Izzy is showing herself to be a true beagle. However she listens pretty well and doesn't bark as much as Gus. Gus is enjoying the companionship after 11 years with no doggie pal. We rescued her from the Vet School, which got her from the humane shelter. And she was spayed, current on her shots, and micro chipped for a wonderful price of $0!!!!
:: how well our new dog, Izzy is fitting in.
Brenna and Mr. Beasley, mini-dachshund (we all agree that he looks like a mini-blue tick coon hound).:: their new doggie. We wanted to dog nap him.
:: Brayden's fascination with cattail seeds.
:: Brenna's love of telling jokes. (that are not funny at all to anyone but her!)
:: Brayden's current obsession with mazes. I see a corn maze in our near future!!!
School of fish in the chalk river getting on the school bus.:: the elaborate chalk rivers my kids have been creating (sometimes with Dad's help) on the front drive and sidewalk.
