since I last posted. July of 15, in fact! Cheers to all!

I dunno who'd recall Hugo, but he passed just shy of 11 a couple months back...
he was an awesome dog. It's never easy, but it wasn't tragic or unexpected, we had a good long run together.

But after moping around for awhile, this guy fell into my lap, and well, 46 years of my 65 have had one right there, or closeby, watching, it simply is not normal otherwise. So without further blather on my part let me introduce Radar.



The photobomber in the bottom corner is Cubby, a 3 yr old Pom.

Hey there DanO! Iím happy to see you! My compassion for the loss of dear Hugo. I remember his solid nature and gorgeous coat. A warm welcome to adorable Radar! What a cutie! Cubby the Pom is adorable, too!

Hi DanO, glad to see you again.

Sorry for your loss of Hugo, it doesn't make a big difference if it is expected or not, it still hurts.

Hope to hear more about Radar and pictures of course.

My sympathy for the loss of Hugo. As Val said, expected or not, it hurts.
I'm glad that Radar found you. He looks full of life and of course gorgeous. May he bring back good memories and build new ones for you.

btw, radar is doing great, growing like a weed, been to 4 classes, a group walk, met some kids, the folks in the firehall, the party store, the feed store. Had his pennhips taken they were awesome. Been long enough to show any inner demons, but except for that one time he got hold of a knife and went after the cat, he's been a model citizen!

the website is work in progress. I had a ton of pix on comcast, and they killed it, so the pages needed some tweaks...but pretty happy so far. It was cathartic to review all the captured memories. I spun the image counter on that camera with Hugo.
