One of the things I miss the most from back home is my best friends puppy. Well ok, when I lived at her place, she has 5 horses, one which was at her moms and the rest at her place, and 4 dogs. One that neither of us owned, he just inherited us one day. But, having moved here to the big city and into an apartment, I miss having the wide open spaces and the animals. So, I decided that I wanted a puppy of my own. So here is the father when he was a baby. He was and is so cute. I went with them when Candice bought him and he fit right in. While I was in Colville, he lived with me while Candice was somewhere else and we had such a great time. I miss all the animals. Who would have known that all animals have their own little personalities. Even her horses have senses of humor. I miss the baby, now named junior cause he looks just like his mama, had a funny personality. I miss him following me around while I was in the pasture and laying his head on my shoulder while I was trying to fix the fence. He was so funny. I'd smack him to get him from knocking me over and he'd keep trying.
So, in a couple of weeks I am having one of McCoy's puppy's flown down here. He is a pure bred mini Australian Sheppard (and yes, I flunked spelling) and Candice bred him with a jack russell. I am so excited. The animals have been my kids and sometimes, I think they want more than kids. But the one big difference.... They can't talk back. I am sure they try, but for some reason, I just don't have to listen.!!! :)

I was headed east and the kid in front of me decided to hit his brakes. I don't blame him, but I sometimes wonder what the outcome would be if he hadn't don't that. Anyway, on the side of the road two FINE Washington State Patrol officers were parked. Yup you guessed it. I totalled all three.. Now does this have any reason as to why I left the state. Well...... no just kidding. No it didn't. But I do think it slapped me back into reality a little bit. I had two others in my truck and one of the officers was in his car. We all lived with minor injuries and for that I am grateful. So, I guess you could say that in a way Christmas this year was good and bad for me.
But with all this, I am still smilin'!!!
