67. I have had cats in my family all my life...then I met Poochy

a dog abandoned at a job site, and the workers brought her to the office.

I fell in love at once and took her home.

We kept her in isolation at first and she had bad diarrhea...then we moved her into our home

We put a muzzle on her cause we had cats...she seemed to ignore them, so we removed the muzzle.

She never bothered the cats.

I loved her like I loved my father...the last person to whom I gave my unmitigated love, and when he died when I was 16 it was more than my body could take, and I collapsed when they told me he was dead.

Poochy was my constant companion...I left my husband, and took Poochy.

She LOVED riding in the car and barked ferociously to the point of a bloody mouth at big rigs...I always wondered what her history was?

When I finally knew she was so sick she would need to be put out of her misery, we drove all around all over for many hours

Our final destination was the vet and I stayed with her as she died...that was 20 years ago, and I still cry for her.
