I guess that would be a Texas-sized dog treat. :)

Paula said...

That bone is ginormous!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Do you have a favorite? I promise not to tell...

Woody said...

They do love their LARGE bones, don't they? It's like an ice cream cone to us. Great photos.

Kathy said...

And how long will that bone last him?

AJ said...

That is a big bone...cute shoes!

Jules said...

Beautiful dog(s)!

Gone Country said...

Working on that bone is obviously hard work! That's a HUGE bone! Course, he's a pretty big boy and so handsome!

Love the pink shoes!

Texan said...

I am thinking Bubba doesn't have to worry about anyone else going for his bone LOL.

Allison said...

So what is that sweet little round outbuilding in the background? It is barn red and it is wood! Could it be another beautiful barn that we have yet to discover?

I can't belief anybody would put such fine dogs out for adoption. But in the end they got you which is great!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Your dogs are so healthy, thanks to your kindness of saving them from the shelter. My daughter gets all of her pets the same way. She even saved a horse or two over the years.
Of course, your babies Could be horses. I love the last photo. Bubba-Lou Boy looks like he sure is enjoying the cool tiles. What a sweetheart.

Very big and scary...especially if he got that bone on his own!

FUN FUN FUN!

Feral Female said...

Ah but I do love my labs! That was quite the chunk of bone there. =)

wayside wanderer said...

He has a beautiful coat. We used to have a lab and it was one of the sweetest and smartest dogs we ever had. Love the pink shoes! And the horsie weather vane, too!

ShySongbird said...

He has beautiful hair...and I suggest no one try to take his bone from him. :-) Thanks for the well wishes...I'm going to do my best to be a good patient.

Gail Dixon said...

Your dogs are so sweet! I've enjoyed seeing photos of them the last few days. That bone is bigger than my chihuahua! I've often wanted to buy a bone that size for my dogs to see how they would handle it.

joo said...

They are gorgeous, and I like your pink shoes:)

Roadside Rustic said...

Those are some big dogs. Very pretty and shiny coats too. They look very happy!

IanH said...

That is one nice dog! Hopefully, that is not a chicken bone. I understand that things are always bigger in Texas!

holdingmoments said...

So good to see such contented dogs. :-)

Bare bilder - Pictures only said...

Your dogs are really having a good life with you:)

Deb said...

now that is a bone fit for a KING...

Negerigeletschtempoit said...

First, I checked your pink shoes... they are cool.

Baron is gorgeous, and has such a shiny coat! Now, those bones the kids are enjoying are something else! Once we bought one for Misty and Cindy. Gordon took it to his shop and sawed it in half. It took them more than a week to "polish" it white again.

I love your babies, but more yet, I love the fact that they were all adopted.

Marissa ♥ said...

He is so shiny! Very handsome boy and Baron is probably one of the coolest dog names I've ever heard. LOL

I am in awe of that big bone. It would take my 3lb. chihuahua five years to chew that thing up. :)

barbara l. hale said...

Happy, happy dog! Love the pink shoes.

City Life to Ranching Wife said...

too cute! Beautiful dog! His coat is so shiny!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Now that is some serious "dog's life" enjoyment there! LOL! blessings ~ tanna

Rose said...

Looks like one dog ended up with two bones! My oldest daughter had a black lab at one time...he was big and beautiful!

bon bon said...

check out that shiny coat! what a charmer.

bailey-road.com said...

They are beautiful dogs! We once had a chocolate lab named Hershey (what else?). The guy we got her from had pretty much left her in his yard with very little attention. We got her when she was a year old and she didn't even know how to walk through a door. She turned into the greatest dog!

Debbie said...

those bones are massive....and they look "real"!!!

so wonderful that you have adopted all these pups and given them a truly wonderful life!!!

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

My Gawd! where are you getting all these huge bones? They are bigger then all the dang dogs ;)

Michaele said...

I really love the second to the last photo! And I think the first photo was enhances with the pink : )

pattisjarrett said...
