Company's Coming?

Mama said we might be having company tomorrow night and whoever this "Irene" is must be a trouble maker because she and dad have been putting stuff away outside so she won't break anything.  As long as she doesn't play with any of my stuff...even our big blue bowl which Mama calls, pool, got put away.  The weather guy says "Irene" might be slowed down when she gets here so maybe that means she'll be too tired to cause much trouble.

I hope she leaves everyone else's stuff alone, too.

Full Moon Camping

 It was a full moon Saturday night. 

 We were at the campground for the weekend.

All was well until Maddy found out that sometimes a sofa can fold out into a bed.  She was apparently not a fan of the idea.  I think she spent most of the night with one eye open in case it decided to fold back up and swallow us.

Wordless Wednesday

Who Emptied the Big Blue Bowl?

None of my greyhounds will get in the kiddie pool when there is water in it.  They seem to think its just an outside water bowl.  Today I drained the water, and in they went.  Well, except  for Veil, who still didn't trust that water wouldn't somehow appear.

Week-end Dilema

This weekend is the annual greyhound picnic for the adoption group where I adopted my three greys.  Last year, we took Beckett and Veil.  Maddy wasn't with us yet.  I agreed to do the nail clipping and ear cleaning booth again this year but I am thinking of leaving my guys home instead of having them have to watch the excitement again from the ex-pen.  As much as I love showing them off, it doesn't seem fair to them and they really weren't happy about it.

Last year.

Happy Campers!

This is Maddy, telling you about our adventure this weekend!
I didn't know what was going on yesterday when Mama started packing up stuff (including toys, treats and food).  To tell you the truth I was a little wary of the whole thing.   Beckett started sticking to her like glue and bouncing around so I figured it couldn't be all bad and Veil said she knew where we were going but she wouldn’t tell me.  It was a surprise!! 

We all loaded into the jeep and off we went.  We arrived at a place with lots of funny looking houses made of canvas and other ones with wheels.  Ours was the last one in the row and Mr. J was already there waiting for us.  There were lots of things to see and hear and smell.  Kids playing, dogs barking (not us of course - well maybe once or twice), steaks and hamburgers grilling!  Veil told me that she and Beckett stayed here all summer last year. 

Better than watching TV!
I watched Beckett and Veil hop up into the trailer and now I am just as good at it as they are.  When we got in, there was 3 brand new dog beds for us.  I picked the one where you can see out the screen door and watch what’s happening.  Veil called “dibs” on another bed.  She did get to sleep there too, but just like home she had to share it.
This is where I'm sleeping!

Beckett and Veil had a good place to watch from too.

Next time I hope it doesn't rain so we can get outside more but all in all I enjoyed myself and I didn't even need my thundershirt once! 

I was happy to get home though and ran right in and checked out the house to make sure everything was where I left it.  Now I need a sleep...

The Murder of Mr. Hedgehog

The crime scene

The culprit

yeah, I did it.
 In my defence, he was trying to take my blanket... and don't worry, the death announcement was premature. Mama did surgery on him and gave him (and all the stuffies) a bath.  It will take me days to get them all stinky again.
