I gotta tell you... it has, seriously, been a dog day today... in a good way!  You all know I'm such a cat mom, but there has been a few canine signals in the air today.  I know that a select few might get my meaning after this short read! 

Did anyone catch Petey's Blog?  If not... you gotta check it out!

Jim and I watched..." Marley and Me " as our date night movie of choice... ok , it was on FX..., but what a great flick!  If you haven't seen it .. you need to .. if you are a dog person or not.

 Jim has a long history with labs... some of his best memories of his life, before me, included this magnificent, intellectual, intuitive, adorable, and beautiful specimen of  "man's best friend"! After a walk down memory lane with Jim, I'm thinkin' ... why don't dogs live longer? Really!

I cried at Petey's sweet visit... I  cried with date night movie... I cried with all the memories of Jim's lost puppy loves... two of which I had the pleasure of loving... Ginger and Whiskey.. !

I guess the night has just gone to the dogs!

Our Grandpuppy... Cooper!

Love the movie and love dogs. Cooper is a cutey! Is he a rottweiler or a doberman?

He's a rott/ chocolate lab mix!

Wow! He should be a super high energy dog! I loved Marley & Me! We have a 11 1/2 year old retriever who was given 2 weeks to live in April 2010, diagnosed with congestive heart failure. Yet, she is with us and makes our days bright with her love and our love for her :)

Carrie, I think that pup of yours must feel the same way about you! I'd love to see a pic of her! And Cooper does have a lot of energy... it's a good thing the kids live 10 min from the beach! He Loves the beach... we have to spell the word around him or he goes nuts.

Have 2 male beagles myself. They have not been happy with the hot temps we've been having in SC.

About Me
I was a working mother of 2 boys! I didn't have much time for cooking... now that the boys are grown and on their own... I have been enjoying learning and appreciating the art of cooking. I started with a day of baking with my mother in law and I was hooked! Not to mention my new stepkids... what was two... now is four! Our family is growing we now have a grandson, Damien, and one on the way! My grandson loves his visits with Gramma and Grampa...We spend quality time in the kitchen snd chronical our visits here on AR!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! It is my therapy...I love to buy and read all types of recipe books ( call me old fashion ) but it's fun to pick out 1 recipe in a new book and try it the day I get the book!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I have great times cooking meals together! When the kids come to visit we let them request their menu of choice. Funny twist... my two boys request Jim's culinary feasts... Jim's two request Stepmom's dinner delights! Works out fine at the end of the day!
My cooking triumphs
Check out my pics, the wedding cake? It was my 1st attempt at a wedding cake... can you believe it... I still can't!
My cooking tragedies
so many... hard to pick just one! but isn't that the joy of cooking?
