    Hugs for Duchess

    My nephew, Jayden, loves Duchess and Duchess loves her. He spent the day with us recently, and I got some adorable pics of the two together. She is SO GOOD with kids!

    Duchess had her spring portraits made in our backyard recently. :) (She's only tied because our fence isn't complete. She does NOT stay outside!)

    It's rare to find Sam anywhere near Duchess...OK...I admit it! I threw her up there, and she stayed just long enough for the pic. :o)

  8. Wrestling With the Baby!

    Wrestling With the Baby!

    This was taken the morning after my sister's wedding. Our in-law's stayed the night, hence the mattress in the floor. Anyway, Duchess got to play with my nephew, Jayden. She's soooo good with babies & kids! Here, Jayden had just kinda fallen over on Duchess, and she just rolled over. :)
  9. Boat Ride!

  15. Sketch of Duchess

    Sketch of Duchess

    I was very inspired (bored) last night, so I decided to get back to an old hobby of mine--drawing. What do you think? I normally do still-life things but I wanted to try our puppy!
  16. What?


    "What???" Duchess kills me when she's playing with her toys...if you get her attention, she'll just stop and look at you with whatever she has hanging out of her mouth. LOL
  17. Sleepy Time

    Sleepy Time

    Duchess and I had nappy time. (I was at the other end of the sofa.) Doesn't she look cozy?

    Monster Dog!

    It's hilarious when Duchess lays upside-down and her lips flap out...especially if you turn upside down with her! ~LOL~
  20. What's out there?

    What's out there?

    See that pile of lumber outside? That's what's left to be put up of our privacy fence! :o)
