Sigh, grumble, and a little whine

Dear Blogger - don't you know I am a senior doggie who is set in my ways - I don't take well to change and now you have gone and redone the side menu making it harder to find things. Oh SURE - I will get use to it in time but  I liked it when my buddies blogs just appeared on the main screen, I liked when comments were easy to find and I LIKED the old setup. Grumble grumble now I have to go hunting for everything - sigh - give an old doggie a break!

Happy Thanksgiving

You know we don't really do the whole thanksgiving thing (or Christmas) at our house - Mom says when you don't have family or kids around there just isn't much point to it. So for us it is just another day BUT we do give thanks every single day when we get to go to MY beach or one of MY parks. Today especially we gave thanks for a walk at MY Jacksonville Cowspotdog Arboretum Gardens and the Little Ravine Loop we went on. It was amazing to see all the big trees that had been blown over in that last big storm and to see how high the creek that runs through the ravine had flooded up to. The pics below show us in front of one the big trees and blew over and then you can see the whole tree and the other on is of us in front of these weird tree roots and then showing a better look at them - why would a tree grow like?

Anyhoo - we sure do wish everyone a wonderful thanksgiving and we hope you all get to spend time with your family and friends and enjoy the get together.

Sunrise/Sunset Sunday

Mom has a new walking place - she passes by this park and lake every morning and loves to see the sunrise over the water. Some mornings the colors are just amazing and NO we don't get to go which is so unfair. Mom has to walk down a very busy road and under a major highway bypass before she reaches the quiet of the park and she says the traffic would 'freak' us out - personally we don't believe it but some things you jut can't argue with Mom's about! Here are some of the best pics from this past week - why don't you join us next week for Sunrise or Sunset Sunday and share your beautiful pictures too :) Remember you can click on the photo's to see them bigger.

Sitting on Saturday

We are spending a lot of time sitting on MY new deck - Mom says she had forgotten how much I loved it - when we lived in Arkansas we had a big deck and I would spend hours out there and that is what I am doing now. Our weather is finally cooling down a little (although today is a bright sunny 80 degrees with amazing clear blue skies) - in the mornings though it is getting down to the low 40's and that is totally perfect deck sitting weather.

Sticks !

There was something strange at MY beach this morning - a whole bunch of sticks and branches had been poked into the ground - I am thinking someone knew I would be there today and they built ME my own special fort - what do you think?

The Smell oF the Salt Air

Mom said she needed to go de-stress and there is nothing better than a walk on the beach and breathing in the fresh salt air to do that - so off we went. We are still surprised every time we go to see how much MY beach has changed since the hurricane - the sand seems to be much finer and there is a lot more of it, the sand dunes and all the pretty grasses that grew on them have gone and the actual shape of the beach has changed - there is also a lot more drift wood on my beach now. We will eventually get use to the new look and eventually it will be more like we remember but until then - it gives us a lot of new places to explore.

Frisbee Golf

Mom has been so busy unpacking and getting things sorted out in our new house we have hardly had any time to go and do MY Bark Ranger  Duties but today I put my paws down and said MOM WE HAVE TO GO - so we did. We went to check out MY Ed Austin Cowspotdog Park. This is a nice little park with a great walking track but it does tend to be very busy as they have a Frisbee Golf there and that seems to be VERY popular amongst the locals. Unfortunately their course tends to crisscross the walking path so it can be hard to avoid them.
The Frisbee Catchers - come on - we dare you to throw it our way :)

Denny's New Hobby

Having a park in front and behind our new house - we have a LOT of local wildlife including some very friendly Green Anole Lizards that love to not only sit on our deck - but constantly seem to find their way into the sunroom. Denny has decided these are great fun to chase and has taken to sitting out on the deck for hours just watching for them.
There's one behind you Mom
And another one over there
And there's one up there in the tree
I the Denny Dog am watching you Mr Anole!

The Culprits

For days we have been wondering what has been digging up our back yard (and leaving tasty little morsels behind - which for some reason MOM screams at us NOT to eat!!!!!!!) Well today Mom caught the culprits. A whole family of little armadillos. These guys are like little bull dozers - they stick their noses in the grass and away they go - digging big holes looking for fat tasty lawn grubs and if they get stuck they use those big old claws on their front feet to rip the grass out. Mom got really close to them and they just didn't seem to notice her all - (Dad calls Mom a super stealthy ninja though as she moves sooooo quietly ALL the time) We have noticed holes in everyone lawns around our little neighborhood so we guess they are pretty busy most nights and early mornings.

The Joy of Moving

It has been a super busy week - Mom and Dad moved most of our stuff themselves - but we did have to hire "College Hunks" to come and move the real heavy stuff like the washer and dryer, lounge and love seat etc. They were awesome and it is so cool to be able to hire college students and give them a helping hand. In between moving they were also cleaning our old rental house and making sure it looked good.

Of coarse this whole thing really stressed us - the dweeb out. He couldn't figure out where the back door was and did the awful runny upset tummy poop on Mom's brand new rug (trust me - she was NOT happy) and then I got stressed had an upset tummy and barfed up yellow frothy stuff and my dinner TWICE - on Mom's brand new rug - she just about had steam coming out of her ears but she knew it wasn't really our fault :) 

Can you believe today Dad said we both smelled doggie (go figure.... considering we ARE dogs) so he gave us both BATHS - the indignity of it I say. At least we now have a nice new deck to go and lay on while we dry off.
