So we were talking in another blog about monkeys and humans, and I made a reference to my puppy, and rather than wander off topic in that blog, I thought I would start a new one (and wander off topic here! lol) So here is a blog dedicated to puppy dog stories. I have seen enough references to know atleast a few of you out there can tell a puppy tale too. Pardon the pun. I have a little jumping dog name Raven's Shadow. She will be 12 in August this year. Getting old and a little gray. But her eyes, ears and hips are holding out, and she is doing well. She was the little runt of the litter. The daughter of the woman, who owned the mother dog, took a liking to her and carried her around like a doll. It was the only pup in the litter that came in the house. I worked with the mother's owner and she had said that she thought I should get the pup. I left Babygirl to be raised by her mom for 10 weeks. I find it a shame that so many pups are taken from their mother and litter mates too early. These first few weeks is the only time that the mother gets to teach them social skills and such. Many behavior problems can arise if "their momma didn't teach them right", much like humans! LOL So anyways, Raven loves to go find little children to play with. She has two Name tags on her collar. One has my numbers here in GA, and another collar for when we visit my father in east TN (yes, she has gone walkabout up there too.). She has been too the local animal control 3 times now. Twice with the broken 15' lead still attached. BTW, Animal Control personnel doesn't find it amusing when they give you a ticket for "lack of restraint" and you remark "but it seems like she had it with her"... She was gone once for two weeks. I had signs up all over, been to animal control every 3 days to check, etc. So after having finally given her up as gone, one evening she came wandering in about half an hour past dusk. She was sporting a brand new pink collar. I guess she figured she didn't have it any better there than she did at my house so she came home! I just wish she had come home sporting that $75 radio fence collar! But about a decade ago, I finally decided to leave it in God's hands. She has been out enough, she is very street savy. She is a friendly dog, loves everyone, so no fear of her biting anyone. About every 6-8 months, I can expect a call at work. I normally ask "Do you have a daughter aged 7-10?" and they say "Yes, how did you know that?". Queenie, yes, I hate to admit the several times I have whistled out the back door and saw her come running across the hill and leap the fence like a gazelle and then come walking up like she was around the corner the whole time, she was quite beautiful. Thought about the 6' fence till she started jumping the one at the house of the woman I was dating at the time. We did reach a compromise though. About 3 years ago, I started leaving the gate to the backyard open at the carport. Before her wandering dog friends don't have to jump in the fence, and she doesn't have to jump over it to exchange greetings. Much less wear and tear on the lead/run cable. And I don't come home to strange frightened male dogs in the backyard.

You haven't lived until you take Izabel through a customs check point when they are using their working dogs. Happens a lot when I drive to San Diego. Tends to get me through rather quickly...LOL.

lol Had a dog named Stupid... cause we were always saying that dog is really stupid.. He would skinny up a tree chasing squirrels and then hang up there howling because he didn't know how to get down... till he turned loose and fell crashing to the ground and you think he would learn .. Nope... He loved being tossed into the deep end of the pond.. He would beg to be tossed and he would be under for the longest amount of time and then surface clear on the far side of the pond happy as a lark .. When it was time to wake me, he would be let in and come crashing through the house.. come to a dead stop at my bed lay his chin on the bed and stare at me. When I opened my eyes he would start bouncing around like a rubber ball... He was a Heinz 57 mutt some one had dropped along the side of the road as a tiny baby,felt sorry for him picked him up and had lots of laughs out of his silliness.. Don't think he realized he was a dog.. He tried to be all the other animals on the farm.. lol

WHAT? Puppy tails are only allowed here? Hmmmm. I better be careful or I will get deleted from this blog... I have not had a dog for years, even though I have trained a few. (Not talking men here) I always had dobermans. Now that I am not traveling as much as I was, I thought of getting another doby. That was last week. Which brings to mind other thoughts. We know that a man dog is known for chasing and trying to mate with any woman (or as many as possible) that will pay attention to him. Of course, this same man is often called a lying dog. On the other side, women who are called dogs, are often judged on their looks, Or simply called the dog term of bit.h. Where did these ideas come from? As you can see, Rob, I am trying to stay on topic. Today I am going to pick out a new family member. I will need to start a new blog as those thoughts are not allowed here. Oh, speaking of those unmentionables. Does this mean that Kitt..for you is not allowed to post on this blog? This is a dog jumping a pole. Can you imagine taking care of the hair on this one?

People may not remember what you say or do, but they will remember how you made them feel.
