Playing Catch-up

We are playing catch-up with some fall photos today. Then we can show you all the snow we got this week!

Here I am sporting my "Support Breast Cancer Research" bandana.

Me and my best buddy Mort.

Morty is one cool dude.  If I push it too far he lets me know with a nip or a scratch and makes me yelp!
But that is my big clue to back off and I usually go and lay down a few feet away from him till he is ready to play again.  And play he will!  He likes to rub all over me and will throw himself at me in flying attack hugs.  He is a barrel of fun!

We have had many visits from our neighborhood moose.  I am not to pleased when they come into my yard but mama has taught me that they are God's creatures too and need to roam and forage for food.

They are very big.  Funny though how the cats are not afraid.  In fact, the neighbor lady in back of us said she saw our cat Mickie nose to nose with one of these big moose out in our backyard.  Oh how mama wishes she could have gotten a photo of that!

Well, off she goes.  See ya later!

And last but certainly not least, here is a shot of me visiting folks at the Cancer Infusion Center.  I enjoy my visits as much as the patients do.  We all get happy and I have a fun time.

We have gotten at least a foot of snow now so our next post we will have to throw you a virtual snowball!



  1. Oh Ryker, I bet you do a great job at the Cancer Center!
    Wow, a foot of snow already. I love snow when it first comes, but I get tired of it pretty quickly. But, like you, our dogs love to play in it, and it keeps them so clean:)

  2. A moose in your yard??? How cool is that! Although we'd most likely be very scared of such a thing!!

  3. Oh Ryker, you lucky dog, you get my Vickies favorite wildlife right in your own back yard. We are so jelouse.

    And yeah for the Cancer Center.....(Delta doesn't know what they are missin)

    We are going to send you an email next.


  4. whoops, we can't find your email address.

    Will you email My Vickie as soon as you can. It is kind of important.



  5. I'd have been begging to go out and tell that moose what's what! Snow? *shiver* I'm glad you got to enjoy it!

  6. Ryker you are awesome visiting the Cancer center....was that Bullwinkle?

  7. The moose looks huge, Ryker!

    You're so sweet and bring lots of smiles to the residents at the cancer center.

  8. How fun to have a visiting moose of your very own!

    I'm sure the patients love when you visit. Years ago Indy did pet therapy. It is such a rewarding way to volunteer!

  9. Ryker-
    We came over to check in on you. Heard you are having a hellava storm up north.
    Love your pictures. Those big moose have kind of small butts..heehee!
    Hope you are okay up there, but safe and warm.

  10. It's so sweet of you to go visiting the patients, and spreading the smiles. Thanks for sharing Mort and your moose friends!

  11. Wow! Ryker you have your own neighborhood moose?! Now that's pretty cool! It's great that you visit the folks at the cancer center - how happy you both look during your visit! What a great job you do! Can't wait for that virtual snowball! Enjoy the white stuff...we'll still be dreaming of it over here! Glad to see you are doing OK...we saw on the news the storm hit Anchorage & Nome in "epic" proportions...be warm & safe!

  12. Oh, my. I wonder what I'd do if I had a moose in my back yard? Maybe it's like those cows or horses I see every now and then....

    I think you are one great pooch to give breast cancer patients some lovin'! I bet you get some back!!

  13. Wow, the moose come visit in your backyard? That is really neat. I don't know what I would do if I saw a wild animal in my backyard.

    That sure is nice of you to visit the cancer center. Mom can't wait for Bokeh to get tested so we can start taking him places to visit.


Ryker is wiggling to hear your comments!
