After Thanksgiving fun.


This is what Zippy did for Thanksgiving.
He does not play well with others.
Because of this little "problem", I always try to take him out for a long walk
before we leave for holiday festivities.  
It is his way of celebrating and I get to see some pretty scenery. 
Our peaceful breath before the storm of activity and feasting.  



The mushrooms are still going strong....although they are a bit slimy.




A very interesting tree with barbed wire. 




I even let Zippy wade through his most favorite mud hole.
It was Thanksgiving....




The weather here has been incredible.  




Happy Thanksgiving horses!




Happy Thanksgiving minis.




Smudge...ready to hit the road.  




A beautiful barn on the way to the family celebration.



Move over Gus!  You are taking up the whole backseat. 



Labradors....you just can't travel with them..



On the way to the feast.  



My sister and my niece. 
About a second after this was taken...Smudge was frightened by a loud noise and 
ran for the hills.  



Oh my!!!
Those ears...

After all of the celebrating was over, we decided that a horseback ride was in order.
After all....the weather was perfect and well...we just do not have that may perfect weather days
this time of year.  



Oracle wearing his new Renegade boots. 
We had to modify them to fit his little feet. 




Man oh man....I LOVE my horse!
Eco is so much fun to ride and nothing in this world makes me feel better than 
to be on my horse.  All of your worries just disappear. 



Not to mention the adrenaline rush you get when you are having such a good time.
I think everyone has that sort of feeling when they are doing something that they love.



Danza (25 years old) was really kicking up her heals when we got home.



She really was unhappy with us for not taking her.



She even had a few words to say about it. 



Poor little thing. 



Here she is....happy again and all is well with her world.




Smudge had the pleasure of meeting Bumble's sister, Maggie.

They really had a great time together. 
Maggie lives with Merle who also visited.



Zippy enjoying yet another beautiful day.
Nice weather....I will miss ye when you are gone.
(I miss it already....we are having heavy rain and high wind)



The kids enjoying their Thanksgiving pumpkin.





Zippy jumping for joy.




A parting shot of Smudge and her new smudges.
Just look at the constellations on that heavenly body!
I think that I can spot the Big Dipper.

Ha ha ha...

Another Thanksgiving Post


Hi!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

(Can you believe that my mom made me wear this crazy getup?)

I love my new wild turkey headdress.
(she made me say that)



I am thankful for my new Kong toy.
I am also thankful that Gus is getting a bath....



When will this be over?



Can I take this thing off?




Please....



Oh brother.....

I hope everyone has a wonderful day.  

Love your family, friends, and memories....great and small. 

Smooches....Smudge.

Thanksgiving and chewing.



Hello...I want to wish everyone a very very Happy Thanksgiving.
Pass the mashed potatoes!  





I am in BIG trouble!!!
My chewing has been out of control.





Really..



I don't know why I do it....
It just happens.
I even chewed the sheetrock off of the wall. 
For no reason. 



Then...I chewed up my crate. 
Took the zipper right off.
The funny thing is that I was not even in the crate....
I just did it for fun.



I have been working on this chair too.
Trying to sneak some fiber into my diet.



I just can't help myself.
Then I get in trouble....and people get upset.
It's sad.



But really....how can folks be upset with me???

I mean...just look at how cute I am.  
Oh....don't look at he arm of the chair....
LOOK at ME...



Okay..onto another subject.
We had this wonderful and beautiful rainbow the other day.
It was possibly the brightest rainbow that I have ever laid eyes on. 
A double one too. 



While out in the woods, right before it snowed...I saw this cluster of mushrooms.
The mushrooms had these little termite-ish looking creatures crawling around aimlessly.
It kind of looks like Monkey Bread with bugs.



Same mushrooms after the little dusting of snow that we had.
I guess the cold weather killed the bugs. 
They were a beautiful color.



I took this photo...walked away and two minutes later..
I had a hole in the arm of the chair.  
Nice.



Ha..I will just blame Smudge for the chewed up fence. 




Smudge checking out the hose.


She was scared of it at first and then tried to eat the water.

A little video.



We trimmed all of the perennials in our flower beds back this weekend.
Smudge was not happy about that.  She loves to hide in the flower beds. 



Here is the little chewer...
tired from the days of chipping through wood and leather. 
Not to mention all of the toys and rib bones that she has been getting. 



Notice the chewed up crate in the background. 




Leaving you with this tranquil scene....Please think about me over this next week.
I am running out of furniture and I am scared to consider what she will chew next.  
Wish me luck.

I hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!
