more brown dogs

baby j has several pieces of clothing with brown puppies on them. perhaps b/c of his love of foster the puppy?
as of last week he has started watching foster walk around and seems a bit more interested in his brown friend.
i'm sure they will be best buds someday!

gates pond

on saturday daddy took puppy to gates pond for a nice, and somewhat chilly, walk. last week puppy was stuck at home with mommy & baby almost all week and was quite bored. as a result he dug a rather large hole in the backyard next to the grill. he kept coming in the house with dirt on his paws & nose. i finally saw the hole & figured it out. so some exercise was in order and it was a bit too cold for baby to go along so daddy took foster & the camera. the sun is getting a bit stronger and most of the snow is gone but the reservoir itself was still frozen.
ready to go dad
posing by the water (yes he went in)
sniffing around
and of course, running
this is a picture of happiness (i LOVE this pic)
thanks for taking some pics for the blog hunny!!!
till next time.....

a prelude to summer

last friday we had one of those random 70-degree days in march that melts all the snow and gives us new-englanders a light at the end of the long dark tunnel that is winter. lucky for me my wonderful sister, auntie k as she is now called, was visiting AND puppy was home with us too!
so we hit the pavement for a nice long walk around the neighborhood & down to the assabet river.
auntie k snapped some great pics of me, j & the one and only foster the puppy.....
me & my boys
j is lovin' the bjorn now that he's big enough to face out!
down by the river
swimming (& drooling) in march
it was a beautiful day! more to come for auntie k's visit.......

ohh luxury!

after 2.5yrs foster's original puppy bed has kicked the dust. you may remember seeing it back in the fall of 2008.....
ohh puppy used to be so little! he has enjoyed the comfort of that bed everyday since then!
but unfortunately after frequent use, frequent washings and even mending with a needle & thread the $40 woolrich bed is worn out.
i managed to convince myself (& hubby) that frequent purchases of cheaper beds does not make as much sense as a one-time purchase of a much more luxurious dog bed. so without further adieu i bring you foster's new digs......
just so there's no confusion who this belongs to (altho i'm sure daddy & baby may still use it)
this is an llbean large-sized premium denim rectangular dog bed. their website says the extra-large bed is for dogs 70lbs and over but when i compared the measurements the large-sized bed seemed more appropriate. it is almost the same size as the woolrich bed and we just don't have a ton of floor space for anything any more luxurious!
at first puppy seemed hesitant but then he settled right in!
i was told there was a lot of snoring last night!

having a baby makes u tired.....

...but u must always find time for your puppy!
whether it's a walk, game of fetch or....spooning by the fire:
notice the hand-holding
i'd like to point out DH doesn't even cuddle with me like this anymore! foster is a very special dog. so pathetic!
