Big Feet

I have been trying to figure out how to show the size of Miss. Crickets feet.

At the vet last week she weighed in at a whopping 67.8#s and even the vet said she had some HUGE feet. Cricket is only 4 months and 3 weeks old.

While the twin granddaughters were here spending the night I had an idea.  A Foot comparison is the only true way to show off Cricket’s feet size.

This is Karina’s foot and Cricket’s foot side by side. Karina is 6 years old and wears a size 1 in kid’s shoes.

Cricket’s nickname is Stompy Stomp and I think this picture lets you see why she is called that. I wish I could add sound and then you all would really get the meaning of her nickname.

Up close and personal

Daisy loves to distract me when I have the camera.

She came up to me when I was sitting down outside and looked straight into my macro lens. I could not resist taking a picture of her but did not realize how good it would turn out.

Its moments like this that capture your heart and make you want to get your pet’s portraits done.

Daisy’s 7th Birthday

Miss. Daisy Mae is our boxer whos birthday is today she turns 7 years old. She still acts like a puppy.

I think she takes a few more naps these days but she’s always ready and willing to play fetch or go somewhere in the truck. She loves picking mulberries off the tree or the ground.

She has this cute moan when you’re not paying attention to her and as time goes on it gets louder and longer most people think that is hilarious.

Daisy has a lot of fun with her sisters Zoee and Cricket but she gets tired of being the babysitter lol.

Happy Birthday, Daisy we love you!

Sheltie Puppy Party

This is my sister Sheri’s and her husbands David two new Sheltie pups they are 4-month-old siblings.

The brown one Missy Hogan is the female and the black and grey one Turbo is the male he has one blue eye.

Trying to keep two very active pups still for pictures was quite the challenge but my sister and I were able to pull it off.

Next time we will try to add in the cat now that should be exciting.

Boxer dog friends

Daisy and Zoee are the best of friends.

They wrestle, play fetch together and they love tug of war. I am so grateful they have each other.

They are BOTH spoiled rotten. Most of the time when I order from Chewy they know the boxes. I think they smell them but anyway they normally get new balls, toys or chews. Well now when I get a box from Amazon there standing there like “what did you get me now” these are some crazy spoiled dogs.

Dogs need plenty of exercise and there is plenty of room to run and play here at our house. Its been so hot we try not to play fetch unless its early a.m. or late p.m. but sometimes Daisy insist on it.

Zoee had a visit a week ago to the vet shes having some enviromental allergies so we are bathing her in a special shampoo for that. In the country who knows what that could be.

Daisy loves her pool and Zoee loves the waterhose I guess that is never going to change. Zoee makes it really hard to water my plants.

The dogs have been on Iiams dog food for a good while. Our daughter was telling me what she feeds the Cane Corsos is the ” Diamond High Energy” it has 24% protein and 20% fat so its good for active dogs. You can get it at the feed stores. They also have a regular one for those not so high energy dogs.

They are in the process of trying this new food out they have had this bag about 1 week. They do not seem to be eating as much of it which tells me they must be getting fuller.

Cost wise the Iiams 33# bag was about $33.00 the Diamond is a 50# bag for $30.00 so its much cheaper and a better quality food. Hopefully it works out.  I wanted to pass this onto all my friends with several dogs.

Sometimes capturing these two on camera can be a challenge but I grabbed a few shots Thursday evening and Friday morning early.

The first picture they both have their eyes shut. Zoee can pull Daisy around when playing Tug of War I have not figured out how. The third picture Daisy was waiting for the ball to be thrown. Last picture Zoee was trying to figure out how to steal the chuck it thrower.

Last group picture

These Cane Corso puppies are 8 weeks old and going to their new homes this weekend.

Everytime I would get focused one pup would go overboard. I had the grandkids putting them back in the wagon and moving quickly so I could take a few pics.

Daisy turns 6 years old

On April 22, 2013, the most beautiful boxer was born.

Our Daisy girl is six years old and she still acts like a puppy on most days.

I never knew a dog could have so much personality.

She talks to us and can get quite sassy sometimes.

She loves to sleep at the foot of our bed covered up everywhere but her head. That does not mean that if she gets cold in the night she will not get between us lol.

When I am gone somewhere and get back home she expects something special & now she has taught Zoee this trick. I keep a bag of special treats for those occasions. They get dog biscuits on a daily basis so those do not count lol.

Daisy has brought so much joy to our lives I have no idea what we would have done without her. I am glad she and Zoee have each other because she’s a good sister mama & Zoee is a great companion for her.

I will try and get some more pics this week she was not being very cooperative yesterday.

This picture is her waiting for Zoee to come outside and join her. That anticipation look.

Happy Birthday, Daisy Girl! We Love you.

Dogs just wanna have fun

Our two boxers Daisy and Zoee both seem to love the water hose.

Zoee will not back off and scares me she’s going to choke on the water so she has to be monitored.

Daisy runs and gets it and then runs off.

They had a good time on Sunday once our Texas warm weather kicked back in.

This all started because I was trying to water plants and flowers. Zoee thinks that is her time and she got Daisy involved in her water hose game.

Dogs just wanna have fun & have a little playtime.
