Critter K Walk

Saturday Sept 20 is the 2nd Annual Critter K Walk sponsored by Chip Wynn and Dr Flanary of Paducah. Sugar and I walked last year along with some of my best friends in the picture. The proceeds go towards helping local rescue groups. Please help if you can.

Poor Wilson

Introducing Canebrake The Cast Away - AKA "Wilson". He's my 7 month old brother (the one that ate the book). Wilson is named after the movie "The Cast Away" with Tom Hanks. I wish he was on an island!!

Mom came home last night to find Wilson's eye nearly swollen shut along with his nose. Looks like he got into a tangle with a wasp or bee and they won. Mom called our friend the vet and he took some medicine and is back to his normal annoying self today....sigh...I keep telling myself he will grow up soon and really he is a pretty good puppy considering...

Winds of Change

Remnants of IKE flew through Western KY this a.m. My mom (who thinks she would love to be a storm chaser) captured some scary wind on video. The sound in the video is not rain. It is the wind howling at 60-70 mph gusts and leaves blowing horizontally through the air. The tree that fell is over the fence. Mom had to quickly fix it so that the GSPs would not escape to freedom. Jack (AKA the Wise One and danger predictor of the family) told us it was the real thing and we better seek shelter. We all followed suit and not a peep was heard throughout the ordeal. The sun is shining now with a calm wind. Life is Good again.... Henry V

Remember 9/11

In memory of 9/11 families and victims, I wanted to revisit the story of Roselle the yellow lab who assisted her owner down 78 flights of stairs to safety.....We will never forget.....

Dog Days of Summer

Summer is gearing down around here but Wilson (my annoying 7 month old black lab "brother") is just getting started. Mom keeps telling me "he has a lot to learn" and boy does he!

Mom put him in "time out" for chewing one of my mom's lab books up -that was stupid Wilson.

**Responsible dog owner tip - Crates are a GOOD thing. Dogs view these are their safe place and keeps us out of trouble when our humans are busy with work and tempting things are near and humans can't watch us.

No, this isn't snow in September. Mom got tired of seeing yellow fur flying around in the house and brushed my hair. Sophie and Belle thought it was hilarious (doesn't take much to amuse those two California girls LOL).

This is me afterwards sitting in my "throne" Dad's $1500 leather chair. Don't I look handsome! Mom is just happy to see me sitting here as one month ago I couldn't even hardly lift myself without help.

Hope you all have a great day. It's time for my nap and I will dream about "big water" and all kinds of fun stuff.
