All Balls

All Balls


I love dogs, well animals in general. We have 6 acres and in the last 26 years we have had horses (as many as 8, now down to 1), ducks, chickens, rabbits, dogs (as many as 5 and now 3), cats (too many to count), fish, hamsters, goats, turtles and various other species that were not welcomed - snakes and rats,(TEXAS size rats), field mice, spiders, skunks, coyotes, frogs, lizards..etc..
Living in the country offered us a life many other don't experience.

A couple of weeks ago, a co-worker asked me if I would be interested in a dog. WHAT - another one?
Well, what kind, how old, girl/boy...blah blah blah.....

Her name is SOLO (we renamed her from Precious) She is an 18month old chocolate lab. She is gorgeous. She belonged to my co-worker's niece. Her husband was unexpectedly deployed and he leaves behind his wife and 4 kids (all under the age of 11) The kids, work, single parenting has grown to be too much for her. She felt she had to give the dog away, (as opposed to the kids)
sooooooooooooooooooo guess who was willing take her?


She is beautiful and needless to say my huntin' huband is thrilled. She does retrieve - a little - and is very loving. My two other dog babies - Samantha and Cappy - are being very protective right now - but I think she will fit in just fine.

Welcome home - SOLO - welcome home


  1. Awww! What a pretty dog! I love animals and would LOVE to rescue a kitty cat. But, we rent and our landlord is a meanie and wont let us have one. :(
