    Heidi wouldn't go near my OH when he became poorly.
    She was much happier around him when he started treatment and checked his breath every morning, more in depth the day after each treatment.

    He finished his treatment and we didnt notice when she stopped (-too wrapped up in the good news!!). Out of the blue, she did it again recently and had us worried until we realised, it was a "routine check up" - Bless her:D:D

    We find it v hard to believe. Cant dismiss it as anything other than her knowing how poorly he was and that the treatment was working.

    What an amazing little soul.

    The way Lily plays with special needs children...in particular ones with autism. She senses they are 'different' (even before diagnosis) and she really brings them out of herself. She plays tug of war..pulling at their sleeves and trousers and has them in fits of giggles!

    In the first year I had Ziggy, I took over doing a butterfly transect for 3 weeks. For those that don't know about transects, you walk the same route which is divided into sections, and count how many of each butterfly species you encounter in each section, along with temperature, percentage sunshine and wind speed. Over the years, this builds up a good picture of how all the species are doing.

    So Ziggy did the walk with me 3 times.

    Next year, the warden was on holiday again and I was covering the transect. Some of it was through a patch of wooded limestone pavement, and I took the wrong turning. After a while, I realised and turned back. Ziggy was waiting for me at the place I should have turned.

    It was amazing, she'd remembered a walk done just 3 times, a year previously.

    I'm pretty sure Otto knows I'm pregnant - he is obsessed with my tummy and is forever trying to lick it. He was also very protective of me during my early pregnancy.

    Herman? Bless him, Herman was never the brightest but he had amazing comic timing.

    Dex has done a few things.

    On two occasions, he woke me up in the early hours of the morning when my Mum needed help; her room is downstairs and I was so exhausted I'd fallen into a deep sleep. Dex barked until I woke up, bless him.

    He's also a wonderful watch dog and is on high alert the second anyone approaches either our front door OR the family next door.

    On a more general level, he has brought me such comfort, and joy, and laughter over the past three years at a time when owing to my mother's illness, life is often almost unbearably stressful.

    Mine have "just" been there with me through some pretty major life changes, they have been my company and support. I'd like to say they have kept me sane, but that would be a lie :p.

    Jasper has calmed me down from many panic attacks. He climbs up on my knee when i feel one starting and leans heavily on my against my chest and abdomen which makes me notice my breaths speeding up and i'm able to draw in deeper slower breaths instead of quick shallow ones and also calms me. He also fetches things like my medication when i need them without being asked. He's an amazing dog and has brought such joy into my family.

    I believe every word of that. Dogs know when someone is not right and we should always listen to them. The last time I took Joshua on Royston Heath two dogs, a spaniel and a labrador, screamed when he came near them. He seemed ok, apart from his arthritis, then a week later he collapsed. I swear those dogs knew that he didn't have long.

    When Ferdie was a puppy one of our rabbits got out by tunnelling his way out of the run. Ferdie chased him and as rabbits will, the rabbit eventually stopped dead whereupon Ferdie positioned himself over the rabbit, two feet in front and two behind, until I came to scoop him up. After that if he saw the rabbit starting to burrow out, he would stand at the other end of the tunnel and bark at him.

    Clover gave me my life back :) I got her just after spending a year in a secure unit, as I was very ill. She gave me confidence and to this day looks out for me every day :)

    Daisy has given Clover confidence , and makes me laugh every day.. she's so bloody cheeky :D

    Flint did something the other day that surprised me.

    Goldie had been playing with this dog for about 10 minutes,I was walking along talking to it's owner,then all of a sudden the fur was flying and Goldie and this dog were having a bit of handbags.:eek:

    We both got our dogs on the lead and we were checking them over as she had blood on her.:eek:

    As I was checking Goldie over Flint came and sat in front of us both,facing the other dog as if to say if you want another go you will have to come through me.:p

    This was from a dog who avoids any sort of confrontation,it was sweet.:eek:

    Like Dogless has said, mine are my constant companions and as such they are just a part of my life, without them I would miss out on so much, I'd not see the seasons change in the way I do, I'd probably miss out on just sitting watching a buzzard or kestrel ride the wind over my head. In the grand scheme of things my dogs do nothing AMAZING, they don't have to, just being around them is good enough for me.
