Meet Thunder

Posted by PicasaLet's see if this works Though I can't seem to put the text where I want it Getting MAD!!
Meet Thunder, the latest addition to our family
Thunder is an eight year old German Cooli cross with two different colored eyes
A very placid loving family pet  My Grandchildrens dog
Placid until it comes to their other female dog who is much bigger than Thunder
Unfortunately Thunder has " little dog syndrome" where Allie is concerned and continually provokes Allie
This time unfortunately Allie had had enough and Thunder came out second best
Lynda faced the choice of having one or the other put down
The kids were so upset
So good old Nan and Pop said they would take Thunder and see if it works out
The kids are so happy that neither of their much loved pets will be put down
Nan is not to sure about the whole thing
Thunder apparently continually loses hair
She would be an outside dog but she is very unwell and by the time she gets better and used to living here she will be an inside dog.It is to wet and cold to put her outside now
We are flooded in AGAIN
Some more blocks done in My Memory quilt
I think it may end up being two quilts
Now let's see if this will publish
Fingers crossed

What a good Nana you are! It's amazing how short haired dogs don't become bald with all the hair they lose! :-)

Good for you Illene. And great for Thunder. Dogs always know where they can be themselves at, Thunder looks as though he knows his spot already :)) And when the grandkids come, they'll have great times still :) D
