Everyone tells me I was lucky that mommy and daddy rescued me off the streets (literally) of New Orleans. I return the favor everyday! I licked mommy’s stress tears away during law school and helped her study for the bar by laying on her feet. I cuddle on top of daddy every day after work so he physically can’t be stressed. I make sure to make them laugh everyday – they are happy I made us a little family!
“My mom works at a vet clinic and I donate blood every six weeks to save other dogs when they’re sick. I am Super Dog!”
Zoe is a huge help at the emergency clinic I work at. She loves coming to work (I got her there as a 2 day old puppy that was dumped) and I think she knows she’s helping! She donates blood for transfusions and has saved many dogs with her super blood.
“Today at the park, I peed on a man sitting on the grass. I lifted my leg so quickly my mom couldn’t stop me in time. I’m really not that embarrassed … but she was!” -Claude
Claude is a greyhound, an ex-racer who has been off the track less than a year. He is wonderful and perfect in almost every way. He is not 100% clear on when and where it is appropriate to mark things (or people, apparently) — today was the first time he peed on a person! He must have mistaken the gentleman for a tree or a shrub. Awkward.
Editor’s Note: My papa’s name is Claude, so this makes it just that much better!
Maddie the HERO!! Maddie is a 10 year old Lab who is trained as a TOUCH dog. She visits patients receiving chemotherapy at a local Cancer Care Center and spreads her canine cheer…. She is recent cancer survivor as well (notice the scar above her eye)!
When Diesel was 4 months old he was run over by a car (twice!). Smushed was an understatement! They didn’t think he’d live overnight but now he’s almost 7 years old!! He is mom’s miracle baby. It still brings tears to her eyes to think of that day. He definitely got some gnarly battle scars but he bring so much love and joy to everyone he meets! He needed months of daily vet visits and ICU stays before he was ready to run at the dog park again. He’s a trooper and mom’s furry best friend to say the least!
“I ate a hole in Moms wedding dress 132 days before the wedding. I’m not the least bit sorry”
In the 7 months we’ve had our french bulldog, Guinness, he has pooped on Dad’s bass guitar case, peed on Dad’s brand new cell phone, but the Pièce de résistance was this morning when he chewed a hole in Moms wedding dress. Enough is enough, he needed to be shamed.
Editor’s note: I got in contact with Devan, Guinness’ dog-mom, and she’s happy to report that the dress was repaired fairly quickly and the wedding went off without a hitch, Guinness was even forgiven and allowed to be part of the ceremony! Devan looked absolutely gorgeous! Congrats to the happy couple (and Guinness!).
