Naughty Dog dog run

Today was a national holiday here in Japan so we decided to make the most of the beautiful autumn weather and head outdoors with Jazz and Dixie and Rena. We took them to a nearby dog run and all three had a good time. Rena has been dying to take J and D for a walk "by myself" so today in the safety of the dog run she took charge and J and D obliged her by walking around and around with her.

The last weekend in July Shin's brother's two Beagles, Rocky and Bobby came to stay overnight on their way to Texas. The family moved to Texas and Rocky and Bobby needed to be at the airport early in the morning for quarantine so they stayed the night before. Walking four beagles was a bit of a task! Glad I just have the two!

Keeping Cool in the Pool

Everyone keeping cool in the pool in our back yard. Jazz and Dixie don't care for swimming but it had been so hot that we decided to cool them down with a bit of a swim.

Happy 8th Birthday Jazz

Yesterday was Jazz's 8th Birthday so I baked another sugar/salt free cake that both Rena and dogs could eat. Everyone enjoyed the cake.

Happy 5th Birthday Dixie!

Yesterday was Kodomonohi (Children's Day) here in Japan and also our middle daughter, Dixie's 5th Birthday. We all went to a nearby dog run and had cake at home to celebrate.

It snowed again last night but this time the fall was quite substantial. By morning even though it was already melting quickly there was still a lot on the ground in the back garden for all the "kids" to enjoy. Jazz and Dixie ran around full tilt chasing each other through the white stuff while Rena and I made a snow man from things we found in the garden.
