Remember Katrina

To honor the 5 years since hurricane Katrina, we met Starr for a walk at Valley Forge Park.

Starr is my cousin and she was rescued during the Katrina tragedy. She is now living a great life in Pa.

Unlike me, she really doesn’t like to have her picture taken. I forgot to remind mom to put the camera on sports setting. But you get the idea, she’s a chow, Belgian Malinois mix.

I tried to spot the squirrels and deer. We saw deer today....going down hill.....daddy almost bought it but he is very athletic and was able to hang on as I took him for a ride.

We get along very well.

Starr learned to swim @ a special dog pool. Her mom (my mom’s sister) says that she was terrified BUT look at her now!

She loves her water. Swim, swim, paddle, paddle.

Me? I just want to ‘terrorize’ that leaf!

We met some nice doggies out for a walk. Talk about a pack! Looking good pack!

The east coast has many covered bridges. This one is in Valley Forge Park, yes that same VFP from the revolutionary war....horrible winter there.

Who, cuts off the beautiful Airedale at the nose? Who does that??


  1. Our folks will be flying back east and drive to NE PA for 2 days to visit the old granny. We will have to go to poochie camp for awhile. Not so happy about least no one will make Hootie wear hats. Bwahahaha!
    Smooches from pooches,
    BabyRD and Hootie

    ps-it was nice of your auntie to adopt a katrina orfink!

  2. Hi Violet!
    I like the picture of you holding up your paw like a pointer dog! Is that the way you point out the deer for your dad? Good job!


  3. Great mom to Star, lousy photographer. Too much going on, covered bridge, people, dogs, water, new camera....oh my. The other pix taken by the professional are super. Love you all!

  4. My dog looks EXACTLY like the Belgian Malinois/Chow, Starr!!! Crazy!
