2017.09.23 -- KODY'S BIG JUMP

I took Kody out to the lake with me.  After a bit of coaxing, he jumped off the end of the dock and swam out to me...

I might have more pics tomorrow.  I'll have to check my phone.




2016.12.15 -- WE'RE HAVING A HEAT WAVE

The thermometer says it is 8° outside.  We might actually hit double-digits!

In other news, Kody found his spot to nap...

2015.04.14 -- ABE SNOW BATH

The snow is melting.  Abe isn't happy about that.  He's more of a winter dog.  He likes to go outside in the middle of the night and take snow baths.  There's a bit of snow left in the ditch that he'll slide around on when we're coming home from a walk...

It was Abe's birthday yesterday. He's still pretty spry for a thirteen-year-old.




2014.04.13 -- ABE'S BIRTHDAY

2014.02.01 -- DOGGY IN THE WINDOW

A couple weekends ago, I pushed about sixteen inches of snow off the roof.  It makes pretty good pile under the eaves.  Abe likes because he can stand on it and look in the living room window...

If I'm sitting on the couch and feeling like teasing him, I'll stand up and wave my arm. When he starts to run around to the back door, I'll sit back down. After a few minutes, he'll be back up on the pile looking in and woof at me.




2013.04.13 -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ABE!

Today is Abe's birthday.  He is eleven.  Kelly made him a hat...

2013.02.24 -- DEEP SNOW

Just a short video showing how deep the snow it...

We have a foot on the ground (and roof) here in Mercer.  There's more like two up in Hurley.




2012.10.22 -- KODY AND THE LEAF PILE

I was raking up some leaves to cover garlic and blueberries after work today.  Whenever I'm outside, Kody wants to play, so I rake-rake-rake, throw the ball, rake-rake-rake, throw the ball.  I threw it into the leaf pile once and he dove right in after it.  He took a while to find it the first time, but got better the more he did it.  I finally went in and got my phone to take a video...

Maybe I should teach him to root out truffles.

When I play the video, Kody looks around trying to figure out what's going on.




2012.05.16 -- SHEDDING

While I planted garlic tonight, Kelly spent half-an-hour brushing the dogs.  It's not the easiest to see in the picture, but all the clumps are hair...

I think if we raked it all up, we could prob'ly make at least one miniature dachshund.




2012.04.13 -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ABE!

Abe got an Alpo breakfast AND a snuggle on his birthday today...

He is now ten years old.




2012.01.29 -- MORE SKIJORING WITH KODY

Kelly took a short video of Kody pulling me...




2011.08.27 -- KODY DIVING FETCH

Kelly's Uncle and Aunt were up for a vacation.  We went over to Grandma's last weekend and showed off Kody's diving skills...




2011.02.12 -- SKIJORING WITH KODY

We went skiing today. Kelly's mom and dad gave me a harness for Christmas for Kody so I can wear him out a little more. I found that if I wait a few minutes to let Kelly and the other dogs get out ahead, Kody will pull pretty hard to catch up to them...
