Yall know darn well....

Postby skyhightree1 » Wed May 28, 2014 10:13 pm

Yall know I didn't need anymore dogs. My wife and kids came home with these guys on Sunday my kids called me while I was working and said dad we sorta got a pet I said that's cool what is it they said 2 puppies I said ummm I hope your kidding and if not you need to take them back then my daughter said dad they have no home the lady is losing her house and no one wants them so here I am I bought a few more dog pens for them and will fence in the yard eventually. One is pure black lab and one is black lab mixed with Rottweiler or a german shepherd good dogs and they definitely let you know if someone is near the house. I felt bad they had no home and the lady was just gonna take them and dump them somewhere.

Welcome to my world. My wife works for a vet, and in the 5 years she's been there, we've inherited 4 dogs an 2 cats in addition to the ones we already had. :lol2: Most of the dogs are older ones that were strays and brought in by rescues cause they were about to be put down at animal control. I can't blame you. Those pups should turn out to be good ones for you. Double trouble.

Nesi i guess you have a point. Don I agree so far I haven't had to do anything for them like water or feed or anything I have only put up the dog pens and will do their shots.

I agree but at long as they continue to behave and do as we tell them and do good in school I will let them get whatever they want within reason as long as it doesn't involve anymore pets. Their rabbits are now my pets lol

the one getting its nose rubbed looks very much like my Dee Dee who was a pound puppy we got after my wifes dog, Toby, Died

we think she is part hound and part border collie....as a puppy she looked like an australian shepherd....but she is home guarding the wife now...unless it thunders...then she hides...she hid most of the night last night....then woke me up at 1:00 to go out and pee....

We had pour down rain rain last night starting about time for me to go out and tend the stock....I waiting til the lightening passed by....was crackling and popping pretty good...

1.4 inches of rain in about 20 - 25 minutes then another .4 inches over night in my gauge this morning. Others around me had more. one neighbor said he had mini tornados and it was raining in circles at his farm....

pdf we got a few big rain drops and that was it and misty rain is all no real rainfall. We had some seriously bad thunder like around 10-11pm last night and a ton of lightning not that much rain. I think we are due for a dry one this year.

Right at $600.00 per month is what it was. now that I have thinned out some dogs and plan to continue I am not sure what it will be after thinning them out. I hope it gets down to 200-250 a month.
