Strider and Thump

Thump (on the left) often comes over for a visit.

Here they are, collectively begging for a Treat!

My Thanksgiving Dinner!

This picture was posted on my Granddaughters facebook page!

Thanksgiving Dinner

Apparently Strider was going from person to person under the table.

Although he sometimes will lie under the table at dinner, he NEVER is allowed to beg.  And we NEVER give him food at the table.  Or so I thought.

It is no coincidence that he never came near me at the table!

My Amazing Brown Dog!!

Strider - The Amazing Brown Dog!

This morning as I was getting dressed Strider picked up my fluffy polka dot sock and started to slink away with it (he still takes things and runs off with them).  I stopped him.."Strider, drop it!"...he just looked at me (I know he was wondering if he could get away from me before I could get to him)...."Drop it!!"  and he did.

This is not the amazing part.

I put the sock on and went to pick up the other one but it was missing.  I turned to Strider, pointed to my sock and said "Go get it. Bring it to me"  He got all excited and ran off.

Then he came back with my other sock in his mouth!!


Well, I am impressed!

He must be really smart and is hindered in his capacity only by his!

Bad Bad LeRoy Brown!

OK, so his name is not LeRoy!

But he's bad.
And he's brown.

no words necessary

What is the matter with my Dog?

He has taken to dragging clay pots (sometimes complete with dirt and quite  heavy) into the yard and chewing them up!~

This is major bad on a gardeners patio!
And not so good for my dog either.

I'm Beautiful!!

Funny thing,  I don't think he even knows how beautiful he is!

Strider likes to lie on the rug in the hall.
I think he decorates up the house just by his presence! 

Finally, Strider is better about:
Not chewing up everything, every minute.
Not being so sneaky that I need to keep my eye on him constantly.
Not trying to get the cats to play with him all the time (much to their annoyance).

So, I can let him out and about the house more.

Strider wants to join me for Tea.

Hard to resist those puppy dog eyes.

Striders First Christmas

This was Striders first Christmas with us!
He came to us in Feb. at 4 months old.

He is playing with his Christmas present.

On Christmas morning he went to the Christmas tree to sniff around.  He found his huge chewy bone right off the bat!  He picked it up and ran with it!!  We had to go get it and unwrap it for him. 
 He loves it.

Strider is such a great dog.  
He doesn't have a mean bone in his body.  He is so loveable.  He is a glutton for attention.  I tell people "don't make eye contact with him if you don't want to pet him"!!

I highly recommend English Labradors for pets.  They are the best!!
