Dogs definitely have some sort of instinct in pleasing their families.juliusotinyo wrote:There's never been a dog like chowder (my kids named it after the cartoon character) much like you I hated dogs at first. It was not even a playful dog, it just loved sitting next to me or following me around. I never trained it but it always seemed to know what I wanted it to do, like chase after hares and squirrels or just sit.hsimone wrote:Thank you, Fabian Omondi, for reading!Fabian Omondi wrote:Wow thanks for sharing this,am glad I got the opportunity to go through it

I'm so sorry to hear about losing your first dog in a car accident. I appreciate you sharing something so personal.juliusotinyo wrote:Nice to hear about Zoey's story. I have 4 dogs in my farm but am not close to them ever since I lost my first one in a car accident. They are all German shepherds, still its always lovely seeing my wife and kids play with them.
Even with this terrible experience, it's nice to hear that you have dogs for your wife and kids, and they enjoy to play with them. I imagine a farm would be such a great place of German shepherds - all that space to run around! Thank you again for reading and sharing.
I'd warmed up to him within a year and whenever we met after my long travels, always so aloof, he wouldn't respond to my calls but would follow me everywhere. Until one morning he disappeared for 2 days. We found his body about 3km (1 mile) from the farm next to the highway. It wasn't common for him to go so far, left me with many questions.
Thank you for sharing. I'm so sorry that happened. Sometimes I wish animals were able to communicate to let us know what they are thinking.
