What a Dog Teaches a Boy

"A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverance, 
and to turn around three times before lying down."  

 -- Robert Benchley

  2. Great quote - and a good smile, from me!

  3. Thanks for stopping by Sharon, I know it's hard for you right now, so I appreciate it a bunch! Glad you got a smile out of it! (:

  4. Hi, I enjoyed my visit here and will be back!

  5. Hi there Ms.-K, , I'm glad you enjoyed my blog! Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi Lisa, thank you also, and thanks for visiting!

  6. That picture is just adorable, and the quote fits perfectly!

  7. Oh Karen,
    When I opened your blog to see what you were all about I fell in love-- totally. I love that quote and the photo you showed and your dogs are so precious. I actually didn't know what a Gordan Setter was but I do now...they are adorable!
    well, great minds think alike, don't they? (regarding Theresa's Blue Bonnet comment :) Thanks for hanging out at my place and I'm also glad I found a new place to hide out! :)
    what did you think of the Author's site? I never in my wildest dreams ever thought I'd write a book so I still have to pinch myself :)

  8. Thank you Tracy! That's my grandson, Kaleb, in the pic with our last litter of puppies. A lot of people don't know what Gordons are so the blog really helps. They are incredible bird hunters and wonderful family dogs. Personalities are similar between Goldens and Gordons.
    I thought your Author site was very nice, bright, and informative. I think a few more pics of Hurricane would be nice. He's so handsome! I'm going on vacation in about 3 weeks. Would it be possible to purchase an autographed copy and get it before April 26? I'd love to have for my vacation, just tell me how to make it happen.

  9. Hello - Thank you for visiting my blog and your kind comments. I thought I'd pop in and see what your blog is all about. I like it! Love the Robert Benchley quote. I'll be back.

  10. Thank you for the visit.

    And this post is beautiful. It looks like Kalib has his hands full.

  11. Thank you Teresa!(: That's my grandson and he's a great kid. Hey, I wonder if the same could be said about goats? lol

    Montanagirl, Thanks for visiting and signing up too! We have the whole state of Montana between us, but lots to share! I'm looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful photos.

    Thanks Abe, Yes, Kaleb did have his hands full! Almost more puppy love than he could take!lol

  12. That is a great picture! I firmly agree,all boys need a dog...or two!
