Bigger Bed Back Story

Remember this picture from last week's Wordless Wednesday?

Lots of you said it was time for Mom to get me a bigger bed. 

The truth is:  this isn't my bed at all.  It belongs to Joy and Ohno.

The truth is:  I want this bed for my own.  Most often before I get in it, I have to take one or both of them out of it.  Yes, I really do literally remove them from their comfy spot by gently lifting them in my mouth and putting them on the floor.  It may seem harsh, but it's a dog eat dog world!

Move over, Morkies.  I am  Boondocks.  Here me "AROOOF!"


P.S.  Mom is going to be working on a new background and header for us.  She wants a better template to make some of our blog features more accessible.  Keep an eye out for our new look coming soon


  1. So Boondocks, do you then allow Joy and Ohno to sleep in your bed? We knew you would be very gentle and remove them carefully:)

    We are excited to see your new look. The Momster won't change ours because she is convinced she will mess it up.

  2. Thats mighty mean of you, to remove them from their very own bed!

  3. I thought you were supposed to hang off of the bed. You sure did look comfortable!!!

  4. Boon I am a little surprised to hear that you would remove them so gently, what would happen if you just layed right down on top of them.

    I mean seriously....I am pretty sure you wouldn't crush them but it sure would make them clear the bed when ever you came into the room from now on.

    Although it is probably really cute, you lifting them out to move them.

    Hey, My Vickie loves the header picture right now. You guys look goooood in the mountains.


  5. you could probably lay on top of those little ones, BOL

  14. LOVE IT! desmond is the same way--can't get enough of his toy poodle cousin's teeny bed. it's so damn funny.

  15. Hey Boondocks!
    Wow, great job of asserting your authority...gently. BOL Even though the bed looks small, it must be just right to suit you and that's all that matters! Let those little ones get the new bed. :)
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  16. at least you take the little ones out first - it would be terrible if you just curled up in the bed with them under you !

  17. This story cracks me up.

    Duncan has a nice big canvass kennel in my bedroom, complete with an enormous dog bed, a blanket, the giant stuff Winnie the Pooh and a quilt my mother knitted for him. But one of our cats, Olive, has decided she really likes it in there so she'll go in, plop down, spread out and sleep all day. When it's time for bed Dunc will go to "his room" (as we call it), see Olive, turn and walk away to find a nice cozy spot on the floor. He refuses to disturb Olive.

  18. You really pick up the little ones and move them? Ha ha ha! You rule!

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 …
