Violet adventures

Today we met @ the Glasgow park - one of our favorite parks. With the beautiful sunset in the sky, it's was a perfect ending to our walk.
Afterward, we went shopping @ the pet store and she was a HIT! Several women were drawn to the beautiful airedale and petted, talked to her. One even took her picture! She was such a good girl!

Blizzard of 2009

Just got done watching Matt snow blow his way through the neighborhood. Took some cute shots over the last few days. Now we're just hanging out waiting for the Eagles game this afternoon.

We await

The crates are set. The beds are in the room. The leash and collars are ready to go. Picking up the airedales tomorrow night, Quincey and Violet are flying in from Oklahoma.
I'm a wreck...........what the heck was I thinking. I have cats - 4 cats, am I nuts to bring in 2 not 1 - 2 puppies? I guess the answer is yes. The kitties have no idea what's going to happen, and yet they know something is happening.
I"m excited too. Looking forward to walks, treats, and tricks. In time it'll all be good...right, right?
Gustov is so handsome...

11-3-09 wrong

So I found out that the orange cat does have a home and is appox 15 years old! HA! I thought he was a homeless kitten. The neighbors next door feed 'ED' and have seen him for around 10-12 years. I didn't notice this cat until last summer. He belongs to another family and goes home @ night. During the day he hangs out between our two homes. Here he is close to my young boys, everyone loves ED.

However there are also a mom and kitten running around our houses too. So the cat carrier is being used by ED, mom & Kitten and a hairless cat in the neighborhood. Who knew!

10/18/09 Not Fair

This is the display in Joanne fabrics. Notice the lovely, fluffy, happy puppy on the left and the scared, wrapped, wide eyed black cat on the right. Dogs get all the glory! It's a shame for the kitties....

It's raining, it's pouring and there's a neighborhood kitty that's out in this weather. I can't sleep @ night thinking this pour orange girl is outside. The last two days have been soppy, and cold. So Matt and I made her some shelter, with toys and treats.
Of course we can't find her right now but I keep looking! She's the same kitty from the 080209 post.

Dinner with a friend @ a place I didn't think I would ever go into. I mean come on, EAT in huge letters? But alas, Borders Cafe is delicious and the cheapest date, according to Matt. He likes that!

10/10/09 Get that bird!

I wish I had sound with this pix. Gustov chirps and swipes the window trying to get the birds.


This little garden is on the way home from work on a corner. I love these long colorful flowers from the window of the car.


I love my Dunkin Donuts Hot chocolate with whipped cream. M,W,TH only as it's on the way to work!

10/7/09 My cupboard

This is kitty cat dinner food. They love the kind with gravy. and DON'T forget about the treats. I have started to 'hide' them and Gustov LOVES the hunt!

We're back to real life after our vacations. Let the picture of the day begin again!
This is Matt running the 1mile run up Main Street in Newark. Our registration benefits the Newark police dogs. Paco, Sjors.
Sjors did a wonderful demonstration. He's from the Netherlands, and understands Dutch and English. Don't mess with Sjors!!!!

We love going to Petsmart...there are always dogs and owners shopping together...I LOVE that!
This human had her 3 girls with her.

8-16-09 Wheels B

I used to call Daniel "wheels" when he was younger. He always was on wheels, pushing wheels, talking about cars, trucks, flying high on his skateboard or bike. This is the cool car he can't drive for 3 more months. 'Wheels' is still going strong.

8-15-09 PARTY!

Matt's 50th Birthday party with friends and family @ Di's pool! Good times but he needed help blowing out the candles. 50 is rough!!!

8-14-09 Matt's 50th Bday
