Pictures of past and present dogs :
I’ve been so covered up in trying to earn a living that I haven’t been much of a parent to Andy, but I’m working to change that also.
I have set out a couple of times to bring Andy in and show him to you. When I saw his mother and father I liked their size, I was thinking that they were 35 maybe 40 pounds. Smaller dogs, at least. I’ve been trying to get smaller dogs for 45 years now, but I always seem to get the basketball player of the litter.
Andy is a big boy. He can run 5 miles with me pedaling as fast as I can on the bike, and swim for 45 minutes, and then want to play with the ball when we get home! He is truly a nuclear reactor of energy and I have figured out that I can’t out muscle him. I’m starting to think that I can’t outsmart him, so I’m not sure how to get the upper hand, But I will.
Thank you for the note, I would like to bring Andy in sometime, you won’t believe this guy.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Thank you so much for the fun, joy, companionship and challenges that Andy has brought into my life!
