Daddy’s girl

Trixie likes to lay like this. She puts her feet on my chest and then just rolls over into my arm. She sometimes lays this way for over an hour.  Of course, me rubbing her belly helps.


Daddy’s Home

I made it home about noon today from a week long trip to Florida and this was my greeting….

I live close to the Meramec River just south of St. Louis and I have to cross that river to get home.  There are like 3 or 4 bridges that cross the river without going […]

Who’s a good boy?

Gus is a good boy!  He likes to sit on the couch while we watch TV. He’s starting to go deaf these days.  He’s gonna be 13 this year.


Taking a break…

Trixie and I took about a 10-minute break this afternoon while putting up drywall.  She jumped up there and laid there the whole time.  


Sad Trixie?

Google created this ‘stylized’ version of a picture I took of Trixie sitting up in the bay window of the new patio room.  She looks so sad there, but she’s not at all.  She’s a very happy dog.

Gus at the Threshold

Gus has always had a hard time going through doorways. Way back when, he wouldn’t go through them at all. We had to carry him in and out.  He very gradually, but skeptically started going through them.  Then we got the automatic doggy door.  He did pretty well with that, he would eventually […]

Gus – 7 years ago

Google photos presented this picture as a reminder from 7 years ago.  It’s so strange seeing this because Gus never really does this.  There are only two or three times I’ve seen him carry a toy around.  He doesn’t play with them at all.  He would walk around like this moaning or whimpering […]

Mornin’ Trix


Lazy dogs

Trixie loves to lay on the pillows, while Gus is content wherever he lands.  Below, Trixie relaxes on me as we watch TV. Gus relaxes on the floor below.
