Co-Hosted Follow-Up Friday – May 10, 2013

Welcome to co-hosted Follow-Up Friday, the blog hop that let’s you wrap up your week and leads you right into the weekend.

My co-hostess this week is a repeater, she writes about her pups, Riva, Cheyenne, Maia and Titan, as well as educating about the Chessie breed.  She recently returned to blogging after taking a little break and I for one am tickled to have her back.

Please welcome my friend Misty from Misty Shores Chesapeakes.

Black and White Sunday


5-5-13-C This photo was taken about two years ago, in the midst of Sampson’s allergic reaction to something in our yard.  If you look closely, you’ll see he has a bald spot above his right ear. I love the way Delilah is sitting and the way the flowers match her collar.  I love that dog in purple!

Sadly the rains came in the last couple of days and look what happened to the Rhododendron tree.

The Rains

Stinky and Needy

I’m glad you found it humorous, I intended it to come across that way.

All Things Collie asked, “Do you think Sampson ate the Bisquick too?”  It did cross my mind because I couldn’t figure out why he was so needy, but I can tell you there was no smell in the living room.

Sue asked,”What I want to know is who took the picture of you & Sampson on the floor? The camera fairy, maybe?”  No, it was actually recreated, trust me there was only me and Sampson awake that night.

Blueberry’s human asked, “I wonder if the vet office staff quickly place their bets on what you are calling about when they see your number pop up?”  You know that’s a great idea!  I think I’ll mention it the next time I’m in there.

JoAnn said, “How old is Delilah?”  Believe it or not she turned 7 in December.  I had hopes that once she hit the two to three years with us mark she would have stopped this behavior, but Delilah is Delilah.

Snoopy said, “I’m wondering how long it will take for you to laugh at the mischief?”  Pretty quick.  By the end of the next day I was already planning it for Monday’s Mischief. 😉

Sue asked, “So, hubby slept through all the stinkbombs?”  Either that or it was like Propofol for him. 😉

Mango Momma said, “Dog farts can be toxic. At least it feels that way sometimes.”  Oh yes, I agree with you 100%!

H and Flo asked, “So Stinky and Needy aren’t the name of the newest dwarves?!”  LOL I actually tried to figure out a way to incorporate that but couldn’t do it.

Donna said, “Oh Delilah. Again?????
Maybe Sampson was just trying to escape the smell???”  I’m thinking you might be right on that.

A Little Yankee Ingenuity

Sugar asked, “What kind of bone you are using?” and Jessica asked, “Are those real bones that you are stuffing?”  Champ’s mom asked, “Is that just a hollowed out marrow bone you use?”

I bought those bones about seven years ago and they were stuffed with either cheese or peanut butter.  Once Sampson had cleaned them out, they were still good for chewing.  I did try and find some newer ones but the ones I found were easily destroyed and didn’t work out.

What Are We Up To?

There was a great variety of guesses on this one

Slimdoggy said, “Looks like some good heel training being done!”

Elyse and Riley said, “Are you learning doggy dancing, Delilah?”

Jen said, “Taking a dance class!”

Winner, winner chicken dinner!!  Tuesday night Delilah and I started our Freestyle class, and we are practicing her show heel.

This ‘N That Thursday

For those of you who are friends with Julie on facebook you know that Cali went over the bridge on Wednesday evening.  My heart just aches for Julie and Kevin and what they are going through and I wish I had words to help her.   But words seem so inadequate.

Jackie asked, “There is never “enough” time with them. What amount could possibly be enough??”  You are right my friend, there is never enough time with them!

Please keep Julie and Kevin in your hearts, thoughts and prayers in this very sad time.

This is the Follow-Up Friday Blog hop hosted by Misty Shores Chesapeakes and Heart Like a Dog.

    Thanks for hosting this blog hop…I am finally joining in this week! That Rhododendron tree was beautiful! We finally are having spring so we are looking forward to some flowery bushes soon and lilacs…the only thing that we find mom sniffing around on when we walk :)

    I totally agree that we never have enough
    time to spend with those we love.
    I guess that helps helps cherish those times even more!

    Gizmo doesn’t fart (really!) but one of the dogs that i was sitting for does…in bed…a lot…so I can relate to the stink…Being partial to purple I do like the photo better in color…what are those purple flowers? are they the rhododendrons? My heart goes out to Julie & Kevin…Cali looked so much like my Bruno that their story brought back many memories…TGIF!

    Oh, that picture in color is absolutely gorgeous! And good for you (and Delilah) for taking a freestyle class…you’re much braver than me…I would probably trip over Riley and fall flat on my face! :) See you next week!

    Great photo and great follow up! Lucy used to be a champion farter and we called her the tooter sometimes. Wicked bad they were… but now that she’s gone, I’d take those stinky farts any day. :-)

    Delilah’s color is definitely purple, the color of royalty. She looks like a queen and certainly has the authority of the royal at times.

    Thanks for thinking of us Jodi. We are heartbroken and just trying to make our way, we SO appreciate your love and support – thank you!!!

    So sorry to hear about the sweet dog that passed. Their lives are so short, their only fault really (a quote from someone i forgot who) the pictures are gorgeous

    Great FUF!! Thanks for having me co-host, always glad to do it :) I am a little behind, had to take my brother to the hospital yesterday for a minor surgery and ended up being there for 7 hours.

    Okay on that B&W photo, how cool would that be to have it B&W except for the tree 😉 I think that would look very cool.

    Have you tried buying fresh shank bones from the butcher or market, that is what I buy for my guys and once they get all the marrow out I use them over and over to fill and freeze. Their pretty inexpensive too, at least at my market.
