ABC Wednesday - C

C celebrates my Canine friends! This is Milo! He's my canine and was born in Bethlehem, Connecticut in 2002. He's the BEST DOG that ever walked the face of this earth. A blab, that is beagle lab mix, he loves to hang out and be lovable but at a moment's notice he'll jump up and howl at a passing dear.
Here's Eva, the Rottweiler and Topsy a mini-Schnauzer. They're sisters and love to sing together to Grateful Dead tunes. Milo thinks they are pretty cool dogs to run with tearing up the backyard.
Here's Eva again protecting me.
Another friend is Licorice. Licky is some sort of mix, I think lab - German shepherd or something like that. Licks is OLD and is sick with Diabetes and Arthritis. I'm afraid she's not long on this earth but she seems happy. She is really happy when Milo comes for a visit, she perks up and puts on her best.
Meet Trotsky a mini poodle. I met Trotsky in Jerusalem but he actually lives in Brooklyn, New York. Trotsky lived next door with a friend. Each Friday night, Shabbat, Trotsky would be my Shabbat date (I'd dogsit) since I don't normally observe Shabbat. T was a yipper and when my friend would come to pick him up he would be so excited that he would repeatedly jump in the air, all fours off of the ground. If Milo ever found out that Carole took Trot to live in Jerusalem and I didn't take him, well.We end with Milo once again, this is his Bedouin pose. He has quite an affinity for them.
Quite handsome a handsome guy.
