Do Dogs Sleepwalk?

Do Dogs Sleepwalk?

Share

Do you think that dogs sleepwalk? Seems to reason that if humans do it then animals do, too.  I caught my dog doing something that makes me think she was sleepwalking. Misha was exhausted several days with her dog cousin who was staying with us for a week. They don’t play together or interact beyond normal tail sniffing and having to face each other in passing. However, Summit is on seizure medication which works great at keeping her seizure free,…

The Holidays Have Come and Gone For the Little Dog

The Holidays Have Come and Gone For the Little Dog

Share

I can’t believe that I haven’t posted since November. Once the holidays get rolling it becomes so hectic. And, there ya go, it’s January. You may know that Jack Russell Terriers are incredibly curious. Misha is no exception. Bring a new bag into the house and my dog must inspect it. She had to see every decoration as it was brought out, but other than that she didn’t bug the decorations, the tree, or the presents. We all survived the…

The Rescue Dog Who Stole Our Hearts

The Rescue Dog Who Stole Our Hearts

The Stray Yorkie Who Stole Our Hearts It started with a phone call. Our elderly neighbor saw a stray dog wandering on our street and she needed help catching it. I went outside to see if I could help. Naturally, I am a sucker for this type of thing. What I saw was a scraggly, hairy Yorkie. He looked as if he might have been wandering around for days. His fur was matted and covering his eyes. He needed someone…

Wordless Wednesday: Tribute to My Dogs for National Dog Day

They were all so different and left their paw prints on our hearts. Our first dog was Bubbles.  She was a Cocker Spaniel Poodle Mix with curly fur.  We got her when I was 4 years old.  She was the sweetest dog and somehow…

Misha is Five Years Old

Wishing my tiny terror…I mean, terrier, a very Happy 5th Birthday.  She was born on May 20th, 2009.  I received her as a gift from my two nieces July of the same year.  My previous dog, Sierra, had just died.  Then, this very small bundle of joy came into my life. Misha went from this… to this… to this… With a little of this thrown in… Today, we sang Happy Birthday to her, which she joined in on.  It’s her…

Getting squeezed out of my own bed

Getting squeezed out of my own bed

Share

Having Summit stay over means sharing a bed with her.  She never sleeps on the bed at home, but she simply refuses to relax if I make her lay on the floor even with her own bed.  She tends to be restless because of her seizure medication, so if she’s calm, I’ll put up with it. In the last year, Misha graduated from her cage to the “outside world”.  Normally she sleeps in her tent bed, but sometimes she sleeps…
