The Dogs in My Life

This is the Most Beautiful Dolly Dog. The bandana photos were taken as she celebrated July 4th. All were taken last year, I think. She is now 7 yrs. old.

This Shih Tzu is my Granddog Max, so named because when he arrived Arielle couldn't spell words with more than 3 letters!
He's now a year old and a real love.

This Yellow Lab is my Grand-Goddog Zoe (pronounced "Zo-ee"), who lives in Milwaukee next to my son Robert & his wife Peg. Since they are her official godparents, it was decided the Zoe must be my Grand-Goddog...(Just thinking-should she be my God-Granddog???). The picture was taken in June '98 when she was about 3 months old.

Some garden pictures:

The little garden picture shows my hibiscus plants (Southern Belle).
I am really pleased with them as I started them from seed last Jan. & nearly all survived.
The Dixie Belles have smaller flowers & the first one came out after we took this picture. The plants in the front are
White Impatiens - came back really well after a late spring rabbit feast! The others are "Polka Dot Plant"- I don't know the real name. Impatiens & polka dots came from plants via Produce Junction.

Editorial note: The Southern Belle flower in the picture measured between 9 1/2 and 10 inches in diameter.
