Well, I guess it's time to finally introduce Murphy. Murphy is a little scamp of a Jack Russell Terrier who has found her way here... silly girl has come in and made herself quite at home.  Anyway, she's going to be quite a hairy little thing I suspect, and I have to say now that she is over what she came with (worms, bacterial infection... who knows?!?), she has turned into a lovely little blur of a dog. :)

Ain't she a cutie? She's going to be a broken (I think, but she might end up REALLY hairy yet) tri-colour Jack Russell.

Muddy Murphy prints on my freshly washed floor!

Look at her go.... 

Yup, she definitely has some attitude, lol.

And finally, Murph trying to nap on Spike. 

I have to say the little gal makes me laugh and is the most fun I have had in ages with a puppy. It's good!

Almost Wordless Wednesday.... Signs of Spring!

Oh, spring is here....

My crocuses are coming up!

My screen is wrecked.

The pool is out.

And Spikey's in a sun beam.

Yup, life is good.

Just checking in

I'm back!! I went away for the weekend, and left the dogs at the kennel. Unfortunately, much as I love visiting my brother's place, it means leaving the dogs behind as they have a "dog free" house. I respect their right to have no dogs in their space, so I trundle the pups off and we all have a little break from each other.

I had a great time on the weekend, accomplishing some much needed work on my paper (due tomorrow, which is a large part of my silence the last week!), and I even managed to make some cards. The only time I seem to craft is when I am with Dorothy. Well, at least craft at stamping and scrapbooking. I worked on my quilt today (pictures to follow).

The dogs are great. Spike killed a gopher, the first ever not to long ago, and I guess he spent his weekend in hot pursuit of number two. Sophie ran and ran and ran some more. And, now she limps and limps and limps some more. I want her to behave like a dog, but when she does, she pays the consequences. I am beginning to wonder if there isn't a better medication to help relieve her symptoms; even on the largest dose I've been told to give her, my girl can still hurt enough to not put weight on her back paw. So, I am thinking when these pills are gone, it might be time to visit the vet and get something else. Poor girl. But, she is pretty chipper, especially in light of the fact that I pulled her favourite toy, her pool out of the garage today and filled it up. She impatiently waited for water, of course by lying in the pool staring at me to move faster. Ha, nothing like labs!
