Our peek-a-poo loves to go out on our back porch and lay in the sun while I load the washing machine in our utility room. For some reason she will not go down the stairs to our backyard which is OK with me. We also have a new cat that was given to us by our next door neighbor who moved recently. Allie Cat, an inside cat, has gotten out once and came back in. I don't think she liked staying outside all night long. We could not get her to come up the stairs and would run out into the backyard when we called her name...but when morning came she wanted to eat and was anxiously waiting to come in. She has not been out since. I decided the other day to run and get my camera and take a picture of Katie lying in the sun. I thought it turned out pretty good and I'm using her picture (close up) as my wallpaper on my computer. Katie is almost 11 years old now. Her birthday is on New Year's Eve. She has been a good dog and companion to my husband and I through the years. She is the perfect watch dog and loves to play with our grandchildren when they come to visit. She has a ton of toys and her favorite is the mailman toy. She hates the mailman!!!
A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.
