a whole latte two good dogs ~ georgia and savannah

we had our coldest night so far {-15 or so} and a slight breeze, in the november polar vortex, brrr... it's cold out there!  but after today... it is going to warm up.  that would be warming up alatte... or alittle?!!

good thing there is hot coffee {latte}, and warm doggies! and they do love their coffee!!  lol  {they really only get a sip or two!}

and... they wait patiently. {sorta}
hey missy!  whatcha got there?
oh yes...they can smell the vanilla and the milk!  pretty please mom?!
when i've had my sips... it their turn.  and for those {dogs} without long, narrow noses... there is always the incredible long licking tongue of a border collie!  gracious!
does georgia's face give her desperation away?!  lol  ahhh... we humans know that same 'gimme coffee ~ then we'll talk' don't we?
and we learn to take turns...

savannah's tongue isn't quite as amazing {or long}, but what one lacks in tongue length, is made up in nose length!

here's to a day with a couple good dogs, a {one} cup of coffee... and a warm home.

i'm thankful!
{amen!}

1.  playing with the pups early mornings {it's never too early for a dip in the pool!} lol

"there's a tomato thief in the garden...  did you see her?"



oh yes... missy savanah... i see "her" all right!
have you ever seen a tomato-pickin' dog?
maybe a tomato-eatin' dog...
but one that actually picks them off the vine and eats them?
nope.
it's a first for me!
georgia is not impressed, however!!!
but then again, she has a one-track...
or make that two track mind.
pool.
and ball.

who me?
happy beautiful summery days, indeed!  
tomato thiefs and psycho border collies included!

dog whispers ~

hey everybody ~

i've been happily committed to wedding decorations, but in the meantime... perhaps you will indulge me in a little bit of a "canine update" on the blog today! {yup ~ we've gone to the dogs!} lol

this is sweet savannah.  our little shetland sheepdog dog is a funny girl, too. she's even quite quirky! and very athletic, as well as quite sweet-tempered.  she also watches over georgia ~ very much like a big sister, except she's half her size!  ain't that the way it goes?!  but she also doesn't take anything from her either!  so ~ don't mess with this sweet little toughie!  
and they have convos all the time!  it's pretty funny to watch.  and i don't think georgia would be a very happy dog without another very intelligent dog to keep her company. that's just how it is with these super smart, working breeds... they either need a job, or someone to entertain them! 
and of course... who can resist captioning these photos with anything but "dog whispers!" "you take the sheep on the west, and i'll go to the east... we'll meet there, and then herd 'em all into the pens, and those sheep won't even know what happened until the farmer shuts the gate!"
and one of my favorite pics of georgia ~ a memory from the 'early days' of her puppyhood.  {eating all the flowers she could find}.  yeah... that is still true, and why we don't have any flowers in our yard anymore. {saves me alot of time and money!} lol
she is still just as "nutso" as ever about her pool... and the same is true when it comes to running water of any kind!  {border collie tunnel vision/psycho}!
 and crazy about her ball... which we need to replace!

 and she is very sweet, but she's not into petting so much... all she really wants is action, and lots of it.  that's what it takes for this big girl bc.  and she is quite large for a border collie.  very long-legged, and unlike the border collie reputation for shyness... not much of that in her either.
 yeah... see that empty planter?  it's forlorn, but that's the way it goes.  {you don't bring me flowers anymore!?"} that's just part of the package deal when you have two {good} dogs like georgia and savannah.  as you can see, georgia gets the ball, and savannah herds her back!
 "did you say treats?" 
 these two are fun together, & we love 'em!  well, thanks for taggin' along today ~ and bless your day!

my montana backyard ~ june 2014

june.
beautiful june.

it's a bit of a tease with the hint of sunshine, and perhaps of slightly warmer days to come... but just stopping to take in that lush green... amazing.  and the sweet freshness of wonderful rains is definitely take-your-breath-away goodness.

here are just a few of my favorite views from the past week in our 'montana backyard' ~

{my favorite dogs int he backyard too}  miss georgia-girl and sweet savannah ~ ready to go~!






have a great week!

the chronicles of georgia ~

hi friends ~

i don't imagine that many of you will be surprised at the following scenes of georgia and nicki the cat.  now... nick has been with me for over 17 years now.  she's pretty easy-going ~ and has adjusted pretty well to new 'puppies' and all their rambunctiousness! {i just made that a word!}  but getting 'up close friendly and personal' is not her deal!   but it was sooo funny... and luckily {for my entertainment} i had the camera handy and snapped the funny faces...

{not so much...}
i'd say georgia is fairly disappointed... and even disgusted! well!  why am i surprised? 
this dog!  she has soooo much personality ~ a dog that is sweet tempered and larger than life!  take a look at how she is on top of the couch... with one leg touching the bottom cushions.  she is one, long-legged, border collie-girl.  and she just loves the kitties... but as you likely have guessed.. it is an unrequited love!!!  lol.

and... a chance to play with a new phone app {love it} from a beautiful mess. you can {of course} download it from the itunes store... it's 99 cents {naturally you can purchase more little embellishments shall we say?!}

enJOY~!
