A Dog and Cat Tail

"Come on, Huckleberry.  Let's play!"

"See!  It's fun!"

"OW!! What did you do that for???"

"Can't we just be friends?"


  1. You caught the story pretty good!!! I love it!

  2. Kitties don't always want to be friends. Just some friendly words of advice.

    Tucker and Daisy

  3. Aren't you just a brave little toaster trying to play with a kitty like that. You gotta be careful - those buggers will take your eye out if you're not careful! ~dropping by from the Meet & Greet!~

  4. OWH what an unfriendly kitty. You know, we get a lot of slaps from our kitty sister too. She can be a little unpredictable sometimes. Kitties can never be trusted I tell you...

  5. Oh my word! Love the photos and the story that goes with! : )

    Just Ramblin'

  6. Those last two photo's say it all! I think Huckleberry's just taking advantage of your puppyhood to make sure you don't get any ideas to mess with him when your all grown up. Adorable Photos! Thank's for dropping by.

  7. This is precisely why I call my cat "The Devil" Allred is mean and nasty to me. He blocks the doggy door so Ican't go in or out. He does a ton of other mean things, so Be Warned my little friend........Watch your back...

  8. You got smacked by a kitty. Time to fight back. :)

  9. Oh that's so cute! Sorry you got slapped, though. My kitties do that too.

    I'm just stopping over from the blog hop.

    Nubbin wiggles,

Things to Know Before Owning a Golden Retriever:

Our oldest Golden Retriever will be six on April 1st. We got Scarlet when she was just six weeks old and quickly fell in love with her. Within another six weeks, we had our second Golden, Rhett. (Rhett passed away two years ago.) It has been five (almost six) years since we have had adolescent Golden Retrievers in our home. While I have often joked about the “first terrible two years” of a Golden Retriever’s life, I had truly forgotten just how trying a Golden puppy can be - that is until now. Cosmo will be one year old in a matter of weeks, and Rose Bud is six months old. Now all of the reasons we’d joked for so long over how hard it was to survive their puppy hood have come back to me. We’re learning again - the hard way.

With that in mind, I would like to share some tips on owning a Golden. Retriever.

Here are a few things you need to know:

1. You do not own a Golden Retriever. The more accurate description is that they own YOU.
2. Golden Retrievers will chew. If you do not provide the…


So it's been about 15 months since I blogged here.  Most days instead of in depth thoughts, I prefer to post pictures at .  It doesn't require as much brain activity.  But I chose to share this here because it was entirely too long to fit in a Facebook post.  (I do have have four kids after all.)

This was a lot of fun.  I interviewed each of my four kids separately so each answer was original and not "borrowed".  I gained some insight into my kids and learned a few things I need to work on.  And for some reason they all agree I'm obsessed with my dog.  What's up with that.

Here goes..  (Connor is 8, Isaac 12, Jaden 14, and Dacey is 16.)

MOM 1. What is something mom always says to you? Connor  – “You love me.” Isaac  – “God made you special and He and I love you very much.  Precious monkeys and all that jazz.” Jaden  – “If you keep doing that, you’re face will stick like that.” Dacey  – “Be who you are and say what you mean.  T…

Boon's Sunday Sermon #6 - Little Black Dog

Today we'd like to share a writing with you by one of our favorite authors: Elisabeth Elliot.  This piece is beautifully written and describes her thoughts on a dog's 'mortality'.  We hope it touches your heart as it has ours. 

Little Black Dog by Elisabeth Elliot
It is a late October morning of glorious sunshine in New Hampshire and I sit in an antique rocking chair by the window of an old house which was once a barn. The gray rocks on Mount Lafayette's broad summit are dusted with snow, and the sky is as blue as a sky can be. All that is still green today is the evergreens. Between them are the black line drawings of the thin leafless maples, wild cherries, aspens and birches. The feathery tamaracks are dark gold. Little yellow apples hang on one of the gnarled old trees of the orchard. I keep hoping a deer will come for them.

My friend Miriam and I drove up yesterday from Boston for a few days of quiet at my brother's place. Both of us brought a load of desk …
