May days (& March too)

Days are hot and the water is clear.
Mornings are great for swimming. Puppy G loves it!

Afternoons are made for relaxing.
Miles and Stella lounge on the porch.

Evenings are still cool enough for walks.
Tito on the move!

The pups are getting big -they'll have to be spayed soon.
Twiggy strikes a pose.

Helpxer Ilana will soon be leaving us.
An eerie shot at dusk.


Siblings Jack and Lily are beautiful and shy ...but not camera shy.

 Better late than never, I want to thank Ashley for coming. I don't know how I didn't get your picture...but I'm glad your sister did. Cheers Ash! Come again!

The rest of these shots are from March and were taken by Emily or Ashley.
Miles keeps watch.

Three sisters.

puppy maneuvers

Daisy is back to her happy, playful self!
She and Lucy love the beach.

Isn't Lucy a beauty? Checkout those lashes!

We had a visitor...I think it's called a mapache, but I'm not sure.
My first thought was rabies, but I think it was domesticated and dumped. It seemed inquisitive and wasn't afraid of dogs. I wish I had managed to trap it for a wildlife rehabber, but I'm no Steve Irwin. It had big teeth and I was more concerned about the safety of the dogs. I think this was what Gracie treed few years ago and she still has the scar on her throat to prove it.

If he comes back I'll try to trap him.

As for our own little beasties...
Xmul (pronounced shmool) is a riot and a handful!
Here she takes on Tuesday.

Xmul and Mo (I think).

Wrasslin' with her best pal Daisy.

Coming for the camera!!!

The beach is usually deserted this time of year, perfect for doggy sorties. Chester and Tito in the lead.

The dogs think the best thing about the beach is dead fish to chew on!
(notice Twiggy's cute broken tail in the foreground.)

Finding the fish is easy ...the hard part is keeping it; competition is stiff!

Luna (I think) and her prize.


Luna, her fish, and Daisy.

Mo and Twiggy.

All pups present and accounted for.
