Hi there! We are BACK!

Hallo, sweet readers! Boy, one can really get used to not thinking about blogging at all, but your lovely, inquiring emails about our well being, and whereabouts were enough to stir me back in the right direction. Since September is back to ... (insert the appropriate word here) month, I thought why not go back to blogging, it's now or never. So here we are. I've got lots of photos to share, so during the coming weeks I'll blog more often to catch you all up, on what I've been doing, and the pups of course, which are all well and accounted for. Here we go:

August 26-Happy and Moni -4-smiley
Happy takes his "alone time" with me quite seriously. Whenever I'm in the pool, and he's allowed in as well, he uses me as a island. Nothing else will do. I could not lift his 75lbs otherwise. He's quite content in my arms, big baby that he is.
The other two are bared from being outside, while I'm swimming, because of Denny's tendency to "rescuing me", which always comes close to drowning me. Maggie is just keeping him company to give Happy his alone time, he really needs.Oh yeah, and I hate my picture being taken, but I assure you, I'm smiling as wide as Happy does in this picture.

May 23-104
This year we were able to swim starting in May. Never before. We put up a puppy gate at the stairs, so we could keep the pups from jumping in when we didn't want them too. Somehow they thought the only way into the pool is through the stairs. I'm glad they don't know that it's possible to jump right in too.

Maggie and Denny: What do you think? Is it warm enough to go for a swim?

Maybe later.

I'm sure this is the way in, says Maggie.

May 23-107
Not! It's this way, says Denny.



May 23-111
Aaah, yes! Still cold though.

Well, that was a long Hallo! I hope you are all well, and enjoying your summer, which will be over sooner rather than later.

How lovely to see you and your pups again. I love Happy's goofy tongue and I think he needs alone time with you, away from his demanding siblings. How funny that they don't know they can jump in, I love their doggy debate about what to do!! I missed you and your dogs and your knitting, welcome back!!!

Welcome Back, Monika!! So glad to see your return and to see the pups, as well. I've missed your blog posts so much! Can't wait to see what you have been knitting!

Walden said...

Glad you are back! Looks like you had some fun water time. I have to admit, I laughed when you explained why Denny wasn't allowed in the pool with you. Ah, the best of intentions. :)

Virginia Watson said...

YAY! Glad you're back!

The pups are hilarious, as usual. Love that they don't jump into the pool from the side.

I hope all is well.

hugs!

You inspired me to write a blog post today! Glad to see you back and hope you had a good break. That's too funny that your gang doesn't understand how to jump in the pool from the side but probably for the best.

I'm surprised they didn't figure out they could jump right in. It's probably best, though, that they didn't! lol

Welcome back!
