Play Dates

Mama arranged for some play dates with our first foster dog Bingo (renamed Riley).  Riley has a brother named Adien and we met up at a local ball field to play.

Riley remembered us and was full of kisses.  Adien was full of play, he is a real herding dog and ankle biter!

We had so much fun, we literally ran around for two hours.

This all took place in early August.  It was so great that we decided to do this on a regular basis.  Unfortunately for me these two are snowbirds and travel down south come winter.  So we met up again a week ago for another day of fun that will have to last us until May.

 We went to a different ball field this time.  Adien needs to be contained, he doesn't have good recall like me.  But look how handsome he is!  He can play like a crazy dog!!!

Bingo, I mean Riley, is looking really good too.  He has lost that extra weight and is coat is much nicer now.  He seems very happy with his new home and that makes us very happy too!  Mama says we will do at least one foster a summer when she has time off from work.

Riley loves having a big brother and we think Adien loves it too.

So we ran, and ran, and ran some more.  See that herding action going on?  I don't mind playing the part of the sheep.

OK guys, huddle time.  Riley, you go left...  I'll go long...

Whoooo hooooo!

Half-time, time to rest-up...

for some bitey face!  Adien is pretty darn good at this too.  I have to stay at the top of my game.

Whoa...take it easy on me little dude!

So, as you can we we had an awesome time together and the Mamas enjoyed talkin' about us while we played.

I am looking forward to seeing them again in the Spring.  Bye guys, have a great time down south.  Be healthy and happy!

PS...we had our first snow this Friday night.  Fall is over and our Winter has begun. So goes life in Alaska.

So we have had storm after storm with high winds, rain and flooding.  So what does my crazy mama do?

   She goes out and buys a new car!

It's a Nissan Juke and I love it!   We are going to have a lot of fun with this car,  I can just feel it!

 Mama bought me a new harness so I can be her co-pilot.  It is coming in the mail.


The weather has improved a bit since she bought it so maybe it wasn't such a strange reaction after all.  She does have an Anniversary and a Birthday coming up...but who knows what is going through her mind.

                                                If only she could talk dog.

Mother Nature Rages

Thousands of homes and businesses in Anchorage and Mat-Su remained without power this afternoon as residents recovered from an overnight storm that blasted the region with high winds, uprooted trees and downed electrical lines. No serious injuries had been reported as of noon.

Well, we did not loose power and no trees fell on our house. We did however lose a beloved tree. 
 It was a 12 year old MayDay tree that mama planted outside Grandma's window.  This makes mama sad. 
We tried to save it but the damage was too much.
Don't be sad mama.  I'll help you plant a new one in the spring.

As we took a walk we realized that things could have been much worse...
Trees were down everywhere we turned!

I like trees, this is what I think about the whole thing!  Poop on this devastation!!!

I feel bad for these people...

The forest is like a fun house today!  Everything is Topsy tervey!
Wow, even our flowers took a beating.

If you want to see more here is the url to the Anchorage Daily News photos

We are very thankful that no one was hurt during this storm.  

We had to read the news online today.
The storm-caused power outage has delayed the printing and distribution of Wednesday's Anchorage Daily News.
Wednesday newspapers will be delivered to home subscribers on Thursday, along with the Thursday edition.
Power at the newspaper plant was out from late Tuesday until early Wednesday morning, preventing the press from running.

Kinda makes one think a bit.
