and decided to share
some older pics.

Thanks for taking the time to

Younger Dakota

Dakota HAD 
a fave toy,
a stuffed monkey!

And it actually lasted for
months, until one day!

I have cleaned up after several
of his play dates with 
his toys.

Dakota has never been 
a toy playing dog.
He will chase a ball but
will not bring it back.
He does not shake 
toys like most do.
He just likes to tear them

The next two pics
are what happens when
you paint around a dog
that has to be close to you.

I had my table set up, a
tv tray next to it 
with my paints on pallet
paper. A corner of the paper
was hanging off and Dakota
walked under it, catching
his tail on it and pulling
it on himself.

Time to Retire

Evening folks.
We are ready to call it
a day and when mom 
walked in the room, this
is the site she saw.

Mom was walking through
the living room and 
tripped over Lily's box only
to find Lily in it, sleeping!

Dakota Pics - Close Up

Poor baby...
when I first got a professional
camera and started shooting
was my model a lot of times,
that did not always make him

But he was a good sport about it.

Here he is chewing on his
fave stuffed monkey.

Look how handsome.
No gray spots either. him looking
at me while I was sitting on 
the floor playing with
the camera. He was looking
off the back of the couch.

This next shot shows the 
gray he has gotten.

Still my best 

Lily and Deer, Lily and Painted Rug

For those of you that do not
follow my regular
blog then you missed
this adorable shot of
Lily checking out the deer
in the backyard. 

A not common site in 
our neighborhood so I guess
just guess at what she was thinking.

Here is a pic of her 
trying out the not yet
finished painted rug on the 
deck....still deciding
what I want to do on it.

And here is an older pic
of  Lily right after I got her.

My beautiful girl.

Hiding and Eating

Today I am sharing a 
pic of Lily Bit right 
after I got her....

She was so tiny, now she
fills that cat tree perch. 

Yesterday while messing around
and trying to get some things
done I stumbled upon
this site.

Lily hiding under
some deck curtains I started
to hang before realizing
I need to go get the ladder!
They got knocked from the 
glider to the deck and 
Lily was taking full

I have come to know that
when the head is covered
she thinks she is out
of site!

Trixie has showed up
for the last four days.

I make sure she has food
even if she don't eat...
like I said before I think 
she is the 
HOOD cat,
meaning she is well
fed by the neighborhood.

She is just so pretty but
in passing water to her
yesterday she almost got me
with that swipe of hers added
in with the hiss!

One day maybe critters will learn
to not swipe at the hand
feeding out!

Bred to Hunt

Rat Terriers are
bred and born to 
hunt rodents.

So having Dakota 
digging for a mole is
not a surprise.

If it Fits

Cat folks understand the 
"if it fits, I sit"!

Pics of Lily when 
she was little trying
out all the different
things where she fit.

She is what keeps me

Dakota and the Cat

I thought I would pull
some older
pics of Dakota to show
you folks.

One day he saw the neighbor cat
out, he ran out to scare
meet it.

Now he actually thought
that this pretty babe
would run from him.

Little did he know that
it was not going anywhere.

There was a sort of stand off
until Dakota AKA THE
realized that the 
cat was not afraid of him.
So he gives up!

What a slap in the face
even though the cat
did not actually slap him!

This was years before

Big Eyes, Big Yawn

Yesterday I go out
to the deck to
check on Lily since
its been so hot. 

Found her under the
chair, laying on 
her back, paws
tucked and snoozing.

When I went to take
the pic eyes opened

I must have really
messed up that nap cause
later after she moved
I saw this.

what a BIG 

Queen of the Back of the Chair

Misty seems to think she is queen of the  back of the new chair.   Well, I have news for her... never mind, I can't get up there anyway....
