24 Hours In A & E

The Prof has gone to bed and I have been watching the channel 4 documentary " 24 Hours in A & E"
One part had me sobbing like a loon, though I knew I was crying more for Meg and less for the lady on tv with the ear infection.
George in his self contained and wise old way has just ambled up to me
He gave me  his typical scottie " arrroooo!"
And climbed into my lap which he seldom ever does
And there he has stayed, offering his fat Buddha tummy for rubbing.
I have a small black Scottish Terrier guardian Angel who has more skills in psychological care than the average psychiatrist

He has the paws AND the heart of a bear

  1. Bless him - he knows you're hurting and is trying to comfort you (or had he got an itch on his belly that needed rubbing!) Xxxx

  4. I always thought George was special. I think dogs can smell fear - and I think they can smell unhappiness too. Arrrooooo!

  6. Enjoy this special bond while it lasts - like Gill indicated, there are others in the wings ready to take that load off your shoulders as well. Just maybe not in such a demonstrative way as George

  10. In their own ways they cope although you will never know, but I have always thought George is special & he is showing it now.

  11. George is a wise and loving soul . Amazing how they recognise pain and offer their love and a round tummy to pat. I think George is a clever little fellow , very interesting how he has been reacting to Meg's death . George is clearly a clever and intuitive soul. I am glad you have a tummy to pat and a boy who is looking after you xxx

  12. He's absolutely gorgeous, perhaps he is coming into his own now. Now that the pack has altered. A shift in dynamics is no bad thing. He is obviously wanting to comfort you and in doing so is comforting himself.

  13. As I said yesterday George is the steadfast one
    Always knows his place in the pack and very attuned . But with that heart of gold.
    I am happy he is helping you out and you him.
    Scotties are grand little souls, they pack a lot in thoes little bodies.

    cheers, parsnip

  14. Back from my holidays I am sending you a big hug in recognition of Meg;s passing. And i am also sending you some chin tickles for George.

  15. Despite what a lot of people may think, animals do know when we humans are upset. My old kitty made it quite plain whenever I was upset. It's good to cry John and quite natural.

  17. What a good boy is that George. Both of you feeling better with just one cuddle. Xoxox to you all.

  18. Bless George. He's there to help when we can't be.

  19. I've always felt that plump little Terrier Buddha belly's are a universal cure for most everything. Well done George. X

  20. George has such a tender face. A good comforter with instinct.

  21. Animals know when we are hurting; and dogs are often used as therapy animals.
    God bless.

  22. That is one adorable baby. He knows what you need and knows how to work it. He's taking care of you in his own way....

  23. Don't discount the intuitiveness of animals. We have two Leonbergers and one died of cancer. The other one would not go into the room where his dog friend died. He never laid in the spot where his friend laid either. But often goes out to the garden and lays upon his friend's grave. It gives me goose bumps..

  24. Sweet George. He's my favorite of your pack. What a good little man he is!

  25. Dogs make the best doctors. God bless them.

    Love,

  30. There are some lovely comments here, John. Hope they give you some comfort.

  31. I think of you every day.Your's animals are so "human"in the good sens.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sometimes when we desperately wish that our pets could talk, they 'connect' instead, which, in some ways, can be even better. Looks like your dear little Georgie has this ability - a further reason, if one were needed, to treasure him.

  33. I love those bear paws!

  34. He is very pretty, and very photogenic. Maybe you could get him on TV.

  36. Bless his little heart & Buddha belly xx

  37. I hope you offered him your tummy for him to rub too John hehe. Dogs just seem to know when things are bad. Best wishes.

  38. Nothing better than a bit of doggy TLC - they know when it is needed.

  44. I've never met George in person but I love him dearly.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow he does have bear paws. Perhaps you will see a little more of him now, if he decides to share.

    ReplyDelete
  46. The best kind of love during a sad spell. Animals I do believe have more compassion than many humans.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Now if that's not a sign that animals have feeling and can sense ours, I don't know what is. Georgie knows your sad and so is he. Take comfort in one another.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Good old George- knowing how to comfort you.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Strange and lovely, isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Love the picture of Meg and George on your side bar! You can tell they love a cuddle!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Dogs are humans in dog suits. They do indeed have human emotions but express them a little differently. George is an old soul who knows what you need and he gives his love and comfort freely. Give him a belly rub for me :-) Gayle
