BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages
(click to see movie trailer)

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

I'm Juz Sayin' & Blogiversary

Time flies when you're having fun!

Today is my 1 year blogiversary!
I had no idea what I was getting into when I started blogging. One year and 510 posts later, I guess you could say blogging has become an important part of my life. Some (Hubby, for one) might say blogging has become an obsession.
Blogging has given me, a retired teacher, a daily "lesson" to prepare; an excuse to use my brain at least once a day.
Blogging has encouraged me to capture life's moment through pictures. I carry my camera everywhere I go, much to every one's "chagrin".
I look at life differently.
I see more beauty in the ordinary, more special in the mundane.

Blogging has introduced me to a whole new world of cyber-friends, people like myself who love their pets, consider them a part of the family, and want to document and share their experiences.

Most importantly, blogging about my life with my dogs has given me an excuse (like I needed one) to spend quality time with them everyday. I feel closer to each of them as I share their lives on the blog.

Thank you, my blogging family, for making this past year a wonderful experience.


We're headed back to the lake today...If my auto-post doesn't work, we'll see y'all later in the week.

*While I was typing this, a mama (?) and baby bear crawled onto the deck. That's 3 bears on the deck in the past month. Poor, hungry bears.

Happy Trails,

Be careful with the bears! I love Buddy's pic in the pool! And the one of the three of them commenting on the blogiversary is fantastic! I have really enjoyed reading your blog. Seeing the pups and hearing about their adventures is a big part of my day. You have a gift; thank you for using it in such a wonderful way. Once a teacher...always a teacher. Have fun at the lake. I hope autopost works! I need my daily fix! SH

Congratulatons, Kit!! Your blog is so well done, I thought you have been doing it for several years! I am so glad to be a "follower" from almost the beginning!!

I have enjoyed reading your dog-blog for several moths now. It's always good for a sweet smile everyday! P.S. I'd rather have a bear on my porch than a skunk...had a baby skunk on my porch last night, and we live in the city! Where there's a baby....

I've noticed after taking so many pictures that I really do notice more beauty in the ordinary- sometimes something so simple can be inspiration for a beautiful photo. :)
