Puppy Love

Josie the Airedale and granddaughter Anna

 On the move.  What big paws you have…  
Light in all four eyes 

  Henry (2) plays with her.  He likes to keep watch on the front yard, too.  
 


Helping Grandma Load the Car

Had to get that cell phone to my eye as quickly as I could to capture this composition.  My son had called the kids to help me load up the car as I prepared to leave Columbus for Pittsburgh. Henry is tagging along.

They were all (including Henry) going on their own trip, a couple of hours away, to select the Airedale puppy they’ll pick up Labor Day Weekend.

Stay tuned!

Henry the Airedale Photobombs the Family Picture

The baby was crying,.  Not a good time to try to continue on with a photos shoot anyway. But it was an idea.

Penny was very happy to be front and center.


Penny Remembers Before the Baby Came

The blog is back in real time today. No flashbacks, no reblogs from six years ago.

Penny, the Golden Doodle, looks at the baby Charles and remembers when she was the center of attention.

Perhaps I should have made this a wordless Wednesday or a

You Write the Caption.

She’s adjusting.

(And not sure what cousin Anna is doing )

WordPress forgot to send a note- after 6 years of blogging. How could they?

I thought it was automatic.  An electronic note to me.  Six years is a long time.  Today’s post is #2132.

Six years ago today I started blogging at wordpress.  I thought at least they would send a notice… Congrats on Six Years of Blogging. I’ve seen badges on other blogs for years of blogging accomplished.

I told my granddaughter it was my blogaversary and she said, “What’s that?”

No drum roll, no brass band, waaaaah waaaah waaaaaah, whine, whine, whine,

No one really cares, just me.

This was the first photo I blogged on July 14, 2009.

Murphy passed away and Michael is going to be ten in August.

Golden Doodle and Grandma

With a new baby in the house, Penny seeks reassurance and is probably wondering when baby Charlie will be leaving. It’s an adjustment .

My daughter Laura , (the new mother) shot this quick moment today as I was getting up.

You saw Penny’s paw included in the new family handshake a couple posts ago.

Penny the Golden Doodle expressing how she feels.

Here she is photobombing during the first bath the other day

The night Charles was born, I brought a cloth diaper from the hospital so she could get his scent. Little did she know how life would change.

On the front porch with the human members of the family. Sorry Penny.

P.s.  Tomorrow after this posts, my DIL will tell me Henry the Airedale is upset because  he isn’t featured or included on the blog.

Thanks V for the idea to blog Penny and Grandma


New Family Handshake

You know those photo greeting cards with the tiny hand in the big hand?

The touching closeups?

I was going for a similar feel with the new parents and grandson Charlie who was a week and a day.

New Family handshake

 

 

Oops. Add one eager Golden Doodle.  Penny’s paw added to the photo.

New Family handshake plus pennyThe new family handshake!

I asked these girls if they would pose with their selfie stick so I could show my high school students in photography class next week.  Later I asked where they were from….. Long Island!
