Jonny was my bestest friend. He was a Whippet and lived right across the street from me. He was only 4 months older than me.
We had been friends since I was wee little. He was a little older than I am. When we 1st met, he bit me and made me yelp. His man told me to bite him back so I did but I still had my puppy teeth so he really yiped! We were best friends from then on.
We liked to run around in the park and our yards, wrestle, and pull on each other's lips to say "Hey, let's play."
He liked to drink out of my canteen even when I tried to swallow his head. He was afraid of my stairs for years then he decided they weren't so scary so he'd come in and play with me. Then he realized he could open my front door so he'd let himself in.
He was the only dog I would share my food with. But I wouldn't share my spiral tendon. He found that out the hard way when I tried to turn him into a CPR dummy. He got up and decided the direct approach didn't work so maybe a side approach would. He would walk toward me sideways a few steps, stop, walk towards me, stop. That didn't work either.
Faith was one of my best friends. She was a German Shepherd/Chow Chow mix and was only a year or 2 older than me. When I 1st met her, she was really scared of other dogs but I worked really hard and we became best friends. She was one of the few dogs I let come into my house.
She was the only dog besides Jonny that got to mess with my toys, lick my bowl, eat bully sticks and tripe sticks with me (as long as we were about 12 feet apart), and sleep on my bed with me.
Maury was a Himalayan cat. He lived across the street and one house up.
Everyone said he thought he was part dog. He liked to go for car rides, chase squirrels, play with me and even looked into my pool when it had water in it!
I made sure no dogs or cats picked on him.
Poe lives across the street. He's part Siamese which means he's crazy!
We like to play together. He likes to come over and yell at me to see if I will let him in his house.
Sunny was a Plott Hound/Labrador mix and lived next door.
She liked to stick her head under the fence and say hi. She once got in my Jeep with me before a Montana trip and helped vacuum out dog hair.
