This is Jack - he is the first dog I have owned since 1988. He's been with us since November 2006. We are crazy about him - he is a sweet Parti-Pomeranian. I keep his fur short because it is much easier to maintain. He's 10 pounds, but he thinks BIG! We are not sure but guess he is 9-10 years old. Jack LOVES to take walks. We can hardly put his leash on him because he gets so wound up. He was a stray that someone found and we ended up with - we are lucky to have him! He's actually a cat in a dog's body. He has many of their characteristics. My daughters have taught him some tricks and try really hard to get him to "talk."
Meet Miss Sophie. Sophie turned 2 in February. She is very sweet and loving - she loves to cuddle. Strangers, however, would never get this feeling. She gets downright nasty when new people come over. We really try to work on that. but it is slow progress. She definitely can't be Chairman of the Welcome Committee. Sophie was living with neighbors of my friend from work, Elaine. She is so entertaining and we love to watch her. Sophie is a Schnauzer-Shih Tzu mix and her fur is changing. She is loud and stubborn. Her walks start off well, but then she gets to the end and wants to stop. I have to watch her because she will eat literally anything. She weighs approximately 18 pounds. We love having her around.
They are all spiffed up in these pictures. They must have been to the groomer the day we took these pictures.
If you have a dog(s), I would love to hear about them.

We love to try new places - especially for breakfast. Kate was watching Guy Fieri's Diners and Drive-in show and this one featured Over Easy located at 40th Street and Indian School. Kate ordered the Carmelized Banana Pecan Brioche French Toast (1/2 order). I ordered the Cheddar Jalapeno Biscuits with Sausage Gravy (1/2 order). Kimmy worked late and slept in. We both ordered the Over Easy Iced Coffee. It is not a sweet drink, but has cinnamon, cardamon, and a very small hint of mint - very smooth. We both really enjoyed our breakfast - the place is small and most of the seating is outside, so get there early. They open at 6:30. We arrived around 8:20 and walked right in.
two 6 X 6 canvasses. That word just doesn't look right, but my speller said it is.
If I have any extra time, it is usually spent at Paper Vineyard. When I'm not working, you can sometimes find me there. I want you to meet Adriana Granado, the owner of Paper Vineyard. She is funny, smart, on top of things, and did I say, funny? She is one of the most quick-witted persons I have ever met. And she laughs big, almost evil even. You can tell she likes to have a good time. Notice the "chalkboard wall" behind her - we have a Build-A-Book class taking place on Saturday, August 7. This is the second time we've offered this class. The first one was a HUGE success! Customers sign up, come in, and make a book. It's up to them as to whether they select whimsical, vintage, whatever. They are given many choices. Then they go to multiple stations to select embellishments and use different techniques in their books. Everyone had a really great time. You might want to check it out. The blog for Paper Vineyard is: www.papervineyardscrapbookstore.blogspot.com. The website is www.papervineyard.com.
I have a lot to post today, so I have to move on.

OR... The Most Wonderful Pic Ever - that's the name Vanessa gave it. Kim had errands in my work neighborhood and she and Vanessa met me for lunch yesterday. We went to the Mid City Kitchen located right here in Phoenix Plaza - where I work. I didn't take pictures of our food, but Kimmy and Vanessa both had turkey sandwiches (they were HUGE), and I had a bowl of chili. They do make wonderful chili. I know because I am picky about my chili. As soon as they sat down, I was told Vanessa wants to be on my blog again, so here they are. You can also see that Vanessa is double jointed. The picture first creeped us out, but we decided to go with it. I was taking the pictures and it was the best of about 7 shots. Thanks, you two, for meeting me for lunch. It is always a blast!
My computer is still down - hopefully it will get done this week. I am at the mercy of others in that department. I will be blog crazy when it gets back up. Until then...

I'm not sure where I got this picture, but I am guessing it came from Nicole. She loves crazy pictures of kids. I would say this qualifies. I do not know this little one, but she looks like she is full of energy - to put it politely.

I couldn't leave out Carter.
Have a great day!
