Observations from (arguably) the World's Smartest Dogs;
(but, without question, the bestest friends!)
or, Life As We Understand It, as told from dad's shop.

Those Crazy Critters! (vol. IX)

A Compilation


Yeah ... they're still my kids ... and ... without question, the bestest of friends!


It appears that the folks that came up with these pictures think the same of their Bupps!  The things that those of us that are owned by pets put up with!!


Number 6 is pretty dog gone deep when you think about it!  Almost every interaction (at least the initial one) between you and your Bupp is a "leap of faith", or at least a "great adventure" - our Bupps are ALWAYS up for an adventure!


Maybe this is the lesson that we take away today ... trust your friends and your buddies - take that leap of faith with them and embark on your next Great Adventure!!!!

Some (other) things To Think On ...


There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.

Jawaharlal Nehru



If you have something to say, then say it.  If not, enjoy the silence while it lasts.  The noise will return soon enough.  In the meantime, you’re better off going out into the big, wide world, having some adventures and refilling your well.  Trying to create when you don’t feel like it is like making conversation for the sake of making conversation.

Hugh Macleod



The most beautiful adventures are not those we go to seek.

Robert Louis Stevenson



It is a sadness of growing older that we lose our ardent appreciation of what is new and different and difficult.

Elizabeth Aston



Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop.

Lewis Carroll



And a Deep One (courtesy of Mr. Bubb)!



Nothing says, 'I have no idea what to get you,' quite like giant beige bath towels.

Miss B Haven



(Think on that last one a while! … Then go ahead and have another beer!!!)
