Hound Dawg

Well…  I thought I had a photo in Flickr that I don’t, so we’ll revist the topic I seem to have mistakenly tagged a health issue on Sissy’s blog

After the hound owners weighed in, it seems that being a little destructive, particularly where trash is concerned, is no sign of a starving basset.   Gmarie reminded me that Sis is just a teenager, testing her boundaries.  Barbara pointed out that some senior bassets STILL have a thing for trash.  Sissy is proudest of the honorary PWD award Sue and her pack proposed upon reading of Sissy’s path of destruction.   She also appreciates all the advice and support the other dogs have sent her!

The good dog at our house  wee Gretchen Greer is rather concerned about the potential for another BIG SNOW this weekend.  The set-up is very similar to the December storm, although at the time I’m writing, it seems we’ll just dodge the heavy snow line and we’ll get a nice blanket of the white stuff, but not enough to cripple the area again.


Dogs on Thursday, little friday, friday eve as a college girlfriend called it today…  It all adds up to Thankful it is Thursday.  This has been a rather calm week for me, and I’m thankful for that. 

Yesterday, happy post.  Today, thankful.  They’re connected, happiness and thankfulness, but they’re not the same thing.

Vintage photo from around 1990?

Since I just finished lunch with my favorite aunt, there’s my happy photo that makes me so thankful.  It’s not a great photo of either of us, but sadly, it’s the best of the photos of us I have in Flickr!  (See’Nita?  You aren’t the only one I torture…)

Now to finish up at work and go home and download the photo(s) I thought I had to blog about today…

    We’re supposed to get some snow tonight, too. Hope it’s the kind the pups can play in and no -temperatures to go with it.

    Poor Gretchen…she really looks worried about more white stuff taking over her yard. Stay high and dry, Gretch.

    I think that’s a great photo of you! 🙂 Least you don’t have your face all wrinkled up laughing! SNOL

    And i finally remembered to plug Sissy’s blog into my reader so I don’t miss anymore posts…. it’s my brain, it just doesn’t function properly anymore

    Gretchen looks like she is saying “What is all this white stuff and how do we get rid of it?” Such a sweetie!

    Would Gretchen & Sissy consider adopting me? I could use a bit more of their keen senses whether for trash or snow. They are always in tune and never boring. I just want to snuggle up to that “cool” nose of Sissy’s and comfort Gretchen in her hour of snow fear.

    That photo of you and your aunt is the icing on the cake! Thanks for sharing, Channon:)

    Hope y’all are staying warm. It’s been frigid and rainy here, but no ice or snow.

    Tell Sissy to quit gnawing on trash cans and go after the good stuff. Trash! ;-p
