My Dogs for the last 33 years

Hi Friends, I have looked and looked and I just don't have any pictures of Bambi and I together!
That is a bad thing! I will have to have Tom take some pictures of Bambi and I together one day. Anyway this post is about the dogs that have lived with me for the last 33 years! We are going from now to 33 years ago. Of course you all know everybody. I do have some new blog friends that do not know everybody though. The pictures are for them.
Above is my sweet Bambi that was dropped of at the animal shelter by who ever was the owner of her mom. Not sure when that was. Bambi was spayed by the shelter at too young an age. She was adopted out 2 times before me. Poor thing was close to death because the people who had adopted her were not dog people. It took me 30 minutes to know she had kennel cough. She was at the vets the next day. The vet said she was close to dying. I got her just in time!!!!!

Then Miss Amanda!!

The very special Joker

The dog love of my life Bruce!!!! My G. S. D.

Bruce was the stud fee for my ex-husband 's G. S. D. mating with this other G. S. D. that he met at an obedience class. The ex and I parted company a year later.
The other dogs were all rescues.
That is it for today! I love your comments so please leave one for me.
All my blog friends mean so much to me!!
See you again soon, Bambi and Fern


  1. It was wonderful to see you with all of your dogs! The love between you and them is obvious

    It's been a while since we've seen you ... and nice to be back!

    Enjoy the holidays!

    Jake and Fergi xxoo

  2. That is not surprising. We have hardly any photos of us with mom because she takes all the pictures. You will need to get one of you with Bambi.


  3. Such great photos with all your precious sweeties!!! So great you HAVE them - I don't think I have any childhood pix with our family dogs, sigh. But I can live vicariously through blogger pals like you! Thanks for sharing!
    Hugs xo

  4. We have to agree with Mango -since Mom's the photographer (and hates to have her picture made) there are very few photos of her with us.

  5. Fern,
    I'm a lot like you, as I can't imagine my life w/out a dog...they have always been my best friends.
    Hugs to you and critters,

  6. Hi Fern

    Loved seeing all the pictures of you and your dogs. Such happy smiles all around. It's very cold here, wish I was in warm Fl.

  7. Hi Fern,
    My hubby and I went out to dinner with friends last night. I was excited to find a package from you on the porch when we got home. That rascal Madi was fast asleep. We have not opened it yet. That is first on the to do list tonight. I want to get lots of pictures of her sniffing (as you know she is a sniffer) the outside etc. THIS IS HER VERY FIRST EVER
    present. So we intend to enjoy the entire process. Pictures will be posted by Sunday afternoon I hope!! I'm about as excited as Madi is. You don't know how hard it was for me not to open it last night. I kept reminding myself it is Madi's not yours. HA
    Hugs from Madi and Mom

  8. PS I thoroughly enjoyed seeing and reading about all your very lucky pets. We have been married 40 years on Feb. 14. We've had pets all but 7 of those years.
