Saturday Smiles


You just never can trust Standard Poodles, they can show up at any time completely incognito. Who IS that behind those Foster Grants?

Here’s hoping you have a sunny and dry weekend. To those of you who have been deluged with rain of late, you are in our thoughts and paws. 🐾

Live, love, bark! <3

Sunshine Saturday

Sam here. So the “pawrental” units were working in the garden so naturally I had to snoopervise their progress. Luckily that time provided me with ample opportunity to work on my tan.

finalWhatever plans you have for the weekend, don’t ‘furget’ to use plenty of  sunscreen. Here’s wishing you a super Saturday.

Live, love, bark! <3

Silhouette Saturday


Hope your weekend is sunny and mild-a major storm has been forecast for the 303 so we snuck out of town to see my parents. Sam’ll let you know just how much of the white stuff falls once the winds die down.

Fab Friday

Do you remember Kelly LeBrock, who gave us that famous line “Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful” Pantene commercials back in the 1980s? She’d toss a glossy head of hair over her shoulder and with those pouting lips and seductive look made every junior high boy swoon and sent all the girls flocking to the store to buy the shampoo. 



While walking Sam on a fairly windy morning this week, that commercial popped up from my memory bank (can’t remember where I placed the keys but can recall ads from 87 years ago-go figure!!) this photo reminded me of those commercials from so long ago. For a boy, I think he kind of rock’s the ‘come hither’ ears-blowing-back look, don’t you?

Here’s to a Fab Friday and an even more fab weekend!

The moving saga continues…but it’s all pawsitive

It’s Friday…yippee! So looking forward to the weekend, how about you? We’ve been hard at work reorganizing the garage in anticipation of Wayne’s California belongings arriving on Monday. Building shelves, organizing more efficiently and condensing my stuff so that we can fit our belongings together has been an ongoing endeavor since we came back. Combining households is no easy venture…there’s only so much room you have to deal with and (sadly) we all tend to fill our space. When you add more possessions in the same amount of square footage, something has got to go. So I’ve been diligently purging clothes, bedding, extra kitchen utensils and other stuff like crazy. Why oh why did I hang on them in the first place is beyond explanation. 🙂

As you can see, Sam continues to ‘snoopervise‘ our hard work rotten lazy dog. Maybe he’s resting up in anticipation of next week’s hospital visits.


Wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend full of pawsitive accomplishments and fun.

Over the River and Through the Woods…

to Grandmother’s house we go…🎶
I needed to see,
if Grandma can play…
with my ow-wn no-ose 🎶

IMG_1400Sam here…mom and dad took me down to Grandma’s house (also known as bunny nirvana) a couple of days ago to see how well my Grandma was doing since being released from home hospice care this week. Boy, am I impressed…she’s doing remarkably well! She still gets tired easily, but her color is back and her voice is strong. We are all super thrilled and continue to count our lucky stars at her progress. Way to go Grandma, I <3 you!!

My mom thought she’d be a real prankster clever and confuse me on our morning walk in bunny heaven. She decided to run before I got a chance to take that opportunity. I was too busy sniffing out all the bunny hideouts at Grandma’s house. Boy, there must be a jillion of them running around out there because I couldn’t decided which scent track to take so I kept going back and forth between several of them. All of a sudden, mom started to jog up the hill. Wait…what are you doing, mom?! I’m the one who’s supposed to do all the running and loping, not you!! She took off dragging me behind her up the hill and I (a) either couldn’t get over being flabbergasted that she was running or (b) could never could catch up with her (boy, those bunnies better watch out, if mom starts chasing them, they’d be in big trouble). She said it felt good in the crisp morning air and was even surprised at how far she managed to go before gasping for her life slowing down. As a practice session with interval training, she was happy…once she caught her breathe when she came back into the house. Time will tell if she keeps it up. I’m guessing I’ll be better at it then she will. BOL

So what are you doing for the weekend? Any fun plans or just staying warm? Here’s hoping you have a pawsome one, whatever you do! 🐾

Wishing you a super pawsome weekend.
