Morning Meanderings… Dogs Life


Good morning!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We did here!  Did a little eating, did a little shopping, watched movies and just spent time together. 

For my Saturday Snapshot today I thought I would give you a little update on the adopted dogs.  Sammy, was a stray and came to live with us in April:

In July, we rescued Mater who was abused:

Sammy is Lap-so, and Mater is art beagle and part basset hound, “A Baggle”.  😀  As you can imagine my house went from a quiet home with just Al and I and Bailey (our 14 year old Schi-tzu) to a BUSY house with Sammy who they believe was 1 1/2 when we got him, and Mater who was 4 months old when we got him.

Mater made the biggest changes to out home.  He grew fast.  He is extremely curious.  In the last 4 months he has taken food off the kitchen table, went through a “running through the house with a roll of toilet paper” phase, 3 pairs of shoes, perhaps most painfully – 10 books, and a lot od saying “MATER!” when he plays non stop.

Sammy and Mater are buddies,  although Mater is a year younger than Sammy, he is three times as big as Sammy now.

I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday.  Justin, College Son, goes back home this morning.  I have a volunteer fair to help out with for a few hours this afternoon and a few hours tomorrow.  Other than that, I get to hang out at home the rest of this weekend… get a little exercise and catch up on my challenges from 2012 so I can post about what the plans are for 2013.  😀 

What’s the rest of your weekend plans?

  1. Awww cuties! I have a full blood basset and she’s a handful! She likes to steal tissue/toliet paper/anything. It’s such a hound trait! LOL

    Have a great day!

  2. Yup, I always say in my next life I want to come back as someones pamper house pet. So CUTE!

    • Yeah the books was a bit annoying but they were all old ones I had picked up at garage sales and did not have in the book room (which has a door I keep closed 😀 )

  3. Sweet pictures! Mater sounds like a handful but I’ll bet he is a sweetheart. So glad you gave them both a home and that they have fun together.

  4. I didn’t realize Mater was so young! He’ll grow out of (and be trained out of, of course) some of that mischievous energy. So cute!

  5. You’re very sweet to rescue these pups. And I just want to squeeze your baggle 😀

  6. They are both adorable – I love that you have taken in rescues and strays – so many dogs need a good home.

  7. Our daughter has a beagle. Buster likes to sleep next to me in the sofa.And barks a lot to anyone who walks in front of the house.
    Very nice photos.

  8. Okay, I want a Mater! Seriously, they are both adorable, but that Mater really tugs at my heart strings. He’s worth the trouble, isn’t he? 😉

  9. They’re both so cute. They may have had a rocky start, but they’ve landed on their feet at your house.
