A Good Dog and a Good Day

The Shoofly pack looks and feels a little different tonight. I sold Moss today, back to his breeder Denise Wall. He's such a good dog and i think they're going to be a special team. As much as i love the little snot, i know he's going to be even more special to her and i'm thrilled to be able to let her have him. You can tell by the grin on her face that she's pretty thrilled herself. :-) Moss went right to work for her today, even with me sitting nearby chatting with other friends. Denise said when she got him home, he just hopped out of the truck and blended right in with the other dogs like he'd never left. He was a special one to Denise and her family when he was a baby puppy, and now "Fatty" (his puppy name, because he was such a solid pup) has come home. I expect to be singing the blues this fall when he's kicking butt in Nursery for Denise and not for me, but i'm just so happy for her to have him. I like when my friends are happy!

I took the rest of the Shoofly Pack over to Becca Shouse's for the bc-boards picnic this afternoon. It sure looked weird to open the van doors and not see those wild light eyes of Moss' looking back at me. The picnic was a lot of fun and the dogs had a good time working Becca's sheep. Personally i had a good time drowning my dog-leaving sorrows in banana puddin', yum!

At least you'll be able to get a lot of Moss updates and see the joy in a friend's eyes. But it must have been so hard for you to give him up. Molly sends doggy kisses and I send a few virtual hugs you can save for when you need them.

Awww. I'll miss seeing the Mossman amongst the Shoofly dogs, but glad I'll still get to see him some! I am so glad you came up for the picnic - it was fun!

You are a kind soul to do this for Denise!

I can't believe you sold Moss, but it was really nice to do that for your friend.
