Catch Up and the Girls’ First Zoo Trip. 2

Catch Up and the Girls’ First Zoo Trip.

I’ve been neglecting you lately on the picture front. I’m doing 365, but I’ve found I don’t have time to take creative pictures everyday. Instead my goal is to just take a picture of what we did that day, so I’ll have one year of memories. For example, 26/365:  We drugged Rintoo with two valiums in order to shave him.  He has to be shaved because he’s so large (21 pounds) and not able to groom his long cottony fur or his...

The Great Dane found his owner!  He belongs to a college student who went on vacation.  A friend was supposed to be caring for him.  Bet she’s pretty pissed at that friend.  He also apparently had on a collar and tags, but they are no where to be found.  She didn’t even realize he was missing–my neighbor had him outside and another neighbor recognized him.  They called the owner who was on her way home from her vacation. Anyway, I’m so...

Whoa, Big Buddy.

My new lens came today!  So exciting.  I can’t wait until I can test it on the girls outside.  It’s so large, but fast and sharp.  Love it. I tested it on the chickens outside in the sun. Isn’t my rooster hilarious looking?  He crows like a dying sheep. It works pretty good in low light indoors as well. HAHAHAHHA. New lens aside, the real story of the day is today’s 365 photo. Buddy. 3/365…a quick snapshot. (Note: Ada and Spongebob are making the...

He loves her more than me. 3

He loves her more than me.

My dog Hank is something special. He’s an American Foxhound.  We got him from the shelter when Rosie was a baby.  He was biding his time, just about out of days until…you know.  The shelter warned us not to adopt him because he was a handful. Apparently he escaped one day and ran out of the automatic doors, down a busy four lane road, and no one could catch him.  They gave up.  A few hours later he came right back...

Christmas Season! 0

Christmas Season!

We set up our Christmas tree yesterday.  Rosie was bouncing off the walls with excitement.  Ada was in awe. So far Ada hasn’t tried to harm the tree.  We put the non-breakable ornaments towards the bottom just in case.  My real concern is that she’ll try to use a tree branch to pull to a stand and the whole tree will fall over.  Let’s hope that doesn’t happen!  It’s a small tree, so I’m sure the only real damage would be...
