And so it begins...

We had our (almost) annual Christmas card picture taking fiasco this weekend. It started out well enough, three pawsome dogs, bling, leashes and the flashy beast. So far so good.  We went to a nice botanical garden, but it was so busy She didn't think we would be able to focus on our glamour shots, so we ended up driving around for 87 hours and finally settled on the area around city hall. Nice big tree, not many people. Perfect! For about 5 minutes. Braeden transformed from mild mannered Scottie to obstinate donkey, Riley had to inspect each tree, shrub and blade of grass, and Seth escaped from his collar. Mom and the human sis looked ridiculous trying to hold onto two disinterested doggies while chasing down a third who had absolutely no interest in "stay." And "GET HIM!" probably didn't help the situation. Anyway......

They managed to take 139 (actual number) pictures of us, all of which are pretty much deserving of lining for Charlemagne the guinea pig's cage.



This one may end up on our card...it's one of the best ones. Don't laugh. We are the definition of Keystone Cops.


This is Charlemagne. He's a rescue, too. But that's another story. And this isn't his blog.

Help! Can't Post Pictures!

We thought we were back on track with our blog, but it seems we can no longer upload pictures. We are on a Mac, and can't upload from our Photos library.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how to correct this problem? We spoke to Mac Support, and they had us do a bit of maintenance, and assured us we would be back in business, but we aren't. We appreciate any help you can give us. Thanks!

Helloooooooo





                         Hello Blogville!!! Remember me?

I told Mom if she would just post SOMETHING I would be happy. Maybe I can talk her into blogging again!

Hey Blogville!

Aroooo everyone! We finally managed to get Her off her tail and at least let everyone know we are still around. We've been busy helping Mom with the yard and the house after the much needed, but not that much, rain! Now it's just H-O-T and the ground is already beginning to crack. Gotta love Texas weather!

We're all doing pretty well. Riley has made some progress with his allergies. He's on a limited ingredient diet and taking fish oil supplements and surviving water torture once a week. The fur on his legs is beginning to grow in, but he still chews occasionally. Thanks to everyone for the suggestions and well wishes. About the time Riley had the allergy stuff going on testing started at school and things just seemed to pile up. She apologizes for not responding to everyone, but wants you to know that we read every comment and suggestion and you guys were very helpful!

We're just gonna post a few pics. No big news (that's good, right?) Thinking of all of you!


Seth had great fun digging up the yard. This is one of many holes he managed to accomplished. He did have a goal…get the moles. Mom isn't sure who is doing more damage. I vote Seth.




Chocolate dipped Scottie!


Then the yard work began…this is us, ummm, helping. Yeah, that's it!


Braeden snoopervising as usual. Seth searching for more moles. So far he has yet to catch one. And the yard work continues. This week we planted 17 yards of grass. New shrubs and flowers are on the horizon!


And finally….duckies! A very uncommon sight!

Happy Thursday!

P.S. Don't tell anyone, but we snuck out and took the Blogville firetruck for a spin. What a ride!

Allergies - Yikes!

Hi guys! Riley here. Mom needs a bit of help. We haven't done much posting in a while, mostly because Braeden and I have been in and out of the dogtor's office so many times in the last couple of months She just couldn't keep up.

Anyway, I know some of you have allergies, and I've joined the ranks. After lots of tests, they discovered I have FOOD allergies, of all things! I'm allergic to beef, eggs, flax and sweet potatoes! I'm now on a limited ingredient food, which seems to be helping some BUTT I decided to feast on acorns and twigs in the yard and ended up in the hospital with gastritis. *sigh* We got that under control, and even though they were reminded several times about the food allergies, they (the V-E-T) gave me some bland food to eat for about a week afterwards. Guess what was in it? Yep, BEEF and EGGS! When the Peeps figured it out, they quit feeding it to me, but I had already done a number on my leg furnishings. The problem is, I keep pulling the hair out and my back legs are bald!

So, we have a few of questions…

If you have allergies, what do your Peeps do to relieve the itching?

Do you have to take lots of baths?

Do you have to eat "special" food, too?

Do you use coconut oil, or any other types of supplements to help with your skin and fur? If you put it on your skin, how does your Peep keep you from licking it off?

If you do use supplements, are they topical or do you get them with pill pockets, or on your food?

Do you have any suggestions for my Peeps to keep me from chewing and scratching and ripping my hair out?

Any info you can give the Peeps is appreciated! I'm wearing them out with the ripping and chewing.


This photo was just the beginning. I am now hairless on both back legs. And I've started on my chin. I will be a sad looking Junior Officer if They can't get this under control. And I need to look good in my cap and badge!
