We had a couple of days of good rain in Southern California. It’s time to start or finish early gardening projects now and so while in the garden yesterday, Wiley was close by my side. I was photographing the awakening of my garden (see the images here on the Teenie Cakes journal later this eve…) and landscape when I looked down and found him watching me most intently with those beautiful honey-colored eyes.
I almost feel guilty to be enjoying the next days of temps in the 80’s while a winter freeze continues in much of our eastern states. However, we do pay dearly $$ for the sunshine tax…don’t we?
Two or three evenings ago, I joined Hubbs, Cody and Wiley in our family room where they were watching TV. Wiley gave me a warm and loving greeting and approached me with his tug-toy. As I sat on the couch, he jumped up to get closer to my face and SMACK!*#* He slammed into my chin. I don’t know what my chin might have done to his head, but for days after my chin was so sore. Was almost expecting it to bruise into black and blues!
Sweet Wiley in I See You! Wiley in the garden….
Today is my boy’s birthday. A day, that unbeknownst to us, a beautiful being, soul and life was born and that he would share his love and magical energy with us to become such a presence in our lives.
The first year without my Dockers on his birthday. It seems a lifetime ago already since I was able to pick him up and cradle him in arms, squeeze him, shower him with kisses and have him look at me with those bright, intelligent and knowing eyes.
Not forgotten. Terribly missed.

It’s easy for something like this to slip your mind, but this past holiday season was our puppy Wiley’s first holiday season!
A couple of years ago we changed how we display our Christmas tree. It’s now up off the floor set on a table. Because of the change of holiday decor, I’ve missed capturing images of the boys near the tree because it doesn’t sit on the floor now. I’m going to change that for this year!
Before taking the tree down on the 4th of January (yes, I wait that long…so sad to take holiday decor down!), I had the boys pose in front of the opened gifts and decor. I will admit, it is quite a challenge with Cody and Wiley when it comes to picture-taking. I’m going to have to really work with them so I can capture them more for CT.
Thought I’d get this holiday image up and posted on CT before January is over and with the intent of continuing in the the last several posted images of my corgi boys, Niki, Doc and Codes themed for holidays.
