Catching Up Is Hard To Do...
Hello! Dog Mom here. I'm hijacking this blog entry today to give a little update on our trip, for those of you who are interested. We actually went out west for my brother-in-law's wedding. We stayed on a ranch in Arizona, and he got married there (he's the head wrangler). We went to Vegas for a few extra days to see the sights and celebrate (as a friend cutely put it) "my first 30th birthday". Thanks to all of you for the birthday wishes! My day was filled with a tour of the Hoover Dam, some gambling, a celebrity impersonator show, and a dinner buffet. Not too bad!
When we came home, we took a 4 hour nap, as we had taken the red-eye home. Then I went to pick up the boyz. They were so excited to see me! So excited, in fact, that they were pretty wild. So, I took them to the Dog Park for a couple hours to run off some of that energy. The other owners at the dog park and I decided that Gus considers himself the greeting committee. Every dog that got out of their car Gus was ready and waiting at the gate to greet them! We also decided that Waldo thinks he is the policeman. If dogs are chasing each other, or barking at each other, he runs up to them and starts barking until they stop. I imagine he's saying things like, "Stop that running, kids, you're going to get hurt", or "Break it up, gentlemen, or you're going to jail."
The other thing we realized when we came home was that we had a lot of catching up to do!! No groceries in the house, laundry to do, emails to write, job hunting to catch up on. I went to my google reader, and *gasp!* 516 dog posts to read!!! AAK! Needless to say, I probably won't get around to commenting on all of your posts for a while. But I WILL go and read them all eventually.
If everyone wants to take a 4 day break so I won't have too many new posts to read, that would be great. :)
One quick story about the boyz:
I got a mylar balloon from one of my friends. They do NOT like it.
(sorry for the poor picture quality--can you see the boys slinking in the background?)
