We never forget


November 3, 1999 - September 2, 2011
This was one of Amber's overnight visits so we dressed Mandy up in a nightgown!

So hard to believe it's been six years since we lost our girl, Mandy!  She was a sweetheart...another rescue we adopted when she was about 18 months old.  Mandy went with me every Wednesday to watch Amber and Nick.  We had to leave early Wednesday mornings and it was the only time she would jump out of the bed when I got up.  Any other day, she would lay in bed if I got up first, but not on Wednesday!   We'll never forget.  This is a post I did last year.  What a doll!

Gigi's Gottcha Day!

Yep, today is two years since we adopted our little Gigi!!  She actually looks like a puppy here but the rescue figured she was about 2-3 years old.  So we figure she's around 5 - give or take!

And what she looks like today!  Well, her tongue isn't always out but you get the picture!

 You can read Gigi's adoption story here.  We just love our little girl and we're so grateful to Sandy and Glenn Veltman for allowing us to bring Gigi into our family!!!   These two pictures were taken when we picked Gigi up from Glenn and Sandy.  We loved her from the get go!


She certainly has been a really good dog once she learned she could actually walk on grass!  HA  I walked the streets in our subdivision many a night getting her to go potty before bed!  But she is such a quick study on learning other manners.  Just a doll!!!


Yes, you my little girl!!!  She is still a little dog aggressive if a dog barks or starts to lunge at her but we are making progress!!

And she loves her big sister, Kalee!!!

She has always made herself right at home from day one!


We just love our little girl and we are all so thankful to have each other!

Happy Birthday, Kalee!

Yep..our 'little' girl turns six years old today!!!


Hard to believe she has been with us since September 2011!  But her actual BD is July 2nd!  This was the picture we saw a day after Mandy passed and we just had to get Kalee!!!  You can read her first blog post here!


She was a doll and a real tiger during her puppy hood!




But we wouldn't trade her for anything!  She is my best friend and such a good dog...well, yes, she has her moments but it's just because she's so smart!  

Yep, she's come a long way....Happy Birthday,, Kalee!!!!

Sisters at play...and sleep!

Bob bought the girls a new bed and they sure are loving it!  The first night Gigi wouldn't let Kalee sleep in it!  Gigi didn't move for over 2 hours!!!

Then a day or so later,  Kalee found a good spot in the bed while Gigi was playing elsewhere!




Now they both sleep in it together!  OK, not all the time but they will cuddle together!


I'm going to go back to PetSmart and pick up a smaller one just like this one, which is 27" x 36".  The smaller one would be perfect for just one dog...when they don't want to share the big bed!

Halloween 2016

A beautiful night for Halloween!  It was in the 50's and so calm out!  Sure beats some of the past years where it was cold and raining!  Wasn't this the cutest decorated wagon!

The girls did great and stayed on their matts for the most part.  Gigi would let out a growl or bark now and then but actually did so good for her!  HA  Mandy used to love Halloween.  She loved seeing the kids....

Is she a cutie or what!

I bought this outfit to fit one of the dogs and guess who it fits the best!  Gigi!!  How adorable is this!






Well, maybe she doesn't think so but I can't stop laughing!!!
