It has been awhile since I did a crew update. So here goes….

Loki- Still active and silly. No recent shoe thefts!

Loki

Loki

Freyia- Loving being Nanny to the two new pups. She is happiest taking care of puppies.
21 Aug 15 Freyia

Ozzy- Being his happy Go lucky Self
15 Aug 15 Ozzy

Penny- still our rascally girl who has to go on all road trips.
21 Aug 15 Penny I go this

Lotus- alas being spayed while her uterus was still swollen has made her a walking tank! Still the sweetest girl.
15 Aug 15 Lotus

Titon- happy go lucky as ever and still dispensing hugs!
15 Aug 15 Titon

Flora- Has her coat back and is happy as can be, despite being on lock down due to her escape artist ways.
15 Aug 15 Flora

Goliath- our resident non Golden – happy goofy, and keeping us safe from … well everything. It is his job.
15 Aug 15 Goliath

Willow- Sadly no puppies. I think she is a split heat gal. Meaning I will have to watch her more closely next heat cycle. Otherwise she is happy playing with her baby sisters.
16 Aug 15 Willow

Jotun/Joey- doing well, finally stopped running between my legs. He is calmer and happier. Loves his playtime with his ‘brothers’.
15 Aug 15 Joey

Ramses- Such a gentle soul and such a good big brother to Udens. I am so proud of my handsome boy.

Udens- total snuggler! Sweet, loving, smart and listens better than the older dogs! You never know.
15 Aug 15 Udens  full out

A dogs Life…

I can’t tell you how many times I have been asked what is my favorite time in a dogs life. Time?? I have two stages of their time with us.
Puppy hood for the laughter and the wonder. Senior hood for the laughter and the wonder.

Let me explain.
Puppy hood you can’t help but laugh at their antics, and learning the world wonders. Their joy at learning new things, meeting new people/dogs/cats well meeting someone new.
Loki 31 July 03
21 Aug 15 Lady D toy time

The end of their life when they show joy about going for a car ride, seeing you when you get home, and the goofy antics that have become part of your heart. Such as the other day after going down to Georgia to get Lady D Loki came over for his normal wait for morning rounds. He slept through my return home. I saw him his face beamed joy. I opened my arms and yelled ” Little Man”, he bounced up and barked just like a puppy and ran as fast as he could. Time merged and I pictured him as a tiny puppy doing the same thing.
23 July 15 Loki

Your going really those two times. Well, the time spent in the middle is just icing on the cake for me.

Preteen antics- grabbing a roll of paper towels and running towards you like they found a gem…
15 Aug 15 Myrie  hurry up MOM
This morning Camilla came running with a seat cushion with a happy gleam on her face.

Teenager- the dreaded teenage hood. The time they turn their ears off!
15 July 15 Ramses I got two toys
but they manage to still make you laugh at them.

Early Adulthood- I am a big boy/girl and will listen like a good pup… until distracted….
16 May 15 Willow

Mid adult hood- Yep, I am a good pupster I listen 90% of the time… until distracted…
15 Aug 15 Titon

Pre Senior hood- I listen, take my time but I listen. Until distracted…
16 July 15 Lotus

Early Senior hood- don’t let the white wisps of fur fool ya, I still get into mischief….
15 Aug 15 Penny

Double Digits Senior hood – Yep, I am going white but I know the ropes. Happy Go lucky time…..
21 Aug 15 Freyia

Mid Senior hood ( 12 yrs ) – second puppy hood! 21 Aug 15 Loki got this

Bonus Senior Hood time ( 12 yrs plus) –
Andy still fetching
this time is precious – enjoy each day because it could be the last adventure together….
