Popping up from out of nowhere...




I don't know what it is about my dog Timothy (a 2-year-old Maltese), but for his own security and comfort, he must find a way to put his butt on me while he sleeps. At night, it's like a warm, fluffy compress on my back and I have no loving shame in admitting it.

That's one high speed ball of fluff. :3:

We put the Doggles on him so when he sticks his head out the window for wind, he doesn't have to squint.

Please also note that he is wearing a seatbelt harness AND is being held by me during said adventures with window wind. Timothy is very protected.

When Timothy walked back into the apartment, it took him all of five seconds to remove the Doggles from his head. However, he wore them in the car with no fight.

All the time. I can't stop. He's so soft! He's, like, the best parts of a dogge and catte combined into a single fluffy, hypoallergenic entity.

But I am at work, so I will have to wait until I get home before I can pette him so much that he "turns crescent" to let me rub his belly.

Soon: an effort post regarding Timothy's adopted sibling, Zipper (I felt like she needs to have her story explained before she got posted).

Wise Fwom Yo Gwave

Popping up from out of nowhere...




Here is story:

On the morning of February 4th, I was pulling out of my carport when I saw a little critter-thing crawling out from behind the garbage area of the adjacent apartment building. When I first looked at the thing, I thought it might be an opossum or something, as it was really dark and moved strangely. As it came closer, I discovered it was actually a very small dog! I opened my car door (which I had stopped in the middle of the lot), and called to the dog. The dog instantly ran to my car. I held my hands out, and it scurried under my (still on, but parked) car.

The dog laid prone for several minutes. Nothing I could do would lure her out. I even ran back into the apartment to get treats, but no go.

Finally, I call my wife (who was in bed with conjunctivitis) and said "I need your help. I have a dog under my car, and can't get it out."

She asked: "Is it dead?"
"No," I said.
"Let me put some pants on."

Minutes later, she came out with treats and a broom, while I directed slow traffic to drive around my car, alerting them that there's a dog. My wife finally pokes the dog out, and it races under a truck that had pulled up behind me. The moment we latch our hands around the dog, it drops a gigantic deuce in the middle of the street.



This picture was taken just two minutes after she was rescued from the underside of my car. My wife took her inside, gave her a bath, and put her in the kitchen with an enclosed gate.

Timothy, who had been with us for a year and a half at that point, seemed to observe that Zipper was really scared. In what seemed like an effort to calm her, he picked up and slid his leftover rawhide scraps through the gate. A couple of hours later, my wife took her out of the gated area, and she and Timothy played together - running around and trying to mount each other's faces and hind quarters.

My wife decided to take Zipper to the local animal shelter to see if anyone had lost their dog (who we estimated was 4 months old when we found her), but we also signed the commit-to-adopt paperwork when we turned her in. If someone hadn't lost her, if they had simply given up on her, she was going to be our Zipper.



The picture above was taken from my first visit with Zipper at the shelter. It was the first time I had been able to visit her since we rescued her. It was also the first time she licked my face.



Timothy, meanwhile, was trying so hard to get out of his crate that he nearly phased through the bars with his fluff.

After Zipper had been spayed, she was released to us (four days after turning her in). We immediately trimmed her bangs so we could see her pretty little eyes:



She was only five and a half pounds, almost literally a bag of bones after having spent however many days on the street. She was exhausted and lethargic when she was brought home (naturally, due to the anesthesia), but the very next day was already trying to race about.



This image was taken a week later. The lady in the photo is my wife (the zombie from the first picture).

Once Zipper had been groomed properly, her normal look took hold:



So yeah, Zipper is a rescue in the truest sense. She's also an awesome dog. Now I will :justpost: more pictures:

When I told my wife I had been doggeposting, she asked me "Why don't you give them the link to his Instagram?" ... because of COURSE he has an Instagram.

Naturally, I'm still gonna post Timothy and Zipper on my own, but in case you want to see what my wife has posted in the past, check this out: https://instagram.com/timothyfluffybutt/

Also, I have two appropriate videos: one of Timothy when he was just four months old, and one from when he was fifteen months old.

Or did I miss that part?

This is actually a recent development. Her hair is all cut evenly. That mohawk is completely natural. Mandinka tribe represent, I guess.

i'm making this up

I wish we were that clever. It basically went like this: we were binge-watching Gilmore Girls and, predictably, my wife wanted to name her Lorelai. I thought that was cliche, so I started looking at things around the room for inspiration. My eyes locked on my DVDs of Chip 'N Dale's Rescue Rangers, and I suggested Zipper, like the fly. My wife thought this was perfect because she races around really REALLY fast.

So, not as clever, but there you go. Actual reason why she has the name Zipper.

:rip:

This particular dragon has lasted over a month. Original dragon lasted three months prior to that. However, between those? There had been four and most would last, like, 2 hours because Timothy is a wizard when it comes to finding seams.

Timothy has no interest in the dragon anymore, and is more interested in hunting for the circle-squeakers in other toys so he can chew off the bits.

A good-rear end dogge, basically.

When I issue commands to either Timothy or Zipper, I make eye contact when I call their name. When they register that they're ready for a command, their ears flip forward (sometimes a small head-tilt) letting me know they're receptive.

I know this isn't the most ... convenient? way to go about it, especially when you're trying to say "Timothy stop being a bitch" from a room away because the kids outside are shrieking at the top of their lungs because they've apparently never gotten wet at the pool before.

The tenants of the apartment complex I live in break restrictions all the goddamn time. My upstairs neighbor has a pair of pits, and a neighbor down the way has a samoyed. I'm sure none of them are even bothering to pay a pet deposit.

For my part: I did not declare Zipper, but they knew of Timothy when we moved in. No loving way am I paying double deposit and double-pet rent, garbagetowne USA. Eat every dick.
