We have Grass!

We have been living so long with mud that mom can not believe it is finally here!

Here are some of the cool pictures...

Delivery of the Grass

Bella loves laying in grass!

These are my two skin nephews. They had a great time playing in the mud as you can see by Jack's mouth. This is Andrew and Jack.

This is me being a very good boy around the babies. I love babies and normally have to be told to not lick them so much but I was trying to get my toy back! I did wait very patiently for them to give it back and did not go take it from them. It is not nice to take stuff from babies.

Jack kept trying to crawl up to me and touch me. I let him a little but mostly just kept backing up. He did use my mouth to hold on to and pull up to a standing position once. I just let him and then gave him a big lick. He laughed and fell over. I love babies but I really just wanted my toy back. Mom went and got it for me after this because I was being so good.

The finished yard! It looks like a park it is so beautiful!

Mom is so happy to have a finished yard but now we have to go an help her water. Thanks for coming to look at our pictures! There will be lots more fun pictures to come!

Boxer love

p.s. Mom said to tell you that she and Andrew's mama were very close while I was playing with the babies. She knows I am a good boy around babies but it is always a good idea to have an adult near because I am very big and can hurt them without meaning to. In this case two adults, one for each baby. Please be careful around babies and children if you are a doggy so that we can help teach them to be nice to doggies and not be scared of us. Parents please teach your children to be nice to doggies and watch your children because not all doggies are nice and know to be careful. My good friend Honey is very good at this. Go and see her in action here...

Have you noticed my clipped ear?

Hi everyone it's Beau!

I thought I would come and tell everyone what my life has been like this first year. I am one year old now so this is a most important story. I was born to a feral mama cat that took care of me for eight long weeks. When I was still a kitten I lived on the streets and had to search for all my own food. One day someone put some wonderful smelling food out for me but it ended up being a trap! I was most scared but they were really nice to me. They fed me and gave me a bath and then let me take a long nap. When I woke up I had been neutered. They told me this was important so that I did not have any kittens of my own. I was fine with this because I am just a young boy cat and not ready for a family.

Anyhoo they nice people at KittyCo here in Dallas were the ones that neutered me. They have a most alarming way of telling which cats have been neutered and which have not. You see they need to be able to tell from a distance sometimes because some kitties will not let you get close to them. So they cut the tip off of our left ear. I know how horrible! But it is a great idea to them and it does work I suppose. He is my picture, you can see my left ear is missing the tip. Mom says this makes me look scrappy and she loves it, dad thinks it's weird. I really don't notice it at all now.


So after the ladies at KittyCo got to know me they liked me a lot and called the Lost Paws Rescue Group. A very nice lady named Kathy took me in to live with her. She named me Rowdy because I LOVE to PLAY!!! She started looking for just the perfect home for me.

Unfortunately mom lost her most important friend just before she adopted me. I hear about Andy all the time and how much mom misses her. She must have been a special kitty, here is her picture. Isn't she most beautiful? I wish I could have met her, even though mom says she would not have liked me because I am too playful. She liked things calm.


This is when mom came into the picture. She started looking for kitties because she needed to have a kitty in her home or she would just be sad about Andy everyday instead of remembering how much fun she was. One day she called my foster mama to ask about two kitties. They were meezer cats, or Siamese. MooGoo and Kashmere. Mom loved meezer cats but Kathy didn't think the meezer kitties would like Boxen and Bella. She did have two cats that she did think might like her dogs. Enter Rowdy and Waldo.

One day mom and dad came to visit Waldo and Me at Petsmart where we were staying. They came into the room and played and played with us through the bars. She and dad wanted to come and meet us. They left that night and Said they would see us that weekend but I had heard that a lot and didn't believe them. Guess what they came back! They took us home that weekend and let us have an upstairs room to ourselfs for a week. Then it was time to meet Boxen and Bella.

the introductions went well cause Boxen and Bella know how to act around kitties. They know we don't like to play rough or be boxed with huge Boxer paws. Unfortunately My foster brother Waldo never really liked it at mom's house. He was way too stressed out. So mom took him back to Kathy. I hope he has a new forever home and is as happy as I am.

Anyhoo that is my story. I am so glad to be here with mom and dad, and even Boxen and Bella. I really love this home!

The End, or the Beginning really

Here is the before...

Not quite from the same angle but blame mom she took the pictures.

Here is a better picture...

And if you look closely at the back of the yard you will see the big bobcat machine that moved all that dirt! oh and Boxen chasing his ball...


And here is the last picture for now...me posing on the most beautiful new dirt!
Aren't I beautiful!


Stay tuned...the sprinkler pipe goes in this weekend and next weekend...GRASS!

Boxer's out...

Why mom is so busy and not helping us blog...

Hi everyone! I am so happy to be able to show you these pictures today! We are in the middle of a very big yard project. Today I am going to show you some before pictures of what our yard looked like before and then show you other pictures over the next few days! Exciting huh!

These are some of the first pictures taken at our house.

This concrete patio was taken out and the bushes cut down. Mom didn't want to cut the bushes down but they got injured by one of the big machines and had to come out. The patio was just extra concrete and there is already enough of that back there as you will see in a minute.



This is the area around the pool. See there is already lots of concrete.


This is the side yard...

This is what the yard does when it rains even just a little bit. there is lots of firewood left from us cutting down 16 trees and lots of concrete left from us breaking up that patio.


This is what happened to the nice concrete patio area...mom sometimes says she wished she would have left it there...

yucky right! Wait till you see tomorrows pictures...
