I am a cookie jar

And this is what I see.

Cinderella, new to home life is gentle, plus her underbite helps her to take the cookies carefully.

Buddy is completely toothless and his bite is ever so gentle by default.

Crystal came from a home with small kids. I’d almost bet she was taught to have a very soft mouth when she took her cookies.

Minnie is pretty gentle, she is such a munch mouth though, she’s rather get her own cookies out of the cookie jar.

Not pictured is Flo. She prefers three or four fingers with her cookies.

Do not disturb

As I look around the room of wall to wall, floor to ceiling dog beds, I seriously have to wonder how they earned the nick-name

45 mile-per-hour couch potatoes?

And another snow day

I think I have time warped back to my childhood, back to the snow, the cold and the ice.

I’m freezing my butt off, but the guys with the furry coats don’t seem to have any problems with it at all.

Flocko “Take that you little stuffie!”

Flocko “Come on lil’ stuffie, we’re heading down the home stretch.”

Danny “It really is quite nippy out here and it doesn’t look any warmer over there.”

Crystal “Let’s go! This is fun!”

Crystal “Is this my best side for a snow shot?”

Maddie and Crystal A hound convoy.

Buddy “Hey, is anybody up there? Is it warmer?”

Adam “Bet you can’t see me, I put on my snow camouflage today.”

December 9




A flurry of activity happened after Joey came home. Talley was at the kennel at the same time and they looked at us and said “she really is a sweet girl, she’s just a little shy.” Ok,” we said, “we’ll meet her.” Yes siree, we shoulda just said load her up.

The next week-end an adoption event took place in town. Just thought we’d go say hi. There in the front was Buddy. He had just lost his home and was looking quite sad. “How about this one? He really isn’t happy in the kennel.” He was 70 lbs. of pure love and I knew in my heart he was all mine.

And then, our sweet little Oneco. We already knew what treasures senior dogs were. Another kennel favorite was on her way to become a garden hound.
