  •  rescue gratitude (11+ / 0-)

    I really do think they are grateful. When our standard poodle, Molly came to us from a hoarding situation (40 dogs in a small house), she was a ragged, skinny, terrified mess. Food, some grooming, a soft bed (ours) to sleep on, lots of petting and love, and another standard poodle, Emma to play with, and she is the world's sweetest, most loving dog. She occasionally looks at us as if to say "thank you".

    •  That's what Riley does. I think he knows (7+ / 0-)

      he avoided a bad situation in the pound where he had been taken.

        I don't know how.

        her name is bella.  she's about 4 or 5 years old and is the sweetest dog.  Loves cats.  can get a bit full of herself towards feeding time but otherwise is perfectly content to veg out on the sofa for hours at a time.

        •  How that pairing came to pass (0+ / 0-)

          must have been quite interesting.

          Riley loves cats too, with a sweetness that is very endearing. What great friends and companions they are!

            she has a tendacy to try and cuddle on your lap when you sit down.

            The cat is very rude towards her.  she tries to befriend the cat but it is usually rebuffed by a swat or two on the nose

            •  Leena Lu was supposed to be a year old (0+ / 0-)

              when we adopted her from the shelter. But when the vet checked her, we were told she was more like seven months old.

              So she came into our home as a baby, and she cuddled right up to her big doggy sister, Sophie. When Riley joined us, Leena bonded with him right away because they are both sweeter than Sophie.

              Now Leena leads both dogs into places I would rather they not go. She's definitely the ringleader, or rather, the perpetrator.
