A Day In The Yard

Spring’s coming and we’re spending more time outside chasing the ball and catching some sun. Here’s a few pictures of what we’re currently up to. (click on any picture to enlarge)

Buster fast on the tail of Clover
Some running and wrestling with Honest too










Catching the ball is very serious business, I always have their complete attention.
The antisipation builds











And they're off
This is what it looks like when you think the ball is closer to your mouth than it is. Fail










What it looks like when you think the ball's going high and it goes low
Paulette and Honest look like an old couple who've been together forever












Saying goodbye to Tassen and Dora who are moving to Norway with their Norwegian native human, Millie. I have cared for them often throughout the 8 or 9 months they and their human have lived here.

I’ve had them for six days as of today, Millie came and picked them up to begin their journeys abroad.

I love you very much, I will miss you.

They were two of the easiest dogs I've had the pleasure to board. Amiable, gentle and responsive.
Dora, always ready for interaction and very tolerant of face kisses, which can be rare in a dog











And sweet Tassen, he has my heart. A calm and self content boy, he would often sit out in the yard away from the other dogs and quietly watch the birds. His face always lit up when he saw me



Arizona Visit

I was out in Arizona visiting family, my mom especially. Here are her sweet pets, Ginger and Oreo. (click on any photo to enlarge)

Here's Ginger waiting for her walk, I think she's even holding her breath
Sweet Oreo, stopping for a moment so I can snap a shot of his gorgeous self












Hang on, let me get this itch in my ear
Ginger does have some odd ideas about where it's ok to hang out











Oreo finds the roof to be an excellent vantage point to greet us after our walk in the neighborhood


Cats are tall when they want to be










Ginger looking like she's in a magazine photo
After and extensive tour of the yard, "And here's my favorite tree to scratch on, take a picture of me under it"
