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”
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”
Dear Sebastian… We had such a fun time with you this last weekend. Your Mommy and Daddy went to Chicago for the weekend so we got to stay with you while they were gone. We had so much fun! We came over in the morning on Saturday and you were already up. Your parents leftContinue reading “Farm Animals Drink From The Well”
Weston thinks he deserves to have all of my attention… He probably does.
I walked out into the backyard this afternoon to throw the ball a little for the boy. He’s been restless today. Sometimes he gets like that. Usually chewing on a bully (which I gave him) or throwing the ball a couple of times in the house (which I did), or letting him sit on myContinue reading “Meet Alfie”
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”
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”
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”
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”
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”
Pulling, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Weston loves his walks, as does the little girlie. He tends, as times, not all the time, but at times, to pull. Especially when he sees something up ahead that might work as a place to pee… again.
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.
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.
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”
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”.
Little Buddy, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Here’s the handsome Weston, or as I seem to refer to him lately, bud… or even more accurately, fuzzy. He gets his hair cut next week. He’s going to be happy about it I think. He’s been a little too hot during all our running around. He’s loved it,Continue reading “Little Buddy”
Weston’s Chair, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Weston loves to hang out in this chair. I took this one yesterday. You can see he’s got quite the comfy spot. He loves it. It’s cozy, plus he can see outside. Pretty awesome.
Relief, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. I know this isn’t exactly probably very politically correct, but I had to post a shot of how Weston spends much of his time while on walks. He’s a boy dog… boy dogs like to mark. There’s not a log, or tree, or rock he passes without having to leaveContinue reading “Relief”
