Our family is BIG fans of The Buddies movie series.  We have each on DVD:  Space Buddies, Snow Buddies, Air Buddies, and Santa Buddies.  We love to have family movie night and enjoy pupcorn and watch the movies with the hoo-mans. 

Watching the movies as much as we have, we have begun to realize how much The Buddy Pack has in common with The Love Shack Pack. 

Don't believe us?  See for yourselves!

First up, we have Budderball.   Budderball is a firm believer that: "A fellow can’t fight evil on an empty stomach.”  Actually he believes a balanced diet of most anything in sight is needed for all of life's situations. 

I'm sure after seeing the NDS blog, y'all are thinking that I'm the most like Budderball.  I hate to disappoint, but the honor actually goes to the one, the only: KUDZU!  Mom says because Zu-Dude was not fed on a regular schedule before coming to live with us, he's a pig.  However, with Zu only having three legs, we have to be extra diligent with his dietary needs.  Should he get too big, it would put too much stress on his remaining front leg.  So as much as Zu-Dude likes to pig-out, mom doesn't let him.

Our fearless matriarch, Scarlet, best matches wits to the buddies' Buddha.  Always calm.  Always wise.  And always in control.  Scarlet and Buddha even share the same philosophy on life, love, and the reason for living:  "Be One With The Ball".

Always a crowd pleaser is the buddies' fashionable Rose Bud.  And in keeping with The Buddy's standard - so is our fabulous Miz. Rose Bud.

Both Rose Bud's believe PINK is the answer to all life's questions and “You’re too extraordinary to be ordinary.”

Not at all conceited, just very convinced is the next Buddy, B-Dawg. 

I am sure that you are all again thinking that I must surely be B-Dawg's Love Shack Twin being as cool as I am and all.  Alas, the title goes to my big, bro Cosmo.

Like B-Dawg, Cosmo loves playing ball and blinging out, dawgs!

Who's left?  Oh yeah, me and my Buddy clone.

Who am I most like, you wonder???? 

Drum Roll please.


No explanation is needed.

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 …
