The twin girls wanted a puppy they could hold. Something small and cuddly.
After researching breeds our daughter Jeanelle and her husband David decided on a miniature long hair dapple dachshund.
She does not officially have a name yet but we have heard the names Lady, Little Lady and Pebbles from the kids.
The first picture she is in a child’s size fedora hat I figured this would show her size pretty good.
Monday was her first official photo session with me and needless to say she was quite easy to photograph.
Daisy Mae would like to wish everyone a Happy Monday have a good day and a great week.
I took this picture of her after she had been playing fetch yesterday and decided to take a break.
She had her checkup a few weeks ago and weighed in at 67.1 #’s she is in perfect health and has really good teeth. This is probably due to the fact she eats about 5 dog biscuits a day.
Daisy still loves to play fetch several times a day and cools off in her pool she is very active at 5 – years old. She likes to be wherever I am even if I am only going outside for a few minutes she wants to go to.
Dogs bring out the best in all of us and they can always put a smile on your face when they try talking to you.
Stripey was just sitting there all prim and proper so I could not resist taking a picture of him.
This was taken using my Canon 400mm lens and it really turned out quite clear and he had no idea I was taking his picture.
Daisy wanted to pop in and say HEY.
She has had a tough time playing fetch this summer in the heat and we always play in the early morning or later afternoon.
Since it has cooled off some she wants to play all day long.
When she gets hot she goes and gets in her pool to cool off. If she needs a break she will go fetch her ball and then lay under a tree across the backyard. When she is ready to go again she comes running.
She is always cooperative for a picture even if she wants to play fetch at the time.
I love my Daisy girl.
Around April 2015 a mama cat deserted her kittens that were about 6-8 weeks old and I tried to save them all but I couldn’t.
Stripey and Harry were the two survivors.
They were probably not quite a year old yet and something was wrong with Stripey. I took him to the vet to find out his jaw was broken he had been kicked in the jaw by someone. He had surgery his jaw had to be wired shut for many weeks. Needless to say, this was quite and expensive visit. The vet neutered him for free at the same time.
I later had Harry neutered so all our cats are fixed. We do our part to help the overpopulation of cats in the world.
We were not in the market any more cats at the time but needless to say, we inherited these two. They stay outdoors unless the weather’s bad then I bring them in the house.
This the life of these two cats lots of lounging around following me around in the pasture because they are quite snoopy. They eat two times a day and stalk lizards,
small snakes, birds, and anything that crosses their path.
Mr. Bird is good friends with them and they are always getting into mischief.
The cat’s life is a rough life. The first picture is Stripey and the second one is Harry.
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.
