ok so I don't post much any more but i still read the forums pretty often and decided i missed you guys and needed to get back in so heres and updat and tons of photos of the guys


So first off we've moved!!! we moved to Kincardine at the end of September and the boys are loving it:lovestruck: it's my boyfriends hometown and we used to visit frequently but now we have moved here. Its awesome Kincardine is located on lake huron so there is a beach a few blocks away from our house and lots of trails and nature and all sorts of fun things! We also are renting a house now (not an apartment anymore!!) the boys LOVE having a backyard to roam and play around in!

Our Back Yard

Logan had surgery on his one hip in the early summer and is recovering very well. He had a femoral head removal. He's in a lot less pain than he was and is acting like his crazy old self again!
In the summer we did alot of swimming to help him recover and rebuild the muscles in his leg. He's turned out to be quite the swimmer!!

Braxton has been his usual self he had a skin infection for a bit but is all better now. His confidence and charm surprises me all of the time he has come so far from when we adopted him 2 and a half years ago. Hes afraid of nothing now!

The summer and fall the boys spent a lot of time hiking and outside which has been enjoyable for the whole family!!


The cats are their usual self cause mischief and jumping on everything they can it took them a couple of weeks to adjust but they are loving the new house as well it gives everyone a little more space to themselves

yeah having the backyard is a dream come true we're hoping to stay here for awhile however we have little control over that. We are currently renting the house from my boyfriend's sister. This house is currently up for sale so we get to stay until it sells which we hope isnt for a long time!

Wow! Looks like a lovely place! And the furbabies are looking great :thumbs up Glad to hear the hip surgery went well, too. :goodvibes:

Are you buying lotto tickets? How great would it be to be able to buy the house yourselves! :cloud9:

we really should start buying lotto tickets!!! yeah the recovery logan is making is incredible especially for a dog his size and the type of surgery he had! hes such a tough cookie and has been truly inspirational through it all. Hes kept all of his charm and humor through the whole ordeal and was making us laugh again from the day he got home from the vet.

You picked a great place to live..My sister has lived there for 18 years..I love it there...Did you get a chance to go to the Old Boys/Girls reunion in Aug?.It was a blast.Never saw so many people there...I was there in Sept for my nephews Wedding...My other nephew and his fiance moved there from Kitchener in the summer..They bought a house that they have fixed up and are getting married in July.. Your going to love it there...The winters can get VERY nasty there...:eek:

LOL sooo true...And where else can you have the streets closed down and drink LEGALLY....;):p

My suggestion to you is have some close packed and kept in your car..You may at times have to stay where you are..Hwy 21 gets shut down alot...My sister is about 20 minutes from work,and many times she is not able to make it home,so she has to stay at work.This goes for the BF too..You may need back up for someone to take care of the furbabies if this happens. It gets bad there...Just be carefull...But I'm sure the furbabies will LOVE it.:D
