Southern Holidays

Zeke kicked off Thanksgiving festivities with a trip to the beach.  He had a wonderful time playing with his bumper at Sullivan's but before he was allowed to crash through waves mom made him pose for a picture.  Potential Christmas card 2014 material???

He got to swim... a lot! In the pool..
and at the beach!

Zeke wants to relax in the hammock too.  Not sure that's such a great idea.

Blue Ridge Parkway - Price Lake

Zeke visited mom while she was working in North Carolina.  We took a short hike around the Price Lake loop off the Blue Ridge Parkway.  Zeke enjoyed the multiple places to jump in for a quick swim.

Labs make the best of April showers

We are ready for these April showers to turn into a wonderful spring, but Zeke and Miller know how to have a good time when the backyard gets turned into a pond.

Relaxing in the Foothills

Mom had some work to do in North Carolina, so the whole family joined her again and stayed in a cabin in the Pisgah National Forest. We didn't go out on too many adventures this trip, but had a nice time relaxing.

PetFest 2014

Zeke headed out later in the day Saturday to check out this year's Pet Fest. By doing so he missed the rain and crowds, but unfortunately also missed the dock diving time. We sought comfort in the pup cream available from the King of Pops mobile set up.  Zeke wasn't too upset.

Missing little Brown Betty aka Zeke's mini me

Some friends of ours just got a new pup, and it made me think of our most recent Lowcountry Lab Rescue girl.  Betty was our boomerang foster - we fostered her from her litter that was brought to the shelter, she went to a home, it did not work out and she was returned to us.  There were some real moments of "Should we just keep her?". She fit in well with our kids, as can be from the above picture of both Betty and Zeke napping on my lap.  Betty was also a very smart and loving girl, I certainly don't buy into the "behavioral problems" that was the complaint against her.  However as it goes, another adoptive family came to meet her, they had recently lost one of their furry family.  They really seemed committed to giving Betty the love and home she deserved.  Betty is now a new "mama's good girl" and doing well with her new forever family!  Sometimes happy endings take a little extra time. 

   As a bonus, here is a video of Betty requesting extra head scratches.

Happy Birthday Zeke!

Zeke turned 6 years old yesterday, and was greeted with an ice storm/flurries. Being the adventurer that he is, Zeke didn't let a little wintry mix stop him from enjoying the day.  Although we are going to postpone his party until things thaw out.

Betty the Burrito

We have Brown Betty back, a fostering boomerang.  Her first adoptive family didn't work out, so now she is back with us until she finds her forever home.
