The Wonder Dog

The picture is in my parent's home in Florida, the dog is my sister's dog, Blitz the wonder dog.  

I didn't grow up with dogs in the house.  My father and grandfather had hunting dogs, dogs that never crossed the threshold of the house.  I was tasked with feeding them, without them escaping from the run.  It was not easy, one was escape artist, the other was a nasty little thing that would try to bite the hand that fed him.  Over the years I feared or loathed most of the dogs I met.  

Then along comes Blitz, aka The Wonder Dog.  He is sweet, well behaved and I kind of fell in love with him the first time we met.  For a young dog, he is only 3 years old, I amazed at how mellow he is - I wonder what my brother in law mixes in that dog food! 

Soon, I will go visit The Wonder Dog, and the rest of the people who live in that house.  My sister is fun, but you really should meet her dog.     


  1. many times, animal companions are better than human beings.

  2. Gorgeous dog; and I'm with AM.
    I prefer my animals over many people.

  3. I love dogs. Love every one I meet.
    Must be why I have six.

  4. Blitz is nice, but I still prefer Petunia the Wonder-Sheep.

  5. Hurrah for the Wonder Dog !

  6. I love dogs. Never met a one that I didn't like and didn't like me. I think it all has to do with how you approach them. They know if you fear and loath them. Dogs are pure souls. The only bad is what human beings teach them.
