OMD, we had the best weekend evfur in a long, long time! While grandma came to visit mom a couple weekend ago and that was pawsome and we were super happy to see her, this weekend *both* our grandma and grandpaw visited!! They didn’t bring Adeline or Samson so we had them all to ourselves! But *best* of all, our Uncle Joey came to visit this weekend too!!!! He and Shakespeare go way back all the way to Shakey’s puppyhood – he and his Uncle Joey are bros, BOL! Shakey was so happy to see him that our mom thought he was gonna explode! Luckily he didn't, in case you pups were worried. Woof!
Mom took us to a house where her furiend was petsitting for doggies, a bunch of cats, and chickens! (More about the chickens later!) We met two of the doggies through the fence first. Our new furiends are Guinnie, who's a catahoula leopard dog, and Cavill, who's a super furry malamute. Finally, doggies our size, BOL! We all walked to the park across the street; mom walked us and her furiend walked Guinnie and Cavill. Her furiend's gotta be strong, BOL! So we walked around the park and then we went to the dog park there! A new dog park to mark up! Woof! We had it all to ourselves! Well at least until other doggies showed up a little while later, but we were pretty worn out anypaw (Guinnie and Cavill are like 3 or something so they had lots more energy). A greyhound named Flash (BOL! Pawfect!) showed up and wanted us to run with him - kids, sheesh! BOL
After the dog park, we got to run around Guinnie and Cavill's backyard. We met their fursis Truffles, she's a snorkie mix and aptly named cause she snorts a lot. We also met chickens! Chickens!! Actual, live, chickens that were not in our food bowl!!! They were a chicken coop with a short fence around it, so we couldn't get too close to them, but we could still bark at them! We'd bark at them, they'd make whatever noises chickens make (mom says they cluck), then we'd bark back. Then we'd pee near the coop fence to let em know who was boss. Then we went home and ate their siblings for dinner, BOL!
Oh, and Shakey got to bark at a cat, who was just hanging in the grass on the other side of the fence and who could care less that he was even there.
Mom's furiend showed Guinnie and Cavill's mom a pic of us four together and now their mom wants us to have playdates. BOL, kids!
Pups, we are so sad! Our good furiend Haley went to the bridge yesterday. :( She'd been acting off for a few days, so her moms took her to the vet, and they xrayed her and found a big tumor in her tummy. Instead of putting her through surgery with a small chance of recovery, they decided to send her to rainbow bridge.
We've known Haley and her moms almost all our lives. Ok, we never met them, but her mom would share stories and photos of Haley running around all the lakes in northern Michigan, and Haley would chase geese and run in the water and run up and down the beach and run in the snow and she had such a fun, loving life. We always enjoyed reading about her adventures! She was so cared for and loved. Now she's running in the clouds with Izzy and Skeeter and Libby and Sassy and Sophie and all our other pals who've gone away this year. OMD, it's been a sad year… We need treats like mom needs wine and chocolate….
