Zoolights!

This past week we went to Zoolights at the Phoenix Zoo. It was a fun time with friends and family - and the lights were so pretty! The only animals we saw were the zebras and otters. Oh well, the lights were cool. Here are some pics from the zoo!

Monkeys in the trees...

The only snow we want to see in AZ...Walking with the penguins...

Some sort of lit up animals...And of course it wouldn't be AZ without coyotes stalking a bunny!

Doggie Play Date

Today we had a Doggie Play Date in our backyard with our friend Lexi. She's a beautiful Golden Retriever whose Mommy works with me at the hospital. This picture was taken a little later in the 'date' when Chloe was starting to get brave. Lexi and Journey had a grand time chasing and playing with each other. Chloe stood on the outskirts for the most part. At one point she did get brave and jumped into their chasing game. It was so comical to see her trying to 'run with the big dogs.' They all got along great and we're looking forward to our next play date. Chloe and Journey were so tired out they both slept for most of the afternoon and didn't start playing together again until about 5:00 this evening! Thanks for coming to play, Lexi!

Journey


This is our new friend Journey. She's a Labradoodle and we're doggie sitting for her for the next week and a half. As you can see from the picture, she's quite a bit bigger than Chloe. She loves to play and we can't figure out if she thinks Chloe is a playmate or a toy. :) She's very gentle and loves to cuddle (we're hoping Chloe will learn that from her). This photo was taken the first night we got her, and it was a 'lucky' shot that I got them to both sit still at the same time!

As you can tell from this picture, Chloe isn't so keen on sharing her space. Journey, however, doesn't mind at all! We're having lots of fun with them, and they're starting to have fun together, too!
