Thanks all! Sassy was 3mo. old when my son brought her to us shortly after I retired! She was my sole company during the day for years while my wife still worked! What a wonderful friend she was!

We got a new dog the other day from Paws and Claws! They thought she was about 2 years old; she is spayed and up to date on he vaccinations! She is a mixed breed and about half the size that Sassy was! :D She is a little shy but has very good manners! :D

Aww, she still looks guarded in her new environment. Cheer up, Magic! You got one of the good humans. :D
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

She is very spooky at times, She walks very well when she is on the lead; but gets very frightened at sudden distractions! She will get a lot of love from us and is allready starting to settle down! She loves to set on my lap and also likes to explore her new home! :D

As pets, cats rock... and sometimes roll.

The local news reiterated the importance of cleaning your dogs paws after a walk in the snow.

This not only gets the harmful salt off but some people use antifreeze to remove snow & ice;
dogs like the taste of antifreeze and will lick it off... possibly killing them.

Magic has taken a strong liking to my wife; follows her everywhere, so Marcia gets to take her outside for her potty breaks! :mrgreen: Magic loves to romp in the fenced in garden area off of the patio, and when Marcia puts her leash on; she heads straight for the gate! :D

Glad to hear how Magic is doing, Orin. It's very good that she likes your wife, but surely she likes you, too?
