Puppy Update March 25

The puppies are just over 3 months old now. These last two weeks have made a big difference – I’m able to sleep through the night again! As for house training, we’ve had a couple of different stretches of 2-3 days without any accidents in the house. Today was not a good day…probably because it […]

Puppy Update March 9

The puppies are 11 weeks old now. They’ve lost their “puppy pot bellies” & are looking much sleeker. The first week was much like having a newborn again…the puppies weren’t really old enough to be sleeping through the night & needed to be taken out to go potty several times during the night. I slept […]

Dogs, dogs, dogs

It is with mixed emotions that I write this blog post. Sadly, on January 11, 2014, Shiner passed away. Without going into a lot of detail, he had a large mass in his abdomen that was about the size of a basketball. Shiner’s passing left Jackie without her lifelong companion. We got Jackie when she […]

New member of the family

357 vs. Timber Rattlesnake

CAUTION! GROSS IMAGES & VIDEO BELOW We had quite an adventure last night in our backyard. Shiner cornered a Timber Rattlesnake and the girls (neighbor included) saw it and came running to the front yard to tell the grown-ups.  JR went out back and shot it then chopped its head off.  Here are some pics […]

September 6th Catching Up

Spring Break is Over

Well, Spring Break is over, and things are on their way back to normal here in the house.  JR is sleeping (worked last night), Brianna is at school, Shiner is napping behind the couch, and Delaney is trying her best to build something to climb up to get Brianna’s Nintendo DS off the mantel.  She […]
