This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Skippy is 3 years old today. He was born on Easter (or maybe late on the night before?). Easter was March 26 the year he was born, but we like to celebrate on Easter Sunday.

Happy Birthday Skippy!! He's 3 years old. What a dog. He's very special.

Skippy had a birthday Easter basket filled with plastic eggs, dog cookies, Merrick dehydrated lamb lung (!!!) and a Merrick Flossie (chewy dried beef tendon). He eat all but the eggs and then stretched out on the porch floor for a nap. Aahhh... the life of a dog....

The photos below show the nice new haircut he got on Friday at Laundromutt (by his favorite groomer, Alana).

Happy belated birthday to Skippy!!!!

I was at a shop over the weekend and the shopkeeper has been bringing her parti-colored Portugese water dog into work with her. She got her from a breeder in the DC area. Very sweet girl!
