Saturday Critters and Simple Thrills

Dogs that teach.

Play outside, get plenty of fresh air and let the snow melt off your nose!

The lessons they teach us are far more important than any tricks we could ever teach them.

Things that matter most.
Actually, are free.

Excuse me. Where is my piggy?

Welcome to


"I'm not sure which is worse
intense feeling
or the absence of it."
Margaret Atwood


Intense playing is the best ever.

Got it! Now let's take this piggy outside!


Throw another snowball, please, please, bark, bark!

Can you believe my little cuddle muffin Dash is really in need of grooming?

He's like another pup in his woolly, fluffy periods. Yep, once the frozen temperatures roll out of here, it's clipping time for Dashie!

Master Dash
the protector!

The many styles of Dashiell!

Where's my Harley?


Yesterday I had lunch with my oldest son and of course their fluffy Emmie is always ready to play.

Rub my belly again, please?

Still licking the snow off her face after a quick potty break outside!

Did I mention Emmie rarely sits still. She's always on the move.

Be Active

Last, my kitty, affectionately named "Kitty" after Miss Kitty of course!

Maintain Good Eating Habits

So the pups don't get into her food she eats on the counter!

Sorry dogs, my food is off limits for you!

They always make me smile. Except when my cat sneezes on my face in the middle of the night.
