Why Our Weekly Update Was Delayed a Day

We have filed formal complaints with our congressperson, our senators, the SPCA, and anyone else who will listen (and lots of people who won't).  Mom typically helps us update the bloggie on Sundays, but yesterday, it didn't happen.  And do you know what her excuse was?!?  Get this:  "I was too busy looking at the 87 million photos I took of other doggies when I went to the dog park this morning and didn't take you along."  Seriously.  And how, exactly, is that an excuse?!?  She told us that she didn't take us to the park because she was running errands afterward and didn't want to leave us in the car because it was warm out (okay, that part is acceptable), but the whole concept of going to a doggie park to take photos of dogs that aren't us is just incomprehensible. And reprehensible.  And a lot of other -ibles that I can't think of at the moment.


However, I am not going to condone Mom's behavior by posting photos of Other Doggies on our bloggie. If you want to see Mom being traitorous and taking photos of Other Doggies, go check out her photos.

In the meantime, we have been busy, busy, busy.  The weather has been nice, and there were tennis balls to be chased.



And ballet moves to rehearse.

And zoomies to be zoomed!


Of course, it hasn't all been fun and games this week.  We've had to do some posing for Mom.  Of course, we demanded treats for our participation, and we were handsomely rewarded!

This is Abby's "Woe is me, I must have treats to stop looking so sad" face.  It totally works!
This last week has totally worn us out!

Heehee!  Have a great week!

You WILL NOT BELIEVE What Happened This Week

This is NOT A JOKE.  Seriously.  In the middle of this last week, we got snow!!!  Even though we are in the mountains and have been known to have some wacky weather, by mid-June we usually assume we are done with snow until at least September... But apparently Mother Nature decided to play a joke on us.

It didn't last long - the snow didn't even stick around for 24 hours, but we made the best of it.

Snow?  Really?  Even we aren't completely amused.

So, Mom... When do we get to go play in the snow?

Snowballs in June!

Jaws of Doom!

I had a vet appointment most of Wednesday, but there was enough snow left when I got home that I could catch some snowballs, too!
And Mom took advantage of the inclement weather to get some 'dramatic' shots.

And we got some indoor squeaky ball time!

Jaws of Doom!


Baby bird!

I think Mom forgot to pay the gravity bill this month...

Seriously.  Look at my ears; no gravity here!

Mom also decided that this was the week to start seeing if she could get a photo of both - or either - of us holding a flag in our mouth(s) - in preparation for a 4th of July photo shoot.  Well, lemme tell ya... The only thing I like holding in my mouth is a tennis ball. So Mom improvised....


Mom says we need to keep trying.  I say as long as there are treats involved, I'm willing to try some more!

The rest of the week has been spent in the usual tennis ball related activities.

So yeah, we've had an exciting week!
