Merry Christmas to All

The-Butlands-Christmas-Card-2008
Every year we try to out do our Christmas picture from the year before and this one has to be the simplest one yet! With pictures already taken and a picture available depicting Paul’s new love of Rock Band we were set.

Corona, Russ and I don’t have much desire to play in the band but will do whatever is necessary to make Paul happy. I just hope he doesn’t want to go on the road any time soon as that I’m not prepared to do.

So from our Rock band to your band, we are wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years. This Dogo Argentino can’t wait to see what adventures 2009 hold for her!

Halloween Again, and This Time with a Guest


Charlie, our adopted Mini Schnauzer and Cairn Terrier, didn’t realize what he was getting into coming over during the Halloween weekend but loved every minute of it. It was very difficult to get only him in a lot of pictures as our photogenic Dogo was jealous of him getting the spot light.

It wasn’t all fun and games during our Halloween weekend of festivities, Charlie was in boot camp to learn a few tricks as well as to learn to settle down. We simply incorporated pictures, dress-up and attitude into his lessons and he took part with eagerness. This is one dog who could care less about wearing clothes.

We let our mature Dogo Argentino do some of the training for us by simmering the hyperness of the puppy and teaching him to go to bed. Russ did his part, as well, by teaching Charlie his boundaries and making sure he didn’t infiltrate his room.
All in all it was a pretty good weekend with trick or treaters, party crashers and frights for all to enjoy. :) Can’t wait to see what happens next Halloween.
