A sandy bottom pool!  How cool!

Still such a WilloughBUTT!

The Willoughby is growing up so fast.  He loves going on outings and is such a "prancer"

Big boy in his big boy collar!

Halloween is coming up so of course we have to start playing with costumes!!!!

Such a cute jail bird!

One of the new puppies in the Boulder club... she is such a fuzz ball!!!

Willoughby the Caterpillar!  "So humiliating!"

So Tired

A face only a mother can love!

Brother and Sister being very good at a funeral to a much loved Guide Dog Club member. 

"Quick!  Look cute and maybe we will get a kIbble."

"What?  I know you just ran into the post office to grab a book of stamps from the machine but  I got a runny nose and  needed some tissues"

Going up to bed one night Willoughby bolted and went to Matthew's room .   I guess he wanted to sleep on the fuzzy blankets instead of his kennel.

Pumpkin Patch

I took the boys to our favorite fall pumpkin patch yesterday.  We meet my friend Brianna there who brought her kids too.  All three boys had such a great time playing together in the corn maze, the pumpkins, sunflowers and looking at all the farm animals.

I took pictures of both boys as babies at this very spot... I can't believe how much they've grown!

couldn't help but take a picture of a sunflower

My friend Briana's son Will and Matthew were shocked  that a chicken came to visit them on the hay stack. 

They found CORN in the corn maze... imagine that. 

We all had a great time in the corn maze but never found the exit and managed to get out through the entrance. 

Oh poor ethan.... what are we gonna do about those ears?  I love them but I just hope that he loves them too. 

Rob and his new little girl Hanna. 

Getting smiles and them to both look at the same time is so hard. 

Ethan "holding down the fort" and guarding our pumpkins while I go and get the car. 

Growing so fast!

Not far behind his brother.

Oh Willoughby, what are we going to do with you?

Oh what silly things puppies do.... they are as silly as kids, if not more.

So he is sound asleep and his paw is literally poking up into the air.

Speaking of silly sleepers, The boys had been doing a really good job of sleeping in Matthew's bed together..... But last week one night I came up to go to bed and found them taking up most of my bed.  

"um guys, I really like this little kids sofa and all, but um....... It seems to be shrinking.... "

"I heard you say WILLOUGHBY COME and I know I am not suppose to be upstairs by myself, but um.... I can't figure out how to get to you...."

I asked Matthew to watch Willoughby while I took a shower and when I gout out this is what I found.  Matthew said he put him in his kennel so he couldn't get into any trouble. 

"Look at what a good boy I'm being.... I'm sleeping and I'm not on a tie down either..."

I heard Willoughby snoring so I new he was near by me sleeping but when I got up from doing work I couldn't find him.  I finally found him in the corner wedged between the blankets.  

These two boys just love each other. 

Ethan however did not really enjoy playing with Matthew in the Kennel.  He put himself in there but then couldn't figure out how to get out.   

"Do I really have to stay in my kennel while you guys go to the pumpkin patch???  Look at these sad eyes of such a tortured and unloved puppy.... You know you want to take me with you..."

I ran into the basement to get some legos for the boys, and was gone all of 45 seconds.  When I came back up WilloughBUTT had claimed on to the couch and settle right in.    I think he may have been enticed by the cookie crumbs that Matthew left there.   That's a good excuse anyways. 

Look how proud I am to be wearing by "big boy" collar at 16 weeks already. 

Rapids game

My friends Kit and Jeff have season's tickets to the Rapids - Denver's professional soccer team.  They took Matthew and I for a game last weekend.  Matthew had a blast!

They brought a scarf for Matthew to wear.  He wasn't sure what it was all about until he saw all the other fans with ones and how they used them.  

Jeff is teaching Matthew what to do with the scarf during the announcement of the starting players. 

How cute is that!!!!  These two boys were both very excited to be here. 

View from our seats. 

In the beginning he really put forth an effort tot try and understand the game. 

But then we got cotton candy and he pretty much focused on that for a good portion of the game. 

Intently watching the game all covered in Cotton Candy.  I think that is a sign that he enjoyed him self, I know I did!
