Mom's doggy life

Mom was going through some old photos this week and couldn't help but notice that there were dogs in most of them. Mostly photos of her hugging dogs.
Look Lorenza and Frankie! Moms first dog 'Reiner' was a Dachshund.
The 60's
There were lots of Dachshunds, in the early years, cuz Grandma had 2 as well.
Fritzy and Heiny
In the 70's, Mom's dog was 'Shamrock' the Irish Setter.
Shamrock broke a toe, when she fell off the deck, chasing our cat 'Patches'.
Shamrock's cast didn't stop us from playing down by the lake!
Then came the 80's....Mom's first Airedale!
SPANKY
Mom, What's up with your hair?
Are you trying to be an Airedale?
That little guy, is Mom's little brother....who is now 29 and an insurance agent!
The 90's
Mom and Dad's first Airedale
Leopold
Mom, Sophie (visiting dale, who now lives in New Orleans, Hi Sophie!)

My Birthday!
Can you guess which one I am??
I'm the shy pup with the yellow ribbon!
I discovered my love of gardening right away...the rest is history!
Happy Digging!

  7. Great pics. We loved seeing the many pups of your mom's life. We had a Shamrock too but she was a little white cockapoo. You looked so cute there with little pup siblings. Ciara is very happy to see that it is important to get that gardening work started at a young age.
