Here is the Bailey (who is a long haired Dachshund mutt I think) with the Cat. The Cat was the best animal I ever had but died a little while ago after a stroke. You would never know it by looking at his eyes but he was blind from a brain tumor crushing his optical nerve,

Another of Bailey, looking at the squirrels out the back window:

Here is the Kitty which is my new cat. He is my third favorite cat of all-time. Super gregarious and fearless.

Why stop there! I long-term dog-sat this Belgian Malinois named Rex that is the most perfectly trained dog I have ever met. Awesome family dog until you give him commands in German and then he immediately turns into a work machine.

Here are my 2 favorite foster dogs Max and Roxy. The beagle was an absolute shit disturber that especially loved to ambush Roxy when she was napping. Look at those eyes; he knows he is being a dick. They were inseparable.

And finally a dog that I helped look after for a while: Red exhausted after a long walk. He was shot and paralyzed defending his owner during a home invasion.

We never thought Red would ever find a forever home as he was so very labor intensive but it did happen after 2 and a half years! Here is an up-lifting video about that. See the green rope in the pic? Watch for the green things in this vid. He absolutely loved green for some reason.)

That picture and story of Red gives me hope that people are generally and genuinely good. Thank you.
