I can't pin point 1 thing. The day my mom died, perhaps at the very moment, Jack decided to lay his beautiful head on my chest. That is one of my most favorite things for him to do. Shortly after, my husband came in to tell me that my dad called him and told him what was going on. Jack stayed with me while I cried all these days since! He tried to keep us out of the house when the refrigerator broke. We think he may have smelled something burning. He's no drug busting canine, but he's a loveable, big old cuddle puppy!

Over Christmas break we took them to my grandparent's farm. It is so cool to see them run free. In the city there are so many laws and I get paranoid every time one of them barks when they are outside...thinking that someone will call the cops. In the country they were able to run around and just be dogs.

Horray for Tazzy !! You could probably put her to work as a "drug sniffing" dog :) I hope she got a big thank you from the police !!
My dogs are pretty laid-back. They are smaller dogs who live with "older" folks. I do have fond memories of them climbing the Appalachian Trail to Piazza Rock in Rangeley, ME last September. It was only 1.8 miles up, but something they are not use to doing (not to mention us), and they ran and sniffed everything.
I guess my memories are everyday, just having them with us. They travel well, and people at the hotels are always commenting on what good dogs they are.
I have too many Tazzy stories but I would have to say her "drug bust" was hysterical. For those that don't know. I was out walking with her, there were some teenagers that a cop was talking to on the side of the trail. Tazzy went crazy sniffing and found a bag of pot. I turned it over the cop. She bought them some extra trouble that day.
I think with Gypsy, I'm just so happy she is starting to enjoy moving. I think the best was recently when she actually RAN with me. Granted it was only a little over a block and done but she's doing it!
