Dogsitting Fun

Our neighbor down the street asked us to watch her dogs for her while she was gone from Tuesday the 21st through part of Friday the 24th of December.  Zachary, with a little help and oversight from Heidi, was quite thrilled at the opportunity.

Following is the result of a collaborative effort between Zachary and Heidi to share with you just a little bit of the fun they had.

Introducing Mac
 "It's cold out here!"

Zach and Mac
"We're making faces at each other."

Introducing Jack
 "What do you think you're doing taking pictures of me?!"

Zach and Mac
"Nurse, I could use a little more help!"
(No, Zach was not operating.  Mac was allowing him to rub his belly.)

Jack and Mac
"Tag - You're it!"
(These boys like to ruff-house, just like any others.)
[Yes, "ruff-house" was an intentional misspelling.]

"Me again?!"

Zach with Mac again
"Awww, he cares about me!"

"Oh, is it my turn?"

Zach, Jack, Mac
"Get Zach!"

Zach and Mac
 Dogs ~ boys' best friends

Zach - as if you couldn't tell :-)
 "Heidi thought I looked a bit engrossed in the dogs."

Mac and Jack...or is it Jack and Mac???
"Do you know which is which? "

Dogs and Zach
"Oh, oh, a treat!!!!!!!!"

Thus, Mac, Jack, and Zach looked forward to spending a little while together every day and had a rather enjoyable time of it.

Birthday Catch-Up

Sorry folks, I ought to have been much, much, and significantly better about this.

Here are the ones that have occurred since the last birthday post.

Daddy's birthday was September 15th.

Valerie's birthday was September 17th.

Kimberly's birthday was October 26th.

Jared's golden birthday was October 28th.

I covered Lisa's on December 7th.

Rebecca's birthday was December 17th.

I'm sorry there are no pictures in this post, but that would delay the already wwwaaayyy toooooo long-ly procrastinated post all the more.

Can I start the new year with a clean record?
