Nothing But Norman #37

Happy Saturday Everyone!

This past week I got a email from one of Nellie’s puppy buyer’s (Norman’s grandson) from her and Tiny’s 2009 litter. They bought a male puppy and named him Junior. Junior lives in Iowa and is lucky enough to live in a hunting household that also owns a hunt club and he is the designated pick up dog for the hunts. The past two weeks he has been hunting hard and has retrieved 180 snow geese. What a life, every hunting dogs dream.

This is what Junior’s owner says: We shot over 180 birds the last two weeks. He was the only dog in the field. He is so awesome. he had some blind retrieves that blew my mind, over the terrace’s and down the hill, then he would appear with the bird. You guys would be so proud of him!! I swear a couple of the guys fell in love with him. We joked that we should not leave JR and them alone in the same room!!!

Getting emails like this makes me so happy. So glad Junior is living the life and that his owners love him to pieces. This all wouldn’t of happened without Grandpa Norman to start out the family tree.

Now on to Sepia Saturday with our host Ruckus The Eskie.

May You Always Have an Angel by Your Side

May you always have an angel by your side

Watching out for you in all the things you do

Reminding you to keep believing in brighter days

Finding ways for your wishes and dreams to come true

Giving you hope that is as certain as the sun

Giving you the strength of serenity as your guide

May you always have love and comfort and courage

And may you always have an angel by your side

Someone there to catch you if you fall

Encouraging your dreams

Inspiring your happiness

Holding your hand and helping you through it all

In all of our days, our lives are always changing

Tears come along as well as smiles

Along the roads you travel, may the miles be a thousand times more lovely than lonely

May they give you gifts that never, ever end: someone wonderful to love and a dear friend in whom you can confide

May you have rainbows after every storm

May you have hopes to keep you warm

And may you always have an angel by your side

Douglas Pagels

Angel Norman is with me always, I wouldn’t have it any other way! Have a great weekend all!

  1. Wow, Junior really is living the life!! How great that he has an active, happy, and loving home. I bet Grandpa Norman is looking down with great pride.


  2. What an awesome life for Junior. We need a hunter to come to our area and kill off all those Canadian Geese that are starting to invade the area again. They are so awful – mean and poop everywhere, just rotten which makes the fact that they are beautiful no longer matter! Happy hunting.


  3. Thanks so much for hopping on the parade! Now, to show my complete lack of hunting…are those white things that look like geese but are pieces of material decoys? Are some of those geese alive that are by the hunters? Do you eat snow geese? I am once again awe-struck! LOL!!


  4. Wow that is a lot! Are those a bunch of fake geese on the ground? I assume so because I see some X’s on them and I don’t know why they’d want to hang around hunters. I’m a hunting noob if you couldn’t tell lol.


  5. Great to meet you and thanks for joining in the Pet Parade! So nice to see more doggies joining in. Wow, that is a lot of geese. Sounds like he has one good nose! ~Rascal and Rocco
