The Double Whammy of Death and Guilt When A Dog Dies

Have you heard of the five stages of grief that you go through when you lose a loved one? Supposedly, they are denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.

Neurotic Dogs and Psychotic Cats

I have always considered dogs easy to train and work with. This went totally out the window this winter when the stray cats arrived, beginning with the opinion of the feline mass that I was an old woman who severly lacked in intelligence.

My Rescue Dog Frida

My rescue dog Frida was brought in heavily pregnant and the shelter manager, amid protests from vets and staff, who wanted her to be allowed to have the pups, decided she should be spayed. No one expected her to survive, but she was still breathing in her cage after the surgery and that was when I first saw her.

A Dog Story: Aurora, Gone the Next Day ….

They said she was Twilight’s mother, and there was no doubt they were related because they both had a distinctive little patch of black round by the rump which stood out on Twilight’s dark grey and Aurora’s paler greyish white. She was certainly too big for the ‘little dog’ section and had been put in with a companion in a larger cage. At first she looked at me with dull eyes, and didn’t show much interest in coming outside at all, so I had to pull at her. Once out, everything frightened her, even the smallest of unexpected movements. I shuddered to think what she must have been through, and wondered how long it would take to gain her trust.

The Night the Tornadoes Hit Us

When natural catastrophes like the June 2014 tornadoes hit Central Nebraska, it scattered hundred-year-old trees, bushes, flowers, wire fencing, igloo dog houses and sheds full of prairie hay deep upon frightened dogs and two terrified elderly women,  it seemed hard to believe it had  happened to us. When we looked outside our front door, it […]

A Dog Story: Speed Demon Magnus

He was not a small dog, nor was he about to keep still for long, so I hastily made my way out of the kennels, to the car park, where I could set him down. There, he darted about at such a speed it made me dizzy. A couple of times he spun round twice, and looked as if he were about to drop a little load, but then he seemed to think it wasn’t happening fast enough, and with a leap forward he would be off again!
