Oh and almost forgot, Texas, Hank is darling! I'll be excited to hear how your agility goes with him! I used to do agility with my Boston Terrier. It was so much fun, and the training that went into the agility really made him an awesome dog.

Hank is looking good. He has certainly fallen on his feet.
I can see a lot of Labrador in him but the shape of his ears and the nose looks a bit like a Dachshunds

As for families when there is a death and something to be 'had' they all come out of the woodwork.

When my maternal grandmother moved in with my parents her large house was a mess. Mum and I cleared it sorting through everything. My uncle accused me of stealing things because I took old bed sheets and blankets that would have gone on the skip, to the dog shelter.

Needless to say, mum did the bulk of the work and was never thanked for it by her brother or sister - neither did a thing to help but wanted what they wanted.

Sis and I kept on to Mum about making a will. I was home and asked her if she had done so - she hadn't so I said I would make an appointment for her to do so.
We were in the sitting room and she asked me if there was anything I particularly wanted. I looked around and said "No!" for that I got a clip around the ear. LOL

I do have both my grandmothers wedding rings, other than that I am not a collector of things unless they have a practical use.

CW you were treated unfairly, but have a good man and daughter and it is the now that counts. When bad things happen we can either climb over them or allow it to rule out lives. So glad it is behind you.

Off to get some work done. The veggie garden is looking good. All is growing well but would do better if there was an appearance of the sun.
Many parts of the SE and Wales are flooded and more rain until the end of June.
So much for the drought.

A quick hi to all, the weather here is causing havock with the internett or she who must be obeyed is hogging the time inbetween rain storms. CW sorry to hear about Belle.
Having to break hard to avoid hitting a motor bike and causing the horse some stress was just bad luck.

Stella had an accident this week slipping when getting out of the trailer and ended up falling injuring a hind leg. She limped for a while getting as much milage out of it as she could. There will be a scar on her leg but that just adds another one to her already marked hide. But that's Stella, well worn.
She stopped limping when Kate was taken out of the paddock for a walk Stella does not like being left behind. Just like a kid, she forgot her pain. Its about to start raining again so the connection will fail soon, its time to take a chainsaw to some of the trees that I have been told are causing inteference with the wifi signal. I should sharpen the wifes chain saw and point her at the task but then I would be called names like lazey so and so. But I am a man and have broad shoulders I can carry that burden. I also believe in equality so why should I stop she who must be obeyed from thinning the trees so I can use the internett more often. Off now to sharpen her saw See you all in a couple of days when the net works better.

CW stay with it, a horse is a better friend than a dog and every one takes notice of someone walking their horse, dogs are a dime a dozen.


And as normal the spelling mistakes belong to me please do not copy.

There are more pics that make him look like a daschund .. lol. I don't post them so much. LOL

Thanks, ya'll. He's a real PITA .. just the way I like them. Busy busy busy ..

The agility training does help with burning energy, maintaining focus, and the relationship between dog and handler.. He watches me all the time now ..

He moves like a rocket ..

For Belle it was a good learning adventure.
I feel sorry for the horse. I hope she gets a loving home
It was not her fault she bucked or my fault

I am going to see another horse next week

Patsy's legs are cold and tight, not one puffy spot. We will let her out in the pasture today and see what we have this evening!!
Oh wow! He does look like Cherokee!
