Furry Friendly Weekend

This weekend was the perfect time to catch up with our furry friends!
Hellooooooo Murphy!

Stanzie was very happy to see our nephew.

Let's walk and look for squirrels!

Sunday, our pal Samson came over for a play date.

We did a lot of running in the house, racing up and down the stairs and begging for food.
And Barking!
Good Stuff!

We went outside and we stared at the cows. 
When I took Samson down to the pond, he fell in...hee hee.

Good fun, I shall just sit here and watch the front door, until my Airedale friends return for another visit!

Wild Boar and Kale !!

No, that's not what mom made for dinner last night...hee hee.

It's what is in this package of dog treats!

What do we have here?

Canidae Bakery Snacks with 7 deliciously nutritious ingredients your dog is sure to love.
Brown Rice, Steel Cut Oats, Wild Boar, Kale.......

A crunchy texture to keep our teeth clean
An easy snap feature, so we can share.

Are we just going to take pictures of the bag or do we get to eat some already?

Thank Youuuuuuu Canidae!

They are SO Yummy.

The Christmas Kick Off, Black and Tan Friday!

First, I need to swim!

Next, we hauled the 15' tree up to the door. It's still not in the house, baby steps.
Anything is possible with a blue tarp and an Airedale!

Then, we cut greens from the yard and made our wreath.

I'm worried. 
We used the cookie cutters.......does that mean there will be no cookies this year?

The Tree has Landed!


Stanzie gives it the once over.

Yes, it smells very nice.

And it is very tall.

We give it the Stanzie and Wyatt "Stamp of Approval"!

Now, how are we going to get it in the house?

Chicken Soup and Apple Pie!

Dad made his homemade chicken soup today.
Stanzie can't get anything past this chow hound.

The Dessert 
Individual take and bake apple pies. 
Made by the most talented pastry chef and our neighbor, Arnie!
How can a man so talented at woodworking, also make the best pie crust this side of the Rockies?!?

Sorry Wyatt. 
You can lick the plate when we are finished.

We did!

Please turn it back to the Happy Hallmark Channel.

Steaming Pumpkins!

Remember the decorative pumpkins?

We are cooking them up!
Some for the freezer, some in our dog bowls.

We can't wait for them to cool down.

A scoop of pumpkin on our dog dinner is the best!

Hey Little Bird

Yesterday, we looked out our big glass window and witnessed about 20 of these little birds looking in our window!
Some of them sat politely on the deck and had their picture taken.

Some of them sat on the window sills and stared into our house.

Some had yellow mohawks, some had orange mohawks, some had no-hawks.
This fat little guy looked like a baby.

Maybe they were just tired from a long journey and taking a break?
They hung out for about 30 minutes and then they were gone.

Safe travels feathered friends,

Ice Road Truckers

 The folks were heading up to Hood River and forgot to check the road conditions :(
Hey, it's only November!
So sad, our white truck danced across the ice and kissed the concrete median.
Just a small amount of drama, the folks are A-OK.
The truck is just slightly smooshed and the truck did not hit anybody else as it did the ice dance.
But, it would not start again. So, onto the tow truck it went.

As the folks sat safely on the shoulder waiting for the AAA tow truck, they witnessed multiple accidents. Some drivers left in ambulances :(

Us dogs were smart enough to stay home!

Now, we have a tiny car for the next 3 weeks.
Stanzie likes it very much, except she takes up the entire back seat.

I like to ride shotgun!

Only enough room for one human. Not the ideal car for us.

We are still together and that is ALL that matters.

Sending only the Best

Stanzie and I are selecting the very best trees to be shipped to your state!

We sniffed each one to make sure it is fresh and fragrant.

We made sure they are baled correctly and headed to a Christmas Tree Lot near you!

Stanzie picked out all the BIG ones to go to YOUR town, so you will need a 14-25 foot ceiling and a really big tree stand!

Just look for the tree with a little Airedale Fur on it.

Wyatt and Stanzie

I swear, I did not pee on any tree...that's grounds for dismissal!

Un-Caffeinated Wind Storm

The wind huffed and puffed and blew a bunch of stuff down.
Trees down, power plastic swimming pool blew into the next county!
A yard full of sticks.
How wonderful!

The scariest part was no coffee for Mom and Dad.
They boiled water on the gas stove, only to discover nothing but whole bean coffee in the house and an electric grinder.

We can laugh now, 
but it WAS scary!

Winterizing with Wyatt


Shut down and drain all the outside water supplies.
Put away the hoses and put foam covers on the faucets.

Cover all the tender plants with leaves, mulch, bubble wrap, etc.

Get that firewood up close to the door.

Most Important, 
get your blanket and claim your place on the couch!

stay warm,
