If I only had a brain.

Mom I got myself in a pickle again…

and I just can’t figure out how to get myself out of here.
What do you want my brain is the size of a walnut.
Ok so she’s not the sharpest tool in the shed… but this is the kind of silliness that makes me love her even more. She does the quirkiest things...hehehehhe

These two short video clips are prime examples of my walnut sized brain princess.

I like fuzzy butts and I can not lie.

My dachshunds like most Doxies love to snuggle under the blankets.
But for some reason they always want their booty hanging out.
I just think it’s so cute. 
King Jazzy seems to like it too.
Yep those be my… BLEEEEEP (female dogs) ….JASPER! This is a family blog don’t be so fresh!

Seasons change.

I was so excited when I looked out my window and spotted this today…

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot 

I really do love Autumn!
It was even chilly enough this morning for our favorite sweatshirt.
I'm sure you can guess why <"( );::::::;~ 
However we will miss some of our summer friends.
The hummingbird is a wonder of migration. Every winter it makes an amazing journey. Some have been known to make a journey of 2500 miles or more, from Alaska to Central America. Because of it, the hummingbird is a symbol for accomplishing that which seems impossible. It will teach you how to find the miracle of joyful living from your own life circumstances.
- Ted Andrews
Like the hummingbird sipping nectar from every flower, I fly joyfully through my days, seeing beauty in everything.

I know sometimes we can look at autumn and see death… but I like to look at it as the very beginning stages of life. Because without the shedding of the old... new life can’t come forth.
This happened to be the song I was listening to as I was typing this blog…yes today I chose to see life

Is there a dogtor in the house?

One quality I find dogs have, which endears them to my heart even more, is this uncanny ability to know when you are having a down day.

They are also so good at listening to all our woes.

 Yeah there truly is nothing like the comfort of a dog.

One reason a dog can be such a comfort when you're feeling blue is that he doesn't try to find out why.  ~Author Unknown

My greatest fans request.

Have to take care of those pearly whites

Yes Shannie like Grammy said you’re the bravest little girl I know…and I blogged this per your request to show all the other little girls in the world that you have to be brave when you visit the dentist.
(She thinks everyone in the world reads Grammy’s blog…lol)

A new passion

Shannie rode a horse for the first time.

Coming out of the feed store we ran into these nice folks offering horse rides.
Whoa that horse is much bigger looking when you get up close!
Up you go.
We will break her of this before she starts driving a car!
After her ride she came to me and said...
"Grammy I feel like I'm supposed to do something in my life with horses". Hum...well horse riding lessons here we come :)

Meanwhile all happy and content at the bottom of my shopping cart was little Kiki chewing away on a pigs ear. Yes we might have a new passion... but we will never lose our passion for our pups :)

Back to our wonderful life.

Well it didn’t take Gwenie long to get right back into the swing of things since we returned home from vacation.
I know your trying to get to that sandwich you little stinker bug.

Have a blessed day everyone!

The cure for anything is salt water.

The beach was total therapy for my soul. God so orchestrated every beautiful detail of our delightful vacation. The house we were blessed to stay at for “free”  was so me.  Here's a few of the things that made me feel right at home…


Yes it sure was an answer to pray vacation  :)
And I have to say thank you again to my sweet husband.

Meanwhile back at the home front I believe some puppies were taking advantage of Daddy’s kindness...
Jebbo Daddy is not your lawn chair!
We wanted to get Daddy this souvenir for being such a trooper but we couldn’t fit it in the car….would have made such a great lawn ornament...LOL

All your waves and your billows have swept over me....Ps 42:7

We are back from our vacation at

And it was more fun then we dreamed it would be

Even when the waves won

I just
this picture of the kids!

No matter how far away from home we are there is always a dog close to our heart.
Bye bye Mr. beach…we will meet again.
