Dogs

Some of the dogs I have known
In no particular order
One neighbor likes to walk his poodle wearing a Scottish wool cap and rubber boots. The poodle has a collar that blinks.
Another neighbor wears sweats and walks his two dachshunds down the middle of the street.
When my brothers and sisters get together they will talk about a spaniel named Goggles that my family had in Crookston. Apparently I ran over his tail with my stroller when I was a toddler. I can't recall.
My brother Lowell had a cool black lab named Nico that I used to get to take care of sometimes. In 7th grade art class I made a profile of Nico's head with clay and painted it with black glaze.
I remember staying at Maple Lake near Alexandria-- the farm where my Dad grew up with some nice little cabins by the lake. There was a German shephard there one time who would play fetch with really big rocks.
My Karkula cousins had a peppy little spotted dog named Snoopy that liked to lick people.
My Johanson cousins had a spaniel who jealously protected the homestead against all enemies.

How interesting that you should post this now. Amy and I had a great dog, Fraidy Cat, for almost 14 years. She was just a mongrel rescued from a texas pound, but she would get the paper in the morning, even if it was raining. We had to put her down this afternoon.

That's too bad. Going to get another?

Eventually, but not until we move into the new house. The new dog will be bigger and a full-time outdoor dog with duties geared toward guarding, protecting, and scaring away errant cats and deer.
