Zippy enjoying some nice warm sunshine.
As I am sitting here typing this, it is 32 degrees and the forecast is calling for snow.
It was in the mid 60s yesterday.
Smudge has a very cute shadow.
A pudgy little thing with tall ears.
Not sure if you can see them, but she has a few new front teeth.
The drool is from the loss of one of her canine teeth only moments before this shot was taken.
I have put in a request for training help with Jane Killion.
She has a most wonderful book on training dogs called
Training success with Impossible Dogs.
We really need it here.
This is impossible.
Even without teeth...she can still hold onto my jeans.
Smudge and her brother Gus.
I did not do it!!!!
Nope...it was not me.
I am much too sweet and innocent to be accused of such a crime against furniture.
Handmade by my grandpa.
Maybe I could lick it to make it better.
Hmmmm.....this tastes GOOD....
Seriously...I did not do this!!!
Gus did it!
I get no respect around here.
Please send more handmade furniture.
I also enjoy antiques and I have been known to chew on some concrete.
Just don't tell anyone.
Here is the rare and elusive one headed two bodied horse.
Lots of fun to ride and easy to feed.
Two horses two heads two bodies...
I saw a sign recently that said
"Reality is only for those who have no imagination"
A new fountain.
New wall hanging/stepping stone/backsplash...
really it can be anything you want it to be.
This birdbath is going into a silent auction for my friend Mary Anne.
She was the one injured in a car accident earlier this summer.
Nov. 3rd High Country Press Lobby, Boone, NC
We will have lots of beautiful artwork and items from local businesses
in the auction.
There will also be entertainment from
The Lost Faculties
Dave Haney and Lisa Baldwin
The Black Sheep Theatre
If you are in the area feel free to stop in.
When I said that I was taking it slow with Smudge and Zippy...
I meant it.
Here they are on different sides of the fence getting to know each other a little better.
They are actually playing.
Zippy is doing his hucklebutt dance and Smudge is jumping around.
They really got into it.
I like that!
I just want to make sure Smudge is big enough to handle it if something goes wrong.
Just being careful.
Zippy has a few loose screws.
So far though..he is doing well with the whole thing.
Smudge is really excited about the whole concept.
Just look at the cute tummy she has!
I had to quit letting them play together with Zippy wearing his muzzle, because
Smudge kept biting the muzzle and I could see that it was stressing Zippy out.
I want this to be like smooth sailing.
No stress, just fun.
STILL off on that front leg
However...it is much improved and I think that with time it will be fine.
We have decided that he must have hurt some of his soft tissue while "playing" with
his brother Otis. The vet and farrier were unable to really determine
anything specific. I am glad to see him much improved and hope that will
continue. Amazingly he has shown no signs of pain throughout this and that
does make me optimistic that he will have a complete recovery.
Have a great weekend folks!!!
