Other People's Dogs

My husband and I have been involved in various online communities since the early days of web. When Trinket joined us in 1995, naturally we reached out to the online dog communities. One such group was Terrier-L, which consisted owners of various terrier breeds from all of the world. Geordie, a black Scottie, belonged to Linda in Canada. Geordie was couple of months older than Trinket, much more mischievous, and sometimes Linda wrote to the group and asked if anyone had a shotgun. Linda's humorous writing of Geordie's antics accompanied us through out the years. Many group members consider Geordie part of the families. Geordie passed away on Monday. On a happier note, this video has been passed around in different groups. Keep your dogs away from the computer when you watch it, and if they see it, don't blame me if they want the machine.

Oh, Geordie. He is crossing the rainbow bridge, but it must be so sad for the doggie parents. Thanks for sharing the video - my husband desperately wants now this since it is his job to *endlessly* throw Frisky's ball every evening. And what a mean little kid, teasing that poor daschund lolol!! Hilarious :)

So sorry about Geordie. The video was hysterical though and I've forwarded it to my friend with a ball playing Jack Russell fiend who would love this machine!

Uh oh. Pearl wants that. She wants it now. No, she wants it yesterday! LOL

Loved the video. Riley would have really enjoyed that machine but our two current boys are oddities for Jack Russells. Roscoe plays with a ball for only three or four throws, and Mosby loves chasing them, but won't return them because he thinks we should pick them up where he drops them.

I'm sorry to hear about Geordie. He apparently died the same day as the wonderful therapy dog that I wrote about today.

I love the Youtube video. I want my husband and son to build one for Casey.
