    I know! The hounds want to leave to chase stuff. The scents wafting over the fence are just enticing!

    My dad loved beagles and used them to hunt rabbits.

    After looking up Lagotto Romangnolo, it's adorable and really fills the bill except that if I were to get a pure bred it would be 3,000-4,000 and that is definitely counter to my principles in terms of getting shelter/rescue dogs. It's also counter to my financial goals at this stage of my life.

    Maybe I can find a mix at some point.

    Seems like every senior that walks at our park has either a Maltese, Lhasa Apso (sp?) or Schnauzer. It's sad but I love finally being dog-free after years of owning them. However, I am lately enamored of Shiba Inus.

    I got my first dog as a adult 15 years ago. I would never be without one. Although, I have not added as they have died. We will unfortunately be down to 2 soon as Mandy has kidney disease.

    This past winter was the worst!!! For the first time ever.... have reserved a spot in warmer climes this coming winter. A sign of age that a person can't tolerate the cold and flees winter!!! I am looking forward to being gone.

    In 22 years we have only had 4 real winters so usually it’s not a big deal.

    @Teacher Terry

    Dog breeds aside, is Your World shrinking, Dearie?

    I still carry a hot ember from 1962, the National Library Week theme: Read and watch your world grow.

    By damn, I went to the Carnegie Public Library consistently.

    Be well! I hope there will be some consolation for you in literature.

    I think Shiba Inus are the prettiest dogs. They look like foxes.

    Huge schnauzer fan!

    We got the first as a downsize from a Labrador. The lab passed, and I wanted something that would travel better, hypoallergenic, but still a deterrent to break ins and protective. She fit the bill!

    Now we have two schnauzers, one large 25lb maltipoo and a toy poodle. Having recently added the toy,.I am catching on to the pocket pet trend. He hopefully will fly with me in two weeks. Never done that before!
