“I Want My Puppy Back!”{Pt.1}

April 9, 2016



https://i2.wp.com/www.clker.com/cliparts/D/l/f/K/9/8/dotted-teapot-th.pngWe’ve had quite a few dogs and cats down through the years.  Their names are too numerous to list here.  I’ll just list a few, beginning with our first Doberman Pinscher.  Her kennel name was Kelly.  Of course, when I applied for her AKC papers I asked permission of the AKC to allow her to be called a name beginning with the title of “Princess”, but, then, it truly fit her to a “T”.  She, to us, was the ‘Doggue De Perfection’, a veritable ‘Princess of Princesses’, and she was totally amazing to us.  And, of course, we called her–Kelly–not Princess, much to my consternation.

https://i0.wp.com/www.clker.com/cliparts/X/t/V/R/Z/0/dog-portrait-md.pngShe lived an all-to-brief time, and died much too soon from an ailment she’d inherited from her parent’s lineage, according to the Veterinarian.  It broke our hearts that day, and it was one of the most painful experiences I think either of us ever had up to that point.  We didn’t even think of getting another Doberman until years later when we bought this house at the end of December, 1995.  Once we did, though, guess what name my husband wanted her to have?  Yep–Kelly!  But, this pup was Red and Rust, not Black and Rust, as the first Kelly had been, yet the name fit her, because the second Kelly had what I can only describe as a genuine “Irish Temper”!  She was a feisty one!  But, not towards us.  With us, she was such a sweet and loving dog.  We couldn’t have asked for a better dog.

      https://i0.wp.com/www.clker.com/cliparts/X/t/V/R/Z/0/dog-portrait-md.png By the time Moosie was full grown, he stood as tall as a Great Dane, and weighed as much as one, too.  He was so tall that, when I’d take him for a walk I could rest my arm on his back!  Once, while out walking, a lady stopped her car and told me he was beautiful, then asked me what he was ‘mixed with?’  I smiled and said he was a pure bred Doberman, and I had his papers at home to prove it!  She was astonished at that! 

     https://i2.wp.com/www.clker.com/cliparts/D/l/f/K/9/8/dotted-teapot-th.pngOne other time, in the early evening, I ‘hitched’ up all 4 of the big dogs we had at that time–Kelly, Moosie, Bear[Chow-Lab cross rescue] and Ruby[Bouvier des Flandres ‘semi’-rescue][two stories I’ll save for later]–and took them all out for a walk around the neighborhood.  As a group of rowdy young teens approached in our direction, one of the kids called out, “Hey, lady–you won’t have to worry about anyone bothering you while you’re walking them!”  I just kept my smile to myself as we walked by down the street. I guess there must have been nearly 500 lbs. of sheer muscle on the end of those leashes, which is something I’d hadn’t even thought about before.  Moosie, all by himself, weighed in at an astonishing 180 lbs.[!], yet it was all muscle, not flab!  Yet, he was one of the sweetest, most gentle dogs I’d ever had the pleasure to know and love.  But, they were all dolls, believe me, and they all got along wonderfully, believe that or not!

    https://i0.wp.com/www.clker.com/cliparts/X/t/V/R/Z/0/dog-portrait-md.png I need to leave it here for now, and plan to write more as soon as I can, God willing always.  After all, we owe our lives to Him alone, and He knows what’s best for us, far more than we do. So, I trust in His judgment and wisdom.
