More pics of Kaiser

Well Denise is back from the cabin so here are some more pics of Kaiser. So here they are.

It did not take long for him to find his way up on the couch in the sunroom.

After a hard day of playing it is time for nap.

Her Highness Cleopatra keeping watch in the yard for illegal alien rabbits.

Cleo and Kaiser playing in the back yard. Cleo however is still not sure what to do with Kaiser.

Here Kaiser is giving us tree trimming suggestions. He is playing tug of war with a low branch on our Sargentina Crabapple tree in the front yard. I think he is trying to tell us that we need to trim the tree a little.

Aren't I handsome?

Our New Addition

We have a new addition to our family. We have brought a new puppy home. He is about 6 weeks old and oh so cute. His name is Kaiser, he is a German Shorthaired Pointer (GSP). Below are some pics.

I won't be able to hold him like this for long.

Kaiser and his brother and sisters.

He looks harmless, except for those sharp teeth and claws.

I had more pics but somehow I lost them somewhere in the computer.

Denise is at the cabin with the hounds. Kaisers first trip up there. The girls next door have been coming over everyday to play with Kaiser. By the time they leave he collapses and sleeps all night.

Our other GSP Cleo doesn't quite know what to do with this new puppy. We are confident that she will get used to him and they will be running together in no time.

We were talking about what to name him and I thought we should find a German name. Denise found a website that had German pet names. As we went down the list Kaiser stuck out because it means Caesar, which was our first GSP's name.

Anyway if I find the lost pics I will post them.

Take care

Pics from the cabin

We have been at the cabin the last three weekends which is very unusual for me. I only get up there about once a month. We have been spending time with Denise's family.
I thought I would share some pics we have taken at the cabin over the last three weekends.

Here is Uncle Don helping his grandson Nathan fish off our dock with a Sponge Bob fishing pole.

Nate caught quite a few nice blue gills. Nice Fish Nate!!!!

Denise and her Mom brought some garden art at a crafts fair in Houghton Lake.

This is Denise's skating bird.

This is Mom's garden monster.

These garden art statues are made from scrap metal parts. Nice way to recycle.

While visting at Uncle Don's Nate got tired of fishing, so Don took over the Sponge Bob pole and landed this nice bass. Don out fished us all with that pole. I think I need to put one in my arsenal.

A pic of a flying squirrel enjoying some sunflower seeds.

Cleo's two nemisis the black squirrel and the chipmunk. Nose prints all over the front window when these characters show up.

A male Pileated Woodpecker, one of my favorite birds visits the suet tree.

Denise's Red Headed Woodpecker visits us often.

I was out back of the cabin when I heard the call of the loon. I first I thought it was Denise, (get it loon, Denise) just kidding honey!! I love you!!! Anyway the Loon came into do some fishing.

A pic of the looking down our front shore line. Please notice the woodduck house I just put in. This is the one we won at Kirtland's Warbler festival.Add Image

A close up of the Wood Duck house. It it hard to see but that is very noisy Red Winged Blackbird on top of the house.

And finally the spring pic of the our piece of heaven framed by our favorite snag and trees.

Take care everyone.
