Dogs are a man’s best friend

Dog’s really are a man’s best friend and I am definitely a dog lover (and animals in general.)

Yesterday I had been working on a deck with my soon to be son-in-law.  We had just finished replacing several deck boards and adding a set of stairs.  After a couple of hard days work we were sitting down enjoying the new stairs.  His dog Archie was also enjoying the deck with us.  Archie went and played a while in the yard – when he returned I guess he decided that he wanted to “hang” out with me for a while.  Although I didn’t carry him around the yard, he did just hang out there scoping out the back yard from atop my head.  My wife grabbed a couple of great shots.

The other shots are of my labradoodle dogs Cuda (the boy named after my car) and Aurora (named by the youngest daughter.)

The puppies are Aurora’s that we had at the end of 2014 – while only seven are seen here she actually had ten!  I spent about 2 1/2 months taking care of them just before the holiday’s in 2014 – there were definitely some great presents for ten families back then!

Besides our two dogs we also have two cats who play with the dogs…when they can be bothered…you know how cats are!
