I've always loved BIG dogs. Nike was a cross between a Belgian Shephard and a Golden Retriever. Missy was a Samoyed/Lab. Nice and big.
I raised a litter of orphan hound dogs in our tiny kitchen of our tiny house and they did move outside and left our place to become working dogs. This was over 20 years ago.
However I yearned for a house dog after meeting Rich.
He found a tiny terrier mix dog and we had Xena. And she was a warrior. She was a Fiest Terrier and was very aggressive.
She only lived for 4 yrs. In the end it was her aggressive hunting and attitude that did her in.
I mourned her. She had been tough as nails and had more attitude than most any dog I'd ever known.
Sometimes she'd take off and come back exhausted.
Well no explaining there. 14 years of an incredible friendship.
And he had a great job.
He helped train any hound dog puppies that came to our farm.
Dixie who was 'trained' by Morris has helped train Charlie.
And today it was Charlie's turn to help out with a puppy!
Our neighbor's new puppy. A Bichon Frise and Shih Tzu mix!
Charlie is a tough little guy and ...
Are we having fun yet?
