Thursday Barks And Bytes~Spring In The Air


The co-hosts for Barks And Bytes are Linda from 2browndawgs and Jodi from Heart Like A Dog.
The Barks: 
Happy first day of spring! It sure doesn’t feel like spring here with rain and snow flurry’s. The grass is dead and I don’t even see any life coming from my flower beds. The only way I know it is spring here is the big mud puddles and the muddy paw prints on the floor. That is when I wish it was winter again…..NOT!
Here are my two spring like photo’s. This was from this weekend when we finally had nice weather and the water across the street was open so the dogs thought it was time to play in the water.

This past weekend we did a couple of pheasant hunts at SS. Saturday we put out 6 pheasants, 2 for each dog. Each one got their 2 pheasants and had a blast doing it. They were so happy to be out hunting again since they have had a long winter and haven’t done much the past 3 months.

The Bytes:
Sand Spring Chesapeakes got another award, it couldn’t come at a better time. The first day of Spring and hopefully The Sunshine award will be bringing some much needed sunshine our way. Hugh thanks goes out to Jenna from Love is being owned by a husky.
Jenna has entered Lexus in a Kurgo Facebook contest. Lexus is currently in first place, lets keep her there so click here to go vote for her.
Jenna received this award from two different bloggers, each one had different rules. I could choose from the two sets of rules as to which one I wanted to do along with passing this fabulous award onto 10 other bloggers.
Here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who gave it to you. Check!
Name ten things about myself .
And pass the award on to ten other blogs.
2. Smile and pass on the award.
I will do both of the rules. 🙂 one big smile, thank you Jenna.
10 things about myself:
1. At one time I owned 6 cats. 3 of my own and 3 I adopted from my mom after she passed.
2. I lived in a shed for 1.5 yrs until our house was built.
3. I owned horses at one time and would haul them out to Colorado once a year, pack my gear and ride them up the mountain and elk hunt.
4. I have one brother.
5. I have semen frozen from Norman if anyone ever wanted to use him for breeding.
6. I have a stick kitty tatto’ed on my foot for one of my cats, have a paw print from one of my cats, have my puppies and dog paw prints, a couple of Chinese symbols, a ankle wrap signifying the loss of my parents and head portraits of Norman and Nellie on my thigh.
7. I had laser surgery 16 years ago and now I have to wear glasses again if I want to see.
8. I have Sunday supper each Sunday with my brother and his family.
9. I love to pull little kids loose teeth out and pay them when I do.
10. I love music but can’t hold a tune to save my soul.
Now I pass the Sunshine award onto 10 blogs I follow that I enjoy reading. You can choose what rule you would like to do. Enjoy!
Stop on over and check out these 10 fabulous blogs.
Now on to my picture of MK for today.

  1. Aww!!!! You are SO sweet to mention Lexus’s contest!!!!! Thanks SO much! We really really appreciate that! Actually our votes have slowed down far to much, we are now in second and already down by 100 votes 😦 I am trying not to give up though as we were doing so good. So you chose a great time to share about it, much love to you.
    You picked 10 fabulous blogs to pass your new award onto! i love them all! And it was great getting to know you a little better as well! I had horses when i was younger, one of my most fav things in the world is to go riding!
    Have yourself a great day!
    ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!


  2. Great photos! I love that gleam of pride in the dogs’ eyes when they’re bringing the bird 🙂 Loved your 10 things and it figures you’d charge those poor little kids. lol Thanks so much for passing along the award to me!


  3. What wonderful photo’s even if your Spring still has snow 🙂 We hope it warms up and the grass get’s green for you..I loved reading the things about you, how did you manage living in a shed LOL xxoxxx

  4. I see brown grass and thawed ponds. It MUST be spring!

    Thank you for the award! I’m interested in why you’re wearing glasses again. Is it because the lasik is no longer effective? Or simply age and the need for readers?


  5. I agree for the mud puddles. Mark caught one yesterday, he got bogged fetlock-deep, what a mess :o) I voted for Lexus, good luck!
    Congratulations, to get some sunshine is great! Many thanks for nominating me :o) you are the tooth-fairy? cool! for the laser thingy: I planned to do it too, but I’m a coward. And I’m not sure if it will work, would you do it again or better not?


  6. So do you let the pheasants out, then shoot them and let the dogs retrieve them OR do you have frozen ones that you hide?

    I’m sure everyone enjoyed being out of the house and doing something that they loved. You can tell the dogs love this job.

    Thank you so much for the award and for joining the blog hop!!


  7. Woof-hoo! Look at those Chessies having such fun in the water! So glad things are starting to melt (???) by you. I love all the pheasant hunting photos but can I tell you my favorite…it is the one of Gambler walking with the pheasant (and his paw is up in front). He looks so proud of himself…he is walking tall. Congratulations on your award…it is well deserved!

  8. Congratulations on your Sunshine Award! You certainly brighten our days! I am so glad that you have tattoos! I am going to get another one on my wrist of a heart & dog paw with a 7 inside of the heart for Bentley. Still have to get hubby to design it. The photos of your dogs hunting never cease to amaze me.


  9. Now in those photos, it looked like a fun change from playing in the snow! Sheba would just love to get in that water.
    Congrats on your awards, and I love the interesting things you shared about yourself, especially your tattoos. I’ve always wanted to get one (a paw print) and have been too chicken!


  10. Thanks so much for joining the hop! Congrats on your award and thanks so much for passing it along. You know how quick I am about acknowledging them….lol. Love the hunting pictures. They are really fabulous. I bet the dogs loved it! MK is cute as always!


  11. Hi Y’all!

    Do y’all get “mud months” there? My Human never got over the first time she spent a winter in the north and the newspaper ran an article “what to do during the mud months”. She says she asked Papa if he knew what they were talkin’ about. He didn’t either, but she said they sure did find out!

    Y’all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog


  12. Hi Again Y’all!

    Got interrupted before I finished. Congratulations on the Sunshine Award! and thank you!

    Y’all come back now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog
