“Corn Dog” August 22, 2009

Our Golden Retriever, Duke, has become somewhat of a corn connoisseur.

He used to chomp down the corn, cob and all, but recently has perfected his technique to just nibbling off the tender kernels.

Take a look . . .

So, when we enjoy nature’s bounty of fresh corn-on-the-cob, so does Duke!

Do your animals have human-like qualities, too?


Sunday Stroll: Walk with my Valentine/s February 15, 2009

I took advantage of the thaw today to get in a stroll with my Valentines, both the two-legged and four-legged kind!


The wooded trail along the river was beautiful— and mostly without snow today!


Of course, Duke had to stop to take a drink from the brisk, cold river.


We saw some interesting sights along the way . . .



Crossing the covered bridge . . .


Duke stops for another drink with the workhorses, as we stop to feed them.


Buds on the forsythia show the promise of spring.  I couldn’t resist plucking a few to bring inside to force open.  I just love the happy yellow of this early flower!


All in all, it was a great day for a stroll with my Valentine!

To see who else is strolling this Sunday, visit the Quiet Country House.


Hope it was MERRY!!! December 26, 2008

Hope your Christmas was wonderful and that you enjoyed your day as much as Duke did!  He LOVED what Santa left him under the tree!
