I heart my doggies

My little pack may be ful of misfits people didn't want for one reason or another but they are very much wanted and loved at my house...even though some of them have behavioral problems I can't fix.

Tucker is always good for a laugh with his goofy ways and clumsy antics. And he loves me more than anything/anyone in the world (including Adam) that always lifts my spirits.

Jasmine is a sweetheart. She is the most like me of all my dogs. She loves to be outside and not the center of attention.

Jack is the sun worshipper. He loves laying in the sunlight...well, laying anywhere really. His other love is to sniff EVERYTHING on our daily walks.

Bear is our grumpy old man. He's only 10 but he's starting to show his age. He doesn't want to be outside during the day while we're at work anymore. He'd much rather be warm and in bed. (He's getting in a nice, big yawn here.)

Some days I wonder why in the world I have 4 dogs. They are a handful. I don't feel like I am good enough for them. They need someone who can give them the training they need to oversome their fears and aggressions. They need someone who will walk them 7 days a week, no matter what. They need someone who will sit down and play with them more. But then again, most of all, they need someone who loves tham and is committed to them...and that is definitely me. Sometimes having 4 dogs can be stressful but I wouln't trade in any of them.

I think my 5-year old beagle is like your Bear! (and the sun worshiping of Jack!) You have all personalities in your dogs! My oldest daughter has 2 dogs from a shelter. They are cute, even though they do have some behavioral problems. (one more then the other). love,andrea

I missed so many posts! You have been so busy, as usual.

Sounds like you have the same insecurities that I do with being a mom of children. :)

Good luck with getting more sleep. I hope you can. I need it, but can't since I'm in school and have to do homework or study until at least midnight all the time. My poor dark circles will never go away.

Andrea, the only personality trait I don't have in my dogs wish I did is a dog friendly one. Someday... You just have to love them, faults and all...the same way they love me.

Valerie, I don't think you've missed much on the blog. I haven't posted much since I got back from vacation. I hope your school schedule isn't too tough this semester.
