Weiner Walking and Shimmer


We've been having some fantastic "weiner walking" weather.
Fall has finally come ~ the temperatures have dropped and it's delightful.



Otis and Riley have been enjoying their walks...



and so have I.







~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Our granddaughter had her 11th birthday this past week and I surprised her with a painting of her cat, Shimmer. She was given this sweet little gray kitty last Christmas. Shimmer and Maddie are now best friends. I painted the background of the painting pink because that's Maddie's favorite color.

Happy Birthday, Maddie!



You can see more paintings here.


Enjoy your day!

Ha ha, that's such a cute way to describe our lovely weather here in NC. Glad you and the little weiners are enjoying your walks.
Belated birthday greetings to your granddaughter. That is such a special gift you made for her and you did such a beautiful job on it.

Amazing how the brisk weather perks up the doggies. It's just great.

It felt chilly here today and rained all day. I stayed in bed a little longer this morning to read a book..it felt great!
