Kenny over at Knuckledraggin lost another dog. Lucy was old and not well. Doesn't matter. Just because you know something like this is coming, it doesn't make the pain any less severe. Not long ago he lost Charlie. Both times his loss hit me in the guts. It got real dusty in here reading about … Continue reading A tragic loss, and Jasper update
Last night wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. After closing the computer down, I took off the boy's lampshade and laid down with him on the couch. He had a good two hours sleep, until he had enough and went into his crate. So I had to re-install his lampshade. He slept … Continue reading Jasper Update
This is the boy's new thing: https://vimeo.com/593051565 He's getting mouthy. This is Jasper's new thing. As it happens, I figured out, by simple observation, that he wants to either come into my office, or have Aria play with him. I think it's more that he wants to hang at my feet. But girlfriend will bite … Continue reading Just another day….
Every night, when it's time for the pups to go to bed, we simply say their name and "Night Night". The two older dogs simply walk into their cages. Jasper usually does as well. But every now and then, He pauses to make sure. Maybe, I'll change my mind... https://vimeo.com/591330472 Time for Bed
Every morning the boys tell me it's time to walk. Girlfriend (Aria) is usually in the sunroom on a vigil for squirrels. I have to coax her to walk. Eventually, I give in and take them out. Any why not? It buys me 8 hours of them loafing and leaving me to work. https://player.vimeo.com/video/583589445?badge=0&autopause=0&player_id=0&app_id=58479 Let's … Continue reading It Never Ends
I was watching a flick on Amazon and noticed the big guy gripped by the actions. FWIW, the movie is called 'Memorial Day' and it features James Cromwell - who has been in tons of movies and TV, usually as a character actor, or bad guy. Here, he's the grandfather that was in WW2 that … Continue reading Jet watches TV
I have a persimmon tree in my back yard. It was here when I bought the place. It grows like a weed and you need to cut it back every year. I don't always. This year I cut it back severely. Last fall I had persimmons 30 feet up that I couldn't get to. So … Continue reading Get the Squirrel!
Last post I alluded to what happens when the dudes realize there's someone they don't want on the property. So here's what happened. I came down the alley, and there was this slob that looked like Eminem hanging around on his mobile at my neighbors garage. There was another dude, his friend apparently, sitting on … Continue reading Run Forrest!
So do I. It's why I installed a camera system. In addition to Ring, I have an actual video camera system. Two, as a matter of fact. One Wyze, that has 3 cameras where I can see what the dogs are up to if I'm not here. I use it primarily to check if the … Continue reading Jethro Hates Solicitors
Found this on a dog bed yesterday. Wut? That isn't my shootin' can. That's what happens when a large shepherd mix fishes an empty can out of the recycling and goes to town. I'm in a quandary about who it was. The big dude, Jethro, is about the only one that can deftly reach into … Continue reading Shootin’ Can?
