Her squeeky pig, Lolly-pups, Puperoni, the garden hose
Anyone touching her feet, being poked more than twice repeatedly, anything that wasn't human food
Her squeeky pig and her blue baby
She wasn't much of a walker. She went outside to do her business and refused to go far
She would dance for treats
We adopted Poochanne in Point Pleasant, NJ when she was 14 weeks old. We managed to grab her when someone else put her back for a minute, and that someone else wanted her as a junkyard guard dog... for some reason. To be fair, Poochanne picked us. I walked up to various dogs I liked, but when I got to her, she came out from the back of her cage and reached a paw out to me. I was ten years old at the time and she was my first dog. On the drive home, we sat together in the back seat of the car, on opposite sides, and just stared at each other. About a block from the house, she realized we were her family now and she leaped into the air, landed directly on me, and almost drown me in kisses.
Poochanne lived to be 15 years old. Even in her later years, everyone thought she was a German Shepard puppy. She was a fierce guard dog when need be (I saw her, at six months old, put a full grown German Shepard on his back to save me when it attacked me) and always loyal to her family. She truly was one of a kind, and I always called her my little sister. In later years, Poochanne developed a little bit of everything a dog can get, from fatty tumors that made her bow legged, to ulcers in her eyes, Kushings (sp?) disease, arthritis, etc. She was almost completely blind toward the end, and we suspect she may have also gone deaf.
Poochanne had to be put to sleep in 2004 as a result of her illnesses. I miss her dearly, and still cry when I think about her. She was the best friend a girl could have, and I thank God for sending her to grow up with me. We took turns protecting each other, and she was always willing to play until we both fell asleep where we stood. It is impossible to forget such a wonderful dog.
