How about ice skates?  or an igloo - thats a tough one.  Iron = boring.  I know, anyone have an Irish Setter they can let Anakalia's daughter borrow!!!   ;)

Those are awesome!!!!  Considering we don't have kids yet, I was thinking of doing a Christmas card with Riley and the kittys, but my family has warned me that they will all think I am a crazy lunatic for doing that and that it will be so embarassing blah blah blah.    :-\  (Nobody in my family really has any pets)  Just the other day, hubby's aunt and uncle were over yapping about, "have you heard of all the dogs attacking little children??  What are you gonna do when you have kids?  What if their allergic??"  I'm so sick of it, I don't pay attention anymore.   I think I just may do the Christmas card to drive everyone crazy!!   ;)

Thats a great shot of Zeus!  I love it when they get all Snaggle-toothy-Elvis!  Riley does it all the time, although I don't have a pic ot it!  :D

Heres pictures of the kittys.

We use Riley's nickname more than his real name most of the time - its BUBBA.  Lots of variations:  "Bubba-bear", "Bubsy", "Bubs", "Bubster", "Rubble-D-Bubbles", "Rubble-Bubble-Dubs"!  There is also "Ry-Dog", "Riley-Bear", "The Beast", "The Cracken", "The Monster" and "B*stardly"!!!  ::)

Jojo the bengal kitty's nicknames:  "Joje", "Jiggles", "Jiggy-Jiggy", "Jiggety-Joje" "Jigglestein" and "Evil"  ;D

Pudding the black kitty's nicknames are:  "Poo", "Little Poo", "Pudd", "Secret Squirrel" and last but not least:   :D  "Puddence Von-Puddington - of the Baltimore Puddinshires" 

...I know, we're a little nuts!   ;D


Here are a couple of Riley's nose shots from when he was a puppy - He doesn't have the little white spot anymore!

Hey everyone, I need some advice.  Before Riley, I've never owned a dog, so I don't know if this is normal or not.  A couple of weeks ago, we were sitting in the living room and Riley was on the floor next to us.  All of the sudden, we noticed he started licking his nose... excessively and would not stop.  Next thing we know, he is licking the floor/carpet like crazy.  Almost felt like he was trying to swallow or something.  He just kept sticking his tongue out and licking his nose non-stop.  I tried giving him some water, but this didn't really help.  He did this for like 5-10 minutes then stopped.  That was the last of it, so I wasn't worried BUT he did this again a few days ago.  And now its been 3 nights in a row and I'm freaking out.  What could this be?  Should I call a vet???  :'(

Yes, good fences make good neighbors. Here in Calif. almost all of us have fenced yards but when I visit the east coast it is often completely open between houses. It looks nice but I do not know how people live without some privacy? Their dogs really can't run.

That is so true!  In Boston, there are lots of houses without fences.  Before the fence, our yard was completely open with both next door neighbors as well as the 2 back neigbors - both of which had dogs too.  One of them was a mean old lab that would ALWAY bark at Riley for no reason.  I even saw him wander into our yard  and pee and poo once - all while his owner was in their backyard - it was that day that I said to my hubby - WE ARE GETTING A FENCE!  :)

After a half and hour trying to convince him that we didn't need to go outside, I relent and drag my sick butt (still in pajamas) to sit on the deck chair and watch him play. Did I mention I have a 101 degree fever and am wrapped in a blanket at this point???

Man, that dog has it made!!!

Wow Kizmet is one lucky dog!  Can't wait to go home and let Riley out!

I just had to share the exciting news!  We just had our new wooden fence installed yesterday and for the first time this morning, we let Riley out without a leash!!!  He was sooo excited, running around the entire yard!  It was great!  Now the only thing is trying to get him back in!  We were almost late to work this morning cause we couldn't get him back in the house! :) 

Sidenote - Twice last week (once with me, once with hubby), after he was done doing his business, I unhooked the leash about 5 feet from the back door.   In my instance, I opened the back door and called him in...  he just stared at me and waited for me to make a move.  As soon as I took a step toward him, he dashed through the walkway to the front of the house.  I knew if I chased him, he would run, so I picked up his food bowl and after a few minutes, he followed me thank God!  Unfortunately in my husband's instance, he made the mistake of chasing him and chased him halfway down the street.  Luckily there was a couple outside with their little mojo that distracted him and we caught him. 

This is why I am so psyched to have a fence!
