Hi everyone, sorry I have been missing for a few week, but we have been so busy here!  As you all know we have some guests move in for about 6 months and it is a big change for us emptynesters and a big change for the poor doggies!  There is no such thing as quiet time!

We have baby furniture again...we haven't had any in this house for years, since our youngest is going to be 20.
The doggies spend there time under or around the table 3 times a day since my grandson thinks its funny to drop food, so now the doggies are banned from the dining room until after meal time, otherwise I will have some pretty fat, unhealthy dogs in 6 months!  That's pretty much all for now, gotta run!  Theres always so much to do when you have kids and dogs in the same house.
Papa is such a good bedtime story teller

We had this great life after the 5 kids moved out.  After years of raising children, there was some ME time and I could come and go as I pleased.  I got a few doggies (OK, six ), the kids and grand kids would visit and go home...I just gotta say again it was great!  But to make along story short.....we have kids again.
My daughter, her husband and 2 children (and cat) needed a place to stay for 6 months while they wait on there new house and while it may take a little getting used too,( it could be a long 6 months, or a short 6 months) I'm sure we will have great memories, (once its over).
The dogs already got the baby figured out!  They know if they wait long enough she will drop something.  Id be scared if I seen 5 dogs surround my chair while I was eating!

Playtime for the doggies is all day now
And the pups have to share there chair and there daddy!
So yes, we will all be adjusting (and the poor cat will have to get used to dogs chasing her) and gramma will have to give up her FREE time for now, but for these cute faces I would give up anything!(except the hubby or the doggies, or the other kids)

We had no rain all summer, I mean NO yeah, I guess we did need a bit.  Especially to keep the dust of the gravel and limestone in the dogs area  from looking like we were having a dust storm every time one of the dogs ran on it!  Two days worth of rain isn't our idea of fun though with 6 dogs.
Our dogs are spoiled...rotten!  The only time they would like to go outside without me is the early morning bathroom run...5am.  I have stood out in countless thunderstorms, pouring rain showers and winter blizzards...cause the dogs INSISTED I do that or they weren't going either.  How did we ever get to this point!  This is how I spent my weekend folks......
It seemed like every time I would manage to talk them into going out, it would rain a little harder and they would all run back to the door.  I, of course, was left standing there, by myself, trying to coax 6 dogs to "get down here and do your business"!  My red twins gave me this attitude.....
I believe they were telling me that they WERE NOT leaving that spot to go no where that it wasn't dog friendly and well,Sebastian, he pretty much stuck his nose up at me too!  Man, theirs nothing worst than being snubbed by a dog!
So  that's how I spent my weekend.  I thought many times...."a little help here hubby"
SURE, that's gonna happen!

Can you believe that it is October and the thermometer said this...
Yes your seeing that was a beautiful fall day!  How about a little fall fun!

How about a little stick chewing....or
digging threw the leaves that mom just raked and spreading them all over again...or
doggie football
a little refreshment for mom(hehe)
Moscato anyone?
Then the sky turned dark
and this happened.....
Yes, we had a cold front come threw, but we sure had a great autumn day!

I have to say, we are some pretty lucky pups!  First we get the new bed  that was amazing to sleep on in the cool and we get this new fuzzy, warm cover for it so we can be warm and cozy for winter
Yup, that me on there!  Doesn't that even look warm?
Thanks parents!  Oh and one more thing....
Our favorite girl in the WHOLE WORLD came for a sleepover, she really likes our fuzzy cover too!  Now doesn't that make you feel warm and fuzzy all over?
