Birthday post…(it’s late because of my mom)

So the day before Thanksgiving was Miss Lilly’s birthday! Yes I know I am extremely late in posting this and have been told about it!

Birthday girl 🎉

She wants everyone to know that she had a good birthday despite having to share treats with her little brother Oliver. She got a new sleepy blanket , treats and her own double-double.

Do I have to share these?

She has also graciously decided to forgive me for not writing this post sooner. Although more treats were needed to persuade her to do so.


Just a little update!

Sorry we have been missing this summer but we were very busy! Mr. Oliver is growing like crazy and already outweighs his sister!

Miss Lilly is still not overly excited about having a little brother but she is starting to warm up to him a little bit.

For anyone wondering Miss Lilly is still in charge around here and ordered a new sleepy chair since she has to put up with a little brother all the time.

She still has plenty of attitude also! Oliver is NOT allowed anywhere near her chair!!

But like I said Oliver is trying very hard to win her over . He finally got her to let him walk beside her recently. He was sooooo happy!

So that’s it for now, hope everyone is having a great summer! 🐾❤️

Winter basset print

The elusive winter Basset paw print

So in the last week we have acquired at least two feet of snow that we didn’t have before. I was able to capture a print from the elusive winter basset who normally hibernates during this type of weather. Hopefully I can get a glimpse of it when it emerges again! Stay warm everyone!

New guy in town..

Oliver Lee

So, a few weeks ago this new little guy showed up at my house! I was not very impressed with the decision to bring him here but I was overruled. ( followed by comments like you’ll get used to him)

I’m not moving…

The little runt has taken up position directly in front of the food service area and refuses to move until fed. This also displeases me since this is actually my food service area! ( his is in the dining room!) However it has worked to my advantage occasionally by scoring us extra treats, mom is a sucker for two sad faces pups.

I’m just gonna nap here..

Whatever the case may be , I am told he is remaining permanently and I should try to be a good big sister. I have recently allowed him to play with me for a few brief moments, but I remain firm that he will not join me in my sleepy chair…that is off limits…no negotiation.

He’s not touching my chair.

Dog days of summer..

It’s too hot to move mom..

So this is how I have been spending most of my summer in between torrential rainstorms with a few hailstorms mixed in. When it’s not raining it’s just too hot for a pup to get motivated.

My lounger for my back yard napping 😴

I do however venture occasionally from my front porch lounger to my back porch lounger just to mix things up a little. Hope everyone is having a good summer and staying safe out there!

A note to winter…

Dear Winter,

I was sort of ok with you around Christmas time so that the big guy in red could deliver my presents, however I think you may be overstaying your welcome. While you do make everything look pretty it’s hard for those of us with short leg issues to maneuver in you while taking care of business if you know what I mean… please return the sun to us and be on your way. I sort of look forward to seeing you next winter. Sincerely, Miss Lilly
