    We got my daughter a Yorkie puppy when she was 15 years old.....Dixie..... When my daughter got married she wanted to take Dixie with her...... I told her no way.... I am losing my daughter but I am not losing my dog..... She lived a long life, she died two years ago at 13..... I said then never going to have another dog and get that attached to, so Sarah got a rescue kitten...... And then bought a cat...... Izzy and Smokey..... And darn I am getting attached to them too..... Jimmy

    @Jimmy Gibson I had Himalayan before the kids, they are so beautiful it's hard not to get attached!
    We also made the decision to not have anymore dogs after having to put down our 17yr old one, but my youngest wanted a pet and it was either a puppy or a rat....and we couldn't just have one puppy cause it would've been lonely all by himself, so now we have the two dogs.

    Had to play catch up on everyone's pets. Everyone of them are so special and loved. I only have my one little best pal Boo left and she never leaves my side.........well except when I go somewhere away from the homestead.

    She loves the snow almost as much as I do and every morning she has to make a visit to the pond for a drink of the lovely tasting pond water upload_2017-10-19_9-51-50.gif

    I always HATED Chihuahuas....And the owners as a matter of fact.
    Then someone gave me one. Chester. He was ferocious. But I sure grew to love him during our 14 years together.
    Suki is a strangely sweet natured one. Easy to love.
    I'm a very big man and initially I felt foolish walking and being with a tiny dog.
    But now I've changed my opinion.
    This is 2.5 pound Suki with a bone.

    When my last yorkie (I had 5) passed we were not going to get another. Dear hubby was retiring, we were going to be traveling............well lasted 4 months then dear hubby said I was too sad. So we got our new baby, this was her at 4 months.

    Boo and Smokey look alot alike ..... Smokey is a Rescue kitten...... He has way more personality than Izzy...... I think mixed up genes might be a plus as far as cats go.....lol Jimmy

    Nice looking pooch.
    I retire in the summer of 2018. Next year. I'll be 53. But as I'm aging in dog years. Suki may outlive me. At least I hope she can.
    At any rate, she will be my last dog.

    I always said last dog but or last animal and could never live with out that love .Plus pets make you feel better and then sad when they leave you for pet heaven .I retired just before my 50th birthday and moved here from NJ and miss friends but so much cheaper to live here .Since retiring I have lost my Harley and Hunter and King Arthur and my cat Sylvester Purrbody .It broke my heart each time but then decided to adopt more dogs .King was a rescue also as all my pets were .My mom raised chihuahuas so guessing it was normal to go back to a smaller dog as they are always puppies since they do not get big .

    I guess life would be very sad without that unconditional love. Once you've had that.
