Just Simple Things

Some Precious Memories From Long Ago

A couple of my sweeties from the past. The one on the left “Buffy” was a gift from my landlady.  She was a full blood registered chihuahua but because of her floppy ears and hip dysplasia she could not be sold. We had her hip surgery done when she was 6 months old. She did great never had any hip issues after that and she lived to be almost 13 years old.

“Muffin” was dumped not far from my home. She was very scared and it took about a week of feeding and giving her water where she was before I was finally able to bring her home. We tried several ways to get close enough to her to pick her up but none worked. One afternoon I went alone, sat down on the ground a few feet from her with a wiener and after several minutes she came to me. I gently picked her up and brought her home. We don’t know how old she was when she came to us but she lived for at least 10 years after I brought her home.

They were both special little dogs and I still miss them, I cherish fond memories of our time together.

    1. I miss your sweet Bumble too. There is nothing to compare on this earth to compare to the love and companionship they bring to us.

  3. Oh, Mags, such cute doggies and what stories behind them. We’re sure they loved you just as much you loved them. Soft Pawkisses for a wonderful day🐾😚😻

  4. Thank you for sharing this lovely photo and your beautiful memories of Buffy and Muffin, Maggie! Thank you for loving them so much. 🙂

  5. Thank you for sharing your sweet fur kids with us, Sis. You gave these two souls a loving home and it shows in their contented faces. Our fur babies give so much to us in return. I’d be lost without my furries. Huge hugs for you and nose kisses for the Chancy Man and Pooh ❤

    1. I would be lost without my furries too….they bring so much to my life and I love them so much. We thank you for the hugs and nose kisses. ❤

  6. You were so kind to befriend that dog giving it space to become comfortable with you before winning the dog over. Animals are such wonderful gifts to us as a human race and we need to look after them.

  7. Thank you for sharing your sweet memories. Buffy and Muffin were such cute fur babies and so lucky to have had a loving forever home.
    I remember my cats and dogs who are no longer with me (physically) and I miss them so much. xo

  8. Awww… lucky pups and they blessed your life as well!! Great story. They look sweet as can be!

  9. we love our pup memories, we have 3 to remember in the past 33 years together, and one still here. my son has a black Chihuahua that is 16 plus right now. he is not doing well, they are trying to prepare for it.

    1. Our memories are a wonderful things to have. Wow, 16 plus years that is a long life for a dog. I am sorry he is not doing well. Prayers for them.

  10. Oh Mags, they are beautiful dogs. You sure worked your magic on those dogs. I adopted a 9-month-old chihuahua who wasn’t toilet trained and had been abused by his owners. He pooped on the floor as he was left alone all day as both worked and when they got home they were angry at the poor little frighten dog every day. At night I put him in my sewing closet on a blanket and a very short leash. He never pooped in his bed and the first thing in the morning I took him outside in the same place until he did his job and then I would bring him inside and praise him and reward him. The next night I lengthened his leash just a little longer and I continued until he was trained He never pooped in the house after that and was a very cuddly and lovable pet. He was called Peppy. Dear Mags, thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog.
    Hugs, Julia

    1. Sweet Julia what a wonderful thing you did for that little sweetie. You did an excellent job training him. Love, care and patients work wonders don’t they?
