Another update!

Hiya!  Yes, I have managed to convince Mom to update our bloggie again! 

What have we been up to?

Well, pretty much more of the same, but no big excitement can be a good thing!  *grin*

Mom and Dad have been doing a good job with our lawn; Mom is watering it and is losing the battle against the weeds, erm, battling the dandelions, while Dad has been dutifully mowing the grass so we don't get lost in in the weeds.  And what is more fun than biteying one's sister in freshly mowed grass?

Abby has no bones in her body...

Not much.  I mean, we could do this All. Day.  Long.

And, of course, Abby has to roll in the grass.  (Although she's not turning green because Dad cuts the grass while we are at doggie class, so she doesn't get the chance to roll moments after the grass has been cut - which is when she turns green...)

I mentioned she's made of rubber, right?  Heehee!
Of course, we've also been able to get in some Quality Frisbee Time.

Mom says she's seen this picture before. I have no idea what she's talking about!

I got it!

It's a bird!  It's a plane!  It's Super Abby!

Heehee.  She didn't catch it here.  But she got great air!

Got it again!
I should mention that the frisbee 'action photos' aren't always of the best quality because Mom is trying to throw the frisbee with her left hand while quickly snapping a photo with her right.  So we're impressed that she gets ANY action photos!

In addition to all our frolicking in the yard, we went to our usual Saturday doggie class.  This week the store was doing it's big 're-opening' so there was all sorts of chaos with an adoption event, and give-aways, and we were trying to impress Jessi's boss' boss  (Jessi is the Turkey Hotdog Lady, who teaches Mom how to feed us turkey hotdogs) with our Most Excellent Behavior.  (Mom got no photos of this because she was too busy to try get us to pretend to be well-behaved dogs!)

However, we also had lots of zoomie times with out buddies Forrest and Jenny.

There was also some time spent on Things To Wear Out Your Dog When You Are Tired.   Much of these things seemed to involve plastic containers with holes in them and treats inside.  Abby and I were not totally sold on the whole concept.

You want me to do what to get treats?  This seems like a lot of work...

Jenny, however, thought these were The Coolest Things Ever.

I, however, was rather taken with a 'ball' that had lots of holes with treats stuffed inside.  Since the treats are bigger than the holes, it takes a little work to get them out, but it was pretty nifty.  (Yes, Mom bought us one...)

We also spent some time do the appropriate suck-up-for-treats behavior.  Heehee!

We KNOW you've got something good in that hip-pouch!

Abby will suck up to anyone for goodies!

Hi.  I'm Fiona.  Do you have any treats?

Good times as always!
