Trigger! Aka: Trigz, Big Boy, Muscles
These are a couple of special boys, because both are rescue dogs. Our family adopted them from some really sad situations. Trigger almost died from neglect and a really bad case of heartworms a few years ago. Now he's obviously happy as a clam and healthy as can be. Jake suffered from abuse and has had a lot of trust issues to overcome. At first he was fearful of my grandpa and only liked women, but now that he feels safe and comfortable, he is a little joker.
You guys will never believe this, but both of these big dogs are terrified of me (all 3.5 pounds)! Jake completely avoids me and Trigger performs a lot of sniff-n-runs when I'm around. It's hilarious, but frustrating because I really want to play with these guys! My theory is they think I am Piggy Loo's incarnation. Mommy says that Piggy Loo was the most feisty old pug for miles around and kept Trigs and Jakey in line when she was alive. Every human family member misses her so much. Apparently Piggy lived with the family in the pre-digital camera era, which is why we can't post a picture of her on the blog right now. Anyhow, I wish Trigger and Jake would realize that I'm just a playful puppy and they shouldn't be so frightened!
Just so you don't forget how snuggly, adorable, and NOT scary I am:
