Of Dirty Crocs and a Dying Dog

Shiffra our 14 Y.O. humane society mix dog told me she didn't want any pictures today. I had realized I don't have any pictures of her happy, after a few old computers went kaflooey. She is a cross between a cow-dog and a German Shepard mutt I am most sure. Well she herded everything including Lori and I, so I figure she had a little cow dog in there.

I took a picture of some our Croc shoes we cleaned today, as at least mine were pretty smelly and gross. I had no idea that if you cleaned some fish and then mowed the yard they could be such a tragedy. I have no idea what Shiffra would think because she can barely do more than keep her ears up, she loves hearing Lori so much. I don't think she would mind the shoes in the least.

Dang, almost had her on a big boogie board, a real sponger. Shiffra still is her name.

Update: By 9:30 she had passed and all is OK now except the puppy is very confused. We aired out the house real good because death has a particular smell. It is OK now.

Our Zoe has left this earth also. I should feel lucky we have so many pictures of her. It was a tragic accident and I delayed the obvious for 24 hours for my own selfish reasons. I will miss swimming with her and playing our own special game of water polo. I hope I never forget the way she would bark, telling me to throw the damn ball!

Take care Sammy ol bud,

Sam and Lori, my thougths are with you. Shiffra was a very pretty dog, and to have a family pet gone, well, that is so sad. I'm thinking of you guys....
