The Ball

Some days life is ALL about “The Ball”

Losing a dog

Mommy doesn’t like to think about this AT ALL. She knows I’m getting older, and my days are getting shorter. I sleep much more, and sometimes I get very short of breath.  I know Benj Benj Benj Benj Benj will help her.. but we still don’t want to think about it, because it makes us…

Leaving the East (Left) Coast

We finally moved away from the east left coast and took another very very long drive. When I was little I didn’t like long drives.  Mommy said I got “car sick”.  If she means the car made me feeling like throwing up, that was right.  Going back west though I didn’t get so sick. It…

A Dog’s life…

… is pretty simple. We rise and eat, and play and sleep. We guard and chase, walk and explore. .. Then we do it all over again.  Chewing bone-bones and chasing bear-bears are also fun past-times. Mommy says we live in a world that is sometimes far away from hers, where she has to deal…

Spring is here

Mom took this picture of our little magnolia tree. She is always first to bloom, and is the most delicate of the blooms.  We are so happy to see the blossoms! Benji is also happy to see Mr. Squirrel every day (every chance he gets). We’ll talk about him a little more on another day….

Happy Easter

Mom says sometimes it’s more important to talk about others than me…. She says today is about JESUS! She says he loved people so much, he died for us, and rose again. The cross seemed like a terrible defeat, but on Sunday morning the tomb was empty and victory was complete!

The BIG city

When we left the – LEFT coast, and moved to the east left coast (as mommy calls it), we seemed to move a lot.  Mommy doesn’t have a lot of pictures from then…. For a while we lived by a very big river, and a very big city.  Mom would take me for walks by…

House cleaning day

Today is house-cleaning day. It’s a hoot. Mom thinks the house should be clean!  She likes the bathrooms clean and the floors mopped and no clutter.  Benji and I don’t really understand the concept of house cleaning. We like to play. We love our toys! The more the merrier. We love it when they come…

My Daddy was a Champion

How many dogs have gorgeous blue eyes and rich black curly fur? I posed for this picture when I was a puppy so mommy could show me off. Mom says my daddy was a champion show dog and that I’m a pure bred. She says my dad and mom were probably as amazing as hers……
