Afternoon Stroll

My 9-year-old loves any and all creatures, from lizards to birds to guinea pigs. She's particularly fond of dogs—the smaller and cuddlier, the better. She adores our beagle, Daisy, whom she overindulges with too many biscuits and a prime sleeping spot at the foot of her bed.

When she heard that Grandma was bringing her little ball of fluff to Alaska for a visit, my daughter was beside herself with joy. Each day after school, she races home to play with the dogs and then bundle them up for their daily walk.

Grandma bought a blue Snuggie for Daisy.
You heard right. A Snuggie. FOR DOGS.

I refuse to discuss Ollie's designer sweater.

Dinner last night: pork chops with sour cherry sauce, mashed potatoes, green salad

Exactly one year ago today:
Late Afternoon on Turnagain Arm

Looks cold enough for that wee doggie to need a Snuggie!! :) My daughter is also 9 and would love us to have a dog - we have a hamster and are going to get a rabbit in the Spring.

HAHAHA, a Snuggie. Actually my friend has one for her Yorkipugawawa. (yeah, you read that right). :)
Your mom is so pretty! How fun to have a new dog in the house, and Grandma too of course. :)

A dog must have to be very fashionable in Alaska! Looks like Ollie packed very well for his visit.

That is one young-looking grandma!! Wow! I would have a hard time believing she was even out of her thirties!

I saw the snuggie for dogs at Bed, Bath and Beyond when I was doing my christmas shopping!! Couldn't believe now dogs have their own snuggies!

That's so precious. She looks so happy in the picture too!

Cute Kim! =) I love how your Mom and daughter are smiling so pretty and both dogs are looking in the same direction. =) Too funny! I love the snuggie and sweater by the way. ;)
I don't if I ever told you how much I enjoy you posting your dinners at the end of your blog. =) Sometimes I do a search for recipe similar to try. I love trying new things. =)
