What's cuter than puppies? ME!!!

Well, after just three weeks, Mom has abandoned her dream of becoming a professional photographer.  (She says it's pretty sad when you can't give it away!)  That's fine with us.  We get more Mommy time.  What we do not like is that she is regularly taking pictures for the animal shelter where we volunteer.  I do not like at all that she plays with all those cute, little puppies and more than that - she acts like she really enjoys it.

I have to admit some of those pups are just too adorable, but I still prefer being Mom's main photography subject.  I am after all the best model ever.


Tux - Mom says he'd have come home with us if she'd not set the limit for our home as NO MORE critters.  Thank goodness,  mom observes some boundaries!!!

Blitz and Coach

We weren't sure what Blitz told Coach, but it must've been really funny stuff!

Mom was mesmerized by Blitz's hazel eyes.

  1. Hope "MOM" changes her mind! We love her photographs! She's very talented.

  2. Don't worry, Boonie, Mom is just trying to help those pups find good homes. You are still her boy.

  3. Woo there, nice to meet woo over on our blog - don't worry about those puppies, just give Mom "that look" and she'll melt and realize "she don't need no stinkin puppies!"

    PS - but we agree, they are way too cute!

  4. Mom's trying to make the photography thing work for her too - but there are so many people doing the same thing! I don't know how you come home each day without a couple of extra pups!


  5. Awww, tell your mommy NEVER to give up her dream! She takes WONDERFUL pictures! And YOU of course, are definitely the cutest! :)

    Big woofs & hugs, <3

  6. Adorable photos ... don't give up your dream!

    What state are you in? If you lived near us, we would love to have you come photograph our Boxer get-togethers. Imagine 20-30 Boxers all at once! ♥

    Boxer Hugs,

  7. Dang your good!! Wish you were closer to us... We found you on Blog Hop for Pets and we hope you hop on over to see us!!

  8. oh my goodness those little ones are cute...any business is hard nowadays

  9. Please tell mom to stick with her photography, it takes time for a business to develop. Her work is just so beautiful it would be a shame to see it not be used.

    Now as for those puppies, we don't think our Mom would have it in her to say no:)

  10. To start, I hope you're doing well and mending well!!

    Second, I'm like your Mom, I love taking pictures of the pups, and her photos are just stunning! I hope these precious ones find their way to their forever homes, with her photos, how could they not? :-))

  11. I think your mom should keep taking pictures too. But I have to say that I don't think My Vickie could go to the shelter and do what she does.

    We admire her soooo much. We are surprised all the pups didn't come home with her.


  12. It is a very good thing that our mama doesn't work at the shelter because we would have a whole houseful of dogs!!! Those are some really cute pups there!! Your mama takes AWESOME pics!! We hope you are feeling better!

  13. Hey Boondocks!
    Wow, I think your mom should hang in there with her pix! Maybe try some arts/crafts shows. Anyway, I'm glad she goes to be sweet to those poor pooches and I'm sure they'll all be adopted. You're totally safe because she'd never find a pup cuter and sweeter than you!!!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  14. why did your Mom change her mind after 3 weeks?

    She shouldn't have, just sayin'!!

    "anything worth having takes time" or something to that effect!

  15. Woof! Woof! Your mom n my have inspire of the same things. OH your mom is a great pawtographer. BTW what camera she uses. My mom planned to buy a new one but instead she used the funds to publish my book (your copy will be mailed on Monday). Tell you mama she a PAWsome PAWtographer. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  16. Those little critters do look cute but YOU are definitely the cutest and the most photogenic one!

    Your mom's pictures are really beautiful, hopefully she will pick up her dream on and off, just saying...

  17. I too am mesmerized by blitz!

    Stop on by for a visit

  18. So great that your mom takes photos for the local shelter! :)

  19. oh my! they're all so adorable. And, i too, have a critter limit.

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 …
