Daisy turns 5 years old

Today is Miss. Daisy’s 5th. birthday.

She got 2 new plastic pools, 3 new balls, a no pull harness so I can walk her easier at the park, breakfast and dinner scraps and plenty of dog treats. We played fetch atleast 4 times today.

Last night she got a 4-pound peanut butter jug that was down to almost nothing but she loves getting the jugs lol.

We did two outdoor photo sessions today one in the early afternoon and one a little bit ago.

Daisy’s favorite game is playing fetch multiple times a day. She gets hot then she dunks in her pool and then she is ready to go again. Notice the ball is in the pool.

She may be a year older and she has slowed down since she was a puppy but she is still very active for a 63# boxer that is 5 years old.

Happy Birthday, Daisy we love you.

Early morning outing

Mr. Bird wanted out early on this day so I let him out when I went out to get some sunrise pictures.

As I looked back I saw him posing near some dead grass and I thought ” I need to take his picture”. He was staring off into the distance at something but I never could figure out what it was.

Mr. Bird lives in the house but every morning he goes outside.

He likes the springtime the best those days he will spend the most time outdoors.

Since our weather has been cooler he goes out and comes back in within one hour.

He does not like the rain, wind or heat much less the cold lol. When he is ready to come back in he sits in front of the french doors so I will see him staring in at me.

He just wants the best of both worlds indoors and outdoors.

The spirit of Shadow

 

This dog along with another was apparently dumped near our daughter’s house.

Our daughter put their pictures on next door a neighborhood site but no one came forward. The male was a mixed breed and the female was a lab.

She loves to swim and our daughter has a pond. This dog swims underwater and is under for like 15 seconds and you can not see her at all and then she pops back up again and starts dog paddling.

After a couple of days, she was able to catch the female and bring her to our house since we have a fenced-in back yard.

I thought that Andrew named her Shadow but out daughter said no that was his chicken. I guess I called her Shadow lol.

Daisy was so excited to have a friend to play fetch with now she is quite sad because Shadow left last night.

We figure this lab is about 1 – 1 1/2 years old and she appears to be in good health. She has been trained she does not bark but most hunting dogs do not bark, she sits, stays, lays down and plays fetch bringing a ball, stick, or even a log she drops them at your feet.

Daisy had an old collar that fit her perfectly.

I can not stress enough to everyone with pets to get them a tag with their name and your phone number on it that attaches to their collars. That way if your pet is lost you can be reunited.

As far as people dumping animals it makes me sick because animals depend on us for food, water, and shelter. When you dump them they have to survive on their own or by the kindness of strangers.

This dog stole our daughter’s heart and then she stole mine. We both wanted to keep her. The only thing stopping me from keeping her was she would not stay out of the koi pond.

Our oldest daughter was coming into town and had actually found her a home. She was going to be taking her back to Dallas. That was until she met her and fell in love with her just like we did so now Shadow will be living with her.

Of course, I had to do a photo session.

One look in a dog’s eyes and you can see through to its soul and connect with it.

Shadow’s spirit and personality are great and when everyone is falling in love with the same dog you know that dog has something special to offer.

Mr. Bird in a tree

Mr. Bird the cat was outside and Miss. Daisy did not like the direction he was headed so she proceeded to round him up.

He ran up into the tree and sat there like he owned it. I think he was thinking ” Ha Ha you can’t climb a tree”.

They play like this all the time because they are best friends. He stayed in that tree for over and hour sitting in that same position. We came in the house because of it being so hot outside.

Happy 4th- Birthday Daisy Dog

On April 22, my Daisy girl turns four years old.

It seems like yesterday I had this wild puppy who was so hyperactive you could not wear her out.

She turned into this beautiful boxer who loves to go places in the truck and pose for pictures. Every day she has to play fetch it is her game of choice and she loves to cool off in her pool when she gets too hot.

She is very good with our grandchildren and loves it when they give her some of their food or play with her.

Daisy did not like the dark sunglasses but I managed to get a few pics before she tried to get them off.

The sun visor she did not mind and I figured she would hate it.

She even winks sometimes during our sessions but when she gets bored she just closes her eyes to ignore me.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures.
