Freezing...

Hi...It's Sunday...The Day of Rest...

My Mom thinks it's The Day of the Bath...
After the Water Torture,

I tried to take a nap but I was too cold...

My Mom tried to tell me, if I let her dry me with
the towel, I wouldn't be so cold...

I keep telling her I DON'T like the towel....
Here's a little video to show you just how cold I was...

You should have a tissue handy...It's pretty sad...

Now, I'm not asking for Sympathy, but....


After watching the Shiver Video,

Mom came over & covered me up....
I'd say Thanks, Mom...But it's all her fault...

I thought I smelled just fine...

She said, "OK"...

Award...


I got this Great Award from


Dory says that this award must have been created by dogs.
The only rule is to name your top ten favorite blogs...

That is a tough Rule cuz ALL my
Blogging Friends are my Favorite...

So, I'm just gonna pass it on to ALL
my Friends that don't have it yet...

Thank You, Dory !!!

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

Oh...And, Thanks to all of you who gave
my Mom some ideas about why I've been
acting sooo strange...

And, Special Thanks to you guys who
suggested EXTRA walks & Kong Toys...

I was good today, but then, my Mom had Abby
proofed the house before she went to work
his morning, too...

I did get an EXTRA Walk & a Kong Toy
full of stuff before she left, though...

Thanks!!!

Abby xxxooo

( Abby's Mom here...Thanks for all the ideas & suggestions...Abby did much better today...I did move the chairs away from the dining room table & I moved the table further from the wall...I didn't see any evidence that she tried to get out or that she did anything else out of the ordinary today...Thanks, again...Pat)

Ideas??

Hi...It's Abby's Mom....

I am totally baffled...Yesterday, Abby told you how she had jumped thru the screen & was outside when I got home...Thank Goodness, I got home when I did...

Well...Today, when I got home there was evidence that she had been running all over the dining room table &, I think, trying to jump thru the window...We have a 1/2 wall on one side of our dining room & she had jumped up on the table next to it & knocked everything off the 1/2 wall...

She had almost knocked everything off a little table in the living room, too...And, she had knocked over the garbage can...

This is so out of character for Abby...She is normally very quiet & calm...I just don't know what has gotten into her...Frankly, I'm a bit concerned...

If anyone has any ideas what might be causing this drastic change in her behavior, please share them with me...

Thanks,
Pat

Freedom...

This is our Dining Room...

See that window...See how high it is??

Keep that in mind...
When my Mom got home from work today...

She drove in the driveway & when she was
shutting the car off, she saw a fluffy little
white tail run around the front of the car...

She jumped out of the car & called "Abby"...

I came running...

She was freaking out...I don't know why...
I was just coming to great her...

She kept asking me how I got out...

So...I showed her this:
She asked me how I got up there to
tear the screen...

I'm not telling!!!

So...Then she hugged me & hugged me &
her eyes started leaking & she said she almost
didn't come right home & she would have
lost me...she was SOOO upset...
Gosh, Mom...Relax...I'm OK...

I just wanted to enjoy the nice weather...

Ummm...I don't think she is gonna leave the
windows open when she goes to work
from now on....

Road Trip...


So...Saturday Morning...My Mom & Dad got all ready
& my Mom put my harness on me & said, "Let's Go" ..

OK, Mom...Open the door...
First we drove by some houses...
We kept going & came to some farms...
Look at these silly dogs I saw along the way...

My Mom said they were Llamas???

Do you think they are related to us Lhasas???
It took a while, but when we got here, I knew
where we were going...
These two Watchdogs are always on guard at...

THE VET'S HOUSE...
I wasn't too upset...Mom asked me to wait
patiently...So, I did....
There were LOTS of other doggies there, but
my Mom said their parents might not like it if
she took their picture...So I can't show you the
friends I made while we waited...

She said I could talk to these guys, though, & we
could take their picture...I think they live here or
somthing, cuz they are here every time I come...

They don't talk much, though...I think the Vet
trained them not to bark & run around too much...
I met this guy, too...Do you think he is related

Sorry the picture is sooo blurry...My Mom is
not the best photographer...
Then the cute lady came out & said, "Abby"...

Uh Oh...I don't think I like this table...
And, I KNOW I don't like THAT place...

I remember being there when I had that
Pan-Crit-Itus Stuff...

Mom: PLEASE, don't let them take me in there...OK??
They didn't take me in that awful room, but the
Vet did give me one of those Picky Things & squirted
some Worm Medicine down my throat...

I told him I wasn't a worm, but he didn't listen...

Anyway...Then it was time to go, so I stopped outside
to read some Pee-Mail & leave some, too...
Then we started our Road Trip home...

Thanks for coming along...

Our 4th of July BBQ...On the 5th of July??

My Mom never gets the date right...
Last Year our 4th of July BBQ was on the 6th...

Anyway...I kind of just chilled all morning...
I knew there was something going on cuz
my Mom was running aroung like a nut...
My Dad went outside...
He got that noisy tractor thing out that
makes the grass shorter...
Mom took some towels out of the dryer so
I kept them warm until she folded them...
The house smelled like lots of yummy stuff
so I knew it was almost time for the BBQ...

Are they here yet, Mom???
Yep...Here they are...

Here's Maddy & that cute little boy is Jay...

That guy relaxing in the chair is my human
sister, Chrissy's hubby, John...

We're sooo glad he is here with us this year...
Last year he was far away in Iraq...
This is Emmie...
Maddie & Emmie went in the pool while
Jay found some sticks in the yard...
I waited for crumbs to fall...I wanted to make
sure there wasn't much of a mess for my Mom
to clean up after everybody left...

I sat with Jenny for a while...She had a little
hamburger left over...She shared it with me...

I like Jenny...
Jeff had to go in the pool really quick
when Maddie decided she could swim
without her Life Jacket...

I didn't know Jeff could move that fast...
After that my Dad said pool time was over
& he took the ladder down...

Jay was snoopervising...
Hey, Mom: Everyone is getting their stuff
together...Is the BBQ over??
Can we have another one next weekend??

Thanks for coming to our BBQ...

Hope you had as much fun as I did...

Compromise...


OK...Look at this...

This guy was just walking around

My Front Yard like he owns the place...




I'm not giving up the quest,

but sometimes it's just easier to settle

for the ones that don't run up a tree...
