When my daughter got married, she left her dog with me, because a big dog does not do well in a small apartment. I told her at the time, that I was not letting the dog go. She just moved into a house with a yard with her new husband, but wanted to know if I really was keeping the dog. I had visions of her stealing here in the dead of night and making off the the dog. Fortunately, though, their new house has a train go by, which would have terrorized Akira, who is sort of a wimp. So now, I officially own a dog! Welcome, Akira! (of course, she's been sleeping with me for almost a year now)

    I know exactly how you feel. My son did the same thing and after four years asked for his dog back and you know what I said. No, she is my girl now and she stays here. And after fourteen years I finally said goodbye and let her go to the rainbow bridge.

    That could almost be my dog, Akira, and one of my cats, Willow, except that Willow has long fur. Akira is a big lovey dog. She gets jealous of the cats, but she actually loves them and tolerates them as her pack leaders. They even wash her, which is a way cats scent mark something as their own, so they claim the dog, too.

    She felt sorry for herself, as I dressed her as a proposed flower girl for my daughter's wedding, but she was well-rewarded with her favorite bones after. All was forgiven. ;)

    Congrats to you and your wonderful companion!
    (and Congrats to your daughter/husband for adopting one that definitely had a need for a loving home as well!)

    I've told her all along that I wanted to keep Akira, but she loves her, too. I'm happy that she's going to give another dog the home it needs and deserves.

    Good. Everyone should have a dog. I find it interesting and strange that an animal evolved that give unconditional love to another species. I think it is a gift from God.

    I've always had cats--it's in the unwritten librarian's code, but I love dogs, too. I am so happy to keep Akira. I love the big bonehead. She's sweet tempered, but though I've never had it put to the test, I believe her sweet nature would stop, if her people were threatened.

    She's been enriching it for awhile now. It's just 'official' that she's my dog. She even gets along well with her kitty siblings. She's a great big sweetheart.

    She's a great dog. I'm so happy to officially have her. Plus, since she and hubby are adopting another dog--an adult which are harder to place, too, another dog will have a home. :)

    I'm so glad my daughter was reasonable about it. She's a great dog, and my daughter knows I love her. She and her hubby are going to adopt an adult dog from a shelter. They've picked one out that is being fostered right now, and she needs a home, too.

    Your daughter and her hubby are doing the right thing. I have two rescues myself. She is a good look girl and looks so terribly abused in the posted picture. Good for you. :o) DD

    She feels very sorry for herself when she wears the reindeer antlers or when she was dressed as a 'flower' girl, but she was well rewarded with her favorite bones afterwards. That's worth it in her eyes! The dog my daughter and hubby are going to adopt is a lab/shepherd cross and actually looks a lot like Akira.

    She's a good dog, too. She's smart and well-behaved. She's gentle, but I don't think I'd want to be a person who tried to break in or who threatened one of her 'people.'

    She's a great dog and gets along well with my cats. They know she's a big softie, so they rub up against her and even wash her at times.
