Hoppity Hop Bunny

 We let our bunnies run around the yard once in a while so that they  could do their exercise.  Although they like to nibble on my flowers but it's okay, they need to be out of their house.
We love watching them hop along,  it reminds the kids of the book that we  used to read "Hoppity hop Bunny."
 Whenever  we want them to go back to their house, we just let our Jack Russel  out and he takes care of the business.  The rabbits knows that when Champ is out, they are suppose to go back inside their house.

LEGS Exercise

Our dog, Bolt, sleeps with this position.  Most of the time, he barks at his sleep and start  moving his legs like he is doing some workout lol.
He always lay beside my computer table  so I would take pictures when he does it.  He always makes this weird noises when sleeping.
 Uh-oh, the flash woke him up and realized that he was being watched lol.
"What? You got this  on camera?."
"Great!  I look like a goof ball, ruff!"

A friend called me on the phone yesterday and asked me if I know a boarding kennel around the area. I told her that I don't really know one but it got me thinking to search for it so if we ever have to go on vacation, we will know where to leave our fur babies.  

Below is the type of dog food that  we buy for our Canine at home.  The bench and dog tray  were made  by my sister in law.
Thanks for commenting!

Dachshund Archibald

Aunt Peg brought her Dachshund or wiener dog, Archibald during Dad's birthday party.  She named their dog after her  late brother.
Archie is such  a social butterfly,  everybody likes this little guy.  When I look at him, I picture a jumbo hotdog or a huge log with feet .  He is such a cutie!
I'd love to have a dachshund dog, they are so cute!
Thanks for visiting.

Tomato Hornworm

I was picking the  tomatoes one day and saw this odd looking caterpillar.  I hate worms and can't stand them but I picked the tomato vine anyway so I can show it to my kids.  My husband researched it on the internet to see what are the white thing on it's back.  As it turned, they are wasp eggs.  This kind of caterpillar is called tomato Hornworm. To better  understand, there is a video below that you can watch.
The video is from youtube, he explains what kind of critter this is.
