The first series is on our most recent hike through the Uintas to capture the fall colors:

We also wanted to take pictures but it seems whenever we have a great shot of something she has to put her self between it and the camera so Ron threw a stick just to get her to move but it was swept out of her reach before she could get it:

You can see the littel stick floating away in the upper right corner...she really wanted it but it was very cold.

So she worked her way around never losing sight of the darn thing

She walked around sporting her stick for a full 15 minutes...she was so proud

She loves the water….in the snow or in water that is really gross…it makes no difference to her…but give her a bath and you might as well be killing her…

And her daily hikes are very important too. Sometimes she can show her stubborn side and pretend to not hear me when it is time to go…

When I got in the car she started paying attention but still would not budge…

However starting the engine lit a fire on her butt and she flew to the car….poor girl has abandonment issues in from her former life

Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge – 3

There has been quite the scuttle butt on Facebook about Pitbulls. There was a bulletin that Halloween this year is the official “Kill a Pit bull” day. I find this absolutely one of the most distasteful notions around. Yes, pit bulls can be dangerous as any dog can be in the wrong hands. But my experience has been when raised in love they can be one of the most affectionate dogs around. Here are pictures of my daughters pit bull Roux who does not have a mean bone in her body.

Pit bulls have gotten a bad rap because I people like Michael Vick and other dog fighting rings that turn these dogs into brutal beasts that are filled with hate, abuse and neglect. Then we get ignorance such as this that only breeds more hate and abuse and neglect.

I present to you Roux, the sweetest little pit bull around and then you can go to You Tube and see one sweet story after another on the love Pit bulls possess…

Fronia is my uncle’s Russian speaking dog. His wife and daughter are from Russia and not too long after he got married to my aunt Lena he got talked into getting a dog. So we all got in the car and went to the Humane Society. Adel, his step daughter, had her eye on a little chihuahua that wanted to eat my face so I told her maybe we should keep looking when I spotted her. There was the cutest little black dog stuck off to herself in the corner looking completely bewildered. Apparently she had just come in. I asked to see her and she was so sweet. I told Adel we had found our girl. So after being spayed…she had just come into her very first cycle…and her shots she came home and has been loved and treasured ever since. The day I took these pictures we went for a walk and normally Fronia is very timid with other dogs but for some reason she was feeling confident that day so had a nice romp with her new friend, a very rambunctious Husky. On our way back to the car I ran into these long haired Dachshunds that we absolutely adorable and all to willing to pose for me.

Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge 1.

When I saw this I got excited because I am ALL about my pets…( I was wondering if that includes husbands? No probably not) So without further ado for my debut week I will feature my favorites.

I will have to search my archives for my other ones…I have loved animals my whole life and even though I hate to lose them and they take a piece of me with them when they go it is well worth it.

Thanks for the challenge…this will be a lot of fun!!
