It’s all about friends …

Woofee! I get to go. The Geezer, Mrs. G and I are off on brief trip..

It’s all about friends. The Geezer is off to North Carolina to help his best friend celebrate #80! I get to go too. Humans don’t often get things right from my point of view. One of those “spot on” things they do is to value friendships.

The Geezer often holds five fingers up and says, “A wise friend of mine once told me, ‘If you have a truly good friend for each of those fingers, you are a very fortunate human being.'” The man he’s going to visit is the author of that sage wisdom.

According to the Geezer a friend is there for you, if you’re right or if you’re wrong. They know your deepest secrets and share them with no one. They tell you the truth when no one else will. They support you when all others disappear. They brake the fall when your plunging. They boost you when you need a step to rise. Their affection, loyalty, and respect is a constant that never wavers.

Happy Birthday Coach!

Meet Remi, my niece … she’s nice!

 

Meet Remi!

Meet Remi!

I want to introduce you to my niece, Remi. She lives with my humans friends in Jacksonville. Isn’t she a pretty puppy. She’s only four months old and she’s a heart-breaker already.

 

Remi loves the pool. Is she a future Olympian?

Remi loves the pool. Is she a future Olympian?

Remi has energy levels that exhaust me just watching her. Her human, Mr. R, would throw different toys into the water and … kerplunk! She never tired of retrieving and swims magnificently. Imagine, she’s just a baby. I see gold metals around her neck in the future. Look out Katie Ledecky!

 

Ssshhhh. I'm not supposed to be here. If I don't move they may think I'm a stuffed toy

Remi is a mischievous young un’. She likes to tease her humans, the Geezer, Mrs G. and … me! She’s learning. And she’s very smart. Mr. R says she’s too smart! If Remi knows there is something off-limits to her, naturally, that’s the thing she wants to do. She usually finds a way. Like the picture above. She claims she’s camouflaged for just such occasions.

If I’m around her enough, I’m sure I can impart some canine wisdom in her. The picture below is proof. My lecture was on how to train your humans to bring treats to you. It went like this — “Take a load off. Lay down. Look bored. But, still look cute. Adorable works better. Give them a big doggy smile. Wag you tail to reward them when they feed you. It works.”

 

 

"Remi, lay down, relax, let the humans bring the treats to us." She's learning.
