Quick Update

First, Mom cut the grass for the first time this summer.  While we still have some patches where new grass is still struggling to grow, there were other sections that were threatening to swallow small dogs, so Mom broke out the lawn mower, and we barked our enthusiasm throughout the entire process.  Much to Dad's delight, I might add!

As soon as Mom was done, we went out to inspect her work.

We tested the grass for bitey-face-ability

And then Abby tested it for roll-ability

And she kept testing it

The yard even stood up to Puppy Spaziness

Abby, however, failed the modesty test!  Heehee!

Remember last year when our grass was cut, and Abby took it upon herself to dye herself green? (BTW, she was a shameless hussy last year, too...) Anyhoo, Abby did a very nice job of becoming light green (with darker green spots) again this year.

In the words of Kermit the Frog, "It's not easy being green!"


And in other excitement, last week there was a little Corgi puppy who was trying her best to distract us while we were trying to be good dogs.

Lookit that little suck-up Corgi puppy!

She was pretty cute!

*sheesh*  Talk about a suck up!

And we worked on 'leave it'.  I should say, I worked on 'leave it' while Abby worked on hoarding the dog cookies...

We're off to doggie class again tomorrow - it gives us an hour a week where Mom can ponder why we aren't that good the rest of the week!  Heehee!

Shameless Hussy... My EYES MY EYES BaaaaaWaaaaah. I am certainly glad that my Ernie doesn't read blogs...
This should have been labeled X-rated. I'm just sayin. hehehe

Wowzers! You look great in green!
Our mom is a sucker for Corgis. She thinks they look like short Siberians -- except for the whole "paying attention" part. I have no idea what she means by that.
Play bows,

Grass rolling huzzy. Look at her. As if!

Hey, what's with all those cookies for her anyway? Where are Miss Fiona's cookies?

P.S. PeeWee says there is a doodle dog in his new agility class. Doodle dog has to be in lockdown when he isn't in the ring. Pea thought that was funny until momma put HIM in lockdown for being such a mental fits jerk. Seems like Mr. Doodle is in lockdown for the same reason.

Howdy Girls, love all your photos. We especially love the green Abby and the school ones with the little corgi. Dad only wishes I (Stella) would stay as well as you two hehehe. Hope your weekend was great. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
