Piglets Pooch


Piglet has her own dog. He lived next door tied up for three years and had always wanted to be our dog. When he escaped he'd run like a rabbit and then come over here. She fell in love with him and begged our neighbors to give him to her. They really didn't spend time with him. He was just a yard dog. It took him about a year to really become a great dog. He's very smart. He potty trained ASAP. We believe he is an English Shepherd. As you can see he is quite content and very loved. He even gets to sleep in the bed with Piglet. His name is Axel Indiana.
One of their favorite activities is to go skateboarding. Piglet has a harness for him and
she holds on with both hands to his back.
Then she squats and rides the board with him basically
acting as a "sled dog". They both get a work out.

Hello Axel Indiana!

You asked for it, You got it. No he is definitely not a red headed step child. Did you see the vet pics over at Kathy's she has got to be a vet. How cool is that?

Coffee Bean said...

Yes, Kathy is a vet.

She wrote on my blog once that her daughter ran away to join the circus when she was young. It all worked out.

She also left a hilarious story on my blog about having been in the back at her clinic by herself and scraping a bruise off of a peach with a tongue depressor and leaving it on the counter. She got busy and forgot about it. The vet techs saw it and wondered what it was, thinking it was some kind of sample taken from an animal. She went and got it, sniffed it and looked it over and then ate it just to get a reaction from them. And she did.

I just put on my blog that a friend once grossed me out eating a bruised apple. When Kathy put that story on my blog I was so grossed out. My mother-in-law also eats bruised fruit.

Anyway, Kathy, if you read this... Howdy! I hope you don't mind my talkin' bout ya!

AWWWW that dog is adorable!

Our neighbor has a dog that I covet. They had never owned a dog and I don't htink they properly give her the attention she needs and such. They love her and stuff,but I don't konw, I just want her. She is a yellow lab and sweet as can be.
/sniff oh well, Ihave two dogs, but I've alwasy wanted a big dog, ( mine weigh about 20-25 lbs) so they are not that big.
Have a great day Karen!
