« Find A Death | Main | Is the Damn Election Over Yet? »



Daddy still thinks that Benny is mostly Norwegian Elkhound. Curly tail, rough coat, totally pink tounge... But whatever Ben is he is a truly benevolent soul. Somewhere there is a little old lady that wants a perfect companion. A dog that will find ultimate joy in sitting at her feet and putting his head in her lap simply to get some attention and his ears scratched. Shame on us, we own that poor little old woman's best freind...



Max...aka Big Dog. Max is 120lbs of Malamute/Husky and 13.5% Arctic Wolf (there's a LONG mathematic formula that goes along with figuring that he is 13.5% Arctic Wolf..trust me...whatever!).

Max and I have been together for almost 12 years. Max is Max's dog. He answers to no man. He is fiercely independent lets you know that right out of hand. Max is also 2nd in charge around here (as he sees it). When I'm not around he takes care of Lisa. When I am around he looks out for the children, whether they be newborns or 11 years old, it's all the same to him. In his younger days he played a mean game of Soccer but these days he fills his role by looking out for the family (with his one good eye) by sleeping as close as he can to where we all congregate. Not too close mind you, he has always been the "lone wolf" and never an attention hound. But always close enough to have everything well in hand, his duties fulfilled. Who could ask for a better companion and protector?...or a better friend?

    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)

  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
