Where many family gatherings take place....straw-bale cottage lies beyond the gates.

Looking out towards Tomales Bay.

Can barely make out the brown rolling hills beyond.

Mom's brother's rescue doggie, Dozer. He can open latch handle doors, but not twist knobs. A huge sweetheart, and also a trouble-maker....thus, paw print in the pumpkin pie below...yes, Dozer punced on the pie! Fortunately, it had foil covering it....and he didn't get the entire pie!

Back to photos the day before Thanksgiving...the light was low, and mom kept giving me peanut butter to hold position...then I had to wear a skarf! I didn't mind so much, as long as it didn't get in the way of my peanut butter!

San Pablo Bay was very calm this day.
On a little walk, still great light. Sideways again!

Below...out on a pre-turkey walk with mom and dad. Hills looking towards Tomales Bay.

Have a wonderful weekend pals!

  15. Hey Sierra,
    There was a dog just like you at puppy school yesterday. They have puppy school in the ring next to my agilities class and she was really cute.

    But then during playtime she started screaming! Yikes! Do all tollers make that sound? I thought the fire alarms were going off or something.


  16. Too bad you weren't closer Marley and Dozer could play..

  20. Re: Your Swiss Ball

    I would recommend you do the same thing I did with mine - deflate it and put it in the garage so you won't feel bad about not using it! :)

  21. Oh Miss Sierra, I apologize. I thought you were one of those tolling dogs, but now I can see that you do not have white feet and you are much too big. I know you would never scream.


  22. i just found your blog and must say what a gorgeous golden you are! I see too many "blonde newfoundlands" in goldens now days but love your little girl!

  23. Can't believe I missed this for so long!!! Heard the stories, but loved seeing the evidence hehee! What gorgeous photos of different places - wish we'd been along with you! And adore these wintery scenes - I wanted to grab them too, but decided they might be better for you guys heeheee!!! Bootiful! Happy Sunday...
    Hugs xo

  24. Hope you had a GReat Thanksgiving! Those are lovely pictures and the pie pawprint made us laugh out loud!

  25. Sierra Rose - Did you know that it's snowing on your blog?? It's very pretty. Your pictures are beautiful too!

  26. Oh, those are such beautiful photos! Looks like a very cozy and warm Thanksgiving. So glad you got a shot of the pawmpkin pie! :)

  27. Pawprints on the pie - oh my! Good thing for the foil.

    Beautiful images - and beautiful Mom.

  30. You are a gorgeous puppy, Sierra Rose. Your fur glows in the sunshine, especially with bays behind you. It looks like you had a wonderful weekend with people and dog pals. I love how your posts bring back memories of my time in your area for me.

  31. I'm so behind with all the blogs but I've enjoyed catching up with you. Not such good news about the nasty labrador, hopefully you've totally forgotten it now.

    Love the pawprint in the pie and also this snowy scene!

  32. I found you from the Life With Dogs website and had to click ya. Your signature said Snaggle-tooth kisses, so I had to see for myself! You are beautiful Sierra! Now if you want to see snaggle-tooth, take a look at my mug...
