Freddy, I know what you mean about that barnyard hanky panky, my eldest dog Taroe was going to get drowned because she came from a Shar Pei, the only black dog without the wrinkles & looking like either a Rott or Shepard. Anyway she's 14 now & showing her age, my daughter rescued her & I ended up with her she's been a great dog & I ain't looking forward to "that" day but know it's coming. Maybe that's why she brought that stray home with her last spring.

Hey I could go for a bagel. I never had a dog, we were too poor to have a dog but I did have a picture of a dog. I prefer other people's dogs, all the enjoyment with none of the responsibilities. :)

Glad I got the old Sears rigged up. It did a faster and more enjoyable job this morning! Probably not more than 4" here.


I have a few bricks in the coal stove firebox and that has worked out very well. Nice to be worried about how to keep the place cool enough in the winter! I took a pallet of bricks off the side of the road by a new development a few years ago, they are taupe colored and 3x3x9. I think they might be firebricks, but no matter, they have held up fine in the hot coal fires.

Good Morning everyone, it looks like this is the 'Dog Thread' this saturday.

My new pup, all 65# of him is working out pretty well. He's just about got me trained.. :o

This guy is the abandoned result of a divorce, neither adult could keep the dog. He's a Netherlands bred dog, he even has his own Neatherlands passport !!

Smart, very smart, but a lot of puppy yet. 12 months old. and still scared of stairs, but not as bad as at first. I've managed to get him up the staircase a dozen times or so, using
a piece of hot dog on each step.. he's still slow about it. I get the feeling he's REALLY smart and waiting for the pieces of hot dog on each stair tread, he's getting me
trained quite quickly.. lets see a hotdog each night just to get him up to the bedroom.. too smart. :shock:

We got about 3" of snow out of that storm that is now in New England.. But it's supposed to be 41* and rain on Monday, so I'm gonna let Mother Nature clear the driveways.

Freetown: I thought your dogs were working dogs?? Looks like they are 'working' at holding down that couch!!

My new buddy's name is Loki. He stuck his wet nose in my face at 7am this morning, telling me it was time to go out... I foolishly thought it meant to go out and pee, but
it really was to go out and PLAY.. and eventually pee. He picked up the 'Kong' on the way out the door and dropped it at my feet just outside the door.
Like I said, my training is almost complete.

Well I have a project I have to get working on out in the shop..

Take care everyone..

I got another package of onion bagels and some chive cream cheese for anyone to help them selves. Mind if I fire up the broiler to toast them?

When I was a kid, we had an Irish Setter (Shelly) for about 12 years. She was a good dog, although she did have a bit of an independent streak. Every summer we would go to northern Vermont for two or three weeks where Shelly loved to chase the butterflies and low flying airplanes.

And yes, she rode inside the car and the luggage rode on top.

NEWS FLASH ! Loki finally followed me upstairs without a treat in sight.. His curiosity must have gotten the best of him.

Now, back out to the shop.

Hey! Who drank all the coffee? I guess that's what I get for "sleeping in". My wife graciously got Ivan & the dogs downstairs without waking me up this morning. For the first time in a long time I slept until 8 am. We are both pretty worn down from the last 6 months of diaper changes and midnight/2am feedings...hopefully I can return the favor tomorrow morning.

Today was "Ash Saturday"...10 bushels worth! That is about 2 weeks worth of ashes for me...the most I have had so far this season. Good excuse to give the plow truck some exercise and "haul some ash".
