Spud the Golden Retriever with his Football

Spud, my sister's Golden Retriever, loves this football. He's always carrying it around with him and as you can see he has ripped it almost to shreds. It's his Chicago Bears football, he's a big fan, he loves to cheer when the Bears are doing good, it's too funny if we all start to cheer, he starts jumping around whining -- he loves to watch the game except this year he has been a bit disappointed in the team!!

What are your Favorite Color Combinations?

I love color and certain color combinations always draw my attention. I do love earth tones and the Southwest colors really draw me, the brown, silver, turqouise, for some reason my eye is always drawn to that. I also love black and white, these two color combos always seem to attract me. It could be that I'm looking at a page of items and my eye always move towards either the southwest colors or black and white -- don't know why this is, but it is. So what are your favorite colors and which do you like to work with?

All the Santa Dogs

Here are all the dogs with the Santa hat on; my Lena and my sister's dogs, Edie, Spud and Peyton. The two old girls Lena and Edie were the best when it came to keeping the hat on. They both posed very nicely, but those two younguns were hard especially Spud, as you can see he's on the sofa laying down, that was the only way I could get a picture of him. I had to hold his paws so he wouldn't try to rip it off. I put the photos in order of their age with the two old gals first. The last photo is Edie's final photo for the day!


Edie, the oldest at 13.


Lena second in line at age 10.


Spud at 7 years of age.


And the little brat at 4.

And here's Edie -- she's done with all the posing -- th th th, that's all folks!
