Sadly, it looks like our other dog is going to have to be put down.
Oh no, that is so sad after losing Spanky not so long ago. You have my sympathies, Jim, that's gotta be real tough on you.
On a brighter note, I just became the parent of a 3 week old pup named Buddy. He is one of the 3 that Angel and Dazza made together, and a real cutie to go with it. He was first born and runt of the litter, so he needed that little extra attention and I became attached to him while ensuring he got fed and etc. At first the mother was just going to abandon him, so I made sure she fed and cared for him. Now at 3 weeks he is thriving and growing well, though he's still smaller than his brother and sister. Anyway, I've not had a pet to call my own for a while so I decided to keep him.
I like Buddy the most out of the three pups, and I think the feelings are mutual. Whenever I go in to check on them he shimmies toward me and whimpers until I pick him up for a cuddle. Once in my hands he nestles in to get comfortable and is quite happy until I put him back the bed with his mother again Yup, I think Buddy and I are going to be great companions... and hopefully you'll eventually meet a lovable bowdler who'll melt your heart and make you wanna take it home.
Bowdler? Yup, dogs go bow wow.... and a creature who make such a noise is obviously a 'bowdler'.
