What our kids did…


Sophie & Shamrock Saturday

While we were on our North Shore Craft Brewery Tour last Saturday, we were so lucky to drop off the dogs at the Buggles‘ house for an overnight stay! Sally and Ryan were more than happy to watch them. I am so grateful that we could make this long day trip happen because of them!

This was Sham & Sophie’s first overnight trip chez Cleopatra and Da Vinci; but they’ve been there before on occasion.

Like that time when Sophie was eyeing me…

Wait… How did she get up there?

And they did just fine {or so I’m told!} while we were gone. I truly hope that they behaved! Sally sent some photos during the day. They has just as beautiful of a day as we did up north!

Sophie played guard dog…

 And Sham made friends with Clea out of her kennel. 😉 He also learned hot o open the gate himself!


We always call Sophie the smart one. But it turns out Sham is smarter than we thought!

Thank you so much for taking care of our fur children, Sally and Ryan! Thanks, too, for sending the photos. We were relaxed all day knowing that they Sham and Sophie were with you and the Buggles.

But it sure was strange waking up on Sunday morning and no dogs around…

Happy Saturday!




The Buggles!


Sophie & Shamrock Saturday

Sophie and Sham hosted some friends this past week.

Look at these a-dog-able little Buggles!

Cleopatra is the shy tri-color Cavalier. At the beginning of the week, it was hard to coax her out her kennel.


Though nervous, she soon warmed up. What I find absolutely darling is that her markings make her look like she is always angry with you.

But she most certainly is not! She’ll give you that look even while she wags her tail or you give her a treat. My heart is melting. ❤

Her older brother, DaVinci, is much more social.


 He sat on my lap all Sunday morning and snuggled!


I used to call DaVinci my make-out buddy when my friend Sally picked him up ten years ago. He’s always got that tongue hanging out and loves to give kisses. Some things never change!

Rob spent one weekend morning with the kids in the backyard. Look how green everything is starting to get. Yay, spring!


I adore that photo, especially DaVinci’s pose because that is classic him. I just wish we could see Clea’s head!

I got a few close-ups instead:

We had such a nice week of weather, that DaVinci’s favorite thing to do quickly became lying underneath our hammock {and, often, drifting off to sleep}.


Oh how I will miss the Buggles. Until next time…

Happy Saturday!
