Mockey...the dog.....................



Kati was talking about having a dog....there is something about "man's best friend"!! A lot of people don't want to take the 'plunge' into the dog world...they are a lot of work at first with the training and such, but there is nothing better than the friendship and companionship of a good loving old dog. That's what we have in our Mockey...our sheltie mix who is now a little over 16 years old...is a little blind, deaf, and slow to do the stairs and jump onto things, I noticed that he now walks up the stairs...no more running up stairs (I used to race him up the stairs, I can win now if that says anything)...he is a very healthy and very happy dog. He has so much love that it has made him such a good dog. He is always there for you...never judges...but has always been aware when you are sick or sad..he seems to sense that and is more clingy when that happens. He's a good old dog and it will be a sad day when he leaves us..............we love our Mockey!! Thanks for the memories old boy....(I hope all the kids continue with this great tradition of loving and caring for a wonderful pet....it's a good thing to do....lots of LOVE!!)


Ok....Kristi and I just had a good laugh!!! Kristi took that picture of Mockey, the one that is on this blog...I thought it was just an adorable picture of our precious doggy....well, if you look closely, he has his left leg lifted, and YES he is peeing on my frozen tomato plants!!! Now there is a picture to remember!!!

I have been thinking about asking Breon and Sherline about getting a dog to walk with me in the mornings. We would go to the pound. I also think it would be good for MAX. What a Christmas Present that would be.

Max would love to have his own little doggy, you might have to wait until you get your own home though, but it would be nice if Breon and Sherline would let you have one for you to walk with...how big do you want to go?

Um Medium, No Shedding. Maybe a Lab.
