My Dog Snooper

September 27, 2009 Story Time No Comments

Laura's dog snooperWhen I was a little girl, my dad was in the Air Force and was stationed in Houston….I had a dog…his name was Snooper…I loved that dog more than anything in the world.

He only had ONE vice…he chased cars…he was hit by vehicles three times in his life…the first two were no too bad and he was able to recover…the third time he was hit by the paperboy…the boy was on a motorcycle…Snooper ran out in front of him…he was hurt badly.

My dad sized up the situation and decided the best thing to do was to “put him down”…I was only 4 so I did not know what that meant.

Dad got his gun out of the closet and loaded it with bullets…my mom began to cry…I started crying too and begged my mom not to weep…I said, “Don`t worry mother…dad is going to shoot the paperboy not Snooper.” When I said that, my dad put the gun away and scooped up the dog…he took him to the vet and told him he HAD to save the dog for my sake…the vet patched him up and he lived to a ripe old age.

After he recovered, we went to Arkansas to visit my grandmother and other relatives….we took Snooper with us…I was not going ANYWHERE without that dog…I decided to give him a bath…my grandmother fixed me a dishpan of soapy water…well, the dog was a lot bigger than I so that did not work very well…so I ditched that idea and took the “plunge” myself….here is the proof.

Alligators In Our Yard!

July 17, 2012

  You have to look real close, but the gator is resting behind the sago palm and the water’s edge.  Needless to say, I too these photos from inside the house and did not go out to get a closer inspection. The Alligator Trapper caught “the big one” which was 12 foot plus.  Here he […]

Shepherd in a Manger

November 20, 2011

  Found on the Internet / Facebook: A Nativity Scene was erected in a church yard. During the night, someone came across this. An abandoned dog was looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep. He chose baby Jesus as his comfort. No one had the heart to send him away so he was there […]

Tale of the Missing Socks

September 17, 2011

My cat Penelope wears socks.  Yes, you heard correctly, socks.  She’s a little over 15 years old now and has arthritis in her back legs.  This causes her to be a little unsteady when using the litter box.  Sometimes, not always, but sometimes after she tinkles she looses her balance and steps in the clump of […]

You may […]
