How Troy celebrates his Barkday

Troy turned 6 today. He got to spend an overnight yesterday at the vet's as his present. He had a very badly lacerated paw. We have no idea how it happened, never saw a speck of blood. And he never limped! What a stoic boy he is.

He shared peanut butter covered toast with Dad as a present.

It was very yummy! And how nice for the clinic to match the vet wrap to his collar.

Sporting his outdoor look. Who knew that poop bags could be dual purpose? Of course this had to happen the only week all month when it is WET outside.

Happy 6th Barkday Troy! I hope next year is much less adventurous.

Puppy & Star Updates

The pups went into the vet for their 6 week check up! You can see how stressed they were by the ordeal (just joking). Everyone is in optimum health, they were just tired from the 45 minute drive there. Boys have all their "parts". Life is good.

I am going to say it again... I - L O V E - slow maturing dogs! Star is looking better and better each time out!

Happy 10th Birthday Tristan!

Even though he has not lived with us for a year now, this dog has a very special place in my heart, and in the hearts of his new family.

Wasn't he just an adorable, elf-looking puppy?

Happy Birthday to my brown boy! I know he is being doted on like a king today.

A busy, busy weekend...

Leonard & our nephew, Mike, were very, very busy tearing down our unused kennel runs and ended up making two dog yards. You guys ROCK!!

While Leonard was working on the finishing touches today, Luther was the baby sitter.

The pups also got to meet their extended family and had fun playing!

Zsa Zsa loves the babies!
The yard borders the woods.

Daughter Emma & Mum Sabrina, enjoying the grass. Life is good!

Lutherette is now...


I was calling her "The Ette", just to shorten Lutherette, when Leonard said it sounded too close to Cousin Itt. He came up with Etta. I think it is very pretty.

They are so cute when they are sleeping...

Lutherette reminds me of a panda cub! She is so precious.

And we can't forget fan favorite, Big Ben, snuggling with his toy.

Star was joined by her new handler, Joy Quallenberg, for the first time today at Newton KC. There they were WB/BOS. I think this is the start of a great team!
