I got Vincent when I was 8. He was a Japanese Spitz. He was white & so smart. He went to rainbow bridge when I turned 21. It broke my heart & I cried everyday for a whole month!

I love a "QOTD"....it is such a great way to get to know our members.

I never had a dog when I was a kid. My Grandpa did have a dalmatian that lived with us. He was really Grandpa's dog and I remember being amazed at how well he listened to everything Grandpa said to him. I remember when Ricky and I got to that stage in our relationship. It was so much fun knowing he understood everything I said. And, most of all wanted to please me by showing me how much he understood and how smart he was.

We are having a big Thunderstorm, lots of thunder and lightning. Ricky was so scared of storms. He would get in bed under the covers. So, of course, I've been thinking about him and sending him lots of love and HUGS. Hoping the sun is shining where he is. emoticon

Here comes the weekend.

I AGREE WITH "QUESTION OF THE DAY" BEING A GREAT IDEA OF HOW WE CAN GET TO KNOW ONE ANOTHER.

MY DOG, THAT WAS ACTUALLY MINE, WAS A DOCSON (THAT SPELLING IS PROBABLY WRONG~BUT A WEINER DOG). I WAS 14, HE WAS CHOCOLATE IN COLOR AND HIS NAME WAS CHEROKEE. HE & MY CAT, TIGER, LOVED PLAYING (WRESTLING) TOGETHER. I HAVE A REALLY OLD PHOTO OF THE TWO OF THEM WRESTLING ON THE COUCH IN MOM & DAD'S LIVING ROOM. THEY WERE USUALLY SIDE BY SIDE. CHEROKEE SLEPT WITH ME EVERY NIGHT AND TIGER TOOK UP RESIDENTS OF MY BED DURING THE DAY WHEN I WAS NOT IN IT. WE LIVED IN THE MOUNTAINS IN CALIFORNIA AND I HAD TO WALK ABOUT A MILE EVERY DAY TO GET TO THE SCHOOL BUS STOP. MOST OF THE TIME, BOTH CHEROKEE & TIGER WOULD WALK ME TO THE BUS STOP IN THE MORNINGS....THEN (MOM WOULD TELL ME) THEY WENT RIGHT BACK HOME. I DO NOT RECALL WHAT HAPPENED TO TIGER, BUT CHEROKEE MOVED TO OKLAHOMA WITH US WHEN I WAS 16. THEN WHEN I GOT MARRIED AT 20 I WAS NOT ABLE TO TAKE HIM WITH ME AND HE BECAME MY DAD'S DOG. 100% DEVOTED TO HIM, JUST LIKE HE WAS TO ME.

MAKE 2018 THE BEST YOU CAN.

REMEMBER, JESUS LOVES YOU!!

Question of the day seems to be catching on for several teams I am on. One finds lots of interesting questions!!

My 1st pet was a Chihuahua named Peppy. I was in HS and Peppy lived with my parents after I went to school. She lived to be 17. I was blessed to have her and be able to visit her. She was blessed to have my parents as I couldn't take her where I was living and she was happy on the farm in the house:)

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

Paula, that was my thought too. I thought we can cover lots and lots of things and really get to know each other, and add as much or little as we like. :)

My first pet was a kitten, her name was Snooky. I can't remember what kind, although I do remember she was gray. And, we didn't have her very long. I don't know what happened? I was around 7 or 8 y/o. My Grandpa lived with us and he had a Dalmation when I was in High School and his name was Spot. Wonder Why??

I love the Questions of the Day. I think it is a great way to get to know the Team members. emoticon

I was about 5 and I asked my mother if we could keep one of the puppies her Sheltland Sheepdogs had. I indicated which one I was very fond of holding. Her name was Happy Canyon Lady Sunshine and she was called Sunshine. She was very gentle and patient. I showed her a number of times in the El Paso dog show held yearly.

Maintaining.

Going to try something new. May not be able to come up with one everyday, but I'll post one now and again.

So:

What was your first pet's name, what was it, how old were you?

My first was a puppy, Ginger, she was part cocker and part "who knows". We speculated it was maybe dachshund as she looked like a cute cocker with 4" legs!!! I was maybe 5 yrs. old and my parents got her because I was terrified of dogs!!! Sure got over that quick! LOL.
