    Thank you Spence et al. and happy 4th to you as well.

    Kiya is lovely.

    I’m laughing about the Thieves being the “centerfold” of the calendar.

    Dawson: To answer your question–Yes, “anybody’s” is correct.

    Good morning all.

    Kat, WE think you should be Miz Kat. You are so grown up and gawgeous!

    Kiya is relaxing into the HOH but still wants mom close by.

    2:42 pm on July 4th, 2014

    Wose: Centerfold! Us? Does it hurt? No matter, we are in. (Whispering) we are in the midst of hatching a most diabolical plan for you calendar. Stay tuned after the auction ends.

    Does Mr. Redbone or Beau have any pearls of wisdom to impart about Independence Day?

    Have a good day with your critters…

    THIEVES! Youse would be the Burt Reynolds of the calendar! I wanted Rio to be the centerfold, but alas, he does not want to be on the calendar. sniff

  36. Tupper and Gilly
    5:03 pm on July 4th, 2014

    Rio doesn’t want to be the centerfold cuz he’s afraid those staples would hurt.
    Or they would puncture his little puggy belly and let all the hot air out. And after all those hot wings, we all know what a disaster THAT would be.
    tee hee here

    Rose!…For dawgs sake…grunt!.. I am a tad busy diving into beer, drinking and watching bidding wars…sniff!…The deadline is not till Sunday, right? Don’t get your tiny little panties in a bundle till then…heh!heh!

    Kiya, if your are feeling intimidated by all those of the HOH, believe me: I can relate. My recent life involved being plunked down in the midst of packs and having to make my way. It took me a while, but I believe I am finally a member of a furever family. Even the lady who comes here once a week told this mom that I have changed a lot since I first arrived. She said I look so much happier and relaxed. That made my mom happy. Here is the photo she took of me last night after we had been playing ball in the house.

    The weather on my birthday has done an about face. Gone is the hot and humid. Gone are the rain and thunder. It is now sunny, clear, and very very windy. We Sibes are loving it. Momma? Not so much. She had to put on sweat pants and sweat shirt. Ha ha!
    My pack and I went out for ice cream today, to celebrate my birthday. Yummmm. Thank you all for your nice birthday wishes for me me me. I am a lucky girl.

    Panties! Are these like the panties Beau once wore on the brutal walks?

  43. Riö – The Evil Pug
    6:18 pm on July 4th, 2014

    Bloomers!…heh!heh!…Beau did indeed have a hobbled together harness which was partially made out of Grandmas Bloomers…snorkel!…He never really knew about it though. I did not have the heart to let him in on the joke…chorkel!

    Mom is tucking us all safely in the house before she heads off to her friend Gail’s house for burgers and fireworks. She lives two blocks from where they shoot off, always a good viewing site. Happy Independence Day all.

    I have worn my fair share of interesting articles including sunglasses, a crown, and even a maxi pad because I had an injury to my nethers that wouldn’t stop bleeding.

  46. BooBear
    6:40 pm on July 4th, 2014

    Tenzing, we ladies don’t talk about “those” things!!!!!

    Happy Birthday, Kat! Why did Mom think it was tomorrow? Who’s birthday is the 5th?

    Mom got outbid big time on the item she wanted. Now she has to figure out what else she wants….maybe more than 1 thing!

  47. Riö – The Evil Pug
    6:46 pm on July 4th, 2014

    BooBear!…Think of it this way, you now have all that money back from you first bid to spend on other stuff…heh!heh!

    Macy, I like your style. This family is nothing if not patriotic, which is surely why there is a chicken compound in their backyard. Bwak. Bwak !

    Walk!…I did not go. No way was I going out there with those fireworks…sniff!…Beau went and someone even came out of their house to pet him…heh!…He played it up big but then growled a little when he had had enough…sniff!…The lady had a very squeaky voice and I think this sort of got to him….chorkel!… In the past he has let her pet him before, but tonight she was especially chattie…gah!…A little squeak goes a long ways…sniff!

  62. Meashka
    10:45 pm on July 4th, 2014

    Rio! We all hid inside. I was not scarit mind you. Oh no. It is my job to protect the rest of the pack. I made sure the ‘rents stayed close by so we They would not be scarit.

    One thing about living up North. There are no fireworks during the summer months because the sky doesn’t get dark for long. We do have fireworks on Halloween, however.

    I went to the auction site and re-claimed a few items.

  64. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:18 pm on July 4th, 2014

    Boy that Mr.Carrot that LouLou has up on the Auction is a really great one. Way better than the cheapies that I got at Petsmart. grump. I (almost) wish I had a dog to buy it for.

    Well I guess I had better go to bed too. Dawson it playing it close to the chest. Probably comes from playing cards with those Thieves.

    Nighty noodle and g’day to LizF where it is cold cold cold wintertime. In Oz.

    2:39 am on July 5th, 2014

    Dawson is lucky. Alaska also lacks darkness for fireworks also but that doesn’t prevent people from buying them. I was up past midnight last night with an upset Sadie and will be up again tonight. Tomorrow I invited my nephew’s dog over for a play date with Sadie since she misses Ikette so much. [I will check on Ikette tomorrow and will re-foster him if he doesn’t get a furever home.]

    Hasta pasta
