Monday memories-- Joker

Joker came to us in 1984.  I don't remember if he was 6 or 7 years old.  He had been born in a kennel and lived in a kennel all that time!!!   With him and I, it was love at first sight!!!  We brought him home and he didn't want to get out of the car???  It turns out he did not want to step in the grass!!!!
It took a while but we finally got him in the house and he did not know what to do in here either !!!!   Poor baby!!!  He had never been in a house either before!!!  It was so many firsts  for Joker that night and for the next few days.  I am sure it was very hard on him but we were very patient with him and tried to teach as we went along.  It turned out he was very smart and eager to learn.  He loved me so much and I loved him so much!!!!! 

I don't have a lot of pictures of him from that time or any time that he was with me b/c we were just not taking a lot of pictures back then.  I am going to tell you all about Joker in the next few posts.  I can not think of any thing to post about so Joker it is!!!  LOL

love coming your way, Circle, Max, Allie & Fern


  1. Helloo Fern ~ First thanks for joining my blog. I see you like quilts. Here is one I made that I entered in the Pets on Quilt Contest. t
    Joker was lucky to get your home. Strange how memories about our past pets just creep into our minds and give us smiles.

  2. Joker may have had a hard first part of his life, but I know he was loved for the rest. Looking forward to more stories!

  3. Oh poor Joker, having to live so long in a kennel must have been hard. I'm and so glad you brought him home and gave him the love and attention he deserved. I'm looking forward to hearing more about him.

  4. Wow, Joker is adorable! I'm so glad he got to live with you and know a better life. Can't wait to read more about him.
    BTW: I saw your comment the other day, and yes, it's sad but true that I'm not always very nice to Frankie & Ernie. I try, but sometimes I'm rotten and not very sociable. Booooo
    Grr and Woof,

  5. I LOVE to read your posts about your babies. You are the best and most patient animal mommy. Reminisce away, Fern. Let's hear all about Joker.

  6. I'm sure that even though Joker had a lot to learn 'bout livin' in a house, it was well worth it 'cause I bet he had a WONDERFUL life livin' with you.


  7. Joker was such a handsome boy and he couldn't have chosen a better mom than you, Auntie Fern!

    Love ya lots♥
