Owen is like the Energizer Bunny..with an overbite...

He just keeps on going and going!

"Dog's Expressions"

Last month, as you may remember, he won the Second Place ribbon for "Most Handsomest Dog in Lake Havasu City", where his Mom, my sister, Kathy lives.

Well, as some of you can also remember, Owen has a thing for adventure... exploring Southern Arizona for 4 days and 3 nights...

..for finding his way to a safe home and a nice man and a brave Great Dane that saved him from an attacking coyote..

Well, Kathy being the non-dummie that she is, decided it may be time for little Owen to go to school and learn some rules and "sit" and "stay"..

.. and "dammit Owen, come back here... NOW "

"well, since I can't trust you... Polo will have to walk you on a leash"

So off they went, Kathy excited, Owen grudgingly, to Obedience School.

When Kathy first mentioned it to him, he thought she was already pretty obedient, but what the heck, everyone can stand some improvement.

When he found out it was for HIM...well, that shined a whole new light on the word "obedience",  huh Owen?

Kathy worked, studied, did homework and Owen watched...

But little by little, Owen joined in..and whaddyaknow..

They he graduated with honors...well, with this ribbon anyway.

Yep, I don't know who is prouder...oh who am I kidding?  

Good going, Owen.Good going, Kathy...we're all  proud of you.

And all of our healing thoughts to my Grand-dog, Marley, after his operation to get his..uh.. get fixed...{poor little guy didn't even know he was broken..}

"I'm feeling a bit...woooozy.."

"You did WHAT??"

Oh no...say it ain't so..?? Oh no..
Happy Healing Marley!

Haven't been to any blogs in a lonnnnnng time; but, I just had to come by today and see what you had to say about Owen. Isn't he just the cutest guy? Well, ONE of the cutest (don't want to hurt the feelings of Braxton, Casey, Gus or Tommy, eh?).

Marley is adorable, also. Where do we get all these super-cute pups?

Cute post, as usual. Love ya.

Obedience School - that's what Gracie needs. Poor Marley! That pic with her paw over hear eyes, and the caption, is too, too funny. You know I love your sense of humor. I just read a book I know you will like: "there's a (slight) chance i might be going to hell" by Laurie Notaro. The heroine sounds a lot like you!
