Re: Oakley goes to day care

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJn5ymO_7gE Oakley made his debut at day care yesterday. The staff fell in love with him...and according to his report card, so did Stella Mae, Tessie and Molly.... :shock: The point of [dog guardianship] is to open oneself to becoming partly a dog...Edward Hoagland W...

Re: Dave

If I have my date correct, I believe today is the second anniversary of Dave's passing. Seems like it was just yesterday. We love you, Dave. I'll say a prayer for you.

Re: Lola does not smell like skunk - yippee

I walked around the corner of our house this morning and there was Lola standing about 10 feet away from a skunk. I called her and she came running to me and we both ran back into the house. I know I have successfully called her off a skunk before but I still get a thrill that she did what she was ...

Re: Holly - the PERFECT Overnight Guest

We picked up Holly last night about 10 PM from the P.E.T.S. transport and she settled right in. She's going to a foster home in Richmond and the foster family will be here soon to pick her up. Probably just as well because she totally fit in to our household. She spent about 15 minutes going room t...

Re: Speaking of Naughty Stories about Bratty Brittanies

Um, Daisy got loose at my parents house and started her own game of catch me if you can. I was good and I called out her emergency reliable recall and she comes running towards me full blast - so I think good - she's headed this way, we're okay...NOPE that little Stinker got about 3 feet from me an...

Re: Another pup-date (new pics added)

Sigh - when will I learn? On Thursday night, I taught Charm to ring a desk bell...my intention was to teach her to ring the bell, and then have her ring it to go outside to potty, rather than scratching at the door as she had been doing. With her little feet and tiny nails, I don't always hear her ...

Re: Scout's Week (with picture) - UPDATE

It has been an interesting week at our house. Scout had ear surgery on Monday. Trapper began pointing Scout and fixating on him so we must keep a close eye on the boys and not leave them alone. We also need to be sure that CharLee does not jump on Scout in her youthful exuberance. Kallie is too bus...

Re: when will I ever learn?

Picked up a small bag of cat food yesterday evening, but didn't take time to put it away-left it by the kitchen door. DH and I went away for a while this morning. Came home, and the first thing I noticed is the bag of food was missing. Hmmm...and only one dog came running out to greet us. Went to t...

Re: Wow, some people have nerve

Lola and I were walking in our neighbourhood. Some people who live nearby have either made or purchased some official looking road signs that say "Please slow down, dog in road". HaHaHa. Well, it may be easier to train drivers to slow down than to train some dogs. I should ask where they got them. ...

Re: SKUNKS!!

We have a pile of scrap wood from building our current house in a far corner of the yard. I was out with Oakley a few mornings ago. A mama and two baby skunks sat on top of the pile. :shock: Very calmly and slowly, I told Oakley "leave it" and backed up with him. He left them alone. I gave thanks t...

Re: Nature vs. Brittany

Victor sped out of the house this morning and into his fenced yard. I looked up as usual to see what he was running at that is usually on the other side of the fence - but no dog in sight. I hustled out onto the deck only to hear Victor growling and another something growling and sounds of a scuffl...

Re: Bread dough...

I know Buckley is a food thief and I'm usually pretty careful about leaving food on counters but today the baking bug bit me and I decided to bake up some mini loaves of french bread on the grill (to avo...
