Mom's 'Garden' - Take two!

Image
Do you remember back in June when I showed you around my Mom's 'Garden' - all her potted plants on the deck?

Well...if not you can click the link above to go to the post...because this is an update! Some of her plants have gotten rather larger since then...

Like the minature rose bushes that flank the front doors!



The one on the left has espically gotten large...and so many flowers!


Mom thinks it's just so pretty!

Remember her little corner garden?


Still going strong! The geranium is looking a little worse for wear, (my aunt Sarah isn't a super great plant-sitter! BOL) but with some extra care and Miracle Grow mom says it'll bounce back!

Now, for the Dahlia plant...

...also still going strong!


It even get regular visitors to it's pretty flowers!


The little pot of coleus has gone BONKERS!


Mom just loves it!

Now, here are two things you didn't see last time.

These are at the top of the deck steps and are one of the first things you get to see. A window box of...well..…

Helping Dad

Image
For Mom's birthday last Monday (that's the 20th), Dad got Mom a new stereo for her car. He claimed she absoultly NEEDED one with this blue tooth thing.



Mom's old car radio.


I came to inspect the job after he had finished, just to make sure it was done correctly. 


Good job, Dad!


So Mom....

Image
...when are you going to stop slighting MY blog and being so lazy about it, huh?  You have a birthday on Monday, turn 30, and suddenly helping me work on MY blog isn't good enough for you?

You have to go out and be completely, 100% selfish and create another one that's all about you?

And here I thought you LOVED me or something, Mom.

I should have known as much when you wouldn't share that last bit of bacon with me...


I don't know Mom...I can't even look at you right now.

You should probably go and think about what you've NOT BEEN DOING, MAINLY PAYING ATTENTION TO MY BLOG done or something.

((Wes' Mom: So yeah...for anyone slightly interested I DID start a second blog. I really liked the blogs that Carol and Diana have started and so, for the most part, have copy-cat'd them. Sorry ladies! I did sort of add and element to it, though...photography.  If anyone is interested it's hosted on Wordpress and is called "Food.Fitness.Photography."  Wesley …

Fun in Photos

Or 'Mom's lazy to write today, so here's some picture's instead'

Or maybe more like 'Nothing's really going on, so here's some pictures.'





Wordless Wednesday

Stuck inside looking out!

Today I'm (and Honey!) are joining in on Blogpaws Wordless Wednesday blog hop.

Tasty Tuesday - Bacon eyes!

Image
Maybe you've seen this on my instagram earlier this week...but Mom couldn't help but post it here on my blog, too!

She just find my "OMGBACON!" face hysterical!

Black and White Sunday

Image
Today I'm joining in with Dachshund Nola and Sugar the Golden Retriever for their Black and White Sunday blog hop. 

Sunny Saturday Snoozes

Image
It's a really nice day today, but a bit how for running around and playing. 
So instead, I opted to find a nice spot to just lay down and snooze a bit.

A Better Look

Image
Mom went back and looked at a previous post about my new spiffy tag...and realized you can't really see the 'Little Jerk' side (stupid iphone posting...)! 
So...here's a better, close up picture of it. 



I have to say...I still don't get just why Mom would think such a thing. I mean really...I look NOTHING like she's advertising, right?


Yeah, that's what I thought. 
So why go and tell people the truth before they even get to know me? Let me meet me and then let me stop barking and making a horrible, demonic fuss they can make up their own minds!

A cool treat

Image
Mom brought home some all natural vanilla ice cream today.
She shared a bit with me!

It was very tasty!

Thought no matter how tasty, Mom says the odds of me getting more of it are pretty low, because as yummy as it tastes ice cream isn't so very good for pooches. 

Oh well, at least she shared a little with me - Better a taste of some then a whole lot of none!

Something New

Image
Mom got me something new today! 
Well, actually she says it was last month, but we got it in the mail today. 
It's a brand new tag for me, from Aggie's Anvil!

Mom blurred out her number because well, Internet, but other the that isn't it spiffy! 
Want to see it on me?

Hey...wait a minute! What's this 'Mommy's Little Jerk' business?! Where did my name go? 
Oh, it's a two sided tag? And you thought it would be funny? 
Well ha-ha, Mom. Ha-ha!

Black and White Sunday

Image
Whew that Rodeo sure took a lot out of me...took me up until now to get MOM up off her butt to post recover! 
Today we're joining in with Black and White Sunday hosted by Dachshund Nola and Sugar the Golden Retriever because it seems like the perfect way to ease back in.

It's RODEO day!

Image
OMDOMDOMD I can't believe it's FINALLY here! The day of the Blogville Rodeo!
I have been looking so forward to this event!
There is SO much fun stuff going on throughout Blogville today, and I am in quite a few events myself.
Just to name a few of these events....

Sad Dog Diary

Image
No, not MY sad dog diary...this video off YouTube Mom saw making a round on Facebook.

Since I've got nothin' going on today, and she figured Blogville might enjoy it I said she could post it here today.

Wes' Mom Note: Be warned...this video made me start crying I was laughing so hard. Enjoy!





Why do you have to tease me like that, mom?

Image
My Mom's sister (my Aunt Sarah) got a little kiddie type plastic pool for her dog, a lab mix by the name of Luna. Now, I may be a poodle and therefor a German water retriever...but I am not a big fan of water at all!

Mom thought it would be funny to try and tempt me into the pool of death by placing one of my favorite things in the middle...an empty water bottle.



Haha Mom....very funny.






Black and White Sunday

Image
Mom has been teaching me a simple new trick, she just calls it 'Paws On'.  It's really just me putting my front paws only on an object, like this bench...but hey! If she's going to give me treats for it...!!
Joining up today with Dachshund Nola and Sugar the Golden Retriever for their Black and White Sunday blog hop. 
Maybe. If Mom gets to the computer after work (she failed to do it last week!)

To all my friends

Image
First, to all my fellow friends in the United States of America with me:

I wish you a very safe and Happy 4th of July!
May the fireworks the humans enjoy setting off not be so scary, and  may a tasty hamburger or hot dog or both find it's way to your tummy!
BUT most of all may you have lots of FUN!


And to all my friend's who do not celebrate the 4th like we do in the USA...
Well, I wish you all the same things...just minus all the red, white and blue!

Especially the bits about the the hamburgers and/or hot dogs (because no matter what day or where you are they are delicious) and  of course the FUN!


Why Mom Stopped

Image
Or as I'm going to call this post....'A Total Lack of Wesley!' even though this is MY blog!

If you guessed because there were lots of butterflies, you were correct! 
Mom just loves butterflies (she even has a simple tattoo of one on her left shoulder) so anytime she spots any she tends to need to stop and admire it until it flutters away.

Most of the butterflies were of this variety:


Mom thinks, after some researching, that's it's something called a Great Spangled Fritillary, though she's not 100% sure. There are a few different types of butterfly all called that look exceedingly similar and it's making it hard to believe that she is 100% right. 
HA! Like that's possible!
That wasn't the only type there though! There were also a few of these guys:

Now he was much easier to identify - it's called Silver-Spotted Skipper!
The last type of butterfly Mom spotted was this little guy:


This one is called a Cabbage-White, and was the easiest of the butter…

Around the lake

Image
A few days ago, before mom went and took me to the torture's groomer's to have my hair stolen, we went for a nice walk around the lake across the street from Dad's house.
It wasn't a super long walk, but it WAS a super nice day.
Mom thought that I looked super handsome up against the bright green of these ferns!

Not far into our walk, Mom spotted this little guy watching us curiously from tree.



I told her he only LOOKED cute, and that he was probably really watching us to gather information. I tried to explain to her about all the crazy suspicious squirrel activity that's been happening throughout Blogville, but she said I was just being silly. 
I hope you're right Mom, BUT don't come crying to me when the squirrels really DO pull off some sort of sneaky evil attack! 
And DON'T say I didn't warn you!

Next on our walk we took a side-trip to the little secondary pond. Mom really likes this area...there's a little picnic table there along with a l…
