My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Man's best no "Girlie Dog"

Today I am thankful for our dog.  Isn't he adorable? He's a Cock~ a ~poo .  A Cocker Spaniel ~Toy poodle breed. . He was a gift for my husband 5 years ago.. and at the time My best gift idea was not as well received as I had hoped. You see he was a fluffy puppy, * 6 weeks old)* that resembled a "girlie slipper".
 Now  my husband is not a by any count a  Macho Man,   he just couldn't see himself walking around with a "girlie" dog.. He was  wanting a rough & tough, "man's  best friend kind of a dog".  One that he could pick up toss  in his truck and off they would go.... He wasn't really  happy  that he had to be the one to  "house train " him and to teach  him other commands.. A few he is still learning.... Like the  "Come,  Now!.. not when you get ready" ( he has a mind of his own for sure) but let me assure you today this "girlie" dog would rather sit with his Master, ride in the truck with his master, and walk with his master than he would with me. ( Except on those rare occasions when he get left behind with me.) He chases the chickens off the porch and if they are eating leftover scraps and compost  in the garden he wants his share too. He is picky about Dog treats ..strange as that sounds.  He knows which drive though services had  out the best ones...the bank & gas station to name a couple...and best of all...
He loves to roll in all those "Nasty" things, you know the stuff...deer pooh, cow pies and road apples , dead fish, &   any road kill  he can find.. He fortunately doesn't mind taking  the frequent baths that follows his adventures... and He really
 Loves  his "master" and his Master Loves him and would be heartbroken as would  I if anything ever happened to him.. So we allow him to pretty much rule the house and yeah he sleeps at the foot of our bed too... (mostly at my feet) So I am thankful he's a little "girlie" dog. Do you have a Man's or Woman's best friend?

He's a real cutie. My dogs seem to be my shadows but love their Daddy as well.

Goodness,I tried to leave a comment last night but it just disappeared somewhere in blog land. Jazi is such a girlie girl and follows me everywhere. That is until my son from Bend comes over. He wasn't even living home when I got her from the pound. Crazy dog! Hope you are having a great day! hugs!
