Found a New Meme that's right up my alley

I recently came across a meme called Camera Critters, it's a blog where you post pictures of your "critters" animals of all sort from the Lions at the zoo to the bird in your backyard and then on Sunday evening the meme owner will pick a picture to showcase on her blog for the week. I thought this was perfect since I love to take pictures of my dog Buddy.

This picture is of my dog Buddy when we first got him 2 years ago. Boy has he grown since then. This is one of my favorite pictures of him.

The Big E Fair

We spent all day Monday at the Big E Fair in W. Springfield, MA ( We had a wonderful time. At the end of the day we were thankful we got a room instead of making the trip back home because boy was it a lot of walking and we barely sat down. It's about an hour and a half drive from our home but it wasn't a trip we would have been up for last night. I did have one big disappointment yesterday. A few weeks ago I received an email from House Mouse rubber stamp Co. stating come visit them at the Big E they will have a booth. We searched and searched and finally we found them but NO rubber stamps they had pre-max produced bookmarks, cards, calenders, and keychains with their images on them but NO stamps. On the bright side in another booth was a stamp Lady (Sarasota Stamps) she's from FL. I made 2 trips to her booth (3 stamps, 6 bottle of stickles, and 13 bottles of embossing powder).

Any how this cute little goat loved to have his picture taken. He stood right there like to say "I'm posing take my picture".

This was in the 4H booth I believe. That pumpkin the the far back is huge. It weighed 908 Lbs. that is the Big E's largest pumpkin to ever be entered.

Indiana Jones is made out of Legos. Jeff and I were taking turns taking our picture when the man running the booth came over and offered to take our picture together, which I thought was very nice.

This is the entrance into the midway!

This Donkey is smart. I was standing there watching him and he kept banging his head on the food container to say Hey jackass stop staring at me and feed me.

I did have one other disappointment while at the fair. For a good portion of the day my camera did not work, I dropped it. Finally, Jeff got tired of me crying about my camera that we sat down and he played with it and he couldn't get it to work. So then he took the memory card and batteries out and shook it put everything back in and it worked fine and still is working! So Thank you Jeffrey!

Peanut Butter Dog

First I must say the first picture of Buddy is my favorite. When we first purchased Buddy he was about 4 weeks old and was a wild little puppy. We hired a dog trainer and he came out and he gave us some guidance on how to discipline Buddy and he also mentioned a Kong (<--- click for more info on a kong) would occupy Buddy and keep him out of trouble. Well 2 years later Buddy is well behaved and he finally (just recently) got his Kong. We fill his Kong with peanut butter. Today the peanut butter jar was just about empty so Jeff gave the container to Buddy (yes he is spoiled). Buddy loved every minute of it.

And yes, we vacuum our rug every evening but you can tell it is filled with dog hair. That is because our house is built on dog fur and we wouldn't have it any other way. Well I would have a better color rug (its the original rug in the house, that's our next be project new rugs).

Handsome Dog

Buddy (our dog) hates to have his picture taken. When you turn on the camera it makes a beep and as soon as he hears the beep he gets up and moves. Tonight I was surprise that he laid on the bed and let me take his picture, not one not two pictures but 25 pictures! I have to play with the other settings on my camera to see if I can get the pictures without the "Pet Eye".

I love the first picture of him looking up, that was perfect timing. I will be scrapping that one for sure!

A little background on Buddy: He is a full breed yellow lab. He is 2 years old he will be 3 this February. He is very spoiled and he knows it. He loves to go in the car. We can not even spell the word ride in our house Buddy will go nuts he knows what it means. Laugh but I'm serious. If you say the word "Bye Bye" you best be taking him "Bye Bye" in the car with you otherwise you will have to wrestle him away from the door. This big ox sleeps on the bed with us, and when he's cold he goes under the covers. He's our buddy!

Good morning visitor

Happy Labor Day! I am enjoying the day off from work, catching up on my craft challenges.

This morning we woke up and Jeff pulled open the blinds and there was a visitor on the window. And yes, the window does need to be cleaned, it is dirty but that's not on the list of to do's today. Maybe in will be on the list of to do's in 3 weeks when I'm on vacation, we'll see.
Hope everyone is enjoying their day!
