Morning all,

Rainy here, starting to feel autumnal.

Lyn, sorry about the hound buddy. Hopefully he's happy hunting somewhere.

Scrummy

I got some good news from a friend of mine. His wife just had a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction, and the mass that they removed was not cancerous.
The bad news was we had to put one of our dogs down today, and I just finished burying him. He was 14 years old and having seizures, and it was his time, but we always hate to see them go. We put him next to the cat that we lost a few months ago. They were best buds and played together when they were able. The house and routine is just going to be different from now on.
Maybe Mrs.BF and I can put a little stress behind us for a while.


That is always a real tough job Lynn. I feel your pain.

From his stated age I'm thinking he was Mrs. BF's lap warmer.  Either way he was a loved family member and will be missed,  Condolences to both of you...

Mornin gents.

A little sore, and somber this AM, but otherwise OK. Mrs. BF is going shoe shopping today just to get out of the house for a little while; something she rarely does so I know she's upset. That or she's got an excuse to hurt the credit card.
Breakfast was a little tough for me this morning because there is a little treat ritual that was named after Barkly that I do with all the dogs, and he wasn't there.
Mrs. BF ordered his headstone yesterday, and we always add a nickname after their name and dates of all the kids that we've buried. Barkly was a Shetland sheepdog and I always called him Little Big Mouth, but that wouldn't fit on the stone. Mrs.BF said we should make it what we say almost every time we say his name, so his headstone will read "Barkly 2004-2018 Shut Up!".
If you haven't guessed, Barkly lived up to his name and would bark at spider farts; very annoying at times, okay, most all the time.
He was very loyal though and stayed by Mrs. BF's side almost all the time. When the 2 Shepherds were playing and knocked Mrs.BF down and broke her knee, Barkly was the only one that stayed with her until I showed up. She never forgot that. It's also why she carries a big walking stick when walking the dogs now.
Barkly was a creature of habit and our daily routine was dictated by most of them and they usually revolved around a meal time. The little sucker lived for food. If a piece of food was dropped on the floor, all you had to say was, "FOOD ON THE FLOOR" and it was cleaned up in less than a minute.
This goes back a bit when Tracer and Travis were alive; both were Shepherds and rather large. I was walking the dogs when Travis caught a baby rabbit. I told Travis to drop it, and he did ( I was proud of him for obeying me). As soon as it hit the ground Tracer grabbed it. Took a little more yelling than Travis to get her to drop it, but she did after a chomp or two. When it hit the ground Barkly grabbed it and swallowed it before I could open my mouth. Then he walked away as if to say "That's how you eat a rabbit". I was amazed.
I'm going to miss that little turd.

Mornin gents.

Clear skies, temps are comfortable, humidity is OK. Why am I at work?

Before we had Barkly we had another Sheltie named Jasper. Jasper came to us from another owner who was moving out of the Country and couldn't take him with her. Jasper came from a long line of show dogs and his conformation was perfect except for one thing, he was to big. He was the size of a Boarder Collie and way to big to show. Mrs. BF had always wanted a Sheltie so she jumped on the opportunity to take him in, and the previous owner knew he was going to a good home.
After a few weeks of adjustment Jasper fell in love with Mrs.BF, but only tolerated me for about a year before he decided I was OK. I don't know if the fact that his former owner was a lesbian had anything to do with that or not.
For a long time Jasper got walked 3 times a day, and sense we lived in Old Loonyville at the time, he got walked on a leash. Jasper was also a blue merle (grey, white, and black in color) which is an unusual color for Shelties. It was not unusual for people walking or driving down the street to ask all kinds of questions about Jasper, and then comment how beautiful he was. Now Jasper being from a show dog line would then wave his head like a model, strike a pose, and would start a model walk like he was Fabieo the model. We called it his Fabieo pose.
Now like a model, Jasper had quirks. He would not go out if it was raining, not matter how bad he had to pee, etc., and would walk around a puddle no matter how large or small it was. He was one of the prissiest dogs I ever saw.
I could tell a lot of stories about Jasper, but the main thing was that Jasper loved Mrs. BF and she loved him. When we lost Jasper Mrs.BF was heart broke so bad that she thought another Sheltie would be just like Jasper, so we wound up getting Barkly as a puppy.
When Barkly got large enough to go for walks with us (we were already living at our present location) I wondered if Barkly was going to be a Fabieo or a dog. I took him for a walk with Tracer and Travis after a big rain so there were lots of muddy puddles. We came up to a puddle that Barkly could have gone around, but the Shepherds just trotted right through it and Barkly followed them like the puddle wasn't there. I said Barkly is a dog and I'm going to like him. It was just funny to watch him walk when his tail was up; with all the fur on his butt and legs, he looked like he was wearing pantylooms, or bloomers. Just didn't fit him.

Your thinking of the Corgi. A Sheltie (Shetland Sheepdog) is also known as the miniature Collie.

Ah, a Corgi, right!  Wierd dogs they are!

I like Sheltie's except for all the hair!  Your comments on the dogs rear pantylooms makes more sense now... LOL

Well, I fell asleep on the sofa again last night after gorging on some Maryland steamed crabs... EmbarrassedTongueOuch
I woke up about 3am wanting more crabs....Smile.

Crawled into one side of the bed and out the other and into the shower...  Even the long soak didn;t wash away the cobwebs.... Dead

Setting here at work, sucking down tar grade Joe and trying to blink away the gummies....Confused

THANK GOD ITS FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 That and I have a bunch more crabs to devour after work..... Big smile

Weather is also much better than I hoped for too!!!
