Happy 4th of July!

Daisy May hanging out and watching me work.

Bugsy with a toy mustache, sort of like a milk mustache only this one happens when you eat toys.

Little Joey came back and spent a few days with us while his family was out of town. Bugsy refused to share his toys.

Until next time, keep those Bullies cool this summer.

Old Dog New Trick

My mother stopped by yesterday for a quick visit and brought her dog with her. A corgi named Beacon. They were here for about an hour. My mom left Beacon outside but after he was done checking the outside area out he decided it was time to let himself in. The next day Mickey started doing this:

Unfortunately neither of the dogs have learned how to shut the door behind them.

BTW did I mention that Mickey runs in and out of the house all day long! Every time that door opens he thinks he has to go through it. Here's an example of how crazy this is. Mickey is laying on the dining room floor and I walk in the house. He jumps up and runs out the door, you know, because it's open. I close the door behind me and Mickey is now outside on the deck. Only he forgot why he went out there, it's hot and uncomfortable. So before I have walked more then five steps away from the door he's already opening it and coming back in the house! He does this EVERY time someone walks though that door!  I really dislike this new trick of his! :)

Catching up

Today I found out I can blog from my phone, which is cool because lately I take a lot more photos on my phone then with the canon. Also it's harder to type so there will be much less chit chat. Anyway I thought I would show you all some recent phone images of the gang as I figure out how to use this blogger app.

It's Bugsy! All grown up. 

Father and son. 

Mickey doing what he does best.

There's Daisy and my 11 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback looking out the people door of our new living room addition. No steps yet and I locked the dog door so they couldn't follow me.

So there they are. We have been enjoying the cool spring weather and spending our time outside. The dogs like to help me in the garden. Bugsy tries to eat every weed I pull while Mickey sleeps on the front porch and Daisy runs around chasing rabbits like a maniac. Hope the rest of you are enjoying the nice weather as much as we are!

April Showers

Over the winter we put a dog door in the living room, now I'm having 2nd thoughts. I think next time I pick out laminate flooring instead of taking the samples into the house to see how I like them, I'm taking them to the back yard, to see what ones best match the dirt there.
Another fun thing for your EB to do when it rains and they have access to a dog door. Wait until you are dressed for the day and just getting ready to walk out there door, then body slam you while they are soaking wet. You know just in case the bulldog snot missed you earlier.

Daisy's in heat!

Daisy went into heat today, but we are debaiting whether we will be breeding her or not. If we do the puppies would be 8 weeks old in mid Augest, way to hot to have them flown anywhere so they would have to be picked up here in Iowa. If we don't her next heat will be in 6 to 8 months. We have 10 days to make up our mind!

Transformation Tuesday

Remember him?

It's Bugsy!  
Here he is now, 1 year old.
This is how he sits when I'm eating chocolate chip cookies and he wants one.
How about another one?
Wasn't he the cutest baby?
Here he now.
He's still so stinking cute, I gave him one of the kids goldfish crakers. :)
If any of the rest of the gang want's to send us current photos we will do a Transformation Tuesday for you too.

Daisy, Mickey, and bad photos

I was going through my facebook photos today and though I would add a few of the fun ones here. Many of them were taken quickly before the moment passed, so a lot of them are just cell phone photos.

 As many of you know my just turned 10 year old Chloe and Daisy are best buds. Most the photos I have of Chloe have Daisy in them, and vice versa. Daisy is rarely hanging out on her own so many of these photos have Chloe in them also.

This is Chloe's birthday party invite photos. She was having a slumber party.

This is Chloe's valentine card from a few years back. She was a sock monkey for Halloween and wanted to dress up like one again for Valentines Day card photos.

This is Chloe and Daisy asleep in MY bed, where not only are neither one of them supposed to be sleeping for the night, but they also didn't leave any room for me!

This is Chloe, newborn Diggity and momma Daisy hanging out on the sofa on an early Saturday morning. This is how we did most our early puppy work with the babies.

I love this next photo. One of the few times I actually had a good camera up stairs. This is pumpkin carving gone crazy and Daisy doing her human sit position. She is pouting that she didn't get one of those big orange "balls" That night while we slept she chewed the heck out of the last pumpkin that didn't get carved. We set it out wit the others and I said to Chloe "I told you she was jealous that she didn't get to carve a pumpkin when you did." :)

And lastly a photo of Daisy, all by herself. Know why? She's watching for the school bus. :)

We can't forget Mickey can we. We have only had him a year and like most men he hates it when I grab the camera. He refuses to go into the studio with me, and usually if he sees me coming with any type of camera, even a cell phone he runs to me and lays at my feet for a good tummy rub. Hard to take photos of him when he's practically on top of you. :) I catch him unaware now and then though, and here are a few shots of our old man.

Mickey and Kurt doing dishes shortly after Mickey came to live with us last year. After this photo I told Kurt he could help, but standing on the dish washer door was not allowed. :)

I went looking for Mickey so I could wash his face and found him here. He was so lucky those clothes were dirty. :) See the dog chew marks on the door frame behind him. That's what happens when you lock a pregnant Daisy out of her little girls bedroom. She was waking Chloe up at night to be given extra attention so we tried having her sleep just outside the door, it didn't go over to well. :)

This is Mickey pouting because he got locked in the kitchen when Daisy's pups were born.

And this is Mickey acting as an accomplice in Rudy's escape plan. Can you see Mickey's feet straight out behind him. My vets jaw hit the floor when she saw the old man could still lay like that.

For those of you who have not met Rudy the hyper Chihuahua owned by my teen who thinks EB's are gross and smelly, here is some video of him playing with the puppies during walk time.  Of course we took this back when all the babies were still here.

 He makes me love bulldogs that much more. :)

Now you can all see how bad some of my photos are, but I don't think that makes them any less cute, it's better then missing the moment. So don't be afraid to send me your puppy photos. I would rather see my babies in bad photos then not at all. :)
