One Word Sunday – Us

Every week, Debbie from Travel With Intent hosts the One-Word-Sunday challenge.  This is my contribution to this week’s challenge — Threesome.  Click on the link to participate.

This is my first time participating in this particular challenge.  I had been looking at this photo recently as a possibility for another post, but it seems to fit this theme best.



Fluffy Girl

This is my response to the Ragtag Daily Prompt — Fluffy.

I promised myself I would cut back to one post a week.  The weather is warming up so I need to catch up on some of my art projects.  But I couldn’t resist this Ragtag Prompt as it is my dog’s nickname.  So without further ado, here is my favourite Fluffy.


Fluffy’s other name is Makea.  Makea means sweet in Finnish.  Fluffy is a Finnish Lapphund (Suomenlapinkoira).  The breed has its origins as a reindeer herder of the Sami people.

All My Trials – Makea Goes to Puppy School

WordPress Daily Prompt – Strategy

With the arrival of Summer, dog training classes have shut-down for two months.  There are some crazy people who will still train in 40ºC, but I’m not one of them.  So rather than reporting on our current progress/strategies, I thought I would share a little tale of my early training exploits with my beautiful Finnish Lapphund girl, Makea.  Makea is now five years old and one of three (very noisy) dogs in our household.
