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.
Note: The Southern Belle flower in the picture measured between 9 1/2 and 10 inches in diameter.
Groups I'm interested in -
Canine Companions for Independence (CCI)
Here is a photo of the CCI booth at the Horse & Pet Expo which was held at the Expo Center, Fort Washington, PA, Feb. 1998.
This photo was taken at the PETCO store in Warminster where the manager is presenting a check to CCI volunteers. About $ 13,000 was raised in the "Pat-the-Bunny" program (Clara in center).
That's puppy-in-training CHRYSTAL "checking out the check!"
The Phila. A's Historical Society -"http://philadelphiaathletics.org"
This is a shot of their booth at the Sportsfest held at the Convention Center in May , 1998. Here's a photo of Eddie Joost and me.
Clara, Bobby Shantz and John Addison, taken at the A's Reunion Breakfast in Nov. 1997 at the Warrington Inn.
