Squirrel II

My oh my - what has my neighbor gotten me for Xmas? My own squirrel?

Not sure if this is a trick?

Hhmmm... maybe if I lay here I can find out more information on this "squirrel"!

Maybe if I ignore it, it will go away?

Yikes - it has attacked!

Maybe if I be real still ~ it will go away?!?!

Maybe if I pretend I am asleep?????????

Yah - it's working!!!!!


I've gottcha!!!! Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha!

Stupid Squirrel!

Holy Cats it's cold outside!
Last night had to put the boots on the dogs for the first time this season. They really don't like them, but they don't try to take them off. Woke up this morning and it was minus 2. What a way to start the day - NOT! At least the wind wasn't blow'n too hard, or it would have been miserable. Like minus 2 isn't miserable?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Reject photo's

Here are a couple of reject Xmas cards - I think you will know why they are rejects!

And there are about 100 more, but you get the picture!

What a difference a day makes!

Well we got all the snow they predicted. My arms are killing me to prove it!. Wet HEAVY snow, but at least I got Xmas pictures done with snow! YEAH! Below are a couple of them. Haven't decided which one I like best to send out.

Love Hate


Well Winter has finally arrived! Big storm is a brewin' and I love the snow, so I am looking forward to it. The dogs love the first big snow too. They run around like they are crazy for quite a while. Wish I could get that excited about something - hey? I am also happy about the snow because the Xmas pictures just don't look that good when things are either green or brown in the background. Snow is a must, so it is coming just in the nick of time!


Having to shovel the snow : ~ ( The stupid hill on my driveway prevents me from going up it when there is about 2" or more of snow. So, instead of enjoying the snow with the dogs when I first get home I have to deal with THE DRIVEWAY! Yuck!!!! If I had a flat driveway, I'd probably be one of those people that just keeps driving over the snow, and never removes it! LOL!!!

Here are some Holiday photo's from years past. I'll post this year's as soon as I get them done!

Fall is Leaving

Well, winter will soon be here and I have been trying to clean out the shed to put some of the agility equipment in it before it snows. Boy, do I hate this time of year. Between raking leaves, cleaning up dead flower beds and saying goodbye to the sun for another six months, putting away the agility equipment just puts a nail in the coffin!

Brooklyn's mouth has healed up nicely - she just looks really weird when I look at her bite. It never was pretty, since she had an under bite, but a missing tooth just makes it even better - NOT!

Here is a picture with the dogs and the Fall leaves.

Jersey and his squirrel

Look what a BIG squirrel I got mom! I caught him eating the walnuts in our yard!

What did ya say? I can't hear you?!?!?!

Drop it????? Do I hafta?

OK :(


Did I hear her say TAKE IT? YIKES ~ I can do that!

Drop it? What's up with her? Can't she make up her mind? I guess I can.

Take it ~ again - wow I really have her trained!
This may seem gross, but when Jersey catches anything (mostly rabbits) I give it back to him when he drops it for me. What I found was the more I tried to get it away from him, the more he thought it was a game of chase ~ mom catch me if you can ~ and of course I can't! In the beginning it would be twenty minutes of me yelling at him to sit, stop, down, drop etc. all while he is prancing around the yard like he is king of the world, but keep away from mom! The first time I actually got him to drop it on his own (me not prying his jaws open to remove dead animal) I immediately told him to take it, and he was in shock. Looked at me like - is this a trick? Nope - take it. The more I play this game with him the faster he is willing to drop it on the first command. Now I don't let this go on forever (cause it is GROSS!), but he is trusting me more that he will get it back, so he is more willing to give it up. This is all in preparation for the day when I am running very late (or at 5 in the morning getting ready for an agility trial!) and he catches himself something good, and I can tell him to drop it and I will have no worries about chasing him around the yard for twenty minutes.


There is so much going on around here. I haven't posted for a while and now they are just pouring out. I'll save some, so they aren't all on the same day. Can't wait to post the one with Jersey's latest catch (Squirrel not rabbit!) But this post couldn't wait. My sister got a new puppy last night and I had to share the cutie pie. Right now her name is Isabella - or Bella - or Izzy, or I might call her Z!

I can't wait till I get my puppy next summer! Fun, Fun, Fun!!!! Or maybe it's Pee, Pee, Pee!

Missing Tooth

Here is the aftermath of Brooklyn's tooth. A friend suggested capping it instead of pulling it -
she would have looked stylin' with a front silver tooth!

She ended up having another tooth pulled also. There was what the vet called a large pocket on her very back tooth, so the vet said best to pull it while she's under. She's still a little tired a couple of days later, but I know she is feeling better, since the ball is now of interest again!
