Telling a Story in Pictures

You can see what I’m doing today. Baby is talking to Tanner. Then she reaches out to pet him. When she pulls her hand back, he rests his chin on the box, and she smiles. She adores the havanese and they adore her.

I’m now putting her in the room where they sleep so she’ll nap better. They kept going in there to check on her. So I put them in their crates nearby to nap too, and everyone’s happy. When she woke the first time, she looked up to see where she was, and saw Max in his crate nearby, Tanner a little further away, and for the first time she didn’t cry when waking from a nap. She’s sleeping again, so we’ll see if this is a success, but both times, she’s slept for about an hour instead for a few minutes. So that part is definitely a boon.

Have a great one!!

More Snow Pictures in Spring!

These are Havanese tracks in the snow. 🙂 See? I can track a Havanese, just like that. *Snaps Fingers*

Snow on the fountain–captured after most of the snow melted. Would have liked to get one earlier before it had, but was taking care of baby. Snow comes here anywhere from once every 15-30 years, sooooo, that’s why it’s such a big event. I know for those in snow country, they’re amused. But some around here have never seen snow before!

I’ve been in a blizzard skiing, not good, but it came up and I had to come down. Do you know how hard it is to ski when you can’t make out the horizon? Everything looks…white. There’s no mountain, no slope, just…white.  I was by myself too. Not my fault. But I took more spills trying to come down off the mountain when I couldn’t see the slope for the snow.

And we lived in Wisconsin when I was a kid and my dad carried me to the bus stop because the snow was so high. Was in a blizzard in Amarillo, Texas, well, several, trying to make my way home from work to Canyon, and couldn’t tell where the centerline was, the shoulder, or what I was really driving on. I was in another in St. Louise for Thanksgiving one year on my way to share Thanksgiving with my boss’s family when I was on Army duty, and really didn’t think I was going to make  it.

We always built a snow fort, had snow fights, and built a snowman in Oklahoma, couldn’t get out of my parking lot in Maryland after I finally made it home in the snowstorm, and in New Jersey, didn’t think I’d make it home in the snowstorm mixed with ice, when they had early release for everyone but the military.

And yet, I see snow, and it’s a thrill. Not like if I had to live in it for several months of the year though.

I’m in Everipedia!

Okay, I’m off to finish a bear for an order! Have a great day! I’m still trying to come up with a story  idea for the polar bear story!

The Woods…

The original woods and then the fun versions using Topaz Labs. I had the baby over and sometimes while she’s sleeping, I can play with photos, but trying to do much of anything else is hard. We do a lot together and have fun though.

If I were writing about the woods, looking at the different pictures, it would evoke different moods for the story. Everything is a picture to me. I wrote 1,000 words last night after baby went home, and when I went to bed, I was thinking of another scene. I could see the Highlanders being angry with the encroaching clan, swords drawn, words spoken.  I was too tired to write it down, and that usually means I forget it by the time I wake up. But, thankfully, I still remember it, so will start with it first thing this morning.

I’m really at the end of the story, so I need to finish it up.

Oh, and so far, it looks like I don’t have a rat problem any longer. Max killed one of them. He’s the white one and so fast. Both Havanese are. They shoot out of the house like bullets, so I have to warn birds before I allow the dogs to leave the house. They’ve caught 3 birds, but that was before I started making them sit before I allow them to leave. They didn’t kill them, but caught them, and I made them release them, then I carried them out front so they could recover and they flew off.

The rats only come out at night, so last night and this morning in the dark, they would be on the feeders. I turn on the porch light and release the dogs. Last night there were none. And none this morning. So I might have found a natural deterrent. 🙂

Off to write!!! Have a wonderful day!

Christmas Lights and Havanese

My poor puppies have to put up with a lot. First, it was Halloween costumes. Now…this.

Tanner, the one on the left, loves to pose for pictures. Max would rather sit on my lap and get lots of loving.

So after I went to pick up the lights on the floor, Max headed for the hills (or, under the dining room table.) Tanner was wagging his tail at me, ready for more photos. He is the perfect little model. 🙂 ❤ Of course, I praised Tanner and laughed at Max and he came running out to greet me. No more photo shoots for the day.

Have a fun Sunday. I’m off to write some more.

Purple and Orange…

I love purple and orange, so Lilac bear is ready for Halloween, and Max is like, okay, take the picture of me in this ridiculous lion’s hat and get it over with already. First, it was a pumpkin on my head. Then Momma turned me into an Ewok. And then the lion drama. Now she’s dressing the bears she made and poor baby. She’s always dressing her. You’d think we were all doll babies. Ugh.

Yep, it’s picture time!

Have a fun day!!!

Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

My Havanese loved the St Bernard and barked at him to run along the fence with them. They ran back and forth, back and forth, then they took breathers and checked each other out again. He was such a mellow fellow, and he’s just a puppy. If the fence wasn’t there? They’d probably have been afraid of him.

He inspired me to add him to Flight of the White Wolf, which is coming out next year.

Have a great one!!

Super Dogs Ready to Save the World

Halloween dogs 900 castle 041

I took the picture of both the castle steps and the dogs, but not on the castle steps. 🙂

Super Dog, Wonder Dog, a Navigator, and a Pirate, they’re gathered at the castle for the big mission.  Drums are beating. Horns are blaring. It’s nearly time. And they’re ready.

I have to tell you my daughter and I had quite a time getting them all to stay put. 🙂 ❤ And Sir Rilo, top dog, though he’s a beta, is up on top, which made it perfect. Wonder Dog, the real alpha of all of them, was keeping my two in line. They were only a year old at the time. Max and Tanner had to sit together. And here, they’re wondering about the mission.

And that’s the story. I hope their mission goes well.

I hope your day does too!
