The Stuffy Mi-grey-shun!

Miss Veil here today to tell you about some strange happenings at our house.
This morning it was only 4 degrees (celcius, of course) and soon it will be time for those Canadian Geese to fly south. We have been having a bit of a migrating issue here with our stuffies and toys.

Every day Mom picks them up and puts them in the toy baskets and when she comes home from work - they have gone to the east side of the house and piled themselves all up in the bedroom. They seem to be trying to get in the closet. Apparently toys migrate west to east!

I am usually (OK, always) asleep when this takes place so I asked Maddy if she had seen or heard anything.

Veil: So Maddy, did you see the toys come in here with us today?

Maddy: Yes, and I tried to wake you up by tugging on the bedskirt of the bed so's not to scare them off. Then that horrible little hedgehog saw me gently pulling on it and he came over and tore it. Now, I know he and I have had issues in the past, but that was uncalled for. Make sure you tell Mom that you saw that, will you.

Down the Path

Miss Veil says the walking path behind our trailer at the campground has all kinds of interesting smells.  Each blade of grass must be sniffed individually.


Taking a break in the shade.



It's hard work checking all those wee-mails.

Vacation!


Beckett is very pleased that he has the honor of having his picture in Retired From Racing Not From Life's 2012 Art Book.Go here to check it out! The proceeds of all the sales are donated to Ohio State University's Greyhound Health and Wellness Program.

We have been spending some vacation time at the campground and all the dogs seem to be enjoying it.  Last night Beckett met a lovely lady greyhound named Mandy, who also raced at Wonderland.  She was camping here overnight on her way to visit Newfoundland and Labrador.   




Maddy is doing so well walking around here with all the barking dogs.  She hasn't barked back once and just ignores them.  Must be the change of scenery, even two little white teacup poodles didn't get a rise out of her.  











Miss Veil, on the other hand, cries and turns back to the trailer if a dog barks at her, unless Beckett or Maddy is with her.  They must be her body guards. She has also decided the couch in the trailer is just her size.


Hope everyone has a great weekend!
