Thanks pal!!! Yeah - Job is is 1 1/2 now :) We were out snowshoeing and he cut his paw on a sharp stick. Five weeks later he is all mended up! I am still going to wait a couple days to ensure his paw toughens up a bit again, but then we will go out with a boot on that paw. We have a social time planned for him with a friend's pooch to celebrate the recovery :)

Sorry to hear about your loss...17 years is a lot of fun and friendship though eh. You must have some great memories. Job is the first canine friend I have ever had - now I cannot imagine being without him. My wife and I just love him, and he brings so much joy to our lives.

Cheers :)

Great shot. Nothing like a dream coming true. I am fortunate with the wealth of these critters where I live. Walking through the forest I can hear their little voices. Job, my canine friend, and I have come across trees covered with them. It feels Christmastime when they perch on an old dead tree to rest for a bit. The Cedar waxwings do well out here too :) I could not count the multitude one day when I came over a ridge near a friend's house on my way to the post office through the woods.
Thanks for sharing!
