Back from a Hy-ate-us

Hi! I'm back! Mom decided to take a "Hy-ate-us" from blogging for a few days while she dealt with "the real world". I don't know who Hy is, or why he ate us (although I bet Abby would make a great rump roast - heehee!), and I don't know of this "real world" of which Mom speaks, so I'll just nod and smile.

So... While we've been gone, our roof has been removed, but not yet replaced. Something with the guys who put the new roof on being behind in their schedule or something. So, our roof currently looks like this:

If you think some of those pictures look like they are taken from the top of the house, you would be right. Uncle Larry doesn't seem to have any fear of heights. Or he's crazy. Or both.

So, if the roof ever gets finished, I'll get you more pictures. In the meantime, apparently Hy has also eaten the roofers. Heehee. Although Mom doesn't seem to find that funny.

While we haven't been wandering the bloggie world, we have been doing lots of walkies in the real world. And fall has hit the Wasatch, so the walkies are becoming quite aesthetically pleasing.

The Olympic Park with fall colors on the hill.

And, of course, there has been much swimming and fetching.

Here are a few more pictures of the fall colors right around the house...

There has also been much bitey-face (but what else is new, eh?).

Notice the dust and debris flying? Yep. That sort of negates our inherent hypo-allergenic qualities. Heehee!

A little bitey-butt. (Hey, a Hippobottumus is the perfect target for bitey-butt!)

My what white toofies my sister has... *snicker*snicker*

And what cool tail action I have! Heehee!

I mentioned my sister's toofies, right? Heehee.

Eat my dust! (Literally!)

"Got your ear!!!"

But at the end of the day, we're still sisters.

And totally innocent.


BTW, it'll take us a few days to catch up bloggies, so be patient with us...

Sorry to hear about the roof and roofers. Nothing more frustrating. Fall colors are beautiful. We still have a few weeks for color in our area. Love all the rumble and tumble! Looks like fun!

Hope your roof gets fixed fast! The colors are so pretty there!!! We do not have that much color yet. The bitey face pics are GREAT!!! Simply cannot get enough of those!!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

Humans are weird about how they get fixes done to their house. They always seem to get it halfway finished and then wait several days to finish. Not sure why they do that.

Hi, Fiona!
My mom does not like when someone takes its time to finish something! Hmmm...
I hope your roof will be finished soon!
Glad you and Abby are having nice walkies and wrestling matches!
Kisses and hugs

That's my kind of play! Looks like you were having tons of fun.

I sure hope you get your roof back soon!

Wow great action shots and Mommy loves the colors. You should make an action movie. Whenever I do bitey face with my friends, Mommy makes me stop. Can you tell her its ok to do bitey face

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Clive is sitting here very jealous looking at all the fun you two have together!

Love the autumn colours - it's our favourite time of year.

Thank you so much for supporting Irish Guide Dogs and buying some Christmas Cards - we really appreciate it! You are very good!

best wishes

I am sure the roofer guys got tired and had to take a nap. Hey! It is hard work. I just hope it doesn't rain while your roof is all nekked like that.

Just stopping by to say hello. Those pictures of the dogs playing are just outstanding. Makes me wish my dog had a regular playmate.

you live in a very pretty area.

we just wanted to let you know that we ordered some tags from your place and we also voted for Abby's tag line. we like those tags! thanks for letting us know about them.

your human is a very good photographer to get all of those great action shots of you girls. we like them!


Dozer and Coop said...

Great fight scenes - the flying dust is AWESOME! We already voted for you and apparently you only get to vote once. How can we stuff the ballot box with rules like that?

Love, Dozer and Cooper
