Rottweiler Wednesday

We took an 8 hour trip to New Mexico last week to visit Lee's family for Thanksgiving.  Of course, Boots went with us.  She is such a good little traveler and loves riding in the truck.  When she was a puppy, she used to sit in the front seat with us and barely took up any room.
Those days are over!

Although she'd still prefer to ride in the front with us, she compromises by sitting on the back seat and draping herself across the middle console...
Which allows her the option of getting into the back seat and sleeping for 7 of the 8 hours on the trip home (complete with snoring)...

Happy Rottie Wednesday!

Happy Thanksgiving!

This is a repeat pic from last year.  It's too cute not to post again.  It made me smile and think of my 3 little pilgrims, gone but not forgotten, and very much missed.
What are you especially thankful for this year?

Rottweiler Wednesday

I thought it was just a little TOO quiet on the front porch this morning...

Boots:  "Ruh Ro".
Ruh Ro is right.  What a little monster!  And yes, it was an old dog bed that had seen better days, but STILL....
"I think I might possibly be in trouble."

Happy Rotten-weiler Wednesday everyone!

Cowgirl Cave

FINALLY ~ my very own studio!  This has been a long time coming.  I've been working in a VERY small space for years now.  We had our neighbor build this addition for me and he did a great job.  Thanks Mike!  I have been having fun moving in, getting organized, arranging and rearranging (and still not done yet).

Boots immediately claimed it for herself (are we surprised??)

The view from my work bench:
I have it set up so I can work from either side of my workbench, depending on what I'm working on.  I can leave one project on the bench and still have a clean work space on the other side.  What a luxury!
A few shots of the construction in progress - getting ready to pour the concrete (the space to the right is our little dining room)
Walls going up:
Getting there...
View from the road:
Just need to paint the stucco to match the adobe and it's done!
I'm a happy cowgirl.  :)

I'm hosting an Open House/Studio Warming Party on December 3rd ~ if you're in the area and would like to come, please do!  Send me an e-mail for details.  Hope to see you then.

Reminiscing about Nutmeg and Patches today.  A cuter pair was hard to find:
I miss seeing things like this:
And this (miss you, too, Angel):
And this:

This house just isn't the same without them.  :(   Sure do wish these little bunnies could stay with us longer...

Happy Bunny Sunday ~

Rottweiler Wednesday

I think this was written just for Boots!
"I  have no idea what she is talking about."
Happy Rottie Wednesday everyone!  XOXO, Boots
