He was so skinny I was constantly worried about the little guys weight?

Ummmmm…..that is no longer a concern. He is a little filled out and is even getting his own little fat rolls. Not fat engough to be diet time, but fat engough to make for a happy mommy!!

(But the camera sits in Kansas City with doggies Grandma, bad me, leaving the camera behind.) Don’t worry, we will back soon. So don’t forget us.
Charlie, Coco and Mommy

NEW HOUSE!! A nice new house and a landlord who has a rescue. For once I am kind of speechless. It just worked out perfectly. Inside pictures will be coming in the next week or so, be patient. house.jpg

When you find that person you want to spend the rest of your life with you are honestly pretty lucky. Sometimes you spend all your life searching or thinking of  “that one lost love”. Not everyone finds love like that.  And to know that you have found that person must be an awesome feeling.
Today is a special Love Thursday because tomorrow my brother, Joe, is going to marry that special person. (that’s pretty amazing to say “my brother is getting married.” and it makes me feel old!!) Not only does Joe love Valerie but so do we. It’s pretty cool I get such an awesome sister-in-law. 🙂 I really don’t think that Joe could have found a better match.
I want to wish you two all the happiness in the world. Life is crazy. When people tell you the older you get time goes by faster….it does.  Remember to cherish every moment. Even when you drive each other crazy,  (and believe me, you will, LOL!) even then, it will be worth it.
Welcome to the family, Valerie!! We love you guys!!

So it hasn’t been a full year since we began our blogging adventure. And our mom has not been as good with our blog lately. (New Years Resolution’s have been made to post more often!) But here is a our year in review highlighting some of our best posts from each month!!from when our blog began……

My mommy makes me wear clothes!!:
OH NO! A blast from Charlie’s past. It is, afterall, a mothers job to embarass her son!!
I got Sonic!!!:
The Fawn sure enjoyed many cheeseburger snacks this year! It sure helped put some much needed weight on the guy!

Dogs Night Out #1:
Coco goes out on the town for another Dogs Night Out with the Three Dog Bakery!

What’s the Fawn been up to 
Well, this marked a HUGE milestone in the fawns life……NO MORE KENNEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The 19th Annual Dog n Jog


We love 4th of July
Yes we do. It is and always will be our most favorite holiday!!

 Pitbull Bans and how I feel:
I could just copy exactly what I wrote again. Just read it. Its important to our family and yours. Even if your not a pitbull.

I’m Sorry: 
Another good one. A video. About pitbulls. Please re-watch it. For us. Your doggies.

The Lake: Part II, Charlie has Fun! 
Yes, the little man did learn to swim this summer. Now the big question is……..Will he remember he can next year???

As Long as there’s steak in the end…..its ok
As if there was any bit of doubt in your mind if my doggies were spoiled I think this post just about cleared that up!

What your dog looks like….
Other than a dog. Remember this one?

 The Boxer “Presence”
A quote from this post: “Maybe this is just because I am a boxer mom (but I am a lab mom too remember) But these dogs have a certain “presence” to them.”

Odd things that scare us:
It amazes me the things that scare our dogs. Coco has been scared of some of the strangest things. To name a few, moving lighted Christmas deer, flies, a burning stump and now a stone lion on the Plaza. Not the best picture but we had to spend little time growling at the lion.

Play Hard, Sleep Harder. A Doggie’s Motto
I think this picture speaks for itself…..

Night Friz:
I could have had about 10,000 posts about Coco and her friz, but here is just one.

How a boxer gets things done:
Who could forget Charlie’s brief career in window washing??
Coco had a great costume but no first prize for Coco! Oh well, we had a blast!
Thankful: Those who love us
We are so loved. There are so many people who love us and care about us.

No Christmas Tree: Christmas Boxer
Ahhh….my funny little man. This does have a story. He was such a tired little man as I was stringing the lights out they accidentally went over him. And he continued sleeping.

Bad mom! Hardly any posts for December!!

We have had such a full year. We have done lots of traveling back and forth to Kansas City as you can tell. Who knows what 2007 will bring. Thoughts of moving back to KC have been played with. It is afterall, home to me and the doggies.

Merry Christmas Everyone and Happy New Year! I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and the 2007 is an wonderful year, although I don’t think its can get much better, afterall 2006 was the year of the dog! We do have to wait until 2018 until its another year of the dog!

This is a poem that is near to me. I found it just after rescuing Charlie……

I would’ve died that day if not for you.
I would’ve given up on life if not for your kind eyes.
I would’ve used my teeth in fear if not for your gentle hands.
I would have left this life believing that all humans don’t care
Believing there is no such thing as fur that isn’t matted,
skin that isn’t flea bitten, good food and enough of it, beds to sleep on,
someone to love me, to show me I deserve love just because I exist.
Your kind eyes, your loving smile, your gentle hands
Your big heart saved me…
You saved me from the terror of the pound,
Soothing away the memories of my old life.
You have taught me what it means to be loved.
I have seen you do the same for other dogs like me.
I have heard you ask yourself in times of despair
Why you do it
When there is no more money, no more room, no more homes
You open your heart a little bigger, stretch the money a little tighter
Make just a little more room…to save one more like me.
I tell you with the gratitude and love that shines in my eyes
In the best way I know how
Reminding you why you go on trying.
I am the reason
The dogs before me are the reason
As are the ones who come after.
Our lives would’ve been wasted, our love never given
We would die if not for you.
