Most folks love a good dog story and we've a good one to tell.  This is a tribute to Bridger and Clementine – the comical    and tender stories of their antics, their interactions with us and with others, our love for them and their love for us.  As the story says, "It seems to us that the construction of Basset Hounds is proof positive of God's magnificent sense of humor." 

If you're a dog lover you'll find lots of "Awwww" and paw moments in this.

Ranch Life

by Phoebe Cranor

Published on October 26, 1996 – John & Phoebe's 50th Wedding Anniversary

179 pages



These stories are comical accounts of Phoebe's 50+ years on a ranch in Gunnison, Colorado after marrying John in 1946 with no prior knowledge of how to do it.  They are just as funny today as they were when they first appeared in the Gunnison Country Times starting in 1995 for five years and are in the same order as when published by the newspaper.  Putting them into book form came about because so many people asked Phoebe for that whenever they had missed one of the articles in the newspaper.  You'll find a great deal of entertaining Gunnison Valley history in this book.
