There are so many reasons we love Missy. She was found in a driveway in Longview one morning. She was scared, tired and hungry. After two weeks of trying to find her owner and with no reservation and no fear our grandson brought her to our house. Grandma has a very soft heart for puppies. Well, that was sort of it. Jim was a little unsure about keeping her. She had not tags and had recently had puppies. Another big expense at the vet office!! I convinced Jim that I had talked to her and let her know the rules. James had called her Missy so that name just stuck. Since that day she has been the best little dog ever. She loves everyone and every child that comes can just love her to pieces and she never complains. I’ll bet she was once a great mother, she loves to be cuddled and most evenings I can’t get away from her. Jim, who was more hesitant has taken longer to fall in love with her. Now he can’t get out of the house without her tagging along. She will spend hours in the garden snooping around when he is down there. She must have figured out that Missy was her name because finally she started coming when we called her. Sometimes she gets a little panicky but slowly she is getting used to riding in the car and camping with us. I’m sure every time we put her in the car she thought we were dropping her off someplace. I am thankful she found a home where she is warm and cared for.
Now, I wrote that part of my blog a couple of weeks ago—let me tell you about our past week.
We dog sat Andy again; Andy is a wonderful dog and loves everyone and everything. All of a sudden sweet little Missy is jealous. She not only attacks Andy, she attacks Daisy. Andy just stayed away from her but poor Daisy can’t figure out what’s going on. Missy will even wake up at night and attack Daisy, now remember Daisy outweighs Missy by about 80 pounds. Jim and I are still wondering how we are going to stop this, finally today we have gotten through the whole day with Missy not being a grouch. We’ll see what happens tonight. Gotta love those dogs!!!
