I’ve put the medications away. I’ve washed the bowl and put it away. I’ve washed the bedding. I’ve washed the blood off the floors. At times the mass in his mouth bled, and the droplets looked like paint spatter. In the kitchen, there was a corner where the blood spatter was more concentrated, indicating he had stood there with his head pressed against the cabinets sometime during the night.

I can feel the gentle steady pressure of his head against my leg. He liked to stand pressed against me. I can hear the clicking of his paws as he paces, or walks in circles, or just randomly keeps moving through the house like a school of fish in the shape of a little frail dog. Bullet had brain damage, it was thought to possibly be a brain tumor. I can see his face, he was a beautiful dog with a Shepherd’s saddle, a long bushy tail, his colors such a beautiful array of reds and black. He had solid black eyes and if I stroked the top of his head down to his neck, firmly, his eyes slowly closed and if he were lying next to me, he would drop off to sleep.

Goodbye, Bullet. 12 years on a chain; six months in a shelter, nine weeks in hospice. You never had to be house-trained. All the other dogs loved you and allowed you to bump into them, walk on them while they were sleeping, stick your snout in their food or their water. They did not elbow their way in when mommy was giving you attention. They slept with you. The mass that developed in your mouth required special feeding, and frequent feedings. The other dogs did not riot when they saw you eating and they weren’t. Goodbye, sweet special Bullet. I don’t know what the future holds for you but I know that whatever brain damage you had, it allowed you to find happiness in just about anything. The happiness I saw you having day in and day out brought me the greatest joy.

Rescues and shelters go through a lot of linens. Towels, sheets, blankets, quilts, are always needed, and we thank Stacey Counts, standing with our 95 pound boarder, Little Girl, for three huge bags of linens donated to us today.

Little Big Dog Rescue

True story. Child sits on and rides a dog and gets bitten. This happens way too often. If a kid jumped up and down on me I would not appreciate that. I can use words and ask nicely to please stop, I might choose to move or if it is my kid...I might say KNOCK It off! Well, a dog is a bit different.
They can NOT speak up with words. They DO give subtle signals to communicate but a young child riding a dog will not recognize this or know what it means. The child will look at their parent for approval or disapproval. When a dog runs out of sublte ways of indicating discomfort and stress (through body language other dogs understand that indicate MOVE) then they too may say KNOCK IT OFF with a final effort of communication. Growl, bite etc.
Please never put your dog or child in this situation. It is not cute and it is not fair. It is our responsibilities as parents and dog owners to set up our dogs for success in homes with young children. It is also our job to teach our children safe and respectful interaction with dogs in and outside the home. Please NEVER allow this! #familypaws #familypawsparenteducator #dogsandkids #familypawsofficial #dogaware
