I was sitting here this morning doing my usual routine… drink some tea, have a bagel, check my email, Facebook, Google Reader… and I heard it. The tell tale sound of Weston opening the closet door and rummaging through the shred box. By the time I responded, which was actually pretty quickly, with my usual….Continue reading “For The Love of Dogs”
These are photos I used on my blog between 2005 and 2007. I blogged with Blogger for that time… until I switched to WordPress, where I’ve stayed. I was just perusing these and enjoying them. Thought I’d share. Some of these were before I had the Canon Rebel even. We were using point and shootContinue reading “Pictures of Early Us”
On our way home from a family dinner at Mom and Don’s place. Stopped at the pet store on the way home for bully sticks for the pups. They love them. Dinner was so good. Got to see family I haven’t seen in a long long time. Nice! Nothing like being in a room withContinue reading “Stopping For Bullies”
Sunday and a trip to the beach. My honey decided that getting out of the house would be good for this girl, rightly so, and we headed to Astoria this morning. She packed a picnic lunch, loaded up the pups, and off we all went down Hwy 30. It was a great day for aContinue reading “Astoria and Back”
It’s another scorcher out there today, so we are in. Had breakfast, then lunch, took showers, and now we are both surfing the net on our laptops while watching King Arthur. It’s slow. We may have to put in the Netflix movie we still haven’t watched. I got on the treadmill this morning. Karen justContinue reading “Sunday at Home”
We took a little ride today. Errands and such. Had to go get dog food, bully sticks, and deposit a rent check. Very glamorous, but nice. It was nice to ride over with my honey, chat, get a tea, chat some more. Lovely really. Now we’re back home, my honey is working, I’m watching PointContinue reading “Wednesday…”
Last night I discovered something amazing… I dance better bald. It’s true. Granted I was sitting and dancing, but that just makes the head movement all that more important. I’m sure it’s true though, so it can only mean one thing… hair creates resistance. My head moves more freely naked. A positive since we danceContinue reading “Dancing Bald”
Went in for the blood draw today. After that we sat in the waiting room of the oncology department for an hour waiting for an advice nurse. She finally came out to tell me that the sore spot on my hand, the one with the lump in it that is where I had an IVContinue reading “Tuesday… Day 10”
Sunday, day 9. It’s been a similar day to yesterday… decent morning, slightly rocky afternoon… but not bad. My honey went to the store today, cleaned the house, and has been outside washing cars and cleaning and weeding and playing in the shop. She is a busy girl, and amazing. The little girlie is outContinue reading “Day 9”
So here we are, day 8 from the first day of this last chemo round. All in all I’m not feeling too bad. Woke up well, but have felt a tad queasy since lunch. Took the temp and it’s all good, no temperature, and that’s the biggie. Karen ended up having to work today forContinue reading “Saturday And The Livin’ Is… Slightly Queasy”
After A Walk, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Had to post this little number. Karen and I took a walk, with the pups, around the Belmont neighborhood last weekend. It was gorgeous out and gorgeous weather always calls for a walk. The dogs, of course, love it when we go on a walkabout. They were aContinue reading “After A Walk”
The pups enjoy a day of shopping.
Floating Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl I think Weston and Riley’s outside water bowl needs to be emptied and re-filled, don’t you? Though really…. they don’t stay out long enough in the rain to need a drink. They are fair weather pups. No rain shall touch them… if they can help it.
Pups, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The pups love camping. Weston is on his lead here, but he got to be off of it. They both did. They were worn out by the time we got home. Two hikes in one day just about did the little souls in. They made it though, and actually wantedContinue reading “Pups”
Getting a Drink, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We went into Sisters one day for a couple of hours while we were over camping. It was a bit warm. Weston, who never drinks out of “other” bowls, drank. It was a first. This particular shot was taken outside a great gallery in Sisters. We love thisContinue reading “Getting a Drink”
Running Man, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Weston going a pretty good clip toward me. I’m sitting on the bricks of the raised bed where I was looking at the addition straight on before I turned toward the little man.
Out For A Walk, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The dogs love going for walks. So much to smell, so much to see, people to greet (and bark at depending on which dog you are), loads of stuff to pee on. It’s a grand grand thing going for a walk is.
What Hydrants Are Made For, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. This is how Weston always throws out his patella. He stretches too far and pop, it’s out. Luckily he’s pretty good about knowing how to get it back into place. We’ve only had to pop it in a couple of times for him. I can’t doContinue reading “What Hydrants Are Made For”
Hunting Chipmunks, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The mighty chipmunk hunters in action. Sticking their heads in the very hole those pesky chipmunks were sticking their heads out of a second ago.
It’s Here Somewhere… I Know It!, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Weston loves to chase chipmunks when we go camping. He always corners them under someone’s car. It’s cute. His tale, all curled forward like that, and him down on his front paws is called play stance. He was in it a lot at Davis.
What’s Over There?, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. This is Weston at Hondo Dog Park looking through the fence over to where the big dog area is. He might have been fancying himself as a big dog, but he’d never make it over there. He loves big dogs, but when he’s with them he spends mostContinue reading “What’s Over There?”
Peeking, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Weston has been to Hondo a few times. Most of the time he’s sort of been like the little kid who is so shy they stand on the sidelines, waiting to be noticed or picked. We always sort of felt bad for him and tried to encourage him to getContinue reading “Peeking”
I’m ready… we have a plan. We are starting to prepare to be away. I’ve been doing it at work now for two days. Uh, maybe a day and a half if I’m honest, since today I’ve managed to do practically nothing of importance so far. But, I’m preparing. And now this process begins atContinue reading “Weekend A Go Go”
Life Behind Bars, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Here they are… Kev is right, all they need are tin cups to bang against the bars and the picture would be complete. They do love being able to go outside at will however. They just don’t like it when one of us is on “the outside”.
The Gang’s Almost All Here, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We had a terrific time on Sunday with our pals and all the pups. Thanks guys for a really nice time. Not to mention the after hike lunch at the St. Johns McMenamins Pub. Tasty. Nothing says healthy more than following up a physical fitness activityContinue reading “The Gang’s Almost All Here… Almost”
