Today is our boy, Weston’s, 10th birthday. I can’t even begin to express what he means and has meant to our lives. He is cantankerous, mischievous, smart, fun, quirky, and very loving. He is our little Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde. He can be very affectionate one minute and try to gnash at you theContinue reading “Our Boy is 10”
Today is our buddy’s 9th birthday. I can’t believe the little man is 9 already. He came to us when he was just 6 weeks old. He was very young, very feisty, curious, strong willed, and very loving. Not much about him has changed since then. He’s brought so much joy to us, so muchContinue reading “Weston Turns 9”
Our boy turns seven today. Seven years of love and snuggles and play and joy and laughter and smiles and exasperation and sweetness and tail wagging and pawing and cuddle-time and barks and bullies and deep soulful looks. Happy birthday little man, we love you so.
Coffee is a good thing. Really good. Last night, or more accurately, in the middle of the night, we woke up because one of the smoke detectors downstairs was first chirping, then talking. Anyone who has ever heard that sound knows how loud and annoying that chirping can be. Add in the voice saying, “batteryContinue reading “Smoke Alarms, Missing Dogs, and Other Nighttime Adventures”
Weston is a guy of deep thoughts and feelings. He has soul. I looked up a moment ago and there he was sitting on the chair in the corner looking out the window. He looked like a person, deep in thought, contemplating all of life’s ups and downs. He looked introspective and philosophical. He lookedContinue reading “We Love Them”

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”

Mmmm Tasty, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl.
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”
I Have Stuff On My Face, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Yep… she does.
The Little One, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. A little closer in. She’s really lookin’ at me.
Peek-A-Boo, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Riley can barely see over the bay window. She kept trying though. So darn cute.
Where’s Riley?, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The little girl likes to be up in the addition when Karen is up there. So cute. i took several pictures of her today. I have to post some of them.
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.
Little Miss, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Riley had never been camping before. I think she liked it. Chipmunks to chase, sleeping in a sleeping bag, running around off leash, barking at anyone who walked in her vicinity. She had a blast.
Weston, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Here he is… the handsome boy looking intently at Karen’s slice of pizza hoping for a bite. He ended up with a couple of pieces of sauceless crust. As did the little girl. What can we say… we’re suckers for the looks they give us.
Lovin’ The Street Fair, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Riley was, again, a pretty good girl with the crowds yesterday. She got a bit overwhelmed and had to be carried when we wandered around in the dense thick of it, but she didn’t bark very much and she was pretty brave. She’s taking a break inContinue reading “Lovin’ The Street Fair”
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?”
Little Girly, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. She is so darn cute. And so is her milk mustache. Simply… adorable.
