Ashley Pumpernickel

This is Ashley Pumpernickel, our new askal. right now she lives next door, but she will be moving in on June 29.  Meanwhile, Ashley has been visiting us so she can get acquainted with our home, and with our big dogs. Ashley is a bit of an introvert. She likes to burrow under blankets, between pots, under the bed, under chairs.  Very unlike winnie who was rambunctious from the beginning. Ashley is also pleasantly fat.
This is ashley, exploring the digs. Yes dear, I know it is all so new to you. But we can't wait to keep ya!!!!

You could also say fabulosi

You see here not 1, not 2, but FIVE fabulous women (part of a fabulous larger family)

Not too long ago

There were 3 women who were not afraid to look silly in hats. because secretly they knew they were fabulous.

Bye Manong

So soon after we lost eugene, we lost manong one week later. he was 44. he always smiled, all day and like eugene, was everybody's friend. he knew everything happening at the office. and that was okay, because he also had the answers to anyone's questions. he always seemed so happy and content, and that could be infectious. that's oda behind him...

Hope it's not too dark

When we first got winniechurchill we thought she was a boy. that's why we initially called her winstonchurchill.

Very Pleasant

Winniechurchill has grown too large for me to cuddle in the way i did when she was a pup. so now i have a new way of holding her. while watching hugh laurie on youtube, she sits on my lap and i play her like a guitar. a dog guitar. she gets the cuddles she likes, i get her warmth without the licks on my face ( be overdone by dogs now and then). it can really be rather pleasant. if you have a big dog, i would recommend you give it a try.

My niece Kara Patricia has devoted her life to taking care of troubled children, and she has done wonderful work in following her heart and her passion. She also appeared in a TV commercial in the US, she plays the nurse in the colorful blouse, talking about how the product can help to save lifes. So very her....

Kara, we love you!!!!!!

Terrie Bear, I hear you

"I don't want mom's nose, I don't want her feet. I don't want parts, I want mom!!!!!" When i told that to mom, she laughed and gamely posed for these pictures.
Mom with nurse Ruth and the hubby Ed.

Full body shot of mom, side view.
half body. Mom sleeps and wakes, sleeps and wakes. Like the weather in Boston, if mom sleeps, wait a minute.
Er...give it 5 more minutes.
So Ed watches television while she falls asleep watching television....
And i pose with her and she smiles, even with her eyes closed. She is perfectly aware of what is being said and done around her, even as she sleeps.

The Gap

Now that Kat is in college, i come home to a quieter place. As soon as Ed gets me (usually near midnight) from work, he is eager to get to sleep, and Kat is already sleeping. That's because they both wake up early so he can take her to school. And when i wake up, she is gone.

so it's me and the dog much of the time. like now, Winnie runs around the house on 3 feet (she sprained a leg) then curls down at my feet. so i'm seriously thinking of a house full of dogs. i told Ed we could be the brad pitt and angelina jolie of dogs....
