Puppy Love

Anyone who loves dogs knows they all have their own unique personalities. Some are brave or timid, others placid or hyper, some very playful, and others show a quiet intelligence. But they all capture and quickly wiggle into our hearts and become our loyal best friends. 

 My youngest visited this weekend and brought my new grand fur-baby, four months old. It was love at first sight!  Ms. Penny had a grand time at Grand-mama's.  We played and took walks and visited the horses and neighbors and played some more and went fishing.  We went out to eat in the village, and went to the Tractor Store, and to the hairdressers.  We celebrated two birthdays and planted flowers and worried the chickens and Uncle Ben dog to pieces..........
 Oh my....I am going to miss her. (and you too sweetheart!)       :)






When I am out on my treasure hunts for the booth and website, looking for sweet doggie items is always a priority.   Chippy chalk ware scottie dog figurines, gorgeous old show dog litho prints, or the sweetest vintage plaid child's blouse, printed with puppy dogs, all capture my heart.







 





 
While, Ms. Penny was helping me plant flowers this weekend, I took the time to snap a few photos of the pink rhododendrons just coming into bloom.  The azaleas are winding down but these gorgeous blooms take their place.  Can't wait to pick a bunch along with the pink peonies soon opening. And the roses!..... roses before Mother's Day is something I have never had before.  His blessings are never ending.  xoxo

Happy Pink Saturday, Lynn.

Ooooooh, that little grand pup is a cutie pie. I am sure you did have a ball with him! I'm so glad you had such a good visit with your youngest, too!

Your flowers are gorgeous! Sure wish we had big trees on our lot....zero in our back yard and two small ones in the front. I do not miss dealing with leaves in the fall, but I miss out awesome they are in the spring and summer.

Have a great week!!

L, Dana
