I spy....

...with my Airedale eye,
A Christmas Fire Truck!
In the town of Boring, Oregon!
(not so boring, I'd say)
I wonder if Santa can fit this down my chimney???

Going 'Native' with Wyatt

If you live in the Pacific Northwest,
and you want your landscape to look like this, require minimal irrigation and attract wildlife....
Then you probably have shopped at a place like 'Bosky Dell Natives'.

Nestled between the hills of West Linn and the Tualatin River, this native plant nursery has it all!
We find ourselves here today, to select plants for a client, who is striving to make her urban Portland landscape a sanctuary for birds.
She has received the Audubon Society's gold standard, in the Backyard Habitat Certification Program.
Even in the winter, this nursery is full of whimsy and wildlife.

We successfully found and purchased an Oregon Native Azalea, Iris Tenax and some Evergreen Huckleberries.

4 Paws Up for 'Going Native'!

Happy Birthday to George the Lad!!

Stanzie picked out a new car for you, George!

(We celebrate today with Flat George, since Fuzzy George is across the pond!)
She thought that the the two of you would look really swell riding around in this.
As soon as she collects a few more bones in her coin purse and can figure out how to ship it.....

Happy Birthday GEORGE!!
Stop by George the Lad's place and wish him a Happy Birthday today!

Did you know that it is also Eva's birthday and Sage's birthday too. We will come pick up you girls and you can go for a ride in the red car!

Wyatt and Stanzie

(No, this is not our car. One of our clients was kind enough to let mom take a picture of it with Flat George and Flat Stanzie....he is probably wondering about mom's mental state right now...LOL)

oh yeah, Stanzie wants to send George a boat too!

Helping my Dad

Today, I'm helping my dad.
We have been sent to pick up those plastic clippy things, to hang up the outdoor Christmas lights.
Dad, do we need any of these?

How about some of these?

I might need one of those giant stockings for all my presents.....

Happy Thanksgiving!

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump,

May your potatoes and gravy

Have never a lump.

May your yams be delicious

And your pies take the prize,

And may your Thanksgiving dinner

Stay off your thighs!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!!!!

Pass the taters please!

This is what I love about the Photo Scavenger Hunt. While on my way to find the picture I had in mind, I stumble onto something else entirely.

A section of the Lincoln Memorial Cemetery on Mt. Scott.

A Silhoutte
A new trick I just learned in photoshop! Guess who?

Something I have made

A Lucky Charm
Japanese prosperity rake

Comfort Food
Jambalaya! Give us a little spice and rice. It's all good now :D 

A Poppy

A Staircase
The stairs to my pond.


Something that lights up.

A Self Portrait
My day job. Pretty glamorous, eh?
(I set my camera on my client's air conditioner, with a 10 second delay.)

I can't wait to see what we will be hunting for in December!

Facebook Follies and A Dog Wash for a Cause

The other day, I pawed open my facebook page. There, posted on my page was a lady in underwear, stepping into a shower and asking me if I was bored!

Hel-LO, I'm a dog.
4 paws, fur and tail.........D-O-G

If you want to send me pictures of pretty girls all wet and soapy,
this is what I want to see!
Stanzie doesn't count....

but my friend Sophie here....oooo la la!

Okay, now that we are done laughing, I guess we will start screening our facebook friend requests better!

And speaking of wet dogs.....
(how's that for a segue)
We learned over at The White Dog Diaries, that November is 'National Canine Cancer Awareness Month'.  Did you know that 1 in 4 dogs will die of canine cancer?
Please visit the National Canine Cancer Foundation. For a $10 donation, you can receive some John Paul Pet shampoo and enter your dog wash pictures for even more prizes!

Did somebody say bath?
