I just have to say, don't get the wrong idea about my husband. He's a macho, non-sentimental, stubborn old cowboy/cattle buyer. :D

But he really suprised me yesterday. He said, in his usual gruff, irritated voice: " OK, I'll tell you what, I'll get you the dog, and pay for his flight. That'll be your anniversary present. But don't expect any flowers too."

Doesn't he just ooooze charm??? I think he just didn't know what else to get me. :D

But then he wrote me a POEM! (where did THAT come from??) It was really funny, all about my obsession with bassets, and my little shovel I use for poop patrol.

Steinar, 31 hard years is pretty accurate. :D

Here's my husbands Poem he wrote to me on our anniversary:

I bought you a gift on this special day
I hope it brings pleasure in so many ways

a dog of high standard, he is quite a hound
He looks quite solid, built low to the ground

His mane is Moose, and he's from far away
He'll soon be yours, and with us he'll stay

Now Bo will be happy, a brother a friend
they'll play together until the days end

Bo and Moose, the names of your hounds
In our back yard they will run around

Out in our yard, the things they will do...
So be quick with your shovel, and pick up the Poo!

From out of the Province Old Moose will arrive
hope the flight doesn't scare him, and he'll survive

Now once again your family's complete
two basset hounds with 8 paws for feet

Two dogs to cuddle and lay in your bed
They'll take up the space where I lay my head

The house they will make their doggie domain
They'll run in and out again and again

The pleasure they bring you, I hope it stays fast
For a basset hound lover, this might be the last

I hope this gift and this poem will bighten your way
and congratulations on this special day

Love, Keith
