Trained pigs who find truffles are similar to which?
  1.   Farrah pawing my leg for a pet.
  2.   Raindrops on the roof.
  3.   Danny Quinn searching for, finding and eating poop.
  4.   Roller Derby addiction.

Answer:  #3!  If I see Quinnie very interested in something on the floor or in the yard, I grab a scoop or toilet paper because I know he has found some poop.  I have had him at least 4 years; he is no better than when I first emailed back his rescue to tell them he was a "poop-aholic."  Sigh.  At least I know where to go in my yard to start poop scooping.

Pigs flying will happen before:
  1. Hoss stops jumping the 4 ft fence
  2. Hoss stops being a personal heat pump on my lap on the recliner. 
  3. Hoss stops baying at anything and everything.
  4. All of the above.

Answer: #4!  I have/had 3 dogs who fit the heat pump mode: Spanky RIP, Hoss and Cane, though Cane climbs in the bed not the recliner.  Hoss came up again the other night.  Thank God I had turned off the electric blanket.  I still had to strip off my over-top and pull my legs out of the blanket to keep from burning up.  Once he is asleep, he is asleep!  Oh, and I think thanks to Susan working him several times a week, his baying is settling down some...jury still out.

Which reminds me:  I was gone for a bit the other day, left dogs behind the miracle gate and NO ONE JUMPED OVER even though two of the dogs could have with the other gate.  WooHoo.

Sometimes I wish one of my girls thought of themselves as lap dogs. but Daisy has a typical hound smell so sometimes I'm glad it isn't her! LOL Have you taken Sadie and Hoss on personally or they still with the Coonhound Rescue? I just noticed they weren't listed anymore online.

Also, I passed on a stylish blogger award to you. Feel free to use it or not, but it was my way of saying I enjoy reading about your hounds!
