Familiar spirits

Music, books, movies, TV, games, hobbies, food, and potent potables. And forum games! Pour a drink, put on your smoking jacket, light a pipe (of whatever), and settle in.

Congrats, enjoy your doggo. :)
Well, that was a long walk down a windy beach to a cafe that was closed...

I'm enjoying calling him Bernardo. We can pretend that he's a large mountain dog.

I scared the dog when I farted last night. Dog farts may be rancid but they got nothing on me.

He is the goodest boy!

Looks a lot like a neighbor's Bichon. She was also the goodest girl, and turned me around on curly-haired prissy-looking dogs. Miniature poodles can be neurotic messes, but a good mid-sized (15-30ish lb) Bichon or a full-sized poodle that isn't over/in-bred can be a really good dog that dogs well.

36 hours in and the dog barely eats or drinks yet has marked out territory all over our condo complex and the nearby PetsMart. Where does the liquid come from?

I have taken to calling him Bernardo. He responds to it. If he learned any faster a college admissions office would have to discriminate against him.

Just wait until he starts chewing your furniture and moldings. 😁. Congrats, he's a cutie!

Yesterday our dog saw someone cradling a puppy in her arms. He got so excited it was hard to tear him away.

They're such angels! For instance, yesterday my pup ate my good sunglasses as a appetizer, had his sister's poop for his meal, and a dessert of baseboards. 😂
