A little sunshine

To start your week.

Nope, nothing in life is free

We got a bit of an attitude from the red head a few weeks ago. It did not make me a happy camper.

And when momma ain’t happy, nobody’s happy. Timber got put on NILIF.

This dog blew me right out of the water. It took him a day to sit. Another day to shake, then shake with the other paw. Down was a walk in the park. I put his beloved Stella and Chewy treat on his paw and told him to leave it. He is amazing me. He leaves it. He stands. Now I’m trying to get him to gently jump up and give me a hug, we’re not doing so well with that one. All of the other commands he does. He just makes me laugh with joy.

Of course, it upset his tender tummy for a few days when the rules changed and if he doesn’t want to eat, he’s not so motivated.

Now that he’s feeling better, for just a few treats we can whip right the commands.

Ah yes, that’s our boyzoi.


Let the weekend begin

As we enter the oh so  coveted weekend, I am happy to report everyone has eaten everything for three straight meals.


Of course, no two dogs eat the same thing. Some like it rare, some like it slightly warmed. Some have to eat a special diet, some want the special diet ’cause they are just special.

Raw, grain-free, fancy expensive canned, kibble from Costco, kibble not from Costco.

Welcome to the Garden Bistro. May I tell you about our specials of the day? We are here to please you.

And nope, not one of them left us a tip. We’re just happy to see an empty bowl.

Have a greyt weekend everyone.

Thank you Mia

We met a new friend today. She is a most beautiful white and black greyhound that came over for a visit. She is new to Salem and her mom has been following our blog.

Her mom and dad thought she had too many toys, it wasn’t Mia’s idea, but they thought it might be nice if she shared her toys with our kids.

They hadn’t even left the driveway before Timber started checking out the bags to see what came. He thought it was his duty to check them out and one by one he pulled them out of the bags and placed them on the bed for closer inspection.

He was quite entertaining as he checked them all out. What surprised me the most was that he actually picked  a favorite.

He became so enamoured with the little lamb that I don’t think he is going to share it with anyone.

That does not look like the face of someone willing to share now does it?


Timber would like to tell Mia from the bottom of his heart, thank you. I love my little lamb.

We did sort of an impromptu photo session with Mia to thank her for her generosity, you can meet Mia on my photo blog at this link.


The answer my friend

Is blowing in the wind.

I sure don’t get coat action like that with the greyhounds when the wind the blows.

I love spring!

I love this time of year. The buds on the trees are turning into leaves, and in Salem so many of our trees are in bloom.

Today a gentle breeze blew through and the scents in the air were wonderful.

Ah yes, welcome back spring.

Made it!

His favorite treats in the whole wide world.

Rain days

Imagine if you will, the white beneath his feet is mud, thick and gooey mud. The white, fluffy flurries gently tickling his ears are wet raindrops coming in sideways and that beautiful long coat he’s wearing? Itsa blowing in the wind.

No, I am not humored. In just under 60 seconds we went from delightful snow to drenching rain.

Gimme back my snow.

Go ahead, admit it
