camping/road trip part two – film photos

The next day of our trip we made our way to New Mexico, but along the way we stopped at the Petrified National Forest Park in Arizona. It was a sunny and hot day, and all Kipling wanted to do was jump back into the air conditioned car – it was pretty funny. Whitney had […]

camping/road trip part one – film photos

We have been busy prepping and going on our 9 day camping/road trip back to Texas these last couple weeks. We wanted to visit Austin in the summer…and have our car…and bring Kipling, so a road trip it was! We broke in our new Subaru and got great use of our camping gear.Β Kipling is great […]

a hike and a dog

Yesterday I attempted my first ever solo hike with Kipling at Kenneth Hahn and learned two things. 1. Kipling is both the best and worst workout partner – she never stops. She is still a tugger, and she was going absolutely nuts over all of the gopher holes. She dragged me up the hill and […]

kipling turns three

We’ve had a lot to celebrate lately: holidays, new successes, big milestones, and Kipling’s 3rd birthday. Amongst all this, I’ve been insanely busy, which is why I’ve been a bit MIA over here. Kipling’s birthday is on Valentine’s day, and on that day I had to celebrate her, have a Valentine’s Day lunch with my […]

my baby love

A couple of weeks ago Kipling was attacked by another dog. Though she was okay afterwards (minus a couple of bite punctures), the whole thing did make my heart ache. She was her normal self almost immediately afterwards, but it still hurt to know that she was hurt and couldn’t do anything about it. I […]

saturday dog beach

I’m embarrassed to say it, but we hadn’t taken Kipling to the beach since last summer. Well, a few weekends ago we remedied that…even if we were only there for an hour. With the early sunset, we didn’t have much time before it got dark and too cold to withstand anymore. Of course, Kipling had […]

happy holidays!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! This is our family photo we used on our holiday cards this year. We tried to get Kipling to sit on the bench with us, but she decided to just hop up onto the table instead. We also took her to get her annual Santa picture taken before Christmas (see […]

christmas kipling

The past two years we haven’t been able to spend Christmas with Kipling, and it makes me sad each time. At least I can be reassured by the fact that she is staying with our neighbor, who not only spoils her, but has a dog for her to play with as well. My husband helped […]

leaf piles

I found a leaf pile! I’ve been wanting to take photos of Kipling in a pile of leaves, and as we were getting in our car to leave Griffith Park on a couple of weekends ago, I noticed, hey, a pile of leaves! Of course there were a lot of leaves strewn about throughout the […]

lion dog

I’ve wanted Kipling to be a lion for the past three years, and this year I finally found her a mane. Our plans this past Sunday were to go to the abandoned zoo in Griffith Park (something we’ve been wanting to do) and take photos of her inside the cages, you know, as a lion! […]
