Someone is 35 already!!!


On March 17, 2006, a little bundle of joy was born to Mr. Coleman and Miss Pearl. A wee laddy with jet black hair, a black button nose and the blackest of eyes. Little did that tiny baby know, but he would soon be called Duhgall Piper.

Little did I know, but my husband was looking to find a scottie dog breeder who had pups. His plan was to buy me a scottie for Mother’s Day. He could not keep his intentions under his hat and told me that he could NOT find any pups for sale. I snatched up the newspaper and voila’! Pups for sale – and close by, too! YIPPIE!!

Our entire family went over to pick out our puppy…and do you know that Duhgall was wearing a camouflage collar? Yes! Jordan and Spen loved that and so the rest is history.

All gone....

Note: Duhgall LOVES beer, but he was just SNIFFIN’ the bottle – I swear!

So wise for your years to know NOT to get close to those horns!


Each day I am grateful to have you in our life. You make the walk of life a little lighter with the love that you give to all of us. Thank you for that, little buddy!


So for you, Doogie P., this post is allllllll about YOU, little man, and we wish you a VERY HAPPY 5th BIRTHDAY!!!!

Your Web site never fails to cheer me up, no matter the weather or my mood. And your doggie is such a sweetie, cocking his furry head in nearly every photo.

Best wishes to the little guy on his St. Paddy's Day birthday. And many more!

What a lovely post, I have to say that I love how you get the babies groomed. I'm very particular about Pippi and do enjoy your mix of a classic show cut with a modern functional do!!! We just "updated" Pippi's ear tuft style for summer.

Btw, I usually don't have the sound on my computer, because I have family all around and the t.v. is in the next room. However, tonight I put the headphones on, and I just wanted to tell you I love that sweet bagpipe music!!
