Re: Pets and Bricks


The snafu has been that we've looked for small dogs to keep our other dogs
company. Especially when it's for an elderly pet, having a big galoof knock
them to the ground is tough. (And the older I get, the less able I am to
lift big dogs to get 'em to a vet -no small consideration when they're
elderly and arthritic)

With Dreyfuss, we could have refused because we saw how big he was before we
brought him home, but on the other hand, we *couldn't* refuse once we saw
those eyes, and the rub marks on his elbows from the concrete pens - elbows
that had been used to the soft carpets, couches and beds of his former

Dreyfuss and Buddy enjoy each other's company - at least they tend to stay
in the same room together and follow one another around the yard, as did
Popper and Annie. I think they would have gotten along better had Popper and
Buddy not had to cringe and duck when the goofusses galloped past.
