    After I fed Ringo this morning, I got the curry comb to brush him. I called his name and he came trotting to me. He got 4 animal crackers, I was going to save 2 for when I finished, but he kept sniffing so I let him have them. I gave him a good brushing.

    He really enjoyed his brushing. He dropped his head, closed his eyes and his lip quivered. Can anybody say AAAAHHHHH.......

    Ringo has a tickle spot between his shoulder blades. If I scratch on the left, he raises his left leg and kicks like a dog. If I scratch on the right shoulder, he kicks with his right leg.

    @bobm I tried to get a good confirmation picture but he keeps walking towards me. I had someone distract him and got this shot. I wasn’t able to get a good picture of his back end. He keeps following me. LOL

    Does he realize what happens to animals at your place when a male gets named and “special” treats? He should be afraid, very afraid.....I keed

    Thank you Bay ... for those that do not know what a conformation shot is ... they are photos taken square on for all four sides of an animal to show his body conformation structure to best advantage . They are then used as publicity together with the animal's height, weight at maturity as well as 5 month weaning weight of the offspring for sale promotion for purebred breeding and marketing of the animal's offspring to glean the best sale price possible . :) :thumbsup

    Bay, I keep thinking how far you've come since you moved. Your life just keeps getting better and better. So happy that you are living your dream. You are such an example to me.
