Ramon

Jessica’s Hero

Dear Daisy Mae,

I grew up surrounded by dogs, all breeds big and small and I loved them all.

Then I went off to college and, when I graduated, started working – long hours. For too many years, I lived without a dog. It wouldn’t have been fair to any dog.

But, as soon as I married my wonderful husband, Esteban, I started thinking about getting a dog and Esteban smiled and said “Whatever makes you happy.”

So, on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 we brought Ramon home. He was just two months old. I had forgotten how mischievous puppies can be so Ramon, Esteban and I signed up for dog school at PetSmart. Ramon is a great learner and he got along so well with his classmates, especially you, Daisy Mae, and he loved Mike Miller, his fantastic trainer.

Esteban and I had been sweethearts in High School and were married for nine years when we decided to celebrate a religious wedding on Saturday, April 27, 2013.

Then life gave us one of its little surprises; three weeks before the ceremony, I was diagnosed with cancer.

Ramon sensed that something was wrong and immediately set about keeping me company, comforting me and just making me feel good, even when we moved to Houston, Texas, for treatment. When I cried, he would lick my tears as if he was telling me “Mami, don’t worry. It’s just a little bump in the road.”

I am so blessed with my wonderful husband, and we both feel blessed to have Ramon with us. He’s our little hero.

All the best,
Jessica Hecht

Dear Jessica,

So sorry to hear about your problem. I remember Ramon with fondness. What a fun and charming little fellow. Tell him I said hi. Love from all of us – me, Mom, Pop and Pepper.

Question:
Dear Daisy Mae,

I’m about 10 years old I guess. Actually I have no idea how old I am but I do know that for a long time I was the only dog around here and Mom and Pop paid a lot of attention to me. Then they adopted a Yorkie named Chyna (I’m a Maltese, white and elegant if I do say so) and this new critter is acting like the Princess of the apartment and Mom and Pop are buying it! I wish I could just say “Hello, long time loyal dog here. Needs attention” but they would just think I’m barking. What should I do?
Thanks, Paris the (elegant) Maltese

Dear Daisy Mae,
Baths are okay in the sense of tolerable, but the blow drier! I hate that thing. Any ideas?

Dear Daisy Mae,

I love to go for rides in the car with Mom but I’m not allowed in any of her favorite stores or restaurants. What gives? Thank you.

To Pee or Not to Pee?

Question:

Dear Daisy Mae,
Why can’t all dog owners let their dogs use pee pads if they are at work, esp if the house doesn’t have a dog door or backyard or somebody to come over to take the dog for a walk?
