Goodbye to Summer, Nukie's 8th,Tripawd Transport & New Nommers!

Harrooo dear readers!  Summer is winding down here on the high Wyoming desert. All the neighbor kiddiewooos have returned to school. Golden tips are already visible on the tippy-tops of the aspen trees. Soon the sun will be setting much sooner, and the breeze will blow stronger and cooler. The afternoon shadows are already cooler.

(I'm not complaining...)

Isis has no dog leg in her dog leg...makes walking not so easy precious.
Isis got her Duralactin shot yesterday. It really helps her :) It makes her much happier too! The fall aggravates her arthritis, poor girl.
Isis & Nukie telling jokes!
Of course Nukie's reaction to snow is yet to be seen. The kid is still really enjoying the last of summer- today is his 8 month birthday as well! Happy birthday little brofur!
The mighty hunter~
Nanuk has a real thing for grass hoppers. Actually he has a real thing for just about everything (dirty mouth? clean it up!)...A couple nights ago he came in about 10 & his snooter was swollen up to the size of a football:( #1 says probably a spider bite. Thank goodness for benadril. This little one is a lot of action...I should start a new blog & call it 'what nuknuk has chewed up'.

(I'm complaining)

Nukie polishing off the last of the grasshoppers,
Last weekend's transport.
Notice anything missing?
On another note we've converted to some tasty new nommers - Blue Buffalo. NukNuk gets fish & sweet potato and Isis & I eat the Longevity kind...#1 says he is going to have to convert to generic mac&cheese...whatever that means. Have a peaceful week furiends!!

I think we are looking forward to fall too. It hasn't tipped its head in yet, but the evenings are nicer than they were last week.

We keep an eye on your weather to prepare us for ours.

wooo yay to it cooling down, keep thinking of that white fluffy stuff falling from the skys soon.

Big husky hugs and Leonberger licks to beautiful Isis.

Nanuk reminds me of me when I was a kiddie, always up to mischief. Wooo and still love those grasshoppers now. Oh and I got a rush job to the vets by putting my nose somewhere I shouldnt have BOL.

Great to see the tripawd going to his furever home. High paws for the tripawds :)
