Where we live there is a wonderful nice lady. She just loves her dog. He means everything to her. He keeps her safe and secure. His name was Dilbert.
The poor thing had been so badly abused. Kids shooting him with bebe guns, putting him in the dryer and letting it run, etc. She rescued him and they were a pair. She would hold him like a baby.
Unfortunately Dilbert had an accident and had to be put to sleep. It tore her up. Her son got her a new baby Yorkie.
Karubi was just fascinated with this baby. He kept smelling all over him. He would go nuts when he saw him. He just could not figure out this little guy that could be held in one hand.
Today I found out another reason Karubi was so interested. The little one was sick. He was loosing energy. She holds him all the time and seldom lets him down even to walk. She was loving him until he got sick. Literally!!!
Her son took him back for now. They will have to find something for her. She goes into a breakdown without a dog.
You can love a dog like a baby but let it grown up. Trying to keep him as a baby could cause harm to him.
Karubi the rescuer again. He knows his job and he loves it
