Lucy is a snow white 8 year old schnoodle (cross breed of schnauzer and poodle) who cares for my son David’s family (David, Julie, Jackson and Maggie).   They are so well cared for that it was David’s inspiration to share the care, and some 6 years ago at his urging we were adopted by Lucy's sister schnoodle, who Joanne dubbed Charcoal due to her dark puppy coat.

In the early days there was turf war between the dogs as Charcoal sought to carve out her space in the family. However, flash forward to the present and they (mostly) get along when together.  See above photo.

Last weekend Lucy visited and it was the best yet!  So good that Joanne is talking about being adopted by another schnoodle puppy.

Thank you Lucy for bringing us Charcoal, our wonderful, affectionate, smart, sleep through the night, treat seeking ball of furry companionship!

    So happy that they are getting along. Not sure whether Charcoal would want to share you and Joanne on a more permanent basis.

    That gives me hope for our amazing rescue Sadie, who has been bombarded by her “nephew” Benny who came into our home a little over a year ago. Benny is my daughter’s dog and although very sweet his energy level is at times overwhelming for us all.

    This might be your best blog yey (the first being your realization of the importance of a dog in one's life)!

    I’ve always had dogs . But what I’ve never had was the deep introspect of the dog/ human interaction. Oh yeah they’re fun to hang out with and all that . And I did hang out with many . But that changed 4 years ago almost to the day . I suffered a TBI ( traumatic brain injury) while on a layover in Denver . My 2 Labrador Retrievers we’re home in California . As wild and into as much trouble as they could muster . I was in ICU for six weeks . Upon my return and as I crossed the threshold they were thrilled but knew I was in trouble . They took a few steps back . Cautiously approached . Ears way down . As I lay on my bed they both quietly jumped up and lay next to me . Heads on my chest . Breathing life back into my fragile psyche . Never letting me out of their sight . Four years now . Walking step by step beside me . Being there if I fell . Alerting all comers . As I got better they backed off accordingly . But things changed for them as they had for me . Their love is unconditional. Not as many swims or hikes . But they don’t care . All they want is me . And we talk all day and comfort each other at night . They’ve started back to their carefree roaming in the Woods and the creek. Trekking for hours to visit the kids lunch hour at the mountain school. When they arrive home it’s a bee line to my side . Checking on me . I’m better . And they are a most invaluable reason why . They saved my life and made it their sole responsibility . Dogs....... They know so much more than we do.
