Catch Up Saturday

Where did the week go? It wasn't extraordinarily busy, but it flew by. The weather has been nicer and we are optimistic we will see grass soon. The snow is almost all gone in the city but us mountain dwellers still have some. They are forecasting warm temperatures and rain the next few days, so that will hopefully wash the rest of it away. We won't talk about Tuesday's forecast!

The great thing about spring, is it makes for awesome smelling walks according to the pups. We have gotten to sniff fresh deer tracks and deer hair. We even saw a deer yesterday. The wild turkeys are back as well. We have mostly heard them, but did see one early in the week. Morning walks are now accompanied by the sound of birds and not just the crunch of snow. It is a nice time to live in the country.

My arm seems to be all better. I guess I just seriously bruised it. It never turned all the cool colours I had  hoped it would! Even with two good arms, I am continuing to use the couplers for the walks. Overall we have less pulling this way.

Now to catch up on all your comments:

Monday's post:
While I would never fence the entire 3 acres (with the bush and the hill it would be too big of a job), I would really love to have a big fenced area for the pups to run and play. This is not something the Man wants, so I don't know if it will happen. As for her latest escape, now that time has passed, I can truly appreciate that I did this to myself and realize how ridiculous it must have looked!

A Busy Weekend:
Hailey tries really hard not to jump up on her favourite guests, but can't help herself. If they manage to get past the front door without a jump, she gets them later. It is like she remembers, I haven't jumped yet. While this is an undesirable behaviour, it is better than angel Gemi's jumping and biting the people she loved!

He did it to himself:
Chuck 2 is Phod's favourite toy in the whole wide world. When given the choice between Chuck and his new frisbee, Chuck wins every time. Over the winter he has been chewing that big hole in it. I throw it, he runs into the deep snow, chews it a bit and brings it back. Sometimes when he picks it up, it flops over his face like that picture. What you can't really see is that he is holding it in his mouth! Man happened to have his phone ready when it happened one day, to capture it. It always makes us laugh! Phod doesn't care if we are laughing as long as when he puts it down we throw it.

Hailey's Big Adventure:
I am very proud of Hailey for her behaviour during her big adventure. Our first dog, Angel Loki, loved the vet, which spoiled us for the dogs who followed. I think as Hailey remembers seeing the vet at social occasions last year it helped her during the exam part. That or she was just so glad to get away from the Reiki lady . . . . I can't believe this lady either and I think if I thought she was a true danger I would have said something or moved.

Brotherly Love:
They melt my heart when they are so lovely. Yes, I was watching the food network. It is currently my favourite channel, which is funny since I don't cook.

Have a great weekend!


  1. How about one of those invisible fences....the only thing I don't like about them is they have to wear those collars that give them a zing if they get to close to the line. I know fences can sort of ruin the view....but having a safe place to let the doggies run would be worth it and just letting be able to lay out in the sun for a few ours would be so nice. We alternate between the food channel and hgtv here.....I am sure watching all that food makes me put on weight - so then I go and watch hawaii life to remind me not to give into yummies if I ever want to be a beach bunny. Of coarse I am way to old to ever be a beach bunny and the boys would hate the warm weather all the time - but it is nice to dream :)

  2. It's funny how sometimes you don't realize how busy the week has been until you have the chance to review it!

  3. I loved the video of Baggy and Nin. Cats are totally different than dogs, they do all in such a relaxing way. Maybe that's the reason why we love cats . Have a great saturday!

  4. I am glad your arm is feeling better!!! I would love a fence as well. I am hoping for this year, but we shall see...

    Best wishes Molly

  6. I am glad your arm is all better. Holy dogs there is a lot that goes on in one week. My Mommy loves loves loves Food Network, she watches it all the time. Have a nice weekend.

  7. Our Mr. doesn't want to fence the backyard either, must be a guy thing. We do all need the exercise, including him, so there are a lot of hikes planned. :)

  8. Our favorite post was the Brotherly Love one... Just sayin!!!

  9. Great week. Glad the shoulder is getting better. SHE doesn't cook either (much) but likes the cooking shows. (Not those competition things, just the cooking from around the world shows).

    We're all fenced in.

    XXXOOO Bella & Roxy

  10. Fences... I think I would like a fenced in yard if it kept those I didn't want in, out but didn't fence ME in. Guess that's askin' for the impossible, huh? Probably is.


  11. Glad to hear your arm is feeling better. We are so glad our snow is all gone and the ground was finally dry enough that we were able to play together outside today (in our wonderful fenced yard...we highly recommend it).

  12. It always seems like there aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done and the days fly by, so we totally understand about your week flying by! It is nice here...the sun is out and the grass is starting to turn green! Yay! We get to play outside in our fenced in yard all day! We have never had a yard that's not fenced so we don't know what that would be like!

  13. We're glad your arm is on the up and up! My peep loves the food channel, too. I wish she would turn on Animal Planet...way more interesting!

  14. A do so enjoy round up posts - thanks for sharing!!
