Teaching Duncan to swim

Or trying to.

We've attempted different methods, but he's not really taking to the life aquatic.

He's just fine watching from the shore, thank you very much.

Dogs mid-flight, what could be better?

We love setting our camera on rapid shot to capture pictures of the pups mid-flight. Here are some recent ones from a summer trip to the beach. Turtle always looks pretty composed and studly, but Duncan puts his whole heart into his running and his body is usually going in a million different directions.

A day at the races

It has been way too long since I've posted! April was a busy month with finals and graduation. Everyone is now unwinding and looking forward to a carefree summer.

Here are some photos from Tyler's half marathon last weekend in Pickney, Michigan. Turtle appointed himself "Medal Master" and picked out the best one for his dad.

Tyler's mom even joined our cheering section and had fun keeping Turtle and Duncan way from the other canine cheering squads.

Favorite things: The treat lady’s chairs

Turtle and Duncan spent a week at my parent's house while Tyler and I jetted off to Mexico for Spring Break. They have started affectionately referring to my mom as "the treat lady" and hope to return to her house very soon.

I'm sure they spent most of the week in their favorite chairs...

Turtle power

A couple weeks ago (while we were on vacation) Turtle tore his dew claw and had to make a trip to the emergency clinic.

They were very good to him and gave him a special bandage that matched his leash.

Duncan was very concerned about his brother (when he wasn't busy treating the bandage like a new toy).

Holiday recap

Happy New Year! Duncan and Turtle had a great holiday at grandma's house. Turtle got to relax by the fire on Christmas (Duncan was relegated to the floor, but that was fine by him).

And they got lot's of presents...

Including matching collars from DogLa!

Holiday bling from cousin Maggie

Turtle and Duncan had a holiday party last night, which meant they got to wear their new holiday bling from cousin Maggie.

Let the fashion show begin...

Here is Turtle doing his model pout (notice Tyler is wearing a matching flannel!).

Next up is Duncan looking sleepy fierce.

And finally we have Maggie, who looks like she should be in an Orvis catalog (the boys could learn a thing or two from her).

Best Post Turkey Poses

We all did a lot of lounging around this past week. Grandma had the best human post-turkey pose with the "leg-over-armchair" maneuver.

On the puppy side it was a toss up. Duncan went for the "pillow as taco" strategy. Well played, Duncan.

While Turtle did the old-school "single paw dangle." We'll let you be the judge.

First snuggle

Look who we caught snuggled up in bed...
