telling his mom to go to bed ( he gets a massage when i go to bed) , Riding in the car and seeing new things ( he's nosey)
if one of the cats tries to lay next to me
squeeky toys and rawhide bones
anything mom is eating
any place there are people and dogs
his comical expressions
MY friend found Artie laying at the side of the interstate in Nov 2 years ago. She had driven by for him 3 days and thought he was dead. On the 3rd day she saw his head move and slammed on the brakes jumped out of the car and ran to him. His front leg was mangled, his jaw was broken, he was emaciated and paralyzed. She got him into the car and got him to a vet. Once at the vet she asked him evaluate him and she would try to find his owner. Well she contacted everyone and no one claimed him
She contacted the vet again to see how the evaulation was going and they said they had turned him over to the Human Society. She called them and they said they were going to put him down on Monday. She saved him not once but twice. She went right back to the Humane Society got him and back to the vets they went. Well long story short 3 grand later front leg gone and jaw wired shut this wonderful girl did all his rehab.
Then she started looking for a home for him. Her sister in law contacted me with picture and story. Of course i said NO no more dogs. I had a shepard for many years and when i had to put him down at 17 it broke my heart. So after 3 months of emails and pictures i finally agreed to go and see him knowing I would be doomed when I laid eyes on him. Well I went and saw him and of course promptly brought him home.
Well he wasn't sure and neither was i but now I adore him he is my treasure and he loves his mom He is a very good boy runs like the wind and takes the steps two at a time. This spring he is going to go to training classes to become a certified theraphy dog If it weren't for a very caring young woman this precious dog would not be here to give his love to everyone.
I would just like people to know that just because a dog is not perfect or leg challenged as in Arties case there is no need to put an animal down. This beautiful boy doesn't even realize he is missing a leg. He can do everything. He is a gun dog that is afraid of loud noises. Ok so he won't hunt but does go on point in his own way and loves to find things in the yard and on walks.
I am a CNA and work in a nursing home. Theraphy dogs are greatly needed especially in the dementia and hospice units. This loving boy hopefully will be theraphy certified by the spring and can go and offer comfort to others. His big heart and handicap will only make him more endearing. BEsides if he had 2 front legs he wouldn't hug me with the one he has. My life has been blessed !!!

WELL MOM THOUGHT SHE WAS WONDERFUL making my first animated GIF. Lordy Lordy we watched it intently while she was putting it on my page totally mesmerized. Oh yeah that was the way it was. Before too long we were running around the house like crazy racing back and forth and Mom was getting dizzy. We could have caused someone to have a seizure it was flashing so fast!!!!!!! BOL BOL BOL.
Well she had to do something about this crazy pic before we all hurt ourselves so she contacted her friend Flicka. Mom sent the the pic and she sent it back in a flash all fixed. She just slowed down the frames so you can actually see me - not just a subconcious memory. Almost like that advertising that they did in the theatres long ago. - oh subliminal couldn't remember what it was called. Any way thanks again Flicka. Keep that flower away from Miss Ruby mom she wants to eat it! A.

Mom is hard at work making the girls pages look pretty ( athough she should be working on mine instead of theirs). For goodness sake she still has the shamrock thing going on although I did get some new music!
Anyway enough sniveling - She just put up 4 of my kitty siblings on Catster. Her digital camera won't load into this computer for some odd reason so until she gets that worked out everybody is on webcam!!! and she thought she got it so she could talk to her niece Ha HA silly her. It can do video and we keep telling to do one of us but she doesn't listen sound familar? Like momma like doggie BOL.
So if you get a chance stop by and check out the girls. They all have guestbooks so let them know you were there.
Myah thinks I am her dog so mom doesn't tell her the truth and lets her think what she wants . Miss Ruby sits her butt on my boney when I am trying to relax and enjoy it. When Bebe was a kitten she thought she could boss me around but she finally gave up. I even got accused of eating her when she was a kitten but then mom found her in the closet (AND NEVER APOLOGIZED!!!!) As for Mittens I always seem to step on her toes ( maybe cause she has too many of them.) She even complains if I lay to close to her on mom's bed. Hrummph
Go check them out they are kinda cute - well for kitties. Later A

Something doesn't look just right about my page? Don't worry this is a picture of Duncan. He is now at the Bridge due to a very unfortunate accident. But this is a tribute to him and his brave little soul. This is a fabulous way of honoring this little guy and helping him find his way to the bridge. Great job who ever came up with the idea. Mom will keep this up for a week in his honor.
Our hearts go out to his family and know that you and your angel are in our prayers. Artie and his family
