Praise God from whom all Blessings flow!

My dogs don’t pose…lol
but they are full of the “devil”….lol

A Funny Tale…..

My husband has had this huge flat trailer in our back yard…loaded with all manner of stuff.

My doggies must be chained in the back yard….they love the out doors….but will jump the fence and wander….and since they have a bit of wolf in them…and and are not really used to “society manners”…it is safer for them….to be constrained.

Well, Ms. Dolly (the little black one, and Diamond’s granddaughter)….could reach the trailer and for about 2 years….has enjoyed being “Queen of the Mountain” and hunting, Lord only knows what….in the pile….under tarps….on the trailer.  Many times she would get her cable  “hung up” on something or other…and being a hyper type doggie….would about kill me ….as I tried to “free her”.    She would do it again ….over and over….and  over and over….

We are in the process of “cleaning up and moving out”  all this excessive stuff….my hubby has accumulated in our 29 years here….and plan to put the place on the market and move in about two years.  In view of this….the trailer of “Mountain stuff”…had to go.

Now my dearest Ms. Dolly….gets attached to things and loves things and her heart ….is big as all outdoors.  And….this trailer Mountain…was her very bestest friend….after her Grandmother of course.

And so she has mourned.  This Mountain is where she caught…who knows how many…. bugs…frogs…chased a cat or two …and the latest….found an armadillo.   She loved her Mountain.

She fussed as my husband and son pulled it out of the back yard…and she has been laying up by the back door…chin to the ground….facing the “place” where the Mountain used to be…and sighing.  Over and over again….sighing.

Although I know her grief is real,  I am sure she will eventually get over it….even if I have to get a bucket of toads and unleash them in the back yard for her to hunt.

It’s the little things after all…that are blessings….dogs…”mountains” and a toad or two.
