Friday Flowers: Crocus

After a long winter we had to start coxing Mom out of the house with promises of beautiful things to be seen. This was the first flower to catch her eye as the snow retreated and thus our first Friday flower post of the year. We hope you enjoy.

Monday Mischief: Paws in the Park

Hi Everyone, we are back. We got lost in all the snow. Mom and Dad traveled and then we just never got back to blogging. However, this weekend we attended Save a Dog's Paws in the Park at historic Wayside Inn and it seemed to be a great time to return to the world of blogging.

We had a wonderful time at the event. It was a bit warmer than normal for May. They had plenty of water stations. Bailey drank quite a bit. Katy was pretty stubborn about drinking outside the house bowls.

This year Paws had an agility try out and Bailey had fun participating in it, especially when he discovered tons of abandoned treats inside the tunnel. He made the tunnel roll when he turned around to pick up a few he'd missed. With her black coat, Katy was feeling a bit warm and decided to opt out.

We wanted so badly to participate in the musical hula hoops game, but we arrived just after the closed the entry for the game. We had fun watching as the players had to walk around the circle and sit in a hula hoop before the music stopped. The little dogs really had the edge slipping under the bigger dogs as the music stopped and edging them out of a spot in the circle.

We were pleased to find several other Shelties at the event. We don't often meet up with other Shelties.

Treats were flowing freely at all the vendors and we didn't hesitate to use our cuteness to get as much attention as possible.

Save a Dog is trying to purchase the building they are currently in and according to an article Mom read this morning, this was one of their most successful fundraisers ever. We wish them nothing but success as they continue trying to raise the funds they need to have a permanent home for their great work.

For those of you who live in the Massachusetts area and enjoy these events the Whisker Walk is coming up Sunday, June 7th at the Lancaster Fairgrounds from 11-3. This is the biggest event of the year and we try not to miss it. You can find more information at their website here.

Monday Mischief: The storm before the Blizzard of 2015

As we mentioned in a previous post Mom got behind with her Blogging. The weekend before the big blizzard we had another storm with wet heavier snow, just not so much of it. There was enough that our Jr. Sheep's Mom's weekend class was canceled, so we didn't get to play with our Jr. Sheep as promised. We were quite disappointed.

However, we did try to make the best of it by playing in the snow. Mom captured some pictures, but never got to post them. She decided they'd make a good Mischief Monday post.

We know not every dog loves snow, but we love playing in it, eating it, and yes, napping in it.

Blizzard of 2015

Mom has been very busy with Junior Sheep lately and hasn't done much bloggging. However, with the storm the sheep have been staying at their own home and Mom hopes to get some pictures taken for us to post.

This was the shot she got Tuesday of Bailey as Dog Dad was trying to measure our snow count.

Mom wanted to get some pictures of Dog Dad making the race track for us, but she never got out back to get them. She was looking a bit like a snowman after helping him snow blow the front driveway. Our race track is a square around the yard he shovels and tries to keep it clean for us so we have a place to play and do the potty stuff. Yesterday we discovered the snow was soft and fluffy and that when we banged into the walls it was like hitting a pillow. That started a game where we started slamming each other into the walls. It was great fun. Not something we can do with the usual ice walls we get.
