Have I ever introduced you to my other family members???


This is Raina and Dodger.  (Dodger is totally sticking out his tongue!)


Dodger is badly in need of his Springtime haircut.  He will look like a completely different dog in a few days!


Raina is hubby’s hunting dog.  She is a German Shorthair pointer… and she loves to be outside chasing up birds.  And oddly enough, she also loves water! (something not normal for Shorthairs)


The kids adore the dogs, and I love that they have only ever known life with pets.

Well, dogs.

I am not a cat person.

Please dont tell any cat people that.

Anyway, I have been thinking lots about the dogs lately because of some new food that Purina has out.  We have always fed our dogs one brand and now I am thinking of changing!  I am really liking the new Selects stuff I saw on Tiff’s blog. (plus her dogs are adorable!)

Feel free to stop over and check out Tiff’s Blog, she is giving away a $100 Visa Giftcard from Blogher and Purina!

  1. Your dogs are wonderful. Our Max is a Lab/Retriever mix and strangely enough does not like the water! Great photos.

  2. Your pups are so adorable. I used to have a pointer too and was absolutely nuts about him. Great job capturing the lovely images. My dogs seem to always move or shift or do whatever it takes to look weird right as I’m pressing the button down on the camera!

  3. Love it Amanda! What a very handsome family you have indeed!!! Hi Guys! Have a wonderful weekend!;)

  4. cute!!
    Hey Amanda … will you go to face book and “like” my speaker page (if you want). It’s Darla Baerg – Christian speaker. I hope to come to MN sometime to speak!

  5. We have a shorthaired pointer that LOVES water also! I actually thought they were more of a water breed? Ours has webbed feet.

  6. How funny that your short hair wasn’t suppose to like water, but does. My husband has 3 English Pointers and 1 short hair and she loved the water (she passed away last summer, 14 yrs. old) she even hunted a litte that last winter season. She just wouldn’t give up. Love your blog.
