The older crowd, keeping to the high ground and away from those young pups!

Out like a lamb

March 31 - the boys over to play for a bit
Minutes before taking this picture, Kit was actually grooming Alex's snout. Why don't I have a camera in every room???

Click for a clever and wonderful Happy Easter message -

Wednesday, March 23, 2005

Today is International Very Good Looking, Darn Smart Woman's Day, so please send this message to someone you think fits this description. Please do not send it back to me as I have already received it from a Very Good Looking, Darn Smart Woman! And remember this motto to live by: Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!" Have a wonderful day!

Pat & Alex, Saturday: Overnight photos are almost as good as digital!
After a busy weekend at the Kentuckiana Cluster, we got to go to the park this morning! Just cool enough for a great run!
Had to practice long-distance downs...
So glad we got this new playground equipment!

Now that he is over ONE YEAR OLD

Alex been pottying like the big guys - on three legs - for the past few weeks. I don't understand this, must be he learned in the darkness of winter. One day he and I were walking and he just lifted that leg higher than his head to go against a tree. I never saw any faulty starts, odd leaning, catching balance - he just DID it. I figure he had to practice in the daytime when my neighbors let him out, but I missed it all. Now it is just another Belgian miracle!

Now another surprise from the little guy - Monday night he scampered right up this wall. Yes, that marker says 43 inches! It wasn't really a jump. He started from right next to it and I think he had to grab the wall with his back feet as well, but over he went. I was standing 2 ft behind him and totally surprised! He has hit the lower walls in past months, but this one is so OVER his 24" shoulders.

St Patrick's Day Parade

Sunday, the Cincinnati St Patrick's Day Parade! This parade takes place every year the Sunday before St Pat's and is one of the biggest in the US. Really! Alex and I went down for a bit of socialization and all-round-greenness.
Lots of folks said hello's to Alex while we watched the floats and folks go by. Several, naturally, asked what he was mixed with . One guy had a law enforcement brother with a Mal, but had never heard of our Tervuren. Alex gave everyone hello's and by the time we left, was much more comfortable with all the hubbub of a parade. Still not fond of drums, but not panicked, either. It could have been the hot dog! LOL

A moment of rest after running and twirling with Gregor.
Fun time - it is supposed to snow tonight (and it did!) so the boys came over to play for an hour while the yard was still dry. What frolicking fun!

Thanks to the MS Tervs for this card!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ALEX !!! Your four littermates and you are 1 year old today. In case you missed the historical pictures, here is one from "back then." As a pround owner/parent/caretaker (take your choice), I get to show them forever!

Woods Water It's all GOOD!
This is one of my favorit pictures from yesterday. Alex must have slept all day today to recuperate!

After a practice match at Clermont County Dog Club, we were invited to romp with some of the Belgians. What fun they all had!!
Nothing like a 'dip' to cool a guy off after a hard day of making the humans happy!

For the record, 19 degrees is pretty cold this morning. The weather page says next week will have highs of 50 - hurry, mercury!

Tried to take pictures of the neighborhood play group tonight. The digital was just not fast enough! LOL Do you see the disappearing tail to the right?
Next pose..
Picture time! It is 23 degrees tonight and March is entering windy and more like the LION than the lamb. Hope that means spring is SOON!
