Pictures from the weekend

Well, I finally got my mom & dad into the yard with the camera. Not an easy thing to get the both of them at the same time!

The first picture is a picture of the pig weed in my yard. Do you see any pigs? Of course not! Just a bunch of stinking green weeds hiding all my bone caches and making it difficult to find Mr. Ring when dad throws it!

The second picture is of me running guard duty along the fence line where the chows live. I can make the circuit of my side yard in under a minute.

The next picture is of my mom. She is looking over the fence at the dog that my dad had said was a pitbull. It turns out it is a boxer. She was trying to introduce herself and me to the boxer but he/she was too shy. It ran and hid. My mom said the boxer was about the size of Cairo.

The last picture is my favorite. It is me and my dad in the garden. I am trying to show him which stuff to work on next.

Someone on one the web sites about blue heeler dogs said that we live life in the fast lane. I think that describes me perfectly!

Great yard, Charlie! I sure wish I had a fenced yard. If those oinker weeds keep growing you could hide in there and make the humans have to look for you. That would be fun!

Pig weed? is bacon its flower? can you pick pork chops from it?

I'm getting dribbly...

...anyway Charlie, I know what you mean about having to show the humans what to do. It keeps us busy, doesn't it?

Chow for now,

That looks like such a fun yard, do you have a favorite spot to dig or hide things at? You could always say that pig weed tastes like chicken...humans are always saying things taste like chicken!

Isabella... I have already hidden in there. Last night my dad lost my Mr. Ring in there. We both looked and looked but couldn't find it.

Tin Tin... I wish I could pick pork chops from the weeds. I love pork chops (actually just about any meat, fowl or fish)

Ender... My favorite spot to dig is right beneath mom & dad's window and the water faucet. Dad says I am trying to make a death trap! I just like to lay beneath the window at night so that I can be cool but still be near mom & dad. I can't stay there when it rains tho cause the rain falls right into my hole. I can't say where I hide things cause mom & dad would find out and throw the bones out!

We love your yard. It makes us miss the country yard. Our country yard is big and has places with lots of overgrown weeds that we can go sniffing through. We think we would really like to be in your yard too!

Roxie, Sammy & Andy

You should work hard to make friends with the Cairo-sized boxer! Boxers are fun. I wish I had a yard like yours!
