The Dog days of Summer!

 I haven't talked about the animals in a while! 

Lucky is doing awesome. He keeps Frank in check and is the official food watcher over-er. He guards the food from the cats and makes sure that no one can take his feast. Lucky was a rescue dog that had been abused by multiple owners. His first owners beat him and then his second owners had children with disabilities and the kids were to rough with him, so we took him home and the rest is history. It's been 2 years that we have had him and he was very skidish when we got him and he would cower at almost anything. Since he has lived with us he has become less afraid and more open and playful. He loves car rides and visiting friends and is always well mannered. He is 100% more social and friendly then when we got him. We love him so much and he and Frank make a great team! P.S. I get asked all the time what kind of dog Lucky is and to be honest we aren't quiet sure. We know that he is wire hair Parson Russell (part of the Jack Russell family), but he has brindle spots and we aren't sure what else???

Frank or Frankenstein, is getting so big! He will be a year old in August and we think he's done growing. We acquired Frank on a whim. Jim and I were in Santa Cruz for out Anniversary last year (September) and my best friend sent me a picture of him. She was at the flea market and they had puppies and I told her to get me one and I would surprise Jim. Well Jim knew I was up to something and I told him and he was so mad! He said "I agreed to another dog, and the only thing I said was, no puppies, and Chihuahua, and you got us a Chihuahua puppy!". Well I really hadn't thought of that. I just saw cute puppy and said yes! When we got back home and went to my best friends house to pick him up, Frank waddled right over to Jim and it was love at first sight. I will say that we got really lucky, because I don't normally like little yappy dogs and Frank is not yappy and has almost no behavior problems. I really think that Lucky and Frank keep each other in line.  

 We have 2 cats as well, and we love them too, but our dogs are a huge part of our lives. They go with us on road trips and come with us almost everywhere. I will miss them very much this summer and I don't want to be cliche and say they are our dog children, but they kind of are! Here are a few more random pictures of the boys!

 Have a great day and talk to you soon!
