This is Bucky

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Omaha Steve (a host of the General Discussion forum).

https://imgur.com/a/rXWoVNH Bucky is a Pug/Boxer mix. I got this guy from the humane society about a year ago. He is now 6 years old. Methinks his previous owner was somewhat disabled or at least a senior citizen. In my current condition this guy keeps and eye on me all the time. Should I cough or make a moaning sound etc. He runs to me and puts his chin on my leg or the chair i am sitting in and looks intently into my eyes. I still haven't figured out how to post pictures directly to DU but at least i got the link to work.

6. boxers are that way.

bred to be the family dog- guardian, patient companion of children, and tolerant of other pets.
had one as a kid that was the teevee pillow, and our guardian, going as far as not letting my dad spank me.
had one for 12 yrs when my kids were small, and she was a perfect nanny. always where they were, or at least where she could see them. always in the bed w a sick kid. always there for me when it was all too much.

you got a goodun.

8. What a love!

We have a boxer mix, they are amazing dogs. He was damaged so not quite as calm or stable but great. To hear what Bucky does to check on you is just wonderful. Thanks for rescuing him. It sounds like it is a mutual admiration and love situation now and that is perfect!

9. What an adorable pupper...Boxer/pug mix is perfect I think for temperament.

He is very sweet clearly. Dogs and cats bring such joy to our lives.

Idris has all my attention!

Cute puppy, and the look on his face tells me that he was worried when you snapped that pic 😉

23. Thank you for adopting even more!!!

There are transports out of Texas to other states because so many here are euthanized. Thank you to you (and everyone else) who adopt and foster those dogs being transported out. They would be dead otherwise.

24. Ahh, yes.

I happen to be a cat person but it's much the same.

My current cat came from the local shelter as a stray, so they didn't know much about her. When I brought her home she exhibited a number of behaviors that convince me her first human home was with large dogs and men. She had a way of sprawling on the floor that was a lot like what large dogs do. Plus, even though she tolerated me, a female, any time men showed up for whatever reason, she clearly preferred them and wanted to be with them. In many ways I was not the right human to adopt her, and for the first six months I seriously considered re-homing her. In time I recognized that I'd made a commitment and promise to her that I needed to keep. So I decided to accept and love her, and it's been good. My only regret at this point is that she's not a lap cat. I cannot get her on my lap, darn. Some nights she sleeps on the bed with me, but most nights she's elsewhere. Oh, well.

Aren't our four legged friends wonderful?

18. He's adorable!

When I had my dogs people would tell me they were lucky to have me. I always said I was the lucky one to have them. I guess it really goes both ways. Dogs are such wonderful beings.
