'once in a while the falling of his shadow'
A beautiful retriever.
He's just over a year old and is settled and happy in his new home.
Oh to be a dog and never have to ask oneself questions like this.
Your Tess knows all the answers!
What a gorgeous dog, just my cup of Tea. I often wonder what animals think about their lives. There are several horses in fields in front of our house. They hardly ever see anyone, are never ridden, and love it when I have a chat with them or give them apples. They must really wonder what life's all about (well, I presume they do).
He's a griffon crossed with no one knows what. He can run very fast and likes to show off. He's friendly with every dog and person he meets. When those horses see you coming with your apples they must think it's Christmas.
I can see the friendliness in his eyes.
He was nervous for a week or two but soon settled in. He won't go in outside kennel though. Perhaps it reminds him of his former life where he had it a bit rough.
Also he probably recognises a softie when he sees one.
He is my brother's dog. Well, he's a softy too.
gee hawand with those leadsI'll take us for a runbut when we cross that bunny trailhang onWhat the dogs -might- have said.__ I say very little about things of my past. Then, and now, some would think me cruel, but just to shake a harness in any one of their faces and they'd all go loonie. One could fully see and know their excitement, from the leader to the swing/point, to the team and wheel dogs. I was in my twenties then, 55 plus years ago, and raced my dog sleds in New England, New York State, and Pennsylvania. A lack of notable successes... except for the joy of my dogs, and of mine. _m
Would! That must have been exciting. I've watched fascinating documentaries about the husky race through Alaska. But the real thing in those challenging elements. Terrific. Thanks for sharing.
Ah yes, The Iditarod, 'bout a thousand miles! __ Here, the races were MUCH less, a couple hours long... not a week or two. If we finished well I'd say, I did it rod. ;<)
It's how we play the game that counts. It is a good motto. Thanks Magyar!
