Shake--rattle---and roll

So today is Memorial day, and dad has it off, so this morning, mom came with, and-------we went to the park. It was quiet, just a few girls to see, (of course Quig, had to flirt)  and it wasn't too hot, but dad let me go swim anyway. It is one of the best things I get to do in any day.

I really like the deep water, Quig prefers the more shallow stuff, so we both got to go in the parts that made us happy. The park in Hopwood is perfect, except for one thing, they just won't let me off leash to show my amazing abilities in the water.  So there is always a silly leash in my way.

Anyway, we hope you like this little video, if only mom got better at it, there would be more.

Wishing all of you a creek to swim in, a brother to bully and parents who always think you are adorable.
Love, the fish like girl,

Memorial day 03

Who ever said dogs don’t look up…….


20150429_191220Okay I admit this was one really cool thing to look up at, and it wasn’t all that far up. But look up I did……

20150429_191324You have to admit that is the coolest bird’s nest you’ve ever seen. That little robin sure worked hard to make such a perfect little home for it’s baby’s.

20150429_191347But as all realtors will tell you location, location, location. Location is the most important part of any investment, and that poor little bird just didn’t think about the wild cats that roam our yard.

That little home was just too close to the ground and just too easy for those wily critters, so that beautiful little house stayed empty. But it makes us happy, and I tried to keep it safe, always on the alert to defend the helpless. And if by chance the birds come back to it, I will protect her little ones till they can fly away.

Love, always on watch,

Riding on Sprite-----


DSC_0761 (2)Mom and dad didn’t let us go along on this excursion, but at least shared this picture with us. Camille takes riding lessons, and this is her on Sprite. Mom went on and on about how well she did. Such a little girl on such a BIG dog, I mean horse.

I think she can make it go where she wants because as mom likes to say, she is a DeCarlo girl and they are strong and determined, and as, ( Annie likes to show,) a little bossy.

It was a fun trip, even if they sometimes left us behind. Maybe next time they will let us run with the BIG dogs……maybe not.

Have a fun day,

Love Annie, the--I don’t believe them that I’m bossy, girl

Let us introduce you to-----



20150503_094745 Mom thought that I’d never want to do anything but chase a cat. But then I saw Caroline, and I fell in love. I followed her around wherever she went, even tried to go up the stairs that had no back, when she ran away from all the commotion that sometimes went on in the big room.

I even cried a little when she wouldn’t come back down to see me. She is a real beauty, don’t you think?


20150503_102137Wanted to show you what dad did while we were at the farm. He so wants to be a farm hand, so Shelli took him under her wing and showed him how to curry a horse. Piper was very patient with the newbe and made my dad one happy guy.

Here’s to you getting to do something on your bucket list, dad got to curry a horse, and I got to fall in love with a cat. Oh what a day.

Love, a happy,


Want to see some horses?


20150502_163055This is GT and Elvis. Oh boy were they a big hit. The parents went on and on about how beautiful they are, and regal, how impressive they are.

20150502_163103But come on, we all know they are just really BIG dogs. I mean look they have 4 legs, two eyes and ears and like to nuzzle. Elvis even came when mom said his name. I am sure she told him what a good boy he was for doing that, she’s always happy when we come when called.

20150502_163210Sounds a lot like us if you ask me. Here is GT and Camille’s pony Piper. Now the “pony” is in the front. We just don’t understand, does that mean I’m a pony? (Annie speaking here) Since I’m a little smaller than Quig. Oh well people are funny the way they talk.

Wanted to share the really big dogs that Shelli and Camille have, I mean really cool horses………..

Have a happy day, and find something this pretty to look at,

Love, Annie

First of all-------HAPPY MOTHERS DAY


20150501_072435I know it’s been a very long time since we stopped by to say hello, but we’ve got a lot of excuses……..

First of all we went to see Andy, well really it was to see Camille, but the big extra was seeing Andy. Now we were only gone for 4 days, but look at the bags mom put together to take. And believe it or not---there were more already in the car. Annie and I were afraid they wouldn’t have room for us.

IMG_1295But they did and after a long ride, we arrived at the farm. Now I know we’ve said it before, but we really love that place. We are free to run and roll and sniff all kinds of stuff.

Here I am being a foot rest for Camille. She and dad were doing crafty stuff mom brought along. My fur is very soft, and little toes really like enjoying the feel of them.

20150502_135359This is Bosco, he’s something called a cat. Now the rumor is, dogs don’t like cats, but as you can see in this picture, that is just not true. I love Bosco and he loves me. I asked mom to bring him home with us, but she said it would make Camille sad,so we couldn’t do that. Next time around we’ll show you the cat Annie fell in love with.

20150503_094745Speaking of Annie, she found a spot to sun in and show how pretty she is.. Don’t worry she didn’t dig that hole, she just took it over for the few days we were there.

The farm is a wonderful place, we love being able to run and play and kiss a pretty little girl’s face. We slept the whole way home and then mom couldn’t get these pictures to download (what ever that means) so it took awhile to post. Sorry…….

More pictures of the horses, and dogs and cats to come, but until then, here’s to taking a little road trip to see the people you love.

We wish we could take one to see all of you,

Love, the adorable’s,

Quigley and Annie

As Shelli puts it-------

20141209_104037It’s our Gotcha day.
It’s three years ago today that we found our way to our forever home. We didn’t have a clue what we had in store for us, or even where we were going. But being just little kids, we went where they took us and did what they said we had to do.
Just imagine our surprise after days and days and days and days, (okay maybe it wasn’t that long, but it sure felt like it) when we stopped in front of this house, and this person came running out. Oh she was soooooooooo happy to see us.  She oohed and awed and when Annnie went belly up she rubbed it.
When she saw how shy I was, she touched me oh so gently, and told me she loved us already.
It was just the beginning of our love fest, it still goes on to this day, and they promise to go on for the rest of our lives.
So we are celebrating love today, and send it on to you. Because it is your gotcha day too, it’s the day we got you…..
With all our love,
Quigley and Annie the happiest dogs in the world
