We just had a little rain, now sun is trying to come out. Polar just loves to grab my broom when I am sweeping, she does not let go. Had a quiet night, the boys stayed home from fishing. Hope you have a nice day, take care, Dot

We aren't having any fun trying to train our puppy. Tired of cleaning up messes. She is learning about the biting and has lots of toys for her to chew. Takes time and patience. A cloudy day here, hopefully it doesn't stay like this all day. Kids are still sleeping so I am enjoying a quiet morning. Take care, Dot

We had a windy and cloudy day, this morning it rained. The boys went swimming yesterday and played their video games. I got some housework and laundry done while they were out of the house. Time and love will help Tyler with his aggression, I hope. Poor thing. Take care, Dot

I had a nice day, enjoyed the deck and did a little housework. Grilled some dogs and cheddar dogs for supper. Took the dog for a walk to the mall and she got attacked by a tiny weiner dog, haha. She is such a wimp. Hope you have a great day, take care, Dot

Hello!
Look at you all fancy with your designer puppy indeed hehe. Glad to hear he's doing so much better. We had a few scares with Elfi as she had just had a hernia repair the day before we got her and she didn't heal quite as quickly from the stitches so had to take her back 3x to the awesome vet at the humane society, which was nice of them, it was all included in her whopping $40 adoption fee. She's still such a riot, though her and the cats are not in my best graces today, after finally getting to sleep around 3:30am, they all decided the sun peeking up at around 4am meant I should get up and let them out and feed them. And they were all very vocal and annoying about it too. Had a very busy day with errands, shopping and chores, and having bf home with a very nasty cold, he's got fever and all the goodies to go with, but my son's back is killing him again. He's very tall and grew too fast and looks like he already has disc problems at his old age of not quite 22. Poor kid! Maybe he and I will both get surgery together haha. Anyway, all is ok here, just tired, busy and enjoying too many books that need reviews. Hopefully Weds and Thurs I can get them sorted out and blogged. Oh, I don't miss pondcreatures heat. I grew up around that area, and yea, I still painfully remember sunburns, and that 120-130 heat that was just oppressive with the humidity. We used to lay in the backyard of my lifelong friend's house, a huge group of us kids, as she and I are both the oldest of 3, so us 6 plus whatever other friends we had over, upwards of 15 or so brats, just on towels and tarps with a sprinkler on full and be giggling and looking at stars and/or the moon all night long. When the sun came up we'd be so tired and already dreading the day to come unless we knew we were going to the lake or river hehe. Made and ate a lot of Popsicle's too! Hugs to you all!

My silly pup likes to sleep right on my pillow. Hogs the whole thing, she is growing quickly, loves to play. Rained a little this morning and it is windy and cooler. Had a bbq and the kids ate at the restaurant. Bill is still working on the water and got a new pump to hook up. Hope you have a great day, take care, Dot

Hello!
OH MY GOODNESS! He's sooooo CUTE! Hopefully he'll be healthy and happy soon. He's certainly going to love his new furever home once he gets to feeling better. Elfi is pretty funny, she's gotten quite wary of bigger dogs since she's had a few sore hip episodes. The hunt is still on for a puppy for us. When it's meant to be it will happen. She's so full of goofiness and will love having a sibling to play with. The cats just aren't quite up to tug o' war etc hehe. I've been doing better on most of the meds, but one didn't work for me, makes me dizzy and nauseous so not much help there but the pain meds are ok and don't cause me any side effects that would keep me from living life and driving so that's super. Not much else to tell. Been reading, but forgetting to write the reviews, so have about 6 books I need to do a quick review on, and then have about 8 that need to be read/reviewed. And have been playing what we consider the hardest Zelda game, Majora's Mask...it's like Groundhog Day, and is the most frustrating! My son and I have been taking turns. He's better at a lot of it than I am though, hehe. Must be a kid thing hehe. Well, guess at almost 22 he isn't that much of a kid! HUGS to you all!

Hi
We are having some cooler days. I got the grass cut in the back yard, got to work on the front today. We went to town and Jake got a new fishing rod for his birthday next week. Bill took the kids fishing last night and they got some. Jakes buddy will be coming back out today, probably for the weekend. Jake and his friends take their rods and fish off shore, sometimes they even catch a fish, hehe, but they have fun. Hope you have a great day, take care, Dot

Hi
Tyler is a sweetie. My dad always teased about painting some eyebrows on buddy, hehe. I hope that it doesn't take long before he gets accustomed to living with you. It takes time, we keep comparing Polar to buddy, but no dog will ever replace buddy, she was special. I am sure it is the same with Rufus. But we should be grateful for all the special time that we have with them, pets are quite adorable and are a special part of our lives. We are slowly training Polar and she is loving it here. We are learning her little quirks and when she gets her playful times. Take care, Dot

Hello!
So, I read you got a new furbaby to love. How is it going? All is ok here, had a very, very busy day yesterday, looking forward to not much to do today other than dishes. Whew, I'm still worn out from yesterday! Or am I just lazy, it's hard to tell in this heat hehe. Gotta make this short, need to get Elfi some breakfast, she just decided she's hungry and this skinny puppy doesn't eat near enough! HUGS!

We are slowly adjusting to having a new puppy around, she is not like buddy and we have a lot of training to do to. It is raining today, kids brought the dog to the beach and tired her out. Bill and brian will be back tonight and we head to the Soo for the night tomorrow. Hope you have a great day, take care, Dot

The new pup will take some getting used to. she made a few messes in the house but will get trained fast. Much cooler here and cloudy. The kids headed to the beach and left the dog with me. She likes to sleep on Brian clothes, maybe she is used to being with him since he had her for the first couple days. I hope you have a nice day, take care, Dot

We had another super hot day, cut the grass and and then relaxed. Kids went swimming and had a fire last night, we got rain last night, which was nice for the gardens. jake decided to call the new pup polar, we will see if it sticks once we see her. We have to get her to the vet as she doesn't have any shots yet, and find out when we can get her fixed. Hope you have a great day, take care, Dot

We had rain off and on during the day, cleared up in the evening and the boys went swimming. Break in the clouds this morning so they headed back swimming. We haven't decided on a name for the pup yet, will decide when we meet her. I was still wishing for a buddy sized dog, maybe still look for another. I am glad your getting another dog as well. Gotta get some housework done while the house is empty, took 2 fish tanks down yesterday and moved some furniture around. Take care, Dot

Hello!
I'm feeling so much better now that pain isn't the constant force. It's still there, but a lot more manageable now! YAY! I'm actually on a muscle relaxer that MS patients usually get, how's that for friendship?! hehe. Anyway, I have been getting some decent sleep, and even though it's still only a few hours or so, I've been that kind of sleeper my WHOLE life, used to drive my folks nuts when I was a baby/toddler. They used to keep a low shelf in the fridge with goodies for me if I got up in the middle of the night and thought I needed a drink or some grapes or something once I was old enough to wander around the house without being watched every second so they could get more than my few hours of sleep hehe. They were really good parents until I hit about 4th grade, then everything changed...oh well, I survived and life is good! Yes, I would LOVE to get to pondcreatures place and it is the first road trip on my list of get out of the house trips. I just want to go in the fall so all the colors will be amazing and the temps more mild. I grew up near her area, so am pretty familiar...well. sort of, it was a LONG TIME AGO IN A GALAXY FAR AWAY hehe. That would be double fun if you ever made it this way too. Oh, Elfi got a bird somehow this morning, and discovered the joys of a live squeaky toy. Unfortunately for it, I didn't realize why birds were going crazy out back until I realized they were in my yard squawking away, and well, by then it was too late for the poor creepy thing. You may remember, I have serious bird phobia! Had to get the longest shovel to deal with it. Anyway, life is pretty good over all and sure hope your weekend is a good one too! HUGS!

We had a nice relaxing day. My mom stopped by for a visit and got to see Jakes report card. Today turned cloudy and humid, looks like rain. Glad you liked the photos, not sure the name of the plant, a friend gave them to me,but that sounds right. Not much happening today, get to relax and get a little housework out of the way.

Hello!
It's hot but breezy here. Had to take my MA to her first cataract surgery appt. That made for a nice drive and a fun visit with her, well, except for the part where she was in surgery hehe. While I was gone, Elfi and the cats drove bf NUTS hehe. He says wow, do they panic. I said only cuz he's there too so they are preying upon him hehe. Actually, if no one is home they all go lay on our bed and sometimes don't even notice when I do get back, coming down the stairs all yawny and stretchy and lazy hehe. If some one is here though, they act like the sky is falling. It's pretty funny too I'm told hehe. Mo did the same thing, she'd huff and sigh and then go lay down and give everyone that look that reminds them they aren't ME hehehe. I cannot deny how much I love my furry minions hehe. Anyway, I actually do as much pet shopping online as I can, drsfostersmith being my first stop. Got a nice order coming from them in a few days too, actually. Too bad they don't EBates, but they have great deals anyway. Well, Zelda is calling me, hehe. I'll catch up more later. Try to stay cool, and say hey to RonnieLee!

I did lots of weeding in my gardens too, but the grass still likes to grow in them. We had a nice day and went out in the boat fishing in the afternoon, came home and bbqed then headed back out for evening fishing. We dropped the boys at the beach when they got bored of fishing. Of course I outfished the boys. We may head out fishing again this evening. One more week and then Jake is off for the summer. We can sleep in hurray. Take care, Dot

Hello!
I haven't been reading as much, been busy pup hunting, which lead to me reading about all kinds of dogs and some of them have the saddest stories that I get all misty eyed and wish I could save most of them. Some people should just be pinata's and not pet owners! Anyway, been enjoying too many books, and also found some that I'm not sure I'll even review as I have NOTHING good to say about them. It happens sometimes, and I'm just not feeling mean right now. The whole good karma find another perfect puppy thing comes to mind. Yea, purring pups indeed. Part of why sometimes people think they are growling at babies or whatever it is that makes them happy enough. Mo had a big scary purr. It was scarier than her bark! Too funny too. We loved it. Elfi has a seriously deep mean bark when she's scared or protective, it's hilarious! Her nary chest making that deep a noise, even Mo had a higher pitch to her mean bark! hehe. None of my dogs barks much, ever. I always see what they are barking at and we talk about them getting bad guys hehe, and reassuring them when it's good guys they are feeling threatened by. Elfi LOVES to play bark with Loki though, she gets all high pitched and funny and they have their games they play. Sometimes too noisy though and we have to remind them of inside voices hehe. It's been quite chilly here lately actually, but alas, summers heat is bound to come soon enough, in spite of my best efforts to keep things cooler hehe. Hugs to you, and too funny about Rufus keeping the big dogs in line! What a character!

He was just a small dog the size of an over grown hamster, he went home this morning and we cleaned up the pee stains, hehe. A recliner would be an awesome gift, sure he would love it. We are having a cloudy day and there is road construction going on in town, they are putting down new ashpalt, so that will be loud and messy. Brian is heading home afterwork and will be back sunday, but we will be in the soo that night. Jake and his buddy are taking the day off school and plan on swimming in the pool.

Hello!
It's hot, dry and very windy today. UGH. Elfi and I are going to start working on some agility things. I'll set her up some jumps in the backyard once I finish getting it cleaned and some other things planted. My SIL and my son both work at the same local nursery right now, so I'll get some awesome discounts once I have monies to spend on plants again. I haven't forgotten about your box o'goodies, it's just currently buried in my now insanely cluttered art room! My daughter coming home is great but now it's worse in that room! It'll all get straightened out quite soon though. She just got a job and will be living with her best buddy as it's closer to work. Plus, no one wants to live in mom's living room, jeesh! I am finally getting used to the idea of having an 'empty nest' though. Getting all the kids' stuff out of the house and garage will mean LOTS more room for art stuff. Plus bf can make a man cave out of the extra bedroom so he won't have to use the garage anymore. Which means more room for art stuff as then I can set up the grinder and some other equipment I need. Plus some of the chemicals I use aren't really made for indoors. Elfi is doing great, she's so funny. Her and Loki were such a big help with yardwork yesterday. hehe. And last night I got out my super bubble mix - my own blend - and my big wand and Elfi had a ball chasing bubbles in the evening breeze. Yea, I wonder if there is perhaps some Saluki in her, if you google Saluki, one of the first dogs is colored like Elfi and those legs and that cut in sunken stomach thing really makes us wonder. Her behavior is sure Kelpie, and she's such a quick learner! Didn't know they were among the top for dog brainiacs and she sure loves to learn. What she wants to learn anyway! hehe. I think she'll enjoy agility stuff, she's so busy and eager to please. Well, chores need doing and I want to enjoy more reading in front of the a/c. We have been getting clouds in the evenings which has been nice but it's not raining here, just teases us...dratted old mother nature! HUGS!
