The hell otherwise known as bathing...

V gave the dogs a bath on Saturday, since they were gettin' kinda stinky. Can't you just tell they LOVE these days?!

Jedi master...

Duke likes to plant his ball somewhere in the kitchen whenever we open the screen door. It's his way to MAKE us throw the ball somewhere. This time I didn't give in. He just sat there for a few minutes and tried to come up with a plan. Either that or he was trying to channel "the force" to get his ball back.

Quality control...

Eddie's on the clock again, making sure the cable workers don't try anything tricky.

Caught catching some rays again. Good thing they both have those coats of fur on to protect their skin!

Duke making sure none of his posessions have a chance to get away.

Rain, rain, go away...

They were stuck in their house last Friday night when it started to rain. They looked so bummed that I had to let them inside.

So happy to be free...

Eddie enjoying the cageless world on a sunny day.

Don't bother me, I'm foaming...

When you pick up a ball when Duke's around, he get into a trance. He won't take his eyes off the ball & his his teeth start to chatter when his jaw starts to chomp up & down. He does this so fast that he starts to foam at the corner of his mouth. It always cracks me up cause I get to see his little teeth.

Another Eddie mystery...

When I was brushing him I noticed that he's not just a redhair...he's a redhair with black highlights!

I'd like to super size that...

Duke loves his toys. Even if it's 3 times bigger than normal & can barely fit in his mouth.

That time of year again...

Get ready for the winter hair shedding storm. 80% chance of fur clumps and shedding flurries.

Friday, February 17, 2006

What's that?!?!

Oh, it's just my shadow.

Learn from your mistakes...

Eddie was absent on the day they were teaching that lesson.

I can't believe he did it again!! He was trying so hard to squeeze through this time, that he almost got stuck!

If not you, then me...

Duke has this game that he plays when nobody is around to give him the attention he needs. He takes his ball and will place it right on the edge of the pool and will nudge it little by little until it falls in. Whenever I watch him do it, he always seems shocked that it's in the pool and has to wait for the ball to drift back to him. His concentration is intense and he'll wait all day if he needed to.

I don't know about you, but this doesn't seem like such a fun game to me. But then again, who am I to judge? I'm not a dog.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Owning a dog can teach you great life lessons.

Don't take everything so seriously.

Learn how to express your feelings.

Make time to be silly once in a while.

But most of all, smile and be happy!

Safe haven...

The ball was probably trying to escape the wrath of the possessive, neurotic, ball-obsessed blonde thing that is always picking it apart with his teeth.

Sunday, February 12, 2006

Maybe yours is better than mine...

Duke & Eddie decided to swap colors for the evening. (Eddie still figuring out how to sleep on the new bed)

Saturday, February 11, 2006

Worked up a sweat...

When I rescued Eddie from the other side of the gate, he ran straight for the water bowl.

He drank so much that half the bottle was almost gone! Plotting a break-in & escape sure can make you thirsty!

To get to the other side...

Normally, when I get home, the dogs have already heard my car pulling up & are waiting by the back door before I can even get there. The other day was different. As I walked up to the sliding door, I only saw one lonely blonde dog.

I called for Eddie, but didn't see him anywhere. I started to get a little worried, but then turned around to see this.

How the heck did he get himself into that situation?!?! I know he can't jump over the doghouse & as far as I know, he hasn't learned how to fly. Or maybe I'm just underestimating the Eddie talent factor? Maybe not.

Seems like he ripped the pool fence a little bit more just so he could bask in the glory of having the grass all to himself.

Looks like he figured out how to get in, but didn't think about the getting out part. He tried to squeeze through a small hole, but he's just not as slender as he used to be.

So he just went back to the point of entry and waited to be rescued.

Why all of a sudden would he want to go back there so badly? Did he need some alone time away from Duke? Did he know that he just got caught being somewhere he wasn't supposed to?! Heck no! He was caught red-handed & just smiled like there was nothing wrong! He's lucky I'm a sucker for a happy face!

A little behind in the learning curve...

Eddie was still trying to figure out how to sit in these crazy things. Without walls on the side to keep him in (like their old beds), he was having trouble adjusting.

Wednesday, February 08, 2006

Smells like new!

It was time to send the old stinky beds outside & get some new ones for the inside!

Duke testing out the fluffyness.

Eddie trying it on for size. He seemed bored with this one.

Trying to decide which they liked better.

Finally picked their favorite colors.

Who knew dogs could be so picky with accessories!

Tuesday, February 07, 2006

Smells good...

It must be for us!

Sense of accomplishment...

Duke was so proud of the work that he did on that ragged ball. I think he wanted to put it out of it's misery by shredding it to tiny, itty-bitty, bite-sized pieces.

Look at him gleam with pride.

Eddie's A.D.D. in action...

He can never pay attention to one thing for more than 3 seconds.
