Thursday Adventure

After dropping hubby off at work this morning Chase and I went on a little adventure. I knew it was going to be hot today probably the hottest day this summer, so I wanted to get our walk in before it got too bad. Hubby and I found a new park and took Chase already once. I can pass it on the way home … Read More Thursday Adventure

A little birdie 🐦…

We had a visitor to our chicken coop. We had a similar visitor last year as well. A little brown birdie built a nest in one of our highest nesting boxes. You could see her in there off and on and a couple eggs… She and her little babies are gone now so we moved her nest to the burn pile for the fall, … Read More A little birdie 🐦…

Sunny Day Walk

It was a beautiful morning for a walk. Baxter has made strides in his recovery and can walk a little further every few weeks. We have a routine now for his walk and he seems to love it. Chase loves this walk as well and enjoys all the bunny holes and other critter holes we come across. There is a family of deer we … Read More Sunny Day Walk

Open window

Since it’s been nice enough a few days a week here I’ve been trying to get the house aired out from the winter. In a couple of my windows if they are open you are sure to find this guy in them. Grayson loves the outside and we often have to watch for him or he will try to escape through a door were … Read More Open window

Spring walk

It’s been getting nice some days here and other days the wind and cold return. Yesterday it was nice enough to get the boys out for a short walk. Baxter is doing a little better and wants to be out more so we’re taking it slow, but so far so good. Chase is his usual happy wanting to go, go, go self. He found … Read More Spring walk

Old guy…

Our lab mix has been getting acupuncture for a few weeks now and has gotten well enough, along with finishing his meds, that the acupuncture is moved to every other week.  I would recommend trying acupuncture on your dog if he has any pain,  hip,  joint,  or spine issues. It really seems to help. It’s not necessarily a cure, but makes our dog more … Read More Old guy…

SPRING ‘S RIVER

It finally is starting to feel more like spring. Even though we like our winter walks when less people are out, we really enjoy spring ones where we can explore and see all the buds of spring. One place we like to hike is down by the river. Our Chase loves to walk in the river and go from rock to rock exploring. He … Read More SPRING ‘S RIVER

Finally a little spring…

It’s been a long winter for everyone I think. With snow places it’s never been, or not in a long time, more snow then other areas are used to… for us the wind the last couple years is getting worse and that on top of the snow and cold just makes it miserable. But there it hope on the horizon… At least for us … Read More Finally a little spring…

Trouble with age

The trouble with age is along with it, as we all know, comes more ailments. Our 12 yo lab mix is not doing well. A couple Wednesdays ago he stopped being able to get up and walk. He had been having hip arthritis issues and slips if he’s not careful. So off to the vet we went. Turns out he has a herniated disc … Read More Trouble with age

Baby its cold outside…

It snowed again this morning. When I got up it had already started. For our area we have had more snow, but in the last 5-10 years this is a lot in a row. Last week it snowed for 3-4 days in a row, but luckily this was a short lived storm and only lasted till lunch time. Supposed to have more later this … Read More Baby its cold outside…
