It has been a while, again, since I have logged in to my lap top to update the blog. I think about it all the time and have good intentions, but don’t seem to make the time to get it done. I am hoping to do better in 2015.
We spent Thanksgiving weekend at my Mom’s this year. We had a lovely meal and enjoyed some outdoor time with my Mom and her dog, Jenny. She is a lot of fun and still very much a puppy at her young age of 2. My mom had asked me to take some pictures of Jenny so they could get one framed. At first Jenny was very fearful of my camera but with the help of my my mom and a lot of patience and positive encouragement, she became comfortable and her personality came out.
Below are a few pics I took of this sweet girl.
Then Christmas was upon before too long. The pups seemed to enjoy having dog beds close to the tree.
Pippi and Ziva spent an evening sharing the couch. I can’t remember a time when this has happened with these two girls before. I enjoyed every minute of it.
Pippi put up with me “smothering her” with motherly love.
The pups enjoy their special Christmas treat.
As a gift to myself, I had these pics printed on Canvas. We have one of each our fur kids now. I really love the way they turned out. It is my new favorite way of transforming photos. During cyber week several companies were offering great deals (70% and higher off) making this very affordable!
Our rainbow bridge fur kids: Maggie, Booyah, Misty and KC. Always in our hearts.
Our fur kids who are with us now: Ziva, Cueball and Pippi.
We spent our Christmas with close family. We wouldn’t have it any other way, it was a perfect day!
Mitch and I also were treated to brunch at The Jefferson Hotel. We had a table right in front of the 15 foot Christmas tree. I love this old, historic hotel and it is a must see at Christmas. They decorate it beautifully!
We are looking forward to a fantastic 2015!!

I had a wonderful time checking up on the different hounds in the blog post and the photos! I like the canvas prints!
Happy New Year! Love all your photos. Black dogs are hard to photograph, I bet your Mum was pleased with the photos you took of Jenny! Gorgeous photo of Pippi and Ziva on the couch. Beryl and Asher don’t cuddle on the couch (or anywhere) ever … except during the winter when I once caught Beryl with her head on Asher’s rear end. I’ve got a few canvas prints of my favourite (dog) photos around the house. I love the 70% off deals too 🙂
I always seem to be behind on my blogging these days too. What a great idea. Will have to put my kids pics on Canvas too.
