yes, I am one of those weirdos who spoils her dogs. One of them sleeps with me, the other is too old to be able to get on the bed. Which is good as the little Maltese ShihTsu takes up most of the bed, there’s barely enough room for me let alone my pit bull cross red heeler. They have coats for when we walk in the cold or rain. My shopping trolley has nearly as much dog food in it as there is people food. My kids have gone,mall I have is my dogs,nanda I absolutely love them to bits. Can’t imagine my life without them

  • I loved all the dogs and cats we had over the years. I was grief stricken every time we lost one. Some were more spoilt than others. Some, especially one of the cats was always very standoffish, knew when it was feed time and always stayed in our yard, except for feeds which were inside. I had one cat that how it never got hit by a vehicle I will never know. She was desexed as a young kitten but every while she would take herself down to a neighbour’s place. The problem was she had to go across a busy street to get there. If we spotted her and called her, she would give you a look as if to say I’ll come back when I am ready. She was always back at teatime. She either slept in the tankstand or inside. As she got older we were able to convince her to stay inside. At that time it was compulsory to make them stay inside at night. One cat we had used to take himself into our next door neighbours if we went out and he thought we weren’t coming home that night after she had minded him while we went away for a holiday. If she knew we would be home soon she would give him a drink of milk. He had his favourite dining table chair in there too. We weren’t allowed to move him. We had a pup which somehow knew when the primary school kids were due to go past. Funny part was she never bothered after the first week day of the school holidays. We had one dog that was sleep all the way to 2 particular places but as soon as we turned the corner just before we got there she always woke up. She knew my brother’s car sound yet. We had a budgie that always told us when they started to come down our drive before he could possibly have seen it. He didn’t do it with any other vehicle at all….people say they aren’t clever. At one stage we had a cat and a dog. In the cold weather they slept opposite sides of the bedroom…and they both snored….not in unison either. The last dog we had was our shadows. She was always right next to one of us. She was very protective of my 2 little nephews too. When she was only a few months old they were riding their bikes in their yard. She circled them until they were so close that they couldn’t move apart. She didn’t bark at them or anything. We were all at their place that day, sitting watching and having a good laugh about it. She was a desexed kelpie x collie and was simply following her
    instincts. If one of us wasn’t well, she would practically ask to be cuddled. Basically though she was cuddling and looking after us. She was getting old but could get on a low bed or chair next to us. Even if she was asleep she knew if we moved at all. She would check you were still there. If she thought you needed help she would start nudging you and licking you until you responded. If she didn’t think we were going to she would start barking and carry on. One of the nieighbours had a key in case of an emergency and would come and check if she kept barking.
