I've had a hard day

First off the weather has been so hot that even when i go out to pee i over heat. Then my mom decides that since its hot out it's the perfect time to give me a bath. I got shuttled back and forth to our old house to trim the bushes and only got 20 minutes at the dog park. I'm just going to curl up with my stuffed squirrel and take a nap in my, i mean my parents room with the a/c on. Lets see if they can get me to fetch any balls today.

Look Mom I'm Flying!!!

Just kidding. I have my feet firmly planted on the ground. My head? Well that's another story.

This is my new summer-time sunshine reflecting coat. You see because my back is black (well mostly) I over heat a lot in the summer time when the suns out, and that keeps me inside even on the most beautiful of days. Now I have my snazzy new coat to keep that sunshine at bay.

My new 'pet' project.

Ok I couldn't resist the pun. These little guys were laid on the pool cover of PoPo's pool. She is taking care of the other group. They are just starting to get their legs.

Arms should be soon.

Before and After

This is one of the last projects that I really wanted to get done. I hope that I can recreate it later in one of the other places we live.


Now it's hanging a little high, I'll adjust that a little later. I do have to say it was a feat of strength to get that up all by my self (my husband would have helped but he was working)

Shhhhh.... I grabbed my mom's camera when she wasn't looking

I just wanted to give my own update. I've been shuffled around from place to place for so long now that I was concerned that you may have forgotten about me.

Now I took these photos myself and well that's not a flattering shot of my backside. How did that get loaded? So bare with me I don't have thumbs, my mom keeps saying they're on back order. I don't think I believe her anymore.

We all seem to be doing OK. My dad absolutely LOVES his new job and my mom can't wait to get settled in to find a new job herself, she really didn't like her old one. My Grandma's and Grandpa are great, they feed me stuff from the table when my parents aren't looking. I've gotten to see my cousin Harper a bunch of times, I love her because she's at the perfect sniffing height, and I can follow her around the house now that she's mobile. My aunt's and uncle (and uncle to be) are really fun. I get so excited when I see them that I run around crazy in the yard. And I'm told that pretty soon I get to see Ernie* again. I haven't seen him since this past fall. I hope he hasn't forgotten me. I get so nervous around him, he's so big and handsome.

Ooops, dropped it.

This is me on an African safari. Well I haven't been to Africa yet but with the number of trips in the car it feels like I could have been there and back already.

I haven't figured out when the timer setting on the camera will go off.
I want to give a "shout out" to my long lost Brother and Sisters. We'll be together soon.

Oh and Welcome to the Dog Daze of Summer. 90+ degrees in May!? I don't even want to think about August. Stay cool, and cool.

With Much Love,


*PS. This is Ernie, I told you he was handsome.

the search continues...

Due to the possibility of asbestos* in the property, we are continuing our search for a new home.

This may take a while so bare with us, it may be quite awhile before you are all invited to help us move (how exciting!) or paint (how thrilling!) or install new flooring (you know who you are.)

We'll keep you informed, we may even invite you just to visit (it could happen).

*Asbestos (a misapplication of Latin: asbestos "quicklime" from Greek ἄσβεστος: a, "not" and sbestos, "extinguishable") describes any of a group of minerals that can be fibrous, many of which are metamorphic and are hydrous magnesium silicates. These minerals, together with their occurrences, uses, and associated hazards, have been discussed in detail by Guthrie and Mossman (1993).

The name is derived for its historical use in lamp wicks; the resistance of asbestos to fire has long been exploited for a variety of purposes. Asbestos was used in fabrics such as Egyptian burial cloths and Charlemagne's tablecloth (which according to legend, he threw in a fire to clean). Asbestos occurs naturally in many forms (see below); it is mined from metamorphic rocks.

When asbestos is used for its resistance to fire or heat, the fibers are often mixed with cement or woven into fabric or mats. Asbestos is used in brake shoes and gaskets for its heat resistance, and in the past was used on electric oven and hotplate wiring for its electrical insulation at elevated temperature, and in buildings for its flame-retardant and insulating properties, tensile strength, flexibility, and resistance to chemicals. The inhalation of amphibole asbestos fibers, however, can cause a number of serious illnesses, including cancer. Many uses of asbestos are banned in multiple countries.
