Hunting Dogs

Scott regularly gets up at 2:30 in the morning to go sit in this thing (a hunting blind) in a corn field and wait for the geese to land.  He took the dogs with him this past weekend.

This is particularly funny because they are not duck/geese dogs. Brittanys are bird-dogs; pheasant, quail, etc (and there is the extent of my knowledge on the subject.)

So they don't actually do anything.  They just sit in the field and chew on things and sleep in the blind and whatnot.  But here they are, posing with their "kill".

Anyway, we have some relatives in town, so it'll be a sparse week of blogging.  Yesterday we went to the Denver Botanical Gardens and Beau Jo's Colorado Pizza (at the recommendation of Esther).  It was definitely tasty pizza, but the service was so-so.  I'm glad we tried it, as we are almost never in Denver.  

Then my alarm didn't go off this morning.  What a great way to start the week. 


  1. I thought my alarm this morning was a phone call at 5:30 (I've been sleeping through my alarm accidentally lately so someone suggested I make it my ringtone, that I would wake up easier for it). Well, I woke up alright panicked that something was wrong! Who calls at 5:30 AM!? Oh, right. Just my alarm. Sigh. The dogs look freaking hilarious and adorable with their "kill." Also, waking up at 2:30? Kill me.

  2. They look like happy pups being outside. :)

  3. Awww, they're so proud of it. Cute dogs! And oh man on the alarm. I hate that feeling!

  4. So I keep meaning to ask you, do you guys clean and dress the geese and actually eat them? Or what do you do with them?

  5. KRISTIN!!!!! Fort Carson HERE WE COME!!! (In November but we're hoping to bump it up to before the kids start school)

  6. Your alarm not going off is not cool. At all.

    LOL @ the dogs standing there like YEAH we did this.


Comments make my day!
