Heh. I suppose it beats burned paws! Looks like we've got a few more days of this before things cool down a bit. 🔥
Awww, this photo....love it!!!
Wow, 16! Pretty much unheard of. What a gift.I was walking him in the yard the other day and a guy with his family stopped to talk about him. He was also a Doberman owner, had just lost his black and rust boy to old age at 16, which we both agreed was a gift despite their emotional abyss, and he said that Hope had now sold him on wanting a red Dobe. "Beautiful dog," he said, "and you obviously love him."
My man, you get it. ❤
He must have seen my eyes go wide because he immediately said "Yeah. We were lucky. He was great until a week before we had to make the call due to how quickly things turned around."Wow, 16! Pretty much unheard of. What a gift.
Haha, yes! Red did it too. I swear he never had more energy than when powered by the P-Zs, he would come in from the old yard, which was the size of a postage stamp, and tear around the house from room to room and wouldn't stop until every bed was a big unmade shamble. It's completely adorable and the circumstances behind it are hilarious.I've always gotten such a kick out of how they frisk and run, butt all tucked underneath, after a nice big poop. LOL! It's like, "Wow, I just got rid of FIVE POUNDS of crap and I can run like the wind now!" ROFLMAO! I always called it the Poopie-Zoomies. And they ALL do it! All of mine have, anyway, until they get to be a bit too old to frisk like they used to. But they're always happy.
Thanks! It was a realization of a lot of long talks and discussions before finally jumping in. We were pretty happy too, until the first time the neighborhood lost power, at which point we quickly figured out that they had everything wired backwards - All of the non-critical rooms that we specified did not need to be powered were up and running, while the fridges/freezers, office/Internet, etc., were all dark. They had a tech out the next day, but moving everything perishable downstairs to the empty basement fridge so it wouldn't spoil really sucked.Oh, I am distracted and jealous of your solar panels!
