My Dad is a CHEATER!!!! Camera Day

According to Days of the Year today is Camera Day. I thought it was a great chance to show you how my Dad cheated on Cody and I this past Saturday. You see, Mom and Dad went to Grand Rapids, MI on Saturday, June 24th (their wedding anniversary!), to attend the wedding of their cousin. They rode with my Uncle Bill and my Aunt Judy. Well, as evidenced by the photo below, it appears that SOME WOOFIE who just happens to be our cousin Punky, began celebrating early.

Hey Punky!! Why don’t you just make yourself a little more comfortable and steal my Dad while you are at it? He isn’t supposed to be petting other woofies!!!!

Barks and licks and jealous love, Dakota

(From the Mom: Punky is actually a sweetheart. She stayed on my husband’s lap during the entire  2 hour trip! She slept most of the way there, and was as content as could be!! We love her to pieces!!)

HOW TO CELEBRATE CAMERA DAY FROM DAYS OF THE YEAR: There is no better day than Camera Day to snap some photos during your lunch hour, on your commute to work, or whenever a moment of inspiration strikes. Cameras and photography have developed substantially over the years, from its early roots with the French inventor Joseph Niépce right up to modern-day digital photography.

Joseph Niépce was a French inventor; he is most noted as one of the inventors of photography and was a pioneer in the field. He developed the heliograph; a technique used to produce the world’s first known photograph in 1825, the view from the window at Le Gras the family’s estate.

Happy Anniversary to my Mom and Dad!

Today is my Mom and Dad’s wedding anniversary!!

Ok, so that Sheltie is NOT me, since I am NOT a girl! But it will work because that Sheltie is so cute! Mom and I found that photo ages ago but can’t credit it because we don’t remember where we got it!  Anyway, Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

Put me in Coach!! #putyourCAPon

Hi all! It’s Dakota and today Mom and I are excited because MOM’S TEAM (The defending American League Champions, The Cleveland Indians) kicks off the 2017 baseball season at 7pm today against the Texas Rangers.

Yes, Mom lives in Detroit, but she lived in Cleveland for 35 yrs so Cleveland is HER TEAM!!! Also, today it has been 16 years since Mom’s Dad passed and he was a HUGE baseball fan. It was thanks to Mom’s Dad that she developed a love for the “Boys of Summer” too.

So, because I am a Mama’s boy, I have adopted the Cleveland Indians as my team too! Oh and DAD’s team, (The Detroit Tigers) kicks off their season at 4pm today against the Chicago White Sox, but Mom and I don’t care about that! BOL!!! (Kidding! We like the Tigers when the Indians are out of contention).

Wishing EVERYONE’S team lots of luck this season! But…..Gooooooooooooooooo Tribe!!!!!

Barks and licks and love,

Dakota

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

National Pet Week continues and today we are featuring “Chico, who is a 14-year old Chihuahua and he is one of a few “fosters turned adopted fur babies” of my bonus daughter and son-in-law! He was blind in one eye when they adopted him a little over a year ago and now he is blind in both eyes. Chico had a hard life but since he was adopted by my bonus daughter and her husband, he is now receiving the love that he should have always been receiving!
