Willfull Wednesday

NO - I don't want my picture taken - I am going to hide behind this tree trunk where you can't see me - it is way to nice to waste time taking pictures!!!!! NOT that we are bragging or anything - but we heard on the news last night that Florida is the only State in the WHOLE USA that doesn't have snow at the moment - they even had snow on the volcano in Hawaii. Today it is a beautiful sunny 70 degrees - perfect for a little beach walkies :)

Casa Felice Sole

Mom decided the front of our new house looked a little plain so she sent Dad on the hunt for something to hang above the garage and he found Mr Chubby Cheeks (as she likes to call the sun)  She love it so much she has now called our house Casa Felice Sole (which is Italian for House of Happy Sun) It doesn't show up well in the photo but our house is a pretty sunny yellow color hense the sun theme.  Personally I think Casa Cowspotdog sounds much better and don't I look so much better sitting out the front?????.

We have been busy helping the Mom decorate and yesterday she finished the final touch - a new painting for our wall. It is made up of six panels with spaces in between and the flowers on the painting match the flowers on the cushions. The paint is a mixture of flat and metallic so is has these splashes of shine which sadly don't show up on the photo. The center of the flowers are also painted in gold metallic paint and some of the flowers have crystals in the middle which shine and sparkle in the light at night time. We dogervised the whole painting and made sure Mom got it just right.

A beautiful day

We are sorry we haven't been visiting much - Mom always struggles at this time of year so we took her off to the beach - can you believe it hit 80 degrees today - the sun was shining, there was a gentle breeze, the sky was blue and we had the entire beach to ourselves. We sat with Mom for a long time on the sand and she felt so much better.

The fishermen head out with hope in their hearts that the 'big' one won't get away :)

Winter in Florida

Okay - so it is a little unusual for it to be this hot in Florida in December but we would rather have this and our clear sunny blue skies than snow - off to the beach we go :)

Scared the bee-gee-bees out of the Mom

Last night just after sunset we wanted to go out and sit on our deck but something caught our attention (Mom thinks it was a cat) and the CHASE was on! We took off into the preserve behind our house and we were gone - something we had never done before. The preserve has been full of water up until now but over the last few days it has finally dried up and if you are wondering - all the fencing material was sitting right there ready to be put up today (which it was). Needless to say Mom was in a panic - she had the flashlight looking for us and Dad drove all the way around the other side of the preserve to see if we came out there. They couldn't follow us into the preserve as it is full of briar vines that have the nastiest thorns all over them - something Mom found out about the hard way. She called and called us and could hear us moving around in the under growth and then FINALLY two houses down from where we live - we finally find our way out. Mom checked us all over to make sure we weren't hurt and then in the scared/angry Mom voice told us to get our fluffy butts home RIGHT now! We did :) :) :)

A Special Note:
We also want to say how sorry we were to read that our buddy Easy left for the rainbow bridge -  he fought hard to stay but sadly when the bridge calls it is hard not to go. Run free big guy - we know there were so many good buddies waiting for you but we also know your Mom and Dad are heartbroken and will miss you so very much.
Just innocently deck sitting

This is the preserve that is part of our back yard.

Sigh, grumble, and a little whine

Dear Blogger - don't you know I am a senior doggie who is set in my ways - I don't take well to change and now you have gone and redone the side menu making it harder to find things. Oh SURE - I will get use to it in time but  I liked it when my buddies blogs just appeared on the main screen, I liked when comments were easy to find and I LIKED the old setup. Grumble grumble now I have to go hunting for everything - sigh - give an old doggie a break!

Happy Thanksgiving

You know we don't really do the whole thanksgiving thing (or Christmas) at our house - Mom says when you don't have family or kids around there just isn't much point to it. So for us it is just another day BUT we do give thanks every single day when we get to go to MY beach or one of MY parks. Today especially we gave thanks for a walk at MY Jacksonville Cowspotdog Arboretum Gardens and the Little Ravine Loop we went on. It was amazing to see all the big trees that had been blown over in that last big storm and to see how high the creek that runs through the ravine had flooded up to. The pics below show us in front of one the big trees and blew over and then you can see the whole tree and the other on is of us in front of these weird tree roots and then showing a better look at them - why would a tree grow like?

Anyhoo - we sure do wish everyone a wonderful thanksgiving and we hope you all get to spend time with your family and friends and enjoy the get together.

Sunrise/Sunset Sunday

Mom has a new walking place - she passes by this park and lake every morning and loves to see the sunrise over the water. Some mornings the colors are just amazing and NO we don't get to go which is so unfair. Mom has to walk down a very busy road and under a major highway bypass before she reaches the quiet of the park and she says the traffic would 'freak' us out - personally we don't believe it but some things you jut can't argue with Mom's about! Here are some of the best pics from this past week - why don't you join us next week for Sunrise or Sunset Sunday and share your beautiful pictures too :) Remember you can click on the photo's to see them bigger.
