Amanda and Bambi

Hay my friends, When we had Joker we walked every morning at day break. 7 days a week. Rain or shine, hot or cold. We live on a major highway and until just the last few years there was no sidewalk. So Joker and I walked in the wooded trails in the back of our house. When Amanda came, I started to walk her in the same trails. She did not like the woods!!!!!
She was afraid of the deep woods . So I started to walk her at a park that is about 4 miles away from home. The little lady (and she was a real lady) did not like to get up early!!!! So after a few months we slept in and went to the park about 9ish. The picture of Amanda was taken at that park. Usually we were the only ones there and she walked off leash. She loved the park!!!!

Below is our dog that we have now. She came from the animal shelter here in town. She has been with us for 11 years and 9 months in Nov.5th
Bambi is a squirrel hunter. That is what she is doing, looking for a squirrel.

Below Tom is filing Amanda's nails. Tom files our dogs nails every week. They love to get in Daddy's lap!!!He gets them in his lap and just holds and loves on them for awhile, then turns them over and files the nails. By doing them every week he only has to take a little off at a time.... They love it after the first time.... They do not let him forget!!!
I hope you all have a very good week end!!! Around here we love our week ends!!!
I will see you all on Monday, God willing.....
Love you lots, Bambi and Fern


  1. Have a lovely weekend and enjoy.... Mmmm filing nails sounds a tricky buisness.. Hugs GJ xx

  2. Wow, dad is very good to file the doggie nails. Momma just takes us to the V-E-T for that stuff.


  3. Our Mom wishes we would be so laid back for a nail filing - it takes both Mom and Dad to do ours!! Except for Java - he let's Mom do it -and she needs to do it now.

  8. Hey Fern,

    I've used a Dremmel a couple of times on the dogs' nails; it works great. I don't do it often enough though, and they get so long.

    I decided last minute to go to VA to visit daughter, sister and mom. Having a good time; back tomorrow. Start a new temp job Tuesday; very excited!!
