    My ol' girl Mindy (Jack Rat terrier) is in the golden years of her life....she'll be 15 this September......

    She used to be a ball of fire up til about a year ago, she's really slowed down. Getting hard of hearing, and also can't see so good anymore. But she's still kicking.

    pics of her during the one big snowstorm in '09

    100_1387.JPG 100_1394.JPG

    We still get a kick out of her at Christmastime as she opens her own presents....and seems to have as much fun with the wrapping paper as she does the toys!!

    100_2121.JPG

    Here she is waiting for her turn in front of the Napoleon 1900p after I was loading it one evening. As soon as you get out of the way, she bellies up to the front of the stove and cooks herself.....

    We had a cat just like yours. He was with us until one night when he failed to come home. Age 17. A very independent cat that kept "all" uninvited critters away. The cat we have now is little better than a house plant.

    Yeah she goes out first thing every morning and goes on patrol around the whole yard. I drag her in at sundown. She thinks she is ten feet tall and bullet proof. And gets real surprised when the bad guys don't back off from her little self.

    btw, magnus's ears are cropped (although the vet didn't do it according to the breed standard book i gave him) and dew claws are removed. people online to give a hard time for it, but, he is a hunting dog (hogs) and they serve a functional purpose since he rushes recklessly into brush and though the woods. ear tears on their big floppy ears and dew claw tears happen, so having them surgically taken care of as a puppy is more humane than the inevitable injury, followed by surgery later on. just wanted to give the disclaimer, since the comments about it are always inevitable.

    on to the cats... here are the two outdoor cats, who have been hanging out inside at night lately. coco is on the right, and the mother of clovis. she is an excellent mouser, and has been spayed since having clovis. clovis on the other hand is in tact, and tries to spread his seed to anything alive... forcefully. she's a little over 2 years old, and he's about 9 months old.

    We have chosen the rat terrier breed this time for their longevity and fifteen years for your Mindy and going strong makes it look like a good choice.

    This picture was taken in 1988. This is a rescue German Shepherd (Sheba) and her first day with us. She decided to make this her home really quick. Pictured with our daughters.

    Our girls liked swimming so Sheba did not hesitate to follow them in full tilt!

    Some pics I have submitted before. My Oggie is getting old and loves the heat from the wood stove or the patio stove, and then my all time favorite of my grand son Trent and his Dog Lady vying for the best spot in front of the wood stove.

    Hang in there buddy. I hope all is well. I'm suffering from burnout with this house remodel but I'm too close to the finish to stop now.....

    We'll be here when you get back to coming around......

    It is a small lake south east of Woss, BC called Frost Lake. It was a well kept family secret. It is not much over 30-40 feet deep and warms up nicely in the summer for pleasant swimming. When you are at the lake, it appears to be clear with no green tint. The far side of the lake is mountain side with thick healthy second growth evergreens. I think the camera picks up the green reflection on the water. If you go to Google Earth and type in " Woss, BC ", just follow the river from the town to the south east about 5-6 miles and the lake is named. The log stiff leg that extends out into the lake to get you out past the mud shoreline for swimming is visible.
