My goal with this blog is for you to enjoy your time here. Most of the posts talk about my experiences raising my two yellow Labrador Retrievers, some are just for fun, and others share the best dog related information and products I have found.

Use the tabs above for quick navigation. I have imbedded links for as much as possible so that you can find the resources easily from this blog. The links in the side bar are for websites that have been helpful to me. I hope that you find them useful for you and your canine "family member"

Can't a girl get a little privacy ...?

Even the bathroom is not sacred in our house. I'm sure many of you with "fur children" will be able to relate to these photos. At the very least, you'll be able to laugh with me.

"A little privacy would be nice!"

"What did you expect, roses?"

Happy Thanks Giving!!

With two things on my list to take to Thanks Giving dinner tomorrow, I'm cooking most of the day.  The pumpkin pie is in the oven and I have a few minutes to share a photo from this morning.

With a busy day around the house I decided to take the dogs out for a run around 10 am this morning.  Ends up others probably had the day off and were out later then the usual 7 am group with the same idea.  Within 10 minutes a group of 6 dogs were having loads of fun.  It was a beautiful morning with a great group of friendly dogs that we've gotten to know over the last two years.  It was so nice to be able to  relax knowing that the dogs were fine and that it was not as critical to keep them under close watch to avoid any unnecessary squabbles.

Here's a picture of "Shelby" and "Mia" taking a break in the shade of the summer baseball scoreboard.  

Here's wishing you all a Happy Thanks Giving!!

"Unforgettable Animal Actors" & Share Some Link Love!

Now here's some "link love" any animal lover can have fun with.

It was for me easy to come up with a favorite animal actor. I think this was the first movie I ever remember watching on a big screen. It was on the old reel to reel with the 20 min intermission half way through so they could rewind and swap reels. Brings back memories for sure!!

So join in the fun, and leave me a "tail wag" so I can add your favorite "Unforgettable Animal Actor" to my list.

————— Copy and paste this line and below ——————

List your favorite animal actor and let’s share some link love in the process!

Here’s what to do:

1.) Copy and paste the matrix of “Unforgettable Animal Actors” below, courtesy of PetsitUSA.com!

2.) Substitute the Host Tag and one of the “Animal Actors” in the matrix with the name of your favorite animal actor and the URL of your blog, just like I did.

3.) When you get a ping back from someone that has your link in one of their “Animal Actors”, practice good paw by copying his/her Host Tag’s anchor text (automatically the associated link will also be copied) and paste it over one of your “Animal Actors” below.

5.) Encourage and invite your readers to do the same and soon we will have a list of unforgettable animal actors!

Host Tag #8: Old "Yeller" - For the Love of Labradors

1. Mr. Ed - PetsitUSA.com
2. Buddy (from Air Bud) - JohannTheDog
3. Benji (he was a rescue!)- RescueMe
4. Flipper - PawsibleMarketing
5. Pete the Pup -Fuzzy Logic
6. Enzo (from My Dog Skip) - Raise A Green Dog!
7. The Taco Bell Chihuahua - The Poodle (and dog) blog
8. Old "Yeller" - For the Love of Labradors

9. Animal Actor
10. Animal Actor
11. Animal Actor
12. Animal Actor
13. Animal Actor
14. Animal Actor
15. Animal Actor
16. Animal Actor
17. Animal Actor
18. Animal Actor
19. Animal Actor
20. Animal Actor

Important: Once I get a ping back from you, I will add your anchor text and the associated link you designate as “Host Tag” here, and add your favorite animal actor to the list here. As more and more pet and animal bloggers copy and paste this matrix, the more backlinks you will have with your anchor text. If everybody who copies and pastes from your blog does the same, pretty soon this will spread and go viral. (And we don’t have to stop at 20!) So, the sooner you participate, the more links with anchor text you will receive.

There it is folks. This should help you improve your Technorati ranking, SERP and Google PR and get you noticed with more blogs - we all like making friends, right? Please leave a comment here if you have copied from this matrix so that I can add you just in case your ping-back didn’t reach me.

Better late then never ...

I know this is terribly late but I figured it was still worth it anyway. My husband and I with the dogs spent Halloween with my sister and the nephews. Seen as last year I carved a dog and their home is a two cat house I decided to carve a cat on the moon this year. Time wise it was also easier to fit into an already busy evening with kids and parents filling all the extra spaces in the house.

Hope you enjoy!!
