The Bravest Man in the whole world

 Hey Everyone, this is Todd.  He is the bravest man we have ever met.   He is a plumber man and My Vickie has been searching for a plumber forever.  Most of the plumber people don't even return her calls after she leaves a message and says, we need help with a very old house.

The ones that did speak to her over the phone said they were not willing to go into the teenie tiny crawl space under the house for any amount of money. 
 But Todd said he would come and look.  AND HE DID.    It was kinda scary sending a mear human being down into that dark, spider and rat filled area.  (There aint no rats anymore cause we caught them and re-located them to a country estate)

But they left behind lots of icky stuff.  Todd was so brave.
He slowly dissappeard out of sight as he shimmied his way under the house.  Once he hollered out something about, No Hope.....Can't be fixed....and then well, he was gone.  Where he went, nobody knows.  We will miss Todd.  He was so brave.
Just a reminder about the coming Community Safety Week.  We sure could use some more pictures.     Here are the kind we need.   And it can be with or without humans in it.  You can send them to My Vickie at

Here is the list. Let me know if it makes sense. When you pick the one you want, I will send you a picture of an idea of how to set it up, but using your imagination is just fine with me.

1. Child and dog looking at each other
2. Dog looking on as child is writing a note
3. Child and Dog sitting together
4. Family and dog walking through the woods
5. Dog and child by water
6. Child and Dog with child sitting by a tree.
7. Dog and Child with whistle
8. Dog and child with water bottle
9. Dog watching as child hangs light stick
10. Dogs looking upward (can be with a child)
11. Dog showing child how to make a snow angel
12. Dog showing children how to make rock arrows
13. Dog and child crawling to water
14. Dog and Child tin foil shoe print
15. Picture of dog outside by trees or in forest on Sit or Stand

Thanks so much.  Check out Mayor Frankie and Sarge  for more updated info.

Have a great day

Oh, poor Todd. Hope there are no man-eating spiders down there!

We don't have any small bipeds living with us, but we will look through our pictures and see what we have from when the grandkids visit.

So we guess it is safe to assume that none of you want to perform a Search and Rescue of Todd??? BOL - he IS one brave man.

We can probably get you a pic of a child and dog looking at each other, but not until tomorrow when the little bipeds come back.

Gee Bert, I can't understand how come YOU don't search and rescue poor ole Todd? Are you afraid of the spiders?

woos, Tessa

Mango said...

Hey Bert! What is up with all that dog with child crap? I don't go anywhere where those wee humans are at. You can count on it.

As for plumber dude... wow! That is above and beyond. Did he just wander around down there or was there actual plumbing going on?

We hope Todd is found! Getting a plumber around here is a very hard thing to do....they all seem to be in hiding when you call them! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

Bert tell your Vickie we have a very old house that looks a lot like yours. This house needs everything fixed on it and in it too!!!! We can't afford to fix it and it makes me so sad!!
I'll see if I can get a picture of Tinker in the trees.

You are lucky to have found Todd--brave handy-guys are tough to find!

And we're working on getting some pictures for you--if only these dogs and kids would stand still in the same spot for a minute!

I sure hope Todd came back... a plumber who returns calls is a terrible thing to lose!!!

ra husky said...

Was... was Todd ever heard from again?

snoopy@snoopysdogblog said...

Hey Bert,

Any news on poor Todd, did he re-appear or is he still under there?

Think you might need to send a search party after him - oh wait, you're a search and rescue Dog - are you brave enough to go in there and look for him?

Paws crossed for Todd,

Your pal Snoopy :)

Going down that dark narrow hole, where nobody knows what's inside, is indeed a sign of bravery! A plumber's job is not easy, and it takes a very skilled and experienced plumber to identify and fix a problem. So, what did you do after he left? Were you guys able to do other plans to end the problem?
