Too tired for TV

Koda decided that it was time for bed. She laid on the bed and twisted, lazily around onto her back. Her foot blocked my view of the television screen. A few minutes later, she found a comfortable spot and settled in for the night. Oh well, I was getting too tired to even watch TV. Thanks for the diversion and redirection Koda…Good Night!


Vigilant Dog

Spring training begins for our local Boys of Summer (Little League). Less field time for the local High Strung Dog, Koda. Just as long as she gets a chance at some foul balls, overthrown balls, etc…she is willing to share the field.

Coach Koda…in the dugout.

Happy Valentine’s Day

We’re here at the park enjoying this wonderful warm, mid-eighties weather…and would like to send all of you warm thoughts, wishes, and vibes from Koda, the High Strung Dog.


Dropping the Ball on New Year’s Eve – Madison Square Garden

Mom, you said a ball was gonna drop? Who’s gonna drop it? And can we play with it IN the garden they say it’s gonna be dropped in?

Watching New Year’s Rockin’ Eve on television with Koda….all the talk about a ball dropping in a garden…Koda was willing to rescue the ball from the garden…

Did you hear that?

Sunday after noon, practicing my Doberman Pinscher impression. But then I heard a noise…hear that?

Attack of the Blue Toy!

…the ‘ol shoulder drop and roll!…left foot, tip toes!


After looking at these pictures, I did notice a little dried mud on Koda from our morning walk. Mud splatter…nice Koda…wipe your paws next time…

How Did It Get So Late So Soon? A Very Short Day…

How did it get so late so soon?
It’s night before it’s afternoon.
December is here before it’s June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?
~Dr. Seuss
