After having a day long melt down yesterday, me and the boys went into the bush today. We worked at getting grounded and calming my brain down.  Dogs and nature are better than meds!!

Anger, beauty and my boys

How can I be so angry, hurt and lonely when there is all this beauty and so reasons to smile around me?

The boys are really keen on doing obedience training.  Sam is a so smart and eager.  Hepzee has always been harder to train because he wasn’t food motivated, but that’s changing.  He now loves his food and is willing to work for it.

I’m embarrassed to say that we’ve never managed to leash train ourselves.  We work at it every summer, then give up.  I was amazed when I put the leashes on them yesterday, they both walked like pros.

I’m off to therapy in a few minutes.  Going to see if I can dissipate some of this anger and hurt.

Dignified Hepzee, Lackadaisical About Running Sam I Am

Brotherly love!!

I kept stopping Hepzee and making him pose. He got impatient with me, he just wanted to run around.

So dignified.
Sam has a hard time staying still long enough for me to get a picture of him. His wait needs some working on.

3 1/2' of rain over a day. A local farmer said it 3 3/8' to much. Seven hours without hydro. Cold, blustery weather.

Why do dogs look so awkward when they relieve themselves? A deep $64,000 I question I have on occasion.

It was a tumultuous day. It finally stopped raining, and the sun kind of peeked out for a few minutes.

Mom borrowed us the van today, so we went for a drive to Stove Pipe City. Ate a huge plate of fries, took some pictures, went for a walk, and went for a run. They are typical siblings and have to both sit on the front seat. Looks mildly uncomfortable, but it's very amusing.

Wind's coming straight from the north today.

Samuel

Hepzee loves to run, and barks and growls when he realizes he's going for a run. Sam is somewhat lackadaisical when it comes to running, so I occasionally have to give him a motherly nudge out of the car.

My Boys!! Too cute (and dignified) for their own good

Meet Hephzibah and Samuel.  My muses, my life, my motivation.

Hephzibah is 4 years old.  Has some German Shepherd and Chihuahua in him.  Hepzee is very dignified and somewhat staid.  He keeps to himself, loves his kennel and is fastidious about keeping clean.

Nicknames: Hepzee, Pooch 2

Samuel is 1 year old.  He is half Basset Hound, half Double Doodle.  Samuel is my little ladies man.  He is so affectionate, a bit too friendly (he hops into stranger’s vehicles) far too cute, and a bundle of energy.  Sam loves water, loves to swim, loves to chase water birds.  Once he’s wet, he quite enjoys running through the fields and getting very dirty.

Nicknames:  Mr. Sam I Am, Pooch 3, Sam.

As a mother I reserve the right to take far to many pictures and brag incessantly about my boys!!
