Are you ever really alone?

My view from the bathtub:

When your family includes members with 4 legs, you're never truly alone!

The Good Old Summertime

What? Dogs aren't supposed to sit on tables? Who would have guessed!

Help - Mom needs a day off!

What's that you say - your mother has the whole summer off from school? Then why is she always running around and still hasn't gotten around to putting her feet up and opening up a good book? I guess the truth is that she just likes to stay busy. Taking a day off always sounds wonderful, but after a couple of hours she needs to find someplace to go or something to do. I can always help her out with that! Here's a cute picture of little Joanna out in the pen. That chewy tire is almost as big as she is!
Emma is crazy afraid of thunderstorms and fireworks. None of the rest of us are. She gets so nervous she doesn't know if she wants to be held or hide. So she does both. She is just so on edge she can't decide what would make her feel better. Mommy tried putting her in the crate and covering it up with blankets, but she tried to squeeze her way out between the wire on the crate.
Do any of you guys get scared like that? Is there anything that helps you feel better? Mom and Dad will try anything.

Here's another picture from our July 4th barbeque. We have a HUGE yard, but Mom and Dad squeezed us in one little area near the back door. I think it was because she wanted to stay close to our pen. This picture shows Mom showing Emma and I off to some of the guests. Emma is excited to see Frank, who she used to live with a couple of years ago. They were good pals and she sure remembered him!

Big news - we're getting a new chicken coop at the end of the week! Dad bought a shed from a lady who is moving and he and Mom are going to convert it for the chickens! Cool! They also bought a small outdoor wire kennel that they're going to attach to the shed so the chickens can go outside. Mom says they'll have to put wire over the top so the chickens won't get taken by hawks and so they won't plan any escapes!

Happy Tuesday!

Is it already July?

Hello everyone! Can't believe it's already July. We're so glad Mom is home with us this summer and we try to keep her busy. We've been spending lots more time outside in our pen. Emma and I can go out on our own, but Mom has to come with us when Joanna and Chrissy come out. Mom and Dad are too afraid that a hawk will swoop down and take one of them! They've seen hawks grab rabbits that are bigger than those two little girls are. We had a big July 4th party here and I overheard Mom and Dad talking about how good we were (especially me - apparently they were worried I'd get too wild?!?!) There were lots of family and friends here for us to visit with and we used our manners most of the time. Dad cooked us our own little hamburger like he always does (we love to see that grill come out!) Here's a couple of pictures that Mom's neice Samantha took that day. She also took the picture of the chickens - those white chickens are the little chicks from a month ago! They're full size now but haven't started laying eggs yet. Aren't they pretty?

Here's me in my "company's coming collar" that the dog trainer gave us. It has little plastic tips on the end of each piece of metal so it doesn't hurt my neck.

Here's Emma giving us one of her "cutie pie" looks.

Roscoe's Back!

Can't believe we've been gone so long! Mom said she was extremely busy and couldn't find time to blog - but we kept up with everyone else's blogs! Today is the last day of school - that's the place Mom goes to every day - and we're all so happy that Mom will be home with us a lot more for the next couple of months.
Here I am being cute! When I get sleepy I grab my favorite toy (by the mouth), wrap my paws around it and knead away until I fall asleep.
Here we all are in Mom and Dad's bed - we don't get to do this very often! Mom said she snapped this picture of me during the only 10 seconds I was still that morning.

And last but not least, here's a photo of me with my "I need a treat soooooooooooo badly!" look. Who could resist?
p.s. Clover, we're so glad you're back!

Visit from Coach

Yesterday, Mom's BFF Donna came to visit with one of her newest babies - Coach!
We were all SO EXCITED! Everyone wanted to smell him at once.
He smelled so sweet - like all little babies do!

Maybe when he gets bigger I can play ball with him!
Coach is only about 7 weeks old now. He's a chihuahua!
I think he likes me best!

Kisses! Wish he could stay with us forever...

Teenagers Already!

Mom's been so busy, I've really had to bug her to update our blog!

It's the last 2 months of school so there are lots of things to get done and reports to write and lesson plans to get caught up, whatever that means.

The chicks are adolescents now. They've lost their baby cuteness, been through their awkward stage and have entered their teens. Not quite ready to become egg-layers yet though. It will take a few months before that happens. For now, we're still waiting to see which are hens and which are roosters. I've smelled them lots and lots and I still can't tell.

They just look like they'd be fun to chase around! (Don't tell anyone, but I'm really a little scared of them.)

Hope everyone had a Happy Mothers' Day. We all made sure Mommy knew we loved her lots with tons of sloppy kisses!

Partypalooza 2009 here I come!

Does that meatloaf have my name on it Emmitt?
