Best Dog in the World?


Ok, ok, I had to put the question mark in the blog post title, cuz we all think our dog is the best and the cutest in the world, right?
This is Bounce's favorite spot, on the back of our sofa, in the sun where he can look out the window and watch people walking past, some with dogs. Our street is a popular one for walking as it leads straight to the bay. Today Bounce brought his little squeaky toy to sit with him. I will try to get more photos of him with more light, but you get the idea. I think it is extra cute he brought his toy friend with him.
Bounce is a Chihuahua terrier mix, found on the streets in a nearby city and brought to the animal shelter. He weighed 7.8 pounds when brought in and was underweight. I adopted him in November last year and now he weighs 11 pounds which the vet says is ideal for him. I try not to overfeed so he stays at 11 pounds. He is so cute and food oriented so of course I give him treats like milk bone and Greenies.

It is hard not to overfeed our pets. Food is love. Bounce is a cutie and I am sure he has been a wonderful comfort for you these past months.

He looks very peaceful and contented there with you. I'd say it was a match made in heaven for you...perhaps in more ways than one. Thank you for sharing Bounce with us. He's a sweetie! Blessings to you my friend.

He looks like good company. That is the darn cutest dog name, too. I love that you named him that.

Such a sweetie! My pup loves crunchy things that aren't too good for him (acorns and virtually anything he finds outside) so I have to be pretty vigilant. But he also loves crushed ice, so that's his special treat...no calories either. :)

Oh Terra he is adorable sitting there in the sun with his toy and now looks like he rules the world.
What a wonderful deed you performed on the day you adopted him.
A true blessing

Bounce is a cutie. I'm so glad you found each other! There's nothing like the love of a good dog.

In the first photo he looks bigger than that! I've always been afraid of dogs (probably because I've not been around them much). However, one of my friends has been volunteering with Canine Partners for Life and has helped with training some of the dogs who will become home companion dogs. She's made sure that she brings whatever dog she is working with to my office so I'm getting more used to them. Even pet them and give them treats--a big step for me! Most of the ones she has worked with are Labrador Retrievers.

Bounce is adorable. He is the mix to two of my favorite breeds known for attitude, cuteness and protectiveness. You both got lucky.

Bounce is as cute as can be - and totally in love with his stuffie :)

Hey, I wanted to mention to you that Peter Robinson has a new book coming out in July. You had left me a comment about the DCI Banks series so I know you are a fellow fan ☺

Yes, he is a winner and I am so glad that you have bonded with each other. ....leads down to the bay? Now that does sound intriguing. More please?
