Best Biscuits Ever!

My Mom made these biscuits recently. Don't they look yummy?
She put in all the ingredients correctly,
but they never rose!
She thinks the baking soda must have been old??
I say,
She just plain CAN'T BAKE worth a darn!

My Mom Is A Bag Lady

My Mom is the original "Bag Lady"!

This bag is crocheted out of "Dollar Store" trash bags, cut into strips, and made into "plarn"

This bag was made out of fused plastic bags, that shipped more bags of peppercini in at the Olive Garden. The she put it together with Duct Tape! 

Just a different style Duct Take here.

My Mom is really just an "OLD BAG"

Today is my 1st GOTCHA Day!
Above, I am kissing my Dad, for the very first time! Mom said we chose each other, cause of our hair color is the same.

We just got done saying good-bye to one of my brothers, who also got adopted.

Here, I am saying bye to some of my other housemates, and hoping they get adopted soon too.

Don't I look cute in the Dodo chair? It's Dad's chair.
And, here I am, all grown up. I am 15 months old now!  I know how to really protect my folks from, other doggies, people, and golf carts going by our house! I do: sit, lay down, shake paws, and speak all by hand signals now, and am learning, roll over. I LOVE balls, chewy sticks, and unstuffing my stuffies. Mom and Dad are soooooo glad they chose me, and so am I!

I'm just laying here, on the bed, just thinking about what to do this weekend. We were suppose to go to the dog park across the highway, but hear it is not open yet.

Anybody got some ideas for me, so I can have a fun time?

No, Not Marbles

Don't these look just like marbles?
Well, they are not. They actually started out as tiny little beads. The Mom added water to them and they grew about a hundred times over!  I have been told, you put flowers in there, and the water balls will keep them nourished. Cool huh?

Mom Did Some Sewing Again

This is a new fleece jacket for me to wear, when ever I get to live in New Hampshire. Mom just made it!
She made her own pattern, following this old one of Billy's. Not a good color for me huh?
This is the underside view.
So of course, I had to model it for y'all. Purple and pink, I really like it!

One Year Later, A Short Memoir

What ever was I doing to you Billy? Should I have offered you a rum and coke perhaps?

I remember I took this in a completely dark bedroom.

One of the very last photos I ever took of Billy

He looks as if he is in awe of something here. His Christmas toy perhaps?

Billy was always looking at me as if he was trying to figure me out! LOL, Nobody, not man nor beast has done that yet Billy!

It has been exactly one year, since our Billy went over the Rainbow Bridge.  I still think of you so much Billy. Sometimes, I even say your name, when I call out to Miss Mindy. After 13 1/2 years with you, it is hard to change some of my habits. I often gaze at the painting of you, or the photo in the living room, and wonder what you are up to. I suppose you are just running around where you are,  basking in the sun, sleeping in the rain, cuddling in a blanket during a snowstorm. Just waiting............... till you see me again.
I love you Billy, and I miss you very much!
Love, hugs, and special puppy dog kisses,

Holy moly.......what woke me up? (that's Dad's fat belly! He does have shorts on BOL!)

Hey Mom, the curtains are going all crazy like!

The way they are flying all around me, kinda scares me a bit. Good thing Dad is petting me, so I calm down a little.

OK, I'm not scared anymore. Think I will just check outside and see what the wind is doing out there.
It's all good everybody. The wind won't blow me away!

Dogs In Cars

I really love riding in my car seat, in our car! I am fastened in, all nice and safe, just like Mom and Dad are. I wonder where we are going. Hmmmm.......this road looks quite familiar! Oh yeah! Pet Smart! There are about a gazillion smells outside and in the store! I tend to go a little crazy with all the new smells. Hope I get some special treats and new toys!

Birth Of A Butterfly

This is how we first saw this new butterfly. Looks like it had just come out.

She seems to be starting to open her wings. A few minutes later, she flew away. Bye butterfly!

Mom's Bites

One day a few weeks ago, Mom woke up to these bites on her leg! YUCK! She never did find out what bit her, but she does believe it was a spider! It took quite awhile to go away, in fact, she still has some little marks left. I sure hope nothing ever bites me like that! This just gave her one more reason to dislike Florida!
