Thanks guys. Shiner is very happy to know that he's in such great company on the short bus. If only he could jump in it as it drives by.
Stella, I'm not accurate on throwing anything. I can throw stuff hard and usually pretty straight but I have found out that innocent bystanders get hurt around me. Hence the reason I'm never innocent or the bystander.
I'm not really sure if it's their dog or their son's dog that they are keeping for him. They used to keep a black lab for their son while he was out of town but it was relegated to a dog run at the back of the yard. This one seems to have free run of their yard.
