As you can tell by the title of today's post, this is my # 300 post. That is a very big deal from a gal who is dyslexic and legally blind in one eye and don't see very good out of the other. A very big deal!!! I am so hooked on telling the world about everything!!! Tom doesn't like it but he loves me and is trying to stay out of it!!
For you that are new the picture above is of Joker and I a long time ago!!! I rescued him from a couple who made their living by breeding and showing dogs. Joker was 5 and a half when he came to live with us!! He had never been in a house before!!!! He had always been in a kennel.
Joker was an Ibizan Hound. At the time there were only a few in the US. Joker was born in the UK and this couple had had him shipped over to the US. It turned out he was not a good breed dog. He didn't do well in the dog shows. He had a very bad over bite and he was too tall. They had sold him 3 times before I rescued him. I don't know why the people brought him back!! The couple tried to sell him the forth time but got no takers in a year. They were going to put him to sleep if they couldn't get rid of him!!! We took him and we loved him so very much for 7 years!!! He was so so wonderful!!!
This was going to be a short post but I got carried a way!!!
The flower is a camellia. It is called a Pink Perfection.... It is blooming this time of year if it is not freezing!! It is warm today. The bush and buds are not hurt by cold!! They are wonderful to have this time of year!!!
