I REALLY Want a Puppy!

Scottish Deerhound
Ch. Foxcliffe Hickory Wind

In honor of the Westminster Dog Show I thought I would share about my love for dogs {but I'll admit that I'm a dog snob and I only love certain breeds of dogs but like many others}! 

I love Basset Hounds.  If I could get a puppy right now I think I would get a Basset Hound.  How can you resist a Basset?  Those long droopy ears, wrinkles and that face!  I had a Basset Hound from the time I was in 5th or 6th grade until the year after I graduated from college.  Her name was Bailey and she was a "Red and White" Basset.  She was the cutest but dumbest dog ever.  I loved her! 

At some point in my life I would like to have a Bernese Mountain Dog.  I think this breed is so beautiful and the puppies are SUPER adorable.  How could you not love this fluff ball?  When I was in high school we had a stray dog who started visiting us.  He was big and black and white all over.  We didn't know what breed he was but he most resembled a Bernese so that is when I first fell in love with this breed.  I named the dog "Ralph" b/c when I called the number on his tag (which ended up being the vet) they said the owner was Ralph and the dog was "Sniffy."  Sniffy?  Really?  Who names their big, lovable dog Sniffy?  So Ralph it was.  He visited regularly and even came in the house.  He was best buddies with Bailey!

Another one of my favorite dogs is the Irish Setter.  We had an Irish Setter named Molly when I was little.  My parents got her before I was born and she lived until I was 10 or 11?  She was a proud mama twice with two larger litters of puppies.  She was such a good dog!  My Nana and Grampy took one of her puppies and named her Sarah and my grandfather took one of her puppies and named her Rayleigh.  I think Irish Setters make awesome family dogs so if I ever have a family maybe I'll have to get one!

Who doesn't love a Golden Retriever?  I've never had a Golden but use to walk one when I was younger.  Her name was Shamrock and she was the BEST dog!  I loved taking her for walks (I volunteered to do it b/c I liked her so much but then the owner started paying me - added bonus)!  I don't think you can go wrong with a Golden.  They are great companions, great w/ kids, smart and so pretty.  

Oh and I can't leave out Neely!  Neely is a Yellow Lab and she belongs to my brother, Timmy and his family.  She is now 4 months old and quite the character.  I'm sure you've seen some of the pictures I've posted.  If you have seen the movie or read the book, Marley and Me, then you will know what she is like!  She has been know to unroll the toilet paper from the bathroom, steal tissues from the box, steal money from my dad's wallet, eat my Valentine, somehow get up on the dryer, sleep on the computer desk, ride in the kid's car seat in the car, and so many other funny and silly things.  This dog has brought a lot of joy to our family (my dad is obsessed with her and has told me if I get a dog he will take care of it in the winter and I can have it in the summer when my parents are on the Cape where no dogs are allowed)!  Not so sure I like that deal!  Haha!

Someday in my near future I hope to have a dog.  I know I'll have a hard time picking which one to get but at least I have some great favorites to choose from!

P.S.  One of these days I'll see if I can dig out pictures of Molly, Bailey and Ralph and scan them so I can post them on my blog!!

  24. It is, of course, summer Down Under, though air-conditioning will ensure conditions in the Perth Arena, home of the Masteracard  Hopman Cup, will be tolerable for players and fans alike.

    The Hopman Cup has become the traditional pipe-opener to the new ATP and WTA Tours but its future is in doubt if new sponsorship can not be found.

    The Hopman Cup has become an important warm-up event for players ahead of the new season and has a format unlike any other major international team tennis tournament. It’s a mixed competition which sees male and female players play on combined teams in singles and a doubles matches. The players are invited, not selected by their national federations, but obviously organisers want the biggest names they can attract.

    Seven countries are selected to compete alongside hosts Australia and are separated into two groups of four (with two teams being seeded) they then play against each of the other three teams in their group in a round-robin format. The top team in each group meet in the final to decide the champions.

    Hopman Cup History
    Now staged at the Perth Arena having been moved from the Burswood Dome in 2012, the tournament is named in honour of great Australian doubles player and coach Harry Hopman and attracts big crowds. The United States have won it more times than any other country and have also been beaten finalists on six occasions, including in two of the last four years. Hosts Australia have won it twice, the last time in 2016 when they had two teams entered.

  25. As a pet lover, with the use of a "cat carrier trust," a relatively new device in the pet animal estate planning, you can make specific provisions for the care of your pets in the event of your disability or death, and provide for a reliable caretaker and funding arrangement, all legally enforceable by the courts, thus effectively assuring that in the event of any such emergency, your pets will not likely wind up in the shelter or the pound.
