Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

Another Beauty from Zoolatry

As many of you know, my friends' mom (http://zoolatry.blogspot.com/) spends hours making art photographs (and has multiple other talents as well). Lately, she has honored me (and made me blush, which dogs aren't supposed to be able to do) by making a couple of beautiful portraits of me. I am grateful beyond words for this latest, gorgeous gift and am barking out ginormous woofs to you for putting me in such a "good light" heheh!!! Ann has also gifted me with a new header, which I will be using in a few weeks! THANK YOU SO MUCH ANN! If you haven't already checked out her work, go visit with Maggie and Zoey, the kitties of Zoolatry and Ann's studio!

We agree with Khyra - WOW! Absolutely beautiful. We have only recently come to know Ann and agree with you - very talented indeed.
She very kindly made our Header at xmas to match our blog design.
We got lots of compliments - it was just lovely.
We can't wait to see your new Header too!
Your blog is looking beautiful today.

Wowzers, Sammie - that is beautiful. Ann is so wonderful to so many of us - we love her work. Our blog would be pretty blah without her help. Maggie and Zoey are so cute and help her out a lot.

That is so beautiful! Does she do that as a business? Can people order those? She is very talented!
Of course she started with a most beautiful subject :)

PS I think we should have a blogging workshop on how to make new headers. The Duchess is a total failure at it, but don't tell her I told you, ok?
