Harassing Shmed?

Gus checking out what Shmed it up to. Aren't you supposed to be inside?
Louie, where did that cat go? Maybe she wants to play chase?
Callie, here kitty kitty!! Come out and play I won't play to hard..
Shmed decided to make an appearance in the backyard today. She sure caused a little excitement with the Heeler's.. Aren't cats supposed to be chased?

Don't look at the camera..

Callie I am not looking Mom.. Well maybe a little peak!!
Louie, I am ignoring you..
Gus, maybe if I play dead Mom will put that thing away..
Well we are back to the hot weather. We did have a bit of a break last week but not anymore.. We are still hoping for an early Fall..

Saturday fun..

Callie flying again? Such a hyper pup..
Louie ignoring Dad and Gus. Mom they have my ball...
Gus, No Dad you can not have the ball no matter how much you tease me.. The blueman loves to chase the ball but does not like to share or give it back..
We put Toph on the plane this AM. Mom was a little leaky, go figure.. Mom and Dad came home with groceries after the trip to the airport so natural we are sure they traded Toph for groceries..

Happy Dog's..

Gus enjoying the cool air this AM.. Catching a few rays?
Louie in the Louie Zone again...
Callie holding onto her prize. Thanks Louie for chewing this off for me.. You may not like the small pieces but I don't mind..
We have had a nice visit with brother Toph this week. Sadly he has to return to Wisconsin in the AM.. Mom will be sad but we will find some way to cheer her up...

Mom was busy today making cheesecake for us.. She made a butter crust.
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
Press this into the pan.. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes and let cool.
New York Cheesecake


2 cups sour cream
1 lb. ricotta cheese
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cup sugar
16 oz. cream cheese
3 Tbsp. flour
3 extra large eggs
1 Tbsp. vanilla
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 Tbsp. lemon juice


1. Combine sour cream and ricotta cheese in a large mixing bowl. Beating at low speed, add butter, sugar and cream cheese.

2. Increase speed to medium and add flour, eggs, vanilla, cornstarch, and lemon juice. Beat for 5 minutes.

3. Pour into springform pan.

4. Bake in preheated 350F oven for 1 hour, then turn off oven and leave in closed oven for one hour longer. Cool on rack.

The finish product didn't turn out as good as mom would have hoped. It cracked on her but the flavor is great. She has been looking to see what might have went wrong any input would greatly be appreciated...

Rainy day..

Louie, Mom I am bored can I help you make dinner? You know you might drop something.
Callie, I am just going to stay here and watch you cook Mom..
Blueman, I am waiting Mom.. What is for dinner? Oh spaghetti, heeler's like spaghetti..
We finally got a little rain today.. It kind of comes and goes but it did cool things off a bit. We just hope it lasts a few days...

Another visitor..

Look who came to visit us? Norwood is going to be so proud Louie didn't even lick the little guy. Mom was waiting with the camera for foaming but it didn't happen..
Callie, Want to play Blueman? Come on chase me...
Dueling Red's, Or just trying to get one to chase the other...
Sorry we weren't around yesterday.. Brother Toph flew in for a visit and we were so excited Mom didn't get a post up.. We are sure that he will be ready to head back to the cooler weather in Wisconsin by Sunday since it was 105 yesterday and not much better today...

Random Pic's

Louie and his hose... Yes the hose is still getting shorter..
Callie, Now this is a miracle. We are sure that everyone find it hard to believe but the Pest does sleep...
Synchronized zooming? This was early this AM before it got hot. It is much more fun to play zoomies when it isn't 100 degrees out...

Norwood's Eyewatch Friday..

Norwood's Eyewatch Friday..
Louie watching or is he just in the Louie Zone..
Gus watching the kids... Of course notice I had a good roach first.. Mom wonders how all the grass gets in the house. I am not telling..
Callie watching what? She is contemplating who to pester first...
Hope everyone has a great weekend....

Ball fun..

Callie stealing the ball from the boys.. She sure looks determined.
Louie pouncing on the ball.. The Pest isn't going to get this one...
Gus, that is just to much activity in this heat for me.. I think I will just lay here and blue a bit...
We did have a few drops of rain yesterday but not enough to amount to anything and not enough to cool it off around here.. It is back up to 100 again today.. Come on Fall...

A visitor..

Lizzy came to visit us today. When Mom got home she was hanging out on the patio. The Heeler's didn't even see her...
Louie just wandering around..
Callie is on the move again.. She doesn't really care how HOT it is fun is fun to her..
Gus is attempting to head the Pest off at the shrub but she snuck by again. She is pretty fast for being so short.. Sorry the picture is a bit blurry but it is pretty hard to catch us heeler's when we are zooming...

More secrets?

Callie doesn't really tell secrets, she just tries her hardest to get the boys to chase her. I guess it is like, well, maybe if I get in their face they will play..
Gus is trying to ignore her too.. Hey girl it is just to hot to play chase today.. Can we do it another day say in December?

Hot day excitement

Callie girl showing off her beauty spot on her tongue.. Mom never noticed this until just recently.. Silly Mom..
Gus, ignoring the Pest..
Louie getting in a good scratch. Ya that is the right spot...
Not to much going on on the Heeler ranch today. Dad mowed early before the 100 degree temperature and Mom again was vacuuming up that Alien dog hair...
