About Me

My photo
Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.

Great White Hunter


Thought some of you dog lovers might enjoy an update from Chet the wild boy.  He's now 10 months old, about 65-70 lbs, and a handful.  These photos were taken in the park and he was getting ready to scale this tree to get at this amazing "growth" about 7ft. up the tree.  When I adopted him was told he is a border collie/husky mix.  However, have decided that some other guy with black ticking must have caught border collie mom's eye. :-)


And here he is at favorite indoor spot--lying under the book stack table.  Although, I expect any day for him to get stuck there.  Just like Roommate, stuck beween the pages of a book.

TWG, that's what I'm thinking too--especially when he wears his ears down instead of perked out in inverted triangles. His bark is not a hound's "AH-ROOOO!" though.

How did he even see that? Does he ever manage to get really high up?

Chet is certainly packing some muscle . He also looks mighty handsome. I love his clean white paws and (neat) nails

LOL! He's a handsome young pup!

I agree with Tex -- there's got to be some coon hound in that boy! xo
