A Little Paws

sorry for the lack of posting, but i've been spending a lot of time at the pool.  i look nowhere near as cute in my bathing suit as pip does. but it feels good to cool off in this texas heat!

On Safari

so i originally bought this bed for the dogs but elliot has claimed it.  one time tucker got on it and ellie gave him the stink eye until he moved.  that's right, she stared him down and won.  way to be a DOG tucker.

I Pity the Fool

of mr,. t!

looks like somebody over indulged on the margaritas...again.   while tucker and charlie sleep it off, pip would like to remind you if you drink, please don't drive!  have a safe and happy cinco de mayo!

Somebunny's Watching You

tucker wants to know if you see that easter egg too.  because he swears it wasn't there when i took the picture.  i think someone ate a little too much easter candy!

I Scream, You Scream

we all scream for ice cream!  ok, so maybe some of us bark for ice cream :)  and charlie might just come up and steal it if you're not careful!   we've been spending a lot of time outside before it gets too hot here.  unfortunately, it's already starting to get to that point.  damn texas heat!

A Pretty Sweet Time

i've been a bad blogger of late...sorry about that :(  
but pip has been having fun hanging with her peeps. maybe while she's out, she 
should get a paw-dicure :)

Gather Round

 one of these things is not like the others.  is it ellie, the only cat?  or is it charlie, the only male in the picture?  or maybe it's charlie because he's the only one without a brain.

A Kiss Goodbye

tucker had so much fun with daddy home!  so it's bittersweet to have to say goodbye again.  with any luck the second half of this deployment will go by just as quick!

The Countdown Begins

i think these pictures speak for themselves.  it's been tough not having michael around.  we are all looking forward to having him home soon, even if  it's only for a short time.

Bad Dog

tucker has been so depressed without daddy.  so in order to stay close to him, tucker has picked up the bad habit of dipping.  yuck!!

16 January 2011

Um, yeah...

so, i've got nothing for you.  it's been raining and cold the last couple of days and that has made me super lazy and a little brain dead.  so you're stuck with this.  not unlike poo on your shoes :)

I'm a Wiener

ok, not a wiener dog but a winner!  and no that's not a self-affirmation, i won a contest from pixable.   if you've never heard of pixable, i highly recommend checking them out (pixable.com).  they have awesome photo books that you can design and they're affordable!    unfortunately, it wasn't for a photo i submitted, just a comment, but still...i won! 

thanks for your love pip!  i think you're pretty awesome too :)

Eskimo Wishes

see that look tucker is giving me?  he's thinking "dammit woman, turn on the heat already!" yeah, well until you start paying the bills tucker, you're just gonna have to snuggle up!  if it stays this cold, i will turn the heat on so no one call the spca on me :)

Caught on Camera

somehow i managed to get this photo before charlie took off like a bat in hell.  that cat can turn any dog into a scaredy cat!

Happy Birthday!

aww, good dog!  happy birthday sweetie!!  we love you and miss you!!
