Two Dogs

Once upon a time there was a dog name Wrangler.


Wrangler and his brothers and sisters lived in a field under an abandoned travel trailer. One day men came and put them in a truck while their mom was out hunting for food.

A few weeks later, Wrangler found his humans and his forever home with a beautiful backyard. It was all his, and it had a tall fence to keep any men from taking him away. Inside he had a soft bed. And windows to look outside. His humans gave him plenty of food and treats. They played with him and loved him.

Life was good.

Then one day Wrangler's humans came home with another dog, whose name was Shiner.


Shiner was a tiny little thing with a very loud bark, and Wrangler wanted him to go away. Now he had to share his yard and his humans. He didn't like that. So he tried to be big and mean. But his humans didn't like that.

Then one day everything went into a big truck and Wrangler and Shiner went for a long ride with their humans to a new house with new smells and a new backyard big enough for both of them.

Now Wrangler and Shiner play together and look out for each other and take care of their humans. They have plenty of windows, plenty of food and treats, plenty of soft places to sleep. And plenty of love.

Life is good.

That's what it's all about ... love. It makes their world, doesn't it? Beautiful dogs ...

Aw, beautiful pictures of beautiful dogs.

Our dogs ask for little and give so much, don't they?

Aubrie said...

What a cute story! My first dog actually liked my second dog. Phew! Now they sleep together at night and keep each other warm.

But they do fight over bones!

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Great story, Carol! My cats wave to your dogs.

Ann Best said...

What beautiful dogs! Happy day. Life IS good for Wrangler and Shiner. Lovely post, Carol. It made me smile.

Carol Kilgore said...

Aubrie - That must be nice. Ours are OK now, but the beginning was tough.

A great story. Glad everyone is happy in the new home. Ironically, I blogged about a dog today, too. No pictures though.

We have a big yard for our dog but it's an important requirement when looking for houses.

Lydia K said...

Awww! Can I say it again? Awwww!

Carol Kilgore said...

Laura - I love puppy pictures, too.

Maryann - We're all one happy pack. Or family.

Doris - I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Clarissa - It is important.

Lydia - Awwwww...thanks :)

Manzanita said...

That is one sweet story. A perfect love story. A dog's love is so unconditional.... well, maybe omit food.

Talli Roland said...

Gorgeous dogs - what cuties! A very happy story!

Teresa aka JW said...

Beautiful dogs and story with a happy ending.

Carol Kilgore said...

Manzanita - Yeah, there is the food thing. Wrangler smells everything ten ways from Thursday before taking the first tiny bite. Shiner is totally food motivated and catches small treats on the fly.

Talli - I'm so thankful they finally reached an understanding between them. It took a while.

Teresa - Thanks. They're sweethearts.

Hart Johnson said...

Yay for Wrangler and Shiner! Oh, I loved this! Animals are so funny adapting to a new one, aren't they?

Hannah Kincade said...

they're both adorable! I wish I could have dozens of pets. dozens.

Carol Kilgore said...

Hart - Very. Every once in a while Wrangler lets Shiner pretend he's the Alpha.

Hannah - Wouldn't that be such fun!
