Tuesday Puppy Report 🐶

I introduced you all to Bell a couple of weeks ago and I wanted you to see how she grown 😊

Isn’t she the smartest looking little girl! She’s growing like a weed.

You don’t really notice the growth when you see them everyday… But she is progressing in every way. Smart as a whip!

I will send you another update later on.

PS: She’s sneaky 👇🏻

She loves to sneak away, then hide and watch you try to find her. She’s a handful 😊


Have a good night 😴

Sunday Reflections…

Last night was interesting to say the least.. We have a new puppy in the house 🐶 You forget just how involved it is. They have such incredible energy! Having to take them out to walk, clean up after their accidents, watch where you step and what you leave down… Etc. Then, at bedtime, the whining and barking is non stop for a while. Then there’s the late night walks, more water, more play, more whining… Wow! Energy without bounds.

Bell just loves her rabbit 🐇 and her bone 🦴 and her ball 🏀 and her new home I think 🏡 😊

Then, just when you think it might have been a mistake, that it’s gonna be so much work and effort… she crawls up on you and goes to sleep in your lap… Thats when you realize that Love is a four legged word 🐶❤️ You’ve got a new family member, a new baby… and the whining stops when you let her sleep beside you in the bed 🛌

Have a great Sunday 🙏🏻

Throwback Thursday

I made a “random” Facebook post today with a picture of our dog Ranger as a puppy. He was a big hit! He’s such a handsome dog and he was the cutest puppy ever 🐶 Honestly, I didn’t even think about the fact that it’s #throwbackthursday!

Isn’t he the cutest little puppy ever? 😊 Well, now he’s a 90 pound lap dog 🐕

So I thought I would just flip the same theme over to my blog today. What a great Throwback memory! He is now 4 years old 😊

Here’s a little collage over time from puppy to recent…

PS: I literally forgot to publish this earlier today 🙄 Hope you had a great Throwback Thursday!

Does Anyone Love You More Than Your Dog?

All my memories as far back as I can recall, involve a dog. “Mans best friend” didn’t get to be their calling card for no reason! I really believe that Dogs make us better people…

Just look at that face. This is Tracker. She was a great girl.

Yesterday we all got out to do a few things in the snow and ice. Long story short, I twisted my ankle a bit… And Scout is stove up a bit today as well. But, when she saw me in pain, she crawled over to me this morning to let me know that she loved me. Your dog wants to take care of you more than their self… What an admirable trait.

Believe it or not, my dog loves watching the sunset. Maybe it’s because we are watching and paying the setting sun ☀️ attention, but he loves it too ❤️
Let’s play in the snow! ❄️
One of my favorite pictures! My Dad, my 1st dog Heidi & Me wearing my his hat and coat 😊
Always ready to have some fun.

Im gonna try to be more like my dogs from now on. I think if we all did, the world would be a better place😊

Everyone LOVES Christmas ❤️ Even the Pets 🐈 🐕

We had such a relaxing, pleasant Christmas Day! We watched movies with our parents, opened a few presents, ate Lunch with mom & dad & then, took a YUGE nap 😴

last years Christmas picture. We didn’t all get together as usual this year. So many now have to be careful for health reasons. But everyone was missed and loved and included in our prayers 🙏🏻

I think the pets had more fun than anyone! They all received a present 🎁 of their own and literally tore them up by supper 🎅🏻😂

Yes, they each got their own! But neither was interested in old Gumby until there was a competition involved… Then, poor old Gumby 🥺

Even the kitty came by for Christmas 🎄 She’s really an outdoor cat 🐈 and only comes in when she wants too. Usually, she only asks to come in on special occasions when there’s more than usual activity, or if it’s really cold. Even then, she hides around the edges or up high somewhere 😊

She’s so funny. She got over there ‘out of sight’ and didn’t make a sound until we started eating… Then, she demanded some Christmas Ham! She got some too 😊

I am so thankful for the blessing of Christmas!

Luke 2:4-19 tells the reason and the true Blessing of Christmas ⭐️

Now, Christmas is behind us and it’s on to the New Year! In less than a week, it’s gonna be 2021! 😳 They say ‘Hindsight is 2020’ …. I think we are all ready to put 2020 in the rear view mirror 🪞

I hope you enjoy the rest of your Christmas weekend! 🙏🏻❤️🎄

Throwback Thursday Love

I found this one and it brought back some great memories! Jo, Jacob, me and scout when she was just a pup on a boat at the river enjoying a beautiful sunset… Don’t get much better 😊

I just love #throwbackthursday!

Have a great evening!

Throwback Thursday Love ❤️

Good morning! It’s #Throwbackthursday! I was looking through old photos of Halloween’s past and found this very special photo of Jacobs first best friend… his dog Tracker. Tracker was always a good sport and went along with any crazy 😜 dress up plan that Jacob and Jo came up with. She especially Loved Halloween 🎃 Probably all the treats and snacks that she got 😊 Dogs 🐶 are truly mans best friend!

Tracker was such a good girl 🐕 She loved dressing up and going out with us 😂 Here she is in one of her Halloween 🎃 costumes. I just love looking back on great memories! #throwbackthursday

Have a Great Throwback Thursday! And Happy Halloween 🎃 👻

Sunday Reflections…

Taking the time to smell the roses 🌹 and to watch the sunrises and sunsets is so important! It’s Labor Day weekend… The Summer seasons last big hurrah! Time to enter Fall… Does it seem like we should be here already? Wow! Summer has passed by like a sunset… 

Believe it or not, my dog loves watching the sunset with us. Maybe it’s because we are watching and paying attention to the setting sun ☀️ but he sure seems to love  it too ❤️

“It was sunsets that taught me that beauty sometimes only lasts for a couple of moments, and it was sunrises that showed me that all it takes is patience to experience it all over again.” — A.J. Lawless

Have a great Sunday!!

Sunday Reflections…

What a beautiful morning! The reward for a long week of playing catch up… the water is smooth, the wind is light and breakfast at the Marina calls… This is heaven for these dogs… They deserve it As well 😊 

It’s nice to have the whole bunch out on the River on a Sunday Morning! To the dogs it means one thing – Bacon 🥓

Y’all have a Great Sunday!!

“When the Man waked up he said, ‘What is Wild Dog doing here?’ And the Woman said, ‘His name is not Wild Dog any more, but the First Friend, because he will be our friend for always and always and always.”
