Caught in the act...and what a "ham" Pockets was!

Hi everydog! I, Poppy was caught in the act of trying to take a smooshed basketball stuffie out to the back yard. I was trying to look innocent...really, Mom, I was just bringing it to the door so it could get some fresh air! Somehow, I don't think she was buying that! Believe it or not, that basketball is about 2 or 3 years old and it still has all of it's stuffing. There aren't even any holes in it. Sometimes, I like to lay on the floor with all my teefies wrapped around it and make very strange Aire-noises, just like I do with the white bear.

Our mom was looking through some old pictures and remembering what a "ham" Pockets was for the camera. She really knew how to "work" it! No matter what she was told to do for the camera, she did it. Too bad Penny and I aren't that cooperative! I get too excited and Penny is just plain afraid of the camera. Mom needs to get one of those stealth cameras that deer hunters use in the woods. Of course, then she could spy on us when she isn't home. Mom just loves these pictures of Pockets. She even has this picture as a screen saver on the computer at home AND at work. Maybe, when she gets her new camera, she can get some of us that are really good. I doubt it...but, maybe!

This morning, when it was only about 36 degrees, our mom tried to kill herself by transplanting a Camelia bush and a Wisteria plant. Our dad has put a wood burning stove in his workshop in the basement and Mom was afraid the smoke stack would kill the Camelia and the Wisteria. She is worried about them surviving since this is certainly not the time of year to be transplanting stuff. However, this way at least they will have a CHANCE of surviving. There would be no chance where they were before. We tried to help her, but for some reason, she was having a hard time keeping us out of the red Georgia clay so we had to be sent back in the house. So not fair...we were only trying to help!

For some reason, stupid blogger wouldn't download those 3 blank photos at the top! And Mom can't figure out how to delete them.

Stuffies - backyard???

Isn't that where everyone keeps a couple stuffies stashed???

Pockets - looks to be a professional - VERY VERY pretty.

We've got that same red hard clay in our yard too.....

We don't care much for the stalkarotz either just keep hoping the batteries die in the camera.....

Pockets is such a great name for a dale or any dog. Do all your dogs names have to start with P or is it a coincidence?

Hugs and tail wags
