This is the first morning in over 13 years I’ve gotten up and haven’t then heard the sound of little paws coming out to find me. Weston was my shadow. My boy. He wanted to be where I was, most all the time. Following me downstairs when I went to fold the clothes from theContinue reading “The Life And Times of a Sword Swallower”
“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”― Josh Billings Dogs make things better, as do cats I suppose, if I had a cat in my life I’m sure I would think so. I don’t. I have dogs. There’s so much joy there, in their eyes and the wagContinue reading “Words to Live By (Part 4)”
Today is our little mister’s 8th birthday. Currently he’s curled up in the chair in the corner of our living room sleeping. He’s as cute as he’s ever been. I love him so. Our boy has brought so much joy, love, happiness, and adventure into our lives. He is very affectionate, mischievous, hellaciously smart, loving,Continue reading “Weston”
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.
7:24 AM I wake up, suddenly. I feel like someone is staring at me. I turn over slowly and there he is, a small furry little fella with big brown eyes sitting over me looking down. His eyes say everything he can’t speak. I’m half awake and tell him no. Gently at first… no buddy,Continue reading “7:24 AM”
Today was a long day on the road. By choice we went an extra bit today so we could have a short day tomorrow. More time in Santa Fe when we get there. Because today was so long we didn’t do much stopping. Gas, food, rest stops, and just two extra little stops. One atContinue reading “Oregon Odyssey – Day Two”
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”

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.
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.
