Can't wait for photos! So, Beau, I saw your front yard you are working on, but I thought you had livestock too, with an inner backyard.

FYI - Beau family explained:
Our family is Kelly, Mom & Dad (at home)...zero livestock here, but feed birds & a chipmunk daily.
- property is 1.1 acres, and always something to improve on...but house has good bones
Son next town over, with little Trevor / aka Mr. T a YorkiePoo.
Trevor's litter mate sister Molly and owned by sons business partner / she is family to.
- they all like dads BBQ's & mom cooks like a chef
- that is the true treasure in life, the connection & enjoyment of the younger generation
- plus we all get along, like best friends / always have-always will

^^ Funny thing - people that work with the wife, says he looks like her.
And my co-workers saw facial features of me, in him...got the best of both worlds.....dads dimples !!

Thks PT - I knew you'd understand (so I filled in the blanks) & I respect what your young man has achieved, as well.
- equally mom & dad invested our Life values & knowledge in him...sound familiar, yep
- son was a real fun journey (growing up), and he still enjoys visiting us (as an adult)...that says a lot
- 7 years ago, the 2 started company up (from scratch) and growing 40-50% every year
- both had the natural entrepreneurial spirit & creative vision, so joining forces in self employment was a very good fit

Many of my old stories, growing up on the farm...was back in the 60's-70 time frame.
- I probably caused some confusion, going so far back in time...but we on same page now.

Post #1451 photo, is side of house...work in progress, from today.

I donít think another doberman--our yard is not fenced and it is getting very hard to find anywhere around here where you can let your dog run free (dog parks are OUT). I just donít feel that you can give a dobe a good life if theyíre always on the end of a leash.

Another dog......I donít know. My two needed so much nursing and special treatment this last year--I slept on the floor (memory foam pad) for 6 months last year taking care of Capri (and I spent a LOT of money on vet bills.) I need a break from animal care for a bit.

So right now in our household, my daughter has a cat (her total responsibility) and my son has 3 ferrets (his responsibility).

Iím taking some time out.

At least thatís my story now. Who knows about the future?



I actually rather like well-bred Chinese Cresteds, both hairless or powder puff--small, generally fit looking, relatively low exercise needs, fairly intelligent, velcro dogs but aloof with strangers......

I think you either like them or hate them though.

And about hiccups (jump-shift).....hold your nose, do a few really exaggerated swallows (mouth closed)--usually gets rid of them fairly well.

Halloween costumes? My kids too are past that stage--28 and 32.

Iím an ancient.

Dimples are totally dominant! So your son's kids will have them too! I think dimples are wonderful! I wonder why dimples haven't taken over the World yet!

Melbrod, I felt the same way after my vWD pup, I never wanted to deal with it again. It was so heart breaking. hang in there.
Do you know any Chinese Cresteds?
Doxies are velcro dogs too. After having one, I understand why they were bred- but the birth defects of dwarf legs is too cruel. They can't rub their own faces, scratch, hold a bone, paw at a ball ( because they can't see it if it's close enough to paw), etc.

I’ve known several doxies with back troubles. And I generally like dogs that are evenly proportioned--head, neck, body length, leg length--too much in any one direction just looks uncomfortable to me (squashed nose, bulgy eyes, big head, extra long bodied, short legged, bowed legs....).

I like the sighthound look, but wouldn’t want to deal with the prey drive. Terrier personalities are a little too....brash for me. A lot of hounds seem more interested in exploring their surroundings than spending time with their people. I don’t like goldens--they just seem too cookie cutter to me--at least, it feels like if you’ve met one, you’ve met them all. I like dogs with individual personalities, and dogs that by far prefer their families to those that just LOVE everyone.

I have know a few people who have, or have had cresteds, with their opinions (good things and bad things) about the breed but not really been around one very much.

And of course, descriptions I’ve read of temperament, exercise needs, coat care, skin care, personality matches what I’m looking for more than any most other dog breeds I can find--I’d like a small, trim and well-balanced look, velcro, reasonably intelligent dog, with fairly low exercise needs and not too much prey drive. Average length walks at a reasonable person speed, and inside the house play is about enough exercise. They seem to have that quirky sense of humor too (zoomies, bounces and all)...or maybe they’re just funny to look at.

Not too fond of cleft chins though. Hope I don’t offend if any of you are in that category. Anyway, looks aren’t everything Stream of consciousness thinking/talking are quite fun. And we all seem to be rather in that group.

No cleft chin here, but I've always liked my dimples.
- glad they transferred, didn't know it was a stronger genetic trait
Fred MacMurray (My Three Sons) did well with a pronounced chin, but I can do without.

Son got his moms nice sandy blonde straight hair (mine was more curly & darker) & her straight teeth.
Dad contributed the strong jaw line, dimples and chubbier cheeks, with that infectious sense of humor laugh.
- Tuesday I went to dentist, for cleaning
- lady (Eva) didn't know our adult son, was also a client of hers
- she was cleaning his teeth, few years ago & chatting it up / making good conversation
- the more they they talked, Eva couldn't help but remember this dad
- when son talked about heading over to mom & dads place, later in day for a BBQ, Eva asked the question
- she said, is your Dads name Larry?
- she couldn't get over his exact mannerisms & fun loving laugh, giggle / both the same

Son stands 6 ft. tall and much taller than his parents.
As a teen, he was more into lifting weights & had some good bulk...into Yoga now.
Dad much shorter and caring those extra middle pounds..."people would ask me if I was his manager/$$ backer"?
- when he played top level men's billiards
- I'd say...No & with a big smirk:
- can't you see the resemblance?...we are Twins
- he is Arnold Schwarzenegger & I'm Danny Devito......I got a lot of mileage, off that 1 liner

Okay, I feel the need to rein this/my thread in...

I am down to 26 chickens. Coyote out there every morning, waiting for chicken dinner. The remaining girls and Rocky have not been able to free range in two days.

Thinking about getting a free donkey to kick the coyote's, rear end.

Tending my horse and his boarder's horses next weekend and picking up my panels to accomodate a donkey and eventually bring my horse home.

And, I filled out two adoption applications for a rescue Dobe.

I have found three boys that look and sound appealing.

Bixby Doberman Group has a red boy named Dobie, he's five. Diesel, he's two, and a 2 year old from Kansas City named Ronnie.

What is a girl to do?

And, I have a barn kitten coming this weekend, if it will stop raining.

Haven't been able to kiss my mower for about a week now, due to work schedule, and now rain.

Such drama around here!

Sounds like them eggs may end up costing quite a bit per dozen, when you take into account the overhead.

SP - welcome back Cotter.
^^ Had to make some "Cliff Notes", so I could stop to breath, while I was reading the changing subject lines.
- if your gonna stay away all evening, we ain't talking about your 26 chickens (all night)
- you got any remedy for hiccups ? ...NO, I didn't think so
- bc its all about me...

SP - missing in action tonight / maybe at work.
- she gave us her shift hours, but failed to say am or pm...LOL...typical haha

But Beau continued on with landscaping (weed barrier cloth down & added red hardwood mulch).
- and picked up another 1/4 yard of mulch & purchased a 300# accent rock today

Similar to MEL, our next girl may not be a Doberman / probably a Miniature Schnauzers instead.
- our former Amy was so easy, in our lives, such a mild tempermant
- on the other hand, Kelly soon to be 5 y/o...but prey drive, off the map / since puppy
- its a real test of patience, driving through town with her loud car barking & teeth snapping
- she pulls like a leached freight train, when she get on full alert...so very strong
- another one like her, just too much to handle / when our body grows old & get weaker
- and in retirement, we want to travel more...so a Mini Schnauzer (little watch dog buddy) may be better, as we age
- always loved their looks / a Terrier, and bigger version of Mr-T-Man Trevor (sons dog, that we adore)

BUT - Beau will still be on the Chicken Thread...chatting with good-long time friends.
- have no fear, Doberman gang...not getting rid of me, that easy !!

I was working. But, not at work!

Should have heard me talking to myself as I was shutting my driveway gate. "See how easy it is to get out of a truck and shut the gate? See how easy it is to idle on my property to shut the gate? See how easy it is to park and unload my groceries (and kitty supplies)? See how easy it it to put my truck under the port? See how easy it is to go in my house and not look at you, stupid neighbors?"

This feels like going to work. "but, it needs to have push button start".

Where is the cry baby icon?

Okay, I feel better now. Right now!

Oh, and I love Schnauzers.

However, too much maintenance.

Schnauzers were my Grandpa's breed of choice. Heidi and Dude needed to go to town 25 miles away for their beauty treatments once a month. Heidi came home with a bow and painted toenails. Dude came home simply cleaned and clipped.

Not THAT hard to clip if you do it yourself, however. I mean, it’s mostly just body and neck--you don’t have to do the muzzle. Keep them combed--especially their armpits (folks always forget that and dogs' pits mat like crazy). Start them on the grooming table from day one, so they’re not squiggly adults when it’s trimming time. And make sure to leave the “eyebrows” as long as you can for the proper Schnauzer look.

At least you HAD to do those things. I mean, otherwise you wouldnít get home out of the rain.

Now me, Iíve been doing the same thing--it would be easy to go grocery shopping/cook/pull weeds/clean ferret litter--see? Easy-peasey. But I had the luxury of sitting and not doing anything. So I did.

Grandpa chose to take Grandma out to lunch, while Heidi and Dude were getting all pretty, once a month. That was their thing.

Can't ask them about that choice until I meet them again.

I choose to have a short coated, easy keeper kind of dog.

Washed Princess Lily Belle today and the washer is clogged with her hair.

Me no get how a little dog has so much hair!

Or you can hand strip a schnauzer to get that more wiry coat--but that does take work and some skill--for a pet owner doing it themselves, seems like a lot of people are satisfied with clipping--for a pet, it works just about as well. Youíll just have a softer coat because the guard hairs are mixed with the more wooly undercoat.
