Bullet hard at work

You can't see me!





Usually Bullet is found relaxing at my desk by my side. Sometimes he relaxes a bit too much for the work environment...

Covenants "Run to the Battle"?

Maybe that should be changed to Covenant's Battle Scarred. :)

No, he didn't drop the ball. We kept playing and the only indication I had that he'd been hurt was the blood in his beard, but I figured he'd bitten his tongue. Seeing three smashed teeth was not what I was expecting when I opened his mouth when we got home.

All he lost for Christmas were his three front teeth.



This was from a safe game of fetch, just Bullet and I, in a flat field. When he sees the ball he freezes for a second and then pounces. He must have smashed his mouth on a rock.

This makes me think about the question of passion vs safety. I could keep Bullet on leash at all times to protect him from himself, but the sacrifice would be love of life. That's not an option.

Sigh. Welcome 2009.
