BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Monday's Mosaic Memory ~Flannery

Flannery
1976-1989

It took Flannery several years to mature, and he often challenged my patience, but he was one of the friendliest, funniest, most intelligent and affectionate dogs I have ever owned.


If you've ever owned or known an Irish Setter, you can relate to Gary Larson's cartoon.

I love The Farside! I have found that there's always a dog that tries your patience and you know that if they were human they would be able to speak 7 languages--Flannery sounds like one of those pups, and fortunate it was you who was his forever family! Our dog Rudi is also a very bright dog, that suffered from "Dumb Owner Syndrome" for the first year of her life by being part of 3 families that didn't understand her--I have to admit that at first I didn't either. But I find her to be the most intellegent (and the flakiest) dog we've ever had.

Hi Kit,
I have never owned a IS before but had a girlfriend that did so I got to know her dog well. The little carton says it all. That was her dog to a tea!!
I like a dog that doesn't have lots of hair (a short coat):)
I love the Greyhound spirt too.
Bambi is part whippet.
Your girlfriend, Fern
