    Boo gets along great with one eye. I’m always easily entertained and delighted to see his antics!
    You usually road trip for Thanksgiving. Are you up for more traveling this year?

    • JD Dallager Says:

      Libby: Couldn’t agree more!

      The Boomeister has a real zest for life… doubt encouraged and magnified by PO’G, Herself and the rest of Rancho Pendejo Menagerie.

      An early Happy (safe) Thanksgiving to all!

      The Boo loves chilly weather. When it’s warm he’s a slug on his walks, but put the temps down in the 40s or below and he’s a iive wire.

      One of these days I need to shoot some video of him rounding the corner to home. Our place in Duke City sits at the bottom of a cul-de-sac, with a steep, short driveway, and the Boo uses all of it as he hangs a high-speed, uphill left-hander off the sidewalk toward the front door. It’s hysterical.

      As regards road trips, we were invited to my sister’s place for T-day, but that’s an eight-hour drive, and if all goes well with the sale of Chez Dog I’ll need to make a couple trips to Bibleburg and back to empty the joint out for its new owners. So we decided to stay put this year. How about you?

    The Boo is the man!

  3. Jon Paulos Says:

    Yeah, what Libby said. With all the Boo has been through, he remains full of vim and vigor. You two have clearly done right by the guy.

    Thanksgiving here in York Pee Ay involves enough driving to pick up the daughter at the train station, then parking it for the duration. Any other errands? Eh, that’s why we have children. Though I just put the finishing touches on the no-name Spanish cross bike and might have to try it out that weekend.

    HMM Strange there is a bile in your living room.

    I got me one of them Jap dog fur hounds…. He’s a bit younger than yourin’ dear mutt. They sure can corner fast. He stepped into a cat-ruled estate when he first arrived as a youngster and fit right in with the claw monsters. It was a delight to see him run circles around in the living trying to rile up our big white male cat. After several loops of the racetrack, the big white cat would figure out that he’s the lion king of the jungle and needed to take down the fleeting gazelle to prove his dominance….. But the Chin-ster was a bit too fast for the old feline and loved every minute of the chase…… Sadly, all the cats have since exited to their 10th lives and the mutt must now make due with sprints in the park with an aging old cyclist…..

    Have a great Thanksgiving and cheers to good health and happiness to you and your menagerie….

      You have one of these frog-eyed little weirdos cluttering up your area of operations, Shawn? Got a pic? Herself loves the little devils. She hooked up with a Chin rescue outfit back in Bibleburg, and we met another fancier shortly after moving here — a woman who used to breed them, and apparently hoard ’em, while collecting Chin memorabilia out the ying-yang.

      I have some video around here of Mister Boo doing hot laps around the back yard in Bibleburg. I’ll see if I can resurrect it. You’re right about their cornering ability. Makes a flat-track moto racer look like a fat kid on a trike.

    Margaret and Helen strike again.
