Photo Friday – Climbing at the Park

will at park.jpg

During the boys week off the weather was nice enough to walk up to the park and play. The boys love the climbing wall. I tried to get Islay to pose through the hole, but she wasn’t having any part of it. I do love her large tongue.

Islay and the Recorder

In fourth grade the kids learn to play the recorder. Jack brought his home about a month ago and is working at learning his first few songs. Each time he practices Islay goes crazy. We can’t decide if she likes it or hates it. She doesn’t run away, but in some cases will run from downstairs to his room when she hears it. She is a silly dog.

Photo Friday – Halloween 2014

Halloween 2014.jpg

Halloween this year was full of heroes. Jack was Donatello from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Will was Superman and Islay was Supergirl. Supergirl didn’t cooperate very well for the photo of their backs. I felt well protected last night.

Boys and Islay 2014.jpg

I have been thinking back to last summer when we had a new puppy and all the craziness that came with that. She isn’t completely full grown, but she is getting closer. Such a pretty girl!

Photo Friday – Two Medicine Lake

On our big camping trip this year we went to Glacier National Park. At the south eastern corner of the park is Two Medicine Lake. It is a beautiful area of the park, that isn’t visiting by many people. We loved seeing the lake and hiking to a waterfall nearby.

Happy Birthday Islay

Islay 1st birthday.jpgToday is Islay’s 1st birthday. We have had quite a ride with her since bringing her home in July. Islay is living up to many of her breed qualities as well as her own sweet personality. We love her very much and couldn’t imagine our family without her.

In honor of her birthday here are some things that describe her.

I – interested. She is always interested in what you are doing. If you are digging in the back yard she is pretty much standing in the hole or if I am putting things away in the house she is my shadow.

S – silly. Between her silly tail, her funny Swissy expressions or when she decides to rip around the room, she is very silly. The boys love to watch her and laugh.

L – long and large. I knew how big she would get, but didn’t really comprehend how long she would be, both her body and her tail. She has no idea how big she is. All dogs look little now compared to her.

A –affectionate. Islay loves you with her whole body, whether it is with her head in your lap or her butt on your feet. She wants you to know she loves you.

Y – youthful energy. She has amazing energy and really enjoys being in the yard with all of us.

Happy Birthday Islay girl! Hopefully this is the first of many we get to celebrate with you.

Photo Friday – Silly Puppy

We have a silly puppy who is growing like a weed. She is very sweet but very silly. This is her doing the superman, which is one of the fun things about this breed. She will also roll onto her back anytime you are trying to get her up so you can’t get her off the ground. What a goofy puppy!

Photo Friday – Islay and Jack raking

Islay chasing rake

 

Islay has enjoyed “helping” Jim rake leaves this fall. Last weekend Jack started pulling the rake around and she chased it all through the yard. Who knew that a rake could provide so much fun.
