When I was a little girl, we had a Great Pyrenees– a huge white polar bear of a dog. His name was Andy.  He was bigger then me. He was almost as big as my father when he stood on his hind legs.  And he mostly lived in a cage- a nice cage, but a […]

  • Cary - You understand me! You REALLY understand me. That is a great feeling.ReplyCancel

  • Natalie DeYoung - I am a sucker for special needs animals. That is why I kept my husband’s pit bull – talk about needing a LOT of training!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - OMG I can ONLY imagine! Those dogs are STRONG! We have a 3-legged girl kitty and once had a dog that I think was mentally retarded- or is that ALL dogs? HahahaaaaReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - Thank you, Cheryl!

    I think when we grow up with animals, there’ll always be one that makes a deeper impression on us than others. Mine was a daschund- cocker spaniel mix named Blackie. Sounds like Andy was yours!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Your so welcome William. My pleasure. We also had a cat named Chester Field King that was a hoot! They’re ALL my favorites! Love the animals I do 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Papa Bear - fantastic to see others who adopt four legged family members. The joy they can bring to your family is awesome.ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - It really is. They never really want anything from you but a little love and attention and they give such love in return. I wish more PEOPLE were like that! So happy to see you here Papa Bear!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - They are fabulous aren’t they, and WE could not do what you do with your subject half as well. It all evens out!ReplyCancel

  • Sue - The most adventurous I have been sausage-wise is when my (not yet my husband) let me try his (I’m a great hunter)deer meat sausage, which I liked at the time. The hubby and daughter would probably like me to take more risks and visit a deli like this instead of the occasional summer sausage I buy at the local store.ReplyCancel

  • Cheryl Nicholl - Don’t all men think they’re ‘Great Hunter’s’? Thanks for stopping by Sue and have a great weekend. See you next week!ReplyCancel

        Sometimes you just need to get away.     Sometimes you can make it happen.     Sometimes is ‘more often’ (if your lucky).     But, I don’t believe in luck.     I believe in committing to doing the hard work of living well, and recognizing opportunity when it comes a knockin’.     And […]
