First Morning Walk in 2011



Our new year started with a chilly winter walk with our sweet, gangly Elsie.  She is taking to her new life quite well.  Her ribs are not sticking out quite as much, and she is always greeting us with lots of puppy licks and snuggles.  She cracks us up all the time with the funny noises she makes, and the other night she growled at our next door neighbor's snowman.  Hilarious.


Walking on a leash is not yet her strong suit, but she's getting better every day.


We weren't able to stay out very long....it was soooo chilly.....


We spent a little time pondering the year that is now behind us.....such wonderful adventures.....so much stretching......so many things to be grateful for.....and looking at the new year ahead of us....



.....happy to be heading out toward the horizon together.

Wishing you all a peaceful first day of 2011....hope you are all staying warm and happy.  A great big thank you to all of our customers who came to the art studio for our Arctic Blast event.  It was so much fun to see all of you!  And the creations that were made....oh my!!!

Brrrrrrrrrrr! Glad your new fur baby is coming along, esp. with the leash walking. Thank you again for everything in the blog giveaway. We had so much fun with the box, and the ornaments were on our tree!

What a cutie, it made me giggle to think of her growing at a snowman.

Happy New Year.
