Three Dogs

Here you see, from left to right Cocoa, Bogie and Kahlil. Cocoa and Kahlil are my dogs and Bogie in the middle is my daughter and son-in-law's dog who was visiting for the day. I thought I'd practice sit-stay with three at a time. It actually went better than I thought it would.

In case you can't tell, Bogie and Kahlil are brothers. The are also son's of Kia who lives here

Cocoa's job is to be lovable, retrieve something to bring every guest who visits, eat all crumbs left on the floor and to find varmints like opposoms and mice. Cocoa enjoys watching people eat. including neighbors who are having cook-outs. She will ask to go out of she smells cooking outside Cocoa loves water and wishes she could jump into the bathtub when humans take a bath. Cocoa has an excellent nose. She is 13 years old

Kahlil's job is to be lovable, guard the humans, the house and the chickens, and announce and greet each guest. Kahlil enjoys watching neighborhood children playing and often asks to go outside when kids are playing in the next yard. He does not like landscapers entering the neighbor's yard. Kahlil is suspicious of water and worries when any human takes a bath. Kahlil has an excellent memory. He is 2 years old.

Cocoa and Kahlil are both great dogs and I've very happy to have them in my life. I also know Bogie is much appreciated by my daughter and son-in-law.

For more weekend dog blogging head over to Sweetnicks tonight.


  1. Huh! Interesting about Kahlil and water. All of his relatives love the water. They even go swimming in among the ice in fall and spring. Silly dogs.

    We, that is Holly, Will, Ben, Hope and I, were admiring your photo of these gorgeous lads and their lady friend. It is fun seeing how they are growing. If Kahlil is true to form with his relatives then he may well bulk up soon putting on about 20 lbs or more of muscle as he hits his prime. And then in another year it will be Bogie's turn. Bogie is very similar to Saturn who you know on our farm in terms of how large he is at various ages. Saturn is now about 90 lbs at four and a half years old. Saturn is the one who is colored similarly to Kahlil.

    Give the dogs a sniff for me.



  2. Cocoa must be half lab, half Weimaraner, no? She sure looks like our Mocha!

  3. Do you know that we have a 13 year old German Shorthaired Pointer as well. He is going well too. Maybe I will have to take a photo, then look similar.
