"I've heard that St. Peter had a doggie door installed on the Pearly Gates a long time ago, and when our little animal loves arrive, he just grins and waves 'em on through."

Beautiful thought, and most likely true. My father-in-law is big into German Shepards and he had this one called Jay--the brother of my wife's dog, Kelsey--who grew to be almost 120 pounds and he and Lou were like father and son!! My kids loved to go to GrampaPuppies' house and we'd bring Kelsey and it just added to the reunion feeling. Then, one day, Lou and Jay were playing at this park they used to always go to and Lou let him off his leash so he could run around FRee...on the other side of the Park (a football field away), playing on a swing was a little girl about the same age as my daughter. Her dad was right there reading the paper, when all of a sudden, Jay took off towards the swingset at full speed with Lou in full sprint, first yelling commands for Jay to heel and then yellin' for the father to get to his daughter. Father and Jay arrived at the child almost simultaneously and Jay nipped at the girl's heel and barely broke her skin, but Lou put Jay down the next day...hadta kill him inside, but he said he's never been more scair't in his life--and he's an Army vet who's had enemy fire aimed at him--and said he couldn't sleep thinking that possibly his dog could do something similar to his grandkids.

RIP, Jay.

"I can't get used to the fact that I have so much more room now!"

I just moved this past weekend too and I am LOVING the extra room I have, even though I don't have much to fill it up either. I am rather enjoying the empty spaces knowing full well that they will be filled soon enough!

Fortunately, I did not have to wait on my internet connection. I have a neighbor who had it connected for me before I was even done getting the last load into the house so I was able to FReep as soon as I took a break. It's nice having neighbors who appreciate the importance of FReeping.

I'd suggest to you either a shelter or a rescue poochie - they are so much more grateful for a good home.

Another smashing thread, Empress!
Your tireless work to bring all of us joy is very much appreciated, dear friend.

I do think you should have decorated the moose head from The Saloon and depicted it here, too..:)))
The Ultimate Pet of Another Day.

It was smashing in 1999 when we put on the white mustache and beard and aviator sunglasses and Santa hat and lights on the rack!

Nice dogs!

Love labs, blacks and goldens.

Unfortunately the apt. is too small for them.

Excellent advice lodwick! My dog Lucy went through several owners before me and was on her way to the pound when I rescued her. And she was only 4 months old. She is an awesome dog, we were both so lucky to cross paths that day. I'd love another pup, but not just yet :-)

A sobering story, Mud, but wonderful nonetheless.

It's easy to forget the animal nature when our pets seem so nearly human in their affection and cognition.

Thousands of years of domestication hasn't bred the wild out of them, nor us, for that matter.

But, that's what makes them, and us, so charming...and dangerous, sometimes.

Pippin....go to radio shack and buy a splitter for the phone line. It will work very well! The guys there will set you up with what you need. All the pets are so beautiful!

I love what Billie did with my Keisha! Keisha loves it too! She needs a hat over here in Minnesota!

Mornin' Billie. Thanks for another prize winning thread.

Hope all these pups have got their licenses and shots up to date. The dog catcher is patrolling the streets as we speak.

Uhhh, where's Mr. & Mrs. Billie's pup? Out Christmas shopping for all these critters who have invaded his home? What a great host he is.

Now if I could get my liberal brother-in-law to see the importance of freeping as your neighbors did!

HMMMM! Maybe I should give him something from my top ten list from the other day.......

Everyone should try guest-hosting. I learned first hand how much work our hostesses put into what they do. I have absolutely renewed respect for their gift to all of us.

Thank you so much, Free! That means a LOT to us! For me, the fun part is in doing the layout and presentation, but there first has to be the information to work with! So what YOU did is greatly appreciated, too! You wrote three of the neatest and most fun threads!
