Darnedest thing I ever seen... that was 6+ years ago. Rambo won't go near water other than to drink from a mud hole..  :o
Boss will lay in the mud hole up to her neck when it's hot out.

Spoke to Killer today... sensed a bit of depression in his voice. I pressed him for information. The nursing home administration paid him a visit and the conversation was more along the lines of long term. It's a complicated thing when you're on SSI and medicare. He spoke having to sell his place. He is trying to come to terms with it but, I think he is beginning to accept it. He is a big man with big man's pride.
He will be out of quarantine on Wednesday. His sister and Betty Lou plan to take Boss and visit. The place is only like 4 miles down the road from us. He is in the front of the building on the ground floor.. we can wave to him when we drive by just like we did when he was home.

Bill,

Well,... we can (clearly) see who is running this show now. The head count may be even now but they have you outnumbered in legs.   ::)  Glad Rambo has a new bud.

He is trying to come to terms with it but, I think he is beginning to accept it. He is a big man with big man's pride.

Mighty hard thing to overcome for sure. I've seen my uncle struggle with that as well. Strong capable independent man all his life but now he's having a good day if he can make it to his mower to cut grass. At least he's back home after being in health rehab for 2 months which was emotionally brutal on him thanks to no visitors allowed due to covid but it's just a matter of when he'll need to go to the nursing home. It's not just them that suffer it's the loved ones that remember who they used to be and see how they suffer in old age which takes a toll. Can't stay young forever. This ain't heaven yet.
There is much needed hope for the future. Our world is not falling out of place it's falling into place just as foretold. https://christinprophecy.org/

Update..
Killer is in surprisingly good spirits. We talk to him at least once a day on the phone. Betty Lou and his sister had planned to visit him today but, they want him to be able to visit folks in the 'day room' and he isn't quite up to going from bed to wheel chair yet. Remember, the man is 400# or better. It'll be a couple more weeks before we can get him up to it.
So Betty Lou went down to his place and gathered up a bunch of t shirts, sweats and other clothing to wash up and take to him. They will drop it off and someone will make sure he gets it.
Looks like Betty Lou is going to end up with his truck. It's a 2000 GMC 'Off Road" 4x4 with a ton of miles on it but Killer loved it and took great care of it.
Arrangements are being made for his sister's 2 boys to buy his property. The nursing home will make him sell it and this way, at least it can stay in the family.
As much as I hate to admit it, Bossie is making her way into our little family. All of our daily routines include her now. Both her and Rambo will join us this weekend in our RV trip to the ATV park. Rambo continues to school her as to the do's and don'ts of our life style. They take turns at the food and water bowl... one patiently waits for the other to finish.. first come, first serve. Rambo has made it very clear that his place is on the bed and hers is on the floor. When bedtime is announced they both make their way to their designated sleeping spots.
Betty Lou has been walking Boss on a leash because she tends to enter the fence and chase the cows. She is getting better and soon she'll be broken of it. Rambo is happy to walk beside her unleashed. The farmer that owns the cows continues to say "Leave her be, she ain't gonna hurt them cows". But Betty Lou insists on coddling her. One kick from a cow and she'll stop chasing them. Rambo knows better, he's been bit on the nose by an electric fence and won't go near it.

That is great. It sounds like people, property and critters are all getting settled in, with overall improvement on all fronts.

That is good news! If he is gaining strength/losing weight to where he might begin to move around again; he may very well walk out of there someday.... There is nothing worse for a body than losing the ability to move; and to lose hope... Killer sounds like he is keeping and gaining back both.  :D
Continued best wishes for all;

Boss had her visit to the vet today...
She got 2 shots in the butt and a pill. She's not a happy girl.
She weighs 83.5 lbs. and she's not at all fat. Solid dog.
