My daughter Bethany is the pet lover in our family.  She loves animals.  As she was growing up we always had cats.  She always wanted a dog so........... post college she bought herself her first pet.  Kindle!!

Kindle's baby picture

Kindle is a German Shorthair Pointer.  She's a kick!  I've never met a dog with so much personality.  She's very high energy.  Bethany trained her well, so for the most part she's very obedient.  Sometimes to the point of shaking while obeying (because she really has something else she'd like to do)!

I doggie sit while she and her hubby are away.  We have fun together.  She is obsessed with Balls!  If you have a ball, you WILL have her undivided attention.  NOTHING will distract her.  It's pretty amazing.

Kindle patiently waiting for someone to throw the ball

She is fixated on the ball.  She brings it to you, drops it and waits.  There are times when we are visiting and not paying attention to her, and we'll notice what you see above.  WAITING ~ please won't someone throw my ball? 

So that was a little history on Kindle. 

Bethany has been working for me part time while finishing her Masters degree in counseling. When she comes to work she often brings Kindle.  So last Thursday she and Kindle were here.  We had
A LOT to do.  I was trimming up a quilt and found a new use for those trimmings.  I doubled it up, tied 2 knots in it and voila' a dog toy.  We played tug of war and she ran around with it and chewed on it.  It actually held up pretty good!

Yes!  Piles of fabric in the background

Pretty Doggie

She also liked the core from a bolt of fabric.  She was so funny.  She ran around with it in her mouth like it was a stick.  Then proceeded to tear it apart.  She's so good to never touch anything that hasn't been given to her.  When you do give her something it's like WOO HOO!!

Bethany and Kindle

More on pets another time.  They are so entertaining!  Oh, by the way - since Kindle ~ Haz Mat, Roxy, and Indie have joined her family (that would be a cat and 2 horses) bet you anything there's more to come.  Good thing hubby Jeff loves them right along with her!

Do you have pets?  A funny story?  Leave a comment and tell us about them.

OK ~ better get back to writing.  It's been a weekend of writing.  I need to get booklets to the printer this week.  Yikes!

Thanks for visiting!
