June Bug... Fur Friends Friday...

Welcome to the second edition of Fur Friends Friday. I hope you will join the party by linking to a post about your pet.

This is my dog, June Bug. Her nickname is "Buggles."

One day, Bug allowed me to photograph her.

She smiled for the camera.

But after that day, she quit allowing me to take her photo. She just hates the camera now.

Bug is a very unique dog with a very special story.

She was one of 159 dogs confiscated from a hoarder.

On her first night in captivity, she escaped. They couldn't find her.

She lived in the wild for 7 months. Then I caught her in a trap. She was terrified and cowered in the corner for a whole week.

Then on the seventh day, she climbed on top of me and licked me all over my face.

Now, she loves me... and Cowboy. But if you come over, she'll hide. She's just terrified of people.

Which makes me so sad because nobody gets to see her funny personality that keeps us constantly laughing.

I call this photo, "Crazy Eyes." She was struggling to get away from me and the camera. Oooo... scary!

She never stops wagging her tail. Except when I bring out the camera. Sometimes she just sits down in the road and won't follow me or look at me.

"I am not looking at that camera."

"Forget it, lady!"

"I won't do it."

"Oh, alright. But this is the last time!"


  1. She is sooooooooo cute! I'm glad she has a good home now and someone who loves her. She sounds like a good pet!

  2. June Bug is adorable!!! I'm so glad you saved her and gave her a good home!

  3. What a lovely story! Thanks for sharing this cutie with us all! :)

  4. She is a cute dog, it's sad she had such a rough start. I bet she is so happy to have you!

    I have a dog that hates the camera. He heads in the other direction every time I get it out.

    He was a stray that came to live under the truck in our driveway. He is still people shy but the MOST lovable dog with me and my husband.

    I will try to get a post together and link up.

    Talk to you soon ;)
