SpringTimes...

Look at that sweet little innocent face....
 She's so happy to have some green grass to play in, gnaw on and just run around in...

 I also caught her digging in my empty garden... She's tried to hide a few things in there too... Admittily it is a tempting square of dirt to play in... She doesn't bother my flowers, but she can't seem to resist this area.. it is time to start teaching her this is an off limits area as planting is almost ready to begin...

 She's like - what?  I'm so innocent, just sitting here...

Grass = Good Times!

Just playing with Sylvia out in the grass.. I just grabbed some grass and rained it down on her... Who knew she loved raining grass!  She ate it, rolled in it, picked it up and played with it.. Just love to see her goofy side!




 Time for a quick Coffee break!
On another positive note for Sylvia, she hung out a little with my neighbors young son... Usually she's a little nervous of him and his little boy ways...but he was mellow, she was mellow and they just hung out and he would pet her and she was not nervous at all... it was so sweet!

Good Times at Yard Sale


We had a yard sale this weekend and brought Sylvia out from time to time to watch the going ons.. A little nervous about all the people milling around, she would accept some pets and also an occasional walk about before returning to her snuggle sack for a nice nap in the sun!

Visiting with Friends...

A visit to a friends house who has a new puppy... Sylvia wasn't too sure about Kiki - bigger and kind of in her face... She didn't mind letting Kiki know to keep her distance with some warning growls and baring of teeth...Kiki sorta listened but would forget and had to reminded a few times...

 However, when playing with Kiki, Sylvia wanted in the action too and was more than happy to join in!

 Okay, it got too rowdy, so she ran off to to find a calmer area...
 A little nervous around little Mia, but she learned that Mia was nice and enjoyed her pets and of course, some playtime from Cassie always calms the nerves!
 All and all, she did pretty good - it was pretty active for her and with reassurance and time away from the puppy, I think she enjoyed herself...

Gardening Time

Cassie was doing a little gardening so Sylvia came out to supervise, taste test and oversee the planting of some new bulbs...
 She does really love just hanging out in the sun...
 
A well deserved belly rub for being such a good gardening supervisor!
 Our in house bulb-smeller - I think she would eat them given the chance!

Nothing like the hard work of supervising some gardening to wear a pup out!

Home Sweet Home!

So poor Sasha didn't get to come with me when I left on my trip to Seattle on Sunday but stayed home... However.. on Thursday, her and Cassie both got to come... She looks so ready to go in the picture below...

 The hotel wasn't so much fun for her, and being stuck in a small room with 2 other dogs and 2 people made for cramped quarters, plus she didn't like it when any neighbors made noise... But she was happy to snooze on the bed and of course happy to hit the road again on Saturday to come home...
 The two pictures above.. it's like - wow, neat city...next, bleh..the city.. I'm over it...are we there yet?

A trip over the mountains... a visit to my dad in CleElum...first time she has been there... she barked at him til he got close enough to see him and then she was like "Oh I know you!" poor cloudy eyes...
 Then back home, sniffing her yard, making sure all was how she left it.. Of course, Sylvia was happy too.. in her bed on her corner of the couch!

Enjoying Oranges and Modeling!

Sylvia too got to try out an orange, but she just wanted to hide it. (though she loves herself some clementine orange slices).

She did well in the hotel but had trouble managing the stairs... Somehow, Cassie in the one day she was there, showed her how to do it and then she was a stairmaster! (I think it helped that we had her leashed to Sheriff so she could follow him, be tugged but not be pulled up by him)... Way to go Sylvia!


 A wonderful person donated some coats to us so I had Sheriff try out his modeling skills.. FIERCE!  I tried putting it on Sylvia but Sheriff would just try to eat it and pull it off of her... So her pictures will be coming :)

No more pictures of Sheriff but I know is having a blast with his new family and putting the "pink coat" incident behind him!
