Monday's Memories

Hey Blogville friends. Hope your day is going well for you!! The picture above is Tom with Joker. Joker was a rescue Ibizan Hound. He was 5 and a half years old when we got him!!! He had (that I knew of) never been in a house before we got him. In spite of that he did wonderfully in the house.
He never tore anything up or chewed anything!! He never made a mess in the house except once and I told him that was a NO NO and he never did again!! If you have never had a rescued dog you really should. If you just buy them you are missing out on a very wonderful experience!!! They know that you have done a wonderful thing for them and they really try very hard to please you!!!
This was the dog love of my life Bruce....... He also was a wonderful dog!! When he was a puppy from 7 weeks old until almost a year old we were never apart. Together 24/7 we were together and that is the way to have a puppy!!! Never being out of each others sight!!! You get to teach everything and they learn so fast. I had him house trained in just days!!!!!
Another rescue dog Amanda!!! She was 4 and a half when we got her. Such a wonderful dog she was!! We had such a good time together!!!
Here is Tom a little heavy. He is not heavy anymore. That is his animal love of his life Tiger. The love between those two was so very special!! Tiger made it to 17 years old.
A walk down memory lane today!!!
I love your company Friends !!!!!!

Love coming your way, Happy (cat) Bambi (dog) & Fern (Mom)

  12. Hi Fern,
    I was just catching up on your posts. I'm sorry you took a spill in the garden, but I hope the pain has past. You've had some lovely pets through the years. They are fortunate to have found you. Hope you have a nice weekend!
    Hugs to you and Bambi,
