Nurse Pogo, Super Chihuahua - Very Special Dog

by David Franklin
(Mason, Mi. U.S.)

Pogo is our 4 year old female chihuahua. She has an uncanny ability to find hidden pain or injury. Like a lot of dogs she sees the obvious scrapes and cuts and wants to fix them by licking them. The ones that you can't see is what makes her special.

Here's the examples. My wife has a chronic ligament problem with her right calf and ankle.
On several occasions, tonight being one of them, Pogo will lick up and down the affected area and her accuracy is uncanny.

There is no medication or cream on the area that would promote the licking. I

f you have dogs you probably know how their tail responds to how how they feel. In her case her tail is at a nice upright position as a rule with the tip curved slightly. When she is alarmed it comes more over her back and if it involves a squirrel or cat her tail will come all the way over until it touches or lays on her back.

When our special dog is in nurse mode her tail is down and off to one side. She takes on a serious look and quite simply works on whatever it is she is picking up on.

Here are the other examples. I suffer from really bad headaches every now and then. On 2 occasions - she was sitting with me once and the other time I was laying down - she would go directly to the pain and it is usually on the right temple.

Same story. She seems to know and I'm not sure how and again the accuracy to the pain is uncanny.

I am a remodeler and have that elbow pain associated with swinging a hammer. Again Pogo the magnificent special dog has found that spot as well and goes into what we now refer to as "Nurse Mode"

The crazy part is I will let her lick it even though some would be grossed out or annoyed.

I thought this was worth telling. I have had some really great dogs but none with this dog's ability to locate pain.

She's playful, has lots of tricks she can do. She loves hot wheels and balls.

I've always been a big dog person but no matter the size, this dog is special.
