Thankful Thursday


Today I am thankful for English Pointers who pose for Christmas cards, wood stoves to keep out the chill, and hot, hot coffee. 

"Dogs are our link to paradise.  They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent.  To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring - it was peace."  

Milan Kundera 

Linking up with Madge today......

  2. Our dog doen't have cute antlers like that but she does bark at the things that do have them and chases them for a few yards until they leave her in their dust. What would she do if she ever caught one?

  17. What a good dog! Once I looked out on the deck and there stood my great dane with a wreath around his neck. He'd been messing with a discarded wreath and got it stuck on his neck. I got a photo.. funny memories.
