Now let me change to a more positive tone. Last night we let the "terrorists" (AKA. Spot and Jack) into the house because it was about to storm. We had just bathed them the day before, applied their flea treatment, and made them look great! So they ran around the house like crazy dogs until they finally settled in on their favorite chair. Spot has an affinity for girls and is constantly following Emily and myself around. He wanted to check out what Emily was doing on the lap top
When the storms hit the dogs went crazy!!! They have such storm anxiety. They played who could climb on Mount Jenn the highest.
Bigsby was not happy that there were other dogs on his human!
With the loss of Lady Mike has been in mourning for her. However, he has also been look at German Shepard pups. This isn't something we would rush out and do, but having a dog that could be trained to help us with Jude would be amazing. I have talked with a lady at IDEA Service dogs. They teach you how to train the puppy for the specific needs of your disabled relative. We still sleep with a baby monitor in our room to hear Jude when he wakes up at night or has a seizure. A service dog could alert us if Jude needs our help. They can also help with other aspects even though Jude is fully disabled. So it's just a consideration and Mike is enjoying looking at puppies online. So last night he comes in and says "awwwwwwwwwww, I want this one!!"
Me: So you want a disabled dog to care for the disabled baby?
Mike: we could get a service dog for the disabled service dog and Jude
Mike: Well he has an owner, but I would take him if I could
Me: mmmmmmmmm okay add to our list babe..........just add to it.
We were playing around, but it was ironic that he picked the one pup out that needs extra help. Both of us do have a soft spot in our hearts and would adopt every animal we could if we had a big farm, but we don't.
