We is Stoopid......

What could possibly be worse than having a 10 week old 27 pound puppy?

Puppy-sitting his brother.

 
 
They's cute when they are asleep. However when awake they are a pair of bulldozers, fighting over the same toy most of the time. Very entertaining but our nerves are a bit stretched. Kisses are an abundant resource though, as if they were in short supply before.

I saved a newspaper for swats when they pee on the floor, it got shredded all over the kitchen before I could even use it.

When they get out of hand the Brat Terrible charges in, growling and snapping and they straighten right up.  She's 10 pounds lighter and a lot smaller but she doesn't let that slow her down.

KayLeeBob stays out of it and only gets snarly when they get to close. I don't think anything bothers that dog.

Never again,, till the next time.........

Long Road Trip.



Not a big Eagles fan but since we drove thru Winslow AZ a few days ago I figured it was a good fit.

More on the road trip in a day or two.

21 Years Ago,

I became one of the luckiest guys on the planet when Da Good Squaw married me.

Sometimes it seems like yesterday but then I get up and move around the snap, crackle and pop of worn joints and ligaments remind me it was a long time ago.

We've had our up and downs but are still standing together and smiling.

The Honeymoon song:


That song was a hit around the time we got hitched and on the drive during our Honeymoon that song was all over the radio stations. It seemed like it would get played on a station, soon after we would have to change stations it would be played on the new station, lather/rinse/repeat for the entire weekend.


But I would walk five hundred miles
And I would walk five hundred more
Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles
To fall down at your door

Yep I think I've accomplished that chorus. Happy she feels the same for me.

Puppeh Chow!

Last night after I got home from the shop and after a nap I wanted something sweet to munch on so I grabbed the Reeces cereal. Was munching away on it dry and I showed a piece to Jayne and he sniffed it and actually ate it!

This is the first thing he's eaten since Thursday (4 days) and he didn't puke it back up.

Since then he has been eating his puppy chow and just about anything else we've tried. Not eating a whole bunch but he is eating!

Knock on wood, we may be past the scary part of Parvo!!

Parvovirus

Jayne has it and it sucks.

We are treating it as well as we can, he is drinking and not dehydrated but he hasn't eaten much of anything since Friday and it shows.

What a bunch of shit.

Video of the week is some Jefferson Airplane with a song that always chokes me up.

 
 
Hope your week is better than mine.

And the Adventure Begins!

Today was the day to bring home Jayne!

Couple a snarly's with the girls but nothing major. Boundaries need to be set and all that.

2 months old, just under 20 pounds. Already the biggest dog in the house. Biggest klutz as well. Good thing he's got small ears or he'd be tripping on those.

He has a problem holding his licker, kisses are sloppy and abundant.

 
Compare that pic with this one from 3 weeks ago,
 
 



I think he's gonna be a big dog.

Handsome feller even with his ear inside out.


 
Potty training has begun and he works pretty good on a leash especially since this afternoon was the first time with a collar and a leash. Everything is new for him leashes, walks, free run of the house while we are awake, crate training will start this evening.
 
Wish us luck!
 
Oh yeah,, obligatory hat pic....
