            dog Senor Unoball. Sometimes when I see those commercials on television showing stray dogs seemingly pleading to be adopted by someone I can`t help but think that somewhere the dog had been mistreated or abused.

            I`m sure you have seen these commercials and if you look at the eyes of these dogs or cats that are up for adoption, you can see the pain that flows out at you.

            I thought of these commercials when you mentioned "rescued" about Slinky. Yes your dog is indeed very lucky and surely he must be a happy dog as well. Yes he deserves a better and longer life than he had been given by who ever abandoned him.

            Peace
