Hello from Pa

I've been around dogs since I was born, mostly mutts from the shelter but a few pedigrees here and there. Out of all the dogs that I've grown up with my favorite had to be a large boxer named Rain. She was that special dog that some may call a "once in a lifetime dog." We found out she was deaf a week after we brought her home from the shelter and I took on the responsibilities of training her using sign language. At the time I was 13 years old and at a rough patch in my life, my mom had just passed so I think it was her who sent Rain my way. Every day Rain would sit down at the end of the drive way as I waited for the bus and would be there when I would come home. When I went to college she came along with me after I found a place to stay that allowed large dogs. No one ever complained of her making to much noise, she only barked on very rare occasions. She came with me to NYC and comforted me when I lost my husband when the south tower was hit. I still can not think of him without tears coming to my eyes but I know that he is in a better place. Rain was with me when I moved back home to Pa and passed away on September 20, 2010 at the ripe old age of 17. Two years later I adopted a box mixer named Gabriel, who is forever looking super skinny. That problem has been taken to numerous vets and they all tell me that it is because of how hyper he is, just up his food. Okay I'm feeding him more then I ever fed Rain and I put meat into his food to give him some more to get off of. Winter he looks better but that's probably because he's fluffier. He's a hyper dog but he's still younger, not even four yet. I used to own a horse named Jericho but he was 43 and passed away in his sleep back in 2009. Now I ride my sister's horse on occasion and Gabriel tags along for the trip.
