Sit 'n Stay in the Saddle with Brando and Bogart

We are very excited to introduce our newest blog.  Sit 'n Stay in the Saddle with Brando and Bogart will be about our travels in the west, and will include a soon to be new member of our family, a horse!  The pups have had a little experience with equine, so we've been reading up, and talking to animal handlers about the proper way to adapt them to our newest four legged family member.  This adventure has also been slow in the making to insure the safety of our children.  We want to make sure we have a perfect match all the way around.

We've also been trying to find things to do that we couldn't or hadn't done in Chicago or Albuquerque.  One of those things is to apply for a livestock brand.  Dont worry!  Nobody around here is getting branded, we hope to use it as a family logo.  There are so many wonderful brands.  They stand out proudly on the sides of ranch homes, on farm vehicles, or hang on handmade copper cut-outs at the entrance of a property.  Our brand is still in the approval stage.  Our daughter sketched a pup that looks like a Cavalier for our brand.  All fingers and paws crossed it will be approved, and as soon as it is, we'll post it here first!

Get along lil' doggies (and kitty friends too!) please join us at Sit 'n Stay in the Saddle with Brando and Bogart.

P.S.  We'd like to thank everyone for the kind words during our very awful relocation (Thank you Hawk BrownDog that's the perfect word!!!).  My Dogs Love Me even made me cry.  (Good tears!)Some of our friends have been asking what's been going on with the nightmare that won't go away, honestly, we've been trying to avoid the whole thing.  Since this relocation is not going away for a while, we'll share the horror story as our next post.  Thank you again, each and everyone of you means the world to us!


  1. Looking forward to all the adventures.

  2. Glad to hear we will be hearing all about it soon. By the way, I am glad they were good tears ^^ and not bad ones.

    I am surprised you guys came from Chicago. My sister and a good friend of mine lives there.

    You're getting a horse? That's just awesome. You guys should take a picture of Brando and Bogart in their new surroundings. A change in scenery would be good.

    Does that mean that you'll be transferring your blog?

    Anyway, it's nice hearing from you again.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  3. Looking forward to hearing more!

  4. We too are looking forward to reading more. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. Yes, we can't wait to hear more! Looking forward to your adventures at Sit 'n' Stay in the Saddle! Good luck on your livestock brand!

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Lucky you, getting a horse! I grew up on horseback, but don't live where it is convenient/affordable to have one now. I miss long summer days spent in the saddle.

  7. Woof! Woof! That is lovely. LOVE the name. OH Chi-town missing sooo much ... Can't wait to read your new adventures. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  8. Hi Y'all!

    So glad y'all are re-located. Sounds like your nightmare has ended! Certainly hope so!

    Thanks for visiting!

    We're looking forward to reading your new adventures! My Human grew up on a horse farm and then she and Papa had performance horses and retrievers until they decided to retire. You can see two of her favorite hooved friends if you check under the "more about me" tab on my blog.

    Y'all come back now!
