That bracelet is awesome! What a cool present to remind you of Norman.

Jan K says:
 What a lovely, thoughtful gift from Lydia….so many wonderful ways to remember Norman

It was so kind of Lydia to send you that bracelet…what a thoughtful surprise.

Yes indeed was it a thoughtful surprise, I look at it and instantly think of Norman and smile. 🙂

That would make a pretty background for a Christmas card!

You are right Jan, it would make a pretty background for a Christmas card. I have no idea what kind of bush/tree this was but it sure stood out with all the red berries on it.

Glory’s very own wood pile.

Glory is still moving the wood pile. That pile that she is sitting by I moved up onto the deck and now every time she goes outside she grabs one. The lawn if full again and yes the bigger the better!

LOL! What silly head-gear! I’ve never seen those before!

Are those reindeer antlers on your heads?

Those would be little turkey drumsticks on their heads that I got at Bartz’s party store. LOL

They’d probably rather be hunting turkeys than modeling headgear! Yes, I know dogs don’t hunt turkey (do they?)

Just a couple years ago the DNR passed a law that we can hunt turkeys with our dogs. We have taken them a couple of times but never got one but when we do get one we throw it for them and they do go get it and bring it back.

FitDog Friday

Today’s Slimdoggy FitDog Friday post is about Hill Training to help build hind leg muscles. Here is what SlimDoggy has to day for today: Last week, we discussed the importance of working your dog’s hind legs to keep their strength proportionate to their front legs and prevent atrophy as they age and introduced the Slimdoggy Squat exercise.  Another great exercise that you can do with your dog to build their hind leg strength is called hill repeats.
It just so happens that while we were hunting/exercising with Glory and Nellie yesterday we were doing Hill Training and didn’t even know it was going to be featured on today’s post. So here is Nellie doing Hill Training.

They were also working on squats as they had to squat under fallen trees.

They also took a moment to strengthen their neck muscles and stabilize their back legs when they stuck their head in a big hole.

This week we went hunting on Sunday for a couple of hours, then Wednesday we were invited on pheasant farm hunt so Gambler and Glory got to do some hunting to keep up with their FitDog exercise.

  1. Awesome follow-up, thanks for joining the hop. I thought I was doing good keeping up with my reading and I’m thankful you joined the hop, because I’m not as caught up as I thought I was. ;-(

    I love all the things you are doing to help keep Norman’s memory alive, I bet that helps a lot with the healing too.

  2. Thanks for answering my question about turkey hunting! I meant to ask my hubby if he knew, and then I forgot. Glad to know it wasn’t a stupid comment, which I thought it might be at first! 🙂
