Well sorry about all the pooper pics everyone. The squirmy little niglet is tough to get a grip on. and get a decent pic of. I am getting mauled and eaten as I try to type this.
Filthie Family Lore has it that Pa Filthie (my dad, currently 81 years old) got his first pup when he was a tot back in the 40's. First thing Grampa Filthie did was put the pup up on the kitchen table - an bob its tail on a cheese board with a bread knife!!!
I will continue the family tradition as it was handed down to me by my forefathers, and as it was to them!!! Off with your tail, Hannah!!! HAR HAR HAR!!!
Okay... no I am not going to bob her tail or cut her ears off or anything like that. She's just perfect the way she is. She will get spayed though - Pete and Cederq are handy surgeons, dentists and veteranarians and their rates are reasonable! HAR HAR HAR!!!!
Gawd, I am such a rotten chit!!!
We had our first bath in the sink and now she's huddled up beside me under a towel trying to warm up and dry out. It was a very scarey experience but she's kinda sorta clean now.
Our toilet training success rate is already at 50%. Last night we were up with the birds and coyotes. The yodellers started singing, and my little girl started growling. She loves dogs and people but hates yodellers. Mort does too.
Probly her last bath in the sink...
Drying out after a scarey bath bender...
I know... there is nothing more BORING than people talking about their pets. We'll get back to our regular chit/tard/rude joke-poasting right away. I will poast her progress as she assumes her rightful place on my K9 crime-fighting team... her first tard kill, her mauling of senior delinquents, coyote kills... etc. The important stuff!!!
We are having a truly magnificent Sunday here and we hope you are as well.
Glad for you your new happiness. Dogs are the best!ReplyDelete
Oh! She is a cutie! What a nice pup, glad you got her!ReplyDelete
Glen, we must be twins from different mothers, I too am as bald and dome shaped with facial hair as you are, Lord have Mercy as the doppelgangers have been cut loose!ReplyDelete
Dawgs are the best part of life. Enjoy.ReplyDelete
Please keep us posted on her journey through life. I shall enjoy them vicariously, as I can't have dawgs any more. Long story.
Thanks Glen. Great pictures and color commentary.
You have a loving friend for life, you are both blessed.ReplyDelete
Boring??? Puppy pics? You just watch your stat counter go through the roof here. We're 'specially interested in which piece of furniture is destroyed first. Or shoes. Or...... Puppy teeth are razor sharp; ours could saw through a nylon leash in seconds. I think that's how they get weaned... when they start nipping momma's titties.ReplyDelete
I still remember a work buddy who got a black lab pup. He came to work one afternoon shaking his head "I'm too old to raise a puppy!" He was all of about 46 at the time.
I wish I had enough time left for a pup.ReplyDelete
Damn, she's a sweetheart Glen.ReplyDelete
I had me a black lab retriever sort of like that when I was a teenager. Raised her from when she was a puppy. She was a natural hunter - being a bird dog was in her blood. Unfortunately, she came down with some sort of weird cancer and I had to put her down. She lived to about 14 or so. Had a great life.
They're great dogs that make great company. Enjoy her!
Excellent. Very happy for you!ReplyDelete
Adorable puppy! Black Labrador?ReplyDelete
I I would like to mock you for many things. Your love of dogs trumps them all. Now go rub some corn starch on that shiny thing above your bushy eyebrows.ReplyDelete
She will give you more love than you can receive. Rub her ears for me.ReplyDelete
Nice looking pooch. I read your blog everyday. DSReplyDelete
The look on your mug says it all!ReplyDelete
try warmer water. had a pup long ago who would stay in the tub all day if the water was warm. that is a fine looking pup !ReplyDelete
again, wishing you many fine years ahead for all of you.
and dog people love to hear about other people dogs. more so than kids anyway.
It's all good. Love some pup pics. Just don't exceed the gushing quota LOL.ReplyDelete
Somebody as ugly as you needs a good lookin-lookin’ dog!ReplyDelete
You should warn us, you gonna post pictures of yourself. Juss sayin.
Your Chinese food seems to be undercooked.ReplyDelete
Yay Mort has his very own puppy! There's nothing more fun than starting a fresh one. I've been visiting here long enough to feel like I know you and I mourned Macy with along with y'all Glen. Have a great week!ReplyDelete
PUPPY BREATH , damm and the journey begins again.ReplyDelete
Waving a greeting from sunny south Texas. Well done, GF. Very well done.ReplyDelete
What a sweetie. Our big guy, jethro, was that small. He’s 95 lbs of solid muscle now. Cute pup!ReplyDelete
Life renewing itself, man.ReplyDelete

Ah yes there is a sweet girl photo!ReplyDelete
That is a cute puppy! Ma and Pa had one just like her, her name was Bess. Enjoy your time together, she's a bundle of fun and love with a waggy tail!ReplyDelete
Old and Peculier
Congrats on the new pup! Many adventures await you all.ReplyDelete
that's just great! well done! looks like my bella, black lab & bloodhound (picture hannah with size xxl ears ;))ReplyDelete
As i have lost some over my years, there is always that moment when you think to yourself, I cannot go through that again...ReplyDelete
But one comes around that needs some help, and you know instinctively at least for this one, I can do something.
And we do.
And you have here.
God bless you and your pup.
You and Mort are going to need new levels of energy!
Awwwww How sweet she is!!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful pup! An yea the pic with mort looks like he's smiling...ReplyDelete
Nothing like the love of a dog. After the puppy raising of course.
