Cady turned 9 today. I took her and Irys for an afternoon hike and then picked up her cake from Four Muddy Paws. I think she is having a good birthday celebration. She shared her cake with her sister from another mister, Irys.
This is her second birthday with me as I adopted her on May 14, 2016, and just missed having her home for her 6th birthday by 16 days.

Pickleback wings – Test kitchen at home today.
I’ve tried pickleback shots, but I needed to make a batch of these to see what the pickle brine craze was about and what the flavour was like on wings.
Top – just brined overnight.
Bottom – brined and with Bourbon (Basel Hayden’s) Honey Sauce.
I like the sauced version better, but the brined only have a good pickle flavor.
Top photo – cooking complete. Bottom photo – heading into the oven
I haven’t posted photos of the 4-footed kids in a while. So here are a few of Cady and Irys.
Cady is the 8-year old black Labrador-English Setter mix, and Irys is the 1-year 2-month old tan and black German Shepherd-Akita mix.
We had a pretty good snowfall in the St. Louis region from 1/11 to 1/12/19. Some areas received up to 12-inches of snow. Lots of news coverage with many of the TV networks doing their broadcasts from here.
But this isn’t about all the problems people had commuting or just getting around the region for 24-hours. This is about fun. Dogs having fun. My 2 girls enjoying the new snowfall.
So here they are. Cady and Irys being dogs. Having fun. Enjoy!
Cady and Irys fresh and ready for the holidays. Nothing else to write. Just sharing these two photos.
