Dude is in the house, with Sally waiting for dinner.

Notice how big the skinny dog is! he is probably about 60 lbs. And he is too skinny. WOW!

Day one, still very afraid. Notice the leg, he has a hurt leg.

Dude arrives

Mitch went to Webbers Falls to look at an old bicycle salvage and up walked this emaciated dog. So Mitch being the good husband called his wife and said "what do I do". So of course, I said, put the dog in the car and bring him home. Which was a good thing, that night it got below freezing and stayed that way for 4 days. The dog wouldn't have made it much longer. He was soooo skinny.

The next day we happened to meet a woman for the mastiff rescue and gave her our name and number. But, meanwhile, we got to know the dog. He is very sweet, very strong, and very timid. He spent the first night in the garage on a old Volkswagen seat covered with a blanket. The second night he spent half the night in the bathroom with a baby gate blocking his exit. Every night since he has slept on Sally's bed, right next to ours.

Don't worry about Sally, she sleeps on the bed with us. (Can you say spoiled?)

Brad and I missed 3 days of school thanks to the ice and sleet. So we have totally bonded with the DUDE. Yep, he has a name, it's Dude. It is a perfect match for him. He is too cool.

He is already housebroken, we think. He will be neutered on Monday.

We love him, it is up to Mitch to whether or not he stays. If it matters I votes yes, so does Brad, Sally, Frank and Jack. The cats could care less, but they aren't afraid. :)

Thanksgiving pictures 2008

This is Ralph, the cat down the street. He is a complete doll. He purrs the second you touch him.
Brad, Audrey Grace and Ralph. Grace was in LOVE. She played with Ralph from the moment she met him until she left. Luckily, we had already eaten.
The Happy Family. It is rare that we are all together in a picture. Thanks Suzanne!

Robbers cave

just a cute pic of Sally and Jack.

Today we had a great adventure to Robbers Cave for a fall follage festival. There were hundreds of vintage cars, carnival games and craft vendors. When we were done we went to the caves for a climb.

Meet the Cats

This is Frank and Jack. Frank is white and moving in on Jack's sleeping place. Look closely at Jack, you will rarely see him. He is a very private kitty who is photo shy.
