I'm home!!  Sweet home!!  Sweet home!!!

Mom says I was gone for HOURS, but I don't believe her.  (Of course, I did sleep for most of the time.)

So now I'm home and cuddled up next to mommy - right where I'm suppose to be!

I have a pretty blue sock that I have to wear.  Mom says it won't last long though.  Know idea what she means by that!!  Humph!

They sent the growth on my paw off to be tested.  We won't know anything for a week.  I'm glad I have no concept of time because mom says that's too long to have to wonder.

So I'm going to nap now.

Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers.  You guys are the best!!



  1. Oh man, i didn't even think that the doctors would have to send the biopsie away to find out what it is. now we all have to wait longer.

    Oh well, not to worry, everything will be ok.

    Get some sleep buddy.


  2. Glad you're home all safe and sound. Paws crossed for a great report on that nasty growth. At least it isn't on you anymore.

  3. We hope your paw heals real fast.....I'm sure you were very brave!!

    Tail Wuggles, Rubie

  4. You are in our prayers that everything will be fine.

    Hamish & Sophie

  5. Glad you are home, Boondocks. Everything will be well. Take a good rest now.

  6. Glad to hear you are home. We have been thinking about you all day. Hope your biopsy is nice and clean.

    Tucker and Daisy.

  7. We are happy you are home, Boondocks. We know how hard that waiting can be. When Phantom had his last lumpy tested, they said a week but they heard sooner. Hope that is the case for you and hope even more that it is all good news.

    BTW, you look good in blue.

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 …
