We had a hot muggy day yesterday and last night we got some rain. So may have to stay indoors and do some housework. Polar is getting better, I must admit that I have less messes/accidents to clean up. She sure eats lots, always filling her bowls. She is starting to bark, loves hanging out at the neighbors with his big dog. It is good that they get along so well, they roll around and play for hours. Do you have any more holidays planned for this year? Hope you have a nice day, take care, Dot

It got warm so I mowed the grass. Jake had a buddy over for a bit, til he got on his nerves, hehe. Now he knows what I feel. He thought we were going to have a wicked storm the other night, he heard a lot of banging outside. I told him it was the train at the station banging around, silly kid. Hope Tyler is doing great, and you of course. Is your newphew still in the rental across the street? My friend from out of town stopped by with some smoked fish and some fresh veggies from her garden for us, we traded some fresh pickeral for that, yum. Take care, have a nice day, Dot

Glad Tyler is doing great. Polar and the neighbors dog play all day and really tire each other out. Jake and his friend had a fire last night and roasted some marshmallows, then polar stole the bag and they had to chase her all over to get them back. Silly pup. Hope you have a nice weekend, take care, Dot

Hello!
the neuro appt was fun, and we're just waiting to hear when we'll have to get the other xrays and our MRI's, then will see the doc and start figuring out what to do for pain management and if surgery is in order for either of us. More waiting but not too long at least. I go to my doc on Monday, we have a lot to get done not neck related. Elfi and I enjoyed a really nice 4 mile walk this morning. then a bit ago the UPS man came with one large and one small box, both for pets, so Elfi helped unpack the large box while Loki waited patiently for all the goodies to come out. Then Loki got the box, Elfi got to sample all the treats (how I love DrsFosterSmith) and after Loki established his FORT, JUST HIS and HIS ALONE FORT BOX, he's now napping in it, Elfi is snoring softly on the couch and me, I'm just grinning at both of them. Well, with any luck I'll get to the shelter to look at the 5 dogs I want to meet. Kinda got a lot going on, but it'll all work out. Oh yes, do send your youtube info, I'd surely enjoy that! Well, need to get a nap in, pets are making me lazy hehe. HUGS!

The training takes a lot of patience. Polar has been good, still learning. Likes to play with the neighbors dog and they both tire themselves out. The boys went fishing last night and got a few. Hope you have a nice day, take care, Dot

Today finally cleared up, a little cool still. Jake took the dog to the beach but he said it was a windy. Not to much left of summer holidays so you have to enjoy the nice days. Tonight the boys went fishing, Brian had a friend with a couple little girls that went too. They took the pup to keep the kids occupied. I hope they catch some fish to make them happy. Take care and have a nice night, Dot

I had a nice quiet day, cold and wet outdoors so I just did some inside lazing around. Steady cleaning up after the pup so I have no fear of getting bored of housework, hehe. Jake had a buddy sleepover and they are still snoozing away. Polar has crawled on the couch with him. I have let my hair grow, used to chop it off all the time when I had bangs. I hope you have a nice day, take care, Dot

Hello!
Well, we were worn out from the neuro appt, whew. We'll pup hunt at the humane society soon though. Might go tomorrow with a neighbor. We've had great lightning storms at night with a bit of thunder and a bit of rain. Luckily so far no wild fires though. Guess we burned out the past 2 years so not much left. Not like in California though. Pondcreature is only about 4 hours from us, likely a bit less, they have some nasty fires there this year. Year before the area my grandparents lived for a million years and I grew up in got totally burned up too. Scary. Well, Elfi and I had fun today, had a huge walk, that wasn't meant to be as huge as it was but ran into a young boy who got lost, so got him back home, after having to go back to my house to googlemap it...he was only 3 blocks away from home, so we walked 3 blocks to my home, then 6 blocks back to his! But this neighborhood is crazy set up. Our street in particular, if you don't know where you are going, then you are truly lost we joke on our block. Some day you should map my address, you'll crack up at how crazy it is to walk this area! Mo and I got turned around more than once cuz she was determined to go down a street I'd tell her was not a good idea. After a few adventures like that she learned to listen to me about going home hehe. That dog...still miss her! Anyway, crazy amount of celebrity deaths, one of my true faves Ms Bacall is no longer with us. heavy sigh, she was an amazing woman indeed. Well, enough of that talk. So you'll get to have a Sept to yourself? Hopefully it'll be chilly and rainy for you while you enjoy hogging the tv HAHA. Hugs to you and Tyler.

Hello!
It's been rainy, mostly at night ahhhh. And last night around midnight we had a horizontal lightning storm! It was lovely, and the rains that came with were even more so. Elfi notices thunder but it really doesn't affect her much. Mo used to come unglued and bark at the sky hehe. We miss her so very much! I'm going to look at the humane society on Tuesday after my son and I go to our new neurosurgeon. There are 4 dogs I want to see, one is a Rottie, the other is a Kelpie mix, those 2 are the main ones, but also a masitiff mix and one that says pit but looks like a lab mix of some kind. Won't know till I get there and see them. Never know, might be the day for a new mouth to feed, I mean, a new pup to love hehe. Been doing pretty good, I sweat a lot too, gets annoying. My son does too, we laugh at how much we go through laundry hehe. Well, need to get up to the art room and get some vacuuming and cleaning done, it's coming along. Slowly, but it's coming along. almost done filling your box too, speaking of slowly! HUGS! Oh, and everyone likes Tylers pics, he's such a cutie indeed!

Been hot here, haven't gotten rain in a little while. Not complaining because we had lots last month. Yes, we got the firewood. Jake headed to the beach with Polar and she doesn't like the water too much yet, but she will get used to it. Brian will be back tonight and I am sure the boys will get some fishing in this week. Hope you have a nice day, take care, Dot

Hi
I have been getting on to vote and when I try to leave messages I get lost at sea. We are doing great, enjoying the summer. Jake has been swimming, takes the dog with him. Last night they took the night off fishing and cooked some up for supper. Piled some firewood, we are getting more this weekend, so will have lots for the winter. I will take a few pics of my gardens and flowers and send some your way. Take care, Dot

Hello!
IT'S RAINING! Only to get to 80 today too so that's even better! Doing ok on meds, still feeling better for the most part. Well, my neck hates me but that's a mutual every day thing haha. Elfi is doing great, she's so funny and sweet, lately she's charmed every one she's met. Or run up to...she's such a baby still! Loki is a riot. He wants to be outside but hates rain. So, I let him out then laugh as he does a QUICK lap around the patio, then runs back in with a chirrup of disgust hehe. Lots to babble but will do so by email later. Life has been good and keeps getting better over all. Saw that Tyler is having lots more fun, good for both of you! Still looking for a dog, but again, when it's right it will happen. always does! Need to get busy, have a few chores to do so I can enjoy gaming, reading and rain watching! HUGS!

We had a nice night away. My cousin stayed the night with us and we drank and talked most of the night long. We all enjoyed the pool, sauna and hot tub. Did a little shopping. Today we had a funeral to go to and then me and Bill took the 4wheeler up the hill to get some minnows. The boys went fishing tonight, but it got awfully cloudy and looks like it will rain soon. Will have a quiet night, Jakes friend went home and it is just us. Hope you have a nice weekend, take care, Dot

The vet appointment went ok. But they asked about buddy and that was hard to tell them we lost her. Polar did not like the needle, but she will survive. We got to start getting her trained and teach her some good habits and her biting is getting softer,so she is learning. The boys stayed home from fishing, too cold out and they cooked the fish they got last night, great supper. Hope you have a nice day, take care, Dot

Hello!
Yup, the pup hunt is on but we have so much going on that I'm ok with the search taking time. I have seen several dogs I would take, but we need something young for Elfi as she's very fragile as it is, being skinny and hyper hehe. She's a total sweetie and the perfect pesky baby sister. She gets intimidated by big dogs, and with Goose about to have another birthday, making her truly ancient, a puppy that will get big is the main goal, but be small and young enough to learn to get along with all the others. Unless of course, it's a truly mellow dog that won't intimidate, and since I'm all about dogs that do, makes it tricky hehe. I do LOVE big dogs! There are 2 mastiffs at the humane society right now, and if we had the room, I'd already have them. Sadly, I'm scared of pitbulls though. Have many reasons, including a death of a child of the inlaw of an inlaw some years ago and several attacks, Stanley got torn up by 2 of them tag teaming him, my brothers dog was too, but different time and dogs involved and well, I am just afraid. I have seen and met several I wouldn't mind, but the fear factor is involved. Strange rotties, mastiffs etc, no fear at all though. Go figure! I'm also totally afraid of chihuahuas and mini poodles! No, seriously! My vet is too, we laugh cuz he's a big dog lover and understands! He says those nip him more than any other too hehe. Anyway, life is pretty good. I'm feeling LOTS better now that meds are kicking in! I have a neurosurgeon appt on the 12th for my neck, will either get an MRI or get scheduled for one after they evaluate. My son hopefully will get to go the same day, they hadn't received his info yet but are holding the spot for him in case. I'm eating less, no cravings any more, doing a lot more, and soon will get back into that art room too. Actually plan on being in there later today and tonight after dinner to get some things out of the way and start that again. And I'll be getting that box shipped soon, really! It's out and on the breakfast bar in the way. Guess that's it. Need to get busy in the kitchen so I can play some more video games without guilt. hehe. Love and hugs! and hi to Ronnie Lee!

We are still getting rainy cooler weather. The boys went fishing up the highway and then met up with Bill. So they all showed up home at the same time. Not doing much today, too wet out for and outdoor chores. I guess we are going out of town for the weekend, get some visiting and shopping in. I keep ending up lost in sea, trying to leave you a message, grrrrr. Polar has a vet appointment tomorrow for shots and a check up. Hope you have a nice day, take care, Dot

I'm just going through my overwhelming inbox and I thought I'd stop by and just say hi and let you know that I'm working on Rufus' photos. MJ is starting the painting and I'm just making sure everything is exactly how you want it.

Anyway, I came across the e-mail you sent about the Azawakh breed. It's a cool breed and I'm 99% sure that it's descended from the saluki. There are so many similarities.

How's Tyler doing? Is he getting over his kennel cough? I bet he's a joy to have around.

Leaving a vote for you.

Hello!
Too cute about Tyler and the fish hehe. Yup, them youngsters are sure enthusiastic about EVERYTHING! So, the pup I'd hoped for was adopted before I could convince anyone here to go see her too. I can't just bring home another mouth to feed when others pay my way. Well, I could, but I won't hehe. The perfect pup will come along when it's the perfect time. We have several health things going on right now anyway, what with my newly discovered diabetes, plus needing to see the neuro for my neck, plus my son is 99.9% sure the neurosurgeon is going to have to operate on him, did I tell you his lower spine is twisting and popping discs out! YIKES! Poor kid walks like he's 200 years old most days. So, yea, I'm going to be busy for awhile with myself and my son, plus the care and feeding of everyone else around here. Oh, and I'll be getting that box out to you now that you have a pup again, have some doggy stuff in there so didn't want to send it too soon after Sir Rufus' trip to Rainbow Bridge. Good grief, made me misty just typing that...course, I still cry over Mo too, she was one special dog indeed. Elfi sure is fantastic though and everyone who meets her is crazy about her weirdness and sweetness. Her and Loki have become very good friends and they terrorize the laundry...They've discovered they can knock over freshly stacked piles and fight over them while I'm folding away. Have learned to pretty much always fold straight from the dryer into a basket otherwise I have triple the workload! hehe. Well, hugs, kisses and all that smooshy stuff. Oh, and hello to Ronnie Lee!

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!

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
