Spoiling the puppies!

Last night Rob and I went to hang out with our friends Alex and Stacie. It was a lot of fun, but secretly Stacie and I had a misison - - to make a dog bed for Eve. Since Eve had destroyed her last one, she has been sleeping on some blankets on the floor, but they don't quite compare to a soft, padded dog bed. So, I bought some fleece last weekend and some stuffing, and Stacie helped me make a dog bed for me (Ok, so Stacie did all the sowing, while I watched... yeah for talented friends!) We got home that night, and Eve was SO happy to lie in her new bed! (and SO sleepy from playing for a few hours with Anthony!)

And we the humans also had a good time hanging out, eating some more delicious bbq, and watching a movie.

Eve loves her new bed -- last night she slept like a rock, and since Rob and I were up kind of late last night, we didn't put her to bed until 1am. And then she slept on her new bed until 10AM!!!! Oh my goodness! I was expecting her up at 7:15 with an empty stomach as usual, but when I woke up I couldn't believe the clock. What a good dog! (and a marvelous dog bed!)

Happy Birthday to Rob!

Rob turned the big 26 yesterday! Happy Birthday Rob!

For his birthday I got him a few new video games -- we've been having fun over the past weekend playing Halo Wars and Fallout3 for the Xbox. Today a new game should come in the mail (Call of Duty)-- I'll have to go check now!

Last weekend Rob's family came up and we all went out to Famous Dave's BBQ, a new restaurant that just opened up in town. We tried the 'All American Feast', which had some ribs, brisket, chicken, coleslaw, potato salad, cornbread, beans, and all your typical BBQ food. It was delicious! We'll have to go back!

Best Buds

Either way you look at them, Eve and Anthony (another Guide Dog puppy) are best buds. They also had a lot of fun playing in the snow!

Snow Storm

Last week we had the biggest snow storm that I've seen since I lived here in this city (last winter was really mild).

Eve had a blast! The snow was up to her shoulders, and she loved jumping through it and plowing her way through our backyard. She also got to play with our neighbor dog, Brewster, and tired herself out. Rob and I were REALLY hoping for a snow day, but alas, we still had to go to work. Oh well, at least the snow was beatuiful, and Eve sure had fun!
