a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Dog Tails and A Tale

Meet Ki-Anne, my hot pepper, with her son, Junior...the name that stuck.  Ki was a throw away dog that someone brought to me at work.  Someone had been dropped them off at her house. I could not say no. Ki-Anne has a natural bob tail.  

When I messed up and did not get her spayed in a timely matter, puppies were born.  Some with tails and some with none and a few varying lengths in between. All were given wonderful homes.  One is a therapy dog and two went with their owners to college.  I get updates now and then.  Junior was the one the guys chose to keep.  They are both valuable members to the farm team.
Ki still babies JR.  "Oh, you poor boy, you want a stick?"
"I will pick it up for you
and put it in your mouth.
 Wait, I will get it closer."
JR says, "I don't need a stick, Mom, but you can scratch my itch.
Oh, yes, that's the spot.  Thanks, Mom!"

Sometimes, I think the correct number of dogs is determined only by how many that you afford to care for.

They look like great companions. We don't get many throw away dogs here...mostly cats. I call my daughter the cat whisperer because they all end up at her house.
