Anyone else hear dabble in Charcuterie? No it's not a form of voodoo or black magic although the results are pretty magical!
A lot of fun, just curious, if I'm the only one here.
Admittedly, I had to consult the Google, but DAAAYUM Jean, that looks mighty tasty my man. I smoke pork of all kinds in the smoker, but I don't think that really counts when comparing to what's being spread on that ritz. That looks amazing and I bet your brethren there appreciate it!
What bothers me is that the dog is getting old, 10 yrs, old for that breed. What bothers me is that I have tried to contemplate life without him and I panic. What bothers me is that I'm old, too and I'm not certain what to do without him.
Hopefully the 'ol boy has many more years of happy and fulfilled life ahead of him (as do you)!
Life without your friend is miserable for a considerable amount of time. We've lost two amazing friends in the last three years and I'll be the first to tell you that every Xmas since I bawl, like a little girl, while hanging up their ornaments.
What has helped tremendously is our getting two NEW friends. One was 11 months and a rescue, while the second was a puppy. They're not the same as the old friends, even though they're the same breed. In fact, they're wildly different, but they're a good different. Not better, nor worse... just different, and now we love them just as much as we did our old friends.
If (your) age is a concern, and you can't imagine keeping up with a puppy, I suggest looking at animal rescues and shelters. There are literally thousands of middle aged, great, dogs out there in need of new homes. Who knows, the new friend may show you some new tricks.
Enjoy whatever time you have left with him, whether it's weeks or hopefully years and don't be selfish if and when it comes time to make some tough decisions.
Now, MORE FOOD PRON PLEASE!!!
