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.

Priscilla’s Pesky Brother

Question:
Dear Daisy Mae,
Thank you so much for what you do. It’s all so very interesting and helpful. My name is Priscella. I’m a 4- year-old English bulldog, kinda petite and pretty if I say so myself. My Mom recently rescued a puppy and now I have a new brother. He’s really nice and we have lots of fun, but sometimes he bites my face, playfully of course, and you can’t really blame him because I do have lots of extra skin on my face, but at times it irritates me. How do I get him to stop?
Thanks,
Priscella

Tally Ho

Question:

Dear Daisy Mae,
We’re raw-fed puppies, and we get to eat some really yummy stuff–turkey, deer (mom calls it venison), quail, duck, rabbits.
We have all of those things wild out here in the country. Mom says that they’re all nasty creatures though, and she won’t let us go out and catch them ourselves? We don’t think she’s making sense at all.

I Love Ham

Question:

Dear Daisy Mae,
Our humans love dogs and now they’d like to get one, and we think that’s pretty scary. Why do you doggies try to scare us? Even you little doggies are bigger than we are.
