We Had Our Family Meeting....

Me & Rosco finally got everyone together, & we searched the house...We looked under the couch & chair & in the car...

Here's what we found....

I got reacquainted with my little red cuz right away....Rosco took the pink ball...& I still won't let my Mom take a picture of me in the chair...

Now all we need to do is find the Sun in the Back Yard & things will be back to normal...

Oh, & I got a bath this weekend, too...

A Few Things Have Gone Missing Around Here Lately...

Including me from DWB for the last few days...Thru no fault of my own, I might add...

Here are some other things...

The sun from the Back Yard...

My Mom...She has been working alot this week...

Please excuse how I look...I'm having a bad hair day...

Me from the chair...I was actually IN the chair when Mom started taking the picture...

My Cuz's that Dewey sent me in the Goodie Exchange...I'm gonna have to get Mom to move the couch...
Me & Rosco called a Family Meeting to discuss the situation, but no one else showed up...

Rosco is waiting in case anyone remembers...I'm out looking for them...

I'll let you know the status of our missing things after the meeting...

This is what I did all weekend...

Mom & Dad were busy making some flower box or something in the front yard...So they didn't have time to take me squirrel hunting, or play ball with me, or help me blog, or anything...

Mom didn't even have time to take a new picture of me...This is from the last time she took me to the "Spa"...

Hmmmm....That makes me think...It's been awhile since my last "Spa" trip & she didn't give me a bath this weekend...Uh Oh...I think "Spa" weekend is coming up...


I'll let you know if I hear anything....

And, I'll catch up with everyone's Blog tonite...

A Walk in My Back Yard...

I love my Back Yard...So, I thought I would take you on a Tour...
I always walk by the pool first....
Then out to the trees that the squirrels climb up cuz they are scared of me...
Then I just stand there looking up...Daring them to come down...
Then I run around the lilac tree to hide on the squirrels so they will come back...
I wait...I'm very patient...
This is where I can't go...I can go up to the flower line, but no farther...
More places I can't go...I don't understand...It looks like fun...
My Mom said "Abby, Come"...So I'm running back to her...
The branch where the squirrels live...There was one there, but he is camera shy...
I found a towel they forgot to bring in from the Father's Day Cook Out...
Mom come get this...I'm sure you need to wash it...
Still another place I can't go...What's that all about????

So....That's a tour of my Back Yard...I love it...There are sooo many things to find, & smell, & chase...

It's my favorite place in the world...

We had a Father's Day Cook Out at our House...And, I got an Award from Lorenza...

These are the two Guests of Honor...My Dad - the one by the shed (he got sunburned today)...& the Little Human's Dad, Jeff...The little human, Maddie is trying to get her Dad to take her back in the pool...

I'm helping Mom clean up after we ate...

Notice the wood bench on the ground??? Guess who did that....
It was Rosco...He doesn't know how big he is...He's like a bull in a china shop...I think I got water in my ears...I don't know how, though...I didn't go swimming...
*************************************************************************************
Also....My Good Friend, Lorenza gave me this Award....


THANK YOU, LORENZA!!!


I try to Blog everyday, but I need my Mom's help & sometimes she says she has some other stuff to do...What could be more important than this?? I'm just gona have to learn how to type for myself...


I want to pass this Award to Simba, Girl Girl, Dewey Dewster, JB, & Deetz...

**************************************************************************************

Oh...I don't want to forget....

Rosco & our whole family want to Thank You All for the Prayers & Good Wishes for Rosco's Dad...

Hi, Rosco here....

The little white mop dog is out in the yard, so I thought I would take over her Blog for a minute & introduce myself...


She has told you a few things about me, but she has not told the whole story...


Me & my Mom came to live with my Grandma & Grandpa (Abby's Mom & Dad) & , of course, the little mop dog, for a while.


You see, my Dad is in the Army & he went to some place called Iraq...So we are gonna stay here 'til he comes home..I can't wait for him to get home, cuz my Mom isn't as good at Tug-O-War as my Dad is...That's my favorite game...I'm really good at it, too...


I'm big & I look kind of scary, but my Mom says I'm just a big puppy...I like everyone...The mop dog gets on my nerves sometimes, though...She's a little crazy if you ask me, but she is OK, I guess...She gets really mad at me when I get near Grandma...The mop dog is insecure...What can I say...


Don't tell anyone, but I actually kind of like the mop dog...Big, strong, tough pups like me are not supposed to like little whiny, hoppity, mop dogs...But I can't help it...She is kind of cute...But still a HUGE pain in the butt most of the time...


I do love the fact that I control the dog toy distribution in the house...It's kind of like...If Rosco wants the squeaky toy - Rosco gets the squeaky toy...The mop dog has to go find another one...That's how it should work & that's how it does work as far as I am concerned...Now & then the humans over rule me...Something about being "fair"...


But anyway...The little white mop dog is about to come back in the house, so I'll let her think she has control over the Blog World...I'll stop by again, soon...


Oh...And Abby's Mom says Thanks for all the Birthday Wishes...


Rosco....

It's Here...It's Here...My Goodie Exchange Package Is Here!!!

Thank You....Thank You...Dewey Dewster...

My Goodie Exchange Package came today...The mailman put it by the door this morning & I had to wait ALL day for Mom to come home to see what was in there...

Can I open it NOW Mom???


I can't wait any longer to see what's in here....I'm going in...

Look at all this stuff...I'm gonna LOVE it...

There's a Frog & an Elephant Stuffie...A green ball...A little red & a little orange ball - they will fit perfectly in my little mouth - the orange one even has LEGS, but it won't get away from me...There are some Denta Stix - which I LOVE, by the way....And, last, but certainly not least - Chicken & Liver Treats - Dewey, did you read my mind??? Chicken & Liver are my two favorite things in the world!!! Oh my, Dewey...Thank You Soooo Much!!!!

Mom, did you SEE all this stuff????

My Mom gave me one of the Denta Stix...Even before dinner...I couldn't wait...

Mom, make sure I really Thank Dewey ALOT....this stuff is GREAT...

After making quick work of the Denta Stix...About 2 minutes flat...I settled down to get aquatinted with my new Squeaky Frog...I think we are gonna become Great Friends...


Wow...This was definately worth waiting for...

My Mom has a couple videos that she is gonna try to get to work...She has alot of trouble with videos...If anyone has any tips, she would REALLY appreciate them...

Well, I'll talk later...I got alot of Squeaking & Chewing to do...

Thanks, again, Dewey...

I was Tagged...

My new friend, George tagged me for this game:



The rules are that you have to list 7 ways that you are useful, so here goes...



1) I keep the squirrels out of the garden...

2) I make sure Cousin Rosco stays away from my Mom so he doesn't bother her....Everyone says I'm "jealous"...But I'm just protecting my Mom...

3) I keep my Dad's feet warm when he is watching golf on TV....

4) I lay in the warm clothes from the dryer to keep them nice & warm until my Mom finishes folding them...This cuts down on the wrinkle factor...

5) I sit in my Look Out Spot in the window when no one is home to make sure the house is safe and that I beat Cousin Rosco to the door when my humans come home...

6) I make sure my Mom takes a couple walks a day...How fast she walks is determined by whether or not I see a squirrel by the tree in the back...

7) I always make my Mom smile...No matter what her day has been like...She walks in the house & takes one look at my adorable face & she just melts...



I'm gonna tag anyone who wants to do this...Have fun...

Squirrel Hunting...

I went Squirrel Hunting today...It's my favorite thing to do...


Heading out to the field...

Picking up the scent...

He went thru here...I just know it....

He was even playing with my big purple ball...

That's it...He's toast...

He's up there....So I waited...Come on down, you chicken...

He didn't...He never does...He's scared of me....

So...I went back & relaxed on the deck...

This is not over, Mr Squirrel....

Oh....And the best thing I did today:

Me & My Mom mailed our Goodie Package to Hershey & Kaci for the International Goodie Exchange....

I hope they like it...

Hide & Seek with Cousin Rosco...

Rosco hasn't been to the "Spa" for awhile to get his nails done, so Mom put this big green thing on the chair so he doesn't rip it when he jumps up to make sure no one dares walk by the house...

So...I thought..."Let's play Hide & Seek" & I got under the big green thing...


Rosco can't find me....


I'm right here, Rosco...


He's asking my Mom to help him...


I finally came out...Well Mom told me to...She spoils all our fun...


Then me & Rosco went & "shared" the squeaky toys...
