Summer Vacation








We are going to take some time to relax and unplug (maybe semi unplug). Mama says we is going to pop every now and then to check on efurrybody PLUS she is going to do a bloggie "revamp" when she is on break from school.



We will be back in September with Vampire Puppy (and Kitty) Friday!!

Happy Flower Friday

Just a quick Flower Friday before I head over to Luna's for the big Slumber Pawty tonight!
Hope we see you there!!



Anyway...here are some pretty flowers that Mama took pictures of this week!!


Pretty Red Bugle like flower.....




This is a humongous Aloe plant in our neighborhood!




Pretty Orange and Yellow Day Lilies....Mama thinks..




Mama's favorite Lantana color combo...




Pretty Purple...Hydrangea maybe???
Pretty pink flower with a scary red ant on it!!

Mama really loves these...does any puppy or puppy/kitty Mama know what they are???
They grow kinda bushy.

Mama planted a couple of new flower pots with 
"Sunpatiens" they are impatiens that can thrive in the Texas summer sun.
They are pretty and.....
they are very photogenic colorful!!
Bet we see lots of pictures of these for the rest of the summer!!


With summer here...and Mama stuck in that four letter math class (ok...maybe 7 letters, it's the nickname that has four letters) we are going to be pretty busy for the next few weeks but are going to try reallly hard to get Mama to keep us up to date with what is going on with everybody and get at least couple of posts up a week!!

Saturday Trip to the Farmer's Market


On Saturday morning Mama got up early,  Daddy was teaching scuber diving at the lake and she said we could have special Mama/Dory time!! Then said my two most favorite words...

BYE BYE!!!!

 
Mama put on my harness...buckled me up for safety and we were off!
 First, for some Go Go Juice for Mama..

.

We saw this cutey in front of us ordering a nommy drink!!

 Mama said it was a bit too early for a  frap tho...Mean ole Mama!!


  It was a very very VERY hazy day here in Austin and HOT and HUMID too!!


This is where we went!!!

We met lots of new friends...Lots of doggies bring their people to the Farmer's Market!



This is my newest best friend....she runs the Happy Tails Cafe where they make cookies and other nommies!! Mama got a couple of bags of the nommies for ummm...OH...never mind. Mama says I can't tell.

Do any of you visit Farmer's Markets where you live???

Almost ...All About my People Day


Today my good friend Oskar is hosting an All About your People Day!!
So, we for SURE wanted to tell you all about Mama and Daddy!



Mr. Peabody says that every dog should have a boy...Well we think he got it mostly right...every dog must have a human for sure and we are so very lucky to have not one but TWO humans...the Mama AND the Daddy!

Mama and Daddy were born in the dark ages but didn't meet until olden times...in 1999, before we were even glimmers in our doggy mama's eyes! They were married in 2001 and are looking forward to celebrating 10 years (older than even Bilbo) next March.



Daddy is an  IT manager for a financial institution here in Austin. He works very, very hard and we always make sure to meet him at the door when he gets home every day. When he is not working at work, he likes to teach Scuber Divin classes. A bunch of weekends in the summer he can be found at my lake teaching people how to breathe under water...We don't understand the whole WANTING to get wet thing...but he says something about no computers or cell phones under water. He grew up and went to college in the midwest.


Mama was born in SoCal....and ended up in New Jersey where she lived FOREVER until
she came to Texas for a job in 1998. She loves the water and Austin is the farthest she has ever lived from an ocean. Mama is a full time Puppy Mama right now and is going to school part time. She is looking for a new job, but we are doing a good job of diverting the offers from coming in! Mama also loves scuber diving, but would rather do it where the water is blue and warm. She does get in the lake every now and then though..again, something about peace and quiet and no puppies (what's with that?)

Mama also LOVES her camera...sometimes we think she loves it more than us! Then we realize that is just impossible...we are warm and cuddly and the camera is NOT. Not to mention that without us...what would she take pictures of....

ok, BESIDES flowers!!

Mama and Daddy also like to travel to Lost Wages a BUNCH...Mama likes the food and the pools.
Daddy likes that he can get away and let his hair down....
We do NOT like Lost Wages...mainly cause we can't go!!

OK...Enough about Mama...here is the REAL big news of the day....
OUR NEW PACK NAME IS......


That's right...The Tree Dogketeers!!!

Congrats hero!!! If you could email us your snail mail address to beth at ebchristians dot com

Also is Booker Man and Dennis can also get us their snail mail addresses we have goodies for you too!!
