Dog Park Fun!!!

Amanda & I did some "show dog" practice today, then later Wendy came, so we decided to take the dogs to an off leash dog park for some fun......here are some of my favourite shots that Wendy took......we did have Boone, Perkins & Tate too, but Boone had cold feet & spent alot of time beside Amanda, Tate kept wandering off so he could pee on everything, & Perkins was in my arms, keeping his little weiner dog feet warm!
Great Day!

Stupid winter, Stupid snow, Stupid Jolene!


I had to fill the bird feeders up today. It's hard now that we have had so much snow, I have to get up the ladder as I stupidly put the feeders nice & high up in the trees so I could watch the birds from my deck. The filling of the first 3 went smoothly enough, but the 4th one was above one of those lovely packed snowbanks. After maneuvering the ladder around a few times I found a safe spot that I could put the ladder in. I got up & grabbed the feeder, climbed down, & then instead of stepping on the last rung, then onto the snowbank, I just jumped down to the bank, missing the last rung. Well, the snowbank gave out, of course it did!!, I fell, hard, on my left hip first, the one that has been aching with arthritis for a year, that sent pain shooting all the way down my leg to my ankle!, then came my elbow, whack!!, also full of arthritis, next my wrist, thump!, then to top it all off, the side of my head, which made a surprisingly empty sound as it hit the driveway! Maybe the fall knocked some sense into me.....
soooo how was everyone else's day!!??

What to do on a very blustery Day !!!

We have a wind advisory today!!! It's been howling for 24 hrs now, I hate the wind, but what can you do? It's too hard to walk any great distance in it, so how about running in it? Tate & Kort both agree that running in the wind is the bestest thing!!!
I know my videos aren't great, they are short, but it's because I am using this digital camera that Brad bought at some pawn shop, it just stops videoing on it's own, it didn't come with any instructions so I'm just going with the flow!!

Brad took this shot of the boys butts!! I love it......my butt was also in the shot, but I edited it out!
Then a bunch of deer showed up in the yard!, sorry about the checkered appearance, I took them through the kitchen window......

You didn't think I'd let you go without watching a couple of videos did you?!! Kort was very excited with the rawhide that Debra sent!...... video

Waiting For Santa

There are only so many things you can do while waiting for Santa to make his appearance.....
Eat..., my favourite!!!, here's the table all set for our chicken dinner.....
The dogs after dinner, surprisingly enough, it was Tate that was sniffing out the counter for left overs!!!......
Take pictures of the dogs, also bored & waiting for Santa....
Tate sleeping by the tree while hoping a present will jump out from the ex-pen...
Kort, actually being well behaved, again!!, laying on his bed......
Finally, just take pictures of the tree before going to bed in hopes of hearing the reindeer when they land on the roof!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Tater Man

Here's the Tate man finally deciding he could pose in front of the tree......such a good boy all ready for Santa's visit!This is a video I took this morning, it was only -29 at the time, positively spring like! You can see Tate wandering into the frame every once in awhile, he just calmly stands back & waits for his opportunity to grab the glove....oh, watch the the famous Kort bite toward Tater's face, he's such a joy!

Bath Day

Today was Tate & Kort's Christmas baths. It was the first time I have had 2 collies to bath on the same day.......not so much fun!!!
I bathed Tate first then put him in a kennel to dry for a bit thinking Kort wouldn't take too long....hmmmm...I under estimated how much coat my Peanut has.....he was about 2 hrs on the table! Then I had to finish Tate, another 2 hrs.....I got to work at 9 am & I left at 2:30......they both look gorgeous! Kort looks so grown up with his ears all done, I took out the glue today, & I left it out for now to watch what his ears do...it's the first time in 6 months Kort has had nothing in his ears!
I didn't get around to taking pictures tonight as I was off for groceries as soon as I got home....I'll take some tomorrow & post them then, for now you can enjoy these 2 pictures taken on the day I picked Kort up.
In this picture Tate & Kort are looking at each other & wondering who the heck the other is!......

In this one Kort trys to give Tate a kiss.....Tate says "are you kidding me??!!"......
