Why We Needed To Get A Doggie Couch For Pedro

Hi There, VivBounty here with a tale of getting the now-85-lb-dog off our sofa. As you will read in the HubPage below, I was immediately at a disadvantage with this disciplinary task with my husband being predisposed to sharing all his furniture with his pets. Read on to see what I mean >>read more>>

So we got Pedro this mammoth dog bed also known as a doggie sofa and it was left up to me to convince him that his sofa was better than our sofa. I have photos of its arrival and me laying on it patting the cushion to convince him to join me. Then a sequential shot of he and I together on his doggie couch, which I choose not to share as I was having a bad hair day. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

Fortunately, as you can see he now loves it and even begrudgingly shares it with his kitten sister, Scampy.  I cannot tell you how relieved I am that we don’t have to wrestle with him for space on our settee anymore and he hasn’t gotten any smaller with age.

A little out of sequence, but next time I shall share with you the other cat sibling Pedro had in Spain. Stay tuned for the story of our cat, Chaussettes and lots of pictures.

Prosperous Blessings,

We Adopted This Large Dog Then Had To Put Him In a Travel Crate

Hello There, VivBounty here. While we are waiting for the rescue shelter in Spain to update their “Adopted Pets” page with our story, I would like to share with you how we got our dog Pedro used to his portable airline kennel.

In my previous post I wrote of us fostering two dogs in anticipation of adopting one of our own permanently. Tilly and Rafael prepared us for Pedro’s adoption, as I described in that blog entry, and as is often the case with pets, they helped us more than we helped them in our humble opinion.

Pedro came to us at 5 months old and by the time he was 4 years old, he weighed 75 lbs. When we adopted him, we did not anticipate leaving the continent nor the prospect of flying him anywhere. Well not only did we leave Spain, his life has been a travelling adventure, of course, as he has parents afflicted with wanderlust.

The Two Dogs We Fostered Remain in our Hearts

Hello There, VivBounty here with my HubPage about the two little dogs we fostered in   Spain before we adopted Pedro, our Husky-Podenco mix.

This hub is dedicated to all the wonderful people in the rescue shelters around the world who work so tirelessly to end cruelty to animals.

When I wrote this piece I did not realize that the rescue shelter where Pedro came from had upgraded their Web site to include progress reports on their former boarders. We have since sent them our story, albeit 5 years on but are anxiously looking forward to posting a link to it here.

All the information you need about this wonderful little organization which does big work is in the article in my link above and please feel free to leave me any comments.

Until next time, hug your pet.
