Great shots is Right!! Man what a cool trestle. And Dixie, Oh boy she's got that look in her eye alright . Should make for a very enjoyable family member!!RexHea said:Great shots. Looks like you guys are having a good time. ..............Don't get on Dixie's case. After all, she is a little girl you know and should be carried across creeks. Her picture looks like she is just waiting to get into trouble.

It's quite a sight when there's 4 or 5 engines in a consist! Some of the train speeds on it are pretty high (45+) as well.
Hi David, well yes and no she says her unfeeling humans had her spayed so anyone and everyone are just friends nowCruise was looking at the monitor when I was reading your post, he asked me to ask you if Lady had a boyfriend.
Hi Rex, yes, aren't all poodles like that. All other dogs must think poodles are from some weird cult. Ours couldn't have cared less who she would bite. Gosh she was a miniature and I seen lots of big men back off when she snarled at them. Moved like greased lightening. The vet figured she came from a puppy mill and had some problems, ending with sugar diabetes as the vet said she had five good years but a rough beginning.Pit Poodle
Hi Johnny, we figure there was some divine intervention here. Actually we were trying to purchase a medium to large dog from a kennel, of which there are many of them in this area, plus private sales from litters. Absolutely, and mostly unbelievable there were no dogs available, anywhere we called including the next two counties. ( This could be in Ripley's Believe it or Not), something like a redneck not having a hound dawg. My wife suggested we call the shelter and the rest is history. So she was saved from the needle. The reason we wanted a larger dog was there were a rash of break ins, where elderly folk had been beaten. One day while I was away, two young fellows in a pickup drove in the driveway. They were trying the door and the windows from the deck. When my wife opened the inside door to the porch the Lady got ahead of her growling and acting very ferocious, sprang at the window that one of them was trying to open. They jumped in their truck and that was the last we were bothered. When either of us answers the door Lady gets between us and the door, one could wonder at this, but we've never seen her snarl at anyone else. LOL no one has bothered us since.Another rescue, Way to go Willis!!!
