“I was in disguise!”
Princess was groomed last night. It turns out that under all that fur, she was hiding a stripey body, like a little tiger. She’s even cuter than I suspected. Here are “before” and “after” pictures.
Princess is a sweet, shy dog from Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation in Falls Church, VA. She loves to play with stuffed animals and other small dogs. Once she bonds with her human, she likes to give kisses and cuddle. She is a smart, eager to please girl who has already learned her name, “no”, recall, leash walking, and crate training.
This is Tex, our 9 1/2 year-old Labrador Retriever. He LOVES to eat dirty tissues! He loves it when any of us have a cold. He has been known to sneak in the room and steal used tissue before we have a chance to throw it out! We have no idea why he does this, it’s pretty gross….but he’s not sorry.
Bean just moved in with her older sister Buster (13 yrs), and loves to be the annoying little sibling. She jumps on her and tries to get her to play all the time, and loves to steal and chew up her fancy Tempur Pedic bed.
Caesar, Cicero, Hiram, and Brutus came to live with me when they were about 3 weeks old as foster pups (part of a litter of 13 dumped at the local animal shelter). No one ever wanted them so they are my boys. This was them at about 7 months old. Now they are a year old and about 70 pounds each. Through this year they have chewed and destroyed sheetrock, 4 pairs of shoes, fabric for a quilt I was making, seats on outdoor table chairs, footboard of a bed, telephone cord, computer mouse cord, no-line trifocals, lined trifocals, car bumper, flashlight, carpet in the back room (it is now just a dog room), numerous dog beds, azaleas, dwarf nandinas, mimosa, ,tablecloths, bedspread, miniblinds, mattress pad, garden hoses, soaker hoses, $100 electronic collar, new dog collars, and 7 chairs. They have also scratched up hood on car and throw up in car every time they have to go anywhere. They have torn down fences and have dug up huge areas of the yard. I still adore them.
Editor’s note: You are an amazing dog-mom! Keep up the good work!
