FC: “Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” - Roger Cares
1: Puppy Love | Dont sit under my chair - no food there. go to Matthew's seat.
2: Sam sees a deck. Deacon sees birds, squirrels, and at night a bowl full of good food from that deck. | Licks of Love
3: Licks of Love | "There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face." - Ben Williams | Deacon's most endearing quality, according to Nana, was his ability to take a beating from toddlers. | One at a time, these trips are not too bad.
4: Playing at the beach | My Best Buddy in the Whole World!
5: L | Listen | Listen, boy, we will all have a better time if you stop digging up the septic waste.
6: Dogs leave paw prints on your heart. And sometimes dents in your wallet. | Who knew such a small puppy could make such a big splash in one family?
7: “Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” - Roger Cares
8: Puppy Love | "There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face." - Ben Williams
9: My Best Buddy in the Whole World! | Licks of Love | Is he coming? Is he coming? Or do I need to destroy something in the house, again?
10: I love my bed. Jay snores, but I love him anyway.
11: I am part of Jay, part of the beach house, part of the ocean. I am part of all the stories told in the family (and the more colorful ones to boot.) My name will be mentioned every time a stick of butter is missing for generations to come.
12: Now, I share my secret diet - Key to a long life. | Deacon's Secret Diet for a Long Life: Socks Black socks, white socks, old socks, new socks Turkey - my first refrigerator love Rocks Bread, lots of bread Rolls in a basket Rolls in a bag Rolls Dad was told not to eat for lunch (especially tasty) Cash Rocks Butter Butter in the fridge, butter on the table Tin foil Bacon any time, anywhere Lasagna Lasagna pan Cash - can't get enough of Thomas Jefferson Anything in a crock pot Drano toilet bowl cleaner - straight Bigger rocks Try a little septic tank waste - worth the dig Brandy - 1/2 gallon, of Dad's Brandy More socks - the newer the better More rocks 8.5 lb beef roast, "dinner" for 12 (leave the styrafoam) Cash - we love Ben Franklin Everything is better with butter One fresh 5 lb bag of sugar - so little goes so far More socks Tin foil - not the cheap stuff - Reynolds heavy duty, the wider the better
13: Bones are great when you can get them, but I look for the poisonous, the disgusting, the destructive,the expensive, the bizarre. Sprinkle liberally with butter and bacon where possible. Jay never knew when he stepped through the door what to expect. Keeps life interesting. . Always go for the unexpected - Deacon's motto. Either that or "more butter."
