rock in a hard place

well, this is what it has come to for feeding brother. his tummy has settled down, but we have to put something in the bowl to slow him down while he eats. he gets so excited you know. Miss Julie says they make bowls with this kinda stuff built into it, but we'll keep the rock since he loves those so much. just glad he's feeling better. maybe you should try that Miss Morgan!

even boxers get the blues

even the best boxers are prone to tummy aches. and since we're not exactly the best, we get 'em too! mom and dad just got back from another trip and we got back from camp. brother seems to have come home with a tummy ache - i think he ate too much finger paint. but mom always fixes us up nice when that happens. she learned from my carpet pad eating incident that the best thing for a boxer's aching tummy is pumpkin & rice. so since brother has been feelin' a little off, she makes him our special treat. yummee! and since we have sympathy pains, i get to eat some too.
so here's the magic concoction!

and here's how brother looks when mom is getting it ready (notice the "fangs")

and here's what brother often looks like after eating it.

much better ma!

Empty Nest

well, we knew it had to come and this Sat it did! momma duck finally had her babies and shortly after they had to leave. mom was happy and sad at the same time.
at least we got to walk them out!  we had to be a little patient while they each made their way out of the nest - and we had to stay out of site!
 but then we got to escort them across the drive
through the yard
down the beach
and out to the river
we'll miss you guys! hope to see you again next year!
