Animals prove it all the time, we can communicate without words, because I am a human being, I can communicate in multiple ways. Hence my blog, to express my thoughts, opinions, experiences. Sandy taught me that regardless of words, she always loves me, she would lay down her life for me.
This is a tough time for me, those of you who have never had a pet dog, or other animal, you are missing out. I respect not everyone likes having, and raising one in their home, however you miss out on great lessons that animals teach you. My dog has been the best friend I have ever had. She has loved me unconditionally and she has protected me, been my body guard. She is, and has been one of my most loyal friends.
The timing could not be worse, my dogs life is ending and my boyfriends brother is struggling with health issues, I can not go into specifics with his, because it is a private matter for him, and I pretty much write about experiences, circumstances, that affect me directly in my life.
This is a video for my niece Madison, she wanted a video of sandy, she knows she has an injured leg. ( it’s her right front leg) She tells sandy how much she misses her via the phone. This is a must do for my little Chickie poo. I shot this today 01/08/2013 ! Still practicing with video filming.
Sandy is my profile picture that I have on Facebook. I have 2 pictures on my blog of her that I posted back in 2009, one of Max, and I need to get a picture of my brother’s dogs. They are all family. So I am introducing her again on a more personal level. I had taken some videos of her a couple of months ago and decided to share one. I get so wrapped up in my thoughts to put them out there, that I do not put the spotlight on my furry pal. She has been with us for almost nine years and what a gift she is. She is one of my best friends. My life is brighter because of her.
Max is my sisters dog, and Sandy has been spending a great deal of time with him. Max is a rescued dog from Katrina. It is a shame that during hurricanes, fires etc…a lot of animals get left behind. The two buddies are quite a pair. Size does not get in the way of their play dates!
Here is my niece Madison massaging my dog . Madison simply loves animals ! She constantly hugs and kisses Sandy. I can not describe the feeling that comes over me when watching my niece and dog interact. Sandy has claimed Madison and is very protective over her, and the other children.
Sandy has not been exposed to children or people like she is now, on a continual basis. I have had to make adjustments in my life which brings Sandy and I to a new way of living. It is different, however, I hope to fulfill both our lives.
She is a Husky, German Shepard mix. My fury friend is right at 100 pounds. Sandy has been in my life for 6 years so far, since she was a little pup. She is the second dog I have owned in my life. When I was growing up, we never had animals. She has been a blessing in my life! She challenges me to be better. She swims, she goes camping, she has traveled cross-country through out the US, she is a trooper. She is always by my side and loves me no matter what! Animals are special and unconditional that way, humans unfortunately put limits on how they receive you and the love they give you.
