                                        He's at it again..... Bad Boy
 Jake does what I call counter surfing, it can be any counter, he does not care, as long as he finds something, and it can be anything. This is whats left of the 2 new bags of cough drops I got last week, because he ate the last ones, even the package they came in. They were in a bag on my dresser, in my bedroom, he got them and he also must have gotten the new shirt that was under the bag, and he put a hole in that. At least he left some of the foil package they came in, he does not digest foil well. He likes mentholated cough drops, oh he likes everything.

Water on his nose
                                        He's a Good Boy?

     I've said a million times, having 4 dogs is a lot of work, by yourself, with help it's not so bad. Pete has been gone all week, helping Chris. The boys & Betty have not run since Wednesday, and they have a little energy built up.. We are still breaking heat temperature records with about 116, to hot to do anything really. Thanks Tom,& Victoria for helping entertain the dogs on Saturday.

Hmmm Who

     I really know who did this, I thought that he got over this, I was wrong. He has not gotten over anything, WE have  learned to put the garbage up all the time. I obliviously forgot, and Jake has not. I should have known better. As soon as someone goes out the door, the first thing he does is head for the garbage can. Never fails.
                                  What was I thinking

Pete saw this and thinks we should get this to  keep him out

                                      But they are Good Dogs

He's Gone Again

              Pete and Chris had to leave, it's time for Chris to go back to the Army.

    And as they are all ready to go, the u-haul truck breaks down, and they are waiting for them to come fix it. Here's the boys trying one more time to get Pete to stay home.

                                                Sorry boys
 They came and could not fix the truck.  Pete and Chris had to wait till morning and drive it to the shop to have it fixed. It was a broken headlight connector. They have finally hit the road only about 12 hours behind what they had planned.  No rush they left themselves plenty of time. I hope. And yes he said good by to Lucy I just did not get it on film.                  
                                              We are sure gonna miss Chris

 This Pete's way of watching Tv. The Pro Colorado bike race is on, and this is Pete and the boys after about 40 minutes into it. Pete and the boys are into mornings, and to sit and watch Tv at night just does not work. He usually  will finish watching in the morning. I think it's kinda funny.

Right In The Middle

Yes the dogs always seem to need to be right in the middle of EVERYTHING, it's okay, we kinda like it. Here's more of right in the middle of everything.

 You should notice that Lucy has, as always the best seat in the house, her own bed, and yes that is Chris back home from the Army. He has come home to pack his stuff and get his car and move, this time he won't be back for a while, he's moving into the Army life, and they gave him a couple of days to do it.

   The dogs only need, to be able to be in the same room as everyone else, to be happy. They need a little floor space, so they can lay right in the middle of everything. And they are happy.

That Vacuum

     Since I wasn't feeling good, no real cleaning was getting done. So yesterday I vacuumed, and you know the dogs don't really care for me doing that, so they like to  get in the way.

I was in the kitchen vacuuming and Jake came around the corner and attacked. This is the first time he's ever done anything like that, usually he just follows me around. Actually the picture is the third time he came in after it. I think Elvis put him up to it cause he was right behind him each time. Silly dogs

                                       What  Good Dogs they all are

Just Like That

                                  And just like that it's gone
    I woke up this morning and feel all better. Whatever it was, has gone as quick as it came, thank goodness. I sorta felt it last night.  As the pictures show, everything seems back to normal.

 I think you know by now I am sick, have been sick for almost 3 weeks now, and of course, it's been the craziest 3 weeks we've had at our house in a long time. With Chris being home for some of it, and it's some what crazy everyday with 4 dogs. Finally today i feel a little better.

              Thanks to Tom & Pete for taking my share of the work with the dogs

All 4 At 4:30

  I'm so happy, this is the first time Elvis, Betty and Lucy have included Jake in there 4:30 ritual. As I've said before this happens everyday at our house, you can set the clock by it. They get together usually the 3 dogs Elvis has Lucy lick his ears, I know gross huh, and Betty lick his collar, again gross and Jake has always acted like he did not know what they were doing, kinda ignoring them. Either they decided to let him in, or he's figured out why they do it, and wants to be part of it, here's all 4 at 4:30. Oh did I mention a lot of weird noise goes along with this.

Happy Birthday Boys

                                      Elvis and Jake turned 3 yesterday

 I wish I could say we did something special for them, but we did not. Unfortunately I still do not feel very good so we were lucky to get these pictures. Amy & Coco brought party hats over, so they got some biscuits while I tried to get pictures.

                                       Happy Birthday Boys
                                      What Good Boys you are

Waiting Again

Waiting is so hard sometimes. Kai'a was over for dinner the other night, the dogs and Pete waited patiently for her to finish dinner. Pete to give her a bath, the dogs to try and get any goodies she left behind.

See Me

  Elvis is a funny boy. When I talk to him like he's in trouble, he closes his eyes and won't look at me. I think, he thinks, if I can't see him, I won't be mad at him. I am asking him if he is begging, and this is what I got.

He's begging in this one too, so I said "ELVIS, are you begging"
He says " I got my eyes closed so you can't see me begging"
                                             He's a GOOD BOY

It's Hot

 It's REALLY HOT here, it's been 110 to 115 this past week. The dogs don't really mind it to much, they still like to lay outside a little bit, I try not to let them stay out to long, and usually only in the morning, I make Lucy come in she's older, she likes to stand in the yard and wait for me to tell her to come in, even though she really don't want to be out there, it's a game we play. Mostly when it's this hot and after dad has  run with them, they lay around and do nothing....
