Trixie the Snuggler

We keep some blankets and pillows on the bottom shelf of a shelving unit in our family room.  We were playing games at a table near the shelves. Trixie burrowed her way into the middle of the blankets and took at least a two hour nap right there on the bottom shelf.  Click to […]

Gus and Trixie Traveling ‘Show Me’ State Tour

Gus and Trixie were pretty good travelers. We had a three and a half hour drive to Kirksville and back  over the weekend.  Once they settled down they did all right in the car.

Merry Christmas from Gus & Trixie

Panting Pals


Trixie loves going for a ride.  We drove over to the old house to work on a couple small things.
