QUOTE OF THE DAY: (courtesy of Khyra)

"Nobody can fully understand the meaning of love unless he's owned by a dog."
-- Gene Hill
Hi dear friends,

Mommy choose our "quote of the day" for today because it is her favorite quote of all time and one that she believes in with all her heart. Mommy tells me that before she got Angel Samantha, she was not a very happy person. She worked 10 to 12 hours a day and had no life. Samantha changed all of that. Mommy had someone to take care and took her responsibility of taking care of her very seriously. Mommy loved that little red dachshund just as much as Samantha loved her. They were always together and if Samantha wasn't welcome everywhere Mommy went then Mommy wasn't going. Samantha and Mommy were together for almost 15 years and I know that Samantha was the first doggie she every had of her own and will always be Mommy's number #1 girl but everybody also knows that my Mommy has lots of love to go around. So let me introduce you to Mommy's #2 girl ..... ME!!!

All of these pictures were taken during my trip to the country on Labor Day weekend. These are the pictures that Mommy liked the best of her #2 girl. Which do you like the best?

The next pictures are of Mommy's #3 girl, Roxie. Mommy fell in love with Roxie the first time she saw her. Why? Look at that face. How could anyone not fall in love with her and she has the same mannerisms and beauty that Angel Samantha had. I don't mind sharing my Mommy because I know I get to go home with Mommy, at the end of our visits and she doesn't. Of course I do get a little jelly if Roxie is on Mommy lap all the time but Mommy has room in her lap for all both of us and my Sammy too.

 that I'm through with all that mushy stuff let me show ya a few pictures of the rest of the gang. Yesterday's post was full of Jacks's pictures.....oops, I meant today I'm gonna share a picture of the other three in our pack.




Some doggies have asked if Sammy and I had in alone time together. Not much. Sammy is kinda shy and doesn't display his feeling for everyone to see, least of all the Mommies. This picture was the only shot Mommy got of us together. He is so cute.....he makes all kinds of cute little sounds when he sleeps. Be still my heart!!! for some videos. These videos only took a few minutes each to load because they are so tiny. All but the last one were mistakes. Mommy sometimes messes up when she is taking pictures and ends up with tiny videos she didn't mean to take. What a Doofuss!! They say that "out takes" are sometimes better so here goes.





This video is of me digging in a hole in front of the porch. My Sammy started digging first and then I had to help him. Before our trip was over, we had all had a hand in making that hole much bigger. We aren't telling but there was something tasting in there.

Gotto go now. Mommy says she can't miss America's Got Talent, so I'll post some more tomorrow.
Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all...Mona

Hi Mona, Thanks for putting my pic on your blog yesterday.
You need a new system of ranking mom's heart. How about going from #1 to ... A as in alpha??
I think you are Always in the driver's seat, and also that you do some PAWsome hole digging.

Love all the pics and videos. See your mama learned the lesson I learned at a young age, a pet makes your life complete. My favorite quote:

"Dogs are not our whole lives, but they sure make ours lives whole" by Roger Caras!

Growing up we moved around a lot so our dogs were our constant friends.
