Clint is going to build us a larger shed, 12 ft by 16ft. We went to Lowe's to check out supplies and and had the dogs with us. Sally stayed in the cab of the truck and Maggie got hooked onto her leash in the bed of the truck. We came back out to the truck just a few minutes later to find Maggie had jumped out of the truck, of course not on the side where the leash is long enough for her to touch the ground though. She had her back paws on the ground but had to stretch in order to get her front paws on the ground. She was giving herself a good neck stretch but it was so funny. She was quite hesitant to get back in the bed of the truck but at least she has now learned her lesson not to jump out.

There is an after picture of Sally and a picture of my trash can with all the fur I vacuumed up. It's enough to make a little Sally puppy. I don't think I'm going to be changing careers anytime soon. I'll stick with people and just loving my pets. Someone else can torture them next time.

View of the dinning room from the living room. The sellers sold all their appliances with the house. Our washer broke so we are using theirs, but now we have an extra dryer. I'll just give it away to anyone who wants it, but for now it is just extra space to put junk on. View of the kitchen from the dinning room. We fell in love with the flow of the house. It's not a big house but the way it is laid out makes it feel so much bigger.
Yes, I agreed for Clint to put the deer head up in our office. It's his grandpa's and it was just going to be put away in a garage. I got something out of it too though...Clint had to put his bike out in our shed. Maybe one of these days when I walk by the room the deer will quit freaking me out.
The guest bedroom, that actually had a bed in it now!!!!The guest bedroom has a bed cause we got a King bed! Come to find out after we had it a few days, it is really a California King. It's all good for me, it's so comfy and BIG!!! Now me and Clint and both the dogs all fit on the bed. Yes, next to the bed is Maggie's dog bed, but she hardly sleeps in it since she ripped up her heating pad.
I'll try to remember to take pictures of our master bathroom all painted and then hopefully get them posted before too long.

In February Clint and I bought our first house and we love having a place of our own. The dogs, aka "our babies", have a nice fenced yard to play in all day and we don't have to worry about them running off. We have Sally, our 2 yr old Maltese, and Maggie, our 9 month old Weimariner. They are spoiled rotten but at least we can admit that. They are both our dogs, but Sally is more my dog and Maggie is more Clint's dog. Spoiled all the same.
Clint and I are both enjoying our jobs. Clint works in the oil field as a pumper. He maintains the natural gas wells. I work as a Medical Assistant for a family practice doctor. Check out my work website. They are still working on it but if you click on meet our staff you can see my picture and a picture of me and the doctor I work for. I can honestly say I love my job. www.basinclinic.com
Since our babies are our dogs, I have to just brag about the new tricks they learn. Maggie learned how to open the back door. We have to be extra careful to make sure the door is locked otherwise we will find her running around the house. We've seen her put her paw right on the door knob a push down and push open the door. Smart puppy. Sally spends her days in our front window barking at anything the comes by. She loves to tease Maggie and get her to chase her and then run under the bed, chair, etc, anything that Maggie can't fit under so that Maggie gets upset. Maggie gets her fair share of revenge on Sally though. She will sit on her, roll over on her, put her paws around her and hold her down, and various other forms of torture that the younger/big sister can do.
Hope you all enjoy the update of our life that revolves around our dogs!
