pets: Foto Friday... Zeke's Gray Beard - 02/02/18 07:52 PM
I was inspired by Debbie Laity's Foto Friday Post, I Can't Adult Today 
So my Foto Friday is of my chocolate lab, Zeke. I haven't shared a photo of him lately. So here is a photo of Zeke. Notice how gray his beard and eyebrows are getting.  
Zeke my sweet fur baby
Zeke is 10 years old. When we are at the park, he runs and plays like he is a puppy.  At home, I watch him get up and it seems to take him longer to move. Zeke is the sweetest, lovable and friendly fur baby and always under my desk while I am working.  

pets: Thankful for our Lovable Furbaby, Zeke! - 09/27/17 05:42 PM
Our Chocolate Lab, Zeke, is 10 years old today, September 27th.  He is the best companion, sweet, lovable, and gentle furbaby!  So tonight he had steak and ice cream to celebrate his birthday.  He also had a date with his groomer today and he looks dashing with his new Halloween bandana.
Happy Birthday, Zeke!

pets: Photography Contest, Real Life - Animals - 11/21/16 01:38 PM
If you have been following my blog you knew I would post a photo of my sweet, lovable fur baby, Zeke, our Chocolate Lab, for Dick Greenberg's Photography Contest.
Zeke loves to play ball.  I captured this photo on our back deck when Claude put his hat on Zeke while he had the baseball in his mouth ...  wanting Claude to throw the ball again, and again and again. This photo was taken two years ago using my Android Edge 6 camera phone. 
This photo is an entry to Dick Greenberg's Photography Contest, Real Life - Animals.

pets: Zeke and His New Toys - 01/10/16 02:49 AM
Jane, a good friend of ours, always sends Zeke Christmas toys...usually balls, which he enjoys so much. I believe he has ten or more balls and most are out in the yard or the garage.  Zeke always likes to take a ball with him when he goes outdoors. Needless to say, he forgets to bring the ball(s) back with him.
Below is a photo of Zeke and his two new balls.
The orange ball in Zeke's mouth squeaks....his favorite.

Zeke's Christmas 2014
Our chocolate lab, Zeke, provides us much joy all year long.  He seems to know something special will happen during Christmas. 
He loves getting his stocking and pulling out his gifts.  His favorite is the rope ball. He also got a rubber ball that stays outside as my husband and I have almost fallen on the they remain in the garage or in the yard.   Zeke also enjoyed the Christmas cookies from Plow and Hearth and a few other things. All in all Zeke had a great Christmas. Of course, we did just watching … (20 comments)

Meet Scout!
Scout is the cutest puppy.  She is part Collie and Lab.... and is so precious.

My two sisters, Avis and Linda, adopted this puppy.  Scout and her brother were found on the side of the road and my sisters took the girl puppy and named her Scout. 
On our way to Vero Beach, FL we stopped in Charlotte NC to see my sisters and the newest member of the family, Scout.  Needless to say Zeke, my chocolate lab, thought that Scout was a pesky little girl that followed him around.  Zeke would … (19 comments)

pets: How we got our beloved Chocolate Lab! - 04/03/12 01:52 PM

We have had Zeke, our Chocolate Lab, for four years and he is definitely a member of our family.  Growing up we always had animals. Never had to buy them as they just seemed to appear at our house.  Perhaps because of all the eleven kids plus all the neighborhood children seem to stay at our house.  But, to the point, dogs were never allowed in the house.

Anyway, my very first dog was Geo was a Tibetan Terrier, black and white, and was adorable.  We were lucky enough to adopt Geo from the Arlington, VA pound.  Geo … (32 comments)
