Catching up

I had mentioned that I had a few canine guests over Thanksgiving weekend but I’m just now getting to Yule’s photos. He makes a good subject as always. Yule did well with Lilly although she is still wary of him. He also spent a little time with Buddy out in the yard a couple times. Yule doesn’t realize what an imposing figure he cuts. Inside he can be a frightened little puppy. Yule is big — part Great Pyrenees — and has a massive head that I love to rub. Scrappy and Lilly form the welcoming committee — loud as…

Full House

Sometimes you just end up with more dogs than you expected. I’ve long known that Yule was coming for the Thanksgiving weekend. That would make just three dogs including Scrappy and Lilly, the full-time residents here. But then Buddy’s parents texted a few days ago to see if I could accommodate Buddy for a few days.

He’s a wonderfully sweet boy who is working on his confidence with…

Shaggy stops by

Shaggy’s Mom brought him with her to HB yesterday. She was feeding the kennel dogs in the morning and didn’t to leave him home due to some construction happening at their house.

I had forgotten how he starts to “purr” when you do that. Shaggy stayed with me for a couple months while undergoing treatment for heartworm. They can’t run or play during this time because the worms…

Yule’s second home

Yule’s Mom, the wealthy heiress, is off traipsing around Europe or Asia or somewhere. It’s hard to keep track of her travels. The most excellent part about these trips is that Yule comes here, his second home. Sadly, I only have him for a few more days after which he must return to his primary home. You mat recall that Yule and Scrappy are best friends. Scrap won’t play with very many dogs. But he’ll play with Yule nearly every day that he’s here. I like to wait out front when I know Yule will arrive soon. I tell Scrappy…
