Recently I lost my dog love, a little Pomeranian named Goldie at 18 years old. Before that, it was Gracie, 17 years old when she passed away. I have a heart for older dogs and love to make them feel better with joint support (diatomaceous earth) and massages. They love it.
Goldie and Gracie were mascots at the place I worked and loved every minute of it. Some dogs are meant for PR work, greeting new people!
I'm a retired chiropractor with a few degrees in nutrition and am waiting a little while before getting a border collie. I love teaching dogs tricks and just being with them as well as car rides. I've made my own food recipe for dogs over the years as well, and treated them naturally, even in cases where vets wanted to do extreme things such as remove a front leg from my dog Ginger who was born with congenital disc disease. This would have caused her to have perpetual back pain for the rest of her life. She also recovered fully from spinal paralysis (another time).
I have a large back yard and a 100-year-old tree in the back yard with plenty of shade. There are also chickens and goats next door which used to fascinate my dogs as they watched them through the fence.. Because of my health background, I'm helpful with pets recovering from surgery. Due to the drought, the grass has been a big problem in the back yard but there are patches where it's okay.
I'm writing a cookbook on diatomaceous earth and made 7-1/2 dozen dog biscuits with it in them. I gave them to all the dogs in the neighborhood and they loved them.
There's a park down the street and love to take dogs for car rides. Hope to meet your dog soon!
Typical things the pets will do - go for car rides, walks, and wait for me to make their dinner from scratch in the kitchen.
Not many restrictions here but I noticed pit bulls like the one next door don't seem to like me too much. All other dogs I get along with.
