"I am because my little dog knows me."
-- Gertrude Stein
Hi friends,
Well, I'm back again with another report on my trip to the country. I slept most of the day today but poor Mommy had to go to work and she is exhausted. I begged and begged & she agreed to post some pictures and believe it or not she got 3 videos to load. These pictures are mostly just of us doggies being our usual pretty and handsome selves. I can say that cause it's true.....hee hee!!

This trip Mommy didn't take near as many pictures as usual, only 80 or so not counting the videos. These are Mommy's favorites of us doggies. Tomorrow we will post about the cow dogs and bugs we saw, no rabbits this time and nothing got killed except a cicada Roxie killed (they are the bugs that make so much racket when it's really hot).

Me and my Sammy

Everybody taking a breather after a rough afternoon in the heat.

Since it was so hot the Mommies made us come inside during the hottest time of the day. The temps were between 100 and 106 the whole time we was there. So what was there to do but nap. I parked myself in my favorite spot, under the coffee table so I could keep my eye on Mommy and my Sammy.

Left to right Jake, Roxie, Andy and Sammy.

Roxie in her "froggie position".

Andy playing with one of his tennis balls.

My Sammy...."what a hunk!!!"



Before the videos, here is a shot Mommy caught while I was teaching Sammy the fine art of roaching. That's Sammy tail in the bottom right of the picture.
Mommy said I was showing off all my stuff to Sammy. "blushing". Well, a girl has to do what a girl has to do.

This first video, we tried to load last night without any luck. It was us while we was waiting for our after dinner cookie. We know we can't have a cookie until we go outside to get it. Aunt Mary is tricky like that. You can't go back in until you finish your cookie and do your business. Warning ... we sound like a pack of wild dogs, so you might want to lower your speakers.

This next video was us barking because we wanted to go outside while Aunt Mary was mowing the grass.

This last video was me demonstrating the correct way to start a roach.

That's all for tonight. Hope everybody had as good a 4th of July weekend as me and friends did. Wish you all could have been with us. That would have been pawsome.
Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all.........Mona
