Backyard Fun with Miley and Howie!

Miley and Howie the Boston Terrier Puppies | www.kevinandamanda.com

Miley and Howie have not stopped bouncing around the house. I think they are just as excited about the move as we are! We’ve been unpacking like crazy around here, but this weekend we wanted to make sure these little monsters got lots of playtime in their new backyard before the time changed and we might not have much daylight left after Kevin gets home from work for awhile. And can I just say BOO to it getting dark so early?? I love it when it stays light until after 8 pm, and wish it would stay like that year round!

Hi! This is Miley and I love my new backyard!

He goes in for the catch…

Oops. He overshoots it just a bit! :)

Lip snarl.

Miley always keeps her eye on the ball.

We are testing out new balls for Howie because his favorite little soccer balls got discontinued! I’ve never seen a more distraught dog.

He seems to like this one pretty good though! :)

Love seeing this little excited face running towards me.

And this little pudgy toddle with his smooshy lip snarl.

Miley and Howie even met the new neighbors! They are two Dachshunds, a boy and a girl, just like Miley and Howie,  just a few years older. New friends in the neighborhood! :)

Look at this sweet little face.

I think they are going to have fun “talking” to each other through the fence, lol!

Howie can’t wait for summer when he can jump in the pool to cool off after a long game of fetch.

Golden hour.

We played until there was just no more light left. I still love seeing this every day.

Have a great Monday, friends! xoxo

There is nothing – NOTHING – I love more than seeing pictures of dogs having fun and I simply adore Miley and Howie! And I hope the doggies next door will be invited over to join in the fun, once everybody settles in. I wish you all many, many years of happiness in your lovely new home.

“Howie not so much. Sometimes he gets lost :)” I think his ball is going to need GPS so he can find it in that huge yard. Sunset, sweet sunset. By far, my FAVORITE time of day. Happy Monday to all!!!

Always love the pics of Miley & Howie. Rescued a Boston back in May. He is one ball of energy. He loves to destroy his toys…went thru tennis balls, golf balls and a small soccer ball, but nothing was a tough as dear sweet Jack. Finally, found an indestructbile ball at Bed, Bath & Beyond just for dogs. They come in two sizes. Jack has the one about the size of a tennis ball. It is a hard resin-like ball. But best of all when he pounces on it, there’s a blinking light in it. Next to his nylabone, this is his absolute favorite. Plus Mom likes it because he hasn’t destroyed it. Check this item out, it may become your dogs favorite also. P. S. Love the new house!

I have a boston terrier also who loves to romp and play after balls,frisbees, or anything that moves. He will be six next week and plays like a puppy. I moved from an apartment to house with large backyard just so that my little guy Charlie would have room to fetch. Please post more photos of your adorable Bostons. Your photos are excellent and capture the true playfulness of the breed. Anyone who is thinking about what kind of dog to have I vote for Bostons. They are great companion dogs who want to please their human friend in any way.

Your dog is seriously cute! :-) That tree is gorgeous with the red leaves!!

I have a question about the shelf with hooks and bench that you have pictures of in your last post from your previous home (in the foyer). I’m thinking about ordering that set and was wondering what you thought about the “sturdiness” of it.
Thanks so much! :)

Amanda November 5, 2012 at 2:33 pm

Thanks Heather! We have had ours for almost 6 years and it has held up great. It’s a beautiful piece of furniture! It definitely does not look or feel cheaply made. I would say ours is extremely sturdy! I as not afraid to hang anything from the hooks, I loaded up the baskets and had pictures frames and candles on top. I would just say make sure it is securely installed on studs and you should be good to go! Hope this helps! :)

Your Bostons are beautiful. There is no love like that from a Boston; I have a female. If one is willing to toss the ball my girl will fetch and fetch and fetch. Looks like yours will too.

These pictures are great!! I really want your camera. Do you mind if I ask what kind of camera you’re using? I’m sorry if there is already a post related to my question, but I just stumbled across you today while googling weightloss blogs. Your post from 2009 came up! Google never forgets!

How are your kitties adjusting to the new house? Where did Miley and Howie come from? Were they rescued or from a breeder? I’d love to get one so my Wheezie girl could have a brother!!!

Hi Amanda! I’ve read that Boston Terriers do not shed. Miley and Howie are so much fun to watch. Anyway is this true about the shedding?
