Like Mother Like Son

With my sister visiting at Yesteryear Acres, her doodle Blossom- AKA Maverick's Mom, is also back home. It has been so funny to watch Blossom and Maverick's mannerisms! They are so similar!
Two Peas in a pod
Their love of hedgehogs...
The apple didn't fall from the tree
They always need a pillow
And they adore walks with their human Moms
as much as they love to be tucked in on the couch
Like Mother like Son.

We love our silly similar doodles!

Winter Hibernation

The full effects of Winter Hibernation has hit the Yesteryear Acres 
4-legged crew today.....
Let's just play ball in the house today
It looks like a good day for an afternoon Hallmark movie
or a long winter's nap 
Everyone deserves a cat nap  
or Doodle nap 
Go ahead and take your walk without me 
We can try again tomorrow

Cool Pictures

The Doggies were surprised by the quick transformation of our pond.  In a few days it went to a fun place to swim to a fun place to ice skate!
We didn't know we could walk on water! 
The ice is so clear you can see almost to the bottom!
The smoothest surface we have had in years
Do you like our cool pictures?
That was a good one Maverick!
Ready for an ICE time?

National Hug Day

I didn't even know there was a holiday called "National Hug Day" but evidently it is today! It started in 1986 as hugging your loved ones just makes the day a better day so why not make it a National Holiday?
We don't need a holiday to remind us to hug our furry best buddies because every day at Yesteryear Acres is hug your best friend day!
Ernie, did you know it is National Hug Day? 
SLURP! Is it National Kiss day too?
I like hugs!!!!

Hug your best buddy! 
All day long!

I Think I Need A Hat

Maple's Double Doodle Puppies were quite surprised with the sudden change in temperatures.  They didn't know it could be that cold outside!
Um excuse me...... 
What is this white stuff? 
You still want us to play? 
But first.... I think I need a hat 
OH! This one fits perfectly! 
Hey look - you have a little white flake on your head
Mmmm That is delicious! 
Now this is how you keep your paws warm!
Time to explore 
This snow stuff is fun 
And tasty!!!
I am glad we got to come outside to play 
I hope we get to do it again tomorrow 
Happy Monday!

Never too cold for walking

This afternoon I tried to use the "it is too cold to go outside for a walk" excuse.  My son quickly let me know that it is never too cold to go outside.  He also reminded me I didn't have my steps in for the day.  I then tried to say that Hickory would be too cold to go out.  Guess I was wrong.
I am appropriately attired for the winter hike 
Sharing a stick is even more fun in my snazzy new jacket! 
Come on buddy.  Let's lead the way 
Guess my son was right 
But maybe I was right too!!!!
Thank goodness for warm radiators and soft beds!

Fill them up please
