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😊

Have a great Weekend!

Sunday Reflections…

We stayed up LATE last night, binge watching movies and eating Christmas goodies… I normally don’t sit up real late, so it was different & fun 🤩 Until this morning…

You ever sleep through the alarm 🚨 Late night = dog pile 😴 Let me sleep…

It’s been a Great Christmas season! But I think I’m ready for 2021… Now, for a shower 🚿

“Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering ‘it will be happier.’”
~ Alfred Lord Tennyson

Have a great Sunday!

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…

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.”

Throwback Thursday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Sometimes my blog writes itself 😊 Here’s a great #throwbackthursday picture for ya’! 

This picture was taken right after we finished the initial installation around 10 years ago.


We built this Pondless Waterfall about 10 years ago. We went back to clean up and service it recently and installed a brand new Foot Bridge! 

The new bridge is built from treated lumber and has several coats of paint. It should be around for the long haul! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

The original bridge was cedar and lasted a good while. This new bridge is built from treated lumber and should last much longer than 10 years 🤞🏻

Dog days are pleasant when you have a place to cool off 😊
PS: Dogs LOVE Waterfalls!


Throwback Thursday is a special day indeed 😊

Y’all have a wonderful day!

Sunday Reflections…

What a beautiful morning! The river is smooth as glass and it feels so good outside 😊 Sunday morning with my family, on the river, at the marina for breakfast is always a Great Day! ❤️

The dogs know what Sunday morning means… BACON 🥓💥

 

This is the final leg of Jo & I’s 26th Anniversary celebration 😊 We had to include Jacob and the pups to really celebrate! What better way than a day on the river 😊

“That beautiful season the Summer!
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.”
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Have a great Sunday!
