picture brags...

I have a great looking family here!
Desmond certainly looks to be a proud big brother.

Steven, Maddie, Desmond and Danika


still around

Well I have been slack about posting but in my defense I was away visiting my family and then I got sick.. 2 weeks and just starting to feel better..

We had a great trip ( except for the getting sick part ). I got to spend a lot of time with my grandchildren which was great. We spent a couple of days in Niagra Falls at a hotel connected to an indoor waterpark which was fun..

 Desmond loved the slide.. Although Daddy wanted to take him on the big ones... Next time Dad.

Niagra Falls of course

There was no snow on the ground but it was freezing walking back from the falls.

From a Dog's Point of View

10 Commandments for Dogs
From a Dog's Point of View

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you will be painful for me. Remember that BEFORE you get me.
2. Give me time to understand what you want from me.
3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial to my well-being.
4. Don't be angry with me for long, & don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, entertainment & friends. I have only YOU.
5. Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don't understand your words, I understand your voice. 
6. Be aware that however you treat me, I'll never forget.
7. Please don't hit me. I can't hit back, but I can bite & scratch and I really don't want to do that.
8. Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate, or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right foods or I've been out in the sun too long or my heart is getting old and weak. 
9. Take care of me when I get old. You too will grow old.
10. Go with me on difficult journeys. NEVER say, "I can't bear to watch, or let it happen in my absence." Everything is easier for me if YOU are there. Remember, I LOVE YOU!!
