Re: Cinder has moved on

So sorry to read of your loss. Cinder had something special with you that many shelter dogs still hope for: someone to take them home and love them.

It was a bit breezy here yesterday, perhaps it was Cinder's spirit's zoomies that kicked up the wind.

Re: I was adopted two years ago

My human gave me some very special treats today. I got a real bone and a brand new furry frisbee. I've trained my human to throw and retrieve the darn thing. I chase it and wait for her to get it to throw it again. Chloe O:)

Chloe is treated special every day. :D Chloe's Mom

I was adopted two years ago

by one of the saddest little chow mixes. The rescue which pulled her from a NYC animal shelter had these bubbly little descriptions next to the available dogs pictures.

Re: Can you/would you take your chows to work?

Chloe has gone to work with me on occasion. She's not much of a barker either at home or when we're out so noise isn't a problem. She seems to be able to only tolerate 1/2 day in
the office then she begins to get restless.

Chloe does the same thing. She'll pee early on in the walk then feels the need to squat at various points. Especially challenging are the spots higher up on trees where male dogs have marked but she'll butt up against the tree and semi squat. Then it's the foot swiping moves. I swear most people in ...
