Mom and Dad took us to Moreland for the bar-b-que and arts and crafts on the 4th. It sure was cool in the morning, but then it got HOT!!
Mom took us shopping while Dad waited in line for the food. Everybody stopped to look at us and talk to Mom about us. People kept saying "oh, there's two of them." You know what, there were two other dachshunds there. One was red long haired that his mom carried him in her purse. One looked like Callie, but smaller.
When Dad got the food, they didn't even give us any!!! Mom had water for us and that was all. Then Dad wanted to go back to shop more!!
The pavement was so HOT that Callie went from one piece of shade to the next. Mom had to carry Callie later. Me, Oscar, was the brave man I am and walked very quickly across the hot pavement. You know what, Mom and Dad did not find anything to buy!! Does that mean that we get more toys and treats??
Well, when we got back to the car, Dad moved it to the shade and we got to cool off in the shade of that nice tree.
Dad has cows at the farm and we got to go drive by them. Callie was very interested, but me, Oscar, was too busy trying to cool off the floor of the back seat. Dad said he better not go onto the farm gate because the cows would be scared of us little ones!!
On the way home, we took food to Dad's parents and Mom's mom. Dad's mom doesn't care about seeing us, but Mom's mom, Mama, loves us. She always lets us up in her lap.
Me, Oscar, was running away from all of the loud noises that night. I went to Mom for safety. Callie just sat there and it didn't bother her. What was all those noises about? Dad said that everything was OK and that it was the 4th, so I trusted him.
Well, that was a long day and we have slept all day on the 5th!!
Mom and Dad took us to the MAD MUG meetup on Sunday. Boy we had fun. Oscar ran around with some of the other dachshunds and I, Callie, stood there and druled. I do that when I am around so many other dogs!! Mom kept wiping my mouth and I didn't like it. Dad held me in his arms and that felt good. There were two dogs there that still have all of their man things and they would not leave the girls alone!! Including Oscar. I think that is funny that they think that Oscar is a girl!! He is so small!! Mom took one of our squeeky toys and one young brown and white dachshund would not let it go. A boy there had a great time playing with him. Well, we stayed till it got late. We could not wait to get home and rest after all of that!!
For some reason Mom and Alicia are home a whole lot more. We heard that Alicia is done with University of Georgia. She understands us because she told us that she has a degree in Wildlife, in the school of Forestry, Bachelor of Science, Magna cum laude. That means that she is almost as smart as we are. Why would she want to get a J_O_B and leave us??
Callie said Mom is at home more because she doesn't have to work till August. We hear music all the time, so we think she teaches music.
Robert is at home late now. He sure does smell like dirt and sweat. Callie said he might build us a water play land too.
Dad is still on his regular times. He never gets a break. Callie tries to make him relax and I give him all kinds of kisses.
Ella has come over alot more too.
We went to the dog park the other day and everybody watched me run FAST! There were bike riders and runners. We chased them. We met Smoky there. He is in Dogster, but we can't find him. Alicia made Callie walk the whole way. Ella brought a boy human named Josh. Oh, he has been to our house alot lately. You know what, he goes off with Alicia sometimes and leaves Ella at our house to play.
Oh well, Mom says it's time for bed...after we go out to pee and poop.
