This one was edited with a vintage look, I like it because it left his eyes green.

“Who’s kitty?”

This is my kitty BW…you guessed it, that stands for black and white Winking smile He was a stray who took up residence on our porch shortly after we moved in nine years ago and soon moved in to the house as a permanent resident Smile He is the best cat, just as sweet as he can be, and a great mouser!

“I hope you post another photo so we can see how much they’ve grown. How long will they be staying?”

“Life is busy, huh? Every year I look forward to summer, thinking life will slow down. It never does.”

Boy isn’t that the truth! The harder I try the farther behind I seem to get. So glad I am not the only one.

“hope your training didn’t get rained out.”

We were lucky and had good weather while training but shortly after we were done the skies turned dark and it poured! We worked on water marks today, and the dogs loved getting wet on such a hot day.

Here a few photos of Titan…

This ‘N That Thursday

Today we are joining our friends over at 2 Brown Dawgs for This ‘N That Thursday’s blog hop!

This is what she has to say about the hop,

A little of this and a little of that and everything in between…

Finally the big day is here, my niece and nephew arrived at our house last night about 9:30. Wow have they grown from two years ago. I didn’t have time to get a new photo today but check back tomorrow for Follow-up Friday and I will have one. They will be here for the next seven weeks and although that sounds like a long time I know it will fly by.

Riva, Maia and Cheyenne were barking at the kids when they first came in and then Hailee kissed Riva on the nose and she started smiling and was so excited to see her girl. You see Riva is only my dog when Hailee is not here, when she is around I am just an old shoe in Riva’s eyes Winking smile  Cheyenne barks just to hear herself and she continued for a little bit with the barking but all the time she was pushing in to get petted. It took Maia a little bit to realize that Schawn and Hailee were not aliens and if you warm up you get goodies. I told them to just ignore her and let her come to them on her own terms and sure enough pretty soon she was coming up poking Hailee’s hand so she would pet her. She even gave some big smiles!

Schawn likes the dogs but he is not in to all the training and dog show stuff. Although he will throw ducks for us and he has a pretty good arm. He goes with me to training on occasion but would much rather hang out with his older cousin and play video games…boys!

Today Hailee and I are going out to see Titan and do some training so my post is short but I hope to make up for it tomorrow with a whole lot of photos.

I am slowly catching up…well at least I am trying! I hate getting behind but I have had so much going on lately with my mom with her eye surgery and the kids coming time just gets away from me.

Well that’s it for now, so why don’t you hop in over to 2 Brown Dawgs grab the badge and join us for the hop.

Training

Didn’t get out to do training last weekend Sad smile But as you can see by my Wordless Wednesday Titan sure did, here are a few more photos my friend Michelle sent me…

I definitely had to share this one…you see the duck  in the right hand corner…you see where Titan is and where he is looking…yep flew right by his duck, but he circled around and picked it up. You can check her blog out at Dusty Rose Chesapeakes

Life

Well it has been a very long week! Over the last couple months I have been having trouble with my van, idling very rough to the point of stalling when I stop and the transmission has been giving me some grief too. Every time I take it to my mechanic for the stalling problem it doesn’t do the things it does to me and he can’t find a problem…go figure! Then a couple of weeks ago the transmission started to get worse, originally it was just the lower gears that were the problem, shifted very slow, then it wouldn’t shift into over drive. So my mechanic referred me to a trans guy to check it out, guess what…checks out perfect and he can’t find a problem…grrrrrr! Now I can’t complain to much, my van is a “94” with almost 300,000 miles on it. It just keeps me on edge when driving not knowing if I am going to have a problem Annoyed

House Guests

I’ve really enjoyed having Trail and Bitsy (Bitty Boo as I like to call her) here and Maia is loving someone to play with. They are both a hoot, Trail gets all excited and starts chortling and raising his front feet up, reminds me of a rearing horse. Bitty Boo is such a cuddler but she has her moments when she thinks she is big and bold by mouthing off, I just chuckle to myself. I see a lot of Riva in her! I am sure going to miss them when they have to go home but I do get to see them pretty regularly Open-mouthed smile

So that wraps up our Thursday…thanks to 2 Brown Dawgs for the hop, why don’t you grab her badge and join the fun!!
