I give up....


I've thrown this soccer ball back over to the neighbors...
countless times....
and it ends up right back in our yard....

well Rooster and Nolan have claimed it as their own...
I give up....
I think they enjoy it more than the boys next door do....

Boys and Balls....

Nolan has the ball....
Rooster wants the ball....
both of them love to play ball....
Nolan loves to chase the ball...
Rooster loves to jump up and catch the ball...


lot's of exercise from this ball...
for them and for me...
have to play with both of them at the same time...
throw one ball for Nolan to chase...
the other for Rooster to catch...
over and over again....

Biggest humming bird I have ever seen...

I filled up my humming bird feeder...
and I noticed 2 days later it was empty....
I haven't even seen not one humming bird yet...


well....here's my humming bird...
he's been drinking the nectar out of it...
I caught him tilting it up and drinking it...
Hey Rooster....your a dog....
not a humming bird....

Goodbye JD...



Goodbye JD...
we will miss you so much...
you were a great friend for over 10 years...
you gave us love....
companionship...
you sounded the warning when bad weather was headed our way...
you watched over us all...
you kept Bliss groomed and manicured...
you set on her when she was cold...
you taught Rooster the rules of the yard...
you loved to hold hands...



you were the sweetest dog ever...
you will be missed by all...


Hey I'm back....






Hey everyone...I'm back....
Mom's been pretty busy with Nolan and JD....

Nolan...

On friday we found out Nolan was diabetic...
he was started on insulin...he did good on Friday...
and on Saturday he was starting to be more like himself...
Saturday night I left for an hour...came back...
and he was not doing good...he wouldn't eat..
he just wanted to lay around...he spent all day Sunday
sitting in my lap...or sleeping...would not eat...
had to spoon water and broth in him..
we took him back to the Vet monday morning...
we saw a different Vet...and found out he was being
given more than twice the amount of insulin that he should have...
and put on the wrong food...
she changed his insulin...changed his food... 
we pureed the food to get him to eat it...
and yesterday afternoon....he tried to get in the trash...
we knew he was hungry...we were so excited...
he ate his food at dinner without it being pureed...
he still has a ways to go to get back to being Nolan...
but hopefully he is on his way to being better...
he even picked up his ball lastnight...
didn't want to play....but he picked it up...

Nolan

Nolan hasn't been feeling good for a few weeks...
1st his anal glad was stopped up...
then we took him back to the vet and he had a loose tooth..
they pulled the tooth...he still wasn't up to par...
he was drinking a lot of water...
we thought maybe his mouth was still sore...
he lost a couple of pounds...
he was pottying alot...
well...he was drinking so much water...
then he had a accident in the house...
we knew something was up...
maybe a urinary tract infection...
we went back to the vet...
we found out Nolan is diabetic...
he has to have insulin shots twice a day...
the vet said schnauzers are prone to diabitis...
hopefully we will be able to get his insulin regulated soon...
we're hoping we got it early...
and he will have lots of good years left...
