I was given away 3 or 4 times until this nice retired couple adopted me. They never had a dog before and were a pretty easy mark. Bark - and they feed me. Bark louder - they take me outside. I pretty much bark at everything and everywhere. I also lick a lot. I knew Mom & Dad were annoyed, but I couldn't help myself.
One day Marge came to visit and she spent a lot of time with me, doing touches on my legs, my mouth. It felt so good that I just relaxed and enjoyed it. She even wrapped me in a bandage type thing that I didn't like at first - but then it felt good.
My Mom & Dad now give me Touches and ear slides and my anxiety and barking seem to be less.
Thank you Marge for improving my life. As Seabiscuit said "You can't throw a whole life away because it's banged up a little."
