My name is Ocean, and I have a beautiful, tiny voice. I sing sometimes when no one is around. I also really love hot dogs. Before I arrived at Paws4ever, I was beaten up pretty badly by dogs, but as long as they keep a respectful distance, it's okay. I try to be forgiving and even allow them to lounge or play near me.
Because of that history, I have some chronic nerve damage and arthritis, for which I take daily medicine. They just give it to me on my tongue in a syringe. I know I have to take it, so I don't make too big a deal about it. I also realize that I have too much hair to properly take care of by myself, so I let my close friends help me with a spray bath and brushing every few days, but it has to be gentle, especially around my hips and back. After all these years, they are still sensitive, and I can't help but lash out in pain when people who don't know me well are too rough. I'd really like a nice, quiet place to retire where I have a nice view and running water to stick my head in.
