I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Bored, Boring and Gimpy

Stumpy and I have been a little gimpy lately.  Stumpy, with her luxating patella and I with my various issues. That makes us boring and bored.

She's always looking at me, as if to say, "Let's go!"

Also, the ongoing issues with Blogger, YouTube and Google have sucked the fun right out of blogging.  Even when my hands are able I, oftentimes, can't comment.  I have to log out of Blogger to use Google or YouTube. I have to log out of Google, to use Blogger or Youtube and I have to log out of YouTube to use Blogger or Google.  In other words, I can only be logged in on one of these websites at a time.

On top of that, I can't upload a picture to blogger about 50% of the time. In spite of the fact that blogger says it's "done" the picture doesn't show up.  Doesn't matter which format, html or compose, I use.  Or how many times I upload. 

Blogger/Youtube/ Google could care less about these issues.

Please know that I am reading your blogs, in spite of my inability to comment.

Don't worry!

Stumpy is as cute as ever!

Except when she's giving me the stink eye!

The Berner Report: July 2, 2011

It's been almost a year since Alf went to live the good life in Laguna Beach. I hadn't heard from his mom in quite some time and was a little worried; not so much about Alf. I knew his beautiful sister Sophie had undergone surgery in December for a torn ligament and was more worried about Sophie and Alf's mom.

Sophie joined her brother Einstein and our loved ones over the bridge shortly after her surgery. Alf's done his best to comfort his mom and keep her warm.

I extend my deepest sympathies to Alf's family. And hope the the joy Sophie brought to your lives will help heal the pain of loss. (Alf's mom doesn't read blogs, but if you leave condolences, I'll be sure to forward them to her.)

Run free, sweet Sophie! I know Einstein is there for you and has a great Bavarian chef that knows all your favorite treats.

Alf navigated a road trip to Oklahoma where they spent the winter.

And took frequent breaks in the comfy area, set up to meet his every need.

They visited with his 2-legged sister who attends school, there.

Alf commandeered the most comfiest sleeping places (a desert dawg, no more!)

He continues to charm everyone he meets. He loves his stuffies!

Alf's as handsome as ever, if not more so.

Oops! I think the camera monster disturbed someones nap!

Doga in the morning does a body good (obviously!)

If you're a new visitor to our blog, The Berner (now known as Alphonso Bernard Jacob Scout Billy Bob Berner)was a semi-feral dog trying to survive in the Mohave Desert.

Through the Pawer of the Paw, Alf has a family of his own. He's living the good life, well-loved and happily ever after, in sunny SoCal.

The Berner's story can be read in the posts listed below, in chronological order. Or Alf's story can be read by clicking his picture on my side bar.
