Hello. After many years of the daily grind, we’ve learned that living simple is better. Much better. This blog is a journey into simplicity. And cabins – we adore cabins. And don’t get us started on our love for the mountains. Sprinkle in a few (well, maybe more than a few) dogs, and you have the purpose of this blog. Oh, and food – let’s not forget about food. (Do we ever really forget about food? Even for one minute?) Real food, not from packages. So it’s simplicity. Cabins. Mountains. Dogs. And Food. These things are what this blog – and life – are all about. Join us on our journey and grab a sled and come along. And mittens. Don’t forget your mittens. Thanks for stopping by.
The Leader of the Pack
Rules with an iron paw. Loves to hug. I mean really loves to hug. She tries to rescue all the other dogs from haircuts, nail clippings, and baths. She will throw herself at me to allow them to get away. And crafty. Oh, so very crafty.
The Face that Launched it All
It's her face on the Pinterest account that drew a nice following. She thought she would be the star of the blog until Grayson arrived. Emerson didn't like Grayson's arrival one little bit. But Emmie doesn't like to wear costumes, so Grayson is now her co-star. And she really doesn't like the fact that Grayson looks just like her, only 20 pounds smaller. It's creepy.
There's a reason Paddington is pure white. He may be missing his wings, but otherwise, he's perfect. One meeting with Pads and you're hooked. Even non-dog people fall for him. Fair warning, though - do not touch his elephant. Ever. Sweetness goes out the window, and he will mow. you. down.
The Cutie Pie, But...
Bennett is the complete opposite of Paddington. Wherever Bennett is, there's a mess to clean up. He needs to be carried out in the morning to go potty – he will not go out unless he's carried. But every night, after a day of full destruction and mayhem, he curls up next to me to snuggle and give kisses. Then it's sweet dreams until the wee hours of the morning when I feel my underarms being licked. And thus begins a new day in my life with B.
The One Who Loves To Dress Up
(Nickname: Gracie Goose)
Actually, Grayson is the one that tolerates being dressed up. A little wisp of a thing at only 14 pounds, but she's the one who beats up the rest of the pups. This girl has some ninja moves! She sounds like a honeybee when playing. You really can't get much cuter than that.
(Nickname: None. Kings don't have nicknames)
Cousin to the above staff. Perfect-looking. Absolutely perfect. A mere ten pounds yet thinks he's king of the world. And the other planets. Loves food. Lives for food.
(Nickname: None. What name would be better for such a gentle soul?)
Cousin to the above staff. So named because she was rescued on Valentine's day - all six pounds of her. Sweet as a dove. Loves to wear outfits.
