Me too!! love my fur babies. I have two an 8 lb Pomeranian named Murphy and a 47 lb Chow Chow named Hannah. Hannah was a recue too, I was actually looking to get an akita when I came across Hannah. Her situation was dire and she needed a home asap. Here it is almost nine years later and I don't regret it. She is the sweetest dog I think I've ever owned.

My screen name is cuz I'm such a nut and it was a scene from GH between Jake and his baby sitter...seemed fitting :D


Shoot we should start a thread about pets, maybe call it Annabelle the 2nd :D. I LOVE hearing about other people’s animals. I have 2 golden doodles & they are my precious babies. Paulie, 6 years & 70 lbs...named after my mother in law believe it or not...she would have considered it the highest honor & a 1 year old boy named Posey because I am a diehard SF Giants & Buster Posey fan...he is 45 lbs. Our cat, Pepperdine passed away 1 1/2 years ago at only 7 years old & we are still devastated by it. He was the king of the castle & we were all his loyal subjects.

Yes, start a pet thread! I have a 45 pound Decker Terrier who thinks she's a lap dog. Also a rescue with some separation anxiety issues for sure. I've never let a dog on the furniture or in my bed in my life but this dog does both! She won't even SIT on the floor. lol. But she's goofy and really sweet. AND she needs va jay jay surgery. :( Seriously, she's always getting UTIs because of the way she was made down there so we're gonna get that fixed with a "vulvoplasty". :?. At least it's not cancer like our first vet kept testing her for, which cost a fortune! Hopefully, this will be it with the vets for a while. Fingers crossed!

Our dog is Cocoa. She is an Australian Shepherd and Chocolate Lab mix and just turned 15 years old. Last October, she was diagnosed with kidney disease and was told she could have days or weeks or months. We had an early Christmas with her right after Thanksgiving. She started eating again and got stronger and she goes to the vet 3 times a week for fluids. So now we are looking forward to another Christmas with her!

It is always great to chat with another "crazy dog person"! Pomeranians look like small Akita's to me, love Chows too! There is something very rewarding about rescue pups. Lakota was pulled from a high kill " facility" where they still used gas (horrible). He now lives in a safe loving home, which is my honor to provide to him! He is so full of love, it just melts my heart!

BTW, great screen name!

Aww, thank you for your kind words. We love her so much. Your fur babies are so lucky they got to stay together. I believe mixed breeds get the best traits of both breeds and are the best dogs.
