Whose Dog?



For those new to the story, Charlie (left) was a Christmas present to Mrs. T from her children in 2009. A rule was soon established stating that if it were dark, cold, inclement or inconvenient,I was allowed active participation in outdoor puppy training. I spent a lot of time outside that winter, and for my effort Mrs. T's dog Charlie is now my shadow.

Pooh (right) was an old woman's dog, accustomed to the pace and activity of an older woman's household. Not for a minute do I place Mrs. T in that category, but she is recuperating, and to the untrained unfair comparisons may be made. Pooh hasn't yet left her side.

Currently, it's snowing hard and the ancient incantation is already stirring, "if it's dark, cold, inclement...."

Just wondering, can a man/does a man need 2 four legged shadows?

My experience has been that two dogs are better than one...some breeds excepted. And Bless you also, Toad.

Everyone is beginning to settle in. Ted is ignoring everyone, the Lions are giving each other plenty of space while they establish their new roles. Pooh is definitely Mrs. T's. I can tell, because I'm outside a lot.

Oh, no, it's most becoming! I thought your silver locks looked so very like those of the pair of Shih Tzu in your lap, I could just see Mrs. T setting up a like-master/like-doggie photo op, waiting for your groupies to notice.

I hate to say it, but you're skirting the line between "trad god" and "emo kid" with the hair there, Toad.
