Crazy Girlfren is such a daddy's girl. Aria, at maybe 6 mos. old. Well before she came to us.
Tomorrow is trash day. So before I got busy on my afternoon project, I emptied the trash in a bag to take out. But I didn't notice that Jasper had followed me back into 'officer territory'. The bedrooms are off limits to the dogs, and are the realm of Bonzai, my ancient cat. Must have … Continue reading Jasper “F-s” around and finds out.
Christmas was a huge day here. First all the kids and grandkids were coming so we had to board Jasper and Aria. Jasper is a spaz and the grandkids get scared of him. Aria really doesn't like little people, and not being able to hide in her crate in quiet, she gets unpredictable. Well, unpredictable … Continue reading A big day, all around.
Not giving it up Of all the toys my dogs have, the one thing that will keep them entertained for hours is any sort of ball, usually a tennis ball, stuffed in a sock. Easy to throw, they have a blast with it. One of the local talk radio guys down here had the best … Continue reading Funny Dog Pic
I have tons of these pictures: Jethro with his Teddy We had to recover that stuffed dog, which we bought for a grandkid, before it was destroyed. But the big dude had to have a cuddle first. Now to the pain: Little Dude can't resist a van This is gonna hurt. Hell, it already did. … Continue reading Friday Dog Pic, and a Ride on the Pain Train
I think I'm going to start doing this. It's not like I don't have a few hundred funny moments during the week. I'm not going anywhere, thank you. Every time open my car door Jasper jumps in. Car=Fun, I'm going. Which is hilarious considering the only kind of car rides he's had in months are … Continue reading Funny Dog Pic Friday
Who doesn't like a cute dog? Jasper After a walk and playtime in the morning, the pups find their happy, private places to chill. The two dudes tend to hang together. So what you can't see is Jethro sprawled, literally, halfway across the room on the floor below. What I didn't notice at the time … Continue reading Cute Dog Pic
We were away visiting family this weekend, leaving the dogs with my son's friend house/dog sitting. This is infinitely preferable to boarding them. It's vastly cheaper, by several orders of magnitude and it's better for them as they don't have to vary their routine all that much. It also helps that he's been added to … Continue reading A Good Walk
I love my dogs. Anyone that reads this blog knows that. But they are pricey. They have to go to their doctor every year, and that ain't covered. Sorry, It's cash on the barrel head for that service, Mein Freundes. Wut? A vet visit? Aria is a rescue. Her mom was adopted by a family … Continue reading A Visit to the Vet
The weather here lately is stunning. This morning it was 65 degrees, sunny, with zero humidity. Here in Dallas, it's as if we are being rewarded after the beatdown of the summer heat, which this year wasn't so bad. Sort of like getting that lollipop after a shot at the doctors. Funny, I've never gotten … Continue reading Clearing the Mind
