Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone.

We have been absent for a good cause. We are helping Mom help some family with homeschooling via Skype. Mom started doing read alouds via Skype for some younger relatives who are home schooled this summer and it keeps her kind of busy. While one child went back to a Charter school in the fall she still reads to two kids every day. Over the summer we read about the American Revolution, Ancient Egypt, and the Middle Ages. We also got to hear some awesome fictional stories. We are becoming very educated dogs. This fall we've been learning our grammar listening to School House Rock Grammar. We've also developed a taste for poetry. We like Jack Prelutsky and Shel Silverstein over the more traditional poetry favored by the kids' program, but Mom manages to slip all of them in there so we are getting a variety.

As for Halloween we never know quite what to make of a holiday that has people constantly ringing our doorbells, demanding candy, wanting to pet us, and then leaving only to have another group come up and do the same thing. It is all rather confusing and some what disturbing.

Hope you all have a peaceful and Happy Halloween.

Katy's 8th Gotcha Day!!!

We made Mom prepost mine when she posted Annie's so she wouldn't forget.

Now Katy how could I forget you my little Sheltie Princess. You were such a special delight when we picked you up all those Labor Day weekends ago. Bailey wasn't sure what to make of the situation until he knew you were leaving with us. Annie has thought the sun rose and set with you since she first met you. You are one special girl and we love you very much. We feel very blessed that you came to us from Sheltie Rescue.

Happy 2nd Gotcha Day Annie!!!

We seem to drop off the map in the summer but we weren't going to miss Annie's gotcha day again like Mom did last year. You have been such a blessing dear Baby Girl. We can't how lonely we would be if you hadn't come into our lives when you did. Every day you remind us just how blessed we are to have you.

Friday Flowers: Dahlias

Mom loves these big pink flowers and the bees seem to be attracted to them as well. The bees make getting the pictures all the more challenging.

Purple Iris

These bloomed back in May and are one of Mom's favorite flowers. They are especially important to her as they were part of Dog's Dad's Uncle's garden. He harvested several perennials to help us get our garden started when Dog Dad and Mom moved here. He has since passed on but every year when they come up Mom says it is the best memorial to a wonderful man.

Friday Flowers: Lilac Bush

Since we only post our flowers on Fridays it is now summer and still posting our spring flowers. However, Mom is insisting on not skipping her favorites, so it is summer and you are still seeing our spring flowers. It's just a Mom thing.

When we moved here Mom was thrilled to find we had a Lilac Bush in the back yard. She loves the color and smell of Lilacs. It's had trouble during some of the windy and wild winters of the last few years, but this has been one of its stronger blooming years.

Thankful Thursday: Bunnnies Stayed in Front Yard

Mom is grateful these bunnies stayed in front yard where we aren't allowed as it isn't fenced. Therefore she doesn't have to worry about the safety of the bunnies.

Thankful Thursday: Bunny is grateful we are oblivous

Dog Dad caught these pictures of us. Do you see the bunny boldly eating clover in the back? We didn't. Yes, we are embarrassed. We missed the critter right behind us as we were watching dog Dad.

Treat Ball Birthday Party

While we snuggle with our stuffies, we don't play too much with our toys, except our treat balls. So Dog Dad and Mom instead of buying new toys have resorted to treat ball parties for special occasions. As you can see Mom and Dad hunted down our treat balls and prepped them before the party began.

It was every girl for herself.

Much later after dinner, we finished off the day with birthday cookies.

Look Who Is Back?

Mom isn't thrilled. The snake was enjoying a rock sun bath and wasn't about to move. We also failed to notice it was there adding to her anxiety. Honestly we can't be on duty all the time. Even we need breaks. OK so we did literally walk right by it without noticing, but the world isn't perfect.

Happy 10th Birthday Katy!

Happy Birthday my sweet girl. I have no idea how you could possibly be 10 years old. You have the energy of a puppy. We are so proud of you baby girl. Since you lost Bailey you have worked so hard at becoming more confident and able to deal with things on your own. While you might have a tendency to want things your own way, you also take care of Annie and make sure she knows she's loved and cared for every day. She couldn't have asked for a better friend to start her new life with in a new home.

Remembering Bailey

It's hard to believe it's been 2 years already, but time does fly. We haven't forgotten you baby boy. I do find it funny that even though Annie is so much smaller than you, people who haven't seen us in a while just remember us having one light and one dark Sheltie and are shocked to realize Annie has been with us for almost 2 years now.

We were truly blessed that of all the people who could have adopted an adorable rare Sheltie puppy to be available in rescue somehow you found us. I will never stop being grateful for that. You brought such joy and kindness where ever you went. Sadly, I think you might have missed your calling as a therapy dog. You had all the natural instincts that just can't be taught.

Enjoy your freedom over the Rainbow Bridge dear boy. You have earned your wings.
