Kayla (4mo. yorkie)is one little toot. She has helped Mandy so much deal with Max's death. Tina did very well but Mandy mourned so bad we were worried about her. After Max passed in May we got Kayla in Aug. She actually pushed herself on Mandy. Mandy would ignore or growl at her and she would still lay down beside her. Mandy would move, Kayla would move again right beside her. Now, she has won Mandy's heart. They play like you would not believe. Mandy is 12 and hasn't played like that for a long time. Tina has began to get in on the playing and now things have took a turn for the good and they all seem to love each other so much. She has helped us all. I have had to be so busy with her I don't dwell on crying and crying over Max as much although he is in my thoughts all the time. She has truely helped us all soooo much.
we got our german shepherd, karis, 2 months after nishka died. she was my "baby" and died suddenly on bonfire night age 10. it broke my heart. my collie/labrador cross was so miserable after she went i thought it would help him if we got another "friend". he did just the same. he growled at him all the time and everytime karis went up to him to be "nice" he would get up and walk away, leaving karis looking bemused! but now they are great friends. unless karis gets too giddy! lol. it takes a bit of time but they get through it. theyre not a replacement for your lost dog, their a new friend to share the fun with!
puppies are perfectly potty, but dogs are deliberatly daft. ( just to amuse you!)
I am going in for back surgery the 12th of Nov. and I have had horrible pain for so long, I was afraid we might have gotten Kayla too soon. But, it has worked out great. My husband is wonderful at helping and I know everyone thought we were crazy with my health sitution getting a baby to care for. But I would not take for what it has done for all of us and Mandy espically. Max will always remain in our hearts and they can never be replaced because each one is special in their own way. As I type this Kayla and Mandy are playing behind my chair. This little one has worked wonders on my ole' girl. She is playing like a puppy. lol!!!
Glad to hear that Kayla is fitting in so well. She is a real little doll. I will keep you in my prayers that you come through the surgery pain free. I have lower back pain sometimes and the pain can be almost unbearable. ((((HUGS))))
If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater, suggest that he wear a tail.
Dallas, yes, she is blessed with enegry. Her little legs are about an inch long and when she runs through the house she looks like a black streak. It is hilarious. She never crys or whines just barks orders. I think they are a breed all by themselves. I just hope we can housebreak her before she is a senior citizen.
my best friends grandparents ending up having to adopt her great grandma's yorkie. she is 8, and wasn't potty trained. they got a liitle patch of grass and planted it in a cat box. she started using that, then she would only go outside after that. she still uses the cat box if the grass outside is wet.
That sounds like a good idea. They are so little to go out. She doesn't even know what grass is. The time or two we have taken her out she runs back up on the patio. Of course thats where she tee tees.
