We have another video up of Reagan and Oshie and will have another one coming soon! Enjoy!
This video has been up for a few days but I forgot to share it here. Enjoy!
This one has been up for a little while too! We absolutely loved having Reagan stay with us! We miss the little guy!
Hello! I hope everyone is having a great week so far. I only have one fact to share with you this week. 🙂
Golden Retriever puppies are the absolute cutest thing you will ever see! Need proof, just check these photos I took of our new friend Reagan!
No he is not ours but we wish he was! He is from the same breeder and rumor has it that his mom is Oshie’s sister which would make Oshie his uncle. He is 8 weeks old and is already clear that he is going to be one smart Golden. He is also the most calm/chill 8 week old puppy we have ever met! Come back next week for more Golden Retriever facts!
3 years ago today we brought Oshie home! We got one special pup and we are happy to have him as part of our family. We are looking forward to spending many more years with this special boy and hopefully adding another pup somewhere along the way. I put together a short slideshow of some of my favorite Oshie images from the past 3 years.
Another one of my shots from our Asheville trip in May.
This is a photo I took during our trip to Asheville a few months back. The ISO was really high for this photo thanks to being indoors and not using flash but I still love the way it came out. Lately I have been looking at this photo and contemplating trying to sell it. I was thinking maybe as greeting or thank you cards, or as small/medium prints due to the noise levels. What do you think? Would folks be interested and what kind of prices would be reasonable? Any advice from my fellow photographers that follow the blog would be much appreciated.
Anyway it was too precious not to share again.
Many people have a certain list of things that they like to do before they hit the sack. I like to make sure all lights are off, doors are locked, thermostats set and teeth brushed. Oshie has a ritual too. Parts of his ritual are cute and others are down right deplorable. Like a child, Oshie has a favorite blankie. The blanket is one that we have had for him since the day we brought him home. Every evening when it is time to go to bed, Oshie waits by the door to go outside. Once he is done marking the bushes for the millionth time he comes in and heads upstairs. Next he grabs his favorite blankie and brings it to the side of our bed. He then waits to be told to jump up ( yes he is completely spoiled and is allowed on the bed). Next is the part that is not so cute.
From the very first day we brought Oshie home at 7 weeks old he has been fascinated with blankets and towels. After the bath we gave him that first night home our innocent 7 week old puppy tried to hump the towel we dried him off with. It was cute and funny back then. Well he still has the same fetish for towels and blankets and while it can still be somewhat funny it is no longer as cute. So after he is told he can get on the bed he jumps up with his blanket and well, he tries to hump his favorite blankie.
He loves that blanket in more ways than one and it has taken more abuse than a blanket should. Here is a short video from last nights bedtime ritual.
What are we gonna do with this guy?
1 year of blogging! If you had told me over a year ago that I would be a blogger, I would have called you crazy. Sometimes I still can’t believe I have one. I have to admit it has been fun and I am looking forward to continuing to share my photos and stories about Oshie with you all. Thanks to everyone who has followed the site and also those that just stop by to comment and view my images. Cheers and happy blogging!
I will let the photos do most of the talking here. These 4 week old Golden Retriever puppies were at Asheville Green Cottage. As mentioned in a previous blog, Vicki and Neeraj have two goldens. Their 5 year old golden, Juni, had a litter of 9 at the beginning of May. We wanted to take one home so bad. Thanks to Vicki for letting us help socialize the little ones.
Seriously, who doesn’t love puppies? As always thanks for stopping by!
