Here is a picture of my ex-dog that I found last night. It was taken back on the Utah Salt Flats back in 2005 or so. I was told that Sam Dog passed away last year. He led a noble life.
As I have housemates, one nice addition to the house is a dog. One is here now, and another will be coming in to take Mortimer's place when Mort moves out with his owner, which should be this weekend. Dogs embrace all the good attributes in people, and they are always wonderful to have in the world.
Although I am traveling all next week, I will be returning to a white/yellow Labrador Retriever living with me. Labs rule. Hopefully he can co-exist with the chickens, being the lab that he is. We shall see.
