  • AS always a well enjoyed PITA story. When I read her possible breeding I had to chuckle out loud. What a wonderful creature she seems to be. I know I find her to be a joy to read about. Perhaps she should have her own blog, it may encourage younger readers to turn in and read the paper.

  • Hmmm, her own blog...... I'll mention it to her. We'll see what internet fame does to her.

    She is a wonderful dog except..... Well, I hope to enjoy her even more as she matures.

  • I may have spoken too fast about PITA's self control with deer OR she may be even smarter than I think.

    I saw a flash of white-tail deer fly through the yard and PITA (et al) in hot pursuit. All going to the right.

    Less than 5 minutes later the regular doe and baby came into the yard from the left (opposite side of where the others exited) PITA and the others looked at them and thebn calmly came into the greenhouse. No worries mate.

    Do they know the difference between deer and only chased the others because we did not have an "agreement" with them? Hmmmmm.

  • A side note, we had a very polite young man stop by to see if he could hunt. You can guess our response but I was quite impressed with his manners. He had come by during turkey season as well.

  • ha she sounds like my husbands new pup he adopted while i was in Texas caring for my mom.. he is a blue Heeler mix.. this pup.. is now 80 lbs and 5-6 months old.. he is into everything... and is such a ham. he is indeed a pain in the bumm too. he almost knocks me over with his enthusiasm for life and fun. My foot has been operated on and i am gimpy so when Jeep wants to get playful i need to really watch out. He will chew on ANY thing. I need to keep it up high if i do not want it destroyed..had to distract him from the throw rug this morning. They are alot of fun though.. better get to building that permenate covering for the wood. ha ha..

  • I keep hoping she has grown out of it, but just when I do, she pulls something else.

    I agree, they are fun, but I wish we had been able to channel her energy towards her toys instead of things we want intact.

  • Steve, I have 3 adult dogs and 1 juvenile that have literally taken an interest in throwing me out of the power position. The very large black lab "Rusty" hasn't believed in humans for over two years now, as he thinks of us as endentured servants. The little dogs need therapy ... badly' They are currently trying to desperately to communicate with my inner voices and I'm starting to agree with what my inner voices are saying. Should I be worried?

  • I'm worried Tim so maybe you should be too!

    A black Lab called Rusty? He might have an identity crisis, but I am not too good at Canine Psychology. PITA has stretched my abilities to the breaking point.

    Now about those "inner voices".........
