Please let me introduce you to our new family member, Stanley. I have been yearning for a dog for the past 6 years....but something kept happening. Lately I have been haunting animal shelters looking for the perfect furry fellow. Well, here he is. He is an older lab - about 5 years old. He is fabulous and we saved him from death row. He walks like a dream on a leash, sits, shakes and is desperate to meet my cats (who want nothing to do with him). The kids have had him out on about 13 walks today in the steamy heat and he comes in to collapse only to return to the surface of the sun with his new charges. I have always read and heard what great dogs Labs are...I hope our honeymoon is permanent.
We always name our pets after Generals. I feel this Stanley McCrystal is similar to the other as in they were both saved from certain doom. The real Gen McCrystal had to try to win a land war in Afghanistan (never been done before) and this guy had to win over a likely family to take him home. I hope the real Gen McCrystal is buying a big wonderful Bass Boat....this guy is hanging with us.
***I am just a wife....I have nothing at all to do with military planning or war preparations or predictions for that matter. This is a craft blog. If you want my honest to goodness opinion I will happily share it with you. Just email me. I am a patriot to my core and there is nothing I love more than my country, family or military.
