Unbelievable, but four months have gone by, and Kingston’s mom came this week to pick him up and take him back home. He was so happy to see his mom that his whole body was in motion, wiggling and trying to jump, it was beautiful to watch this display of affection from him to his mom.
I always believe that I am fortunate for having different dogs come into my life because they are amazing companions and teachers. What did I learn from Kingston? That you usually remember the little things or quirks about others and that those are the ones that stay with you and later on realize that those “things” are the ones that make that being so unique. With that in mind, here are some of Kingston’s quirks:
- He does not bark during the day, but when he is sleeping and dreaming he barks loud enough to wake me up
- You’d know that it’s 10pm because he is asleep and does not care to do anything else unless he is offered food
- He grunts while waiting for me to put his food down as if saying, “Please, hurry up”
- He sounds like a bird when he is getting impatient
Those are just some of the things that make Kingston so unique and wonderful and for that and much more we love him.

I’m sure Kingston will miss you very much also.
I think he’ll miss Alex more than any of us:)
Hello! I do not own any pets but know many in my neighborhood and other friends who do. Their dogs/cats give them pleasure…but so much more than that. One of my blog topics is about Nikkie….my neighbor’s cat. I needed something to blog about and asked her for pictures etc. Well, she sent me tons of pictures. I mean Nikkie is her baby. lol
A few years ago I rode with a neighbor who was transporting a dog to a new owner. It was set up as a relay. Somebody brought the dog to her and then she drove the dog on down the highway for another 100 miles. Eventually it got to the new owner. I guess you know all about that kind of a program. It was very interesting to hear her explain it and about the love for the dogs.
Yes, that is a program manned by amazing volunteers. Our pets, in my case, dog, is part of my family and yes, she is my baby. Don’t be surprised to get tons of pictures from pet parents of their “kids”:)
