Please Stop Back Starting the New Year!

Hi everyone, Just been having some health issues lately and thought I'd let everyone know that I'm not quitting my blog. Just need a little more time. I will try to restart back up with my posting in the New Year. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas. In the meantime meet our newest member of the family. His name is Rufus.


I'll just leave you with a photo in the spirit of Christmas. A gingerbread house that some kids made for a contest. I took a few photos but here's one for you to enjoy.

Camera Critters - Dog Adoption

There are wonderful dogs at shelters just waiting to be adopted. And, alot of times there are purebreds for those who have to have one kind. Here's one of the huskies living at the shelter.

Quote from website: "Max is a 1 year old husky who was rescued from a bad situation. He loves other dogs and is good with children." There are three other huskies that are with Max's family at the shelter that would love to be adopted.

Don't just think purebred though, there are alot of mixed breds who would love you just as much. To see more of the dogs in Centre county waiting to be adopted go to Centre County Paws.

ABC Wed. "K" = Kildare's Irish Pub

Today is ABC Wed. with the letter "K". Sorry I haven't been on my blog lately but I've just been extremely busy. Hopefully, I'm getting back into it now.

This is inside the new restaurant in State College, about a 20 min. drive from Bellefonte. I loved these chairs, the food is excellent, and the homemade chips are to die for. If you've never been in one before there maybe one in your area if you look on this website at Kildare's Irish Pub.

ABC Wed. = Homesick

Since I didn't have any pictures to post today, this week for ABC Wed. I'm going to recommend an animal book called, "Dear Mrs. LaRue: Letters From Obedience School" by Mark Teague. Somehow I missed last weeks letter "G". But, moving on to the letter "H". My word for ABC Wed. and the letter "H" is "Homesick" This dog finds out just want it means to want to go "home". LOL. This is so cute and funny.

If you have children or grandchildren this is a wonderful children's story about a dog who gets sent to obedience school and keeps writing home to his master about everything that is going wrong. He whines about the food, the service, just about everything and wants to go home. This is such a wonderful book and the best children's book I've read in along time. I love the illustrations, along with the story line and it's funny. A great book! Check it out at your local library or you can find it at bookstores. And, no I don't have anything invested in this book, nor do I know the author. I just think this is a wonderful must have book.

Dogs Unchained

I posted this on my other blog and thought I'd post this here too for Camera Critters this week.

This woman is fighting to make it a law against chaining dogs up. She is chained at Harrisburg Capitol to Win Law for Abused Dogs. How would you like to be chained to a dog box all your life in all kinds of weather? Watch this video.

Last year I heard about a dog in our area who ended up with their paws frozen to the pavement and then died because someone left the poor dog out in the freezing cold. Let's help this lady get this law passed to Unchain the Dogs and give them all a better life.

Here's a quote that was sent to me in my email..."Dogs Need Change. Not Chains." is one of the taglines that drives Tamira Thayne's "Operation Fido Freedom." Thayne has made headlines by chaining herself to the PA State Capitol Building from 8:00 - 6:00 every day until SB 1435, a limiting chaining law, is passed in PA."

Even if you can't adopt a dog, please help pass this law by writing to your state Senator and urge others to contact their state Senator too and get this law passed to not chain dogs. Here's a website on Unchaining Dogs to find out more. Find out what you can do to help pass this law.

Also, check out this site Dogs Deserve Better


These photos on this website will shock you but you need to see them to help get this law passed. They are on the Dogs Deserve Better website or go directly to these photos Shocking photos of why dogs should be Unchained.

Sky Watch - Trees


There isn't much of the sky showing, but for some reason I still liked this photo. I can't even explain why I like it because there's nothing there but trees. I took this photo a few weeks ago at one of the parks that's only about 5 min.'s away in Bellefonte. Still haven't got out much because recovering from surgery.

Camera Critters - Quacky Visitors

We were just sitting out in the driveway minding our own business and we had some visitors stroll in.
Like any good host you like to ask your visitors if they'd like anything to eat or drink. Here's my grandson feeding our new visitors...

They ate...

Then they decided to check out a few chalk drawings...

Rounded the corner and then they were gone.

Sky Watch Friday - The Sun's Rays


Okay I know this is really pushing SkyWatch Friday with this photo. But, that being said it is the sun shinning down on this creek and I do have somewhat of an excuse for pushing the envelope (so to speak).

I just had gallbladder surgery on Wed. and got out of the hospital yesterday so since I'm sore today and can't get around much I haven't had time to go out and take a better photo of the sky.

I took this photo a few weeks ago at my son's place where they have a creek across the road. I thought it could be somewhat of a sky photo with the sun's rays shinning through.

Camera Critters - Furry Friends Water Station


I took this photo at the Arts & Crafts Festival in Boalsburg last week. They put out a tub of water for the dogs. I'm glad someone thought of this. Although, the dogs really needed in a cool place at home. It was so hot that day with the humidity extremely high that you sweated just sitting. So, when your out and about make sure your pet drinks everytime you get a drink. Make it a rule and you won't forget. Pets should be offered drinks more often since he/she will be alot hotter than you with the fur coat they have on.

ABC Wed. - "Z" = Zestful

Running neck and neck and tail to tail.

Okay I went online to find a "Z" word and came up with this one, Zestful for ABC Wed., which it says it means marked by spirited enjoyment. These two look like they are enjoying themselves and I get great enjoyment from this photo. It seems so peaceful here.

This photo was taken at Penns Cave while I was on the boat. We got to pass several birds and animals. Penns Cave is about a 20 min. drive from Bellefonte.

This ends this round of ABC Wed., but we will again start another round starting with "A" next week. Denise has a whole team this time to help visit everyone. The ABC Team (this includes me) thanks everyone who participated in this meme. Hope you can join all of us next round.

Sky Watch - Carwash


Here's my son at the Bellefonte car wash. I didn't take this photo, it was one of my son's photos that I think his girlfriend took. This was taken last year (2009). You can see the sun shinning through. That's basically the weather we're having this year right now except it has been so stinking hot (up in the nineties), and the humidity has been a killer the last several days.
