Trixie loves the new pet door

Gus, not so much.

You can see Gus in the window reflection.  Trixie goes in and out all day now.  We have to set Gus in front of the door and when it opens we kind of nudge him through.  Hopefully, he’ll get the hang of it before too long.  It’s a temporary […]


Dogs of Spring

Gus and Trixie enjoying the fist morning of the spring season. Of course, being the midwest, we woke up to giant snowflakes that would accumulate on the grass then melt away and another batch come thru and accumulate and melt off. This is the third batch of snow (that I saw anyway).  The dogs […]


Dogs and Frogs

Gus and Trixie we outside doing their business last night. When we went to let them in we had a small visitor stuck to the outside of the sliding patio door.  He stayed there while we let the dogs in.  They were oblivious to the amphibian.



Staring Contest

Trixie and I do this fairly often.  Gus, well he walks to the beat of a different drumstick.

They both need haircuts.

Pups at rest

Trixie with her head on her toy bone waiting for me to play with her while Gus is napping in the background.



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.




Lap Nap

Trixie was worn out last night from traveling and being in a strange place.  She was very happy and content once Daddy and family got back from the graduation.





Gus is going in for oral surgery on Monday.  He has a couple of teeth that need to be removed. 




Gus and new cousin Lucy

Gus met his new cousin Lucy (not Sandy as previously reported) over the weekend.  Here they’re looking at squirrels out in the front yard.  They got along just fine.  Trixie wasn’t so sure about the newcomer.  We were also dog-sitting our two other granddogs  the last few days so at one point we had five dogs […]
