May Blooms

My azaleas are gone, they just don't last long enough.  The good news is, I have new blooms and new babies all around. :)  Baby birds and squirrels are really enjoying our yard.  We see cottontails late at night too, so cute!
Any new babies or blooms in your yard??

Happy Spring Time!

Hey everyone!  Are you enjoying spring?  We've had beautiful weather here.  This week will be much warmer than the past few weeks.
Hope everyone had a nice Easter.  My dad's birthday was Easter weekend and mine was less than two weeks later. :)  
I'm looking forward to catching up with my blog friends. :)  

This is my Dad & Son.
The picture he's holding is of him and Kyle, Grandpa & Grandson, fishing together
in Boone, NC back in 1999.
I'm so grateful for the relationship they share.  Kyle has so much respect & love for his Grandpa.

This was my birthday cake. :)
This Chocolate Raspberry cake was Delicious!!! and Adorable!!

Our Little Girl, Heidi!

Little Heidi was rescued by my uncle.  Her owner was moving out of state and her plans were to take Heidi and her cat to a shelter.  My uncle heard about this at his work and immediately jumped in to rescue the two.  My uncle's little alpha dachshund wasn't always nice to Heidi, so she's ours now. :) I call her my grandma's dog because when grandma is here you can always find Heidi in grandma's lap. :)
She may only be 4.5 lbs, but she has a BIG bark!    Maybe it's a little yappy, but it's loud! lol
She has a favorite stuffed animal, Ducky, that she keeps in her bed.  If any of the other pups even act like they're about to sniff around Ducky, watch out!  Heidi will come charging and snapping!  As if she has forgotten that she's smaller than Rambo's head!  Gotta love her spunk!
Heidi sends everyone little kisses and hugs!

Our Puppy Dog, Rocket!

Rocket is fast!  When I met him at the shelter his time was up.  I asked for him to be brought out and play in the shelter's yard and he was a blast!  He was fast and wanted to play with every other puppy dog there.  I fell in love with him and five years later he's keeping Roxy and Rambo on their toes. lol  He's like an energetic, permanent two year old. :)
Every morning Rocket turns into border patrol.  He sniffs every inch of our fence to see what was lurking around his yard overnight.  He loves to run into the middle of a bunch of birds and see them fly away...simple pleasures in life. :) 
Rocket doesn't give many kisses, but he sends everyone a "high paw".

He loves to cruise around in the corvette with his boy, Kyle. :)

Our Sweet, Roxanne-Love!

Roxanne is our Alpha dog.  She is the Queen of this household and she can howl like a hound dog!  lol  If someone's knocking at the door and she doesn't feel like getting up...she will howl...it's so funny.  I'll have to record it one day. :) 
She is sweeter than honey, but if one of the dogs aggravate her while she's napping, watch out!  She will snap and growl and they won't mess with her anymore, at least for awhile. :)
Her favorite game is fetch with a tennis ball. :)
Her favorite times of the day are breakfast, dinner and her snacks in between.  She acts as though she hasn't eaten in weeks. lol  Do you have a puppy dog like this??  
Roxy sends you all sweet smooches!

This pic was taken on
Roxanne's 10th Birthday!

Our Puppy Dog, RAMBO!

Rambo is our only pup that will bring us his food bowl when it's time to eat.  He does the same with the water bowls if they're empty. :) 
He sends you all slobbery, sweet kisses! lol
