Come Play:

With the recent destruction of all stuffie animals, poor LW, has but one toy, and, sadly, no one wanted to play.

First Snowfall!

With all of the excitement of a child on Christmas morning, LW runs out to play in her first snowfall.

Murf, frustrated by the snow falling in this ears, takes a break from the game of chase. This allows LW to further investigate this new ground cover. Ummm and tasty too!

A Few More Flakes:

As the flakes began to fall, LW, full of youthful innocence, is bewildered by the newness of this mysterious white rain. She looks to the heavens for answers. Orlando, older and wiser, decides to just shake it off.


There is nothing like the comfort of your favorite blanket and the peace and quite of your own place to help renew your spirit.

Snow Play:

I have to admit, I am jealous of the snow everyone is having. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a huge fan of winter but I don’t mind the colder darker months. It’s that time of year when you can come home from a long day out, put your jammies on, before dinner, and no one thinks it strange. You can have dinner by candle light and then lay around on the couch watching TV or reading a good book. There’s no pressure of having to enjoy the daylight. And besides, if it’s going to be cold, we might as well have a snow storm or two. As I take my daily review of my favorite blogs, I have been seeing wonderful photos of all the puppies romping and rolling in the snow. Some folks have even posted great videos. Here the pups are wearing such big smiles as they dig and snort about in this new, wet, white, cold ground cover. Even some of the puppies whom reside in the warmer parts of CA have been seen posed in the snow covered mountains tops.
I have witnessed the first snow play with other puppies and have treasured it almost as much as the memory of my sons’ first steps. So, you can imagine my delight when the weather forecast was for a cold and snowy day. And with any luck we would get enough of this wondrous white powder that school would be cancelled or at least there would be a delayed start to the day.
Well, it’s my turn to post a photo of LW enjoying the Jersey shore’s snowfall.

The Wonders of a little TLC:

Our dear friends, neighbors, fellow puppy raisers, both of whom are in their 80s have come to find that a rambunctious adolescent puppy can be a bit tough on newly replaced knee joints. And after 20 years of raising puppies, with heavy hearts they have decide to “take a break” for awhile. They in turn have become the wonderful, spoil her rotten–send her home, grandparents to our LW.

On occasion young puppies, for varied reasons, are not quite ready to enter into a full time puppy raising family. They need just a little extra TLC.

Solution; our retired puppy raising friends are now the proud caretakers of this not quite ready to be placed “S” litter shepherd puppy.

He is adorable and I am sure, that in their loving care, he will be, in no time at all, ready to take on all the exploration these dog guides in training need. But for now he will rest peacefully in their loving arms.

Easily Entertained:

Her “OO” (cookie) accidentally got knocked under the stove. I wanted to retrieve it for her but I was being entertained. She contorted herself into unimaginable positions.
