Dear Kids,

I asked my website-reading friends about their dogs. These pictures and explanations are about their dogs.

Here are my two new puppies. They are 3 months old, so that is very young. The little black one just learned how to “shake hands” today. I have been trying to teach her that trick for only three days, so she is pretty smart. Her name is Simone-Sunisa. The other puppy’s name is Molly. Molly hasn’t learned to “shake” yet.
We try to train them each day. We work on “sit”, “down”, “Stay” “release”. It’s neat that they learn tricks but we mainly want them to be good citizens.
These pups are Australian Shepherds and that is a very active breed so it is important that the girls learn to listen to us.
The cat in the picture is named Bijou Lisette. She likes to play with the little black puppy.

Pepper is a 2-year-old Blue Heeler. His favorite thing is running in water with his human Harlow❤️

I love terriers, and dogs that have beards. This is my dog Jackpot. He is a 4-year-old Welsh Terrier.

This is Pete. He looks like the Little Rascals dog. He weighs 100 pounds but jumps up to sit in your lap because he thinks he is small! He also tries to catch rabbits by tracking their smell with his nose to the ground. The rabbits sit in plain view across the yard watching him. He does not catch them.

Here's my dog, Buster. He loves people! He also likes to dig. Can you tell? He's supposed to be all light yellow, but he was trying to follow a chipmunk down it's tunnel in the ground through some red Georgia clay.

 

Some facts about dogs:

  • Scientists believe that dogs’ sense of smell is up to 100,000 times better than humans sense of smell! Can you even say that number?
  • You should never feed a dog chocolate. Chocolate can make them very sick.
  • Dogs noses are wet to absorb scent chemicals. They have mucus glands in their nose which absorb scent chemicals and gives dogs their amazing sense of smell.

 

The Great Dane is the tallest dog in the world. They can grow up to nearly 4 feet tall

 The English mastiff is the heaviest dog in the world, it can weigh 200-230 pounds.

 Scientists know that dogs have been companions to people for thousands of years. They think dogs were domesticated from wolves into dogs 20,000 to 40,000 years ago! Some people say that humans trained wild wolves to become dogs.  Other people think maybe dogs trained wild people to become loving and faithful people!

"Can your dog talk?" "Sure! What's on top of the house?" "Roof!" "Why does he walk in a circle before he sits down?" "He's a watchdog, and he's winding himself up!" "Got anything else?" "Outside of a dog, a book's a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

Buster is very pleased to see his picture in your letter and to learn there's a whole class of 3rd graders who know about him. He wishes he could meet them in person.

A few Ideas for Gifts & Presents

One of my favorite lines this year: “Our family does Christmas cards at 20 paces.” (I apologize that I don’t remember the author.)

Three Things 12022021

12/2/2021

I’ve had so many interesting thoughts in the past ten days. These thoughts have whirled into my mind, swirled in circles like a canoer too dazzled by the beauty of the terrain to think about what that roaring sound is – and then whoosh over the waterfalls of my brain to disappear. Such is adult life.

Coming & Going

11/18/2021

And just like that, my website is back.

Behind every website are a zillion lines of code. If you want to see what that looks like behind a page you are perusing – do this: On a computer (not on a phone) right click on any segment of a website. A box will open, click on Inspect and that will show you the code being used in that part of that website. You can’t mess with it, but you can see it.

...and we’re home …

Many of you sent emails and notes and we read every single one. Thank you! We loved the photos of where you live and what you are seeing in your world … and Neal, that fish that you caught is BIG!

A very small update on the very big upheaval In Len’s and my life

11/7/2021

We are doing pretty well. Len has 46 staples in his head – the rehab admitting person counted them. Not sure if I wanted to know, but now I do.

His mind, brain, coordination, balance, and motor movements all seem to be exactly the way they always were. Twice he has politely helped the professional therapists who are helping him – unscramble some confusing things on their computers.
