Hello to all our furry and not-so furry friends! We were having a great day, today, until it started to rain. Mom was trimming the ivy out by the lattice wall that hides the trash barrel and we were snoopervising. We barked everytime someone walked down the street to let Mom know she might be in danger! You never know what kind of crazies might be walking around. We thought she'd want to know!
Remember all the mud we had on our deck a few days ago? Well, most of it is gone now. Yep, our mom couldn't take it any longer so she cleaned it up. Since the deck is on the back of the house, she figured she could wash it without being caught by the water police! We are on very tight water restrictions, here in Georgia, and Mom doesn't want to have to pay a huge fine or go to jail! We aren't allowed to wash cars, water grass or wash houses or driveways. Mom gets very upset because it's okay if she hires someone else to wash the house or the driveway, but she can't do it herself. Somehow that seems unfair since whoever she hires will be using OUR water! What the heck difference does it make whether we use our OWN water or if someone else does. Mom thinks she has that problem solved...she works for a painting contractor, so the next time she wants to wash the driveway, she is going to put one of his signs in the front yard so the water police will leave her alone!
See my buddy, Tiger? Well, for some reason that I can't explain, he keeps trying to go outside! In the last couple of days, Mom and Dad have found him just inside the back door several times! He keeps inching closer to the door, but hasn't quite made it to the back yard, yet! I think he just wants some fresh air! Maybe he needs to pottie! Or maybe, he's trying to escape from me humping him so often! Mom brought him back into the living room and took his picture to show me where he really belongs. I get the picture, Mom, but Tiger keeps telling me to take him outside! At least, once he finally makes it out there, if he gets dirty, it will blend right in with most of his coloring! He's just about the same color as our red Georgia clay!
Well, everybody, now that it's raining outside, we are going to go have a nap until it's time for us to eat.
