Any of you guys have dogs? My faithful companion of 13 years needs to go down and I can't do it. She is a little 3 lb Yorkie and never leaves my side. Her face is the spitting image of Gizmo from the movie Gremlins and that is her name. She went blind a year ago and now her hips are so bad she struggles to get around. Last few weeks she has gotten real bad and can't go outside anymore to go if you know what I mean. She used to jump between me and the wife and growl at the wife. She wants no one in the room except me and her. I am hers and hers alone. It was the funniest thing you ever saw this little furball growling at anything she viewed as a threat to me. She likes everyone but when I get home it's like they don't exist, used to sleep on the floor beside my side of the bed. She would lay in the drivway while I messed around in the garage and would come get me when she decided it was time to go in, then if I didn't come with her she would scratch the door until my wife let her back out. She knew the sound of my pickup and would go nuts when I got home, I had to say hi to her first every night before everyone else. You can't beat a good dog, total love. My son leaves for the Air Force Tuesday and I will probably lose Giz very soon as well. I'm not liking this getting old stuff one bit.
