Rosco Wednesday...A Lesson in Sharing...

As the Little White Mop Dog told you, about 3 weeks ago, our Dear Kitty Friend, Tigger came home after being missing for a year...

Yep, she just walked into the yard & said, "What's Up?"...

(For a minute we thought our friend, Tanner had joined us...)

But, anyway, Tigger has been making herself right at home...

Today, I found her eating my food...

Now, you might think...

Me, being the big, strong, scary looking canine that I am...

I might get really defensive about my food dish...

Well, you are wrong...
My lesson for the Mop Dog this week is Sharing...

Me & Tigger enjoyed MY dinner together...
As you know, I can be kind of destructive...
But I am, also, very kind...

Guess What...

My Mom came home a little late from work tonite...

She had these with her...

Can you see what it says???

I'm going to go to school...I start Sept 21 & I have 8 lessons...

I think it might be fun, but I don't understand why my Mom thinks I need it...

For some reason she thinks I'm spoiled & I don't know how to share...

I'll play along...I hear there are alot of treats involved...

Rosco Wednesday...

My Dad had to go back to the Army today...

He will be back in that Iraq place by Saturday, I think...

He'll come home for good in January...

I'm gonna miss this..I promised him I will take really good care of MY Mom while he is gone...

We're all a little sad, but we're very proud of him...

Rosco has Banned Me from the Back Yard...

I think we all know who really did the damage in the Back Yard...But, I wanted to show you my Front Yard, anyway...

A while ago, I told you how my Mom & Dad went out & bought some dirt...

Well, I never showed you what they made...See the flower boxes with the lights?

It looks really pretty after dark, too...
Here's a little closer view...
I don't come out here much...So I like to explore when I do...
My Mom has to keep me on the leash, cuz the road is really close...
The dogs that live near by leave me alot of pee mails...

This is their favorite mail box...
I can still run really fast, even on the leash...
So that's my Front Yard...It's not as much fun as the Back Yard...

But as long as I'm outside, I'm happy...

Rosco Wednesday...Yard Inspection...

Since my Dad has been home, I've been so busy playing Tug-O-War that I haven't had time to watch what the Little White Mop Dog
has been doing in the backyard...

I kind of tired my Dad out, & he's relaxing on the couch watching the Olympics, so I decided to inspect the backyard for Mop Dog Damage...
Looks like she knocked the chair right off the deck...

I know she's gonna blame it on me...

I told her not to play so rough with her big purple ball...

She's so spoiled, she knows Grandma will buy her a new one...

And, look at this...She brought my favorite pink ball out here...

I've been looking for that...

I'm just gonna have to do a better job of watching her...

An Amazing Story & the Bone Relay...

First, I have an Amazing Story for all of you...

I'm sure you have seen this picture on the right side of my Blog...

It used to say: In Memory of Tigger, My Very First Best Friend...

Well, Now look over there - It says: Tigger, the Miracle Cat...

This picture was taken this week...Do you see who is sitting on top of my favorite chair?
Yes...It's Tigger...During our Homecoming BBQ for John, we had another important Homecoming...Tigger walked into the back yard...

She's been gone for a year...She is 18 yrs old...

The last time we saw her she was laying on the deck in the sun...She came up missing & my Mom searched & searched & called her & called her, but she never came home...

After a while we just assumed that she had gone to the Rainbow Bridge...

We don't know what happened to her, but just have to assume that someone else in our neighborhool found her & just kept her in the house...She seems to have been well taken care of...She is very thin, but that was happening to her before she left, too...Some cats just lose weight when they get older...

Anyway...I have my Best Friend home with me again...She seems to remember everything...

Where she ate her dinner, where her box was, etc...

It's just amazing...

We are never letting her outside again...


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



Now...For the Bone Relay...

I carried the Bone by myself, but my Mom followed along just to "take pictures"...

I think she just wanted to make sure nothing happened to me on the way...

I met Scruffy at the New York State Line in Binghamton....

I ran up Rte 81 to the Thruway in Syracuse...
Look at all the Construction...For those of you who live in or have been to NY...

You know what I mean...

I met Asta at the George Washington Bridge & handed off the Bone...

(Abby's Mom here: There was a picture of the George Washington Bridge here, but somehow I lost it...I'm pretty computer challenged, you know...Also, sorry Abby isn't in any of the pictures, but I was so worried about traffic I kept missing her...That, & I really don't know how to add her to the picture)

Sorry the Bone Relay pictures are soo late...

We had a Homecoming BBQ for John...

As you know, Rosco's Dad is home on R&R Leave from Iraq...

Rosco thinks R&R means Rosco Rocks...

Here's MY Dad giving John some BBQ'ing Tips...
My Dad is acting as the Official Taste Tester...
Rosco is overseeing the operation in case there are any rejects...

I always clean up after dinner...Just looking for debris...
Rosco looks thirsty from all the Tug-O-War...
I'm just enjoying the celebration...& waiting for Hand Outs...If you know what I mean...
John & the boys checking out John's new Bike...
That's my sister, Chrissy (Rosco's Mom) talking to my Cousins, Jordan, Emmie, & Jenny...
Here's Jeff bringing JJ back from the backyard...Not sure what the emergency is, but if you look at Jeff's face, it may not smell very good...
This is John's Mom with a new little guy we just met that day...
His name is Gavin...He's John's Cousin's Son...
I love the kids...
I REALLY love the kids...
They are playing with my big purple ball...
I don't mind...They are having sooo much fun...
