So this handsome little cowboy just so happens to be one of my favorite little guys in the world. He belongs to my good friend Ashley and her husband Kyle. I took these in June at the 4H horse show in town. Ashley was busy with her lesson kids (and I mean busy) and I just kind of followed Keegan around with the camera. He and his Uncle Landice both had on their shorts and cowboy boots. The cup he has stuck to his mouth...is no MORE!. He has been weaned from his "sippy", so these pics are nice reminders of that faithful cup he loved so much. He is 3 and never stops amazing us with his phrases and pronunciation of his words. He can also tell you just about where everyone he knows lives! It's a good day when I see little Keegan and to hear him call me Ashes, as he does everytime...well it makes my heart smile. I love you Keegs!

Allie was not a very happy camper..but even tho I couldn't get a smile out of her she still is so amazingly cute! Look closely at the picture of Allie on her daddys shoulders she's givn him a little present.

My friend told me I should put this pic of Vegas and I on here. Even though it is a cell phone picture, and you can't see her big head very well, my friend loves it and everytime I call her it pops up. Vegas loved to ride on anything at anytime, especially if I could make room for her right beside me. It was a real chore to get all 160 pounds of her in the back of my truck. My dad made me my own special trailer that tilts. She got to ride in this twice but loved every minute of it.
So my most dredded day came yesterday when I realized Vegas would not get up and come to me. She just lay in the yard staring at me with those big beautiful brown eyes. I knew right then I had to call the vet. Luckily a very dear woman that works there squeezed us into their already packed schedule. Since she couldn't walk.. my dad, Steve, and I had to put a sheet under her and pick her up that way. I rode with her over there, and I knew what was coming so I just talked to her. Let her know that she helped me through so many hard times in life, and that I loved her so much. At that point I realized that here I had just gotten through June and the 1 year anniversary of my cousin's death, and now July will be tough to get through as well. When Doug told me she'd never walk again...my heart sank to my stomach. I had to make that call and say goodbye. When we pulled into the farm I started looking around and realizing the place would never be the same. My male is just as distraught as me. He tried to get in with her when we burried her and to this second thats where he is laying. It's going to be hard to get through this because everywhere I look im reminded of her. Even tonight when I go to my mom and dads for supper I will look at the huge claw marks on her wood kitchen floor from when she was a puppy, and would come flying down from my bed to go potty and hit that wood floor and go flying into the dishwasher. I will smile. I might cry. But I will definately miss her. Thanks for listening and some of the pics above are from my cell phone but they are some of my favorites and I'd like to share them with you. Please keep me in your prayers I need them.

Ok so I walked into the living room and as I look around I notice something out of place..or I should say in place where I never had noticed b4. It was a pugs bottom sticking out from underneath a decorative ladder in my family room. So I grabbed my camera and went to investigate. She was trying to get her toy basketball which was stuck..lol so I got it for her and boy you would have thought a gave her a big bone. She gave it a good 15 minutes showing off then went to her bed in complete exhaustion. All in a nights work :)
