A Summer Weekend at the Lake with Sherman

We have really enjoyed spending time at the lake this summer. I don’t want to forget these wonderful summer days, so I thought I’d share a few pictures from a recent lake visit. Sherman loves to ride on the boat and his favorite spot is beside Mr. SP.  He loves to feel the cool breeze […]

Easy to Make Frozen Dog Treats (Copycat Frosty Paws)

If your dog is anything like our Sherman, then he or she loves treats.  Sherman enjoys a Frosty Paw almost every evening.  (Yes, he is spoiled rotten!  And we love spoiling him!) I don’t mind buying Frosty Paws for Sherman, the problem is that our local Kroger, where I almost always purchase my groceries, has […]

Sherman Update and Natural Balance Delectable Delights

It’s been a long while since I gave you a Sherman update.  If you are new here, Sherman is our 3 year old dog that we adopted from the Humane Society as a puppy. As you can see, Sherman is quite content living with us.   I did not like dogs until Sherman came into […]

Smith Mountain Lake House Update

It’s been over two months since I gave you an update on our Smith Mountain Lake house.  The house was completed at the end of November and we finally spent the night there this past weekend.  We got a fun surprise when we woke up on Sunday:  snow!   We have had a lot of […]

How to Make a Football Halloween Treat Bag

Sherman delivered doggie treats to some of his friends in the neighborhood last Saturday.  It was fun to take him out and about in his costume and also fun to give his friends treats.  I made a football Halloween treat bag to hold the treats that he delivered.  This was fun to make and coordinated […]

Sherman’s Summer

In case you’ve been wondering, Sherman is having a wonderful summer.  He has enjoyed having me home with him all day and as an extra bonus, Mr. SP has been home a lot this summer, too.  He’s had his usual long walks in the morning and evening and has lounged by the air conditioning vent […]

Sherman’s January Visit to the OBX

A few weekends ago we visited the OBX  (Outer Banks of North Carolina) for a weekend.  We got really lucky with the weather and had temperatures that were fairly mild.  Sherman adores the beach and took numerous walks there. Sherman can’t resist getting in the water.  I think he couldn’t figure out why the water […]

Sherman’s DNA Results

We recently received Sherman’s DNA results and were both surprised at the results.  We were sure that Sherman would be a German Shepard/Rottweiler mix but instead he is a Lab/German Shepard mix! His family tree shows a lot of mixed breed dogs, thus our Rottie prediction still could be true.     It makes perfect […]

What Breed is Sherman?

Since adopting Sherman in March, we have been very curious to know what breed Sherman is.  The Humane Society advertised Sherman as a Shepard mix puppy but we soon realized that he more closely resembles a Rottweiler.   Sheman was a little over two months when we got him. He is a high energy dog […]
