I don’t think Katy had ever encountered a human being before I found her. She took to Pete in a day or so, but it took her 2 weeks to get comfortable with my touch. Now she likes to drape herself over me whenever she gets the chance. If I sit down to work on the computer, and she needs a nap from playing with Pete, she will trap my shoes under her body.
She is a pretty heavy sleeper, unless a squirrel runs across the tin roof of the shack!
But the lure of snoozing is not to be denied sometimes. Besides, chasing squirrels is such hard work!
Katy is a small dog, and Pete is hardly a fighter. I hear coyotes howling in the night when they kill something, and sometimes they are less than 100 yards from my shack. I always go outside with my dogs whenever I release them into the yard to do their doggy due diligence. Nothing is going to touch them if I have anything to say about it.
Pity Texas doesn’t offer a bounty for dead coyote. I could make a little money on the side.
So don’t worry about Pete or Katy. They both had hard lives, they both endured loss and tragedy and pain. But, as long as I don’t suffer a heart attack and avoid auto accidents, they should live happily ever after until the end of their days.
I love a happy ending, and James, may your life be long and happy too.
Katy and Pete are 2 of the luckiest puppies in the world
Thank you for the update, you can tell how she is doing….just by looking into her eyes
Great to hear that both dogs are doing so well!
I thought of this post when I saw the following in my RSS feeds recently:
From one dog lover to another, I thank you (for rescuing them but above all for memorializing it).
