Cletus, two days in

Recommended Posts

Tired of him yet? I'm tired. Exhausted. Cletus was presented as "spry for his age" - at what age does a lab slow down? :rofl I can tell you, it is knot 13.4 and I fell for it :haha

He is such a love! He's discovered the Nylabones

Some houndie friends :kiss2 who have access to their mom's IPad and paypal sent Cletus his own new soft bed

Everyone, so I thought, went outthedoors but a head count came up one short. Ware is Cletus?

He's deaf as a stone and thankfully there's no sleep startle reaction, only "Oh, wot's up?" with that big Lab smile. Somehow I have to break it to him, but that's Punkin's spot (she took over for dear Trevor). I tried dremeling his nails but he's so darned wiggly that I gave up (for the moment), lol.  Cletus! Thanks for looking!

  Oh my! What a character! He will keep you on your toes :) 

(not that the greyhoundies weren’t doing a perfectly fine job of that already)

Yeah, good thing about no sleep startle.  Especially after he's sharpened his teeth on those bones.  :lol

Jeter says he'd be glad to get rid of me send me up to help take chunks of nails off the old fashioned way.  

That's a very nice-looking bed.

Cletus... Are you sure he's not the Energizer Bunny in disguise?  I'm not tired of him, just impressed by how quickly he's fitted in.

My experience with Labs is limited to my grand dogs Hobie and Reese.  But they do have stamina.

I had a Lab many years ago and no they don't slow down which is why, now I've slowed down, I have a greyhound :sleepy

Thanks for the warm welcome for Cletus! He really has not received the memo about his age. When I got home from work he of course didn't know that :lol but neither was he at the door with the other campers. He was in our bed, sound out snoring :wub: Last night we walked to Seamie's Lane so, he is truly now one of us, as every single camper has walked to Seamie's Lane. He's just so darned happy! The other campers are still like "Cletus? You're one of us now."  :rolleyes: Yay.

Cletus - you are one real cool honorary greythound. And your name always reminds of old wild west movies. 


Sorry for butchering the english language. I try to keep the mistakes to a minimum.
