Just getting some work done for my family tonight:

picture of tombstone

This is my godson’s dog, Tulip, who returned from obedience school and appears to not have been properly inflated:

This is my sister Devon with her current foster pup, Milton, who is approximately 62% ears:

He’s very sweet, and his coat is like Boghan’s (my brothers wire haired pointing griffon), but softer and jet black. He is available for adoption if any of you are interested.

I think I speak for everyone when I say we could use some more pictures of Pearl.

    I’m pretty sure her name isn’t Milton. Isn’t that Devon? LOL!

    Oh, and both Tulip and Milton are adorable. The dog, I mean. Not used-to-be Devon.

    Tulip looks like obedience is not for her.

    Tulip looks like following rules is simply exhausting.
    I relate.

    @JPL: Mostly good. My right hand is still carpal-tunnel-y. Apparently that may not go away.

    Milton has stolen my heart (terrier mixes are right up there with Danes in my book). Good thing the house is full.

    My wife has an actual tombstone her parents bought for her back when she was a kid. We’re trying to figure out how to get it from Jonesboro, AR to where we live so we can use it as a Halloween decoration.

    Oh oh. Did Steve try to kill you again, or are you anticipating events?

    And, oh Milton! OMG, he’s so adorable! I **love** his ears. If I were looking for a dog (I’m not) I would definitely be interested.

    Thoroughly pissed off that the dispute between whatever company owns Fox Sports broadcasts is happening now with Directv and so the World Cup final is blacked out tomorrow, the whole channel is offline. Directv is already too effing costly, can’t seem to chrome cast off the Fox Sports app on my iPhone, gah. Seriously 😒

    I wish I could take Milton, but I married into a family of non-pet people, and I think one dog at a time is all I can get away with. Though if I enlist the two girls, maybe I could sway the outcome…

    John, we might be interested in Milton. We lost our elder Spinone in April and the not quite 2 year old Spinone is lonely. At our age we have decided another 90 pounder is unwise. We are in western NC. Who should we contact for more info?
