~15 Candles –beyond special
I just wanted to send you a quick note and let you know that Greta (Deli x Zeke) turns 15 today! She is incredibly healthy besides some significant arthritis and weakness in her hind legs, and lots of lumps. She still climbs on the couch, eats food off the counter, and sprints after the UPS truck. She’s been a love of a dog, sweet and protective of the kids, and fiercely loyal.
Oh my gosh — we are thrilled that Greta is celebrating 15 candles. The last time she was featured on the blog was her 5th birthday (unless I am missing something). Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I remember vividly the first time we spoke so many years ago. You were preparing to graduate and to move across the country. I wondered how we would make it all work–but then this.
~Spunk and Snuggles
We just love Kenai more and more each day. He’s a little adventurer, and a great combination of spunk and snuggle. Casey has been working on his beginning hunting training – introducing him to birds and gunshots. He’s been doing fantastic!
His vet cleared him to start exploring more, and to go camping! So last week we headed up to Olympic National Park, and then down the coast, stopping in Astoria for a night before heading home. He wasn’t able to go everywhere in the national park, of course, but there were a few dog-friendly areas to explore, and meet new people. He loved it! Here’s a few shots taken on our trip.
Kaylen and Casey
Cliff and I are so delighted to receive your report. What a fun adventure. Thanks for the hard work–keep it up. You are off to a fabulous beginning.
I spoke a bit too soon…
Maizie is almost 19 months old. She is so darn smart! She knows that I am “Linda” and that Jerry is “Jerry” and she knows the names of special other people in her life. Here is an adorable video for you to enjoy. This was yesterday. I’ll set the scene. My mom, “Grandma,” our son, “Andy” and Andy’s Doberman “Dio” were coming over for dinner. I made the mistake of telling Maizie too soon! Here was her immediate reaction! 😉
