Skating weekend

Pickles and her best friend, Sarah, are going skating this weekend. Rufus and Sarah’s dog, Cookie, have big plans to play tug-of-war games at the house with Dad while the girls are with Mom at the skating rink. Have a great weekend, everyone

Back to school

Pickles is back at school from her holiday break. She and Rufus had lots of fun, but now it’s time to get back to learning! The dynamic duo is having breakfast and will head to the bus stop with Mom soon. Bundle up, everyone; it’s chilly:)

Holiday update

Pickles had a wonderful Christmas. She has already learned to skate on her new ice skates, and Rufus got chew toys galore! Will they make it to watch the Ball drop on tv tonight? Stay tuned:)

Holiday time!

Pickles will soon be on holiday break, and Rufus will have his best friend around all day for two weeks! Both sets of grandparents are coming to visit on Friday, so there will be lots of fun and excitement in the Pickering household!

Sunday afternoon

The Pickering family has all of their holiday decorations in place, and Rufus hasn’t torn off any bows…yet. Mom and Pickles are holiday shopping today while Dad and Rufus take a Sunday afternoon nap.


The holidays are upon us! It’s Thanksgiving week and a short one in school for Pickles. Nana and Papa will arrive tomorrow, and Rufus knows that means special treats and lots of attention! From the Pickering family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!

Messy weather

Pickles’ school will have early release today due to the upcoming bad weather. It will be a weekend of inside fun for her and Rufus. Pickles is already looking forward to playing hide and seek with her best friend!
