I love hearing stories that talk about the very special bond between animals and their human caretakers, (who are often referred to as their "human parents").
I bet if I had the opportunity to be able to speak personally with this adorable pooch she would have a lot to say about her wonderful life, surrounded by the many species, including cats, horses and the other variety of critters with whom she shares her loving home.
Livinginavandown's adorable "Chug", (a cross between a Chihuahua and a Pug) Ziggy Stardust, was one of the more fortunate dogs who received the gift of adoption from a Shelter to which she had been surrendered. Her owner considers her to be one of the best investments she has ever made by bringing this loving pooch into her heart and home.
Ziggy Stardust has made it perfectly clear to her human mom that she considers herself to be a "big dog" while she carefully watches over her "mom". She is ever so protective of her during those special times that they share while Livinginavandown is out enjoying "our Earth Mother". Ziggy Stardust proudly wears the beaded necklace given to her as a gift. It makes her feel so darned feminine.Isn't she precious?
