    Meet Rosie

     



    As some of you may remember, I had to have our 13 year old beagle put down last fall. We weren't going to get another dog but I was missing having one too much. We've been keeping an eye on the Humane Society web site but nothing was really calling me. Turns out through a few conversations, I found out that my neighbor 1 1/2 miles away who raises Golden Retrievers and Golden Doodles had a 6 month old female retriever he needed to find a home for. He sold her to a lady for a " comfort & therapy dog " and she spent $3,500 ( yes, I typed that right ) on training but then returned her because she had a crooked paw ( which none of us can see ) and she pee'd too much ( um, she's a puppy ) Any how, it worked out well for us because he really didn't want to advertise her because it can make him look bad so he gave her to us for free! The only stipulation is I have to get her fixed because he doesn't sell competition which is understandable. She is adorable and amazing, she follows us around and doesn't wander off the acreage at all, just like this was always her home, and I forgot how much puppies love to play, I might loose some weight

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    A crooked paw!!?????? You've got to be kidding! How shallow can you get.

    There was a semi-stray cat that hung out around my old shop at my previous house. He got hit by a car and the vet removed one of his rear legs. That was the most loving little 3 legged cat. I can't tell you how many times he curled up on my chest while I was in my recliner and went to sleep. Slept on the foot of my bed when it was cold outside.

    He moved between my house and 2 other neighbors all the time and everybody loved him. I hated to leave him when we moved, but the other neighbors would never have forgiven me. They loved him as much as we did.

    Crooked paw...……..………………….does she tend to run in circles? Sheesh!

    She's a cutey...

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Luck occurs when preparation and opportunity converge.

    Mike, that's the next thing on our list, to get some cats back. The place just seemed weird without a dog and a few cats. We have to get something for Rosie to chase right? LOL.

    I don't know what it is about puppies, maybe it's their innocence that makes you overlook all the stuff they destroy and then pet them with a smile on your face. I've always said that's why God made little animals and kids cute, it's so people don't kill them, I tell my kids that, then I remind them that their not cute anymore LOL.

    Crikey mate, I hear you on that!
    Our kids are in their late forties/early fifties now, and I love them all.


    But sometimes I just don't like them very much...
