Look at what was at the Lake last weekend. Those funny looking animals without the fur. There was lots of them. They did not seem to mind all the rain or the water. They just continued their playing on the lake. One of them was even taking a bath. Blue heeler's really do NOT enjoy baths.

Look at me I am so happy

Mom took this picture of me at the lake after I had been playing with my stick. As you can see I am such a happy dog. Mom says that I am always smiling.
It rained again today so I am sure the lake has once again risen a few more inches. The weather man says that possibly the sun will come out again this weekend making our trip to the lake much more enjoyable. A "Happy Dog" can only hope...

Look what I found

While running through the tall weeds I found something really great. Oh ya it may just be a stick to you but to me it is a real prize! This is why I
really love going to the lake. You can never tell what kind of goodies you will find. Dad finds stuff digging in the dirt and all I have to do is look around..

What is in there?

What is in there Mom? I am sure I heard something. Maybe there is another one of those bunnies for me to chase. Maybe a snake or even a lizard. Well I checked it out and I found nothing. I wonder where all those bunnies have gone.
We have another rainy day here. The lake keeps rising leaving me with less and less running room but as you saw yesterday I know how to make do...

Water is so much fun

Look at me running through the water. I had so much fun at the lake in between the rain showers. I did find a very scary stick there. Mom was not really sure what scared me but I jumped right out of the water. The rest of the time there I kept going back and barking at that stick.
It is raining again right now so I am a little disappointed. We may not make it to the lake today...

Kisses for Dad

We went to the Lake today. It wasn't a very pretty day it kept drizzling on us. Dad did his usual thing of digging in the dirt. Mom caught me giving Dad kisses as he was trying to dig something up. As you can see Dad wasn't very happy with me but I sure liked it.
The weather continues to threaten rain but Dad is hoping it will let up so maybe we can sneak out again later this afternoon.. The weather man says rain all weekend. Yuckers...

I am so thirsty

While at the lake I just had to run down to the water and get a drink. Mom caught me in the act. The water was so cool. I did not mind that it was pretty dirty.
Today mom and dad took off work and are spending the day with me. It is raining outside so we are not able to go to the lake. This is an ideal "dog day" just laying around snoozing. I hope tomorrow brings some sunshine so we can get out to the lake again...

Cool bar

Look at the neat bar/grill that Mom and Dad to Sis to for her 21st Birthday. They have an awesome steak called steak diablo that Toph and Dad love. Of course Sis likes their deep fried mushrooms. Well so does Mom. Megan came with us to help celebrate Jessica's big day. What a lovely time we had..

Look at this silly cat

While I was upstairs I found this silly cat. I chased her around a bit but she decided to hide on me but Dad found her. What was she thinking hiding in plain site.. She did accomplish one thing though she was far enough away that I couldn't get at her. I am just going to wait close by for her to come out and then I will get her...

Look I am helping Dad

I decided to take a break and see what Dad is up to. He was digging in the dirt again but he didn't find to much on this day. I was trying to hide behind the flowers but I soon lost intrest. Sometimes Dad can be boring. He won't even let me help dig with him.
Maybe next time... A puppy can only hope..

Isn't it beautiful

While at the lake Mom found this beautiful butterfly hanging out on a thistle. I don't know what it is about thistles but they were all over it. You can see the detail in his wings. Mom took a few pictures of a pretty blue one also but he wasn't nearly as close at this little guy...

Don't I look relaxed

We went to the lake today and what a beautiful day it was. We went to our secluded spot but ran into some boy scouts. They had spent the weekend and were packing up to leave. Dad was excited since they had beaten down some of the tall grass so metal detecting was much easier.
As you can see about 2 hours into this exciting day I was ready to go. This is me in my relaxes position. Oh with all the boy scouts there I had to keep my nasty leash on.

Beautiful day at the lake

Mom took this picture while at the lake on Saturday. The lake was so smooth and calm. It was quite peaceful there. Mom was relaxed but you know blue heelers never relax. They have to much exploring to do. The weeds are getting quite tall at the lake and I love to run through tall weeds.. You never know what you may find in those weeds.

Good-bye great pizza

Mom and Dad had to go up to the Tomato on Mothers Day. The Tomato has been a favorite spot of theirs since before Toph and Jess were born. Mothers day was the last day they were open. They made the best pizza around. They had a whole wheat pizza crust that was to die for. Mom and Dad are hoping that they will find another spot close by and reopen. We can only hope..

Dad though that this was a cool picture

This is a picture of the new Lake Mobile. Dad thought it was kind of a cool picture. Can't see the Mobile through the trees. But the lake mobile is red so there it is! This was right before it began to rain at the lake. We went hustling back to the mobile to get out of the rain. Isn't Texas weather wonderful?

Mom what is that

Mom what is that. Oh that is one of those funny animals without fur. As I said before Mom got a picture of him and he landed right in front of me. I quickly jumped into the lake to try and catch him but he ignored me. When I finally found him he flew away. I wish I could fly away sometimes then I could get places faster than I can run.

Iguana or just a large lizard?

Look closely! You will see the lizard on the left side of the tree. It was one huge lizard Mom said it was big enough to be an iguana! I don't know what that is but apparently it is quite large. Dad said there was another one on the other side of the tree and he tried to get it to move around so Mom could take a picture of both of them but Mom's camera battery went dead. Darn....

Look at this guy in action

Mom got her new lens she managed to get a picture of a duck in action. He took off on her but with her new zoom lens she was able to catch him landing again in the water. This was taken after we had to spend some time in the truck since it was raining again. The rain stopped so we got to spend more time at the lake and mom got to take more pictures....

Who made this?

Look at the bridge we found at the Lake. We do not know who made it but we are thinking it may have been some boy scouts. Mom let me walk over the bridge but I wasn't to sure about it. It wasn't the smoothest bridge I have ever crossed.
Mom and I are at home waiting for the FedEx guy to come. Dad got her a new camera lens for Mothers Day. I am hoping that when Dad gets home we can go to the lake and try it out. I really don't care about the lens I just want to go to the lake. :0)

What is in the frig Dad

Dad is looking in the frig for something to eat. I
don't know what he will find but I know that people food is always good. Maybe some cheese? I love cheese. Maybe there is some left over roast beasties? Mr. Gus loves that too. Sometimes Dad and Mom save bones for me... Mmmmm
What ever it is I know it will be crazy tasty...

I love the lake

Mom caught me in action again. Doing what Mr. Gus does best. She caught me in my frisky state. I was out checking things out when I lost track of Mom so I immediately had to go looking for her. The only way I know to find her is to run as fast as I can all over the park. As you can see my tongue kind of has a mind of it's own when I am on the hunt... I tell you again, I love the lake...

Isn't this beautiful

Mom took another beautiful picture at the lake that she thought she would share with you. This is the p
ark that we have been going to. It is really quiet and peaceful. Not many people go here so it is a really nice place for me to get my exercise.
This is the front half of the park. The back half is where it is closed off and I can really run free.
It rained again today so I am thinking that the beach is getting smaller and smaller.

Nothing in the bathroom

Look at the old building we found while out checking things out. I had to check it out and make sure no one was inside. Just as I suspected no one in there and no on up there. I wander all around this building and I decided it was safe for mom and dad. I didn't even find any critters.
Notice this is that part of the park that no one goes to anymore. The over grown weeds are a good sign. I just hope that it is nice this weekend so we can come back here and do some more exploring.

I am so tired

We had a long day at the lake so I was ready to head toward home. Mom took this picture of me headed back to the truck. I was so tired of all the running and swimming I just wanted to go home. Mom thinks all the running is giving me stamina but I think they are just trying to tire me out.
I am hoping that we can go back here again next weekend. It was in a part of the park that no one goes to anymore. It still has all the picnic tables and restrooms but the weeds are all grown up. I can run and play where ever I want without having to deal with other people or dogs..

Can you see me Mom?

We went down to the lake again today and we found a very old part that had the old picnic tables but seemed to be closed down. The weeds were very high so I thought it would be fun to hide on Mom. Well as you can see mom keeps a very close eye on me and she found me. Dad wishes that they would reopen this part of the park so then they would mow down the weeds. I really don't mind though. It is just to much fun to hide in them... Also there no one else goes back here so Mom lets me off my leash to run and explore....

Look at this funny looking creature

While we were out touring last weekend we came across this really funny looking thing. It had a very hard shell and it could hide its head in it. Mom said it was a painted turtle. We found it in the middle of the road so Dad quickly got out and sent him on his way. Mom and Dad were afraid that someone might run him over with a car and he would not make it to his destination.

The bank Bonnie and Clyde robbed

This is another building in Ponder. It is the bank that Bonnie and Clyde robbed. It has since been changed to a boot factory and now is empty. It is a really interesting building with the old arches and brick. Mom and Dad think it would make a really neat home if someone had the interest in it.

Thursday, May 03, 2007

Look we are in Ponder

Sunday we went to Ponder to take some pictures. This is the Ranchman's Cafe. They are famous for their home made pies. Grandma and Grampy used to love to go here for home made pies. They have pecan pie which is Grampy's favorite. Mom likes the coconut cream.. Mmmm she says. Dad wouldn't let us go in he didn't think they would like me going in to visit so we had to skip the pie. Maybe next time?

What is over there

Here I am peeking through the fence. My neighbor dogs are over there. I wonder what they are up to today? Maybe if I bark they will bark too and we can play the chasing game. I oh so like to run back and forth along the fence barking at them. I think it is a fun game but Mom and Dad get a bit angry with me for making so much noise.

I am so fast

This is me getting my exercise. I enjoy running super fast at the lake. I am worry though since it has been raining that I may not have all the room at the beach that I have had to do this. It has been raining a lot here so the beach has been shrinking. This past weekend it shunk about 4 feet and now today it rained again so even less area for me to run. The up side to this is that I will be able to run though the water which is just as much run... Blue heelers are really good at entertaining themselves with what ever nature provides...
