Fifteen Minutes of Labrador

by Margaret on August 19, 2014

The following is fifteen minutes of photos. We could probably take a million more!

Kayla Copacabana loves to watch the world from our front porch.

She is one of our Grandma’s and is retired.

Sammy Sweetheart and Tina are mother and daughter.

Our other retired Grandma is Francie Pants.

She likes to take long walks around our yard.

 Gracie Clementine found a favorite stuffed animal.

Gracie is Ida Mae’s mom and Francie Pants’ daughter.

 Angela Mia is growing up! She turned one in April. Her mom is Jeannie.

 The girls found something interesting in the flower bed.

They seem to be grazing…

 Ida Mae, Tina and Sally are finding the apples that hit the ground.

They are always playing together.

Tina and Sally follow Mike everywhere! They are always hoping

to go in the truck with him so they stay close.

 Gracie Clementine says “It’s time to eat now”. Let’s go inside.

Angie and Sally Go Swimming!

by Margaret on July 2, 2014

It was just one year ago that we had Angie and Sally in our pool

and here they are again!

Being water dogs, they LOVED the experience!

Angie and Sally race back to the ladder together with the toy.


Angie waits for Sally to go down the ladder first.

Angie dives in without hesitation! She decided not to wait for Sally.

Sally dives in with her “Flying Ears”.

Angie leads with the toy in her mouth. Sally is right next to her.

Angie brought the toy back to Sally on this dive.

Ida Mae Gets Her Microchip

by Margaret on June 1, 2014

Ida Mae went to the Veterinarian’s office last week

for her rabies vaccination and her microchip.

Dr. Cliff Heidinger checks Ida’s heart, ears, teeth, etc.

She weighs 26 pounds.

 We were fooling around and turned Ida Mae into a different dog!

She has a dirty nose because she got into the mud right before we left for her appointment.

Ooh! That shot kind of pinched.

All smiles now.

Dr. Heidinger gives Ida Mae her microchip with her own personal I.D. number.

Ida Mae gets her nose up close to the microchip wand.

This instrument can “read” Ida Mae’s number.

 Ida Mae is reading her paper work and looking at her rabies tag.

Just sitting and waiting patiently.

Ahhhh…we’re going home and Ida Mae is sleepy.
