How We Met?

A journey to southern MO to the Ozarks. He was the only guy left in the litter. I liked his laid back personality and curious nature.

WILBUR KNIGHT #260132 :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: VOTE JULY 2015 DOTM RED SONJA #15100 :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: Thankx MOM for vote #5400 EUGENE, OREGON WEATHER REPORT: This morning the temperature is 58; Cloudy with the humidity @ 86% & the wind is 1 MPH SE. Today's suppose to be Partly Sunny & High 77. :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: Thursday morning, Mom took kitty sister PATCH GIRL (age 14) CC#12767 to see Dr. Nancy for her Re-check and got a clean bill of health other than her gum still healing from the Roots removal. She is about half done with her 2nd round of Orbax antibiotic. Mom also took kitty brother RHOAMIN (age 12) CC#2921 to get his B-12 Complex injection so he's good for another month. ::::::::::::::::::::: Thursday afternoon, Mom also took kitty brother JAZPYR (age 11) CC#10428 in to see Dr. Nancy and had a full Senior Wellness Bloodwork done, Urinalysis & Complete Xam. His Thyroid is enlarged some and his eyes are a bit sensitive to light. Bloodwork results will be back next week. ::::::::::::::::::::: Mom was watering her flowers Thursday when her almost new 100 foot X-Hose Pro broke at the brass connector area and got mom wet a little. Mom was not HAPPY and called them. They said the 90-Day Warranty is past so therefore mom's screwed! Dad's trying to fix it though as it did cost about $70.00. Good thing mom bought two of them at the time! Mom did say she will NEVER buy another nor recommend them! :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: Haven't seen you in quite awhile, Brody, and noticed you on the DOTM nominee, so came over to say hi! ::::::::::::::::::::: ♥ ::::::::::::::::::::: ♥♥ Don't forget to vote everyday in JULY for RBB RED SONJA #15100 so she can win her DOTM! ♥♥ ::::::::::::::::::::: Here's your vote #984 for you. ::::::::::::::::::::: Doggie Licks, WILBUR KNIGHT #260132 (DOTM KING 12/2014)

☆ SAMMIE ☆

☆ SAMMIE ☆ Hi Brody, Woke up to dense fog this morning but I got to stay out so kept myself amused by barking at everything...BOL! Now that the sun is out it's getting really hot & humid but I've got the most shady part of our entire yard & lots of fresh cool water to drink so I'm happy to stay out. I also got to bark at the stray cat (mom calls him Bartholomew) that keeps coming to eat everyday. Mom isn't sure where he spends the biggest part of his day/night but he always makes it here at least once a day. Of course our outside 'king' of the kitties (JJ) isn't thrilled with him coming but mom makes sure they don't tangle by staying close when he's here. Well got to run because mom is bringing me some treats to nibble on. Loving licks, Sammie

WILBUR KNIGHT #260132 :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: VOTE JULY 2015 DOTM RED SONJA #15100 :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: Thankx MOM for vote #5400 EUGENE, OREGON WEATHER REPORT: This morning the temperature is 52; Raining with the humidity @ 89% & the wind is 0 MPH. Today's suppose to be Rain & High 58. :::::::::::::::::::::: We have set a NEW RECORD HIGH of 65 Thursday! :::::::::::: Our OLD RECORD was 62 set back in 2010! :::::::::::::::::::::: Kitty bro TC has been up a little more often the last few days in short spurts at a time. His pain has lessened quite a bit. Mom was gone Monday morning and when she got home, she went out in the back room to check on him like she always does, but this time she ran her hands down both of TC’s sides at the same time and he never let out no meow of pain. This made mom very happy! ::::::::::::::::::::: Mom started with-holding TC's dry food at night time to see if he would eat his wet food better in the mornings which he is so mom adds the Curcumin powder to it in the mornings now rather than his night feeding. This has made a tremendous difference as he seems to be almost pain free. TC did go in for his Spinal Adjustment Thursday morning and Dr. Lisa has also seen a good improvement. He goes back in two weeks rather than weekly now. (See pic in my gallery of his treatment taken this morning) ::::::::::::::::::::: Mom tried to capture NeuBee (CC #123633) Thursday morning, too, to take her in for her FVRCP-C injection, but again, she had different thoughts about that! ::::::::::::::::::::: Mom brought home a couple C.E.T. VeggieDents for me from the vets' also and gave me one. I ignored it til last night. That's some pretty good stuff! ::::::::::::::::::::: ::::::::::::::::::::: ♥ ::::::::::::::::::::: Don't forget to vote everyday in February for KANE #187860 so he can win his DOTM! ::::::::::::::::::::: Here's your vote #977 for you. ::::::::::::::::::::: Doggie Licks, WILBUR KNIGHT #260132 (DOTM KING 12/2014)

If it rains let the drops be gentle, If it blows let the breeze be warm, Let the winter of life be kind, Provide shelter and keep him from harm. Please Lord, if he must suffer, Lord, he is old and weakened, He walks where he used to run, In his youth he was always a happy dog, Now he sleeps his days in the sun. Please make his trail level, As he travels these last few miles, Provide shade away from the heat of day, Where he can stop and rest for awhile. If it rains let the drops be gentle, If it blows let the breeze be warm, Let the winter of life be kind, Provide shelter and keep him from harm. Please Lord, if he must suffer, Give the pain and hurting to me, He has been thru life’s raging waters, As only a mans dog can be. He doesn’t deserve to be hurting, Give the pain and hurting to me, He has been thru life’s raging waters, As only a mans dog can be. He doesn’t deserve to be hurting, He has lived a hard and long time, I hope as he leaves he'll be knowing, Your love, as he has always known mine.I raised him, Lord, from a puppy,We have followed some rough rocky trails, Please Lord, make this last trail gentle,As he comes to where love never fails...........

Bark at strangers"Good little feller!"Bark at a friendIt's "Down in the cellar!"Beg in the parlor-- "Clever stunt!"Beg at the table"Down you runt!"Roll in the grass, And they say you're cute,Roll in the flowers--And dodge a boot.The ways of Humans Ain't got no sense And a pup must learn By experience!-by Berton Braley

Alabama Gang barking Vote Red Sonja #15100 DOTM The Holiday Season 'Tis the holiday season, and all through the house The puppies are squeaking an old rubber mouse. The decorations which had merrily hung on the door Are scattered in pieces, all over the floor. The stockings that hung in a neat little row, Now boast a hole in each one of the toes. The tree was subjected to bright-eyed whims, And now, although splendid, it's missing some limbs. I catch them and hold them, be good I insist. They lick me, then run off to see what they've missed. And now as I watch them, the thought comes to me, That theirs is the spirit all holidays should be. Should Children and Puppies yet show us the way, And teach us the joy that should come with this season? Could they bring the message that's written above, And tell us that, most of all, Happiness is Love!! A Dog Poem By: Author Unknown

Guardian Angels/This month honoring Angel Sammy

Guardian Angels/This month honoring Angel Sammy Wilson was the dog that helped heal my broken heart. The timing was perfect for both of us. He needed a good home and I had just lost my poodle Chance nine days earlier. Wilson was the most compassionate dog I've ever had. If you were upset, he jumped in your lap to comfort you. Wilson had lived with me just under two years when I found the lump on his neck. After testing, it was confirmed he had lymphoma. My sweet, loving best friend spent the next month being King of the Castle. As my sweet Wilson took his final breath, I held him and told him I loved him for the last time. My only wish is that Wilson knew how much he meant to me. I didn't rescue him, Wilson rescued me. Wilson will be forever remembered in my heart.

Their faces radiated and they took turns gently stroking his head. Those Benji chose to favour with a big sloppy lick exploded with laughter, and one young girl ran to her mother, screeching in French that she would never wash her face again.”Joe Camp, writer of Benji........

Alabama Gang barking Vote Red Sonja #15100 DOTM Lone Dog by Irene Rutherford Mcleod.......I'm a lean dog, a keen dog, a wild dog, and lone; I'm a rough dog, a tough dog, hunting on my own; I'm a bad dog, a mad dog, teasing silly sheep; I love to sit and bay the moon, to keep fat souls from sleep. I'll never be a lap dog, licking dirty feet, A sleek dog, a meek dog, cringing for my meat, Not for me the fireside, the well-filled plate, But shut door, and sharp stone, and cuff and kick, and hate. Not for me the other dogs, running by my side, Some have run a short while, but none of them would bide. O mine is still the lone trail, the hard trail, the best, Wide wind, and wild stars, and hunger of the quest!

Alabama Gang barking Vote Red Sonja #15100 DOTM WHY OWN A DOG?........There's a danger you know,You can't own just one, for the craving will grow.There's no doubt they're addictive, wherein lies the danger.While living with lots, you'll grow poorer and stranger.One dog is no trouble, and two are so funny.The third one is easy, the fourth one's a honey.The fifth one's delightful, the sixth one's a breeze,You find you can live with a houseful of ease.So how 'bout another? Would you really dare?They're really quite easy but, oh, Lord the hair!With dogs on the sofa and dogs on the bed,And crates in the kitchen, it's no bother, you've said.They're really no trouble, their manners are great.What's one more dog and just one more crate?The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty,The floor is all footprints, the furniture dusty.The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care?Who minds a few noseprints and a little more hair?So let's keep a puppy, you can always find room,And a little more time for the dust cloth and broom.There's hardly a limit to the dogs you can add,The thought of a cutback sure makes you sad.Each one is so special, so useful, so funny.The vet and food bills grows larger, you owe BIG money.Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay,Except other "dog folks" who live the same way.Your lawn has now died, and your shrubs are dead too,But your weekends are busy, you're off with your crew.There's dog food and vitamins, training and shots.And entries and travel and motels which cost lots.Is it worth it you wonder? Are you caught in a trap?Then that favorite one comes and climbs in your lap.His look says you're special and you know that you willKeep all of the critters in spite of the bill.Some just for showing and some just to breed.And some just for loving, they all fill a need.God, winter's a hassle, the dogs hate it too.But they must have their walks though they're numb and your blue.Late evening is awful, you scream and you shoutAt the dogs on the sofa who refuse to go out.The dogs and the dog shows, the travel, the thrills,The work and the worry, the pressure, the bills.The whole thing seems worth it, the dogs are your life.They're charming and funny and offset the strife.Your life-style has changed. Things won't be the same.Yes, those dogs are addictive and so is the dog game........Unknown Poet

Alabama Gang barking Vote Red Sonja #15100 DOTM Prayer for a dog.........Treat me gently beloved master, and I will love you with a full and happy heart.Show me patience and I will learn to understand your every word and action. I will even protect you with my life if yours is at any time in danger.Speak to me often, for your voice is music to my ears and I await even the simple sound of your footsteps, knowing soon you will be near.Shelter me from nature's bitter cold and wet and I in return will warm your feet beside the hearth. Or, if life should be unkind, I will find a place of comfort for us both, for your pleasure is my dearest wish.Play with me, for I seek your challenge just as I seek to please you. I will follow a thrown ball to the ends of the earth if you choose it and I will swim the seven seas just to see you smile.Fill my bowl with fresh water and see that I'm well fed, for I cannot speak to ask you and am completely at your mercy. But my trust in you is so complete, I know you will never do me wrong.And beloved master, when I grow old and the time comes to say farewell, hold me gently in your arms and I will go without a whimper. For with you I am safe and secure. A dog who gave love and received it with a grateful heart.Copyright © 2005 Phylis Feiner Johnson All Rights Reserved

Alabama Gang barking Vote Red Sonja #15100 DOTM The Meaning of Dog Rescue.......Now that I'm home, bathed, settled and fed,All nicely tucked up in my warm new bed.I'd like to open my baggage, lest I forget,There is so much to carry - so much to regret.Hmm . . . Yes there it is, right on the top.Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss;And there by my leash hides Fear and Shame.As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave -I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain.I loved them, the others, the ones who left me,But I wasn't good enough - for they didn't want me.Will you add to my baggage, will you help me unpack?Or will you just look at my things -And take me right back?Do you have the time to help me unpack?To put away my baggage, to never repack?I pray that you do - I'm so tired you see,But I do come with baggage -Will you still want me?A Dog Poem By: Author Unknown

Intelligent, Sensitive and Highly Social ~.^.~<>~.^.~ 1. MOTHER TURKEY IS THE CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE: For Baby Turkeys, Mom is the Center of the Universe. If separated, the youngsters will panic and let out a lost call to which the mother bird will respond by running towards them and gathering them comfortingly under her wing ~.^.~<>~.^.~ 2. THEY LIKE TO HAVE THEIR CARUNCLE STROKED: You know that bumpy looking skin on a Turkey’s head and neck? Well as it turns out, that’s one of a Turkey’s favorite places to have a stroke ~.^.~<>~.^.~ 3. THEY MAKE GREAT HAIR STYLISTS: Naturally inquisitive, Turkeys like to explore their surroundings and get to know the people they come in contact with ~.^.~<>~.^.~ 4. THEY LIKE TO SURF IN BLACKBERRY BUSHES: Given the chance, Turkeys will track down the most delicious treats to feast on, and one of their all time favorites are Blackberries. No matter how brambly that bush may be, they’ll always find a way to surf over the top and get their little beaks on the ripest pickings ~.^.~<>~.^.~ 5. THEY ARE GEOGRAPHIC MASTERMINDS: Masters of geography, Turkeys have the outstanding ability to learn the precise details of an area more than 1,000 acres in size — and here we are relying on our GPS to get us around ~.^.~<>~.^.~ 6. FLYING IS IN THEIR NATURE: While only for short distances, Wild Turkeys are able to fly up to an incredible 55 mph. Unfortunately, Domestic Turkeys can’t fly at all because they have been selectively bred to be so big that they are unable to carry out their natural instincts ~.^.~<>~.^.~ 7. THEY LIKE TO DO THE FLAMENCO: Most people don’t expect that animals like Turkeys would enjoy listening to music, but the truth is they are intelligent beings and they know how to get their groove on like the rest of us ~.^.~<>~.^.~ 8. THEY LIKE TO SLEEP IN TREES: Although usually seen wandering about on the ground, Turkeys will always choose to sleep up in the trees. They flutter up at dusk and fly down at dawn to begin their daily rituals ~.^.~<>~.^.~ 9. EACH TURKEY HAS A UNIQUE VOICE: Every single Turkey has their own unique voice, with more than 20 distinct vocalizations, which is how they recognize each other. ~Male Turkeys gobble to attract attention from the ladies and show up other guys, and this gobble can be heard from over a mile away!!~.^.~<>~.^.~ 10. THEY DON'T WANT TO BE YOUR THANKSGIVING DINNER: Despite there being endless delicious cruelty free choices available, an estimated 46 million Turkeys are killed for Thanksgiving dinner in the United States. Turkeys are loving, feeling, and intelligent individuals, and if you have the chance to visit an animal sanctuary, why not spend the Holiday feeding the Turkeys a feast instead of feasting on them ****Shih Tzu Snuggles, Misha ~Little Bear~****

As far as Japanese attacks on non-continental states during World War II are concerned, the attack on Pearl Harbor gets the press. But in 1942, Japan bombed and landed troops on the Aleutian Island chain, and subsequently occupied the Islands of Attu and Kiska. It was a battle both against people and against the elements, and thousands died. Because the area was so remote and the weather so bad, it took the United States almost a year to claim back the area.^**.~.**^. *********TRIVIA.^**.~.**^.WHAT EXACTLY IS ALASKA DAY********* On March 30, 1867, U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward purchased Alaska from Russia for the price of $7 million or, roughly two cents an acre, because Alaska is made up of a lot of acres. At the time, the land was considered largely worthless, and the deal was ridiculed as what you've probably heard was called "Seward's Folly." The land formally transferred over on October 18th of the same year, and that day is now celebrated by trivia quizzes the world over.^**.~.**^. Nowadays, Alaska accounts for twenty-five percent of the country's oil production, most of its Salmon, Crab, Halibut and Herring, and apparently, even makes sure kids get letters from Santa Claus every year. Maybe it wasn't such a bad purchase after all.^**.~.**^. In 1952, a town in Alaska was named "The North Pole" in hopes of drawing a toy manufacturer to the area, apparently from people figuring that toy manufacturers prioritized town names above things like, you know, shipping costs. But the name seems to have worked out. While going to the actual North Pole is pretty challenging, tourists can make it to Alaska. People come each year to visit the place which has street lights decorated like Candy Canes, Police Cars colored Green and White (the Ambulances and Fire Trucks are Red), and a series of streets with names like Santa Claus Lane and Kris Kringle Drive.^**.~.**^. In addition, a store there called Santa Claus house has sent, according to their website, almost 2 million letters to kids and adults around the world from people who wanted a letter with that North Pole postmark affixed. The local Post Office there will also send out the letters you mail them with that same postmark. *********TRIVIA.^**.~.**^.SARAH.~.PALIN.^**.~.**^.********** A 2002 Washington Post Article said 820 Moose (or is it Meese? We're really not sure) were killed by cars each year in the State. In the 2008 Presidential election, Sarah Palin took heat for saying Moose stew and Moose burgers were some of her favorite foods, but in Alaska, Moose is what's for dinner? While most States' road kill consists of smaller animals, in Alaska, people run into Moose, Caribou and Bears. You might think that makes for a big problem, but really it's not a problem at all. Local law says that road kill is the property of the State and when you hit an animal, you have to call a State Trooper, who will come, clean up the meat and send it off to charities who will distribute it to the poor ♥ Shih Tzu Snuggles ♥ Misha ~Little Bear~
