The photo above was not great quality but I had fun putting in the Sketch It App.
Kim and Diane Theme: Stuffed Animal
This theme is dedicated to my sweet german shepherd mix, Bailey, who when given any stuffed toy becomes “The Destructor.” She feels the need to remove any squeakers from a toy immediately and then if she gets a little frustrated, the destuffing begins. Every Christmastime she gets treated with stuffed toys, but usually it’s a Kong brand or tennis ball.
When she was younger, she used to eat holes in pillows and destroyed any dog bed we brought home for her. Last year, I bought another bed and put it in the kitchen, thinking she is getting a little older and would like the padding. The first 6 months, our cat decided it was her territory, but every once in awhile I catch her there, enjoying the comfy bed. (not a chewed area to be found) – Kim

Our shepherd, Bailey, coming in from a new snow.
Photo Friday Theme – Shadows by Kim
Meet Rue named after a character in the Hunger Games book by my daughter Meg. She is always looking for the warmest spot in the house, so finding a shadow nearby is not hard! What is hard is to not get her half eye-closed or doing that cat thing where they turn away. (I thought teenagers could have attitude!) Actually she is very cuddly and loving. The “Catitude” only comes occasionally in proportion to how loving she is!
I love this photo as she is snuggled up to the girl’s old stuffed animals.
Runner Up: Bailey’s Fish Obsession:
This shot is in memory of the 10 large fish that survived the last two winters but not the giant heron who finished them off this morning! Bailey sadly was looking for them this morning with nothing to bark at! I love her shadow in the water as she looks like a true predator!!
Photo Friday Theme – Beast
Our shepherd Bailey has been pegged as one who thinks she is a “lap dog.” She loves to hang out with the family on the couch, go for walks and basically just likes to be where we are. The snow brings out a different side to our furry companion. She runs, digs, and hunts like a BEAST in the snow. Her favorite thing is to catch snowballs! It really makes me happy to see her have such a good time. — Kim

Meet my dog Bailey. She is our second family dog adopted from the Human Society. I remember the girls picking her out from a litter of pups and her riding home in the lap of my daughter while she was looking at me with very intense eyes! I thought we had made a huge mistake, as I had only feared German Shepherd’s growing up. Bailey has turned out to be such a loyal and loving part of our family. I’m not saying that we didn’t have our share of moments… like when I found her in a pile of feathers from shredding my favorite pillow or chewing on my best shoes! She was a rascal for sure. Today, she is always by my side or resting nearby. She sounds fierce but loves people, and protects her hilltop!
Sometimes you just get lucky with a shot. It was St. Patrick’s Day and I started fooling around with the scarf. Well she didn’t try to take it off, so I took out the trusty iPhone. Bailey is “man’s best friend” and so happy to have a beautiful photo of her!
