About 5 years ago I had to give "my baby" to a friends, as my husband had passed and I was moving to another city to live with my son and his wife. I've always had animals - and loved them! Theres nothing like a Lap Dog to comfort you when you don't feel good! Our dog, Candy, we found at the pound. She's a cute, small, Benji-type dog. She had been abused, and we gave her lots of love. She wet a lot, the vet said from nerves, so we loved her a lot. She had special dietary needs, we bought the foods and medicines, and loved her a lot. In return, she did her best to protect us, a small dogs yap isn't as ferocious as a bigger dogi, but she gave what she had.
When I started getting sicker, she was there in return, to love me a lot - and it helped! I just don't understand how people can abuse animals - are they also abusive to people? Or do they just pick on animals as they're not covered by laws?
Where I live now, we can't have pets - except things like fish - so I have some, but its not the same.
I really miss candy - hope she's okay, I know she's loved, because of the home she went to.
