So far; so good. I like the pink/magenta colors. How about some close-ups of your two little garden helpers...they must be thrilled to get in on the action of the dig. Hurray! Thumbs up

It seems kind of odd but neither one of them is a digger. Only one of the little fellows is mine. The other one belongs to a friend who comes over and helps with projects. We usually double team projects to benefit us both.

Here are a few pictures of my friend's dog:

Like a lily pad in water. His fur balloons out.

Oh, they are adorable! Lovey dubby Thanks for the photos. My favorite is the sleeping pose. Thumbs up

Oh no...you asked if I have a dog? Yikes, be careful when you ask that question. You know that dog people are blabbermouths and photo freaks. Rolling on the floor laughing
Yes, I have a dog, but.....

I used to have only one dog name Jack. This is my original dog Jack; he is too sexy in his favorite shirt.

You can read about him occasionally in the Sandbox Forum where we post about our pets.

I also baby-sit/dog-sit for my daughter's American Bulldog.
Here is my 'granddig' Allie; she found a hole in the school yard and is investigating.

This photo showed us that Allie was getting fat so we put her on a diet.

Jack and Allie played well together; it was nice taking two dogs for a walk.
Jack and Allie like to pretend they are waiting for a bus.

Then one day some neighbor boys brought me a new dog and begged me to save the dog's life. The entire saga of the new dog, originally named 'Found' but later named 'George', can be found on the same pet chat thread so I won't repeat it here. It took a few weeks but I managed to get Jack and George to tolerate each other.
Jack, on the left and George; they dug a hole in my recliner chair so I got them a new love seat...which they love!

It was very difficult trying to juggle three dogs while I attempted to socialize the the newcomer. I honestly could not have succeeded without the kind people on the pet chat thread. Lovey dubby They listened to me whine and they gave me encouragement. Group hug
But finally, success! Hurray!
George in a rare quiet moment - notice he sleeps with one eye opened so he won't miss any action.

But the bigger challenge was to get the new dog accustomed to the American Bulldog...but all that work paid off. Here is the new dog George. He is playing on Allie as she sleeps.

So look on the left of this page and click on 'Forums', go down to the bottom of the page to click on 'Sandbox', then find us in 'Our Pets - Pet Discussion'.
We talk about many kinds of pets but mostly about dogs. Thumbs up
