summer 2012

i miss the blog. and so does my mom. so i'm writing a post tonight for me, my mom & that puppy.
foster had an ok summer. the weather was warm, which is kinda tough for a 90lb brown puppy but we got a kiddie pool so he seemed to enjoy that (more than jason). we went to cape cod for a week in july. house was dog friendly but lake was not (booooooooooooooo) and not much else in cape cod is either. then we also went up to Maine for a half week, which was def more puppy fun-YAY Maine!
here's a pic recap for May-September.....better late than never!

now that i look thru the pics puppy had a fun enjoyable summer!
alas that is all over as daddy's work has been temporarily relocated for 2 years and foster can no longer accompany him to his new digs. he is now dog. sigh.
luckily hunting season is upon us and he is getting out more with daddy to be a retriever.
hopefully i can keep up with seasonal recaps since apparently monthly was not working out.
c u at years end......meg

march & april 2012

well there's not much to post on march b/c i actually wrote a few posts that month.
march was a mix of warm & cold so we got out when we could.
here's a few additional pics of our brown friend from march:

april was a bit busier, with palm sunday & easter, and i took a trip to atlanta to visit BFB & her new daughter leah. the weather varied again this month too. some summer like days & some dreary spring-like days. for the second time in 2 years foster took another trip to tufts. the best we can guess is he ate something that made him really sick or had some form of IBS. either way he could not eat or pass any food for a few days. took him a week or so to get back to normal but we are thankful as always for the wonderful care he recieved and that he is happy & healthy again!
here's a brief recap of april:

summer starts early this year

it has been quite warm round these parts this week. in the 70's in march! craziness!
foster has yet to blow his winter coat so he is cooking in this heat! daddy has been sure to take him swimming everyday.
here's a few recent pics of foster enjoying a taste of early summer.....
i'm sure it won't last but we are loving it for now!

a new friend

there have been quite a few changes at daddy's work since i stopped blogging regularly.
most notably, puppy's girlfriend olive (the muppet) passed away last fall. she had a lot of seizures and medical problems. it was very sad. we miss her terribly. RIP muppet.
on top of that puppy's "brother" sabot hasn't been coming in to the office b/c his mom is going to grad school part-time. funny thing about dogs.....they know their own breed and in foster & sabot's case, prefer to spend their time playing with them too. i have never seen foster rough-house and play with any other breed like he does with a fellow lab, especially sabot.
so puppy is missing his besties big time. he's been stuck walking the WMA everyday with just daddy.
on top of all that another one of the office doggies, chance, passed away recently too. chance was not a huge fan of foster but they would walk together occasionally. lucky for foster, chance's mommy laurie just recently decided to get a new puppy! lexi is a border collie mix and a bundle of herding energy. i am told she like to nip at foster's backside and tail, which he does not appreciate one bit. i am sure they will grow into fast friends!
i am so glad he has a new playmate again at work!
