Monday Memories

When there were three.  Those were the good ole days.  How did I manage three big pooches and have my elderly Father live with me for 2.5 of those years? Now,I wondered what I do with my time?  I seem to get nothing accomplished.

It's A Good Thing

As much as I have missed my babies with each passing, I am glad that they weren't with me during tropical storm Harvey.  They would have all had a terrible case of cabin fever as I did.  So many pets up for adoption now in the Houston area.  I am trying to resist the temptation for now.  But I know there has to be a couple of precious pooches in my future.

It's Been 4 Years

Four years ago today, I lost my sweet Lucy.  I called her sweet because, like most Goldens, she always had a smile and Lucy, well, because of the red hair.  I still miss her and all that hair all over the house.  She was the most affectionate of the three.

Not Without My Pet!

 Victims of flooding from Harvey take their pets when rescued.



Most shelters allow owners to bring their pets with them.

Monday Memories

My girls loved the water but Lucy, the Golden, was the first to take to the water.  It was a few months after going to the dog park that I looked out and saw that Sable was finally swimming with Lucy.

Sunday With Spike!


I'm sad to see Spike leave today but my brother is back from vacation.  Spike has been a good boy.

A Perfect Guest

Spike has been a pleasure to take care of this week.  Just as it was with Lily, I will miss our time together.  He is much like me in that he just likes to sleep and eat and HATES our Texas heat.

Monday Memories

All my babies loved to ride.  It must be a sense of adventure for them plus it takes the wear and tear off their legs.  I miss taking them to the park and for a Sunday ride.  I enjoyed taking them with me on errands on the few cool days we would have during the winter months.

Pet Sitting Again!

I have Spike, Sable's 14 year old brother, with me for a week or so while my brother and family vacation.  Spike is like me in that he moves slowly, gets up and down with effort, and likes to eat.  A big plus is that, like Sable, he is not much of a barker.

Sunday Drive With Lily

Lily has been the perfect house guest the last two weeks.  Today we went to the park and took a nice long drive afterwards.  She goes back to her mom and dad tomorrow.  Just before I get too attached.

Week Two With Lily

 I've enjoyed taking Lily for her walks but I am partial for the predawn ventures.
 Lily enjoyed the water at the Oyster Creek Park and
a bit of rock climbing as well.

She's The Lily Of My Valley

I'm dog sitting for a friend of mine while he vacations.  When I woke up from a typical nap in my chair I panicked when she was not near by. I started looking for her and found her in my bed making herself at home.  It doesn't take long does it?  So far she has been a very good girl.

So Cruel

I saw the cruelest thing yesterday when house hunting.  I loved the house till I went to the back patio and saw a dog was in a cage.  This is Texas in July.  It is miserable to be outside this time of year in the best conditions.  If the dog was out, it would have been in the pool.  I'm sure. The yard was fully fenced so why have a dog caged?  I was nauseated after seeing this home and came home..

Take A Road Trip This Weekend!

My babies all loved to ride.  My parents had a Lab and then a Dalmatian after I left home and both were terrified to get in a vehicle. Enjoy your weekend!

Happy Fourth of July!

Enjoy the fireworks tonight!
My babies were never phased by fire works. I don't live that far from the park where the city puts on the show either. Go figure.
