I could use some snow right about now. (Clayton on the left.)

Scooter didn’t really NEED the sweater, it just looked so darn funny on him! (Spenser up on high.)

Just like the inside, the outside of our house was a hideous brown when we moved in. Having your house sided is an expensive proposition, so Phillip decided to do it himself. When not at the hospital during the summer of 2000, Captain Siding was hard at work. These are his assistants, who negotiated a very generous union contract which allowed for several hours of napping each day.

I’m pretty sure this is the only tinsel I’ve ever owned. I might still own it!

Mr. Man wasn’t always such a good sport with props, but he sure was here.

Matisse lived to be 17 years old. I can’t say he was the brightest poodle on the block. After Phillip moved the doggy door from a sliding glass door insert to the wall, Matisse would sit in front of where the old door was and (I guess) wait for it to open.

He also loved to be carried around with his head on my shoulder. Little baby Matisse. He was also afraid of bowls. I had to put his kibble on a plate.

Both of these are from 13 years ago. My oh my, do we look young! Notice Clayton’s tail wag in the top photo.

So THAT’S what color my hair used to be. Son of a gun!

If I remember correctly, the actual culprit was that beagle in the back pretending to sleep.

I’d say this speaks for itself.

I believe I took this in December of 2001. Clayton was on 7 weeks of crate rest due to what they thought was a spinal problem but which turned out to be an auto-immune disorder. He had several recurrences of it, all treated successfully with Prednisone. But at the time he went from crate to crate to outdoors on a leash. I had been laid off from work shortly after 9/11 and so I was able to take care of him all day. Some things (layoff) work out for the best.

So along with the open discussion on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I thought I’d also feature more oldies but goodies. This photo of Clayton is from December 1999.

I hope everyone had a nice (long) weekend. I didn’t do too much but Phillip marched in the town’s Memorial Day parade (here’s last year’s photo). He also sat up with me in the wee hours of Sunday night while I threw up. THAT’S true love!
