We are delighted to have Birdie Ingram visit us occasionally. She is an adorable dog who is lucky to have Claudia and Wallypop as her full-time parents. Neil and I agreed to dogsit Birdie when Claudia and Wally adopted this sweet dog. Birdie spends time with all the counselors at Camp Higgins. Staffer Chic is supervising her afternoon nap.Our resident dietitian Betty makes sure Birdie is adequately nourished. Betty makes sure all the campers eat well, even if she has to hand feed them.
Of course, no camp is complete without arts and crafts. She is exhausted after completing one of her favorite activities…quilting!She loves “Rip the toy to shreds.” Birdie always scores bonus points for removal of squeaker.This is what her buddy, camp resident Eagle, looked like 2 minutes after Birdie left to return home with Claudia and Wally. (He’s resting up for her next visit.)
I started a new workout program called T25. Its 6 nights a week for 25 minutes each and it’s at home. It works out great when you have a full-time job and kid (especially when your husband is in the UK!) but Chet likes to help me work out and sometimes that can be a little tricky. By the looks of this video I’m not the only one with an issue! 🙂
I haven’t shared any funny dog pins lately…
These dogs are imitating the baby!
This one just CRACKS me up!!!
Eagle fell into the pool the other day. He SANK to the bottom. He needed one of these flotation devices. Perhaps a little bigger.
Birdie visited us last week. This was a discussion between Birdie and Eagle.
Just because this is sooo silly…
Do you remember the year we had so much snow in Barto that we had to do this for Chip and Putt?
My friend who wants to remain anonymous (Janice) had the sweetest Maltese, Cody.
Janice My friend had the pleasure of spoiling Cody for many years. Cody is now in doggy heaven. She adopted a beautiful Havanese named Buster. Then decided Buster should have a companion. She missed Cody’s cute little black button nose surrounded by shiny white fur, so she adopted Harley, a shitzu. (Both dogs were adopted though rescue organizations.)
Aren’t they adorable???? I admire her for adopting not one, but two dogs. Buster,the Havanese, is three. He adjusted well, then helped Janice pick Harley. Harley is about five years old. She says both are such sweet, cuddly dogs. Her family has already fallen in love with both.
By now you are probably asking why she wants to remain anonymous, and why the title of this entry is Chester Junior. One day Janice and her pack set off to join a friend and her dog for a walk. The friend has a Rhodesian Ridgeback, A very large dog. Do you want to guess where this story is going? Yep, sweet, adorable 10 pound Harley turned into Cujo and tried to eat the big dog. It seems that, like Chester, Harley has leash aggression. He also has recovered from having his jaw broken by a large dog he tried to attack. Remember how surprised we were when we discovered that our beloved Chester, the perfect dog inside, became a raging lunatic outside around dogs.
Occasionally this bad behavior does result in some humor. I still chuckle every time I think about talking to you on the phone while you were walking Chet when he launched himself at a PLASTIC golden Golden retriever. I treasure the memory of the look on 2-Putts face when Chester attacked the fur ball that is 2-Putts tail and took it for a ride around the backyard. While I’m telling Chet stories, he continued his golden retriever aggression by attacking sweet, loveable Chip when he visited for Christmas. Chip grabbed his mouth, Chester lost a tooth. Blood everywhere. I felt so awful, but that was when I knew that Mike would make a great father. He separated the dogs, picked up Chester, cleaned him up without any hesitation. After joking about it happening again the following Christmas we were all much more relaxed when Chester lost another tooth to Chip.
Well my Anonymous Friend, I admire you for giving these precious dogs a home.
Wow . . . is pretty much all I can say. This is really a fad? (It is, according to this article)
Congrats on the quilts ladies (and mom)!
Yes, that’s another quilting acronym. In an effort to broaden my pinterest perspectives, I follow a board that has dogs in funny situations and Boston Terriers. I hope you enjoy …(I always think of Shannon, Sebastian, Harper and Miller when I see Pugs.) Are you laughing yet? If only we had facebook when you were dressing Chip,Putt and Butterscotch in clothes. When you advance from walking dogs…. Some creatures know how to relax. Can you imagine this many Eagles in one house??????
This is a bed and breakfast.
No, not the dog that won the Westminster Dog Show. How does someone pick the best in show for that competition? Debbie, from my Tuesday sewing group made this adorable baby quilt for a co-worker. This is a “before quilting” picture.
Here it is after Debbie did some fun quilting, including dog bones in the borders.As you know, I love hearts, so I think the faces are too, too cute.
I have resumed working on my Dear Jane quilt. I was sewing the rows together one evening, I went past Eagle’s bedtime. He can be very persistent. Happy Valentines Day!!!!!
