My Cats Will Understand!

I will continue to tell you about my departed friend. She was a shiny black smooth-coated puppy with brown stocking so dark you could only differentiate between black and brown in very bright sunlight at specific angles. She got frequent baths to keep her sparkling. And we gave her raw eggs and fish oil in her food to assist her beautiful hair.

Her health was always good up until her last two years. If I could have afforded cloning I would have had her DNA perserved. I don't know about you folks but finding the right dog isn't very easy.
When Care Bear came along we were looking for a great protector. And we hit the jackpot with our heroine pup! To find those qualities again might be somewhat difficult.

Instinctively she knew what her job was and she did it to profection. The first day we brought her home my daughter took her for a walk and she let the neighbor boy know he was too close. No biting, Care Bear did not bite, she didn't have too. When she spoke everyone listened!

I'd take her hiking most every time I went. I could sit and even nap without fear of harm. Once when I was sitting on a log resting before a steep climb, a couple stopped to talk. They were busy talking and in a jester the man took a step towards me. Care Bears was up between him and me so fast you'd have to run it back in slow motion to have seen her movements. She roared out her diapproval. Don't come any closer was her message. He didn't!

For a few minutes I thought the man might have a heart attack. He was very much frightened.
I quickly explained to them that my puppy was extremely protective. He understood! For thirteen years she protected and loved her family to the best of her abilities.

I will post pictures of my girl on the next blog.

She sounds very sweet. our Selena and Malcolm were the best dogs and so good. Selena was a tough little girl in a little body. we still talk about how she'd look at the Bull Mastiff across the street like "what". and Malcolm was a genlte soul that everyone loved. the cats adored him and spooned him all the time and Selena was adored by my oldest cat. Salem was the only cat that Selena would let mess with her. Selena never bit or cats but chased the if the got too close and Salem would wait til she turned her back and run and slap Selena on the butt for getting after someone smaller then herself. Selena and Salem and Malcolm had a kindership together. we got the house were in now we were drawn by the fenced in yard for the dogs. they had been apt leash dogs for 10 years and never got over their love of the leash. we still had to walk with htem when they went out. they had 7 good years with a yard at least. they just died last year. we have to dogs now they were with Malcolm & Selna the last two years and always respected them. these two are good too. theyre JD & Gus and were strays when we found them.
