Merry Christmas !

Hey guys, Long time, no see. I just wanted to share some photos I took yesterday. I am really enjoying this Christmas Season. Tate is so much fun at this age. He loves to say " HO HO HO "and is train crazy. . . We are wearing out " The Polar Express".

I am also loving my Standard Poodle!!! Let me let you in on a well kept secret. . . there is no better breed of dog ! She is the best dog in the world, so much fun! Carley is so smart and loving, I can't say enough good things about her. I will never have any other breed.

I hope everyone has a Wonderful Christmas. I miss talking with you, but I have moved on to other things. My disembarkment Syndrome illness is so much better ! I still have it, but due to all the dog walking ect. I am much better. Thanks to all of you that continue to check up on me. I love you guys!



  1. Great to hear from you Vicky - and your photography just keeps being an inspiration.

  2. *** Dearest Vicky-girl~~~ Lordie, it's been AAAGES!!! I can't BELIEEEVE how BIG n' PRECIOUS Tate is now(and SOOOO CUTE... well, I KNEW he WOULD be!). My, but kids DO grow SOOOO QUICKLY!!! Sooo happy you have that sweet lil' man in your life!!!

    And your Carley??? She looks, and I KNOW "IS", wonderful!!! Jim's Mom had a beautiful, S*M*A*R*T, black Standard Poodle when he was young... And lemme tell you, TOTO really W*A*S INCREDIBLY SMART~~~ almost "scarey" that he "knew n' understood" so much!!!

    It's so good to "see" you again here this a.m.... Have missed "talking" with you, but now that I know all is well, it's all OK!!!

    HAPPIEST of HOLIDAYS, dear ol' pal!

    ***P.S. BELLE got a new "sister"... her name is MARNIE and she's a darling German Shorthaired Pointer like Belle, of course!... precocious lil' pup, verrry smart, gr888 bloodlines... the two are "learning" about each other... gets "tenuous" only still just "occassionally", but better n' better by the week! Pup MARNIE tried to get on OUR BED, which is really "BELLE'S BED"... (she just lets us sleep there! Grins!), and BELLE was rather "alert/protective" when Marnie jumped up... hilarious!!!)...

    Life is good... Jim's INCREDIBLY HAPPPILY "RETIRED" (goes a mile a minute tho, w/ golf n' hunting... he has more ENERGY than an 18 year old kid~~ sooo nice to see him truly enjoying all life has to offer!!!)... It's been TWO YEARS since breaking my back, & the last three months have proven all that physical therapy really WAS the trick!!! It's WONDERFUL to feel well, and be able to really "DO" things again! LIFE IS GOOD!!!
    XOXO, Me

  3. Hey you! Awesome pictures. The one with him on the fence is the best. I can't believe how big he's gotten! How old is he?

    Glad to hear you're feeling better and having fun.

    Your pup is such a cutie.

  4. Vicky: Nice to hear that you are better! i have been wondering about you, so glad you posted. A Christmas Blessing to you and your family, and may this New Year bring new adventures!

  5. It's so good to hear from you, Vicky! Your little Tate is growing up so fast! I know you must be having so much fun with him, he is such a beautiful little fellow, too. Hmmm...a standard poodle. Most people aren't allergic to them either. Maybe I will get one of those when we get a dog, as if we ever would. I love the idea of it, anyway. Have a wonderful Christmas, my friend.
    Hugs, Cindy

    Thanks everyone! It has been so nice to hear from each of you. Linda, send me a picture of that new baby of yours...

  10. Merry Christmas Vicky. I know that's Little Man Tate but he's just so grown up looking. Where has the time gone quickly they grow.

    Glad to hear that you are doing well and the companionship of Carley is adding to your pleasure. It was also so wonderful to see a post from "Mom" and knowing all in well in her world as well.

    Merry Christmas to all.

  11. Hi Vicky,

    Love seeing you pop in; it's always a welcomed surprise. Hope you're doing well . . . and it appears you are! That little Tate is quite the man. As for Carly, she's so sweet. But, I hafta say I'm head over heels in love with Aussies. I've got Sam who's almost 6! Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday. Cheers -s

  12. Merry Christmas, Vicky ! So good to hear from you. I know what you mean about standard poodles and when you mix them with golden retrievers they are awesome too. Enjoy the holidays with your family.

Og at tiden alt håret straightners og hår jern fra dette merket var kjent som Good Hair Day tid hår straightners samt hår golf strykejern. Det var en utmerket markedsføringsstrategi.
