The Difference a Few Weeks Makes and a Question from Mom



So mom says I've gotten a little bigger. What do you think?

And Now ...

A Note from Mom -
When we brought Boondocks home towards the end of April, the thought never occurred to me that we'd be bringing home another puppy within a months time.  I started this blog as Boondocks (as opposed to one of his older siblings) so that it would begin with the beginning of his story rather than jumping into the middle of one of the other dogs tales.  So now that we have Kudzu, I'm unsure whether to leave the blog intact as is with Boondocks telling the story or split it between the two of them and write from each of their perspectives (Boondocks is a whimsical pup and Kudzu is an old, wise soul).  Since you are the one reading the blog, I thought your opinion is the one that matters most.  Please leave a comment sharing your preference!  Thanks so much for loving my pups with me!  - Mom


  1. You could always just use your own voice to share their exploits. That way you wouldn't have to switch between the two.

  2. I think it would be interesting to see things from each point of view... They do have very different personalities....

  3. Split it. WE can keep up and since they both have such different points of view, I personally would love to hear from each of them.


  4. We are a pack of three and we only have one blog. We think having Kudzu and Boondocks share the blog is the best way to go. We all have very different personalities and sometimes one of us gets more blogtime than the other, but in the end it all works out. We think most readers prefer to keep it as one blog too because it helps cut down on the number of blogs to visit.

    Yes, BoonBoy, you have definitely grown, and somehow we don't think you are done yet:)

  5. we share a blog for three :)


  6. not quite so puppyish in the face now - you are starting to look like a big grown up dod - but at heart you will always be the baby boondocks. I think you can share your blog just fine - it is easeir on the readers when we can see all the families adventure in one place.

  7. I would love to continue hearing from Boondocks, as well as hearing from Kudzu. I have my own site, but Nala, my much older sister, does not. Though she occasionally blogs and adds a lot to my posts. Nala will probably never have her own blog (she's too busy sleeping most of the time), but she does enjoy a guest appearance, and I talk about her almost all the time anyway (and as you saw from today's post, she manages to get into many of my photos as well).

    Woofs & hugs!!


  8. let them share!

    Sharing is good for them :)

  9. definitely keep both on one blog! can't wait to see more of their adventures!

  10. I echo what Sugar said and the others too!!

  11. We are three Labs and we share our blog with our Rama...sharing is good!
    Enjoyed our visit to your blog!
    Licks and sniffs,
    Zack, Sassy and Buddy

  12. Hey Boondocks!
    Wow, you are definitely growing up before our very peepers! You're gonna be a heart-breaker fur sure. I think you should share your blog with Kudzu...then you don't have two blogs to try to keep up with and we can see what you are both up to!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  13. Sharing the blog is good.
    Oh boy, you've grown but one thing will not change and that is your cuteness.

  14. I understand your issue. My blog is called "2 brown dawgs" and now we are thinking of adding a third. What to do!

    Boondocks sure is cute!

  15. Growing so quickly! Car rides are getting more fun I'm sure. Writing from both perspectives I think would be even more interesting. Keep it simple...pups will keep you busy enough! :)
    Just Ramblin'

  16. Augie and Ti share a blog--it works! :)

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 …
