FREE Dental Exam

Let me explain. We just worked the Reliant Energy Dog Show "Meet the Breed." I hauled almost 200 pounds of hound to this event @ 6:00 a.m. We filled the ring with people standing 3 and 4 deep to get a photo op, free squeeze, free kisses and pepper me with questions. I was so busy I never had an opportunity to get new pictures this year.

A child that stood out was a rowdy 4 year old, wild against his parents’ pleas for calming down. He thrust himself in front of my bloodhound, mouth wide open. As if in slow-motion, Juno never blinked or moved, but her long pink tongue shot into his mouth and did a clean swipe across his baby teeth. No need for dental cleaning for a while. This boy recoiled with the look of total violation. His parents folded into choking laughter, explaining had he approached her calmly, his meet-&-greet would have been a little less personal.

Bloodhounds are French, you know...

We Moved to The Country

I apologize for the great delay in posting to our fellow hound lovers. My plate has been so full it has filled up, spilled over and is now pooling around me. Last fall I decided I had had enough of the taxes and city living so I sold to a motivated buyer and moved out into the country on several acres. I wanted to go back growing my own food and seeing my hounds run and bay to their hearts content. I did this before when I was 18 years old-bought land way out in the sticks and raised my kids out there. Now I am nearing 50 and I don't move as fast as I used to. Plus, having hot flashes in already 100+ degree heat is enough to make me pass out. Since I am (still) single and work in the city, I am tired and not keeping up with some things like I want. Like HoneyBelle's Blog. She still is having great stories to share and I will work on getting them posted. I hope to see y'all around again.
