Note the nasty look or is he pouting!! (priceless to a mom) Clicking the pictures will enlarge them by the way.
Another try and I think he realizes that timing is everything!
Welcome!! This is a journal about my dogs and what we do.
All my dogs have their own websites that you can see by clicking their photo in the sidebar. Jake's site is the most active right now with new posts.
This site is a work in progress and has become a source of information. When asked a question I would write a post to answer
it which led to a post to summarize the questions. Check the sidebar for this type of information.
Enjoy the visit and feel free to email me at
So I thought to myself… self… why not put a permanent bench of sorts there for them to sit on. So during the summer I hauled a door that was in the shed to the area, covered it with carpet and yes.. they did hang out on it and so did I. Well, the door was one of those cheap hollow ones and before long it deteriorated and was no longer usable. Off to ReStore to get a used door… success.. $30 metal outside door… perfect..
So after the photo shoot it was “run around the yard” time for Brita and Jake.
My favorite is the last one where it looks like they are dancing!
So Why would I find corn a foot under ground when digging a hole? Jake is interested also but may be more interested in Brita!
I then got carried away looking at the trails and up at the trees!
I’m so lucky to have this little patch of woods for me and the dogs…
Well, corn is not what this post is about. I made the decision to lay to rest Ari, Teddy, Olivia and Kobie on the ridge where Ari and Teddy already are. They are a generation. Josephine was first – 8 years their senior. Brita and Jake are the next generation. Each year one of the 4 has left me and each fall I prepared buy digging a resting place, knowing it was coming and knowing it would be impossible if the ground were frozen. So I’ve always had one extra spot ready and now the last two places are prepared HOPING that the girls won’t leave anytime soon. Olivia is 11 1/2 years old and Kobie 9 years old. The reality is it could happen any time but the good news is that there isn’t the certainty as there was the last 2 years with Ari and Teddy. Both of them I expected to lose in the summer but they each hung around longer which was very good. It, however, meant that the ground would be frozen and that’s why I needed to prepare… hard as it is, it’s what I want for these dog/friends of mine. And, true to what happened in the past… I waited until the day before snow was predicted to finish it up.
Please read this answer to a question in a newspaper. The question is “Where Shall I Bury My Dog?”
As a side note, Jake was less of a help on this digging adventure since he wanted to dig the dirt I removed and put it back! He did help with removing the 30 plus rocks that I encountered and when we found another ear of corn, he took off with it to play!
