Conrad's Stories

The life and times of the Conrad Adam family in Kendall County, Texas

Two boys and their dog, looks just about perfect. Except no one in the picture looks happy. Why? Chester’s and Jimmie’s dog was very friendly and enjoyed playing. Friends or strangers would come to the visit the Adam family and the dog would welcome them but IF the visitors tried to leave the dog would bark and growl and carry on. He wouldn’t let them out of the house. It was Chester’s and Jimmie’s job to hold the dog while the visitors would make a mad dash to their car. Once in their car the dog was perfectly ok. Jimmie said it was a pain to hold that struggling dog. The boys asked their parents if they could get a smaller dog because this big dog was too hard to hold. After Jimmie told me that story I looked at the picture again and noticed that the boys are hanging tightly to the dog and the dog is looking a little shifty eyed.
