Merry Christmas 2013

Here is this year's handmade Christmas card from my sister.
This year she made me a pop-up card!

They're hard to make! I tried one once!

The Doggie's Christmas

Last evening on Christmas eve, I gave the dogs their presents.

This is probably the first time Dexter ever got a Christmas toy.
It's a "Hurl-A-Squirrel" and he loves it!!  He opened it all himself.


Now, Monk, on the other hand, doesn't open gifts or for that matter, doesn't even play with toys.
He's old.
He's 10 years old now.
I wonder if he played when he was a pup?

How about it?  Does he look pleased??

Merry Christmas everyone and have a blessed New Year.

Christmas Tea

I had this book for a number of years and always take it out and read the little story at this time of year.  
Since I'm older now, I guess I can relate a little better!!
I have tea time everyday that I'm home around 3 or 4pm.

Dexter came to tea.  But I think he's more interested in the cookies!

Merry Christmas

A Snowy Winter's Day

They predicted a snowstorm and it started to snow right on time!
It's beautiful but does keep you in as the roads are said to be bad.
Soooo, I'll try and get some things done around here.

I went out to check the chickens and hopefully get an egg or two.

There are two but Martha is sitting so maybe I'll get another one.
I've been getting a couple eggs every other day so far this winter.
No more 5 eggs a day till Spring!

Pepsi is sitting under the heat lamp....mamma cat is out stalking something probably.

Dexter would like to get into the garage to chase the cat!!

The girls seems fine with this temp in the 30's.  They stayed in the coop when it was single digits.

Bruce plowed my driveway already by 1pm!

Roads don't look good and now it's snowing even harder.

Monk loves this kind of weather.

Dexter . . . not so much!

Stay warm!


Merry Christmas To Me

I got Dexter's adoption papers in the mail a couple days ago.
So he is officially home.
Merry Christmas to both of us!!!

He got another new room to look around.

And he found another box of toys!

Life is sweet Dexter.

Exercising Dexter

Today it was so cold and snowy but going to be even colder tomorrow so I took Dexter to the barn to have a good run in the arena.
I don't think I can tire this dog out!!!

Of course running at full tilt in the deep arena sand gets Dexter pretty dirty on his undercarriage!!
So it's home to the bath tub!
Not his favorite thing but he does OK.

Well I also have to tell you that Dexter's first obedience class was last evening.
He was not obedient!
There were 2 small dogs and a larger dog.
He didn't mind the big dog but barked and whined at the little ones.  Of course the one little poodle was yipping the whole time too!
I couldn't concentrate on what I was supposed to be doing!
I'm sure Dexter felt my anxiety too!
I hope we do better next week!!!
We have homework.  I'm supposed to be working with him paying attention to me and using the clicker.  I definitely was not as interesting to him as the little dogs this week!!
