More Oldies

So... I've been having a lot of fun looking through all my old pictures! I thought I'd share a few more with you.

Yes, Spuds is a very good sport as some of you said :) He gets really excited any time we dress him up because he knows it means lots of treats! He walks around to everyone in the house as if showing off his new look. (He's very needy so I think he figures if it gets him attention from everybody it's a good thing!)

Another St. Patrick's Day 2006 pic:

I think he stole that camo scarf from the laundry needing folded in the background :) This was taken in 2007.

And this was taken in 2009..not so old :) Shadow 'smiles' a lot but I can never seem to get it in a picture! This is not very good quality but you can kind of see her sporting a smile in the hopes of getting some of daddy's food. It may look like a snarl in the pic but in person you can easily tell the difference. Do any of your dogs smile? Shadow and Spuds both do it a lot, especially when we first come home.

This is one of my parents' dogs you haven't met yet! Her name in Koko- her parents were a border collie and a border collieXcoon hound. She was still a cute little pup in this pic taken in 2005 while we were on vacation in the Outer Banks.

And this is Kyla, who you've seen in past posts. This was taken in 2006 while we were on vacation at a lake house....Kyla went swimming....she wasn't too impressed :)

I had some other pics I wanted to share, but for some reason they wouldn't load onto I'll save those for another time. And to the commenter from the last post-I DO wonder what we did before digital cameras- it's so easy now! But I think I'm going to scan some of Spud's puppy pics because he was too cute for everyone not to see!

Hope everyone enjoyed :)

Wireless, Birthdays, and Old Pics

Chad has wireless internet at his house now so I can be on my laptop anytime! WOOHOO! I was looking through some of my old pics and found some cute ones of the dogs...

Here's Spuds dressed up for Christmas 2005, so that would have made him 1yr and 9mo old in this pic:

And this was Spuds on St. Patrick's day 2006, so he was 2 yrs old...and blinked in the pic, haha!

Finally, here's Kado from 2008. He was only months old if you can't tell. So cute! (His birthday is next month, he'll b a whole 2 years old!)

I have puppy pics of Spuds from when he was realllyyy little, but that was before the time of having a digital camera, so it will take some effort for me to get those on here. I plan on doing that at some point, he was the cutest little puppy.

We don't really have any puppy pics of Shadow because she was 11 months old when we rescued her. We aren't even sure when her birthday is, and really, not even sure when her "gotcha" day is because originally she was going to be more of a foster... but we know she's about a month older than Kado, so her birthday was probably the first week of February...and the first picture I have of her is from December 31st, but I know she was with us for Christmas because I had a stocking for her from last year. So I think she came to us about a week before Christmas. I meant to blog about her special days, but, OOPS! So there you have it! Let's here it for a happy estimated birthday for Shadow :) She's 2, and even though she's only been with us for about a year, I can't imagine what life would be like without her being part of the family. She's just perfect, and it seems like she's always been here :)

Well, it's 1:21am here, so I'm signing off. Goodnight!

Have you heard how much it snowed in Ohio?'s a lot!! My parents' dog Kasey (you've seen her in past posts) is loving it, so i took a short video to show the snow.. and Kasey. (Make sure your volume isn't up too high, I was calling her name).

It's been cold here in Ohio! Just a few weeks ago it was sooo snowy outside:

Spuds doesn't get too excited about the white fluffy stuff...

But Shadow does!



While it might look like Shadow "burned rubber" in the yard running around so much, I think that cirlular pattern is from someone getting stuck in the yard...haha.

Please let me in. It's faareezzzing!!

He doesn't know what he's talkin' about, let's go play!!!

This helps show how much snow we got...

So we decided to keep the dogs in and play with stuffies from the thrift store (Thanks for the suggestion, Houston Pittie Pack!)

Yummm, 25 cent stuffyyy

Shadow looks so sweet in this pic....don't let her fool you ;)

And since it was so cold here, Chad and I decided to go on a cruise! Actually, we planned this in December, and it came at perfect timing!

Spuds was there...kind of.

At sea on one of the decks.

It was so beautiful the whole time. We went to a few different islands in the Bahamas. And we did a Sea Lion Encounter, it was amazing! Definately a much needed get away :)
