If there’s one movie you take your family to see this holiday season, make it “Marley and Me.”  If you’re a dog lover–even a little bit–it’s sure to strike a chord with you!

Marley & Me

Two pieces of advice, though:

  1. Arrive early to the show.
  2. Bring tissues!

I wasn’t really expecting it to be a tear-jerker, but by the end when the lights came on, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house–and it was a packed house!

We came home to give our two dogs, Duke and Eddie, a few extra hugs.  Enjoy!

Today, I decided to take advantage of this sunny Sunday (for a change!) and take a walk in the woods.  There is a lot of evidence of all the rains we’ve had, including the green lushness and loads of mud puddles!  My local companions, Duke & Eddie, joined me on the excursion around the farm.

Our "older" Old English Sheepdog, Eddie, makes it as far as the cornfield and decides he's had enough exercise.  He heads back home to wait for us in the shade of the Maple trees.

Duke seems to say, “C’mon, Mom 2!” (That’s what he calls me; it’s a long story!)
