2015 - New Year, Same Pack


- https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jakeys-Journey/1434918143408396?fref=photo
I saw this pic on Facebook, posted by Jakey's Journey, a page about an adopted Greyhound who was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on Dec. 30, 2013








Which of course got me thinking about my own "pack" and how long it's been since we had an update here, as well as a check in with all of our online friends. Even when we try to read other blogs, we don't always comment, so it often appears I think, like we've dropped off the face of the earth. We have not.




In fact, Gracie continues to keep an eye on the neighbors and even as I write this is in her favorite spot, on back of the couch looking out the window. She did pause for a moment to glance over at the computer and say hi to everyone.





Lil meanwhile, found the sunbeam that  made it past Gracie and into the living room.




As usually happens around here though, the sun didn't even last long enough for me to finish a blog post; Lil decided to check out the backyard - in case anyone had dropped any food there in the last five minutes.









And since no food was present, and that is always disappointing, I decided to give everyone a biscuit.

 Notice how much more alert Lil looks when food is involved.











Of course, when it comes to biscuits, Jenny is willing to put in an appearance.
















And Chi Chi decided to see what all the girls were stirring over.

















Unlike some bloggers and photographers, we do not have good luck getting everyone sitting in the same picture. Lil finds it impossible to sit any distance away from me when I have food in my hand, and Gracie belly crawls into all photos.

So a photo that is supposed to be of Jenny and Lil becomes...


And then we have Gracie's experiment with just how close to the camera lens she can get....


 In other words, not a lot has really changed around here.

We hope that everyone else and their couch-wolves are heading into a 2015 filled with positive possibilities and potential. We continue to hold our own and while our presence may be sporadic, we remain your faithful friends.

  2. Hi! Your dogs are beautiful! I'm curious -- what breed/mix is Gracie? I was also wondering where your "follow" button is ... I'm on my iPhone at the moment so maybe it's not visible.

    2. Nice to meet you Sue! And thanks for catching that during some rearranging I'd somehow left off a follow-by-email button. Hopefully you can see the follow under Gracie's book on the right side now.

      Gracie is an English Bull Terrier. They're not a breed for everyone but if you can stand the personality, they are pretty entertaining :-)

  6. I love the diversity of your pack! My hubby and I have decided to stick with pugs in the future, they are just a good match for us, but I love your mix

  7. I adore pugs - they're still on my list of maybe someday. My brother's family pug, Maisy, won over everyone's heart and we all would have cloned that girl (she had the cutest habit of going deaf to my brother's booming voice and going about doing what she wanted to regardless of what he said - very entertaining from my point of view. She had him wrapped around her paw.)
