"How lucky I am to have known someone who was so hard to say goodbye to."

Well, I don't know what the heck is going on, exactly. All I know is that SWMBO has been C-R-A-N-K-Y and M-O-O-D-Y and, well, you get the picture.

It all started when we took the journey to KC last Thursday for the Chapter meeting. I thought we were having a grand time! I got to see all my buds, Feldon and Clark and Orella and Lassiter, and even Vance's person, who dropped by, a delightful surprise!

My buds!

But it all fell apart, because it was Lassiter's "good-bye" party and I guess SWMBO just really got tuned in to the reality of that. She was a mess! And embarrassing! Mooning all over Lassiter and having him do laps and calling him her "favorite" dog. Like, what am I? Chopped liver? (Did you ever wonder why humans say that? I think it would be wonderful to be a big bowl full of chopped liver. But I digress....)

You might know that Lassiter spent a few weeks here back in the summer with Ansel. Reading that blog, it sure sounds like those two had some wild adventures! And during that time, Lassiter just wormed his way right into SWMBO's heart. Well, all I can say is that SWMBO has been S-A-D thinking about the fact that Lassiter is moving on. Geez, these humans are slow. You think they would understand what this assistance-dog-thing is all about after 13 years!

I guess you get special treats at goodbye parties!

See what I mean?

If TBG and I are going to make it through the next few days, I think we need a secret plan. And that plan is: left-over baklava! HA! That will make SWMBO feel better!

These two are funny, no doubt about it...a whole barrel of monkeys, they are!


  1. I feel for you Carver. But I'm sorry to tell you that SWMBO might be like this for a long while. (My Girl is still CRAZY about Hosta and talks about a lot! And he wasn't even her dog.) Humans! Will we ever understand them?

  2. Loved getting to see you guys and getting to say goodbye to Lassiter too. What a special pup he'll be for someone!

  3. Dear Pups.....

    Don't try to understand humans. They are a different breed and very complex and prone to excesses of all kinds. Stay simple and true to your mission. Enjoy the affection and kindness of the humans but under no conditions try to understand them!
