BEFORE I WRITE THE DOUR PART OF THIS EDITORIAL:
I Didn’t Want To Write On Easter Friday, Since This Was The Time In My Mind For Quiet Personal Reflection.
So Today . . . Saturday April 3, 2021, it is Time for all People, Not Just Christians, to Celebrate the Message of Christ, which I believe is More Meaningful this Year than Most Years, since the Message of Christ, which Conveys the Judeo/Christian Ethos of Social Values & Personal Integrity . . . Has Been Lost By Our Society.
IF NOT US . . . WHO WILL RIGHT THE WRONG?
It Is Up To Us To Reflect, Remember, React & Respond & Take What Has Been Wronged To Us . . . To Once Again Be Made Right.
In These Very Troubling Times, where Everything seems to be so Bleak, that Unless you’re Working for the Government or for a Government Agency, it’s Hard to even Get-Up in the Morning, Knowing that some LEFTIST Jerk in Government, Elected or Appointed is Going to Do or Say Something Really Dumbass, to Screw the Day Before the Day even Gets Going.
SOMETIMES . . . When Life Appears To Be Without Much Joy Or Something To Look Forward To, The Unanticipated Happens.
Being In LEFTIST States & LEFTIST Provinces . . . Means Being Locked-Down At Best . . . And Controlled By Government-Lackeys At Worst . . . And No One in Positions of Authority Can Really Explain What’s Happening & Why the Government is Doing What the Government is Doing . . . Other Than Because.
But Because Is Not An Acceptable Answer, when Independent Evidence & Results from Open States like Florida & Texas Provide an Opposite Truth, Opposed to the “Truth” the Government Wants all of us to Accept at Government Face-Value – Is More Than Reason Enough For All Of Us To Stand Strong In Defiance.
And With Every Passing Day . . . By Using the Bromide of the China Virus, Climate Change, Carbon Tax and a New “Reset” of our National Economy – It Gets Worse – Not Better.
LET PROFESSIONAL SPORT (MLB/NFL/NBA) BE HUNG BY THEIR OWN PETARD:
The Consequences Are Starting To Churn In The Cauldron Of Men, Women & Legislators Ready To Explode.
And with the Visceral Negative Reaction by the American Neo-Communists (Democrats) and their Lobbyists to Constitutional Americans to Legitimate (Past Time) Election Laws, which Do their Best to Guarantee an Organized Federal Election Free from Abuse, and to be Available to all who Want to be Heard & Counted in Honest State & National Elections . . . One Has To Question – What’s Wrong With The People & Corporations Which Do Not Want To Ensure Election Integrity?
ANNE & I ARE STILL DEVASTATED OVER THE DEATH OF OUR BELOVED STRYKER:
BUT LIKE I WROTE . . . In A Preceding Paragraph – When Life Looks Bleak, very Often, Unintended things Happen, which Happened to Anne & Myself this Past Thursday.
HIS NAME IS TAVOR . . . AND NO DOG IN THE WORLD CAN EVER REPLACE STRYKER:
I Won’t Go Into It In Great Detail, Which I Will Save For A Future Podcast.
When One Least Expects It & In The Least Likely Place . . . Anne & I Met A Husband & His Wife who Own & Manage an Incredible German Shepherd Breeding & Kennel Facility, which also Includes . . . Personal, Law-Enforcement & Military Shepherd Training.
And Just As It Happened Almost By Spiritual Design . . . Two Couples of very Different Backgrounds, Cultures & Faiths Came Together at a Time when Ordering a Puppy, Especially an Exceptionally-Bred Puppy, Meant Going Onto a Waiting List that Could Take Two Years for Fruition – But this Incredible Couple just Had a Litter of 5-German Shepherd Dogs . . . All With 100% European Breeding, and after what I Can Describe as an Almost Surreal Conversation over the Telephone, they Agreed to Show Anne and Myself their Puppies, which are Generally Like all other Breeders of Quality Dogs – Sold out Before the Female Dog Gives Birth.
But Somehow – We Clicked – As If We Knew This Couple . . . As Long Lost Soulmates.
And Within A Day . . . After Scoping out the Breeders’ Impressive Facilities and their Persona . . . Anne & I Had Purchased Our Male Pick Of The Litter. But Actually – This 4-Week Old Puppy Picked Us.
As The Breeders & Anne & Myself Were Bonding Just Before Making The Final Decision . . . I Asked the Husband How his Police & Military Bred & Trained Dogs Respond to the Loud Crack of Gunfire – To Which He Asked . . . Why Are You Interested In Gunfire? To which I Responded, Because Anne & I are Shooters & Visit the Gun Range Quite Often, and we will Bring the Dog we Own with us, just as we Brought Stryker.
And If Your Dogs React Negatively To Gunfire . . . Anne & I Will Have To Say No To Your Puppies.
GUNS IN LEFT-COAST BRITISH COLUMBIA ARE AS WELCOME AS THE CHINA VIRUS:
At That . . . The Breeder Asked – Do You Want To See My Brand-New Israeli TAVOR Semi-Automatic? And The Deal Was Done.
The TAVOR is Amongst the Best Military Carbines in the World, and the Fact that it is Israeli-Designed & Israeli-Made was the Cherry Atop the Whipped-Cream.
There Were Also Several Critical Battles Of Mount Tabor – From Where The Tavor Took Its Name . . .
First was by The Badly Outnumbered Israelites (12th Century BC) Versus the Heavily Armored Caninities (Steel Chariots), where the Israelites were Nonetheless Victorious. And then on April 6, 1799, Where Napoleon Defeated the Turks.
On April 21st Tavor Will Be 7 1/2 Weeks Old, When We Will Pick-Him-Up & Within A Few Days, We’ll Start The Long Drive Home.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
Give your new friend a pet for me. Drive safe.
The other day I was trying to think about which of all the dogs we have had did I love the most. I couldn’t because I loved them all so much. Tavor will have a great home!
Sounds like another instance of it being darkest (loss of Stryker) just before the dawn (finding Tavor). Blessings on you all.
Great editorial. Congratulations, how wonderful for you and Anne. Tavor is very lucky!! I know how that feels when a dog picks you for a family it is for life! The two dogs we have had in our married life picked us and we couldn’t have been happier. The medical cartel and its billionaire Big Tech accomplices have invoked the most potent frightening and enduring enemy of all – the Microbe. The Elites get rich the middle income Canadians disappear and the government keeps controlling us…FIGHT!!
Thank You Howard for all your kind words. We recently lost our family member dog named Rusty after 18 years. He passed over night in my wife’s arms, so we sorta know how you feel. And by the way, I hope you saw Tucker Carlson a couple of nights ago when he shredded your PM Trudeau as the ass he is. Safe travels home.
I Feel For You – Especially After 18-Years . . . HG:
Loved reading that a puppy picked you as his new family. A hug for Tavor when you pick him up and happy easter to you and Anne
As they say Bazrat HaShem
Do U need a place to reside on your way thru Alberta? I can offer a queen sized bed for U and Anne, a doggie bed for Tavor and meals while U R here.
All the best to you and your new family member!
There are no finer people on God’s earth than dog-lovers. Demorrhoids and Liberals and all other despicable fascists should be like fire hydrants.
In 218 BC Hannibal completely wiped out a entire Roman army sent out to stop him. On hearing the news the senate hurried to consider this disaster to their homes and family. Before reading out the scope of the disaster the speaker read out a eulogy to his dog who just past away. After a period of weeping and moaning the gavel was dropped with a bang and the session was then called to the business on hand – I think that was to mourn the loss of their brave sons .
Congratulations Howard on the new addition to your family. I would be very lucky if I had the chance to meet him and the rest of your family on you next trip to Central Texas. And Happy Easter to all of you and your subscribers.
Thank God for those mystical, out of the blue events. Natures way of helping us keep our balance.
G-d bless you and Anne! You are not far from the Kingdom of G-d. Praying for you and your loved ones. I still miss my cat Boots so much and keep thinking I hear him and see him out of the corners of my eyes. I am hoping for an all black young cat to call either “Shadow” or “Midnight”.NO other cat will replace beloved Boots, but I am praying that the Lord will find me the perfect pet like He has for you! I am sooo happy for U!
I love that story! Including the ending “Do you want to see my Tavor!!” You deserve every bit of that HAPPY ending.
We all have a “best” dog and I lost my two labs in the past two years. One never gets over those family members passing away. Love them both and constant companions. Proud for you guys and very timely but think I will wait a bit longer.
Howard, I know exactly what you mean when you said “Tavor picked you!” After my husband passed away, I went to a breeder intending to choose one of the other Labradoodles, but we didn’t “bond.” Fortunately, another little ‘Chocolate’ one kept his eyes on me, and said “Pick me, I’m the one!” So I chose him; then he proudly walked toward me & ‘told’ me his name was “Ryder!” He’s been the best dog I’ve ever, ever had, he makes me smile every single day. I’m so happy for you & Anne, and Tavor.
Congratulations on the newest family member. Happy Easter to you and Anne.
A very interesting and heartening read ☺️Thank you for brightening up me day xx
Israel has produced some darn fine weaponry – the Tavor, the Galil and the Uzi come to mind. My granddaughter and her husband have named two of their dogs after famous firearms manufacturers (Ruger and Beretta) and I think that’s a great idea. I’m sure that Tavor will never take Stryker’s place, but I’m sure he will help fill the hole left in your hearts. Best wishes for great times with him!
I wish you a wonderful future with your soon to be new best buddy, Tavor. I can’t imagine being without my own best buddy Casey, and in fact have had a dog most of my life. While we never forget or stop loving those who have gone on from this life, each passing in turn, brings a new fresh outlook of love and companionship. I know first hand the experiences, both sad and joyful. In reflection of these experiences, I believe our new best buddies have been pre-selected for us, at the perfect time.
Congratulations on your new dog, Tavor! It’s the best thing that could have happened to both of you because you needed to FILL that EMPTY SPACE ASAP! It takes quite a while to get adjusted to the LOSS of a pet, but Tavor will help you both to cope with your loss. Maybe you can post a photo of Tavor in a future editorial. AMEN!
SEE STRYKER SENT YOU TAVOR TO WATCH OVER YOU AND ANNE. GOD BLESS THE TAVOR YOUR NEW PUPPY YOU AND ANNE WILL BOTH LOVE VERY MUCH DEEP INTO YOUR HEARTS. NO STRYKER WILL NOT TAKE TAVOR PLACE. BUT AS HE WILL BE RIGHT AMONG THE LOVE YOU HAVE FOR YOUR Stryker HOPE TO SEE SOME PICTURES OF THE LITTLE FELLA AS HE GROWS UP TO BE A BIG BOY. HE TAVOR WILL LOVE YOU BOTH. WISHING YOU AND ANNE A VERY HAPPY EASTER, BE SAFE ON YOUR JOURNEY HOME. GOD SPEED. SHAREING HAPPY SMILES WITH YOU BOTH ON NEW TAVOR. :
Much appreciated your comments on your Easter Friday blog and also the story behind your new puppy acquisition.
I feel certain Tavor chose the best humans out there. . . . you and Anne need him to guide you along. Congratulations Tavor, for rescuing these wonderful folks! And have a blessed Easter, please.
Congratulation! There is nothing like the smell of little puppy breath.
I know how you feel Howard. We hit an old brindle lab dog on Hwy 15, 20 kl south of Smiths Falls (you’ll know where that is) two years ago. He was already an abused mess, old, bad eyesight, almost deaf, Lyme’s disease, a huge bald spot on his back, dry skin, course hair etc. so we decided to adopt him rather than have him returned to his owner. After two grand in vet bills, he had improved dramatically but unfortunately, his time had finally come and we put him down two weeks ago. We miss him
I Feel Your Pain! – HG:
Welcome to the Galganov family, Tavor. You will be super happy living with Howard and Anne.
Congratulations Howard/Anne on finding a new friend so soon to bring back to your home in Ontario. I remember my dogs more than some long forgotten friends. Happy Easter and Passover.
