Well keep your fingers crossed. Today is the FG’s first day at the dog show. I must confess, I am just a little bit jealous. I mean not only does he get to go to the show, he even got to go to a restaurant the other night.
Well after much moaning and groaning and the occasional gasp, my human threw her profile into the on-line dating shopping catalogue. And after three days, she has already decided she is canceling her subscription at the end of one month. She’s just not a very patient person.,.
Heaven help us. Well…help the FG. Rumor has it he is entered in a dog show his weekend. Actually, a couple of shows. And when was the last time he was in a show? Was it February? Needless to say, he and my human are not well prepared. So they needed some help. So who ya gonna call when you are in desperate need of some show handling tips? Besides the patron saint of dogs? Why you call Glady. Glady the dog whisperer.
August 27. And according to the crazy calendar, it is Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. Honestly, for humans who have been owned by dogs… that is every single day… you never forget those you have lost.
August 27. And on this day in 1955, the Guinness Book of World Records was published. And as you might imagine, there are many dog related records. You can have the typical tallest and smallest dog:
And while we MAY drive you crazy at times, we know that once your heart is owned by a dog, you have experienced a magical connection that will exist – even long after we are gone. How very lucky you are…and so are we….
August 25. And on this day in 1981, some guy by the name of Jeff Schwartz set a solo record for trampoline bouncing. – for 266 hours and 9 minutes. Yup. Over 10 days. I don’t think anyone has broken his record. Wonder why? Because he couldn’t feel his feet when he was done? I’m not joking. Other people have broken records for height and somersaults on a trampoline – but it seems Jeff did it the longest.
Well there was drama in the area. The day before yesterday, my human got a message on Facebook asking her if she knew a dog who had been posted on the Lost Dog Network. My human looked, and her heart sank. It was Willow. For those who don’t remember, Willow is a Picard who ran away a few months ago, just a week after she moved to Nova Scotia. She got spooked by something – and was gone. My human went on a couple of searches and even took Elroy one day. Willow was safely found after being gone for 4 days.
My human did something she can’t BELIEVE she has never done before. Actually, she’s a bit embarrassed to even admit this, but we share everything – so why not tell you how behind the times she is. Oh and then I might as well tell you about a little accident with the FG. But not to worry – he is FINE. He has a bald spot – but he’s fine…
