 Small Pets Page



A fundamentalist Christian couple felt it important to own an equally fundamentalist Christian pet. So, they went shopping. At a kennel specializing in this particular need, the Jesus Saves Breeders, they found a dog they liked quite a lot. 

When they asked the dog to fetch the Bible, he did it in a flash. When they instructed him to look up Psalm 23, he complied equally fast, using his paws with dexterity. 

They were impressed, purchased the animal, and went home, all the while praising the Lord for delivering this animal to them. 

That night they had friends over. They were so proud of their new fundamentalist dog and his major skills, they called the dog and showed off a little. 

The friends were impressed, and asked whether the dog was able to do any of the usual dog tricks, as well. This stopped the couple cold, as they hadn't thought about "normal" tricks. Well, they said, "Let 's try this out." 

Once more they called the dog, and they clearly pronounced the command, "Heel!" 

Quick as a wink, the dog jumped up, put his paw on the man's forehead, closed his eyes in concentration, and bowed his head.



First treasure: "I had a very special little guy . . . (by Corinne)

. . . named Coco who got run over 3/18/98 in the street right next to our house. He was half-chihuahua and Yorkie - thus a very small dog. I got him as a puppy and he was seven years old when he died.

He was given to me the day I returned home from a one month stay in the hospital in Flagstaff, AZ after a "should have been fatal" auto accident. A dear friend of mine brought him to me to keep me company during an expected one to two month recovery in bed. He was only about as long as my hand and the most beautiful reddish-brown cocoa color - that's where he got his name. He laid right next to me during my recuperation and only left my side when Ted took him outside to do his "business".

Shortly after I was back on my feet, Coco accidently got out of the fence and was hit by a pickup truck!! The vet told me that he had massive internal injuries and probably wouldn't live. He would operate for $200., but didn't hold out much hope. I said, "I don't care how much it costs or what the odds - do whatever you can for my friend". His spleen had to be removed (just as mine did when I had my accident) and his liver was also damaged. He was kept on IV feeding and antibiotics for two weeks. I went by every day to visit him and encourage him to pull through. Against all odds, he did pull through and had no residual problems other than a tender hip. We both ended up with matching vertical incisions.

They called me Wonder Woman in the hospital in AZ so I called us "Wonder Woman and Wonder Dog". If ever I was sick during the next six years, he was always right by my side and I'm sure he believed that he was the reason I got well and I'm not so sure he wasn't right! We were the closest of friends. I do have a new friend who is every bit as loving whose name is Ewok. There's no love like that of a dog who adores you no matter what! The carved plate is a picture of Coco and the photo is Ewok. Corinne

Another Treasure: "We have a memorable pet dog . . ." (submitted by Shirley)

 His name is Sammy.

(Click on Pic for enlargement and pictures of Sammy diving!)

He was abandoned at our farm three years ago by some heartless individual. If they had only known what a joy he is to have, I am sure they would have had second thoughts about dumping him, but their loss has been our gain.
