...Don't know what we'd have done without the crate. The boys
are very fond of their crate. They go "to bed" for a nap (when
I need to be gone) very willingly. They seem to know when it's
bed time. I think they're doing so well.
The people who come here often also play with them, give them
their dog biscuit treats, and also pet and hold them. They get
quite a bit of attention and they like that.

Since Larry will have a 10 week recovery from his triple bypass
surgery, he'll have more time to spend with "the boys" too. I
watched him play with them before and he really loves them alot.
Although he never mentioned it, he missed Roscoe as much or more
than I did. I must face facts: We're dog people, and our home
is not complete without dogs.
I wish my mom had been an animal lover - she wouldn't be so lonely
now if she enjoyed pets as much as we do. She enjoyed her chickens
and sheep. She thought animals "didn't belong in the house!" We've
got one daughter who is somewhat the same way, but the other three
kids all have their own cats and dogs too.
Life wouldn't be worth living without pets, at least not for
me. I have always said, "If there are no pets in Heaven, I don't
want to go! But, if there are no pets, it can't be Heaven."
I'm so greatful to live in the country on a farm. There has always
been plenty of room for the animals. Must close. Thanks so much
for helping us with "our boys." They're all we expected, and more.
