Awesome Nephew Pics - Blog Authors Included

Two weeks since our last post?  That sounds about right.  Two posts in a month?  Sadly, spot on.  It's been a crazy month or two.  Between work (an unfortunate fact of life), Fall chores, gardening duties, multiple family visits, and a sudden onslaught of volunteerism (more details on this later, probably much later) - we've been negligent in our obligations to our millions of readers here at Deaf Dogs and Benevolent Gnomes.  Sorry. 
Here's a picture of Alycia, myself, and our two awesome nephews.  They came for a visit a few weeks back, and we had a kid-filled, hectic household for a while.  These two little dudes are sprouting like weeds and it took all of our energy and gumption just to try to keep up with them. 

We'll get back on track with pictures of all the Fall happenings, Doggie Halloween Costumes, canning, leaves, pumpkins, and all the wonders of the season here in North Dakota.  Until then, stay warm and enjoy Autumn!!

Shadowfax Performs Again as Pig-Dog

Shadowfax has performed again as the melodious pig-dog.  We've chronicled her pig sounds before (Is It a Pig or a Dog), but are always amused by her snorfling, snorting antics and thought we would share her encore performance. 
Her Luna Ball makes her nose and snout get all squished and she snorts like a pig. It's quite funny and she seems to enjoy snorting up a storm. And yes, she's a delicate lady.
