Trying hard to wait nicely

Those were the days my friends!!!! That was Joker rescued end of September 84. Look at how he was looking at me. This was the finest dog anyone could ever want!!! The best dog anyone could ever want.
Joker loved all other animals all of them!!!! Even the wild ones!!!
Even the dog who bit him and he had to have 22 stitches!!! His heart was so full of love!!!! He was 5 and a half when he came to us and not well. Joker ended up having digestion trouble and thyroid problems and I had to cook for him. Oh yes he had kidney disease too!!! Joker lived with us until he was 12.6 years old before the kidney disease got him. It was a wonderful 7 years we had with him. We cried for him after her left for months.

The men were suppose to come yesterday to start getting my wires straighten out but didn't show or call. Still no high speed for a while I guess. In case I end up disappearing for a few days it will be b/c my phone lines are down!!

Love coming your way, Happy & Fern


  1. Oh Fern that is probably one of my favorite photos of you and it makes it even better that Joker is in it.

    What a good boy he sounded like and what great memories you have of him. He is showing Bambi the way im sure of it.

    Hang in there, we will be here when you come back :)

    oh stop by and enter to win some treats!

  2. Beautiful roses, Joker, and Fern!!!

  3. Sissy is like that... she just loves to love.


  4. Look at the LOVE in his eyes. What a wonderful boy...

  5. Don't you hate to be at the mercy of the high-speed providers? I loved the photograph. What a wonderful dog.

  6. Joker is a really handsome dog! All the waiting for the high speed is starting to get annoying....BUCK UP, people!

  7. Hi Fern, both you and Joker look great in the photo. I bet this one's on your mantle. Hang in there Fern, when the man finally comes by to set-up your high-speed, offer him/them tea. It might not be much, but I bet you the install goes better because you treated him nicely rather than give him a hard time.

  8. Hi Fern, our old girl Kara was just like that. Loved everyone and everything. Some dogs are special for sure. We hope your bloomin' lines are fixed up soon. No worries, and love, Carol (and Stella and Rory)

  9. Joker sounds like he was just the most wonderful boy. We love that picture of you and Joker, Fern!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

    Another day of Hurry Up ... and Wait... sorry it is taking so long Miss Fern.
