I did mention awhile ago that Tiggie beat up our neighbor's dog Krauss didn't I?

Now isn't this the sweetest boxer face ever?
He was a rescued dog last winter...came with major injuries to his "scalp" that have since healed nicely.

Now his life is good...he is well loved by his owners and his next door neighbors. least most of the neighbors.
Tiggie still uses kitty cussing when Krauss is walked by.
We always apologize for Tig's language when that happens.
Krauss is now taking it all in stride.

Krauss responds to commands from his mistress who speaks to him in German, his master who speaks to him in French and to Bernie and me speaking to him in English.

Apparently he doesn't understand Cattish well enough to be bothered by whatever it is that Tigs is saying. I think that is probably a very good thing.

Sometimes I join our neighbors for a spin around the neighborhood with Krauss.
I thought of my fellow "grass widow" friend in Florida when I saw this weathervane on one walk.
Great Christmas gift idea, huh?

(Thanks for being a pal Vicki!)

That's a smart pup!

and a cute weathervane - I wonder if they have a fly fisherman type?

Krauss is a cutie!! He looks like a good pup.

Hmmm...wonder if our HOA would allow us to perch a weather vane like that one atop our house? I guess they'd probably call it a hurricane hazard, but I'll bet the golfers on our fairway would like it!

I'm getting quite the collection of golf balls lately...our house is located somewhere between the hook and draw along the fairway from the tee. (B could probably look at an aerial map of our fairway and point out our house from the description above.) Maybe I could stack those golf balls in a type of inukshuk for golfers...?

(Anytime, my friend...anytime!)

Krauss...I like the name...suits him just fine!

Ignoring 'standoffish' neighbours is sometimes the best policy. Maybe Tiggie will come around.

I love it when pet owners talk different languages to their animals. Krauss is totally German, no wonder he can't understand Catish.
