Pearl is absolutely precious and beautiful. What a darling.I have been very blessed to have had nine dogs and a horse in my lifetime. One however was the special one and the absolute love of my life. Pearl passed away two years ago today and I miss her deeply. Not a day goes by that I do not shed a tear for her. I am looking forward to the day that we are reunited again in Heaven.

Luca, is Ranger a new puppy of yours? He's adorable.As you can see, Enzo was not pleased with Ranger stealing his toy.
But since he is a Malinois, he was not pleased with Enzo trying get his toy back. They are called “Maligators” for a reason.
His ears will fully stand up when he is a bit older btw

Omg, that’s horrible! I’m so sorry that happened. I’m glad Potato Cat and Rue Dog are okay.View attachment 82690
This is Rue Dog. Rue Dog went off on a barking frenzy this afternoon and scared a middle schooler into hysterics...for a very good reason.
Rue Dog and I had just gotten home from a cardiology appointment and because the weather is nice we've had the windows open. Our big pictures are locked when I'm not home, but I opened them when I got home for air and because Potato Cat loves to sit in the window. The air here today is cool and still, voices carry. (This factor will matter in a moment...).
Two girls 11 - 13 were walking up our street and I heard one tell the other, her mother said she could have a cat if she found one. Apparently the family had been turned away by the local humane society, (yes, it was eavesdropping, but then again they were very loud.) The girls walked off and I figured that was the end of it.
Cardiology took a lot out of me today and I dozed off for a bit. Next thing I know Rue Dog goes flying off the end of my bed in an absolute frenzy and Potato Cat is spitting and hissing in rage. I race out to the living room and see the taller of the two girls tripping backward out of our lilac bush in front of the open window. She ran up the street screaming bloody murder.
Rue Dog's charge took her completely by surprise. He's fast, he's uber loud, and he is a dog who means business.
The screen on the living room window had been forced open a couple of inches, right in front of Potato Cat's favourite perch. It wasn't wide enough for Rue Dog to get his nose through, and it didn't take a great leap of logic to figure out what had been going on...Rue Dog leapt to the defense of his pack.
I called the non-emergency number and reported the trespassing and petty vandalism. I also told them the conversation I had overheard. (Not the first time this family has been reported, usually it's noise complaints, (the aforementioned screamer). I just wanted something on record, just in case.
Turned out to be a smart move. The would be trespasser informed her mother she was attacked by a vicious dog at large in the neighborhood. I had photos of my screen, the window, Potato Cat, and Rue taken seconds after he scared the crap out of the kid.
Animal control knocked on my door about ten minutes after city patrol left. They were shown the police report I had filed and were informed my service dog was acting in defense of his home, on private property, thwarting a trespassing attempt into said residence.
City partol came back while animal control was there stating they had a report of a stolen cat. Namely, the would be burglar tried to claim that I stole Potato Cat from her...(this is when things enter a whole new level of stupid.) They now had a name and address of the culprit.
Everyone who knows me, knows Potato Cat and his story. He has Facebook and IG accounts I post to multiple times a week. Three years of vet records, a registered microchip, license records, his ID tag, and the phone number of the friend who gave me Potato Cat.
Tell me I took this cat...these patrol officers were having trouble keeping a straight face at this point. Couldn't get the dog impounded, so why not get the cat taken away...yeah.
Patrol and animal control went back to the kid and her mother with the evidence of what actually happened and clear proof of ownership of the contested cat...whole story came out.
Kid figured if she took Potato Cat her mother would let her keep him since he was 'abandoned'. She hadn't figured on Potato Cat and Rue Dog putting up such a struggle. Potato Cat, it turns out swiped at her when she forced the screen open. He drew blood, but is not in any trouble because of the trespassing and unlawful entry. Potato Cat was defending himself and his home.
Kid got the scratches treated and her mother got fined for filing a false police report.
I know kids can do stupid things, but I hope this lesson stays with this kid. I can't imagine doing something not only illegal, but also morally bankrupt. Maybe this incident will serve as a wake up call.
