Friday Flowers

This is what comes of living in New England folks. Yesterday we posted pictures of snow. Today the snow has melted and we have pictures of the daffodils in bloom.

We are looking forward to our visit from the Easter Bunny. We hope he has lots of cool treats. Mom is talking about experimenting with treats in Easter Eggs. We'll see how that all works out. We wish all of you who celebrate a wonderful Easter holiday. We hope it is filled with lots of fun and treats.

It Snowed!

You know we love our snow cookies. We even get ice cubes in the summer we love the icy stuff so much. However, we were just starting to enjoy the joys of spring. The white stuff on the ground was unexpected. We had not placed an order. Our annual charity walks are just around the corner. We don't want Mom and Dad backing out because of weird weather. We'll admit we were perhaps a bit aggressive in our snow cookie prayers. However, we'd really like this white stuff to stop before it interferes with our Spring plans.

The Easter Bunny

Frankie and Ernie posted about the search for the Easter Bunny. We just wanted to let them know we had the great fortune to meet and have our picture taken with the Easter Bunny last year. He's HUGE. Makes sense he'd have to be in order to distribute all those eggs. He doesn't have a sleigh and all those reindeer to get around.

Mom searched and searched, but the Easter Bunny must have been too busy to make a return appearance this year. We are sad to have missed him, but glad we at least got the chance to see him once.

After chasing those tiny little bunnies, it was rather scary at first to see a Bunny bigger than Mom. However, when a bunny has dog treats, you find yourself strangely attracted to it.

Happy Birthday Dad!

It's Dog Dad's Birthday and we are so very excited to celebrate the day.

Thank you for another year of ball games, long walks, tummy rubs, and a shared love of our favorite sports teams. We hope for many more long years together. Have a day filled with love and laughs and don't forget some dog cookies.

Look What We Found!

Over the years, Mom has turned more to perennial gardening for her flowers. She loves the idea that no matter what the weather is like, her health, or other situations that get in the way of her gardening ambitions, there are always flowers that magically appear each year. She loves getting out as soon as the snow is gone to start checking for the crocus. We already missed the chance to get pictures of one that she saw just a couple of days ago.

We noticed the tulips are coming along. Mama has some daffodils ready, but they never have really taken to the environment here. The rest of perennials will be along, as it gets warmer. We’ve been protecting Dad’s asparagus garden. Those pesky rabbits are back. We are going to have a busy season protecting the veggie gardens. So far, the asparagus is our main duty as it is a perennial so it comes up without having to be planted. Mom and Dad will wait until after Memorial Day to plant the rest of the veggies. We are keeping in shape chasing the squirrels. They seem to have slowed down a bit during the winter. One barely made the tree this morning.

Bailey's Birthday Pics

Mom never got around to posting my birthday pics, so she promised she'd put them up today.

Katy and I had a great celebration. We played snow tag and it was amazing. We even got what Mom is hoping are the last of the snow cookies for the season. Mom is begging us to stop praying for snow cookies, but how can you not want that cold sweet treat?

After our evening kibble, we got these tasty birthday cookies. I liked the frosting off mine, but Katy kept dropping hers on the floor so the frosting would fall on the floor and she could pick it up in chunks.

I got two new stuffies to add to my collection. These are my favorites because they make sounds like the animals do. The cow moos and the duck quacks. Cow has been in time out a few times since he's arrived. I just can't help myself. I love the sound and once I get started, I get a little compulsive and its non-stop mooing. Mom says its like listening to a cow barn when I'm at my worst. As Mom's typing Katy is sitting on my cow. She thinks I don't know where he is, but I do. I just know if I distract Mom, she'll never finish this project.

We finished off the night with two bully sticks and a game of ball. Our friend gave me Kong tennis balls and we were thrilled to discover tennis balls can squeak!!! Who knew?
