Double Dog Day: Major and Kayla

Major is the 11-month-old border collie, and Kayla is the 4-month-old Cavalier King Charles spaniel. They make a ridiculous couple.

I’m sorry for being so flaky over the last couple weeks. Late posts, missing posts, etc. Part of it has to do with my hosting provider, who has overloaded the machine I’m hosted from… not enough to significantly effect the actual serving of my pages, but enough that my scheduled tasks often don’t run, which means posts don’t happen when I tell them to. Partly, though, it’s burnout on my part. Not blog burnout this time, but ‘everything in my life’ burnout. Trying to get too much done, and not getting anything done as a result. Ugh.

Well, I’ll get through it. The dogs (and cats and otters and sea lions) will help.

The two of them had a lot of fun together.

Eventually, though, Major had to go. Because that ball wasn’t going to chase itself.

Those ears. I could just play with one all day.

A little out of focus, but that face was too goofy not to post.

Was going for a nose shot, but … a little off.

I just met this pup a couple days ago. Still have some little scratches from the sharp little puppy-teeth. TOTALLY worth it.

    Great action shots! Sorry life is attacking at the moment. If it helps, this blog has often been the boost I needed to get through a difficult day. Thank you for all the wonderful pictures and fun scroll overs!!

    I met Kayla last week and she is an adorable 4 month Beaglier. She is actually half Beagle and half Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and came from a reputable breeder.
    I also have a dog of the same breed, Eddie, that I rescued from Flawdogs in Missouri. This rescue goes around the state and and rescues dogs that are rejected by the many puppy-mills in Missouri.

    Missouri does not have the laws/regulations that most states have in regards to puppy-mills, so it is easy for them to exist.

    Eddie also had a younger brother, Mack, that was dumped by the same breeder/puppy-mill that Eddie came from and rescued by Flawdogs. But we lost our 2 year old to kidney failure earlier this year and seeing Kayla only brought back great memories of my little guy which I miss dearly.

    I look forward to seeing Kayla many times more in our neighborhood!

    Thanks Adam.

      Really? She looks so much like a cavalier! Well, whatever she is, she’s a real cutie. I suspect I’ll be seeing more of her. Maybe next time I can get a good shot of her spotty puppybelly.
