Dog Days of Summer - We're Catching Up!

We're a little behind on the 'Dog Days of Summer' posts, and while I'm not 100% confident Mom will post every day, we still want to play along.   Here's the schedule, and we're going to try to catch up!

August 1st, Best Smiles:

I think Abby's smiling.  Or she's crazed by the scent of dried lamb lung pieces.  One of the two - it's hard to tell.

Me? I'm totally smiling!
August 2nd, Sleeping

Erm, this one is sort of tough, because as our buddy Tank pointed out, we pretty much don't ever sleep.  (Well, we do sleep while Mom is at work, so we'll be all rested when Mom comes home - because when Mom comes home from a long day at work, she totally needs bouncy dogs in her face.  Trust me.  She loves it!  I know she does!

So we had to look in our archives for some sleeping photos...   I finally found a photo of us both sleeping.  It was the first day Abby came home - she was worn out from all the excitement, and I was worn out from the little ball of fluff that came home with us.

I think this is one of the 3 pictures we have of Abby where she's actually sleeping.
August 3rd, Favorite Toy.

Heh.  This is a total no-brainer. 

Really.  This frisbee thing is The. Best. Toy. Ever.

Frisbee flip with a three-quarter twist.  Degree of difficulty: 3.5; deduction for missing the frisbee.

Frisbee catch in the pike position.  Degree of difficulty: 2.0; full points for catching the frisbee

I may have to crack the whip a bit to get Mom to actually help us post for the Dog Days of Summer, but were totally looking forward to this!

Catch up is fine - I specifically remember Norwood saying there are no rules. Anyway, you more than make up for it by writing such an entertaining post. I can't believe you have so few sleeping photos. Mom spent hours looking through my sleeping photos to try to find the cutest.

I may have to post mine on my blog too, so those who don't do instagram can also enjoy my unbearable cuteness.

your pal,

I have one word for you... preload.

I KNEW that you never slept. Good of you to finally admit it. What is with the Frisbee? You are as bad as Pea with his stupid tennis ball.
