eyes open and almost gone

The puppies eyes are open, and they are growing fast...  2 weeks old already!


Foenix Rose



Lots of tongue action going on this week!

What is almost gone?  The snow!
   Here is the last little patch, it will be gone tomorrow.

More flowers are blooming and the grass is turning green.

“Lenten Rose” (Helleborus orientalis) is actually a member of the buttercup family. Its flowers bloom during the Christian celebration of Lent, hence the name. Originally from the Caucasus Mountains, helleborus has long been a favorite in the U.S. This perennial, early-blooming wonder is a joyful winter buster.

And what am I up too?

Duh!  Need you ask!

A dog needs a good drink after a hard round of Frisbee.

Less than two weeks of school left and mama will be off work.  It's gonna be a great summer!



  1. Mom says she has twenty one days left, not that she's counting! BOL! Those puppies are adorable! Are you sure you don't want a little brother or sister?


  2. I love your drinking fountain and the picture of you with the frizbee is GREAT..... What kind of flower is that?

    1. That is a Hellebore or lenton rose, not really a rose. It is a early bloomer and oh so pretty. Mama made that fountain out of some long bamboo stakes she got at the garden store.


  3. Love it! TJ looks like he is cracking up

  4. Wow, I can't believe all that snow has gone. Must be those very long days and all that sunshine you are getting:)
    Those are some cute puppies!

    1. Your right, the days are getting much longer, not very hot but I hope that will change soon.

  5. wow ryker finally you have some grass to run on i was starting you worry you had to live in snow all year round, just different levels of deepness for difference :)

    that is one very special drink bowl, stormy would be so jealous if he saw that, he just gets to drink out the pond sometimes if i havent brought his bowl outside, but a water fountain wow that is special xxx

  6. Those puppies are so adorable! They made me think of those early stages of Eva.

    I love your drinking fountain, the bamboo looks so Japanese!

    I can't believe that summer is around soon!

  7. The puppies are cuteness overload - love the tongue action :)

  8. Those pups are just too cute & I'm glad you're having a great time with your frisbee. Once mom's home for vacation you'll be all set!

  18. I bet you are soooo glad the snow is gone and summer is around the corner. The puppies are adorable! I bet you are so happy to be able to 'watch' them grow.

    That's a really pretty hellebore. I have several, but not that variety.

  19. We have missed you Ryker! It's been so long since we visited, we were afraid maybe you wouldn't be here anymore but then I saw all these adorable puppies and thought- wait, maybe Ryker is a daddy but must not be, they sure are awful cute though! And you are handsome as always! :)
