March in like a Lion, out like a Lamb!

Our first and only big snow this year was on March 1. Maybe because we don't get that much snow here we love it when it snows and we can go out and play in it. Mom says it makes us frisky and we get the zoomies. Katy says it tastes pretty good too.

Today was a pretty and sunny day so we were out running in the yard some but spent the rest of the time looking out our window. This is our favorite place to look outside and bark at all who pass by, Schoolkids, cats, bunnies, the postman and dogs walking their people.
Sometimes it is so comfy we just fall asleep on the job. It may not look like it but we are working hard. BOL

Where's the Beef?

Just a lazy Monday here for us Cocker girls. We took a little nap with Mom then woke her up to warn her of the Dalmatian down the street that came walking by with his owner. Eat, sleep and beg that is mostly our job here, oh yes and kisses too, our Mom and Dad love our kisses.
Mom started on our second bucket of synovi G3 soft treats, they are to make our joints healthy and have Omega 3's and some good antioxidants. They are pretty stinky so we usually gobble them right up but Tizzy turned her nose up at them tonight. I think Tizzy would rather have that sirloin Beef roast again but alas that is all gone now till another shopping day.

wuff ya,

Layla, Tizzy and Katy

Sunbathing Beauties!

Today was a really beautiful sunny day so we went outside to our favorite sunbathing spot on the hot tub cover on the deck. Layla and I (Tizzy) really love the sun but Katy won't lay down out there and sleep like we do. She gets too hot with that dark coat but we buff girls can nap forever out there.

Katy and Layla stay but Tizzy took off because she heard the two Scotties Jay and Bee next door come outside. Tizzy loves to bark back at them and run up and down the fence. Silly girl!

Mom went shopping and bought us one of those clearance beef sirloin roasts and cooked it up just for us doggies. Yummy I think it must be Prime, we have been begging all day for more. Ahh what a great weekend, is it Friday yet??

We are Three Cocker Spaniels!

This is our first post to our blog. We are three spoiled Cocker Spaniels living in Southeastern Virginia named Layla, Tizzy and Katy Rose.

We used to be four but Molly Moo went to the rainbow bridge in the summer of 2007. We miss her but not her growlies that kept us wild puppies in our place. You can see Molly's webpage here.

I am Layla a light colored buff Cocker Spaniel born on December 16, 1999 when I was 8 weeks old my Mom and Dad drove to pick me up in New Jersey and take me back home to Virgina. As soon as I got there I got right to work trying to win over my big sister Molly but she wasn't having any of that!

So I got busy instead helping my Daddy gardening. Here I am helping to dig the hole for the roses. He said I was his good little helper. I even helped carry the hose to help him water the flowers.

Well since Molly would not play with me Mom and Dad set out to find a playmate for me when I was 6 months old. Tizzy was born June 28 1999 and was show girl for awhile so she did not come to live with us till she was one year old. Tizzy is a real sweetie and brave nothing spooks Tizzy, it must have been because she was at all those dog shows. Tizzy and I are best friends, two peas in a pod!

We are two grown up girls now at 9 years old. This is on vacation at the beach down in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We love to go there where we can go for walks on the beach and chase waves. The last time we were there my sister Molly escaped out the door to the motorhome to chase a real live duck even though she had a very sick liver at the time. Mom and Dad had a good laugh over that and a sweet memory now that Molly is gone.

On June 6, 2004 a litter of puppies were born in PA and Mommy got puppy fever again. August 2004 we all got in our motorhome and drove up to Pennsylvania to pick up Katy Rose an 8 week old Brown and Tan Cocker Spaniel puppy. Yes we just grew to four Cockers, they don't have enough laps as it is already so we stared at them in disbelief saying "Please tell us she is not staying!" Katy was a crazy puppy and Tizzy was first to be her friend and look after her. Katy adores Tizzy and helped her be accepted into the pack.

Katy Rose is now 4 years old and a soft sweet and sensitive girl although she was a mischievous puppy.

We'll be back!

Layla, Tizzy and Katy
