Meet Ricoh Shiner Bock the pup my hubby was duped into thinking would stay small. His excuse for bringing home dog number 3, "I rescued it, they said it would stay really small" , "It's Blue Heeler and Labrador Retriever."
Now would be the time to explain that hubby was never the one to rescue dogs, that was my children and I, as in every single time. Hubby was the one whining about it, soooo I guess this was a midlife crisis thing where he decided to actually have a pet ...... That I Would Have To Train Since He Did Not Know How. So I named the pup RICOH, hubby named it Shiner Bock so it has two names.... guess which one he comes to first, RICOH. muhahaha.
Yeah, that looks like a lap dog. Not!

I looked up 'Labraheeler', just to see what I would get. The results were about as random as you would expect, given the variety and difference in the two breeds.

And then there was... this. Um, well, he looks happy, but in the vernacular, "that dog don't look right".

That's a damn fine lookin' doggie! I can tell he has a has a certain type of swagger that defies commonality. I'd be mighty proud to have a doggie like that......and you could hardly tell us apart.

Ricoh started out like this: I think he was given away before 6-8 weeks, he was very small.

My first thought was one of those cryptozoology stories that usually turn out to be a bear with mange.

FWIW, I have seen Greyhound buses do this during the heavy holiday periods, but they were working for speed and to enable a "free pass" option for any of the group when needed.


During the 5 years I drove big trucks it surprised me that I saw few Greyhound buses. And only one or two Trailways. Saw lots of charter buses, but not many of the well known carriers.

I think I can expalin.

One time I was planning a work trip to US for two events with a clear week between them. One on east coast and the other on the west. I thought of travelling across on the ground to fill up the week and to get an impression of what the US is like, instead of just touching in at the hotels here and there where I have been which all seem to have come out of the same factory.

Result, I could not find a way from east to west on trains (I had heard that Greyhound is a service a normal person should not go on) that would enable me to do the trip. In the end I went to one of the events and not the other, had a short trip to US and felt disappointed about not being able to see it.

There just do not seem to be the services offered to travel on.

I can't recall seeing a Greyhound bus on the road for years. When I was a teen it was a common way to travel about with ease. Every town had a Bus Station and they were always pretty busy.
Things have changed drastically in the travel industry.
Train travel in mostly non-existent in most of America. We tried to take a trip from Ft Worth to Alpine in far west Texas and the schedule required a 7 day layover in order to get back home. The price was more than renting a Mercedes and fueling it.

Yep, in America you had better own your own vehicle if you want to travel on land.....I've got 4, so it is just a matter of choice, but I would love to have other options.

If you guys met me in person you would not be making fun of me. I'm really a shy and reclusive person that hardly says a word in face to face conversation. A few PF members that have met me can verify this, I am certain?

Anyhow, most of the posts here are really by Otis using my computers when I am out shopping at Aldis. When he is not watching squirrel porn, he is posting here. It is hard to tell his from mine....excepting that his usually make more sense.....he claims.
