Sound the bark alarm!

Clancy, what are you doing? Stop barking at the fence!
Clancy, stop that!!!! Why are you barking?
Mom, I have to tell you something.
The neighbors have chickens.

Don’t Let ‘Em Fool Ya

Have a Greyt Day!

Skirvee – From the tip of my ears to the end of my nose, it’s at least one mile!
Flocko – I’m just one them flat-nosed greyhounds.
Danny – My nose is such a good sniffer, I was a basset hound in my previous life.
Clancy – I’m the toughest, meanest dawg around. You just don’t wanna mess with me.

Skuse me, Mom

If it gets to be too much, just tell ’em to put it where the sun don’t shine.

Ten days left. Sigh


The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Woo Hoo! A snow day

Sunday evening, Blender ventured out for her last run of the evening. She looks out over her acre and is pleasantly surprised to see her acre covered in snow.

Prepared for a romp, Crystal challenges Flocko for the first and perhaps only, snow race of the season.

The next morning, when temperatures had dropped to the low-twenties, Minnie checks out her favorite spot to nap in the sun. She quickly realized that snoozing in the sun just wasn’t a happening thing.

For Pasha, his watering hole was still available, if only for a short time.

Flocko braved the elements to see what he could see.

And Clancy made a mad dash to romp in the sun before it disappeared.

December 3

Next came Clancy. He came as a foster and stayed forever. Also very shy in the beginning, he enjoys his days stretched out on a cushion in the middle of the floor.
