Puppy Play

Mama Tasha has pretty much weaned the pups. That’s okay with them, they have one-year-old Phanny to play with. Too much fun.

 

Stop and Smell the Poppies

Getting a sneak peek of Spring around our place. The frying-pan poppies are scattered on the slope above the ponds. Lucky for me, I had help from one of Tasha and Sailor’s puppies to show them off. Let’s not forget Photobomb Phanny!

On the Hunt

Yesterday we celebrated three years with Sailor with a nice pheasant hunt. He was joined by Bliss and Phanny. Tasha stayed home with the puppies. We’ll have to make it up to her.

New Puppy Bliss

Earlier this month, Tim and I headed north to Saturday Night Golden Retrievers in Montana with Sailor, Tasha, and Bliss. We were on a special mission to bring home the newest addition to our retrievers.
Welcome home Phanny, our little Saturday Night Redtail Phantom.
Phanny’s off to a nice start. Bliss thinks we got a new puppy just for her as a playmate. Tasha keeps an eye on her. Sailor’s worried about sharing. Phanny is taking it all in. She loves swimming and getting her start as a hunting retriever. Here are some shots of Phanny’s first week home. Click to enlarge.
When you’re done here, check out Tim’s post and photos of the road trip.

Happy Birthday Tasha

Today is Tasha’s third birthday. We celebrated with some retrieves and photos in buttercups with her buds.

Happy Birthday Tasha!

In our area, the first showing of wild flowers happens around Tasha's birthday.
