Rottweiler Wednesday

How hard can it be to get three dogs to sit down and look at the camera for a picture?  Well...

Inca and Freckles were cooperating nicely... I think Boots was distracted by a grasshopper...
And something to the right...
And to the left...
And now even Inca is interested in the grasshopper...  C'mon, work with me girls!
Finally, success!   Success-minus-one-dog...  Sometimes you've just got to take whatever you can get.

Happy Rottie Wednesday!

Rottweiler Wednesday

Boots and her best buddy Inca:
There was a time not too long ago when they were both the same size.  Boots has now passed Inca up by a good 20 pounds.

We took them to Patagonia Lake a few weekends ago when Inca came to stay.  Inca is a swimming, stick retrieving MANIAC.  Boots likes the water, but she's not that interested in swimming or retrieving.  She does like to wait in the water for Inca to bring the stick back and then pounce on her:
And steal the stick...
That scene played out over and over. Neither one ever tired of it. Two puppies, full of energy.

That is, until we were on the way home:
A pair of pooped out pups.  Priceless.

Happy Rottie Wednesday!

A little thought for today...

It shouldn't be surprising that the turtle beat the rabbit over the long run...

Consistent effort, no matter how small, sparks magic, fills sails, butters bread, turns tides, instills faith, summons friends, improves health, burns calories, creates abundance, yields clarity, builds courage, spins planets, and rewrites destinies. 
No matter how small.
Let's hear it for the turtle!  :)

Rottweiler Wednesday

Boots and I are off to the Farmers' Market again today to tend the booth for Equine Voices.  We are there every Wednesday from 10 -2pm.  I finally remembered my camera last week to get a picture of Boots in the booth:
She's my secret weapon to lure people over to our booth!  Not many people can walk by this face without at least stopping to pet her:
A lot of people bring their dogs to the market, also.  Boots has met lots of new friends.
I love that she is so friendly with other dogs.  She really has never met one that she didn't like.  Big, small, it doesn't matter to her, she just wants to play.  :)
We've been enjoying our Wednesdays at the market.  We get to be out in the beautiful weather, meet lots of very nice people and talk about the horses (and of course, Piper!).  So many people have no idea about the plight of the PMU mares and foals....  Boots and I are happy to help educate people and bring some awareness.

If you are in the area, the market is located in Green Valley off the Esperanza exit just west of the freeway.  It runs from 10 -2pm every Wednesday.  There are quite a lot of vendors with a nice selection of goods.  Our booth is located toward the back of the market.  Stop by and visit!  I do have my jewelry on display and, as always, will donate a portion of each sale to Equine Voices to help the horses.

Happy Rottie Wednesday!  I

Bunny Monday

Our days are running together lately!  This week is starting out well.  The weather is beautiful so the bunnies were able to go in their outside casa this morning to hang out.  Boots joined them for a game of hide and seek:

Boots:  "Found you Bully!"
Oh hey, water... don't mind if I do.  (Bully:  "ugh, dog slobber")

Ginger: "Where did that darn dog go?"
Boots:  "I know they're around here somewhere..."
"Come out, come out, wherever you are..."

Happy Bunny Monday.  Have a great week everyone.  :)

Cowgirl Wisdom on a Monday Morning

I haven't posted one of these little gems in awhile.  This one seemed fitting to me for what's been going on in my life lately.  I'm heading in a new direction with my jewelry business and things have been really coming together --- new selling venues, lots of interest in my designs and new opportunities presenting themselves to me almost daily.  It IS exciting...and not knowing what's coming next is part of the fun.  I'm just going to roll with it and expect that those unknown "things" will all be good. 

Have a great week everyone!

P.S.  The bunnies all say hello, taking a little break from Bunny Sunday this week.  It's hard work being in demand.  :)
