Walkin' the Hounds

Big Dawg walking the big dog... Tootsie.  Still unseasonably cold in Ioway.

And here's Peanut dragging along Koko.  

Beaner and I just returned from a walk-run mix at the Iowa Fieldhouse.  He put it about three miles.  Meanwhile, Sidetrack and Chalupa are in Des Moines and Ames for a Basketball, Soccer, Basketball tri-fecta. They lost their first basketball game 21 - 9 (Chalupa scored 1/4 of the team's points).  Then she joined her soccer team for an indoor loss 6 - 1.  She was heroic in the net stopping roughly 20 shots on goal...  but heroism or not, it was a merciless drubbing.  She is now on her way back to Des Moines for another AAU basketball match.

Rockin' and Soccerin'

Chalupa ROCKS out!  She's no Janice Joplin.

Big Dawg... gives his rock star scream - He's no Roger Dawltry

Peanut (Red) is hustling to take a pass.  She's no Mia Hamm.

Sledding 2009

After one run down the slope in our back yard, Peanut (left) and Big Dawg (right) head up for another run.

Peanut bails on the little man.

So it's the Big Dawg on his own.

"Watch out belowwww!"   The Big Dawg to make his final run!

Valentine's Day 2009

Tootsie is a great hound. She looks blue on Valentine's Day, but she's not.  Give her credit, her eyes are red.
Big Dawg.  Just being Big Dawg.  He had a great day.  

Best of all, the Peanut, the Birthday Girl, she had a great day.  She's thirteen, what else can she say?

Big Dawg (red) at BB practice early in the mornin.  Someday, he may play like his older sis?  Who knows?

Triple Overtime! Iowa 95, Penn State 87.

Chalupa and Buzz attended the Lady Hawkeye basketball game this afternoon, and we got our money's worth with a Triple overtime Iowa Victory.  
Here's Chalupa hanging out with Herky during one of many time outs.
