    These three are excellent at killing bushes by alternately digging them up, peeing on them, and lying on top of them.

    My Grandfather picked up a heeler mix that somebody was not happy about the "mix" part as a puppy. You couldn't stop that dog from hunting if you tried. Birds, coon, armadillo (his favorite), deer, wild dogs, coyote, you name it, he goes for it. Heck, f you bring a gun out with you, or point a gun, he just sort of ghosts into being at a dead run in the direction you are aiming.

    The only bad part owning a good dog is when they die, a little of you dies with them.

    @Bishop sorry you lost your dog/friend. They are truly family and it hurts something awful when they pass.

    We had a border collie chow mix when the kids were younger. It was a great dog to have around children. He kept them safe, followed them, watched over them and would alert if he didn't like a scent. He was perfect. We lost him and got an ankle biter. Not a big scary thing but he chose us and he is what we need right now. He is usually a ground sniffer but the other night we went out at 9 ish, his head went in the air, he sniffed a bit and turned to go back in. What ever scent he caught, he wanted nothing to do with it.

    This is Trooper and Ranger. I hate to admit it but, they are not very smart. They act more like people than animals.

    Very true words, @kellory ..I had not thought of it that way but, that is exactly right.

    I don't share this often; yet I know it would be understood and appreciated here.

    A Dog’s Plea

    Treat me kindly, my beloved friend,

    For no heart in the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me.

    Do not break my spirit with a stick, for though I might lick your hand between blows, your patience and understanding will more quickly teach me the things that you would have me learn.

    Speak to me often, for your voice is the world's sweetest music, as you know by the fierce wagging of my tail when the sound of your footstep falls upon my waiting ear.

    Please take me inside when its cold and wet, for I am a domestic animal, no longer accustomed to bitter elements.

    I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth.

    Keep my pan filled with fresh water, for I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst.

    Feed me clean food that I may stay well, to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side and stand ready,willing and able to protect you with my life, should your life be in danger.

    And, my friend, when I am very old and I no longer enjoy good health, hearing and sight, do not make heroic efforts to keep me going. I am not having any fun. Please see to it that my life is taken gently.

    I shall leave this earth knowing with the last breath I draw that my fate was always safest in your loving hands.

    @Hanzo, Indigo is absolutely adorable. Her beautiful face says I am Loved. I thinks she is a snuggler. Loves to share the foot of the bed. Just what I see in her face.

    @Tikka Your BABY is a real Ham. I looked at her and I am trying to figure out what she is saying or asking. I think she wants to go hunting or riding in a vehicle. I like to try and read their minds.

    Thank you for "A Dog Plea". It is so sad, but so true.

    Indigo doesn't get to go on the bed or furniture. At least he wasn't supposed to. So you can imagine his face when out cat, Jing would jump on the bed.

    I miss them both.

    So sorry for you losing Indigo and jing. When we lose special animals, it is so hard. They are a part of the family.

    W had one of those puppies and it would round up cows and also all the cats. It was hilarious. She snipped one of the calves in the ear and we had to give her away. But I loved little Matt!!

    There's actually a 4th in the pic but she's lying behind the Dobie. 4 pounds and the same color pattern as he has so she's well hidden when she slips between him and the couch for a nap.

    I've buried more good dogs over the years than I've had good friends. And buried a few terrible ones as well. Probably why my gardens are always so lush.
