TOPIC: THE COCKER SPANIEL DOG - LILY
NOTE: I was meditating early this morning, and I saw a web page about a Cocker Spaniel dog, followed by the spirit of my precious little girl doggie, Lily who came to visit, and she walked around in the house like she owned it.
Lily died earlier this year, and this is the first time I ever saw her in spirit. She looked regal and was beautifully groomed, something she hated with a passion in real life. She would scream and squirm if I tried to brush her, and when we took her to be groomed, she had to be tranquilized because she refused to have her fur cut. She was different if you didn't have a tool in your hand, then she would lay right over and show you her belly to be rubbed and even the mailman loved her, something a mailman won't do when they meet dogs on their routes.
She ran away from home several times, and because she was chipped, and wore tags, the dog catcher lady would bring her back home and scold me and tell me to take better care of her.
The dog catcher lady didn't know about the screaming and tranquilizing poor Lily had to endure to be groomed. But that's okay, Lily was the sweetest little girl dog in the world.
Lily's partner Beau, however, is a different story. He didn't want to be touched at all, not even to be petted, and tried attacking me several times so I wouldn't go near him and still don't, though he loves to play ball with Joe, even as a puppy he would growl at me if I tried to pet him.
Grooming him was a horror story. The last time he was taken for grooming, Joe got called on the phone to come down help hold him down because he attacked the groomer. That happened more than once. We had to put a muzzle on him to go to the Vet too. He was forever getting stickers in his ears outside and he's pretty much deaf from that now, and I can't go near him and I won't play ball with him anymore either because of his poor behavior.
It's a shame because I love Cocker Spaniel dogs and I got this pair because I wanted to breed them so the world would have more of them. But that never happened because Lily had an eye problem.
In case people don't know, Cocker Spaniels have a secondary eyelid, inside the outer eyelid, and Lily's secondary eyelid came over her eye when she was young and wouldn't go back where it belonged, so the vet had to sew the eyelid down where it belonged. Naturally, that precluded using her for a breeding dog.
That never happened with our male Beau, but I wasn't going to buy another expensive female dog just to have puppies, so we never had any more puppies.
I don't want to get another one since Lily died either. I just don't have it in my anymore.
Since all we see on television about dogs are spay commercials by dog lovers and dog haters alike who just want to charge more for dogs, rather than dog rescue places. And on top of that, there are dog breeder hogs who breed all kinds of dogs just to make a few bucks, and those people deserve nothing but disdain in this world because they don't take care of their dogs, and keep them in dirty kennels and don't feed their dogs well either.
On the other end of that scale are the dog breeders who have championship dogs who treat peons like me with disdain for just loving my dog and not buying one of their really expensive dogs.
They don't know that my AKC registered dogs had excellent championship pedigrees, but they didn't like my puppy photographs.
That's too bad. Their dogs don't get the love I gave my dog.
Here is a photo of Lily and Beau.
LILY AS A PUPPY - YOU CAN SEE HOW ADORABLE
THIS IS LILY AFTER WE HAD HER SHAVED SO SHE WOULDN'T HAVE TO ENDURE BEING BRUSHED AND GROOMED SO OFTEN.
THIS IS BEAU WITH HIS SPIRIT FRIENDS. HE IS UNGROOMED BECAUSE IT WAS COLD OUTSIDE
I ALREADY EXPLAINED THAT HE ATTACKED THE GROOMER TOO, BUT SPIRITS DON'T CARE ABOUT THAT
THE SPIRITS KNEW WHO HE WAS IN SPIRIT
