The End Of An Era

warning: this post does not contain useful information about dog training. Unless you count the down-stay Maizey did on the hood of the Jeep. Hmmm. . .that may be stretching a bit though.LOL

I try to avoid clichés, and "they says" and I realize this is both, I apologize in advance. But, 'they say' "All good things must come to an end." I suppose that is true tonight.

Once upon a time in a land not so distant from here, in my younger and more adventurous days I bought a Jeep Wrangler. It had all of  7 miles on the odometer when I drove it off the lot. Then I met mehusbandy and were were married. Not long after the big event he undertook to build my "Little Jeep" into a rock crawling machine. Needless to say I was overjoyed. For many years growing the jeep was our hobby, it got bigger tires, stronger axles, better gears, more even bigger tires, lift kits, short shaft kits, K&N filters, Borla exhaust manifold with catback exhaust. . .ahh but I could go on and on and this is a dog training blog not a rock crawling one. And as we grew the Little Jeep we climbed bigger rocks, and harder trails and generally "a good time was had by all." (sorry another cliché-two in one story what is the matter w/ me?)

Sadly we must sell the Not-So-Little-Jeep. Thus as  this is the is the end the "Little Jeep" era of our lives tonight the Jeep officially went up for sale. In case any of you dog-folk out there reading are also Jeep-folk like us and would like to see the add we posted feel free to message me and I'll send you the link.

So in memoriam here are a couple of shots of the fun we had.

I guess I will just have to continue on in the 4 legged lessons era of my life, and in the spirit of that I promise next time to have some actual training information for you!LOL

I don't even know what to say. I know you two had some really great times with that Jeep. Cliche or not, it really does seem like the end of an era.

I know its crazy, but time never stands still, and life always moves on. HA! Two more cliches in one sentence!LOL

AWww, that's kinda sad. I know I was sad when I traded away my 14 year old Toyota pickup. :(

cynthia, it is kinda sad, funny how we get attached to a vehicle. Its more what it represents I think, which is silly too. . .oh well, at least its not one of the dogs!
