Cady’s Goofy Photographs

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.

Fresh ink for Cady

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.

Cady’s 7th Birthday

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.
