Hayyyyyyyyyyyy. Melvin man here. I’ve been pretty busy itching lately, the chillies make mold and then me has the need to scratch, scratch, scratch. Anywho…
I don’t remember much about my life before Her. I think I lived outside. I know I scratched a lot. The first week I was at her house I was surprised she let me stay inside, all day. I even got a bed. We spent a lot of time at the vet that week, ‘figuring things out’. At one point she got the broom out and I thought “oh no!! not her too” and I fell to the ground in fear ready for the pain and I even pee’d a little. But no pain came. She threw the broom in the basement and came back and brought me to a calmer place. She did the same thing when I’d freak out and try to death the hangers. Eventually, she would give me a treat each time the broom or hanger came out. Now, I nap through those things. I guess looking back, she was training me to feel love. That was nice of her.
Fast forward today and I think she can read my mind! I love that about her. Like now, with the chillies, she knows I’m going to be itchy. How in the world…? And the other day I had an ear ouchie and she took one look at me and knew (she said it was the blood but I don’t know what that means and I think she’s being modest). One of my favorite things about her is when we are at the vet and she has the money dispenser out and she says ‘you need to get a job’ to me. HAHAHAHAHAHHA, dogs can’t work silly!! She’s funny.
Bottom line. I love her. I love her. I LOVE HER. I must be near her. I must bark if the brown truck man comes because I am afraid he will put her in a box and take her with him (can you tell the brown truck man comes a lot). I like the big bed, cause she is there. If she says ‘be right back’ I go with her, seconds feel like years to me!
I love her, even though I can tell she is planning something…
I just love this, brings tears to my eyes. I am so happy you brought Melvin into your life, rescuing him from what sounds like a very un happy life. I am the same way with my Bob, we rescued him as well and we think his previous owners took something like a bat to him as he is afraid of the broom and bat and anything like a bat. Thank you for this blog I look forward to reading every day 🙂
I love you! And Bob!!!
This brought tears to my eyes! I think that rescue dogs are the best and now that Melvin has shared his thoughts, I’m firmly convinced.
They are the very best of the best!
Oh Melvin, I am sure she loves you just as much if not more than you love her!
And now you’ve peaked my interest…..could another 4 legged member be joining your family? 🙂
“She” is always planning something!!!
I love this 🙂
That dog owns me!
Melvin, you’re a sweetheart, an absolutely positively sweet sweet boy!
You know seconds do seem like years… I can go out, get the mail and Dottie greets me like I’ve been gone for days. I guess it’s love…
It’s so funny how they perceive time!!
You are a lucky dude, Melvin. Your mama loves you more than you can ever imagine. 🙂
Ah, I love this! I love Melvin, and I love how wonderful you two are together 🙂
How wonderful that you found such a marvelous home Melvin. I just adore stories like this. Not the sad beginning bits but the happy endings with wonderful people.
