jey old friend. I used to do hunt trials with that group out here but it’s been maybe ten years ? Like any group you’ll encounter s mix of folks. Be wary of the guys who think there is only “their” way to train a dog. Good looking pup. Send me a boardmail if you want

The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn’t just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I’m as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.
First of all, there’s the name that the family use daily,
Such as Peter, Augustus, Alonzo, or James,
Such as Victor or Jonathan, George or Bill Bailey—
All of them sensible everyday names.
There are fancier names if you think they sound sweeter,
Some for the gentlemen, some for the dames:
Such as Plato, Admetus, Electra, Demeter—
But all of them sensible everyday names,
But I tell you, a cat needs a name that’s particular,
A name that’s peculiar, and more dignified,
Else how can he keep up his tail perpendicular,
Or spread out his whiskers, or cherish his pride?
Of names of this kind, I can give you a quorum,
Such as Munkustrap, Quaxo, or Coricopat,
Such as Bombalurina, or else Jellylorum—
Names that never belong to more than one cat.
But above and beyond there’s still one name left over,
And that is the name that you never will guess;
The name that no human research can discover—
But THE CAT HIMSELF KNOWS, and will never confess.
When you notice a cat in profound meditation,
The reason, I tell you, is always the same:
His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation
Of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his name:
His ineffable effable
Effanineffable
Deep and inscrutable singular name

Best pillow ever!

This is our dog we rescued from a high kill shelter in SoCal. Neither my wife nor I grew up with dogs but we are told that he is an uncommonly good and smart dog. He’s been great for our kids but he is most attached to me and hangs out with me whenever I’m around.

Great looking pooch,

I think this (yesterday) was the last of the snow for this season.

You’ll be a changed man — for the better.

Every now and then a truly great dog comes along. Smart, sweet, patient, and always ready to play. A good little sister to the older dog, and later a good big sister to the younger dog. A friend of our children and even to our cats. We said goodbye to Brooklyn tonight after 13 years. On her last day with us, she had a long, sunny walk on a beautiful day, lots of extra treats, and lots of belly rubs. We had no idea that the end of this day would be goodbye, and that’s how it was. Fittingly, she went quickly and without any trouble. That’s just how she was. So long, dear old friend. We’ll look for you when we get there.

The death of a pet is surprisingly hard on each of us. I know how you feel. I hope your pain lessens as mine has. I hope you stay in good spirits, and remember the fun and good times.
