So many naps

Jori  

So little time.

I have to know, is everybody experiencing life move forward at break neck speed? Holy smokes, it is driving me nuts.

I long to be just like my greyhounds. Lay around for 22-23 hours a day and run around like a mad woman for 30 seconds.

Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce

Special orders are what you should get us…

I love our little old ladies, I really do. But holy smokes, trying to get them to eat their meals can be a huge, giant challenge. A meal without a special topper is torture and if it isn’t the right topper, then that constitutes true abuse.

I only wish they could sit down with a menu at every meal and show us exactly what they want, it would make our lives so much easier.

But no, some days, we have a true smorgasbord. Blender wants this, Jori wants that, Jillian wants none of those. And Barney, why he would eat everything they don’t want and it it drives him crazy when they don’t eat.

Yup, ya gotta love those senior girlies.

Oh ya

I am so ready for the week-end.

I think I am going to have to start a petition suggesting that we work two days and have five days off. I’ll bet I could rally a lot of support for that idea.

Yummy new beds

Jori

Costco got in these new luxury beds. They are topped with a decadent faux fur and  the greyhounds absolutely love them.

Ahhhhhhh.

I’m fairly certain that we have probably bought more beds from Costco than any other member.

Holy greyhound, how did that happen?

Today is Jori’s birthday. I brought her home as a foster when she was 18 months old. She has always been a shy dog around strangers, didn’t enjoy car rides so much and was a universal blood donor. All of that happened in a flash.

Karen thought it was her 11th birthday, I thought maybe 12. But no, Jori is celebrating her 13th birthday. Where has the time gone?

Happy 13th birthday Jori!

A very good day

The fundraiser for the greyhounds today was awesome. We had a group of wonderful dogs come through. Several greyhounds and a few other breeds.

Wow, what a good day.

Girl power

Girl power

Jori is one of the most elegant hounds. She’s been with us since she was 18 months. She was one of those shy girls that really didn’t want to run. It took her no time to become a couch potato though.

She’ll be 12 years old in February. I hate to watch our pack age. It feels like they should be young forever.

Seriously

So, I don’t think it comes as any surprise that what I want to do in life is pet photography. A bigger surprise would probably be how much I love dogs.

Yup, photography and dogs go together like peanut butter and jelly, macaroni and cheese.

I’ve spent a great deal of time over the last year photographing dogs and reading as much as I possibly can. So let’s just say that this week-end I’m dipping my toes in the pool.

The local humane society is have an event called the Willamutt Strut and I have a tent. Am I nervous you might ask? Sheesh, that is an understatement. I have spent the last two weeks getting all of my ducks in a row… and there must be a least a million to line up.

Come Saturday night I will either be crying in my beer or so pumped I can’t stand myself or a melted pile of goo. Yes, the weather is supposed to be 100°.

Seriously, does Saturday have to be the hottest day of the year? Regardless of the weather, I have no doubt that we will have a great time.
