Uncle Brad's annual humiliation ends ...for now

Poor Uncle Brad....lots of folks have had fun at his expense. Several great entries were appended to our post for his birthday and there were outside entries, too. (Scroll down if you don't want to hit the link.)

From Pat the Red Sox fan:
"M-O-N-K-E-Y = 15 Scrabble points.
B-R-A-D = 7 Scrabble points.
Monkey wins and Brad loses. Brad's old. Happy Birthday."

And the winner is:
"Well, okay ...just one squeeze...but only the left one." from our buddy Rhonda!

Oh yeah! We hit 3200 reads on our blog today. We're wagging really hard right now!

Other friends in this Alabama border town may already have told you this, but Columbus has a miniature dachshund you may want to to add to your "fierce" list. (See the L-E front page.) Like the other dog I recently told you about, Bob Barker, this dog has an honored name--Seabiscuit. Seems Seabiscuit's staffer heard his loud barks recently and went outside to check. A coyote was just a few feet away from the dog, but Seabiscuit just kept barking. The staffer took him inside and will watch more closely now, but the dog is a brave champ. I lived briefly in Arizona and had a dog, my late and beloved Lucy, who virtually never barked. She was on my son's patio one evening when I heard her barking a strange, determined bark. I walked to the patio and a coyote was just a few feet away. Scared me to death, although most of them are afraid of humans. Lucy was bigger than the coyote, but she must have looked like a good dinner because a few nights later I heard that eerie bark again and there were two coyotes closing in on either side of the patio, which had low railings they could easily have jumped over. The last part of that story is that my son had Lucy out for a walk when three--three--coyotes began chasing her. We left Arizona soon after but I'll bet Lucy had coyote nightmares the rest of her precious life.
