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.
Yep...the best ever, IMHO...MUD
So, my FRiend, what's the official countdown to TwinTowers ecstasy?!
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.
It is Two Towers Day!
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!
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 :-)
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.
I feel like I'm missing a lot of the fun. :^(
I don't know much about dialup connecters.
I won't be on the Dose much this week as I have no internet connection ( I just moved into my new place , but it only has one phone jack in the apartment, GRRRRR!
