New Year's Eve

Happy New Year's Eve Everyone!  Stay safe out there!!!

We spent the last day of 2009 doing our favorite things...

Stella sleeping in the sun.


Gunther chillin' in the never-been-lit fire pit. Why he loves to hang out in there... we'll never know.


We're learning Ms. Betty LOVES herself a game of fetch! She's always waiting for someone to throw the tennis ball.


Luckily they make small tennis balls for small mouths.

You can hear the big mouths in the back ground barking at some people walking by. Betty isn't even phased by it as long as we keep throwin' the ball.

Happy 2010 Friends!!

Have I said already that we are so jealous of the warm weather you have!? Well, we are!

Betty is sooo cute! I loved watching her play retrieve with her ball!!

Betty is one sporty pup for sure. Look at all that running about. Made me tired just watching it.

Is it true that she farts? I love that in a gal. Load 'er up with some broccolis or liver for some real fun.


BRUTUS said...

Whoa, Betty!! Just love those ears of yours - BOL!! They flop when you run - does that help you go faster?? Wish I was there to play with you all & soak up some rays like my Stella. Hmmmmm.... makes me feel all warm & fuzzy just thinkin' about it.... A little weird about Gunther & the fire pit. Maybe he's just concerned about all the CA wildfire last year & wants to be sure it never starts there... I can just picture him in a ranger hat :)

Aww, how sweet is it that Betty really likes playing fetch! And she's soooooo good -- she gives the ball back without a chase!! Happy New Year!

Wow! You guys did pretty much what we did. Things we like. Even today, but enough about me. I'm glad to see Betty got all that attention. If you ever have any questions about undersized toys/balls/etc. don't hesitate to ask me :)
Happy first day of the first week of the first month of the first trimester...of 2010!

Hope you guys have the best year ever!! Come see if you can guess what is blooming at our house. I blogged two times today.
Big hugs for the pups,Bami & Fern

Stella, Gunther, and Betty;

Happy New Year! Hoping your 2010 wishes come true.

Oh Betty, you are SMokey's kind of gal. He loves ball, especially the little yellow ones.
