Fluffy Puppies Baby photos ~

wOOf...wOOf...everyone!  Happy Friday to one and all!

Human was going through some old photos and found a few cute ones of me when I was 6 weeks old.  I will be 6 years old in a few weeks.  Boy time sure does fly by.  I was so fluffy and cute back then, however I still think I am that same cute handsome fluffy pup.

Wet slobbery kisses from Eddie on Earth and wet ones from Lucy in Heaven.

Ashland Oregon is a dog friendly town and these water bowls are all over the sidewalks.

Handmade Wooden Urns for my Human Grandma & Grandpa

Custom handmade Oak wooden urns for our human's mom and  dad who passed away.  My human Grandma loved Betty Boop as that was her nickname and she loved beach combing and looking for agates at their summer home in Trinidad.  My human Grandpa played golf every day while he was able until he got sick.
