Busier than a cat covering poo

We have missed so many of your great blog posts the past couple of weeks.  Mom has been busier than a cat hiding its poo.  It's true...  she's even left yours truly three consecutive days for HOURS at one time.  (We never go hours without the mom!!)  We were sure to leave extra surprises through the house to show her our contempt  for being abandoned!  (She thought those silly play gates would confine us to one place.  HA!!)

After multiple requests for the mom to do pictures for people, she began thinking about turning her hobby into a career.  And so unSIVILizedPhotography has been born.  It kept her busy a couple of days and then she worked an adoption event for our animal shelter ( Saturday.  They had FIVE dogs adopted out - that's out of fourteen that were taken.  A third of the pups that went finding furr-ever homes ain't bad for a few hours of volunteering.  Of course, she could have let us go with her - we would make good spokesdogs for the ones in need of a home!

Here are a few of the mom's pics from last week:

 We do think it is cool that mom is placing an emphasis on family photography that includes pets.  If we can get some extra toys and treats out of the deal, it might not be so bad after all.  We'll have to wait and see.

If you'd like to view some of mom's other pictures and support this new endeavor, be sure to follow her new Facebook page:  unSIVILizedPhotography.

And now we're off to check out all the groovy happenings around blogville that we've missed out on!!

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 …
