Flaunting their Plaiditude

April 6th is National Tartan Day! I had every intention of setting a table in celebration but it’s been a busy two weeks with Easter. My wee bonnie lasses joined the Tartan Parade in blogland last year, so I’m flaunting their plaiditude again this year in celebration! Chloe & Gracie are Mad for Plaid and joining the…

A Visit from the Easter Bunny

The Easter Bunny hopped down the bunny trail to visit Chloe & Gracie! Leaving a basket of treats and bunny ears~ The bunny ears stayed on their heads all of 10 seconds~ A miscalculation by the Easter Bunny~ better suited as belt than a headband :) The treats were a hit~ made with butternut squash, banana…

Boating with Dogs

We had a break in the weather with sunny skies and temperatures in the high 50′s the day of our Love Boat Cruise~ Perfect for a short boat ride. . . and to bask in the sun . . . and to enjoy some scenery~ Blatant disregard for private property and no trespassing notices :)…

Strike a Pose

The Best In Show judging will be tonight at the  137th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. We were pretty Dog Gone excited that a Bichon Frise named Honor was the winner of the non-sporting group! Scissors, blow dryers, bobby pins, and apparently volumizing hair spray are all tools of the trade when it’s time to strike…

All I Want for Christmas

All I want for Christmas (besides a Hatherley Lattistep :) are dogs that sleep past 4 am. . . More water in the pond. . . {Santa we need rain!} And more dish storage. . . Our lake house was built in the ’80s~ the decade for big hair, not big closets :) Our house in Charlotte,…

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie ~ because they are much sweeter. . . . . . and less high maintenance when they sleep :) AND because they get up at 4 am and DEMAND you get up too~ Hope you can sleep in or enjoy a nap this weekend :)

What the Nose Knows and Sniffing Out Winners

Chloe’s nose. . . Big.  Black and Wet. Only Chloe’s nose knows nothing. . . Apparently there for  decorative purposes only :) Gracie’s nose. . . Small. Dry and Discolored. Gracie’s nose knows if there is roasted chicken in a three-mile radius.  Her sniffing-super-powers help compensate for the fact that most of the time she can’t see…
