Must Love Dogs

Molly's girls... Both girls have new homes. They sold the same night, within an hour or so of eachother. It's hard to give them away, but I know I cannot keep any more dogs, we have plenty! (Our Yorkies... Lucy, Molly, Rodney, Ozzy, Peanut, and Sadie.)

Rosie... Went to her new home last night. Her new mommy is the sister and next door neighbor of the people who took one of Lucy's pups, Tawny. Rosie's new mommy is very sick, fighting cancer, and was camera shy since the chemo treatments have taken all her hair. She's gonna give this little puppy tons of love. And Tawny will be with Rosie all day while Tawny's family works.

Maggie... Is still with us. What a sweetie she is... cuddle, cuddle, cuddle. Her new family will pick her up next weekend. They used to raise another small breed of dogs, and right now, they do not have any pets and can't wait to love this pup. And then, no more puppies for us for a year or so. Here's Maggie with her mother, Molly. Molly is in terrible need of a haircut.

Sadie... She is getting cuter and cuter by the minute! What a character she is. She runs all the dogs, bossing them around, egging them on to play. These little dogs play like no other! It's so funny to watch them romp around.

Bailey... I am babysitting Bailey and her bigger sister, Abby, a one year old Yorkie. Their family went to the water amusement park, The Lagoon, at Salt Lake City this weekend. This is the sister to Sadie, and Tawny, featured in my previous entry. So, I havea HOUSE FULL of Yorkies this weekend! It's funny how different Yorkies can be, even within the same litter! They're all so cute!

New Program

This photo was taken a couple of weekends ago, in my parents' backyard. The photo itself, wasn't quite what I thought it would be, so, I started playing around with different options in the editor and came across this crinkled texture look, and I liked it! I'm enjoying a day off from work, home alone. Yes, home alone, and enjoying it! LOL

Here's the original photo...

I'm not sure what these were, my parents were pretty proud of them. I thought they were thistles, weeds. Come to think of it, there weren't any stickers or thorns, and they did kinda grow on me.

Actually, I was pretty busy today, for being off work. I had a "pamper me" appointment at noon, then went to Costco... Boy, is it just me, or is EVERYONE going to Costco now-a-days!? There wasn't a spot to park in their entire parking lot! And this was Friday, not even a weekend! Sadie had an appointment for her vaccinations. And, Molly's girls are now 7 weeks old, so they needed their first shots and checkup. I stopped by my parents' on my way home for a quick visit. They are doing good today. They hadn't seen Sadie since she was just itty-bitty, and they'd never seen Molly's girls. I think my parents got a kick out of the pups. Seven week old puppies are so much fun! I need to get more photos to post of them.

Our Fourth of July

What a beautiful day it was, in Idaho, this 4th of July. We enjoyed a good, long weekend. My guy was home, and would be home for the entire weekend! My son was also home, but he had to work most of the weekend, so he missed out on some of the fun...

We ventured out to the little town of Melba, Idaho, about 30 miles from home...

We found a bunch of real pretty TRACTORS, in all sorts of colors, shapes and sizes...

Now, what would a 4th of July celebration be without a tractor pull? This was my first time at witnessing such an event.

Plenty of folks found it lots of fun to be out in the dust, thrown by the gigantic tires of the tractors as they dug down into the soft, resurfaced ground, pulling "The Mule," a pull-sled sponsored by good ol' John Deer.

Like the tractors, folks came in all shapes and sizes.

The littlest of folks caught my lens and I couldn't resist getting this shot. One of the kids had something the rest of them wanted.

Melba was lots of fun... There was a rock climbing wall, an antique car show, arts and crafts, hamburgers, hot dogs and cold drinks.

Before we arrived, they had their patriotic parade down the center town.

Going to Melba truly was a lot of fun!

Back home, we had our dinner and got ready for FIREWORKS! At dusk, we took the motorcycle and found our town's aerial display. We haven't ridden the motorcycle in over a year. There's just something about the wind in your face when riding.
