@MrsPanda99: Mine’s personal. This is my cat Samwise (aka Sam) and the vet calls him the miracle cat because by all accounts he should not be alive. When he was four years old he developed kidney disease. Even with the best care the vet said he would only live a year or two at most. I took care of him, giving him daily IVs and rushing him to the ICU several times. Finally the vet said that he had reached the end so I took him home to say goodbye. At the end of that week I took him back in to the vet and we decided to wait and see. That was four years ago. He’s almost completely recoovered and no longer takes an medication. He saved my live when it was at it’s lowest and I was able to return the favor. He’s my baby and I love him more and mroe everyday! He reminds me that miracles do happen!
These are our two rescue boys, Hamlet (the pug) and Boris. We’ve nicknamed them Nurse and Doctor Fuxzzbutt b/c when I’m sick or feeling lousy, they rarely leave my side – they will literally go outside for my husband and run back in to me. Hammy changed my brother in law – he was TERRIFIED of all dogs when he moved in. Hammy would literally sit in front of BiL and just quiver with excitement b/c he wanted to jump on him but knew better. By the time BiL moved out, Hammy would sit across his legs while he played video games.
@MrsPanda99: They are expensive but I grew up around show dogs so I have never known anything but expensive. Our dog will probably be in show as well. Here in the USA a Finnish Lapphund will cost about 1500 the other dog we will be purchasing is an Eurasier and is even more expensive than this breed. Eurasiers come around 2000 and are only breed every so often. Both dogs have small litters so demand for them is high while supply is short. Both actually have to get approval from their native countries before they can breed and every owner goes through extensive interviews. Dogs are my passion and who could deny these faces!:
This is my squidge! She is actually my mum’s, but she comes to stay with us a lot. She’s ridiculous – only child syndrome and oxygen deprivation at birth combined make for a rather dim combination, but she’s a total sweetie. Since the other dog died she has to sleep on the bed, and normally snuggles up under my arm. She also manages to take up approximately 95% of the bed!
