Boudreaux Jr. went home and Bootsie is bestfriends with Avalon and Prada and Charmings puppies are here too!

Well, we recently went from having only two puppies to well alot more. Boudreaux Jr. was here for a little while until he went home to Bill and Pam and Bootsie his little sister is here and she made fast friends with Avalon.

Prada and Charming's puppies are here, Warner, Carter, Davis and Benedict. I think that Holly in Ohio would love to bring Benedict home. She loves his brindle markings.

Sarah is getting closer to her delivery date and she is a bit cranky. She is expecting puppies with Charming and from what I can tell she is going to have a nice sized litter. The weather has been considerably cooler in the mornings and it's nice for working outside in the earlier hours of the day. Lots to do and more to plan to do. But... it's all fun and good.:)

I'm concerned about Phil's Babs. She's ill and in the hospital. I hope she gets better. Poor Babs. She is such a wonderful little girl.

New photos of Bella and Boudreaux's babies and Sabine went home today.

Absolutely adorable is the only way to describe Bella and Boudreaux's babies. I got these photos last night and I am so proud of all five of them.

Their little collars were a gift from their Papa Boudreaux.

All of the babies have homes anxiously awaiting their arrival with the exception of Bootsie. Bootsie is looking for her home and can not wait to fill someone special with her beautiful little personality.

If you are interested in adopting Lil Bootsie then please give me a call at (985) 607-5837.

Oh and Sabine went home today to an awesome family in Gulfport, MS. They promised to take plenty of photos. I can't wait to see her in her new home. She is a wonderful little girl.:)

More Zinnias blooming and I think that Sabine has a new home.

I am so happy that more Zinnias are blooming. They are so beautiful. And I have an Adenium that took as well.

I got a call today from a family in Gulfport, MS who would love to adopt Sabine so I guess she'll be going home tomorrow. I had a chance to speak with Ricky, the daddy and he said that they really has been wanting a Boston for a while now and now is the time.

Congratulations to them all. They will pick her up tomorrow afternoon.

What else is going on? Well, we got that much needed rain. Oh, the ground was so happy for it as was all creation.:) Speaking of creation. I am in the process of creating a decorating plan and backyard oasis. I think that since the swimming pools have come down in price I'll go ahead and invest in a 15x48 above the ground. It's going to be so wonderful. Not big but big enough for us. I'll have to let everyone know how it progresses.

Also, soon Dede's puppies will be here. Bootsie and Lil Boudreaux who will be renamed Kidd. And I will have some puppies, little boys from Bobby and his dog Prada. So, they will be here by the 23rd. I am so excited.

Growing Plumerias!

Long time no post. I've been busy and so have my plumerias, growing that is. I am so excited! All of my cuttings seem to have taken and are showing signs of growth. Little leaves are emerging.:)

I am so pleased. This is so promising. And the Zinnias are blooming too.

Tavio went home and his now re-named Walter. I spoke with Kristen and she said that he is doing great. Very loving and sweet and extremely happy and healthy. She promises to send photos soon. I have to admit that since he was here a little longer then our other puppies I was really attached to him. It's harder to let the babies go when they stay here a little longer. Plus, Kristen had a trip planned and asked if I would keep him a little longer which I did. I did the same for Ainsley as well. Just more time to spend with them and enjoy them even more.

Currently I have four little girls looking for great homes, two who are ready to go home right now, Jeanette and Sabine. Bella and Boudreaux's Bootsie is looking for her forever home as well and she can go home August 3rd. And another little darling, Avalon, who will be able to go home August 7th.

If you are looking for a special little boy then I will have some available to go home August 3rd as well. They are the children of Prada and Chocolate Charming. They are partly brindle with beautiful faces and awesome personalities just like the girls. If you are interested in one of my babies then please let me know.

It is a beautiful day and we ought to get some rain, Thank goodness!!!

Wow! What a beautiful day today is. The sun is shining the birds are singing and we are expecting rain. Hooray! But we could have temperatures up to 106 degrees!!! Yikes.

Boudreaux bought his babies some presents and toys and they will be sent in the mail on Monday.

I got a wonderful report this week from Bonnie who has adopted Lucy, who is Babs and Boudreaux's baby. She is playing up a storm with her older sisters, Betsy and Porgy. Apparently Lucy has sparked some puppyhood out of Porgy.

It's wonderful working with honest, caring and wonderful families such as Bonnie and Mickey. I wouldn't have it any other way. :)

I got around to planting the Giant Zinnia seeds from Lori. I sure hope they grow. Giant Zinnias would be so beautiful cut and arranged in the vase. I would like to take up flower arranging as well. Back to the Giant Zinnias, if they do grow then I will have a lot of them to transplant and share with friends. I'll give some back to Lori.:) I planted over twenty starter pots of them, with a couple of seeds in each pot. I sure hope they make it. I'll have to tend to them well and keep them well watered in this heat.

Oh and I snapped some new photos of baby Avalon. She is so fat, soft and fluffy. :) She's simple adorable!

Amos is got snipped and we still haven't gotten any rain and Phat Baby has a new home.

Alright here's what happened today.

Amos went to Dr. Smith to get snipped. He has to spend the night over after his operation. And we will pick him up tomorrow early, bring him home and make sure that he stays comfortable.

I feel so bad for him but it had to be done.

Also, I don't mean to whine but we do need some rain. In fact we are long over due for some. I was getting hopeful that some was heading our way and so far not a drop.

Soon I hope. I visited Lori today and she gave me some seeds from her giant Zinnias. I am going to plant them and see what comes up. Also, she gave me a cutting from her Hydrangeas. I hope they do well. I'll baby them if need be.

My pots haven't arrived yet but soon.:)

***Also, I forgot to mention that Phat Baby has a new home.***
I retired Phat Baby after one litter because she is not built to have babies and she had a horrible time when she did have her litter so while she was having her c-section I advised the doctor to go ahead and spay her as well. Well, I've been a bit picky about the home she would go to and I was waiting until the right home came along and it did. Congratulations to Larry. His family has her now and they love her. She is a fat little Boston ball.:)

On the way.... books and stuff for cooks.

I am so excited!!!

I've been wanting some new books on gardening and I came across a book entitled, "How to grow more vegetables" and also "All new square foot gardening". Yup, I bought them on eBay and I can't wait for them to arrive. It was so convenient, from the same seller.

Also, I have new cookware on the way. Cuisinart 12 piece Multiclad Pro cookware set. I was eying this set and I did some research and now it's on it's way too. I can not wait!!!

We need new cookware as well.

Oh, and my first Zinnia bloomed. I am so happy about that. I did some reading online about propagating plants using a cutting and some rooting hormone and I picked up some of the rooting hormone today. I grew the Zinnias from seeds but I want to do some cuttings and have them grow that way.

I will post photos of my little first bloom Zinnia.

I'm still having pain from the accident. Hopefully, I'll start feeling better soon. I hate being in pain, but then who does?

What else? I'm going to try to learn some real Louisiana dishes to cook in my brand new pots. I am so excited about it all.

Oh, tomorrow Amos is going to see Dr. Smith for the snip snip. He gets carsick so the trip ought to be memorable.
