Serene Scenery Sunday

Woo, everypup and everycat and everygoat and everybody! It's me, Dave! Storm said I could do Serene Scenery Sunday this week. She also said to make it good, because we all could use some extra serenity this week. I thought that instead of showing you a bunch of garden pix or sky pix or stuff like that, I thought I'd show you photos of us that Mom took this week, looking mighty tranquil. Doesn't that sound good? OK, let's get to it. Girls first!

Here's Storm taking a nice walk through the garden:

My sister Stormy!

Doesn't she look happy?

In this one, she is checking the western flank, happy that all is well:


She's our leader and is always looking out for us and Ao4 HQs!

Here is a picture of Ammy, looking mighty serene:

The Yammer

Isn't she just the sweetest?!!? (Unless it's Supper-Dupper Time and she's singing the "Davy Stay Away From Stormy" song!) Here's another one:


I think
a certain Belgian Tervuren in Minne-snow-ta is going to like those two pix!

Here's the Zen-master himself, my kid brother, Zim:

The Zen of Zim
The Zen of Zim

You can FEEL his serenity there, can't you? And check this:

Ammy wanted me to point out our lovely blue sky there!

And last but not least, here I am, in a very serene moment:

Dave and Kong-on-a-Rope
Me! Davy! And my Kong-on-a-Rope!

Paws up to fellow Kong-on-a-Rope lovers,
Maddie and Golden Sammie!

And here I am, in total bliss:

Happy Dave
Me again - Dave

I hope some of our serenity rubs off on you and that you have a beautiful, peaceful, tranquil day!

    Love and hugs,

  20. Woooos! Lovely photos as usual, love the Zim serene ones, he looks so happy, I am not so sure that you, Dave look very serene for a husky, maybe for a lab?

  21. Hey Super Dave (and Ao4),
    Us Navy of Thirteen guys, a.k.a. The Bumpass Hounds and Kitties, want to know if the western flank is a kind of steak? Do you have steak growing in your garden. Our senior Admirals are Homer J. and Jubal. Butt Sophie is a Rear Admiral because she's always chewing on her rear butt. J.E.B. is a Vice Admiral because he has a lot of vices that get him into mischief. Both Jubal and J.E.B. are named after army guys, so is Jack (Jackson). We live in civil war country and the CSA guys had cooler names than the USA guys. Youse guys sure have a well manicured yard and garden; we could take care of that for y'all in no time flat. Let us know if you need reinforcements. Since most of us are GR we can always take the point. We enjoyed all of your serenity photos and thanks for pointing out the blue sky; here's your sign Dave.

    GORGEOUS Photos. I'm so glad you put them up for new readers like me to get to know you individually.

    Loki & Juno are jealous of your serene scenery sunday because they had to "work" this morning at jumping obstacles. Tho they'll be treated to their evening walk soon enough!

  23. We love the serenity.

    A serious question - where do you get your leashes? We like the connectors that you have as opposed to the "normal" connectors seen on most leashes. Our humans are worried that our old leashes are wearing out and can find the connectors they like. Any ideas?

  24. Beautiful pictures and luv the scenery, soo colorful! Thank u for sharing it with us!


  25. Love the great pics of you pups!!! Your mom's new camera is awesome!


  26. What beautiful pictures of all of you!
    Yes, we are definitely feeling more serene!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  27. Aww.. all of you look so serene and sweet.
