Of course, while we were hanging out Suzie and Tina insisted on cuddling up to Joey. I got a couple of cute pictures, but trying to get a picture with these 3 subjects is impossible. Joey always has to make goofy faces, Tina refuses to look at the camera and Suzie's eyes usually have the devil glow thing going on. :)
This little chihuahua, Piper, had a human that loved her with all her heart and she had a great home for a couple of years. I think it's even harder on these dogs when they know what they've lost. Some dogs come from such awful backgrounds and they're have to taught how to live in a home with a family. But this little girl did have a home and though she's in a safe and warm home, with someone to care for her, she has to be so sad. Today she was so nervous at PetCo, she was shivering. A kind lady decided she'd buy her a new sweater to help her warm up. I wish a sweater could warm up her sad little heart. I wish nursing homes or assisted living places were more accommodating to allow a person's dog or cat to come with them. I'm sure it would cause a lot more work, but it would definitely bring a lot more joy and love to these places.
Companion animals are shown to do so much good for sick and elderly people - it just seems like a win win situation to me. But there I go thinking again! ;)
Right now, I'd like to let loose a gatoroid on the family who didn't step up to the plate to help Piper out. But isn't that the exact reason we ended up with Suzie and Tina?? Here's Suzie getting ready to give a kiss to her favorite boy.
