I like it when our dogs take US for a walk ! What a nice and easy life....good thing he reminds you to keep it that way. When you're happy, he's happy!
I don't know if I've ever noticed how sweet his little white tipped paws are!
Oh to have such a lush enclave!

What a way to start a beautiful Sunday morning. I did the same thing this morning, just took a walk around the back yard and enjoyed this COOL weather, 61 degrees here on Pinellas Gulf Coast. Hope it's cooler where you are as well. Though, I was following three "little" fur-babies, all going in different directions. Love your beautiful landscaping, what a great place to escape. Hope the rest of your day is just as beautiful!

what a fun tour guide! I have 2 little lounge lizards of my own and while Norman sunbathes, Newman take care of the security detail. Our favorite activity is letting out the front door and waiting them to run around and come in through the doggy door. Their time is 8 seconds. :)

I just love your tropical garden. Dogs are so much fun to watch. It's all about the smells. I'll bet your garden smells delicious.

Great post and I love the color of your house through the green!

Hey girl,
You yard is so beautiful and so is the yard manager .
I vote for the red vent above the stove. Maybe the shade is what bothers you. I also love your back splash behind your sink. do you have a wolf range with red knobs.

Jennifer said...

Blue Muse said...

I'm with Jennifer in the happy corner :)

So funny! Our black lab has the same morning regimen: Check the perimeter to make sure no other four legged creatures have infiltrated the perimeter during the night (the most important task), make sure everything is just as they left it the night before, reclaim any territory that was stolen during the night (you know what I mean here). Oh, the life of a dog!

Melissa said...

I have three of them and they are looking for a warmer place for the winter. They're fairly good at eating bugs and every now and then lay an egg where you can find it...

Renae Moore said...

Oh I love your 'little' puppy! Great morning stroll! My yard manager is ME! hehe
Enjoy the weekend!

Vix said...

Sure, I'll take the dog. The house/yard comes with, right?

Gorgeous shots/tour, as always. I just got a tropical hit and while I was away and observing I kept thinking, "I'd put Ms L's place up against any of these...."

how funny, i have two guardians already, but yours looks very trust worthy


What is the pay scale......big bowls of food that you eat on the floor??? I'll think about it.
