He never met a dog he didn't like
RIP Mumford, my little rat dog who thought he was a cat, thought all dogs were created equal, hated leashes and all things restraint.





I'm writing my lap dog's obituary. He came to use in the spring of 2013, a failed Christmas present who needed a home. I opened up my home and my heart, and my lap and soon he shared the big bed. He refused leases, hated all things restraint. We were a lot alike. He loved the cats, would give them snuffles and kisses, and his happy place was under the fuzzy blanket next to Scout. Boo would give him a bath. I tried to bath him with Gender Bender after he played with the skunks, but he really wasn't foo foo and didn't like to bath. He hated car rides. He loved Gorda, when she lived here, and the big Dogs. He really loved Pepper, and He would have lead an alternative lifestyle if he was human. He would have been a biker, wearing leather and metal, if he was human. He was annoying when he wanted what he wanted, and would not take no for an answer. We were a lot alike. He loved cat food, and woudl steal the cat's morning can to binge. He left us this morning, on the way to the vet, after altercation with a neighborhood pitbull. He weighed 8 lbs. The pit probably thought he was a toy. It was a long night, after the police officer followed him home. He cried in my arms till about 5, when he got down and got a drink of water, and laid down by the water dish. I haven't slept yet,, I haven't eaten, although I did take my meds. Bailey buried him out back, by Lisa the cat, our pet graveyard. We had to be creative to keep Hami from digging up the box. I haven' really poshed. At some point, I have to return to the world of social work,and of dieting but I can't stop crying. I loved him.
