We’ve been really busy and my human hasn’t had time to get to this blog and post my new photographs. I finally nudged him enough that he got it done tonight. I hope you like seeing what I’ve been up to this summer and at the start of fall. BTW, he got a tattoo of me on his arm. Right above the dog paws and names of his Labrador Retrievers that have traveled to the rainbow bridge. I think I look pretty sharp in ink – Cady
Of all the photos, I have saved of my dogs; I think I cherish the goofy ones the best. The ones where they are just acting like dogs and most people don’t get to see.
Behind Cady is a Poke Weed plant. Yes, there is a song (Poke Salad Annie) about it written and performed by Tony Joe White in 1969 and then sung Elvis Presley in 1970.
It’s poisonous. The toxins in Pokeweed, depending on what source you’re working from, range from deadly to mild.
With caution, young leaves and stems in the spring, before any red has crept into them, are harvested by legions of foragers and boiled in at least two changes of water, discarding the water afterward.

I had a tattoo done a long time ago for my 4 original Labrador Retrievers when they were all still with me. Now it serves as a tribute to them as they have all moved on to the rainbow bridge.
I’ve been thinking about doing something for Cady for awhile now. Today was the day. Here’s my fresh ink for Cady.
The tattoo for my original 4 labs.
And the whole upper arm.
Have a great 4th of July weekend everyone! Here are a few photos of Cady in her Independence Day accouterment.
I’m doing all right, getting good grades • The future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades • I gotta wear shades
Cady’s “I want a treat” face after her spa day (shampoo, conditioner, nail trim and cool bandana). She loves going to the groomer and the attention she gets. I found out that she jumps up on the grooming table all by herself and will also lift her paws and hold still for a nail trim.
Cady turned 7 on Sunday April 23rd. She indulged in peanut butter cake from the local dog bakery. Went on 2 car rides, 2 big walks, got lots of butt rubs (you know, that spot on their back right above the tail base), ear scratches and a little steak for dinner.
I brought her home from the humane society on May 14th 2016. She was a great find and we have been having lots of fun since she moved in with me.
