 This past week it was really nice here in Arizona, so we were able to play outside again, finally. I am happy to say Lucy decided to join us for the first time in a very long time. She has kinda not wanted to be bothered lately, and is spending a lot of time in her bed. The kids love having her outside with them.

                                      She is such a Good Girl

 Pete cooked like we had a house full,  he has not figured out how to cook small. It's okay though, he out cooked himself again this year.

  All the dogs got new blankets, well I started out just getting Elvis and Jake one, because the ones they had just seen the washer too many times. Then I realized that Betty was really enjoying the one I put on my bed, so I got her one too. Then I thought, well maybe Lucy might like one, so I got her one and to my surprise she loves it. After 3 trips to the store for blankets, they love them, it's so cute the way they snuggle in them.

                              What do you suppose they are up to?
 Funny, it  looks like Elvis is holding a meeting, and they are all listening. Usually when they meet like this, it's around the treat cabinet, not in the living room
                 They are Good Dogs, but I almost think I should be worried.

                   I caught them, I haven't seen them all walking with Lucy yet

  Here they come.
  Pete has already run
 5 miles with Elvis, Jake, Betty, this is Lucy's walk, she likes it when all the dog's go with her. Pete makes walking with 4 dogs look easy.

                                                What Good Dogs

Remember This

 This is my dog free couch. I said no dogs allowed on this couch. I wanted one piece of furniture  that was dog hair free, yeah right with 4 dogs, I really thought this couch was it, because usually when the dogs are in this room they are sitting in the chair, with Pete.

It started with Elvis

Jake wasn't about to be left out, he always sits where Elvis sits. Except Jake likes to fluff his pillow, by scratching at the seat before he sits. So I had to put something down so he won't scratch a hole it. Putting something down would be okay, if anyone us would pull it up when company comes, there would be no dog hair, but instead some how everyone just sits on top of the cover. Drives me crazy, and it's ugly.  Betty has been taught if there's a cover on it she can get on it, so I couldn't tell her no.

Looks a lot like a dog couch, right
Yes that's me sitting on the floor Jake took my spot
 6 months since Elvis first starting getting on this couch, for all the dogs to over take this couch
                                   Good Dogs?   SPOILED DOGS

Old Friend

 Yesterday I went and saw an old friend of mine. He has a beautiful Rottweiler, named Bruin, that I had the pleasure of helping with a little, when he was a baby, Of course he's no baby today, and even though it's been a long time since I've seen them, I was so happy that Bruin knew who I was and he was very excited to see me. He's a little over a year older than Elvis, and I found some old pictures of Bruin and Elvis.

Bruin at about 1 month old
Bruin at about 18 months, Elvis 7 weeks

Bruin at about 3 years old
Bruin with me, today at just over 4 years old
 He is such a Good Boy

 Most of you know Elvis likes to beg. He's begging in these pictures, but not for food. He wants my seat. There are plenty of seats for him, but he's so spoiled he wants mine, because he is cold. The new baby was over and I was feeding her. He was wanting to be the baby, wanting my seat, he tried very hard to get me to move.

 His best begging look
He is pawing at me 
 I finally had to get up, and he wasted no time taking the chair.
                                               He's a Good Boy
