10 things about Jayzee RIP

1. We called her Bubbers.
2. She was more than “just” a dog to our family.

3. She loved to sit outside in the hot sun.
4. She was happiest when the kids were home. She would cry when we dropped them off to school.
5. She could catch mice with our cat.
6. She was my lap dog.
7. Gordon ran over her in our SUV and she survived with no broken bones or internal injuries.
8. She would alpha big dogs and sometimes large moose. They would both run from her like she was a giant. She only weighed 12 pounds.
9. Gordon and I have been married 23 years and she was ours for 18 years.
10. She passed away today at the age of 19 years. We love her and will dearly miss her.

winter walking–alaska style

i don’t know about you but i think i am over winter. i am a firm believer in enjoy the seasons as they come but winter is always my challenge. i see pictures on the web of green grass, flowers, gardens being planted and i just can’t help but be a little envious. 

 the best cure for me is to grab the camera and head out in the cold with husband and pups in tow. 

 on a side note summit had surgery last week and had to wear this cone of shame….poor guy.

on the way back i am freezing but feeling much better. i don’t know if it is the exercise, sunshine, or fresh air. i guess i do not care, i am just happy that i am feeling better.
