Tell me Thursday and Happy Gotcha Day!

Sadly, I have been missing out on Tell me Thursdays. I see them go by week after week :( Lately has just been busy, hectic, draining, and just plain tiring. But I am back! Just in time for another Tell me Thursday and Riley's Gotcha Day!!!

We'll start off with Tell me Thursday from Crooks and Crazies.

1. What are you thankful for this week?
This week I am thankful for my dogs and loving husband. We have two wonderful dogs, who make us laugh just about everyday, and we could not imagine life without. I am thankful for my husband, who has taken on the responsibility of dealing with all the people, phone calls, and paper work it takes to buy this house!

2. How do you deal with a squeaker/shrieker/noisy dog?
I have never had to deal with a noisy dog before, but if I did I most likely would try to redirect his attention on to me, using treats and a verbal command.

3. Barbara wants to know: what would you say is ONE skill or attribute needed to be successful?
Patience. Which I could use more of...

4. Pippin wants to know: what are your favorite games?
Dog games? I love agility! For games around the home, I like to play tug or get them in the zoomie mood and just run around like no ones watching :P

As for people games, I am a sucker for card games, although I don't know how to play poker... don't judge. Also I do like my fair share of board games too.

5. What are some of your strategies for dealing with winter?
Winter? What's winter?..... Oh yea, that time of year that's suppose to get cold huh? LOL


Today 3 years ago we adopted Riley!
 Riley's picture from the day we adopted him! He was about 8 months old then, so I guess that puts him at about 4 years old. Time has flown by!

Today he got a new toy (a fire hose Frisbee with squeakers!) and a bully stick to celebrate a wonderful three years! And many more to come!
 We played with the new Frisbee outside, but I didn't have my camera. Riley mainly just wanted to chew on it, as seen in the pictures :) but Grace liked to fetch it!

 My nose!!! Both Riley and Grace ended up like this a few times while playing outside with it!

I turned around after taking pictures of Riley and this is what she was doing behind me.... Silly girl!

 Bully Stick Time!!!

 Nicely waiting for the go-a-head.

 Mommmm, his is bigger then mine!


 Nom Nom Nom

I love this dog!
