Our Third GSP Arrived on December 26, 2012 and We Never Looked Back

The day after Christmas, 2012, a Thursday, our 'new guy' was transported from Georgia. Southeast German Shorthaired Pointer  (SE GSP) Rescue picked him up from a Tennessee county shelter so they knew nothing about his history. Time stood still the first weekend GB came to live with us. He ate well the first night but …

Meet Christie — Our Foster Dog

The video shows just how much fun Christie can be. She's wildly curious about cats but has never shown any aggression towards them (we have five that taunt her).

Managing a Ranch

That's another issue I have. Being an only child, I don't like being alone. I didn't like it when growing up and I don't like it now. Guess that's why we have so many animals. I'm never alone anymore; not in the house, the front yard, nor the back yard. Actually my yards are pastures …
