Say, "Hello," to Luna. She is a pure-bred yellow lab and just turned 6 weeks old.

No more loyal animal exists than the yellow lab, I miss my Emma dearly.
Watch those hips and enjoy the horrifying aroma, you'll miss it someday.

Wow, is that an actual picture you took of your own dog? It's a very cute looking puppy, but I must say I love the picture, very high quality and professional!

SNK - ::Gnu's Wife typing:: .. O.M.G.!!!! you're puppy is so CUTE!!

btw... I think you are all nerds


I discourage your nerdisms....


I can't believe the spell checker doesn't except abbreviations unless a high enough number of words are spelled correctly.... so ignore the below.

Pull my finger, I am spelling random words to throw off and trick the spell checker to except my abbreviations... yes... it is sort of pointless because in less words... as Gnu pointed out I could have just spelled my abreviations correctly... but darn it... I think that horse manure.... So, I'm now showing my spoiled brat side. Anyway... Yes, I concure, adorable puppy.
Drinking is fun, please make fun of him royally for this message.

so cute, wonderful, even while I don't like dogs.

Gnu, please inform your wife I prefer one of the following terms in lieu of "nerd:" nutcase, crank, community drunk, The Ripper, whacko, and, on occasion, "that annoying guy who corrects my spelling mistakes."

Thank you.

Hello Luna! Welcome to CB!

Amber: I find the word 'nerd' highly offensive. I prefer the term 'Basement Gremlin'. :D

Look at her! Who's a pretty girl? Regan The WonderDog says to type "woof, woof, bark!" Congrats, SNK - best thing I've done in a long time was to get my own dog... Enjoy her! :)

I used to have yellow lab. He was certainly a good dog, but mind what novice says. His hips went bad so we had to put him to sleep. You'll love that dog to death, but make sure you take good care of her. She's worth it.

By the way, my compliments to whomever took that picture.

Regarding who took the picture: This is the work of my brother. He's very talented with the camera and this is one of those examples. I'll let him know of your compliments, guys, thanks. :)

And, yes, this is the picture of Luna herself, not another dog. If you look to the right of Luna, you can see our animal-love basket full of toys for the cats and dogs. (You wouldn't believe it, but they actually dig out the toys themselves if they're not already on the carpet.) The bone to the right is a standard bone we give our dogs -- they love them!

I'm not quite sure what the box is there for to the left of her. We seldom have a box out for one of ours cats, Tippy (or Little Buddy), and she goes crazy with boxes. She tries to hide in them and pounce out and catch one of the fake mouses on the carpet. ;)

P.S. Bart, you're one of a kind. (And, yes, that's a good kind!)

I've set it as my coworker's background image ;)
