Sometimes a dog enjoys reading about the life of another dog, and this dog is no exception. I just finished reading A Big Little Life by Dean Koontz, which is the touching story of his dog, Trixie, a golden retriever. Koontz is a writer and the book is "a memoir of a joyful dog". Trixie was a dog who was trained to be a service dog, but had to retire early due to elbow surgery. Dean and Gerda Koontz adopted Trixie, and the book chronicles not only Trixie's story, but also the effect Trixie had on their lives. You can tell Trixie was a very special dog by the way her human dad writes about her, and I only wish all dogs could have the kind of love Trixie had. Some of us dogs are lucky to have humans who dearly love us. I feel bad for dogs who never know that love, but even sadder is all the humans who could have that love, but don't choose to get a dog for various reasons. Those humans don't know what they are missing! The book also mentions the wonderful work of Canine Companions for Independence, which was responsible for Trixie's training. It is wonderful what those trained dogs can do for people with disabilities. If you enjoy reading about dogs, as I do, this is a good book to read.
I think it is time that I cover an item that is very important to me. That item is ice cream. I love it. Angel Zoom Smokey and myself get a small cup of ice cream every night, and we look forward to our treat. It is cold (like snow) and white (vanilla) like snow, and it is sweet like candy. With those 3 things going for it, it makes a wonderful treat for a Siberian husky because we like snow and cold, and I happen to enjoy things that taste sweet. Mommy had the nerve to give me Frosty Paws when I was a puppy, and I refused to eat it. It was disgusting. It didn't even look like ice cream. I had tasted ice cream already and I knew it was better. Daddy went to a drivethru ice cream place, and got himself and Mommy an ice cream cone when I was a wee puppy. When Mommy's cone was being handed to her, guess who grabbed it. If you guessed me, you would be on target. After tasting that delicious ice cream, there was no way you could con me into thinking Frosty Paws was the same. I suppose it might fool the dogs who have never had human ice cream, but my motto is, if you want to try something delicious, eat what the humans eat.
I hope all my readers had a nice weekend. Have a tail wagging good day!
