Look at...

...all these snails.  Mommy couldn't believe her eyes when she saw so many of them gathered on one lamp post.  We wonder if they're attracted to the light.  Escargot, anyone?

Have you heard...

...the story of Lycka? It is an amazing story of a beloved Golden Retriever whose pawrents didn't stop fighting for their fur baby. We love hearing about the good things that humans are capable of. We hope you'll read Lycka's story and keep your paws crossed for him as he undergoes this life changing surgery.

Sierra's Scoop

Our pawrents sure did splurge on Black Friday. They bought us a new crate mat and a cute little round bed. Mommy told Daddy it was too small, but he said the price was too good to pass up. If you can't tell, I love it. I've been sleeping in it all weekend. Do you think it looks too snug? If it is we can always give it to Uncle Bey Bey.

Our Black Friday special

Today at work Daddy surprised us with a new crate pad. We've never had nice crate pad like this one before. It's furry, fuzzy, and oh so soft. Teddy Bear gave it his approval by sleeping in it almost all day. We love our Black Friday special. Thanks pawrents.

New Christmas lights

So we used to have some icicle lights like these but they were stolen out of our storage a few years ago. Last year, Auntie Kim gave us some of her extra lights to use but they were not the icicle lights that we loved the most. 
 Since Mommy has a job now,  we decided to splurge and buy the lights we missed so much. So Daddy loaded up the cart at Costco and grabbed a few boxes.  He was so excited to put up the lights.  Mommy said he was like a kid in a candy store.  We can't wait to see how they look all lit up.

Mommy and Daddy...

...went to dinner with their friends tonight. Afterwards they went to meet their fur babies. Loke, the Newfie was super excited to meet Mommy. This was the first time our pawrents had met a Newfie. Loke sure is beautiful. Rusty, the Lab wanted to play fetch the whole time Mommy and Daddy were there. We can't wait to meet Loke and Rusty. They already seem like too much fun.

Thanksgiving part two

Tonight Mommy made a wonderful dinner. Along with a delicious turkey, she made her legendary sweet potato casserole and green bean casserole. There was even a buttermilk apple pie for dessert but Mommy and Daddy were too stuffed to even think about taking one bite. We sure hope there will be dessert tomorrow.  We finished off the night by watching the National Dog Championship.  It sure was fun seeing so many furry friends.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

We hope everyone had a wonderful day watching the Parade and endless football games followed by lots of yummy food and fun family time.
Mommy's pumpkin pie always cracks in the middle.  This happens every single year.  Does this happen to your Mommies?
As we were driving home from Grandma and Grandpa's house we saw people waiting in line for Black Friday shopping.  WOW!  Do any of your pawrents pawticipate in the shopping festivities?

The pair of Pom poms

Today, we met two very cute Pomeranians at Daddy's work. They were driving down the street with their Daddy when they saw Me and Sierra standing in Daddy's shop so they stopped just to say hi. The pup on the right was the girl and she looked just like me, only smaller. That would make her "Mini Me"

Today we...

...harvested some limes. There were tons of them. Daddy is already thinking of the goodies Mommy will be making. First on the list is key lime pie. After that will be lime bars. What are some if your favorite lime desserts?

Our last day in Tahoe...

was pretty fun. We woke up early in hopes of playing in some freshly fallen snow. Since there was wasn't much near our cabin we went for a little hike to find some. We all love walking around in Lake Tahoe because there's always something pretty to look at. And wouldn't you know it...the snow started coming down heavily as we drove down the mountain. We'll keep our paws crossed that there will be a ton of snow for our next trip.

Having fun at Lake Tahoe

As you can see we didn't wake up to a winter wonderland. We did get go for a walk in between the rain. As soon as I found a nice patch of snow I totally rolled in it. Even though it was kind of dirty snow Mommy let me have my fun. We ran into a nice pup that was off leash near his house. There are always lots if nice pups in Tahoe. We took a ride to do some shopping this afternoon when we saw this pawsome rainbow. We have never seen both ends so clearly before so it was a real treat. Hope everyone's having a great weekend.

Where's the snow?

After another long drive we finally arrived at the cabin.  I couldn't believe my eyes when I jumped out of our truck.  All the snow from last weekend had melted.  To make things worse, it is still raining right now. My paws are crossed that when we wake up tomorrow morning there will be a fluffy surprise waiting for us.

Dirty Paws

So the other day I came home from work with extra dirty paws. Mommy didn't like that I got so dirty, so today, Daddy mopped the office floors and the concrete right where i lie in the shop. I hope I don't get to dirty tomorrow cause it's gonna be raining and wet paws do not mix with auto shop floors.

Sierra's Scoop

Hi there friends, it's Sierra here. Look what came with our Vitacost order. It was a free sample of a glucosamine tablet that looked a lot like a tiny Greenie. Thanks Vitacost, keep sending us free samples.

Did you know...

...that I'm not much of a snuggler? Our time with Mommy seems very limited these days. She leaves before we leave for work and she comes home after we do. Dinner time seems like the pawfect time to snuggle with Mommy. I get some quality Mommy time while waiting for some yummy pizza bones.

Week thirty eight in the garden

A while back, Daddy was thinking about how a California winter can be full of sunny days and perfect for growing food. So we planted our winter garden not knowing if it would even grow.

So when this weekend brought the first frost of the year we quickly threw up the plastic on our new home made green house.  We are hoping to grow lettuce, romaine, spinach, cabbage, radish, and bok choy into the new year. 
I had to take a peak this morning to make sure things were ok in there.

It was so sunny and warm inside when it was sunny and cold outside. That's what I call mission accomplished.

Second Fail of the weekend

Some tricks don't go so well, I really don't like things to be placed on my nose. Daddy had to stop the video because I was about to bite his hand. Does anybody have advice on how to learn this trick?

Snow trip FAIL!!!

Mommy took the day off today so she could spend most of the morning getting ready for our trip to Lake Tahoe. We were more than happy to have the day off from work too. Daddy went to work a half day without us. Fast forward a few hours to us pulling into the driveway of our cabin. Daddy noticed that the lights were on, panic set in, and the phones were pulled out to look at our cabin schedule. Mommy has been so busy with work that she got our weekends mixed up. We enjoyed our dinner al fresco in the pawesome frigid weather. It was 17 degrees tonight. We played in the first snow of the season before heading home. See you soon Lake Tahoe. We hope the snow is here to stay.

I feel like a...

...zoo animal whenever I sit in the crate. Today was a rainy day at work so Daddy blocked his office door with our crate because he didn't want us to get too dirty. Getting wet and dirty from the rain is so much fun. What do you think?

Sierra's Scoop

Hi everybody, Sierra here. I bet there isn't a single dog out there that doesn't love peanut butter. I know I do. So when Mommy offered me a piece of celery smeared with peanut butter, I knew I would love it. Has anybody else tried this crunchy little snack?

Monday, November 5, 2012

Don't you..

...just love this time of year? The brisk weather, the crunchy leaves, and the sweet aroma of baked goods. We enjoy being outside on cool autumn days when the breeze is flowing and the birds are singing. We wonder if they're as happy as we are about the season that's just around the corner. You know, the one where we see lots and lots of the white stuff? Boy oh boy...we can hardly wait!

Week thirty seven in the garden

This weekend Daddy wanted to remove all of the composted waste from our Aerobin 400.  It really wasn't ready since we didn't keep it moist enough.

So we emptied most of it into the garden cart.  Then we scooped up the rest back inside for another season of composting.

The next step will be to spread this stuff over the raised bed and then tilling it in. We ran out of time so we will finish this project another day. Two day weekends are never enough are they.

Did someone say...

...In -n- Out? Mommy went to visit Granda and Grandpa and Uncle Bey Bey after work today so she wasn't going to be home for dinner. Yes, we were all sad about it. The only good thing was that Daddy got to have his hamburger. We're so glad he likes to share.

Friday, November 2, 2012

Did Mommy...

...go to work for a VET? We can smell other furry friends on her almost every day. We're not sure how we feel about her seeing other pups and not being able to be at work with her. If other pups are allowed to visit Mommy at work we think we should go to work with Mommy every now and then.

Sierra being silly

I don't know what Sierra was thinking when she jumped into the washing machine today. We were all barking out loud cause it was so funny. At first we couldn't figure out why she got in there since we just had a bath. Now I think it must have reminded her of the nook at work she loves so much. Can anybody think of a great caption for this photo?
