Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

A few months ago my mom had to have her dog, Mickey, put to sleep because of a cancerous tumor that had started in his leg and spread through his body. He was a seven year-old golden retriever and such a sweetie. My mom was broken-hearted and we miss him. She decided to get another puppy and brought home this little fuzz ball in early July. His name is Moe, he's a big ham and loves posing when I get out the camera! These are a few favorites from our photo sessions.
Happy boy in my new home!
Aren't I soooo cute?
It's been a hot summer and I'm lucky to have a pool
Look how much I've grown in one month!

    1. He's very smart, and very spoiled! (kind of)
      He's learned how to work us already and uses those eyes quite effectively. :D

    1. It's always tough to lose a pet. And it's really hard to make that trip to the vet to have them put to sleep. I've left that place empty-handed and in tears several times myself. I would still never be without a pet though!

  10. I want Moe! He could be a puppy model, for sure. I just want to snuggle him up.

  11. Moe looks so innocent. A puppy is playful, bubbly and sometimes just sits.
    Very nice photos.
