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!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daisies!

 

Bleeding Hearts

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Buster the Boston Terrier, in his element
White Iris

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope spends a lot of time looking for chipmunks
Stella and Buster in the background, waiting for me to throw the ball

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

The Joys of New Snow

Here are some pictures from our snow fall a few days ago. New snow and dogs go together. (click on any picture to enlarge)

Here's Clover, Otis and Buster beginning their wrestle/run in the snow
I love this photo, Buster looks like a wild eyed, dog boy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are sweet Tassen and Dora, they're a couple of my favorites who come to stay with me
These two are moving to Norway shortly, I will surely miss them and their owner who I've so enjoyed knowing

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Buster and Otis in a full sprint. I love Otis's tongue poking out like it's pointing the way
It looks like Dora has something to say to Otis

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the midst of it all Buster takes a breather
There's nothing like shoveling your face through the snow

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In tandem, these two are fast friends, literally
I do believe they're going to catch 'im!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Winter Walk

A walk from a week ago. I had Henry and Buster and we went with Ayumi, Clover and Poncho to Lake Louise. One of my favorite hikes close to me. (click on any pic to enlarge)

Buster fancy pants, he's a good boy, he is
It's hard to tell which way we're going on the steps. Technically we were going down

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nothing like a leap over logs to make for a good walk in the woods
Big Head Little Feet is what I like to call Poncho

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Henry and Clover wrestling on the path. Which can be complicated for us bipedals on the walk if we're not paying attention..
More wrestling while walking. A gift dogs master while very young

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Clover streaks over a log like a superhero in a yellow cape
I love bridges and other walkways that pop up on hikes, I'm like a kid that way.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you Ayumi Horie for taking most of the pictures!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I Only Bite My Best Friends

Here is a cute video Ayumi shot of Buster and Clover, Ayumi’s dog, using their mouths to show they care. I call this game, Who Can Eat Each The Other’s Mouth First.

Buster and Clover, best friends. (Click on photo to enlarge)

Henry and Rusty

These two aren’t inclined to play together for too long, but just enough for me to take a few pictures of these two handsome canines. You can click on any picture to enlarge it.

We had some sun yesterday. Every little bit counts. There's sweet Lexy in the picture too.
Contact!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rusty in the sun, shiny and bright.
Henry the Cute. Loads of personality, this one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Can Lexy do it?

Lexy is a sweet girl with a few socially awkward traits that are pretty cute. Here’s one of them.

Often dogs stop playing with each other when Lexy comes over to engage with them. They look at her like she's the awkward kid on the playground. Will Lexy be successful with Winston?

Come on Winston, she's a bit clumsy but she's loads of fun!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Winston thinks if he stands really still she'll eventually go away..
What? Winston makes his move!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lexy, this looks like success!
It's fun making friends to wrestle with

Insert Dog Here:

Here are some great Fall pictures of my cottage, the backyard and the views from it.

Just look at these pictures and Insert Dog Here:



I’m happy to have this space for myself and my dog boarders. Dogs stay in the cottage, not in kennels and get walks in the neighborhood or mini hikes in the local¬†Scenic Hudson Parks near me. Contact me if it feels like the right place for you and your dog!

 

Ozzie, the king of calm

Meet Ozzie, he's a very mellow guy rescued from down south. One of my favorites because he lets me kiss his squishy face for several minutes without losing patience.
When confronted with a days many options, he's one of those guys that says, "Hey, I'm up for it, let's just keep it chill."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even Hope the Cat goes out of her way to connect with Ozzie. She likes him so much I've seen her weave between his legs and bump her head against his face for a quick rub.
The only question is, When's he coming back?

More Gertie

 

Here’s a little peek into my yard with Gertie, she’s just a little slip of a girl. The sweetest Chihuahua I know.

Gertie likes being outside with me
Things are big in Gertie's world. Even grass is big.

 

 

 

 

There are certain rituals that must be upheld when outside. First, find some sort of insect or worm that has died and roll on it. This gives other dogs scent information about your good taste and status in the yard.

 

 

 

Also, squinting is customary to enhance the "very small dog in big world under a powerful sun" look

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But the most important task in Gertie's trip outside is sunning her bat like ears.

Thank you for visiting me in Robin's yard. I'll just be here squinting and sunning..
