Changing up the dog food

Made the decision this week to change Petey’s food.  He has been eating Natures Select brand.  It is a good dog food and they deliver to your home as part of the cost of the food.  However, Petey is no stranger to an upset tummy.  So, I decided to try Natura Pet brand food after reading about it in one of the blogs I follow, (  It has no artificial ingredients and is hypoallergenic.  I bought Innova senior dog food and began mixing it with his old food yesterday. 


Am curious….what do you feed your dog and why?

Spices are fascinating

Last night as Glen and I were cooking supper, I asked him to grab me some spices out of the spice cabinet.  He wasn’t alone in his endeavor.  Eva was totally fascinated!!


Eva:  Let me get the basil for you mom!


Invisible fencing

Last weekend we started training Petey with the invisible fencing at Glens house.  Glen put the collar on Petey and walked him around the perimeter to train Petey where his boundaries were and also so Glen could adjust the collar to the appropriate level.


Petey loving being leash free.


The collar softly beeps when the dog is at the boundary before it shocks.  Naturally, Petey learned the hard way about the beeps.  The second time he heard it he immediately turned and ran back for the house. 


Reprieve from the heat

Since it is cooler outside, I let Lilly do something that she begs for daily.  I let her sit in the bathroom window and enjoy the sights and smells of the great outdoors. 


Packed and ready to go

I’m not sure where Lilly is going, but she has packed her most prized toy.



It’s the Monday Blues

Lilly votes to stay in bed.


It’s Friday with a full moon

About a month ago I downloaded the Instagram app on my cell phone.  It is an app that lets you alter the pictures you take on your cell phone and then share them on facebook, twitter, etc.  It’s fun and it’s free.

This is a picture I took last spring in Kansas City while wandering around outside the Nelson Atkins Museum.  I used the instagram app to tweak the picture a bit….

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
