Labor Day Weekend

We played it pretty easy this last Labor Day weekend by hanging around the house, going out to eat, watching movies and spending a day up in Estes Park, CO with the pups.  It was so much fun and here are a few photos of our lovely holiday.

Tucker’s howling for the stick to be thrown…

He ended up bringing back a tree…

Frankie’s a bit scared of the water.

I hope you had a lovely weekend.  Welcome back to the working world. ♥R

let the fur fly

Oh boy has it been hot here in Colorado!  I can’t imagine what it must be like to have fur.  This year we decided to shave our Heeler-pups, but were told by the groomers that they highly recommend NOT shaving Blue Heelers (and some other breeds, so ask your groomers), because there is a 50% chance that their hair will NEVER grow back!!!  I’ve never heard such crazy talk.  We were also told that if their hair does grow back, it won’t be the same as before and they can get alopecia.  Yikes!  Who knew a shave could be so risky.  I didn’t believe it at first, but the Mr. Googled it and what she said was confirmed.  So, we decided not to shave them and we went the de-shedding route.  They look the same, but when I saw how much hair they pulled from their under-coat, I was more convinced that they’d be cool for the summer.  It’s just so hot for them right now.  Then, with our outrageously cold winters here, I didn’t want to risk them being bald forever, so I think we made the right choice.  In the end, they got a bath, blow dry, ear and eye wash, nail trim, de-shedding brush-out and bows.  They are shiny and new.  How about your pets, do they get any special summer groom?

Picnic In The Park

Today I thought I’d share just a FEW photos that we took yesterday at our little picnic in the park.  Ron and I had a picnic dinner and we finished off with one of the pups’ favorite games — FETCH!!!  They had a blast, as you can see.  They were so tired when they came home and slept hard.

I love how they are carrying the Dogzilla back together.  So sweet!

Look at that little eager tongue that’s sticking out!

Tucker taking a little break…

Frankie is too silly!

Longest tongue in town…

They had so much fun and so did we.  I love days like this.  What is your pups favorite game?

Oh! I took some product photos today for the shop update on Friday, so I’ll share a sneak peek tomorrow! Night! ♥RobbieLee

Impromptu Photoshoot

On Monday I was photographing for another post, when I was distracted by the cuteness overload of these guys!  So, naturally we held an impromptu photoshoot, featuring Frankie Li, Tucker Bean and Brutus James.  I love how they interact with each other, especially when they don’t know that you’re watching. They were just too cute not to share!

Have a great Wednesday! ♥RobbieLee

{color crave} Frankie

I’ve always loved color of any kind, especially color that pops!  I’ve always held onto the color values that I learned as a wee-one, and I’ve always understood color.  But it wasn’t until my college Color Theory course that I really started to pay attention to color and all that it has to offer.  I couln’t imagine a life without color.  It inspires me and keeps me focused.  For my love of color, I have decided to start a {color crave} series on my blog, basically breaking down some of my everyday photos.  My first one is of my pup, Frankie Li.  She is a beauty and she knows it.  She loves to pose for the camera, so it’s never hard to find a great shot.  I chose this photo because her baby-blues really pop and I think that is just the bees knees!  By breaking this photo down, i realized just how many colors she is made of.  I only displayed the main 5 though, because this would be a long post otherwise (smile).
