Apache cont

In spite of all this, dont get the idea that Apache would invite the robbers in and show then where the valuables are kept. He plants himself against any intruder, hair standing up, until someone lets him know that it's ok. Even then he backs away looking skeptical.. I rely on his judgement, if...

Apache cont.

That was nine years ago. I can't imagine life without him. The husband and most of the kids have moved on. Apache is still sitting at my left heel. He bonded some with my old lab Ben and was content being with him if I wasn't home. Apache did everything Ben did, like a shadow However if I walked out... Sign in to see full entry.

Apache cont.

Once again I heard "He really wants to go home with you." "Honestly I can't." By now my voice was coming dangerously close to a whine. " There are so many homeless dogs out there. I just can't justify spending three hundred dollars for a dog." "O'Kay, but you realize he is your dog?" I just looked... Sign in to see full entry.

Apache cont.

"He wants to go home with you." Oh, how many times have I heard that. This was a purebred litter and the asking price although not unreasonable was more then I could pay. "No" I said. "I do not need another dog." This was indeed the case. I was married at the time and my house overflowed with four... Sign in to see full entry.

I have never been extremely compatible with people. I don't hate them, but prefer to keep my contact to a minumum. Animals on the other hand, I never get tired of. O'kay now and then I have a day when every other one tries to kill me and the rest poop and pee on me that I have been known to say " I... Sign in to see full entry.

Gentle Ben cont.

A couple of weeks later I let Ben out into the yard. He went with his usual zeal carrying his favorite toy, then collasped. My heart broke that night, I was losing my best friend but just as he had stood by me all those years, I now had to be there for him. It was as if heaven mourned with me,...

Gentle Ben cont.

I was blessed with thirteen years of experiences with Ben, some positive some not. He jumped every fence that ever tried to keep him in often taking the dogs of friends and family with him and returning without them causing us to search for them for hours. But he made up for this by laying quietly... Sign in to see full entry.

Gentle Ben

This scared me what could have happened. I told her that I didn't understand. I had just got a job but still needed time to get a place. "I will give you two dog crates." she said. "Put them in the back of your truck and park in the shade. These dogs would rather be in a cage with you then in the... Sign in to see full entry.

Gentle Ben

Let me tell you about a hero of mine, Ben. He got his speed, hyperactivity and color from his mother, a black Labrador retriever. His kind and gentle ways came from his father, a Golden retriever. He came into our lives at about seven weeks of age, my daughter was just learning to walk well. I... Sign in to see full entry.

My first animal friends cont.

The ravens of Alaska were intimidating to say the least. The first physical harm I ever received from an animal was from one of these very large and frightening birds. I was only about four, on my way to the outhouse ( a place that turned out to be the center of many animal encounters ) and heard my... Sign in to see full entry.
