Getting all my ducks in a row!

We're leaving for the log cabin in the next hour or so. (I've been calling Greg at work every 30 minutes to tell him to please hurry up. Scout is getting upset and Marvin is ready to leave without him. Ha!)




Tomorrow, I am meeting a blogger friend from The Retirement Chronicles for lunch in Mackinaw City. This will make the fifth blogger friend I've met in person so far. Watch out - you could be next!

This past weekend we went to the Detroit Kennel Dog Club Show and Scout's brother won 2nd place in the Bernese Mountain dog puppy division! His name is Jet. (And at our last play date, he kept making out with Scout and I had to tell him to take it easy!) Here's a photo of Jet. Isn't he a handsome boy?






It was fun to see so many Bernese Mountain Dogs in one place.





I wanted to take this boy home with me but his owner said no.




I fell in love with this Anatolian Shepherd and decided I want one of these too! Greg dragged me away from the breeder, begging them not to answer my questions and to just ignore me. (I got their business card - ha!)








And finally, doesn't this sign crack you up?

How fun (both the cabin and the dog show)! HB refuses to let me even attend a dog show. :)

Daisy said...

Hope you have fun at the cabin! Such gorgeous dogs. I can see why you would like them so much. I like the fancy pink collar on the Anatolian shepherd. HA! :D

Charli and me said...

All of the dogs are just beautiful! I love how you have all your ducks in a row :>) I hope you have a wonderful weekend ♥

The Retired One said...

Can't wait, Shelley! Thanks for the shout out on your blog! Love your handpainted ducks on your shelf too.
Next time we will come and see your lovely cabin in person and you can come up to the U.P. to our log home to visit, too. See you tomorrow!

I'll bet it's warmer up there at the cabin than it is here right now. We've had freezing cold wind here. It's supposed to warm up this weekend though. Those dogs are beautiful, but I still think Scout's the cutest!
Blessings,
Marcia

Star said...

They certainly are very splendid looking dogs. The ginger fur looks like it painted on just where it needs to go. I like the look of them because they look kind and yet spirited. They have gorgeous thick fur too. You are lucky to own such a fine dog and his brother is so splendid!
I like your ducks. My last post was about ducks too, coincidentally.
Blessings, Star

Cedar ... said...

Jet is certainly a handsome guy! I can see why he'd want to make out with Scout, she's so cute. Those ducks make a great window decoration.

Madison said...

How fun to see all of them!! Glad you had a great time! And I bet that Anatolian Shephard was GORGEOUS!

Darla said...

Have fun at the Cabin...is Greg going to plant flowers in those planters up there again this year? Yes, I remember them. Those dogs are gorgeous!

Just a little something from Judy said...

What fun to have lunch with a blogging friend. I'd love to be next.

I am surpruised that Greg takes you to dog shows. I can only imagine what surprise you will share next with us. Should Marvin and Scout get ready for another playmate? Did you enter Scout in this show?

Have a wonderful time at the cabin.

Jane In The Jungle said...

Lillie Mae Acres said...

YES, I love the GS dog sign. I have a GS dog and love the breed. All of these dogs are beautiful, I can see why you were wanting them. Enjoyed the post, and I hope you enjoy your stay at your beautiful cabin.

Rural Rambler said...

Dog shows are so much fun to watch. You see so many interesting breeds. Hope you are enjoying the cabin right now. We had to had down to the States for a week with my mom, but will be going home in a week. Sometimes I feel like I don't know where I live, but having as much time at the cabin as possible makes all the city living bearable. - Margy
