Go Ahead, Move

Turning onto our gravel road, I wondered whether the crew would be there today to erect the forms needed so the concrete could be poured for the foundation. Approaching the driveway, I saw a pickup parked off to the side, then a trailer holding the concrete forms.  
And there, off to the side, was the Pres who waved as I turned in. Stopping the car and rolling down the window, I saw something that I just couldn't stop admiring.   Mesmerized by his demeanor and beauty, I just couldn't take my eyes off of him.  His huge brown eyes met mine and we seemed locked.

Meet Ned, a one hundred and thirty pound German Shepherd who chases rocks. He begs you to throw one and once he's got it, he returns to your side, lies down and sets the rock between his paws which are outstretched in front of him. Then he stares....and stares....and stares at the rock, whining occasionally as if to say...

 "go ahead, move."

Have you met any interesting critters lately?

Sharing with you and those at

  5. He is a handsome dog.. It is cute he plays fetch with rocks.. Thanks in advance for sharing your post with my critter party.. Happy weekend!

  6. Knew a dog like that once, lost his teeth early. The rocks just sanded them down over time. He is beautiful.

  7. He's simply beautiful. Majestic. My own dogs constantly amaze me...sometimes just for being foolish.

  13. He is a very handsome looking dog. Wade would love to have another German Shepherd but we just don't have enough room for a dog that big to run.

  14. What a gorgeous dog! I'd love to play 'rock' with him!

  15. Ned sounds like a sweetie. And a one-of-a-kind! I don't know any other dogs that chases rocks and then protects them with his paws.


Spread some yourself...and for Heavens sake, find your passion!
