Bachelors

Taking a codger break to get our bearings.
Home Bud, find the way home!
Home? What's home? Now where'd I put that?
If we can hang on until Sunday evening when Lorna returns from her latest West Coast adventure, Bud and I will again prove that two old dogs can survive for a few days with neither a car for transportation nor a woman for guidance. It's been rough and rocky traveling, but I think we're over the hump and it should be a downhill run now. Bud has been generally worthless. Lassie he ain't. He's blind, deaf, stupid and he has no thumbs. I have to say, he has not pulled his weight through this, neither in leaf removal, house cleaning, nor food preparation. But what he can do - wagging, woofing, eating and sun napping, he does well, and with good humor. Overall he's been good company, during this, our time in the domestic wilderness.

This was great! Had my first BIG laugh of the day. It "almost" makes me want a dog, the kind that wags, woofs, naps and has good humor. But, I think I'll stick to my fur babies, they can poop without me having to be home..

The trouble with a kitten is that when it grows up, it's always a cat.

How can you judge? You haven't been stuck in the Old mine yet.

I have one of these weekends coming up. I'm lucky in that I only seem to get my guys alone for long weekends... at the end, they're just as tired of me as I am of them. And yes, they don't help much either. Three days seem to be about our limit!

He's a pug, what can you expect? Too bad he can't meet Sonia, my not-so-smart puglet. :)
