On The Road

Me and my girls are on vacation this week and headed to the Ozark Mountains to see my father. Hopefully the weather will cooperate with us. The area has already had a bit of snow for Christmas but this week is to be a bit warmer. We shall see. In the meantime, we hope all of you stay warm and dry this holiday week. Happy New Year!

My Girls Waiting For Santa

What was that Lucy? Did you hear Santa on the roof? "I need new tennis balls!"
Sable's getting bored it seems. She's tired of hearing about Santa and Christmas.

Wish List

I want to get my girls new collars for Christmas but I have seen ZILCH in the pet stores. I can't use the snap kind. They sometimes get hold of each other by the collar and have unsnapped them in the past. So I need the buckle and pin type. I like the brown turquoise for Lucy and the red collar for Sable. Sometimes I'm hesitant ordering on line when it has a utilitarian aspect because I've had such bad luck when something has to work in some way. We'll see.

It's Her Way

My Sable lets me know when it is time to go home from the park. Everytime I walk up to get the ball. She starts working her way back to the parking lot until I've eventually followed her to the gate. Sneaky!

Finding Comfort With Baby Jesus

A stray dog finds a resting spot in a nativity scene.

Table Inspection

Everyone needs help during the holidays.

Doggie Door In Moscow

That would be a little drafty.

Christmas Spirit?

My girls actually mixing with others? What's Up with that? Must be the Christmas spirit?

With a blast of cold air, it seemed appropriate to have a fire in our small pit. The girls enjoy the cold but weren't too impressed with my fire making skills.

Lazy Weekend

Why did you disturb me?

Are These Leftovers?

A Cold Morning At Millie Bush

I woke up early yesterday morning so I thought I'd take the girls to Millie Bush Bark Park. They like it better than the park closer to home. One reason is the gradual slope into the water where as the park here in Sugar Land just drops off a foot or so. I usually take them to this park early for two reasons:to beat the traffic and the heat. Since we are in a cold snap the avoidance of traffic was the motivation.
We were the first to arrive just after 7:00 am and I thought they might hesitate to get in the water. But I was wrong. They headed directly for the water. I noticed when others started to arrive they weren't getting in the water?

It looked as if icicles were forming on Lucy when she emerged from the water.

I like the way my girls play together at the park since they rarely do at home. Sable pushes Lucy around and around in circles to get the ball out of her mouth.

What kind of children have I raised? They are content at just watching the others from across the pond. I don't go to the far side of the water to avoid the crowds but for my best camera angle if the sun should show it self. Maybe I'm giving them the wrong message?

Several had arrived by 8:00 am but some only took one loop around the trail and left. It was just too cold for them. One thing is always certain. If it's cold in southeast Texas there's a north wind kicking up. Otherwise, the warmth from the Gulf would ease back inland.
Hope you had a good weekend!

A Blustery Day At Pawm Springs

I was so glad that the clouds and humidity were finally blowing out this week I had to take my Dad, his dog Joe, and my girls, to the dog park.
It was a bit cool with 40 mph wind gusts, especially for my 97 year old Father. I couldn't find him a spot to avoid the wind chill. I eventually had to walk him back to the truck while Joe and the girls enjoyed the fresh air.

Joe found dogs that would run him which he loves. My girls aren't chasing no darn dog. I've raised them right. ;)

Lucy and Sable didn't mind the cold wind and didn't hesitate to get in the water.

We saw some new pals at the park. I don't know their breed but Lucy And Sable seemed to be amused by them. Now my girls will want long hair.
