Many families have pets including a dog or a cat. Some individuals have both. We all love our pets but when they pass we are heartbroken. Mary, from Mary’s Cafe’, had a wonderful dog who did pass away. He was a great dog. Whenever I visited her, the three of us would take walks everyday. He was a good dog who behaved and never bothered anyone. I am sad he is gone. As everyone who reads this blog knows, my daughter tends to rescue dogs. The first one is still with her. She is a great dog and even if she hears my voice on the phone, that tail of hers cannot stop wagging. My daughter has since rehome two dogs to older women who are very happy with them. I had dobermans. I had a female first whom I bred and kept a puppy. The puppy grew and was very attached to me. If I looked out the window, he would stand on his hind legs and look out with me. He was such a friendly dog that when I lived in Texas he would jump the fence to visit other dogs. The police always brought him home, though. One day a small dog started after me as I was walking my dog down to the field for him to run. He pulled me down on the grass on the sidewalk and dragged me until I let go. The owner of the small dog quickly grabbed her dog and went in another direction. When it was my dog’s time to go I was walking him in an open wooded area where I would take him to run everyday. All of a sudden he came running back, stood next to me, and then keeled over. My late husband stayed with him and as I was seven and one half months pregnant and ran as best I could to my neighbor. It was too late and like Mary I was devastated. Pets are wonderful as they keep us company, give us all the love they have and protect us and our children. I shall never understand the cruelty people do to any and all animals. In the Good Gus series the horses were the pets! The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
