Happy New Year

All the dogs around here want to wish my readers a wonderful New Year.  
Here you'll see the grandson's Great Dane, Titan, whining until he gets Iris to give him her ball.

Next, you'll see Titan trying to make friends with Angel.

Angel is pretty scared of him, but she doesn't run away.  He'll bat those king-sized paws at her, but he never touches her with them, only smacks the ground beside her.  Titan spent most of the day with us yesterday.

He followed Cliff around for a couple of hours, as Cliff got on and off the tractor.  Titan is one of the best companion dogs I've ever seen; he wants to be around his people.  

The high spot of 2011 around here was Cliff's retirement.  We have both enjoyed it thoroughly.  Yes, money is tight sometimes, but Cliff is so relaxed and at ease knowing he doesn't have to go to work.  It was the right thing for him to do.  
As of today, my only goals for 2012 are to visit Wyoming and Montana, and to find another bred Jersey heifer or cow, since it looks like Bonnie isn't going to re-breed.  It would be nice if we could find one equal to her.  Yes, I do have Jody waiting in the wings, but she's still young, and it will be awhile before she can be bred.  
I am so thankful for everything we have.  

I wish every one of you, my readers, a wonderful 2012.  I see this is Leap Year!

Happy New Year!


Oh my goodness... Titan looked like he was going to swallow that ball whole. LOL Iris looked so perplexed. Angel is cute. But I don't recall seeing her before? I'm glad 2011 found you enjoying your hubby's retirement. I hope 2012 sees your dreams fulfilled. HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you.

I'm glad to hear Cliff's retirement fits him well. Sounds good to me.
Happy New Year to you guys and I hope you'll get to Wyoming and Montana this year.
You better start Jody on corn just in case times get tough, she'd look good on the grill.

I'm sending best wishes for a very Happy New Year your way. It sounds like you have some wonderful plans made.

I think this may be the first time Cliff had a speaking part in one of your movies...

Happy New Year!

Please be careful with Titan having that small of ball to play with. Dogs can get them caught in their throat especially large dogs like him.
