Mother’s Day

Thank you to all the mom’s who keep us safe, warm and fed.  We know we will always be provided for when our stomachs are empty, and when our water bowls need to be refilled.

Thank you for being sure we are comfortable and have a cozy bed to lie on and for the many gifts of toys.  You always find the time to be with us and give us the much needed activity we crave!

Thank you for making sure we receive the care we need when we are sick and comforting us when we don’t feel well.  Hugs are the best medicine!

Thank you for all the times you let us lay on you or lean on you, and you just stayed still knowing we needed some time to just be next to you.

Christmas Eve Happenings

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house…….

Diesel and I are trying to figure out what is going on all through the house! There’s noise, busy people in the other room, and music playing on the TV saying something about Ole’ Saint Nick? I don’t remember anyone with that name, do you Diesel?

Drax talk

So I thought it was time for  one of us to check it out.  I tried peeking around the corner into the other room.   I’m not really sure what I saw, or what it all means, but it sure looked pretty important. Why else would they close the gate on us?

WOW, I can see boxes wrapped in fancy paper!  Some neat looking toys, too! I can only hope they have a present on that table for me! Oh, and Diesel and Gunnar, too, of course!

presents

What?  An early Christmas present for us?  Thank you, it’s just what we wanted!  Tasty flavored nylabones, one beef and one chicken!  I just can’t choose which one I want more, but the chicken is what I got. I think Gunnar got a toy!

Sorry Diesel, I need to try the beef, and you didn’t look like you would mind sharing it with me!  I think what I would really like for Christmas is a larger bed. So Saint Nick, if you can, put that on my list for delivery tonight!

….And not a creature was stirring, not even Drax…

Fridays with Lou

It has begun! It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  No, not Christmas, HUNTING season.  You have yours and I have mine. The joy of hunting, the high paced flushing and retrieving of birds.  I’m on my game and ready for the season!  I had a little practice with this leaf. It just flew out of the tree and dangled on the fence,  a little disappointing it wasn’t a bird! Seriously, steady and still, watch me hold that pose!

As I sit in my backyard, I hear all the shooting going on at the K-R Ranch which is across the road. Yes, it is one of my most favorite places.  It can be a little frustrating knowing all that activity over there doesn’t include me, though.

Finally,  this past Saturday my best friend took me to the ranch, and we brought along one of his friends, Mr. Lou. We had such an amazing time our first day out.  I was swift, and I flushed so many birds over the 2 hours there. I even jumped the gun, and I mean that literally, and grabbed a couple of birds out of excitement before they could take flight. Sorry, I’ll try to curb my enthusiasm! It was a little tiring and I did take a brief rest, but you couldn’t stop me from soldiering on!

I’m told Mr.Lou had a great time too, and can’t wait until our next trip! This may even become a regular outing I hear on Fridays! This is my Field of Dreams come true!

It was a long day, an awesome day, but now on to my much deserved nap in the sun. I bet Diesel wishes he could join us.  See you next week Mr. Lou!

SMILING DOG CONTEST

“The Bark”, the magazine, is asking all owners of happy, smiling dogs and puppies to submit their favorite pictures to be included in the next several issues.

Here is my picture with best buddy, Diesel the Rottweiler,  which we are submitting.  We just came in from outside playing keep away, tug of war, catch me if you can, and well, I won every one if you must know!

Diesel and Drax

We are so excited to enter the contest!  So many happy dog pictures are displayed in the magazine, and always a great bunch of articles, I’m told, since I don’t read myself! So get out your cameras,  your cell phone, your goPro, whatever you use to capture the unmistakably HAPPY PICTURES of your Pup and send it in!

Smile Contest

Here is a picture of their subscription card, if anyone is interested.  ( I have not been paid nor have I been compensated for the endorsement of this magazine.) It’s a magazine about dogs, dogs and more dogs!  What more do you need to know?  DOGS!!  All breeds, all the time!

Well, I’m getting ready for another round of Keep Away in the yard with Diesel. Maybe I should give him a chance to win once in awhile.  Maybe, I’ll think on it!

Keep Smiling, My Friends!
