Thumbs up Just Saying Hello!

Hi! Today is my first day and this is my first post.

I'm glad to be here.

My name is Marsha and I live in Lakewood, Ohio.

My Georgie is gone and I haven't gotten another dog. Losing him hurt too much I'm not sure I can ever go through the pain of losing a dog again. I cried more for him then I have family members who have passed.

He was an all white Pitt bull who was deaf. I had to train him using hand motions. He was so funny somethings he would do behind my back like get into the garbage if I threw something in there that he liked. He would be rummaging around so I could hear the bag but since he couldn't hear I don't think he ever figured out how I caught him every time!

I still love dogs and consider getting another one all the time. I am considering a rescue dog this time around. Maybe just a mutt who needs someone. I have heard that they aren't always the best pick because of a tough past.

I'm in no rush when the time is right it will happen.

I love hearing other people's stories about their dogs. I love inspirational and funny stories and dogs can have a lot of those.

I'm excited to be here and am looking forward to sharing with everyone.

Welcome! That is a hilarious story about your dog and the garbage. I am sorry that you've lost your friend. Rescue dogs can be a really great find, and I hope that when you're ready we can point you to some good resources for finding a new pup. In the meantime, enjoy your stay!
