Happy Birthday, Sweet Jazz!

Although Jazz officially turns 6 today, she started celebrating yesterday with her agility friends at B&D Creekside Activity Center.

Jazz in her party hat with her cake.  

OK, I'll wear the hat if that's what I have to do to get some birthday cake!!

Ah, cake is on FIRE!!!!

At last, Jazz gets to eat some of her birthday cake.  I tried a new recipe with banana and applesauce and carob chips.  Not surprisingly, all the dogs loved it!

This morning, Jazz got to open her birthday gifts.  Here she is with her head in a gift bag from Aunt Mariann, Uncle Jim, Sammie, and Blaze.

Thanks, Aunt Mariann and Uncle Jim!  We all love the leopard and the owl.

Wishing a very Happy Birthday to Jazz and all her siblings!  It's been another great year with my little liver Dal.  Jazz has earned titles in agility, rally, and obedience this year and continues her work as a Therapy Dog.  She is my heart's dog, and I enjoy every minute with her.

Snow Frisbee

Here's a little video of a new game Indy invented while playing frisbee in the snow today.  Rather than the typical toss, fetch, and return, Indy decided that it was more fun to hike the frisbee through his back legs and then turn around and pounce on it.  As you can see in the video, there were times when he got some pretty good distance!  After the girls decided it was too cold to stay out in the snow, Indy entertained himself with his new game.

Here are a few pictures of Rocky that were taken back in the fall:

Rocky at the door of his "apartment," as my great-nephews like to call it.

Handsome Rocky!

Although this was earlier in the fall, you can see that Rocky was already getting his fuzzy winter coat.  After the recent cold weather we've had, he's even more furry and ready for winter's chill.
