Feed Me. Now. - 18/52

Giant Dawg gets a little pushy at dinner time.  And breakfast time for that matter...

Feed Me.  Now. - 18/52

The ducks got new digs yesterday.  We built them a larger 6' x 6' dock with a dog igloo in the middle for winter shelter.  They seem to like it and started exploring it right away.  Daddy Duck is the only one that decided he liked the old, half sinking dock better.  Go figure.

Here they are checking out their new duck pad.  You can see Daddy Duck on the old dock looking a bit apprehensive:

Jason goes in for surgery on his ankle on Thursday.  He ripped his peroneal tendon right in half and has to have it reconstructed with bovine tendon (Moo Moo Buckaroo!).  He's been hobbling around on crutches for 6 weeks now and will be for another couple of months until he can start physical therapy.  Luckily I'm home now to help him out, particularly because it's his right foot and he can't drive anywhere.

And speaking of working from home - it rocks!  I could use a couple more clients to make me feel a little more comfortable, but so far it's going well.  It's nice actually having time to put into my own work and actually having weekends free to do whatever I want (for now anyway).  We usually get a busy spree at the beginning of the year when new budgets are in place, so hopefully after the holidays we'll pick up those extra clients and be well on our way!

Making Use of the Treadmill - 17/52

Heelers have an uncanny way of making themselves comfortable just about anywhere, and Blue is no exception.  Here he is, curled up in a tiny bed that is 3 sizes too small for him, with his head resting on the treadmill.  At least someone was putting the thing to good use.  Luckily I sold it yesterday.  But alas, Blue will have to find himself a new headrest.

Silly Ducks - 16/52

Go Go Duckzilla!

Duckzilla - 16/52

Flipping me the feather?

Giving me the Feather?

Wait for meeeee!

Wait for Meeeeee!

The ducks crack me up.  They dive, they flap across the water at insane speeds and the little brown girl, my favorite of the bunch, is a food fiend!  This last photo is of her running up the hill because she knew I had food up there for her.  They are very entertaining!

Scrappy Doo - 15/52

This is Scrappy.  He belongs to our friends Christina & Charlie and is a hoot!  He has the longest legs I've ever seen on a little dog and boy can he run!  Him and his sister dog, Molly, come over for play dates with our four on a regular basis.  Scrappy was rescued from the Humane Society about a year ago.  Such a funny little love!

Comfy Giant Dawg - 14/52

Buddy snuck up on the couch during our Halloween party and someone covered him up.  He was quite comfy and stayed there for quite some time.  It was also after he swiped a chunk out of the cake on the counter too so maybe his tummy wasn't feeling so hot!
