Eagles Pick Vick....

This about sums up how I feel too, Hector...

"Vick reinstated.....hmmmm"......

"I've met Vick........Not impressed.
The End."

The Pic & statement from former Vick dog "Hector" were taken from "The Vick Dogs Blog...hear it from the dogs themselves". The link is in my Favorite Things list to the left. You should check it out 'cause these dogs have plenty to say!

Be prepared to be WOWED by their AWESOMENESS!

Thanks again to Bad Rap, Donna Reynolds, Tim Racer, Roo & Clara Yori. You guys Rock!

Back from Vacation & I have Pictures!

We went on our annual Helen, Ga trip this weekend, but we went down a day earlier than the big bike group so we could check out more of the area sites. Boy are we glad that we did!

We stopped by a few Antique Shops. This one was in Helen & the shop & gardens were just lovely!

One was named "Good K-9 Antiques" & you know I had to go in there! LOL!

We stopped by the Indian Mound Memorial...

...Hunted up a Bike Repair Shop, to help out one of our fellow riders. We lucked onto a shop named "Rooster's" & got to meet this cute little girl...

...Stopped by a Kewl Place called "Goats on the Roof" and I could have stayed there all afternoon! The Goats really have people trained there. Folks buy food & then peddle a bicycle or crank a wheel to deliver the treat cups up to the eagerly waiting Goats! They have all sorts of aerial walkways & bridges to get them from one treat location to another. I knew my Friend & Goat Lover, Jen & her Daughter Riley would get a kick out of this place!

They even had a "Reserved Parking Spot" saved for my Dear Hubs!

As we were leaving, I found this Cute Little Feller relaxing by a shady bush...

Then it was back to town...

For dinner & drinks with our friends...

...and night time Carriage Rides through town...

On our way home, we stopped off in Cherokee for some quick shopping, where I snapped this colorful guy standing on a corner.

Our trip was a short weekend jaunt, but when we went to pick the boys up from the Doggie B&B, you would have thought we had been gone for Months!

It's fun to get away, but there is still "No Place Like Home!" :)

Phil Wins Second Place!

Can you stand just one more Phil story? LOL!

I entered my Sweet Philly Boy in our local Walmart's Annual Prettiest Pet Contest this year...on a flook really, and he won Second Place! I could not be more proud!

The voting goes like this...The pet pictures are attached to jars & people "vote" w/ change & dollar bills for the one they think is the prettiest. The money goes to a Great cause...The Childrens Miracle Network. There was lot's of competition too! I was really surprised when I got the call on Tuesday..."Congratulation! Phil has won second can come & pick up his pet portrait & gift certificate at any time."

I got off the phone & told Hubs...To which he smiles & says..."How much did YOU Vote?" What a Smarty Pants he is! Hmmmph! I voted 5 dollars worth, thank you very much! hehehe
