I Lost My Dog in the Laundry

I Lost My Dog in the Laundry

I always wash my dog’s blankets when I give her a bath.  Clean dog, clean bedding. I pulled Misha’s blankets from the dryer and threw them on the couch.  I went to throw away a string.  When I came back about 15 seconds later…no Misha! She ignored my pleas to get out.  Even as I started to remove blankets she pretended not to hear. Try as she may, she couldn’t resist the sounds of the mail carrier on our porch. …

I’ve mentioned before how curious my Jack Russell is. She was already mad at me because I washed her blankets.  The minute I them on the couch she just couldn’t resist.  She had to jump up to check them out. It wasn’t long before had her head buried underneath. I left the room to put one away.  When I came back someone had made herself quite comfortable on top of the pile. Even though I took away another blanket, this…

A funny thing happened on the way to Misha’s 8th birthday. Something I really didn’t even notice. She began to lose her fear of people. My Dog is Afraid of Strangers So, this is how Misha usually greets people… She’s terrified of strangers. When meeting someone new, she would not sniff their shoes like a normal dog. She would bark incessantly. It often took several months of regular meetings before she would let a new person pet her. Case in…

Wordless Wednesday: Early Morning Dog Walk

After many weeks of rain, Mother Nature played a trick on us with unseasonably warm weather.  If you’ve spend any amount of time with a Jack Russell Terrier, you know that daily walks are important. Misha and I needed to get out and walk early before the sun started beating down.  At 9 am, it was already difficult to find shade. The morning sunshine was inviting and we got time to smell the roses.  Well, one of us stuck her…

Happy 7th Birthday to My Dog, Misha

Happy 7th Birthday to My Dog, Misha

My dog, Misha, turned 7 this week! Did you know that she loves to sing “Happy Birthday to You”?  It is her favorite song.  I’ve never had a singing dog before. Whenever it is someone’s birthday, they get Misha singing on their voice mail. Here she is belting out her favorite tune… It’s hard to believe she’s been a part of my life for seven years. We’ve made it through some tough times. There’s been fretting over emergency vet visits…

First Blog Paws Blog Hop in awhile. We’ve had to deal with some family health issues which was distracting. But Misha is back for another round! Poor Misha.  She doesn’t like winter very much…even out here on the West Coast where winter means 50 degrees. But, it has been a wet winter.  For a dog who enjoys the sunshine all this wet weather is not appealing at all. My dog hides in under her blanket in her dog bed in…
