The Cowspotdog Lighthouse

We thought we would share our lighthouse with you - Mom says it is hard to get a good video of it but we think this works okay.

A smell is a smell !

One thing Mom loves about walking at this time of year all is the wonderful smells there are, cinnamon ferns, native sages and mints, lemon balms, lemon grass, peppermint - there are just so many and you can not help but breath in deeply as you go - personally though nothing beats the smell of good pee mail, deer droppings or racoon poop and that dead bird - it was blissful ! All depends on your point of view and level of your nose we guess :) :)

Moms Happy Plant

So the Mom was wandering around a gardening center today when she smelled something wonderful in the air and after moving some plants around she found it - a Double Tahitian Gardenia. Mom had never seen or heard of this type of Gardenia before but dog oh dog - what a glorious perfume it has and the flowers are huge ! We wish we had smell-a-blog so you could all enjoy it with us.

A rough week

It has been a rough week for the Mom - she got a really bad cold a week ago and it just hasn't wanted to leave - even today she is still coughing and snuffy and she says her head feels like there are sledge hammers being banged around inside of it. Added to that, MY laptop died - it was pretty old and I had typed so much on it that the letters were worn off the keys and some of the keys didn't even work anymore. The final straw was on Saturday when I went to turn it on and NOTHING happened! Thankfully Mom in her cold induced wisdom had realized it wasn't working properly for a few weeks now and had backed everything up on a portable hard drive.  So on Saturday Mom and Dad bought ME a nice new laptop and within 2 hours I had everything back up and running - it is a good thing I am such a technologically savvy doggie..

The moving bench

So Mom decided she didn't like the new bench out the front our house and even Dad admitted he was worried it might get dognapped so they moved it around the back and put it on MY deck - I must admit it makes a very nice addition and is perfect for relaxing on and doing a little squirrel watching from. And see that big green pot on the right - it is one of two that Mom has and both are gardenia bushes that are just covered with flower buds at the moment - she says she can't wait until they start opening so she can sit on the deck and enjoy the beautiful perfume. I sure hope she is planning on bringing her own chair because the bench is taken!

Guiding Light

Mom says we will NEVER have to worry about finding our way home now because we have very own guiding light. This is the Cowspotdog Lighthouse and YES - it actually works and has a flashing/rotating light in the top that is solar powered. Thankfully we get so much sunshine here in Florida that I stays on all through the night.

Watching the world go by

We have this odd little garden at the front of our house - well it looks like a garden but actually it is just some pine mulch on top of concrete - so Mom decided that seeing how we couldn't plant anything there we might as well make some other use of it. Dad hunted around and found this wonderful little seat with planter boxes on each side and now we get to sit out the front of our house - watching the world go by.

Guard Duty

Here we are hard at work - doing guard duty under the bird feeder tree - keeping those pesky tree rats away. Life is tough - but someone has to do it - right?

Pudding cup pup

You might have been wondering where I am - well I am still here but I am on house arrest because I have a jippy leg at the moment and scary Mr Vet said I have to rest up for a few weeks. Having a jippy leg has it benefits though - I get to have yummy Frosty Paws Pudding Cups that have my medicine mixed in them.

The ears have it :)

When I was a young pup I went through one of those 'stages' ears up, ears down, one up and one down and so on. Mom has always wondered what I would look like if my ears had stayed up - well thanks to a nice windy day she doesn't have to wonder anymore - I look ADORABLE!

Ready and Waiting

Why is it that Mom's take  FOREVER to get ready for a walk - I slips on my boots and harness and I am done but the Mom - she has to make a tea, brush her hair, find her sunglasses, grab her purse and look for the car keys - my dogness a guy might as well make himself comfy while he waits!

Weekend Wonder

We got up early again yesterday morning and dragged the peeps down to the beach to watch the sun rise - it was so worth it as it was awesome !

Say it isn't so.....

Mom has really flipped this time - she has actually started encouraging the evil arch enemy of all us doggies (tree rats - other wise known as squirrels)  to come and visit our yard - not only visit though - she is even providing them with a smorgasbord of yummies to nibble on - what the dog !!!!! We must admit though - it is quite entertaining for us - we sit and wait on MY deck watching and as soon as they come near the feeder - the chase is on !!!!

Bird Brained

 Living with a wooded preserve behind your house means you have LOTS of birdies singing and visiting and of coarse Mom being the soft touch she is just HAS to make sure they don't go hungry so over the last few weeks more and more bird feeders have started appearing in MY tree. Last week when my Princess Katie was visiting her Dad bought Mom a backyard guide to Florida birds - needless to say Mom has now become obsessed trying to figure out what species are visiting. Her favorites so far have been the cardinals, blue jays, mockingbirds and the yellow rumped warbler who sings his little heart out all day long. Sigh - expect to see more pictures of the dumb birds appearing on this blog soon - if she is ever quick enough to catch them :) :)

Sunrise Sunday

We woke Dad up nice and early this morning and told him he had to come with us to the beach and watch the sun rise. I must admit I felt a little sad not having my beautiful Princess Katie with me - but having Dad there was special too as he had been in Wisconsin all of the past week and I missed him. There wasn't a lot of color this morning but it was still pretty and we enjoyed ourselves and we  got to see LOTS of dolphins playing and fishing.

Being Up Front

As many of you know - being the ones that take all the photos the Mom's rarely appear on our blogs as they are always behind the camera and not in front of it........but while Katie's Mom was visiting she was able to get many candid shots of Mom - so here is MY Mom :) Now you may also notice Mom is rugged up in all these pictures - that is because this past week it has been cold in the mornings (40-50 degrees) and warm in the afternoons (75-85 degrees). We always go out in the early morning as we furbabies prefer it cooler even if Mom doesn't :)
