Caramel and Chocolate Adorableness!

Nutmeg's Double Doodle puppies will all be venturing to their new homes this weekend.  We will miss Nutmeg's Chocolate and Caramel Adorableness!
Looks like another beautiful day 

To play with Mr. Yesteryear Acres!!!! 
Where shall we go 
What shall we do? 
Looks like Mr. Yesteryear Acres has something for us! 
What is it? 
What does it taste like? 
Oh! An Orange squishy ball! 
We all want a turn 
Let me lick it 
WAIT!  I am not done! 
I think I will eat Mr. Yesteryear Acres hair until it is my turn! 
He loves when we do that! 
I will just wait patiently for my turn 
I got it!!!! 
I found a stick 
And it is all mine! 
Mr. Yesteryear Acres we love you 
And we love snuggle time 
Thanks for playing with us.  KISS! 
Happy Monday!

Pink Moon

Tonight's "Pink" moon rise was something not to be missed.  The moon was aglow with an orange tint and it looked so huge as it slowly rose through our woods.  By the time we made it back to the field, the moon was shining brightly.
Even the Doggies appreciated the bright full moon 
and admired it until darkness fell 
Our pond looks lovely in the pink moonlight 
Goodnight Moon over the pond!

No Blue Doodles Allowed

It is my favorite pond day! Blue Pond Day! Each spring we add a blue dye to our pond to keep the algae growth down and to deter herons from fishing.  The blue coloring makes it much more difficult for the herons to see the fish and keeps our fishies safe from their very skilled beaks.
The official color team 
Every job needs a Doodle Team Leader 
The first toss 
Mr. Yesteryear Acres has mad skills 
And it begins! 
Watching the dye disperse is the best part 
Mr. Yesteryear Acres has to toss the dye evenly around the pond 
He is so good - he never turns blue! 
I like this part the best 
Watching the patterns swirl is awesome 
Maverick agrees 
No Blue Doodles Allowed 
From these pictures, it certainly looks like Mr. Yesteryear Acres is doing all the work 
But he DOES have the best appreciation team! 
Just about done 
Good to the last drop 
Watching the colors swirl together 
Blue Perfection!

I think I will just wait for you

Nutmeg's Chocolate and Caramel Double Doodle puppies had a little fun playing in and out of the puppy play area.  Today's lesson was merely exposure to the play area with the gate open.
Alright Puppies....Let's see if you can go in and out of the play area 
That looks like a big challenge 
We have to climb over this mountain? 
How will we ever do it? 

Maybe you go head first? 
Or maybe it is feet first? 
I say let's go for it
Up and over!
Come on guys!  You can do it! 
They made it look so easy 
Here I go! 
I think my head is too big 
I think my butt is too big 
I think my belly is too big 
Mr. Yesteryear Acres, I think I will just wait for you!!!!
