New Buddies

This weekend our friends Anthony and Kristen came to spend the weekend in LA and brought their puppy Marley. Needless to say Kuma had a blast.
Just look how tired he looks. He loves to play. Marley is about 1/3 Kuma's size, but she beat Kuma up! He slept all afternoon Sunday...

Play time!

Break time.

Can we come in and lay down?
I love letting Kuma play with other dogs. He is such a great dog, great personality and he is great with kids and other dogs. Doesn't like when people come to the door, but loves people.

I love this face...

We went to the dog beach today.

(and I love how tired he gets after the beach!!)

Apparently he likes to swim also. Literally launched himself
off the beach into deep waves and went for it. Now you know why
he was named after a black bear...

Tired on the way home...

My Birthday

For my birthday Dave surprised me with what I had really been wanting. A vegetable garden.

He didnt plant the vegetables, but he turned the west side of the house into my own private place to grow my flowers and veggies.

He literally designed an arbor and fence to keep the entire west side yard into my own secret garden. He built the whole thing while I was gone in Kansas City.

It was the best present he could have ever gotten me.

Here are some pictures.

Kuma, the bird dog. He's 115 pounds now!

My new arbor and fence. The middle is a gate.

My secret garden. You can't see them very well but I bought two climbing roses that will grow up and over the arbor.

You can kinda see the roses here.

8 tomato plants, 4 different kinds of peppers, cilantro, beets, basil, yellow squash and artichokes. Yum! I am so excited to make salsa from my own yard!
