devil dogs and puppies

July 27, 2016

Jude and I are in an extraordinary stretch to get not only our own firewood up before the rains return in two months, but ten cords we’ve sold to others.  I can’t even find time to bitch about Trump.  That’s when you know for certain that you’re too busy.

Fifty years ago this summer I was in boot camp metamorphosing from a mere mortal into a U.S. Marine.  Until I can find the time to write you the posts you deserve, please relive those days with me by reading this, this and this.

In all this busy-ness, we’ve had a smiling nod from the universe.  Although we weren’t looking for another dog as we properly grieved Slinkee’s death, we had one dropped in our lap.  Meet Katoo.  Much more on her soon.Katoo June, 2016 011

      Didn’t think of OJ. It really comes from Katoo being Kate’s favorite of the litter so we offered to name her Kate. Kate said, “Maybe Kate 2”. I thought that sounded too clinical so I suggested Ka – too (Ka – short “a” sound and too as in also). Sounds much more sophisticated and exotic, don’t you think?

    Mel and I had a dog that looked just like your new one. He was called a cougar hound – ?? mix.called Brandy. Had eyebrows that made him look so intelligent.

    He was a great dog – very intelligent. Hope Katoo is as good .

      Her mom is mostly border collie, with some lab and a touch of wolf. Dad is lab and rottweiler.
      We expect a big smart dog.
