King and I (3) (Copyright 2012 Sheri Palmer)

My Grandmother pulled me into herself facing me away from the horrible bloody sight reassuring me the Veterinary would "fix him up good as new." With that hope in my heart I stopped crying. And she let me watch out the window while Grandfather, my Uncle and the Veterinary (who's name I have... Sign in to see full entry.

Spark Plug-6 (the end)(Copyright 2012 Sheri Palmer)

We arose with a sharp high-pitched squeak, imitating a dogs bark but not quite:) Yes Spark Plug was wondering where his people were and since "Doggies Rule" we all got up, before the break of dawn, at his command:) He liked this you believe. Grandmother took him out on a leash or a good attempt to... Sign in to see full entry.

King and I (2) (Copyright 2012 Sheri Palmer)

It was a normal cold rainy Spring day in upstate New York. Grandmother let King out to do what doggies do outside. Being a large farm he might be awhile as he will have a lot of territory to mark! So she shut the door and knew when he was ready he'd let her know by a "Doggy Shout". That's one big... Sign in to see full entry.

King and I (1) (Copyright 2011 Sheri Palmer)

For all who have been following "Spark Plug" you've read about the TRAGIC death of my white collie "King". Tragic and how we perceive it to be is in the eye of the beholder and I behold it as tragic. King was my first best friend. He was my first pet dog. I had lots of cats. Being on a big secluded... Sign in to see full entry.

Spark Plug-5 (Copyright 2012 sheri palmer)

It was time to go do chores so I knew Grandfather would tell us before we went to bed Spark Plugs fate. We all would be in the kitchen eating popcorn and apples. My Grandfather always peeled and sliced a piece at a time off handing me one eating his and mindful of when I needed another piece and... Sign in to see full entry.

Spark Plug-4 (copyright 2012 sheri palmer)

The man bringing the puppy was a local farmer and breeder. Not a known breeder because of the controversial opinions of Rottweilers. Through the town's gossiping (we had a five party phone line, which gave five other parties or families access to pick up the receiver of there phone and listen in on... Sign in to see full entry.

Spark Plug-3 (Copyright 2012 sheri palmer)

The baby Spark Plug seemed to know this was his nice warm bed and rearranged a few things like pushing his covers closer to the stove then bunching them into a pile, spinning his tail the whole time. Then he took a bath, licking everything, blanket included, gave a yawn and sigh laying his chin on... Sign in to see full entry.

Spark Plug-2 (Copyright 2012 sheri palmer)

Keeping in mind this was 1960 when Rottweilers in the state of New York were thought to be for illegal dog fights with no reputation other than evil, vicious, and deadly. It was rare to own one and by owning one all owners set themselves up to receive malicious rumors almost to the point of being... Sign in to see full entry.

Spark Plug-1 (Copyright 2012 sheri palmer)

"Spark plug" as we affectionately called him was a Rottweiler. Since our collie died a tragic death, a breeder brought this round fuzzy little dog to the farm explaining to Grandfather that this would be the most perfect dog to protect his assets and family, along with being good at herding animals,...

Rocky, Princess, Bear, Queen etc. (Copyright 2011 sheri palmer)

It's obvious the ranking a man puts on his pet dog giving them proud tough names to male dogs and royal names to female dogs explains who is more esteemed in his life. I've never seen a man who didn't put his dog first even before his wife choosing to sleep beside his furry pal or share a morsel of...
