    Oh Joy, I am so sorry this happened to your dog. Our pets are like family and it really hurts when something happens to them. I don’t know how anyone can hurt a poor animal like that.

    Thanks for the advice, Ruby. The neighbor called us & said our dog was at his place, so hubby & drove over. He said our dog had been on his deck & jumped off, then went for his chickens. He told us our dog’s back legs kept going out from under him. We went home & throughout the day, Duke kept getting sicker & weaker. He constantly wanted water, so kept a big bowl near him. We finally left him & went to bed at 10:30pm. My hubby checked on him at 4:00am & he was dead & real stiff. We had a relative dig a hole & bury him. By the way Duke acted, we knew it was poison that got him. No proof, but pretty sure that neighbor poisoned him. His nickname was Jumping Jack, because he always jumped up to us to get a hug. Sorry! I don’t mean to be so morbid & sad, as that happened several years ago. He was a good ole boy!

    Glad you wrote that, Jean H. I was thinking the same thing. And Joy, there is a halter you can get to sooth nervous dogs.

    Joy did you let your neighbor get away with killing your dog? I would have him a dose of whupass!

    Pretty smart move. He was determined to get his ice & then eat it, too.
    My hubby & I had a husky just like this one. His name was Duke. Sadly, a neighbor poisoned him, because he bothered his chickens. It was so hard to watch him die. We have another husky now named Demas. Pretty but real dumb & jumpy. Scared to death of thunder & if I casually swing my purse towards him. Not a good watch dog. He’ll wag his tail & lick someone to death.

    My kitty stands right by my feet while I’m getting ice hoping some will drop on the floor. And of course, it always does … 🙂

    While I think this is cute I don’t think I would want a dog getting his own ice like this. I had a dog that liked to eat ice, but I would through it to him and he would catch it. This dog is beautiful!
