My own mama say I'm thugged out

Rich and I are mildly addicted to tide-pooling at the beach. We are getting familiar with the tide schedules and I'm looking forward to a -5 tide on May 5. We have yet to find anything really cool like an octopus or a shark or something, but we have found some neat little sea creatures and shells. We like to bring a few dogs down with us and let them run around and explore, though each time we go down, there are more RVs and tourists. Today we took Capiche and Roy, neither of whom were very much help looking for creepy-crawlies. Roy didn't like the water much and Capiche just peed and pooped in the tide pools. Anyway, Rich and I start work this week so our leisurely days of beach dwelling are numbered. Here are some photos of the beach and dog yard from the past few days, and a short video of the pups who turn four weeks tomorrow! They're wrestling like crazy and already eating soaked kibble. Soon they'll be asking for money and the car keys...oy vey...

Making fish-head stew with our cod!

Me and my boy Doyon (who I now call Sweet Dee) at, you guessed it, the beach!

I rarely like tilted horizon pics, but I think this works...

Super low tide today.

Low tide equals coolio patterns.

Hi "A girl and her dogs"-- just happen to be living the exact life I'd like to be living, only I'm probably old enough to be your mom!!! Good for you.

Had I discovered mushing in my 20s or 30s, well, I'd probably have completely devolved into a canine by now!

I'm a musher wannabe in Minnesota. I would LOVE to have permission to post that adorable video of your new pups in an upcoming post. First, may I? And second, is it on YouTube? It would have been the perfect Mother's Day post! Too bad I didn't think of this sooner.

Hope you'll stop by and visit...I've posted a link to a video of DeeDee cooing to one of her pups during the Iditarod (way down in the right hand column). And several "mushing mania" posts are indexed.

Happy Handling and Mother's Day!


PS: Hope you can find time to keep blogging...sure is inspiring to your posts!
