Yeas for one of the luckiest dogs. Todd now knows what love and caring is. Is he lucky or what?

Todd is one fortunate fella- and an expensive one at that. His markings are beautiful.

WEll, as you see for my picture I lived with a Pomeranian and I loved him dearly so I have a thing about Poms. I hate to see any dog suffer though. What t joy to see him being happy.

I am going down memory lane here, I had a Pomeranian, his name was Prinz, I got him for my daughter, she lost interest shortly after. He became my dog and such a beautiful loving mate. Not really a man's dog, but we really clicked. My mother always complained to me, why is always looking at you and never comes to her.
I had the best of times with him, he was almost 18 when we had to have him put down because he had a brain tumor. I insisted to have him go to sleep in my arms, like the first day we adopted him, he was in my arms feeling secure and loved.
I never wanted a dog again, it was too painful for me. If I ever had a dog again I thought, it would be too painful for a dog, he would outlive me and be sad like I was. I am 73+
My daughter, more responsible now, conned me into accepting her ROTTWEILER when he was the size of a rat. Being softhearted, to the dismay of my wife, (not really a dog person) I said yes to be his daycare center and plenty of sleepovers to follow.
Wow, I am not sorry, he lifted my life. But I never wanted to be his boss and made sure that my daughter will be the #1, even though the Rotti and I can have a good time. It was and still is working , even though he sometimes gets confused, like my daughter lets him sleep in her bed , but with me he has to sleep next to my bed.
I ended up in hospital for 4 days, a heart problem.and a bad fall. After that my wife and daughter picked me up and took me home, coming through the front door Onyx (the Rotti) flattened me and almost licked me to death, he missed me and felt something was wrong with me, but he was so gentle.
It goes to show, a pet like a dog , wow, they can love you more than a human and I dare to say, if you are really down at times like me, I still love our Prinz. But our Rotti took it to a new level with much more powerful moves. Prinz gently became your little friend, Onyz the Rotty bully forces a friendship.
Got bit a few times some time ago, but I do seem to understand the different tunes of a deep Rotti growl, happy or angry. Nevertheless, my daughter is #1 , the only way I could do this is that I walk behind him and let my daughter walk in front of him.
I heard a huge deep grumble of approval next to me, he is moving his bed next to mine, time to retire.
