THE PATIENCE OF JUBE

Heya Hounders,
It's none other than Jubal, a.k.a. the Big Jubes, with today's input. Do y'all have any idea how exaserbating it can be to have a sniveling little puppy in your face all the time? Talk about an annoyance! I believe that I was the first of the gang to meet the new little fella. I believe it was last Sunday, about 5 years ago; well, it sometimes seems like 5 years ago even if it was only 5 days ago. That little pup has some mighty sharp needles attached to his jaw bones. My ears have more holes in them than mom's pasta strainer. And where in the dickens does he get all of his energy? Supposedly this little guy, his name is Radar by the way, well supposedly he's blind. That's probably the truth because he bumps into lots of things around the house, but let me assure you that Radar has no difficulty what so ever in finding me, especially if I'm trying - trying being the operative word here - to take a nap. Believe me, the pup has no problem what so ever finding in ambushing me from a far. No matter where I may be hiding or how much out of his range I think I am; I'm the target of abuse. Now I'm as tolerant as the next guy, more so if the next guy happens to be Jack, but PALEEZE, give me a break. Thank goodness the guy is staying out in the garage kennel when mom and dad are both out of the house. But if either one of them is home he now has full house priliges. It's fine with me as long as he's in his crate. It's only when he's awake and loose that I dread our guaranteed encounters. Perhaps his puppy teeth will all fall out and his adult teeth won't grow in; then he'll only be able to gum me to death. Is there no end to this torture? Somebody call the President BHO and tell him I'm being illegally tortured. Because of the weather we're having problems posting videos so we'll try again tomorrow.

Jube, You're a saint, a barking saint. Puppies, blind or not, can be a pain. But Radar will outgrow it. You did. Meanwhile, we hope you find an extra dose of patience.

And the good part is, you didn't say you hate him, just his baby teeth. :)

Hi Jubal - sorry about your ears. Jan is right... puppies can be a real pain, but it'll all sort itself out somehow.

Hey Jubal;
You are one great dog to put up with the little guys teeth. But it will all be worth it in the end.

Hi Jubal! Zeke still gnaws on me, but his big teeth have come in and they're not as needle-sharp. Well, that's something, anyway!

See ya!

Thank you so much for having patience with your little sibling. Radar is doing is very best to be a puppy, to learn new rules and to live in a world where everyone else can see. One day there will come a time when you won't even notice that he can't see. We know this because momma told us about a doggy named Prince that she adopted from our shelter who couldn't see. She loved him very much. Radar will be a great brother, you'll see.

Aww, Jubal, Radar is a lucky pup to have you around to play with him and teach him the ropes!

STEP UP TO ADOPT A PET

If you can, please consider opening your home to a homeless animal, preferably a dog or cat or other domesticated animal; livestock does better on farms and wild animals do better in zoos and parks. Your local Humane Society or SPCA or Animal Shelter has a wide selection of could be, should be, pets looking for new homes. If you can't adopt, perhaps you can at least become a sponsor. We'll show you how to help out Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRRS) on our blog page, but you can help out any organization of your choice, but please help; contribute or volunteer.

Your donations can be targeted towards a particular Senior or Special needs Golden Retriever. As a sponsor, you will receive updates about your "special" Golden, and will be mentioned in our quarterly newsletter as the dog's sponsor. We also accept Paypal donations.
