I managed to get through Valentine's Day without my little sweetheart, SAM, but he was on my mind a lot. Mark and I had a nice evening in front of the fire with Tator, PixieNoodle, TinkerBelle and yes...GOLIATH! Mark has nver had indoor dogs so my four made it in two years ago because they are hairless but the gentle giant, Gloiath had to worm his way in gently. Because Mark is allergic to hairy dogs, as am I, Goliath stays on his special blanket. This blanket has become the "sumo wrestling:" mat for him and Tator! Remeber, out of all my dogs, she is the oldest, (14), and the tiniest (4.6 lbs.)! It is the CUTEST thing to watch as she does sort of a Mexican hatdance around him, tantalizing him and then he gently pounces. It reminds me of king Kong playing with his blonde "toy".
Don't forget!! The Ugly Dog contest is coming in a few months at the Sonoma-Marin Fair! Mark and I plan to be there with Tator and to represent the memory of our irreplacable, undefeated much beloved SAM. We will also be attending a smaller but similar contest this March in San Diego with Tator.
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day with your sweeties and your pets!
