Day 304 – Dog Walk Challenge

28 Feb

Back at home for our walks – and back to the cold. On the plus side, I think we’re well past the frigid weather, so it doesn’t take me ten minutes to get ready to leave the house!

Don’t look now, Choppy, but I think someone is spying on you.

Days 300-303 – Dog Walk Challenge

Hi Everyone! We have been in New Orleans for Mardi Gras for a few days, hence the lack of comment responses and Dog Walk Challenge updates. But no worries – the walks continued, with the added bonus of being in a warm location for them.

This week should be fun and exciting – we have our normal posts, plus (if I can get my act together today and tomorrow), a big announcement! In the meantime, I hope to get caught up on comments and visiting your blogs to catch up with you over the next couple days. Happy Monday, and happy start to a new week!

Howlidays: Spunky Old Broads Month

25 Feb

February is Spunky Old Broads Month!

Tuesday (February 28) is Choppy’s (sort of) Gotcha Day – it’s the day I went to the Humane Society and picked out a little fluffball of a puppy  who was contentedly sleeping in a corner of her kennel, already given up for adoption a second time in her life. I wouldn’t be able to pick her up for a few days after that, but that was the day someone put up a blue sign on her kennel to let everyone know that the cute little puppy in that particular kennel was spoken for and had a forever home waiting. That was eight years ago.

Do you know how I remember it was eight years ago? Because I had just turned 30 three days earlier. So today, when I turn 38, I just have to do the subtraction to figure out how long I have had Choppy.

Of course, I don’t think either of us is old – and depending on the day, we may not be terribly spunky, either! But we’ll celebrate Spunky Old Broads Month anyway – because who doesn’t like a spunky old broad?

Where’s Choppy? Winter Cattails Edition

24 Feb

During last weekend’s warm weather, we got some great shots of Choppy (or not of Choppy) for “Where’s Choppy?” There will be another one next weekend!

***

The weekly instructions and warning:

Choppy is somewhere in the photo below. We will post an answer on Monday so you can see if you are correct in your guess as to her location. In the meantime, if you don’t want to know where she is, do not go look at the comments. They are full of answers. And poor guesses. But mostly answers. The people who comment here are excellent at this game.
