Karen @ away for the weekend said...

Oh - I love this! And that is a LOT of dog! But then, I love dogs, they must be a lot of fun and company.

Birdman said...

It's a dog's life for sure... well at least in your backyard. hahahaha

Judy said...

Wow, you do have a houseful :)

William Kendall said...

Such good names for them too. They are beautiful dogs.

Susan said...

They're beautiful dogs. Very good at posing for your pics :D) Love their cosy warm bedding too.

DJan said...

You can tell they are good natured dogs. I think you are all lucky to have each other. :-)

EG CameraGirl said...

How lucky you are to have four great friends ready to guard you and your property! (Nice they get along with each other too.)

georgettesullins said...

They've got the life! Good doggies.

I'm sure they all keep a watchful eye on the place!

Barb Brookbank said...

Anvilcloud said...

My goodness! What a pack!

They are all such sweeties. Looks like they have something scoped out there in the last pic!

Marcoantonio Arellano said...

such wonderful moments you've captured. love my canines. they bring such soothing, calming moments and remind us what is important. have a wonderful weekend and Easter (if you celebrate it) don'e eat too many eggs. they'll make you pigeon toed.

gracias mi amiga :-)

joeh said...

I now have an uncontrollable urge to give a Lab a good chest thump and ear scratch.

Julia said...

Hi Theresa, your place looks like a doggie haven. lots of space to roam at will. What a life...
Happy Easter.
Hugs,
JB

Dicky Bird said...

cute girls - like the dog house!

Primitive Stars said...

My oh my, that's the life, love your dogs, Happy Easter Francine.

Beth said...

The dogs are so sweet! Love the shots!

Willow said...

Aw ~ loved seeing the girls all together .
All gorgeous ~ Thelma is quite regal.
Is she an English setter ? Beautiful.

Phil Slade said...

Lovely dogs. I'll bet they keep unwelcome visitors unwelcomed.

The Queen Jester said...

I love that you named them Thelma and Louise and I was pretty sure that BB had to be the totally black one. BB King came to my mind, but perhaps this is BB Queen since she's a female?

Stephen Hayes said...

What a paradise for dogs.

Molly The Wally said...

Lovely to see BB, Baron, Thelma and Louise again. They look happy pups and not surprising with such a nice yard to hang out in. Have a super Saturday.
Best wishes Molly

Jo's World said...

Such pretty pups, living in what might be considered doggie paradise.
My Stella would consider it so!

Cheers and hugs,

Jo, Stella and Zkhat

Karen S. said...

Dear Mom, we girls sure have it made out here in God's country. Love, your girls. P.S. got any new bones for us to chew?

Blackberry Lane said...

I love all your pets! Sweet photos.

Pom Pom said...

They are all so nice and big! I can tell they are dearly cherished.
I like the color of your house.

Sylvia K said...

Ah, happy doggies!!

don said...

I really enjoyed seeing your dogs in your yard. It was interesting to see that the ducks and dogs don't seem to mind each other. Happy Easter.

S. J. Qualls said...

Does it get loud when strangers appear? Or are the trained really well? The kids look really contented and happy. Love the cute doghouse.

Sandra said...

you already know how much I love your pups...now i love your dog house and the lizard and frog on the side of it. i have never seen this before or maybe not noticed it...

Debbie said...

omgoodness, no need to worry about your saftey!!

thelma, quite the poser!!

Bob Bushell said...

My heart rings out to threesome.

karmnik54 said...

Lubię pieski:) Pozdrawiam:)

Roan said...

Lucky dogs! They havea great place to live. I would like to have more, but my house is too small! I want another black lab like Willie. Miss that boy!

Revrunner said...

Texan sentinels.

bailey-road.com said...

What a beautiful pack of dogs! They look so content to be on guard at RAR.

Lynda said...

I love the dogs. They look so content and happy. Do they ever chase the ducks for fun? Are there any animals they like to chase - - like squirrels?

Rajesh said...

Great shots. Nice black and white combination.

Tanya Breese said...

eileeninmd said...

Tex, your dogs seem happy and content. They are all beautiful..Of course you know I love the shot of Thelma with the whistling duck line up! Thank you for linking up to my critter party. Enjoy your weekend and Happy Easter!

Hilary said...

A precious pack of pups! All such beautiful sweeties. Have you ever painted their portraits? I'll bet you have. Photos of those would make a fine post also.. :) (You've probably already done that at some point and I've missed it). ;)

Made by KKann said...

Beautiful happy dogs - I love their names!

Robin Lamb said...

T, what beauties they all are! I could love them to pieces! What amazes me is that you have all these dogs and still you're swamped with birds!

Black Jack's Carol said...

I always love to see them. Thelma has such neat markings! All great names. It makes me feel good just thinking about their magnificent roaming space.

Marie said...

Your place is like dog heaven! How happy they must be there! Such a lovely place, and so peaceful! Love the designs on the little dog house. Too cute.

damian said...


To teraz już wiem że masz tak blisko ten stawik blisko domu :)

RedPat said...

Nothing will get past them!

Leovi said...

Cute dogs, I like a lot!

wayside wanderer said...

Content doggies! I like being reminded of your green house, too. That looks good. :)

Our photos said...

That's a well guarded yard

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Hold on now, I know this post is about the pups... but I spy that huge grill! Looks big enough for a pig roast:@)

Terry and Linda said...

They have the best of life...and so do you!

Carole M. said...

those girls have got it all ... so too the birdlife that abounds there

Stephanie said...

Beautiful looking dogs!

KB Bear said...

They are a beautiful foursome. Thelma looks fabulous with the Whistlers. Do your Lab types ever get used to having so many duck around? R would go insane!

Jeanne said...

Lovely pouches! I never thought about before but it's a wonder that they done run those ducks off.

SquirrelQueen said...

It looks like the gang at your house enjoys watching the ducks as much as we do. Or maybe they are just tired of chasing them. :)

Margie said...

What a crew!!! I love seeing them. Looks like they are enjoying spring, hanging out, looking cute.

DeniseinVA said...

What a great group of furry friends. They are very photogenic, and know how to strike a pose.

Paula said...

I think you're safe with those big beautiful guards.

Raggedy Creations said...

great looking bunch of pups.

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa;
I LOVE your girls shots; especially the one Thelma with a line-up of your Whistling Ducks on the fence behind(^_^)v
And I was REALLY amazed with the little house (for your girls to rest, maybe) with the critters designs on the wall:-)

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my American photographer friend, xoxo Miyako*

parker said...

My! Peter Cottontail wouldn't have a chance drooping by your place on Easter Morn!

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

Do you ever feel as if your life is defined by ducks and dogs? :)

Beth @ "E." Lizard Breath Speaks said...

i love how all are such sweet friends. i am glad they can hang out together. what cool chicks!! ( :

or dog?

SweetMarie said...

They are all so adorable! I would wrap my arms around each of them and Hug them!!! My dogs wish they had that much space.
I met a woman in the supermarket today and she loves dogs! She told me that a yellow lab had stolen her heart and after losing that companion she hasn't had a dog since, her heart is still aching. I started tearing up in the store while thinking about not having my Roxy and then I was thinking of you. Puppy dogs are so special. :) hugs, Marie

Kjell T. Evensen said...

These are my kind of friends. :-)

Linda said...

Nice looking dogs, and admirably calm!

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

It's a dogs life and a really good one!!

Christian Perrin said...

Very beautiful dogs!

I always think of Whistling Ducks as tropical birds so it's strange to see them on that cold looking pond with the bare trees in the background.

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

Stella would love that. She loves being outside in good weather.

Randy said...

They're waiting for the Easter Bunny!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Your four country canines are blessed for having such a human Mom!
Happy Easter to you and yours.
Hugs,
Mariette

Montanagirl said...

Nice clicks of your pups! The Fab Four.

Annette Mickelson said...

Very happy ranch dogs!

Paul said...

Good looking ranch hands you have hanging around. No way anyone is going to show up to the Run*A*Round Ranch unannounced!
