The Magnificent Seven

 Some people have emailed to ask how the 2 new dogs from Karen are fitting in with the pack. Well, look for yourself! Other than one decimated feather pillow---you would not believe how many feathers are in a  pillow!---and a disemboweled stuffed bear, nothing has been damaged. All seven ride in the Blazer to the Post Office, which is quite the sight. I love looking outside and seeing them all laying around the yard. Playtime is wonderful. They wear each other out. Of course, a good run with the gig helps too. It's been great fun having this many house dogs!

The seven with Jack---my friend Keith's dog---look in the door waiting to be let in or handed a treat. From left, front line:Chena, Pearl, Nahanni, Rosie. Second row: Spirit, Maggie, Fritter and Jack.
Fritter immediately took to the bear bench--Maggie's favorite spot. HA
Nahanni settled right in as a house dog. She follows me everywhere.
The gang on the deck. Sometimes it's a doggie obstacle course.
Then playtime starts. This is Maggie, Nahanni and Fritter.

Pearl, Fritter and Maggie in a free for all. And then the races begin!
                       Maggie and Fritter are the fastest dogs, but Pearl and Jack do really well too.

We even took one quick run with the gig. Maggie and Pearl in lead, Fritter and Nahanni in wheel. This was a fast run of two miles. WOW!
A quick stop for a drink in a puddle. Maggie laid down in it.

They all look pretty happy!
Back home and back to the bears for Fritter.
I love these dogs!


  1. Awesome pictures Donna, what a healthy well adjusted pack of precious furkids. Its like doggie paradise.

  2. I'll look forward to seeing the kids frolic around the yard. They are all beautiful/healthy. Mamma takes good care of them!

  3. Great post, Donna and great photos too. I'm so envious of your "cart". If anyone knows where I can purchase something like that or have one made, let me know.

  8. I'm so glad Nahanni & Fritter have settled in so well, Donna. They look really happy, like they've been there "forever"!

  9. Thanks for sharing these wonderful pics. How nice to have a mini-kennel all your own. They all look so happy--especially Fritter on the bear bench!!

  10. If Ken knew I was actively viewing sites like this, he would have a fit! I am realizing more and more, I have got to run dogs! I don't know how long I'll need to be 'dogless' before I win him over to Huskies..........but I am determined....and these pics fuel my determination! Great Family, Donna
