Oh, Life is Swell!

Been battling to get to the computer...sorry...just been really busy! Take yesterday for example. In the morning, I went to Doggy Day Care - how I love going there and playing for hours with my friends. The place is called The Urban Dog:

Yesterday when Dad came to pick me up, I was running about with my pals:

Can you spot me?
Then later in the day, we went to Dad's parent's house for dinner. I got to hang out with the newest addition to our family, baby Devon. I let her pull my beard and grab my fur 'cos she is just a mini-human, and anyway, she is a messy eater. I was on hand to catch anything that she dropped on the floor.
We all hung out and had a delish dinner - corn and London Broil on the barbaque. Yummy. That's Dad with his sisters and nieces:
And here I am, on Dad's lap sniffing the table, which was sadly, devoid of food at the time:
Then this morning, at 7:30am, there was a knock at the door, and WOOHOO, it was Aunty Lynne to come and get me for our weekly 6 mile hike/swim/run! I jumped into her car and off we went. Three hours later, Mom and Dad picked me up from her house, and now I'm heading for a big snooze.

But before I do, I want to thank Jackson from the UK for sending me a most delicious package in the mail. When Mom was in London, she mailed him a SNAX, so he reciprocated with SNACKS. Beautiful baked goods - some even had my name on it! Thank you Jackson, I am still enjoying these a week later as Mother is rationing them....

Speaking of Jackson, we also have to thank him for introducing the Dog Brick toy to us. Mom reviewed it on Swanky Pup this past week. Happy to report that some doggy product samples are on their way to us for review including a doggy life jacket and some toys! Woohoo, no silly clothes! Well, does a life jacket qualify? I mean where the heck is mom going to test that out? The pond? Stay tuned people...

WOW!! We are first!! Your Pop looks just like his sister! Sitting under the baby is the greatest idea because they make a mess and it is good for easy clean up to have us there!!! We got those cookies too and PL2 is rationing them also....THEY ROCK!!!! You look very handsome with your face on the table( but you always look handsome!!) Love and kisses A+A

Wow, six miles is a long hike/swim/etc. No wonder you snoozed when you got home. :)

Sounds like you've had a lovely week.

Happy Tails,

We've never had a baby to clean up after cept for Babystan and he doesn't like if we try and clean up his crumbs....

I've heard daycare is the best if ya like socializin' with other doggies. Due to my somewhat diminutive size, I get scared in large groups...I'm always afraid they might ask me to give a presentation or somethin'...but Stan here loves it. He comes home simply exhausted!

Axel...try that life jacket in one of Philly's finest'd float!

Oh...we're all with ya on the daily dingo. Have ya tried one of those dingo holders?? They make it harder to get the dingo out and ur mom can smear peanut butter in it to make it even tastier....

Love ya buckets, Ax...
