The Hercules of Midget Dogs

The Hercules of Midget Dogs

I should have known from the start that Misha was no ordinary dog. Most dogs would enjoy being on top of the bed. Not Misha. She prefers to be under the bed.       I took this photo when she was about 10 months old. She weighed 7 lbs. That bed she is laying under was Sierra’s. It’s made for a large dog. I had trouble sometimes dragging in around. Misha…she liked picking the bed over her head and…

I have this little plastic bag dispenser so I can pick up Misha’s dog poop on our walk.  I rarely have to use it and mostly carry it in case someone confronts me about stray dog poop that they find on their lawn (yes, it has happened).  I can whip out my dispenser and show them I am plenty ready for action. Yesterday, on our walk, came the moment of truth.  First, Misha couldn’t decide where to go.  Then, it…

I came back into the room about 5 minutes later…

Thursday morning Misha woke me up at 7 with that unmistakable sound of a dog getting sick. It was just a little bile, nothing more. She was running around the house afterward. Then, this morning same thing at 5:45am and a little hick up at 7. Afterwards, she went back to bed. When she woke up it was as if nothing was wrong. She demanded her breakfast as if I hadn’t fed her in days. I always worry when my…

Oh no, the bowl is too shiny!

Today, I cleaned her water bowl. It is a metal bowl. When it’s sparkly clean it throws reflections. This disturbs Misha quite a lot. She doesn’t like the reflections at all. She approached the bowl slowly, then jumped back. You can never be too sure of those reflections. After a couple attempts, she eventually drank water. This is an improvement. When she was younger, she would be completely spooked by a clean water bowl. So much so that she wouldn’t…
