An Award & Seven Things About Our Crew

I received an award from Tracey at "Tracey's Crafty Scraps" If you need a grin, you should stop by her blog, she has a really fun sense of humor and has given me a lift on more than one occasion!

For the award you are to list 7 things about yourself. To change things up a bit, I decided that I wouldn't list 7 things about myself, but would tell you 7 things about the crew at Golden Pines.

1. They really love going for walks!
2. But some of the crew doesn't always come back right away when they're called and will sometimes wander off. Rudi?? Sheba?? Tanner??

3. Just like kids, they sometimes leave their toys outside... 4. But CC (the cat) makes sure they pick them up and bring them inside.

4. They are not too picky and pretty much all like the same things.
5. They also like new friends like Toby and Bubba.
6. But they don't like friends like Patch that don't share. 7. And at the end of the day the crew likes hanging out together.
Finally, Saturday is going to be a busy day for us. Bubba is starting swim-therapy to try and build muscle in his rear-end and hopefully improve his mobility. I'll try to take pictures and let you know how it goes.
I hope you have an enjoyable weekend!!


  1. Fun post!
    There's a lot of love at Golden Pines!
    Happy Weekend,

    PS...Hope it goes well w/ Bubba!

  2. awww lovely! well done on your award!! have a nice weekend xxx

  3. Such great photos, of beautiful Goldens.
    The last one is priceless.

    Sheila & Bob

  4. That was great Kim! I love seeing the dogs, can't get enough of them!!!! Is CC a full tuxedo cat? Pretty!

    I've been going to beg for new pictures of your kids, you must have read my mind!

  5. Congratulations on the Award! What a funny 7 things. I love the 7th, when they are all laying around. Thats just too cute. I would love to have that many Goldens around. Maybe someday!! :-)

  6. A very well deserved award! Your crew is, as always, charming.

    That is interesting about the swim therapy for Bubba. It works for humans and horses. Here's hoping that it works for Bubba.

  7. What a sweet group! I love the photo with them on the lead line, just like little children..:)
    I will look forward to seeing the swim pictures, have fun and don't fall in...

  9. Congratulations! Hope Bubba's therapy goes well. Your crew are just like kids everywhere.

  10. My husband and I are 'oohing' and 'ahhing' over these photos. I just love our furry family.

  11. Congratulations on your award, it is well deserved !
    I always smile looking at your "crew" pictures, they are smiling, I swear....

  12. Hi Kim
    Your blog is like medicine to the soul. We always feel like we have "come home" when we come to visit you.
    All the kids (pups) pictures are priceless. We love looking at everyone of the photos.
    We love them going for a walk, we love your trail, we love CC, we love them all sleeping together.
    We feel the peace that you do just by looking and reading your words.
    Congratulations on your award.
    This was fun to read- as always.
    Also, if you don't mind me saying this- but your comment on Maxmoms blog yesterday- we felt what you said. So true, you have a way with words.


  13. We always love seeing pictures of the gang. Nice to know those fun facts about the dogs. Funny, there always seems to be wanderers in the pack. I always wonder what they are thinking about on their journeys. I know if left to their own devices, they would be very sad to be lost and away from home.

  14. Wow! Toby and Bubba look GREAT!
    Congratulations on your award. Yours is one of my favorite blogs...

  15. How lovely! Do they have there own room or do you have to fit in around them? LOL! xxx

  16. Thanks for sharing those seven things, we really enjoyed the pictures, especially the last one :)

  17. Let us know about the swim therapy - it might work on Wilf's hip dysplasia.

  18. Kim,
    Congratulations on the award.Those pictures are what makes my day.
    Thanks again for sharing.
    You are truly a angel.

  19. Woof! Woof! GREAT ... LOVE it! Your Golden truly have such a wonderful place. I can see that they are happy. Very lucky Goldens. Would LOVE to spend time with them. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  20. Cute post ~ love the one about leaving their toys outside ~ too funny!

    Good luck with swim therapy ~ I hope it helps!

    Have a terrific Saturday Kim!

  22. What lovely 4 legged family members! It's wonderful that they get along so well for the most part. Clearly, you folks at Golden Pines have plenty of love to go around!!


  23. I'm excited to hear about the water therapy. We had a facility for canines open around here not too long ago. I hear it's a wonderful thing!

    Love seeing all the pups!



  24. Congrats on the award! Just love them beautiful smiles!

  25. Are they all tied together in the first pic ? And how did Dillon get there ? He's on the stripey rug at the side !!!

  26. Beautiful post! Thanks for tell us those great things about your crew! Hope the swim therapy works for Bubba!

  27. they are all so sweet!!! Look at that Patch-reminds me of a friend's dog who will stuff every toy and pinecone in his mouth just to keep everyone else from getting it.


Speak--I really enjoy your comments! Thanks for stopping by today!!
