All set for a winter outing.

Sky, Gwah will be coming to see you on Thursday!

Random Act of Kindness

Today at target, an elder man named Paul ,thought Sky was so cute when she waved at him, that he said " I have something special for you" and he gave her a $2 bill. Mommy had him sign it so she would be reminded of him and always give back. "Pay it forward" begins at an early age!

Cool dogs at the dog show

Chinese Hairless Dog
They have to put sun screen on the
parts that don't have hair.

My favorite dog of the show.

Keeping their ears wrapped must be a requirement.

Don't think Lola could stand quiet for this long.

Sunday morning at the house.

Natalie getting ready for work.
In the off season, Natalie works at a very
cool dress shop called Elizabeth & Prince.
Mike & Lola reading the Sunday paper together.

Jeff has already gone to work at the bike shop.

There's no one to play with today!

What a fun week Gwah had with Sky! I miss those little giggles and playing hide & seek, having our cookie treats. You really know how to make Gwah happy.
Thanks Peggy & Jared for spending your Holiday with us and for bring Sky to
Palm Springs. You guys have created the perfect little girl.
