Spring flowers in the yard

I moved into my little cottage in late September and this is my first Spring here. I am so pleased with how beautiful the yard is. I spend many hours outside with the dogs in this great environment. (click on any pic to enlarge)

Here's the row of blooming flowers on one side of the yard
I would love to tell you the names of the flowers but, although I can care for them, I don't remember all
So lovely!

Hope spends a lot of time looking for chipmunks

I'm happy here, so are my dogs. Come by and visit if you like the idea of your dog staying too





Dogs dressed (well mostly), In Japan

Ayumi and I went to Japan a few weeks ago. It was my second time there and this time was even better than the first. We visited Nikko and Tokyo and here are some of the dogs we met. (click on any pic to enlarge)

We met this pug in Nikko on a rainy day at Toshogu Shrine
She had style, she had grace, she had a person who wore long socks











Sometimes you just have to carry your dachshund..
..and your Yorkie. It's hard being a dog in Japan..

Most of my pictures are of dogs in the arms of their people aren't they?













Dachshunds are so popular here.
