this kid can flat out sing country

does garth better than Garth

I've went full redneck...my new favorite song

Junior is still my baby bear dog

He doesn't replace The Budster but he fills a void there.He is becoming special in his own way.
Newfies are the most layed back dogs I have ever seen.Junior doesn't get phased by anything...you could let off a bomb and he would just sit and watch unphased

Bengie update number two

for anyone who hasn't followed the story we adopted a rescue who was ...ummm...what's the words...put through hell her whole life at a puppy mill...who lived in a cage her whole life in a dudes backyard along with 50 odd other dogs.

The transformation in Bengie is AMAZING.We got her cleaned up and trimmed all the matting in her hair first thing and have given her about 5 bath's to get her smelling right

She was real skittish for about two days until it clicked in her that she is considered family just like the rest of the dogs.The transformation is nothing short of a miracle.She is becoming every bit as much of a pain in the ass attention hog as the Wonder Terrier.

We were really worried about how the Wonder terrier would react to another female terrier about her size but they are best friends.Katie is teaching her the fine art of being the crazy Wonder Terrier.They play ALL DAY.Poor Junior just watches the crazy like the rest of us.One pure Parson and now Bengie the Parson/Aussie sheepdog mix is something to behold.

HELL ON PAWS is the best way to describe the situation.We are having a blast watching them.They have developed a game where they run wide open up the stairs and jump on the bed and then run wide open back to the couch...over and over...until they are exhausted.

All in all it is going better than I ever hoped.Bengie and Katie are hell unleashed upon the world.If they start the Apocalypse I guess I can be blamed....they are like a nuclear bomb going off in my house.

how's your weekend going?

Pic of the new baby

so IF you had won..what is your dream car you would buy?

me?...no question...a Hennesey Venom

update on Bengie

Bengie is a SHE...oopsie...she seems to like the name so Bengie it is.Props to The Wiley Boy Cat Named Ginger

Starting to get the back story on her.She was one of over 50 dogs rescued from a farm where a guy just had them all in cages in the back yard where they had to be forcibly removed due to neglect.She is matted up pretty bad on the back and backside but nothing a grooming can't take care of.Wife has given her a bath but she still doesn't exactly smell like a rose

Tonight after work was my first chance to really interact with her.She seems amazingly well adjusted under the circumstances.She was in bed with the wife when I got home with Katie and Junior the CowGod so I introduced myself for a few then took her for a walk.She doesn't fight the leash but tries to walk me.Under the circumstances I wasn't going to argue the point with her and let her lead.Besides..I just did ten hours of hard labor so I aint arguing with her.

She blended right in with the other two food disposals and seems to have already figured out that outside only for bathroom is the rule.She seems to have self housetrained simply by walking with the other two for one evening.She seems smart as hell.

She is definitely a momma's girl.Junior is here with me as I'm typing,Katie is doing the whole wonder terrier thing acting crazy wherever....but Bengie made a beeline for the bed and Momma when I brought her in and has been there ever since.

Under the circumstances she seems like a pretty calm,well adjusted dog.

here is the newest member of the clan...Bengie

This pic is while he is still at the rescue....wife is picking him up after work

ok this is embarressing..Bengie is NOT a shelti

saw the pics but misunderstood the description.

He's HALF Parson Russel Terrier and Half sheepdog...interesting mix

so I got junior a herding partner :)

lord the wonder terrier is in trouble

The wife is picking up a rescue on the way home that we both fell in love with....it's a Shetland Sheepdog.

They describe it as 500 lbs of energy in a 50 pound dog

This is gonna be fun...a newfie...a Shetland Shep...and the wonder terrier who rules all

I've gotta stop going to the rescues...gonna be over run soon

Only bad part I read about the breed is they like to herd...they REALLY like to herd...like they will herd humans given the chance

Will post a pic soon as I can...he looks like an overgrown Bengie

and people wonder why so many activists quit posting here

it's plain
