Meet Whitey, aka WhiteBoy,WhiteFang,Moochie,FurButt,Worthless and anything else you want to call him! He responds to anything as long as you have a Milkbone in your hand!
Whitey is the neighborhood dog out to dad's house. He used to belong to an old man that lived down the road,we used to see him laying at the old man's feet on the porch and when the man died his kids cleaned out his house but Whitey was left behind,homeless. He stayed by the old man's house for a couple years,sleeping in the rain and scrounging food. Well we finally coaxed him into our yard (with Milkbones!) and now he hangs out with us alot. But we also found out he cages treats and food from all the neighbors! Everyone likes him and feeds him so he makes his rounds everyday getting what everyone offers him! He is definitely not underfed!
He is part husky and something else and has a very winning personality, rarely barks but is very protective of his territory to other dogs (probably doesn't want to share his treats!) but loves the cats and leaves most of all the other wildlife alone,except squirrels,he loves to chase squirrels!
He's a very good dog and I find it hard to believe some one abandoned him like that!

...but I am a temporary cook instead of a temporary office girl! My nephew reopened my old steak restaurant here in town. He is normally the steak cook (when he is in town,he also drives a truck,delivering boats out of Florida to people that have way much more money than me!) but right now he is in Texas helping with the clean-up. So I was asked to come back and fill in for him til he gets back. It's been a few years since I have done the to-order cooking in a fast-paced restaurant. And,WOW!, I am majorly wiped out! I'd forgotten how much work that is! My feet really hurt! And when it came time to clean up I didn't have trustees to do it for me! That part really sucked! But I had fun and got to see a lot of my old customers that I had not seen in quite some time. But it should be just for a couple of weeks so I should be able to survive it. I hope!
