You Asked For It


I have gotten some emails requesting more pictures of Rusty.  Just remember we are very proud parents, so look out.  I also want to share with you that he weighs in at a whopping 7.2 lbs. and has to go back Wednesday for his booster shots.  We are hoping he has gained a few ounces since he was last weighed.  One thing for sure; he loves his Puppy Chow, and ever since we put him on it, he is eating really well, and glad to report his poopy is nice and firm now.  Some of you have suggested this may be due to shots and so forth, but I think it was the food they were giving him.  We will see Wednesday when he get more shots.  Here are some more pictures of our big boy.2010-12-20

The picture in bottom left corner shows his coloring.  He has black tips on his ears and tail.  The rest of him is a Rusty, orangey color.


He was really getting tired of sitting still, so he made a dash over to chew on my shoelaces; when I told him no, he decided to chew on a piece of bark instead.  One of my friends on face book says he will keep us busy, boy is that an understatement.  He keeps us hopping all day long.  Here is the last set of pictures for today.


He has not pooped in the house for a couple of days now, but we know there will be accidents, and we are prepared to handle them.  He is a good boy, and we know it will all take time.


We went over to the club-house last night and played cards.  Everyone was all abuzz about the announcements at the Christmas Party, from Doug, the owner.  They are going to put electric meters in, and knock the monthly rate back to $290.00 a month, but they haven’t told us what each KW hour will cost.  You use to also get $30.00 deducted for each month you stayed, so if you stay 2 months, your second month would be $340, instead of $370, the next would be $310.00 and so forth.  But, now the deduction monthly will be $20.00.  It will probably all work out to be about the same amount in the end.  I think their biggest concern is everyone using electric heaters, and you can’t blame them for that.  They are already one of the cheapest places we have ever stayed, and they are in it to make money, not lose money.

It is 68* out right now, but forecasted to reach 75* this afternoon.  It already feels hotter than it has since we arrived here.  Still no rain though.  Everything is so dry down here.  Makes you pray there won’t be any wildfires.

Did any of you catch the Colt’s game yesterday.  Collie sustained another injury.  We have had so many bad injuries this year.  It amazes me that we have been able to even be in the running for a wildcard position.  I know Manning is good, but I think he is only as good as the team behind him, or in this case, in front of him. They did win their game, and I think they may have to win the next two to be a wildcard team, not sure though.


Sorry to say Donnie’s team, the Broncos didn’t come out so well.

Want to welcome my newest follower, Jenny J.  I couldn’t find a site for you, so if you have one, please contact me and we will get it posted.  Thanks for coming along on this fantastic journey of ours.


We talked to the kids from Colorado yesterday, and Jay, in Steamboat Springs says it is supposed to snow all week there.  I forget how many feet of snow they already have, but it is a lot.  Jennifer, in Colorado Springs also called to thank us for their gifts.  We will miss being with the kids this Holiday season, but we will all be together in the spring and early summer. Going to get off here.  Donnie just brought in a plate of turkey Italian sausages for lunch and the smell is driving me and Rusty crazy.  Catch you later… :)

Look's like Rusty is learning fast, It seems like they grow so fast, When I think of how small Rigg's was when he came home and then 90lbs at a year, and he's just over a hundred lbs at full size now that he's two. Hope Rusty doesn't shoot up that big or you might need a bigger RV.Your guys will just love the antics they provide you with. Be safe out there.. Sam & Donna.

Rusty is so cute and looks to be full of energy which is great. He'll be a lot of fun over the next few months.

If the Colts win their next 2 games they will win their Division and not have to worry about being a wildcard. The road to the Superbowl is going through New England so that's a major roadblock for the Colts or anyone else for that matter!!

Very cute and with the personal hygiene problem improving, can only get cuter.

Rusty looks like a wonderful dog - so glad he has a good home. He's really very handsome...looks cuddly too.

I can only agree with all the other comments: He is a real cutie! It's good you guys are taking the time and trouble to train him now. He'll be a really good dog later. We always love them, but it sure is easier when they are housebroken and have good manners! :)

What a cute puppy!

I can't think of many other contexts in which it would be totally normal to write "He has not pooped in the house for a couple of days now."

7.2 lbs seems so small! I'd be afraid of stepping on him. :) Wouldn't you like to have his energy though?
