The Love Of Me Bonds My Humans.

*Pawesome!  My arrangement with my human brother and my human dad is working better than even I'd dare dream....*  Oh hello, there.  I was just thinking out loud.  Yes, it's me, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar!  

You might realise that my human brother, Tristan, my human dad, Gary and I, are going through some major changes in our lives.  Changes that caused me confusion and anxiety.  We moved from the home that we all lived together in for thirteen years.  I ended up staying with Gary for three months until Tristan finally moved into his own place. 

When Tristan moved in and took me to live with him, I was spending long hours on my own while he was at work.  I didn't know this until he told me. What with being in yet another new environment and not being used to being alone, I started to cry. "Where is Tristan?  I'm really scared.  Where is dad?"

Tristan's neighbours expressed their concern about my crying.  With that, Tristan and Gary took immediate action.  We now have a compromise in place.  The routine is that I stay with Gary from Sunday evening until Thursday afternoon.  I'm now getting full attention from the both of them.  I'm so much calmer now.  I even roll around on the carpets, just like the good old days.

I understand that as part of Tristan's independence, he wanted me to stay with him for most of the time.  He now understands that I need the shared love of both him and dad.
Lessons of love have been pawfoundly embraced.  *Pawesome!  My arrangement with my human brother and my human dad is working better than even I'd dare dream....*  Yes, when I was thinking out loud it meant this.  Tristan and Gary have bonded in a mutual determination that tells them their love for me is paramount.  Their love for each other has grown because of such mutual determination.  Such a magical, loving spirit of cooperation, of communication.  I want to cry but with tears of doggy joy.
I sleep in peace.  I get to see both my human brother and my human dad on a regular basis.  
This week I'm staying with Tristan.  He was so worried about my life-changing experiences of late that he has taken the week off work.  

Yes, there he is at twelve years old holding me as a two month old puppy.  Fourteen years on, the love I share with him, with my human dad, grows ever stronger.

  5. My oldest pup is laying right beside me as I was reading your blog. You can usually find her next to me, except at night, she doesn't like my snoring but the male pup isn't bothered by it and takes over her duties every night. Our youngest pup is pretty independent. Maybe that is because she is on the bottom of the totem pole.

    1. Hi human, Dizzy-Dick,

  25. Poor little girl. I read about your plight in your dad's last post, Penny, but unfortunately blogger ate my comment. I had every intention of going back, but ... well, I did not get around to it. Sorry.

    1. Hi human, Susan,

      That's a bit unfair of you, my well-meaning human friend. What you don't understand is that my human brother, Tristan, wanted to have his independence. Part of that was to have me with him most of the time. When they realised I couldn't be left alone at all, they quickly stopped doing that. So they are not silly at all. It just didn't work out like Tristan had wanted. That makes him sad and not silly!

  53. Awww!!! My first dog was a rat terrier that we swore was part Jack Russell. He looked a lot like Penny, especially while sleeping. I LOVED that little dog. Sounds like you have a great life, Penny!

  54. Hi human, Stephanie,

    Rat terrier mixed with a bit of Jack Russell is a good thing! :) I can tell how much you loved your little dog. My doggy senses can tell this from the ambience of your words.

    I have a good life, a shared love. Thank you, dear Stephanie.

    1. Hi human, Shannon,

      Gary is almost back. It looks like I'm going to have to do a few more pawblishings before he gets his last two brain cells working. The solution is great. Gary has bought a luxury bed. He has lost the luxury bed. It's now mine! Arf!

  56. I am so very happy to hear you are doing well. I was a bit concerned about the effect all those changes would have in you, dear Penny. Dogs do not take well not being with their "pack" for long periods of time, and additionally in an unfamiliar environment. Dragon and dwarves celebrate that your human dad and bro could work it out the best way for your welfare. Take good care of yourself, pretty one.

    1. Hi dragon, Al,

      Thank you my fine, fiery friend :) My humans were also concerned that so many changes in such a short time would stress me out. I'm used to constant human company. Gary is so worried about me until I settle better, that he takes me all over the place in his car.

      Look after your good self and your fine dwarves, Al.
