  • Another post about my goofy dog

    We came home from a doctor visit about 5:30 this evening. My dear wife failed to lock the gate when she came through it. We let Princess (our dog) out in the back yard, not knowing the gate was unlocked. If it's not locked, she pushes against it, then roams around the neighborhood for a short while. I went out to the garage, and noticed the gate wasn't locked. Princess came running around some bushes between our place and the one next door. My very wet neighbor soon followed, and told me that Princess had visited him without him knowing it, and she jumped into his in-ground pool. He just happened to be by the pool, heard a splash, and saw Princess in there. Problem was - he had a pool cover on it at the time. She got wrapped up in it, and he had to pull her out. He was soaked, but not upset. Good neighbors are a precious thing.

    Very true -- for man and dog!

      She is so lucky he was there. Those covers are so dangerous if one falls onto them. They just wrap you up totally.

      That happened to my sister also. She had 2 dogs. One was a small white terrier maybe 10 lbs while the other was a shepard husky mix at some 80 lbs. Well, they just got their new pool and had a cover on it and Daisy (the small dog) casually stroles across the covered pool and never even gets her feet wet. Well, Timber saw that and had no reason to doubt that was anything but solid surface so she goes for a strole too. My sister and her husband both had to jump in and fish a very surprised dog out of the center of the pool totally encased in the cover.

        Hey Bob ... meet Princess!

        Here's the newest addition to our family. She's a German Shephard who belonged to my son and his wife. We all talked about breeding our dogs, but the deal was that we would have to keep her just before she was to give birth until the pups were weaned. We wanted a pup out of our dog because he is the...

        Princess goes to school
        by Ed_L
        I decided to sign Princess (our German Shephard) up for obedience classes. The first one was this morning. She is a lover to people, but she doesn't get along well with other dogs. We were the first to arrive at class, and I grabbed a seat by a desk next to the door. The trainer came in, and we talked...

        Little kids come up with some really funny things. If you have one you'd like to share please do.

        I have a four year old grand daughter, who is small for her age. But she uses words like an adult. She likes to listen to her dad's CDs of Stevie Ray Vaughn. The other day, she was in a store...

        I'm gonna get fired if you don't start posting here .

        What *else* do you do? I dabble a little in woodworking, but I don't do much better at that than I do with restorations . Most of the time I'm around the house, and we get the family together whenever possible. This usually happens...

        One of my daughters, Jean, has a dog which weighs well over 100 lbs., and two cats, one of which is just a very small kitten called Junior. My wife was talking one the phone to Jean, when she heard this awful noise in the house. She asked Jean what that was. She responded "That was Buck (the dog)....
