DaneAcres Titan AKA "Buddy" after a very short

Cracker Jax AKA “CJ” the best friend I ever had went to the

companion and my protector. CJ was the gentlest and most loving Dobie I've ever
had the pleasure to be around and I miss him everyday.
3-15-90 to 3-16-05
My daughters first dog. He was a true credit to
his breed. He was faithful, loyal, and very protective. His intelligence was
his downfall, for he could open doors by turning the knob with his mouth and if
we didn’t keep the doors all locked he could let himself out. Sadly to say, one
day the door was left unlocked and Duncan
let himself out and was hit by a car. We lost a true friend and companion that
day. Our family went for a few years before we were ready for another
In 1976 we bought a new home and decided it was time for another pet.
That’s when Benji came to live with us. He was a
beautiful cocker spaniel and loved the kids dearly. He developed heart disease
and left us in the spring of 1990.
In 1988, my husband’s, boss had a litter of Dobies.
Fred and I went to look at them, and one little female would not leave us
alone. She followed us everywhere and begged for attention. We ended up taking
her home with us, and named her Penny Pooh Bear. She loved everyone and
everyone loved her, her favorite game was Frisbee and she’d play till she
dropped. She was very good with children and was very protective of her home.
She would let you in but you could not leave unless Fred or I walked you out.
She was this way with everyone, even if she knew you, we came home many an
afternoon to find someone like Fred’s or my mom sitting in the living room
because Pooh wouldn’t let them leave. She was one of the best friends we ever
had and we miss her every day.
Mr. Stubbs lived with us from 1990 to 1995, when we had to put him down
because of aggression. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do.
Buster Brown lived with us from 1990 to 2001, he was gentle and loving.
He would always sit at the window in the afternoon watching for Fred to come
home from work. You couldn’t get him to leave his post no matter what, he’d sit
there for hours, sometimes, Fred worked very late.
Buster left us just before his birthday in March of 2001. It was a sad day in
Over the years I have had many animal friends live with me. I have taken
in many orphaned and abandoned critters, such as rabbits, squirrels, and birds,
and fed and cared for them until they were able to survive on their own. One
such critter was Shadow the raccoon. The problem was Shadow refused to return
to the wild for a long time. She lived with us for a little over 4 yrs. and it
was a real adventure. She got along very well with the dogs and cat that we
had, and she totally loved Fred. Shadow was never caged and could leave when
she wanted to, she would come in the house through the dog door to eat and
visit. One of her favorite pastimes was to watch T.V. and play with the remote,
and her favorite food was fried chicken. We were very careful and made sure she
had her rabies shots and proper medical check ups annually. We got Shadow when
she was just a few days old in the spring of 1995 [her mother was killed in a
building tear down] and she was with us until July of 1999, at the time Shadow
left us she weighed over 50lbs. , she just went off one day and never returned.
We like to think she returned to her own kind, and is living in the woods
somewhere. Raccoons life expectancy in the wild is
approx.7 yrs. So she is most likely gone to
to be with Pooh who was one of her best friends.
WE DO NOT RECOMMEND RACCOONS AS PETS, THEY
ARE VERY DISTRUCTIVE AND CAN BECOME VERY DANGEROUS AS THEY MATURE.
We were very lucky with Shadow. She caused minimal damage to our home and
didn’t hurt anyone.
