Day 56, February 25, 2012

The snow melted quickly.
Hank with his bone, keeping him busy, so
he doesn't dig holes.

Day 55, February 24, 2012

Yesterday, we hit an amazing 60 degrees.
Today, we wake up to snow.
It has been a crazy winter,
but not complaining!!!

Hank loves to wake up to snow!
He bolted out the front door and spent
most of the day playing outside.

Day 54, February 23, 2012

Yes, Hank is still digging.
So, we got some things to
keep the boy busy!
He seems to be a sweet tooth,
so he is enjoying his new diet,
sweet potato seems to do it for him!

Missed the heart lights this year,

Happy Birthday Anita Langer, my Mother-in-law.
Artist, Jacqueline Knell, who exhibits at the Square I Gallery in Claremont, CA is doing a project involving nine 8x8 portraits of the Hadassah women from Anita's Group to present at a southern California event in late March in Long Beach, CA.  We can't wait to see the finished project. 
 Anita said the project was such fun.

Al, David and I went to Chip's,
Three year running, best pancake in CT!
One of those places you have to try.
Yummy, and then on to the movies to see
"Safe House."  Fun afternoon, followed by
a dinner visit from Michael.

Today was "freedom" day for Hank.
The collar was removed and he was
free to run, jump, and play.
And he did all of the above and more!

Weighing in at 60 lbs.
A bit over 8 months old.


Hank has come a long way with fetch!

David and Hank, brothers!

Running, running, running!

Tired out!

Day 45, February 14, 2012

Hank likes to dig, so Al and I took advantage
of Hank being down from his surery and filled
his holes, these of course are in the front yard.
Saturday he will be back out in the yard,
 we will see if our "little" project worked or will
 we have to get more soil to fill more holes?
