Toby on Strike...Again!

I'm not moving. Maybe I want to go back the other way?

No, I guess I don't want to go that way either.

You go on, I'll just stand here.

Okay, okay. Stop pestering me Lady Flame! I'll go!

She can make me walk, but she can't make me like it...

Happy Holidays to All

Click on any photo set for a larger view.
We wish everyone a happy holiday season. We celebrated a bit early by having our buddies, Veronica, Blue and Bettina over for some gift exchange and lunch last weekend. We always have so much fun together, and just don't see each other often enough.
Our get together is always about the pups. They get so excited to eat their treaties, and Veronica spoils them rotten!
Here is Lady Flame in two of her new holiday/Star Wars hats! Ummm...she looks quite thrilled, don't you think?
Toby was dashing as always, and his new plaid antlers gave him such a GQ look! And, he can sit on command when there is a treat involved.
Old gentleman, Blue, was in good form and he loved the biscuits, attention, and naps!
Lastly, but not leastly, was "Bettina the Queena"! She thrived on attention, attention, attention! She finally gave me the stink eye after too much "in-your-face" photography;-)

Thanks for making Christmas so exciting for our pups, Veronica!

Pups in the fog

Today, we took a walk along the Papermill Trail after school. It was a very foggy day and we could barely see the Androscoggin River through the fog. In fact, the river is directly behind the pups!

Happy 9th Birthday to Sugaree

Happy 9th Birthday, Sugaree! May you continue to enjoy kicking up your heels, mucking around in mud puddles, hanging with your half-sibs, and being a snuggly buggly girl for many years to come! We love you!

I tawt I heard a puddy tat!

A faint mewing sound certainly caught Toby's attention, but no cat was seen.

Walkin' in the Woods

Lady Flame & Toby take advantage of the warm weather. No jackets!

Lit by the fire's glow...

If only we could learn to relax like this!

Happy 12th Birthday, Blue!

Royal Blue Jay is 12 years old today. We wish him the best. He is one of our buddies, and we all love him dearly.

Four buddies: Bettina, Blue, Lady Flame and Toby...looking for squirrels?

All dogs should be as loved and well cared for as Blue...(and Bettina.) We count ourselves lucky to have such greyt friends!

Happy Birthday, Big Guy!

You Can't Make Me!

I'm not going back!
No problem, I'll just wait here.
On the rare occasions when Toby is willing to go for a walk, he often doesn't want to turn around and return home. I have no idea what goes on in his head.

Come closer...

Too close!
