What Sydney lacks in manners he makes up in sheer entertainment. Maybe you have a little stinker like our Syd? Living free but living off us for free, he often goes his own way and pretends he doesn’t hear our “Sydney, sit” or “Quiet” while his having a barkathon.
Sydney’s been our bad dog for thirteen years, and he is not about to stop. We love him even when he does his own thing. So the following modeling sessions either came about as luck or an off-day, when he worked for pets, treats and praise.
My new friend, Fran, send me this dear photograph of her two rescue dogs. The black and tan saluki dog came to Fran with the name of Hunter. He’d been abused so his Fran, his new mom, gave him a new identity, Magik Hunter. She calls him Magik.
The whippet rescue dog has helped to calm and to reassure Magik. Of course his mom and a kind dog trainer helped him learn he now lives in a perfectly safe home. It took four to five months for Magkic to re-learn to trust. Now, as you can see, he loves his new family dearly. What could be a better Valentine pet photograph?
Dog Breed: Saluki
The Saluki, is a dog which was historically bred
in the Fertile Crescent where agriculture originated.
The Saluki is classed as a sighthound and has their typicaldeep-chested, long legged body.
Scientific name: Canis lupus familiaris
Life span: 12 – 14 years
Speed: 43 mph (Maximum, Adult)
Mass: 40 – 60 lbs (Adult) - Google page for Saluki dog
Remember to adopt a saluki dog from a rescue, ethical breeders like the one who raised Magkic went to great trouble to find and rescue this handsome and gentle dog. Millions of dogs in America die in animal shelters due to lack of a home. The number of purebred dogs has remained at a steady 25% for the past 30 years. So keep calm and rescue, give foster care, rehome and adopt dogs. Thanks for reading.

Our dogs gave us so much. Our beloved (long gone) keeshond, Dawn, taught our family patience and tolerance. Dawn loved our whole family. When our daughter came to us, in foster care, Dawn made the baby her business. Keeshonds are known as wonderful family dogs. Dawn showed love to all. What an example Dawn showed by daily interest in all that went on with our child. I never witnessed any jealousy from our dog.
So today I give acknowledgement to Dawn’s patience and gentle sibling willingness. Not all pets do well with babies or children. From our child’s first observation of Dawn, she seemed to adore our dog. As a toddler, our child would walk or crawl over and curl up inside Dawn’s furry love-seat shaped body. I felt so happy to see Dawn calmly accept our child’s need for closeness. This photograph shows their bond, plus how comfortable and cosy they enjoyed being.

“For April, BlogPaws celebrates Small Pet Appreciation Month. So all you bunny, chicks, hamster, rabbit, gerbil, ferret, fish, gecko, bird, and other small pet parents: This one’s for you!”
As a family we adopted our first rabbit, after both of our beloved dogs died within six months of each other. No way could we replace 16 years of loving attachment, fun, care-taking and adventure with Dawn and Nabisco.

As a mom, I knew our child needed an animal to love. I needed an animal to love too. Something about waking up to give care, feeding, giving fresh water and love to an animal remains essential to my peace and happiness.
