Boy or boy...some great shots on here, Pyro, Macpudd, Stu!
peanut, about time to get your little spud isn't it? So Fonzie is getting a baby sister :D

Been very occupied w/company (including grandson) + ended up in ER one night w/grandson in tow due to really bad back pain from pulled muscle. Pretty much been miserable since mid June. I need to tone down the yard ninja stuff & act my age I guess.
We did make it to the beach on the boardwalk, & yes, Chloe drew tons of attention from passersby.
She's all snug as a bug in a rug snoozing in the ocean breeze. This doggy buggy is worth.every.penny. let me tell ya. Packed all her crap + mine & some of the grandson's. That fleece blankie has waterproof backing for those "off days", (oops). :oops: Went on the beach w/it as well. Had our campfire on the beach, weiny roast, smores, marshmallows. Gotta do it. :P

Miss Kitty started her annual 2 week vacation at the cottage on Friday night. Here she is chilling on her couch yesterday morning
after spending the night protecting the place from night time critters. From inside of course.


It seems Tiny Pic isn't working and my old pictures and Stu's have disappeared from the thread. :x

Hi Stu,
I tried Imgur first but had the same problem as Lee did with it not recognising the photo even after resizing.
So I used CRguy's recommendation imgbb.com. It's easy, but a word of caution - You need to create an account to upload any photos so if you are concerned at all about privacy be careful with the user name you choose. If you click on my picture it will take you directly to where it is hosted and my user name is visible. As is the title of the photo I created when I saved it on my device.

Cheers,

I've always used Imgur, occasionally I need to resize, but never anything from my I-phone. Not sure why that is.

Enjoying everyone's vacation pics (and Miss Chloe in her stroller). We haven't gone anywhere this summer, other than the pool in the backyard. That all will change next weekend when DH and I head to beautiful Omaha, NE for some fun in the sun and a visit with relatives.

Then the last weekend in August we'll travel to Gerogia to pick up Fonzie's new sister. It took a while ( and several hundreds of cute Frenchie pics) to talk DH into a new puppy. During the discussion phase we went through several trial names, and finally settled on Pittypat. And as it turns out, just like in Gone With the Wind, Pittypat is really from Atlanta.

We were expecting to get a pup from Fonzie's original breeder here in TX. Unfortunately the litter we were waiting for had only 1 girl, and Susan, the breeder kept her. However, Susan recommended a protege of hers in Atlanta, Erin. Erin has been breeding for a while, and is also a vet. Erin's girl Mabel had 4 babies and dubbed them the Fiesta Litter. Taco and Burrito are the boys. We'll get either Fajita or Chalupa.

Chalupa is sitting by her brother Burrito. He's a good eater, and a bit of a chunk.

A few shots of our neighbors down at the mini-ranch.


They have quite a few goats. Moon Pie is in the front of the shot, and you can also see Oreo.

Wouldn't really be a mini-ranch with out mini-donkeys.

Last but not least, Chuck, the longhorn, Fonzie's BFF.

Yes...I did a few nights ago. They work nicely; one light on either side of front wheel. They can be solid, flashing or blinking. I also have one on her leash or evening walks.

Peanut, those animal pics are a hoot! Fonzie & his moo friend makes me chuckle. :) That closeup of donkey's teeth = one rough night out :shock: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Mob...Takes me a bit to find this thread. Would you mind adding O/T (off topic) , O/T PICS or similar to the beginning of subject title? Otherwise, love, love the title.



Down by the river today...walk a little, ride a little. I get a kick out of Chloe while on a buggy ride. You can see her head moving left to right as she takes it all in.

FYI - There are a number of tinypic-hosted photos still displayed on this thread. Apparently, these photos will not be there forever. If there are any of these photos that you really want to save, it might be wise to save a copy and consider changing to one of the other available hosting services so that the images stay visible after the impending 2019 tinypic shutdown:
TinyPic is shutting down in 2019

TinyPic is shutting down its image hosting service because we can no longer support a free service that derives 100% of its revenue from ever declining on-site ad revenues.

While you may continue to host images from our site until further notice, we encourage you to consider selecting one of the premium plans offered by our sister site, Photobucket.

Thanks for using TinyPic for your hosting needs over the years. We apologize that we can no longer continue providing this service, but Photobucket is a great option going forward.
