Misha Runs Into A Cat

Misha Runs Into A Cat

Share

Literally. My dog ran right into a cat. Misha has a habit of not noticing creatures in our back yard. Especially, when she has to go.  She is oblivious to everything around her except her mission. And, this dog needed to do her business. We don’t own a cat. They shouldn’t be in our yard. There was no reason for her to expect a cat to be in her poop spot. I took this photo the day before the incident. …

My Dog Knows About The Towel Rule

My Dog Knows About The Towel Rule

Share

  Jack Russell Terriers learn rules quickly.  Misha knows that when she gets up on the living room furniture she must be on a lap or towel.  She has learned the rule so well sometimes she moves over quickly, sits down, and touches it with one paw.  Sort of like the freeze tag rule. Here she is sitting in the privileged spot with her buddy, Summit, off to the side.  This is how it’s supposed to work. My dog seems…

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,…

Wordless Wednesday: My Dog Loves Her Toys Too Much

Wordless Wednesday: My Dog Loves Her Toys Too Much

Share

Misha has always been a dog who loves her toys.  She isn’t really a dog who plays fetch, though.  We have the three throw rule.  You throw the toy three times and the fourth time she walks away.  It’s your turn to fetch. As a pup she loved sleeping with her hedgehog.  Pretty much every dog loves their Kygen Hedgehog.  Does yours? I am not sure what this is.  What can I say?  She’s a Jack Russell.  I call this…

My Four Legged Nurse Helped Me Through My Migraine

My Four Legged Nurse Helped Me Through My Migraine

Share

I’ve believed for a long time that dogs are empathic.  Their ability to sense when we aren’t ourselves or aren’t feeling well is amazing.  My previous dog, Sierra, understood my arthritis pain.  She knew I had a problem with my feet.  She would hop up on the bed and gentle lay her head on my legs always careful not to touch on my feet. Tuesday afternoon, I got an ocular migraine.  Normally, they fade and leave me with tired eyes. …
