SPRING ~YES ~ IT IS HERE!!!


As the sun sets in the west over the marshlands
not more than a stone's throw away
I sniff and sniff my garden trails
looking for anything 
left from this winters long smothering of whiteness, cold and bitter winds.


But all I can find are my croci


which blend into the bank heading to the garden shed


Jim and I are concentrated on our own interests for sure


mine is more animal / bird oriented
while Jim's photography has grabbed his attention


The perkiness and vivid colours of these croci
seems to encourage us


 as we stroll
picking up debris
brushing things aside 
noticing lots of changes


I do enjoy my time as I completely scour 
every nock and cranny 
because crows drop things you know,
yummy things!!!

PS: FOR NOW 
~ THE WORD VERIFICATION ~
 HAS RETURNED BECAUSE OF ANNOYING SPAMMERS. 
ONE GETS TIRED OF THEIR GREEDINESS AND DISRESPECT, SO 

"OFF WITH THEIR HEADS" 

AS SAID IN ALICE IN WONDERLAND.

'NOT' MY KIND OF EASTER BONNET


Sporting head paraphernalia
or in this case neck paraphernalia
just isn't what I expected this spring.


Conehead / Coneneck
(be kind OK!)


With all this being said ~
I'm very good with all the rigmarole involved


The plastic tabs connecting the cone are a pain in the butt
(which has a double entendre)
but I stand so very still,
treats work well with this problem.


While I sport my temporary Conehead
Jim sports his handmade socks
made by a friend's Mom,
nice and warm they are.


Such is my life for awhile 
just a giant cone 
with a loving Doodle
waiting to be released.


Right now I rest and snooze
waiting for my infected lady parts to heal.
I may not like the Conehead look
but I do sense it's supposed to be a good thing!

HORSES GET ME EXCITED


My Guys are coming to pick me up at
Country Critter Sitters.


Greetings from Atticus, Suki and the cement doggy,


 just makes the end of my day seem pretty ideal.


Poor Atticus is blind but can hold his own without any hesitation,


even if the horses are nearby


with their eyes and noses on everything.


Mary points out that the winter wasn't favourable this year 
with lots of repairs needed


and Topaz agrees wholeheartedly


because Topaz can get feisty and super excited


which in turn gets me all discombobulated


Holy Gees that's one powerful animal


I'm outta here!


One more Doodle try!


Help me Momma!
Look at those hooves!
I'm not into the 2-step right now!


On the other side of the building is Tallen,
so much more calm and reserved.


and Tony, The Pony a brand new resident.
I'll just be super friendly with them I guess.


Thanks Mary for taking care of me again.
I think it's time to go home and snooze.


I always feel safe and protected
when I stay at Mary's
and 
news has it 
I'll be visiting every Friday.
That should help with making new friends for sure!

TRIPLETS OF DOODLEVILLE


OK, 1st we get the sniffing over with ~~~ 


then we EYE Mr. Orangie


I charge off after the illusive Mr. Orangie


checking back wondering where my BEAUTIES have disappeared to


Ah Ha ~~ here they come


a quick THANK YOU 
to the TRIPLETS Daddy for being here 


Now it's time to PLAY


and TEASE


with 2 against 1
because #3 was a senior feller


but my jaws hold Mr. Orangie very tightly


Hey! 
Do you guys wanna DANCE?


Sitting this one out are you!


OK, I get the drift (pun intended)
You guys know how to play European Golden Retrievers
better than the Doodle Dance.


I know I know 
I was a lot of fun
See you another time!


Gees, those Goldens were so friendly.
I liked them a lot!!

RECIPROCATED LOVE


Such is my life right now!
We are taking care of each other 
because it just feels right and normal.
It's been a tough winter
and
having a snuggle
and 
a hug
helps to make the winter go away.
Excuse us while we have a snooze!

IN THE COMPANY OF ONE CROW ~~~~


We discovered a new 'to us' park on Sunday
called Hemlock Ravine Park.
As we maneuvered the trails hilly, curvaceous and narrow
we rounded this corner and there it was 
A LONE CROW
Do you see it?


OK, normally I totally ignore birds


but this time something came over me


I was possessed leaping 
LICKETYSPLIT
over the bank without a worry in the world.


Get back here ~~ this is not going to be embarrassing 
if I have anything say about it!!


Oh HI!
Were you actually watching me?
CROW?
WHAT CROW?
Nothing here but me and the chickadees!!
