Our friend Nana from Brazil had her mom Constanca Lucas an artist & children's book illustrator draw us. We love the drawings. The envelope is also art and the postcards of Nana are so cute. We plan to have the drawings, envelopes and postcards custom framed. Thanks Constanca & Nana.

    This weekend was a long weekend for mom. She was home for three days.

    On Saturdy is snowed. Only Daisy wanted to play outside. That makes two Saturdays in a row, that have been cold & snowy.

    On Sunday it was sunny, but the wind was really cold. On Monday it was warm and we lied about in the shade to stay cool.

    Then we lied about in the house.


    Kylie's Pink Baby is coming to visit us. She is on her way from Checker's house in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.

    Love Ruby & Penny

    Your soooo lucky to have an artist do your pictures. She did a grreat job. Sorry that it is still so cold and snowy for you. Doesn't your Mother Nature know that dachshunds are 70 degree dogs. Anything below that is too cold for us.
