pig's ear!

for foster's 6 month birthday i splurged and got him a couple of pig's ears! now i assumed a pig's ear treat was actually a pig's ear. my co-worker's agree, DH does not. PLEASE lend me your 2 cents and lemme know-what exactly is a pig's ear dog treat?
i snapped a couple of pics of foster enjoying his prize. he wasn't sure about it at first but give that dog any amount of time with something and he'll start trying to eat it.

more fun pics of foster with his favorite new friend rabbit tomorrow!

hanging out with timber & zeke

last weekend we went over our friend's ken & beth's place to watch some football, eat some snacks and play with timber and zeke! timber is a 4 y.o. husky and zeke is an 8 y.o. bulldog and both are super sweet. foster has met timber once before but this was his first time meeting a little meatball like zeke.all the boys seemed a bit tired, timber and zeke from snowshoeing, foster from hanging out with baron sat night (more to come on that later when mali sends me the pics!), so it was a low key evening.
zeke briefly entertained the idea of playing with the brown bear cub.....
what good boys!
thanks for having us over!

6 months old and 50 lbs!!

foster hit the 6 month mark today! and i just happened to swing by the vet's office yesterday to pick up some heartworm medicine so i had him climb up on the ol' scale and guess what-50 lbs!!! it seems like just yesterday he was a tiny little 10 lb pup who couldn't go up or down stairs. it's crazy how time flies! remember when he used to fit under the coffee table?now he's taller than it and his tail does a pretty job of clearing things off too!i stopped on my way home tonight and picked up a special treat for the my not-so-little brown bear cub....a pigs ear! i hear dogs love chewing them so he'll be getting that later on tonight. all this growing up makes me wanna reminisce.....

hard to believe that was only ~4 months ago! tune in tomorrow for our visit with timber and zeke!

staying warm

this week is supposed to get real cold so we're doing all we can to stay warm around here. we recently got a pellet stove insert for our fireplace to help heat the house. hubby has been working hard to seal all the drafts and make our home nice and toasty warm. lets just say it's a work in progress. foster likes sitting in front of the stove to keep warm from time to time. can't say i blame him-it's a toasty spot!

another weekend, another snowstorm

this weekend dropped another 8ish inches of snow on us. not too bad for shoveling and certainly lots of fun for chocolate lab puppies!playing fetch with boomerang
even tho foster loves his boomerang he was distracted but a much more interesting "toy"......a bottle of windshield-washer fluid!

who knew car maintenance could be so fun?
