He wants a "protectof" dog, but not a really, really "protectof" dog. ::) ::)
So, he wants a semi-protectof dog?   :D

Hon, I'm so sorry!  This situation just, for lack of a better word, sucks.  But like everybody says, it does eventually get better.  You know I am around if you need anything, or to talk or just vent.

I don't think we'll be entering this one.  This picture pretty much says everything you need to know about the windows to Ranger's soul. I'd like to think he is just squinting because of the flash, but we all know this is the look of a dog who is saving up to drag a pair of underwear out into the living room to chew the next time I have someone over.

However, if this was the "Best Eyebrows" catagory, we'd have it in the bag!

Oh, I am so sorry!  There was just something about that sweet little face...  You did right by him while he was here and he was one lucky and loved boy.

John, I don't have any connections, but I will keep my eyes and ears open down here in So. Cal.  If you remember, Ranger dislikes other large dogs, so I can't take her myself, but I will do whatever else I can to help out.

I also know only the bare minimum about Alaskan Malamute vs. Siberian Husky, but I am going to vote Siberian husky on this one.  I know that the ears are different between the breeds, and those ears just look Siberian to me...  I am probably wrong, though...

For your reading pleasure - my evening thus far...

Tonight when I got home from work I let both dogs outside and joined them in the back yard to take the night air.  (OK, actually to clean up poop.)  Gwen gets down to business and Ranger is just wandering around the yard staring at the sky and eating grass.  So now I am cleaning poop AND yelling at Ranger not to eat grass.

By the time I am done cleaning the poop, Ranger still hasn't gone.  This isn't entirely out of the ordinary, since Ranger is very fussy about going out in the yard and is basically like a poop/pee camel when he wants to be.  He stores it up for when the time is just right. 

I let dogs inside, take the trash and the poop bag up to the dumpster and come back inside to vacuum.  As I am vacuuming, Ranger starts running through the house.  To me this behavior could mean "Wheeee, I love the vacuum, c'mon vacuum, let's play" or "Eeeek, a vacuum.  I must flee."  I apparently don't speak the dialect of dog in which this means "Hey mommy, I am about to barf up all that grass I recently ate all over the carpet that you just vacuumed."  So, I miss the signal and that proceeds to happen.  All over the carpet I just vacuumed. 

Ranger goes outside, and I clean up the carpet.  When I go to let him back in what do I see?  Yes, NOW he has pooped the massive stored-up poop he has been holding all day all over the yard I just cleaned.  Not just one pile, but a "walking" poop.  You know what I mean.  A "traveling" poop.

What has Gwen been doing this whole time?  Nothing bad really.  Just being normal Gwen - wandering around looking at the house like she has never seen it before, standing directly where I need to be, walking right through the barf, and just generally getting in my way.  Finally, I get fed up with her and put her outside too.  Where she starts eating grass.

And after all this is done I go in the kitchen and notice I left the lid to the trash can on the counter.  As I pick it up to put it back on the trash can, I accidentally push the thingy that opens the lid and the lid shoots up and whacks me in the boob.  Hard.

I think I am officially over tonight.   ;)

That is just horrifying.  I was at the dog park once, with my Cabo when he was alive, and some guy tried to take him from the dog park!  The guy was petting him and then just bent over and clipped a leash to his collar and started walking out of the park.  Of course, I was watching my dog, so I saw the whole thing and flew at him like a rabid weasel.  What is wrong with people?

I hope that Annie is okay and not too traumatized.  I agree with mastiffmomoftw o - Mr. Foot should have taken an accidental visit to Crotchtown.

So sorry you had to go through this - thank God you were right there...

He is SO cute.  I just want to give him a big cuddle!

It looks good - you did a great job!  I wish I was brave enough to dye mine myself.  My red fades so fast I feel like I want new color every three weeks practically!

For what it is worth, I like the base color a lot.  The highlights are a little orange-y, though.  Of course, considering some of the reds I have had in my hair, I may not be the most balanced opinion...  :D

That is SO frustrating!  Just keep repeating "I am doing a good thing, and there are people in this world that appreciate it.  I am doing..."

Update - he is totally fine.  Fine enough to pull the bathroom trash out of the corner and have a go at it while I was in the shower this morning.  ::)

Thanks, all.  He's acting totally fine so far.  And, yes, he IS a dork!
