Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Mags and I took our mom and dad on a nice walk this morning. We got to go down Labby Road -- you know, where lots of our Labrador friends live - and Mom spotted some sunflowers at the end of the trail. She wanted us to pose in front of them, of course.
Mags faced Mom for a split second while I licked my lips in anticipation of a COOKIE, then ...
At least we were both smiling -- right?!? Mags says timing is everything.
I hope all of you had a great Labra Day weekend!
"Are any of the Labs watching, Ragnar?"
"Goldie's out ... and that really tall puppy who lives with Blondie."
|"Oh, c'mon, you two! Please?!? I have COOKIES!!!"|
"I'll smile, but -- oh, hey, Goldie! Hope you and your pack had a nice Labra Day weekend!"
"Did you say COOKIES?!??"
|"That was -- no, wait! Mags?!? I missed it!"|
"Sorry, Mom. Bad timing."

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. If our dad doesn't push his chair in after he's been at the table, Mags and I usually race to be the first one there before Dad sits down again.

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. We were going to share just one shot of us posing on our walk this morning, but Mom said we did SUCH a great job, and took so many, that I thought I'd share a bunch! Let's take a look!
These first two are up at the top of our first big hill, with a gorgeous sunrise in the background:
PS: There were cookies involved. Trust me.

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. I'm just having a little training session here in the living room with Ragnar. About what, you might wonder? Refrigerators! You see, we just had to replace ours. The one that just went kaput had the ice and water dispenser on the inside - basically because one of our great sisters (Ammy!) knew how to help herself. What a smart, smart girl! So I was filling Ragnar in on what I learned through the Ao4 chronicles ...
Due to supply chain issues, Mom and Dad chose the only fridge that would fit and that they wouldn't have to wait several months for. Here she is:
Yep. It just HAPPENS to have a very accessible ice and water dispenser. It's only a matter of time.
|"And that's how she did it, Raggi!"|
"So wait ... all she had to do ..."
|"This is going to be so fun!"|
"We'll have this figured out in no time!"

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. I don't know what all this talk was yesterday about "someone" being all jazzed up. Usually when Mom says that, she means me, but I'm thinking she MUST have meant Ragnar. I mean, look at how sweet I am!

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Over here.
Why? Well, as Mom likes to say, "Someone is a bit jazzed up." I think she might mean ...
|"Hi. I'm here in one of my auxiliary dens."|
I thought jazz was supposed to be sort of mellow. Maybe that's a different kind of jazz.

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Today, we left for our walk
bright and ea well, dark and early, so we could get a nice long one in. We walked up into where they're putting in a new development, which we haven't done for a while. Much to our mom's delight, the place was packed with sunflowers! We did some poses that made her happy, so we thought we'd share them with you.
What a gorgeous, serene morning! And maybe our mom's right - sunflowers make everyone smile!!!
|Me, Mags, and the sunflowers|
|Mags, me, and more sunflowers!|

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags, here with my bestest kid brother Ragnar. We just wanted to wish all of our dog friends a happy National Dog Day!

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. I figured out a way to help my mom sew even faster on the Pfaff!!!
For some odd reason, she didn't like my attempt to streamline things. Go figure.
|"OK, if I just wedge the pedal under here, it's on all the time! |
Mom doesn't even have to -- wait. Did she just unplug this baby?!?"

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. It was getting toasty on our walk this morning, so Mom and Dad planned for us to take a water break down at about the mid-way point. We were all set to drink when ...
Which just proves the old adage: "You can lead a Siberian to water, but you can't make him drink."
|"Hey! There's a guy firing up the Bobcat!"|
"Oh, cool! Let's stare!"
"Mags? Ragnar? Don't you want some water?!?"
Pretty sure how that goes. Or maybe horses are involved. Everything's better with horses! Yours sincerely,

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. We had a great walk this morning - finally got a good "over 5 miler" in. We were happy to pose for Mom when we took our break, but ...
I would have been happy to wear the shades home, but Mom said she needed them, too.
|"Smile, sweet puppies!!!"|
"How's this, Mom?"
"Yeah, how's t--wait. I'm all squinty!"
|"Here, Mags. Try my sunglasses."|
"Oh. You look cool, Mags."
"Yeah ... hang on. This is better."
|"OK, you guys! Now ... wait, where did those smiles go?!?"|
"We're doing our Tough Guy Look, Mom."

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Today, Mags and I have a few pix of some of the more serene moments from the week. Our first shot was on a route we haven't walked in a while - we get great views of the sunrises at the top of this hill:
We helped our mom do some watering in the backyard this week, which was very relaxing:
I'm not sure about her sometimes!
We're Working Breed pups; we're at our most serene when we're working!
|"Oooh, fog and the sunrise!"|
"I think we have the makings of another scorcher out here today; glad we're walking early!"
|"That bunny better not even THINK about it!"|
"Oh, bunny-schmunny, Ragnar! Live and let live!"
And of course, there is always our work in Mom's Studio:
|"Must ... hold up ... the shelving unit ..."|
"No one's getting through here!"

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. We took our mom and dad on a nice, long walk this morning, did a bunch of zoomies and Snooter Jousting, had lunch, did some more Snooter Jousting, and now we're going to do this for a bit:

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. There's a part of Hudson Trail we lovingly refer to as "Labby Road" -- you know, as opposed to Abbey Road? Anyway, you should be able to see why from this video!
To watch on YouTube, please click here.One of the Chocolate Labs who lives in the last house on the left was still in the house this morning, but I think you get the idea!
Oh. And ... truth be told, I'm rather partial to the super light-colored Labragirl who greeted us first. Tell me she doesn't look fun to chase around!!! Sköl!
Thursday, August 18, 2022
Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. On yesterday's post, our friends Millie and Walter wanted to know, "Was there a little snooter jousting going on there?". These next photos should answer your question ...

It was a dark and stormy
nigh morning ... OH! I mean greetings to all! It's me, Mags. So there we were this morning, caught in a storm on the Hudson Trail ...
When all of a sudden, Dad said, "Check out that dinosaur!" A dinosaur?!?! How scary is that?!? Being the brave warrior that I am, I leapt to our defense!
Mom and Dad kept pointing, but I just didn't see it. Ragnar looked for it, too.
We never did see what they were talking about. I guess it's true about the dinosaurs vanishing and all. Right?
|"I love the feel of the rain on my fur, Mags."|
"And it cooled down the pavement!"
|"Where? I don't see anything, Dad."|
|"Hey, dinosaur! C'mon out if you're brave enough to take on a Viking!"|

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. Despite the heat coming later in the day today, we had a great walk this morning. First we checked the park for cows, horses, sheeps, etc.
We made it back home before it got too unbearable out there - so it was a great, serene walk! Have a wonderful Sunday!
As you could almost see from the photo above, even though we left the house just after first light, it was already getting hot out there. Probably the most serene part of the walk for us was finding a shady spot and taking a water and snack break.
|"Go ahead, Raggi. You first."|
"Is she the sweetest big sister or what?!?"
|"Aw, shucks. I promised our Mama Bebe I'd look after you!"|
"Slurpity slurp slurp ..."
|"Thanks for bringing the water, Dad!"|
"And thanks for the cookies, Mom!"
Saturday, August 13, 2022
Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Some people admire Mom and Dad's garden areas and wonder how they're able to keep up with everything. The obvious answer is - they have help.
It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it!
|"Yeah? Don't you bunnies even THINK about it! Or I WILL stare at you."|
"Good boy, Ragnar!"

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Yesterday, Mags and I were having a meeting in the Studio, when ...
The Pfaff?!? I knew Mom would need my help with that! I raced right over and got into position!
|"So, I'll keep an eye on Dad's office; you help Mom, OK?"|
"Sounds good to me, Mags."
"Oooh, if you two are in a meeting over here, I'm going to set the Pfaff back up and see if I can fix the tension!"
|"Uhh ... Ragnar?!?"|
"You adjust whatever you need to, Mom. I'll drive."
I made it to that cubby hole JUST in time! Whew! Sköl! Ragnar

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. The humidity was so thick the other morning on our walk, you could see it!
Plus, Mom and Dad brought water for us. And cookies.
|"I've got that Jethro Tull song stuck in my head now."|
"At least it's a good song!"
