Murphy

IMG_2454This was my sweet guardian angel Murphy; he actually was my inspiration for starting Luckipups. As he got on in life, he needed more care. I always felt honored to care for him; after all, he was there for me for his entire life…    18  wonderful years!!

Twice he rescued his sister from dogs that were trying to harm her and whenever he was with me, I felt safe.  I think of him often and feel so blessed, to have shared my life with him!

 

We call her Chubbers

We’ve had this awesome squirrel visiting us for longer than I can remember. We named her chubbers, because that is what she was for a period of time when she was pregnant. She had the biggest butt and it was just a riot. We can’t wait for her to have babies again. She brings us so much joy and we keep her well supplied with peanuts…she hears us shake the container and comes running. We actually have quite the menagerie now. We’ve had as many as 6 squirrels, 2 chipmunks, a couple of bunnies, blue jays, cardinals, titmouse and sparrows….all at the same time. We supply them with sunflower seeds and an assortment of other seeds so everyone has their fav! We call it our entertainment!! 🙂

We call him Junior

Our neighbor told us about this cute little guy that she watched growing up. Unfortunately, our neighbor just moved, but Junior is one smart little guy, he moved over….to our home!! He found our bird feeder and has made himself to home.

 

 

Little Blue

Lookie who we found in our backyard?? Is he just not the cutest little thing? Steve saw him last night in a tree and then…..this morning….. I saw something sticking out from under the hastas….a little blue and white butt! I guess he thought since he couldn’t see us, we couldn’t see him.
Well…… I didn’t see him until the ring leader of the insane clown posse (Zuzu) was already outside. As soon as she was done doing her business, I quietly ushered her inside and immediately ran to get Steve. I was so happy that when he showed up, little blue was able to fly up into a tree….he can only go so far, for so long, but after our photo session (he actually had jumped on to steve’s finger…awww) we then watched him fly higher and higher up into our trees. This was beyond cute!

Our New Puppy

Her name is Zuzu and she couldn’t have arrived at a better time! My job can become all encompassing and having her brought me back to a life!! A life filled with laughter and just a ton of heart melting reactions. I mean seriously…LOOK at that face. She was falling asleep and when she’s really pooped, her tongue starts to fall out of her mouth.
