  1. Oh, Dear!

    We got accosted by a deer while on a walk this afternoon. Apparently deer will attack dogs. The deer obviously could not have cared less about me.

  2. Dog Photos

    It’s been a while since I posted any dog photos. At 9 years old she’s starting to slow down a little, but still goes crazy for chasing the ball at the park and loves her walks. Seems like yesterday I was taking photos of her as a puppy.

  3. Opening the Door

    Our pup used to get somewhat stymied when the door to her crate was closed, but sometime in the last few months she learned to open the door so she can get inside. Smart girl. We still have her go in the crate when we leave, but we keep the door open and she can…

  4. Blizzard

    Yep, it’s been snowing here in Colorado. Yesterday we shoveled about two feet of snow from the driveway to get a car back in the garage. Today, we shoveled another three+ feet of snow from the driveway. Some of that was windblown, but I think it’s safe to say we got a solid 3-4 feet…

  5. Google Calendar Loves “Noon”

    I set up an event in Google Calendar to give my dog (Noonan) a bath. I typed: Bathe Noonan at 9pm into the Quick Add box. Google Calendar saw the ‘noon’ in there and set up an appointment to ‘Bathe an’ at 12pm (noon) and set ‘9pm’ as the location. Kinda funny I guess, since…

  6. First Snow

    I played golf in short sleeves on Sunday – a beautiful fall afternoon. Today, we get our first snow of the season. I’ve talked about the weather more since moving to Denver than I ever did before. Here are a few photos… the dog is completely unfazed by the white stuff.

  7. Bird in the Kitchen

    It was nice out, so I decided to prop open the back screen door so the pup could come and go as she pleased. 15 minutes later, there was a bird in the kitchen, flying into the windows as it tried to get out. Maybe that wasn’t such a good idea after all…

  8. Puppy Photos

    It’s been a while since I posted any photos of Noonan, here are a couple recent shots. She’s doing quite well, though today she seems a bit bored and is coming in to play every 5 minutes or so. I need to go run her a bit a lunch.

  9. Sick Puppy

    My poor pup got sick last night. She doesn’t like thunder storms, so we aren’t sure if it was stress from the thunder storm last night while we were out or perhaps a bacterial thing from swimming in the creek last weekend. Either way, she was one sick puppy last night. The good news is…

  10. I was Run-ning

    Took the pup up to the park today at lunch to run, run, run with an Italian Greyhound named Sophie. Noonan at full speed can keep up with Sophie, but Sophie probably has another gear I haven’t seen yet. Regardless, she’ll sleep well this afternoon. Sophie’s owner is also a photography buff (much more experienced…

  11. Under the Knife

    The pup went in for her population control surgery on Wednesday and we brought her home again yesterday morning. She seems to be doing quite well recovery wise. The incision was about 1.5 inches long and is closed with three layers of internal dissovable sutures – no stitches that need to be removed. Her belly…

  12. Puppy Class Graduate

    The little pup was a champ at her puppy class graduation today. She received the ‘most responsive to commands’ award and she won the the ‘best trick’ category. The winning trick was as follows: Lie down I put a liver treat on each of her paws I tell her to leave it She sits there…

  13. Little Doggie Teeth

    The puppy has lost 3 molars in the last 2 days, and lost one of her canines the day before… we’ve got little doggie teeth flying all over the place.

  14. The Service Bell Debacle

    On a tip from another Aussie owner, we put a service bell by each door and were teaching Noonan to ring the bell when she needed to go outside. This went pretty well the first couple weeks, then she decided that the bells were great toys. Instead of leaving them by the door, she carried…
