Gone to the birds

Wow, this weekend when we were at the park, we saw so many birds and animal life.

We saw.....

tree swallow
red bellied wood pecker
downy wood pecker
cat bird
water crane
blue bird

...probaby more that we can't think of.

Mom only got these two pics though....

Red bellied wood pecker. He sure did make some pecking noises.

Pair of ducks.

Two shelties, one movement.

Mom also tried to get a cute Easter pic, and this was the best she could get.

We need more motivation.

Happy Birthday Liam

This week would have been Liam's 13th birthday. Our first without him. I still can't believe he has been gone, almost as long as Abby and Aiden have been on this earth. Miss him every day.

He was my sheltie puppy, and always will be.

Watching over his flock.....

Hope you are loved where ever you are. Mommies still miss and love you!

Abby the Assassin's Wrestling Tips

We had a pretty good weekend. Weather was nice, so we spent most of it outside. Mom was working in the garden again, and we helped a bit with digging and redistributing the tan bark. In between our gardening duties, we found some time to do some friendly wrestling.

Abby thinks her technic for putting her brother Aiden in a headlock should be studied for it's perfect form:

pin him down

go for the complete headlock by putting your hind legs into the fur grab

while he is down, make sure to tickle him for full affect

always be on the defense, and don't let him get a leg up, er in the mouth

Aiden says...I let her win. How else can I have some fun?

We saw a new bird at the park this weekend. A tree swallow. From our research, this is one of the first swallows to migrate back during spring. New bird to us! This one followed up through the park for quite a while!

We also saw a tufted titmouse

No squirrels though, sorry Morgan!

Warm Wednesday

Mom came home from work on time (for once) to enjoy the warm weather. She has been working on cleaning out the flower beds in the back yard. We helped a bit, especially chasing the birds away. That was in between frisbie tug and hide n seek. We got to finish off the rest of the rita's italian ice, since it was nice and warm.

Are you sure it is empty???

Recovery and spring

This has been a big week for us. Moms have been stressing for weeks about it, but it is finally done and we are doing well! We finally got spayed and new ters (as Ludo puts it). First two days we were pretty sleepy, but we are pretty perky now. Aiden is really ready to go full force, but Abby isn't quite up to speed yet. They are both doing well though. We took a short walk yesterday in the park. We also had Rita's Italian Ice after the walk, and it tasted really good! Today we went for an even longer walk. Our booboos look really good mom says, only Abby has to go back to get her stitches out next week.

We saw ducks in the park yesterday.

Flowers blooming in our backyard.

Spring, or not!

Wow, what a busy weekend! We went to the park as usual. Yesterday it was sunny, and we saw some robins in the park. Isn't this a sign of spring?

Today we went to the park, and we saw a herd of deer!!!

It also snowed this morning, so we got to run in the yard through that. Guess spring is a little ways off, even with the robin sightings.

Plus, we did some chilling too.
