So awhile ago I was tagged by Mollie Jo and Bobo. Of course my Mommy FORGOT all about it until she was tagged again, then she forgot AGAIN...until tonight when our new friend Scraps also tagged us..So here we go....rules...I am so breaking them...Mommy says I am being Sassy like Sasha tonight.

Open a folder that has a picture of me (DORY) and then tell the story behind it......

Here is the picture:

OK...this is a picture of me....AND BILBO???
(Sassy MAMA sneeked that OTHER picture in)
This is our first weekend in our house where I got my very OWN backyard. Before this house we lived in a house that didn't have a fence so Mommy had to take us on the LEASH everytime we had to go out, and didn't get any fun time to chase squirrels in the comfort a yard I could call mine.

Bilbo and I came to an agreement when we moved into this house...the inside was his to command but the backyard is MINE!!! We have a doggy door that is open all the time Mommy and/or Daddy is home. Some days when it is VERY HOT Mommy has to remind me to come in and get out of the sun. Yesterday is was so hot that Mommy made me come in and take a NAP! I am a grown DOGGY for goodness sakes....but Mommy said it was TOO HOT for small dogs to lay in the sun all day.... sheeesh, I would lay under a tree MOM.

Thank you so much Mollie and Bobo and Scraps for tagging me....I am now tagging anypup that wants to play!!

Hi, Dory!
I am like you. I don't have a yard but a small patio and I love to be there taking all the sun I can! And my mom says I am crazy with the hot weather we have here!
Kisses and hugs

Hi Dory, that's a cute pic... and I'm sure no squirrel will come near your territory at the backyard.

Cute pics - you are so lucky to be able to go out whenever you please. We live in the country and we still get walked on leashes - Mom doesn't want us to go hunting by ourselves.

Great pictures of you and Bilbo. We totally understand about having to walk on a leash versus having your very own backyard. Before we moved into the house we live in now, we didn't have a fenced in yard and could only got out on our leashes. But now we have a great fenced in yard where Mommy and Daddy let us run free! It's great to be free, isn't it??

Madi and Mom said...

Morning Dory,
Moms can be so protective...but they are just like that...everytime I get on my very high perch Mom says Madi don't lean over so far you'll fall. I say big deal I'm a cat I land on my feet. I think it is so nice you have a dog door. I bet you are good a chasing squirrels...they really like to tease me. They come up to my door when I'm sitting there looking out they wag their bushy rodent tails at me....I get so mad...now I'm going to tell the I know Dory so back off. Madi

Paris Rain said...

Nice to see Bilbo!
Yes we loved having a doggy door too, until MACK RUINED IT by biting a kid. Brothers!!!

pughy said...

I just love those cute pictures.. Sooo lovely.. I want a cat door but mum and dad wont let me. They only let me in my yard when they are there. Meanies..

Hugs GJ xx

You are looking quite lovely in that photo. Having a fenced yard is the best every, huh?

Thanks for stopping by.


Woodrow, Sweetie, MJ Campanella said...

we have a doggie door too its the best - but our white parts tend to get burnt in the sun so we have to be careful too - but most of the time mommy puts sunblock on us and we are all good.

happy you have a yard now - we dont know what we would do without our yard.

You are lucky to have a doggie door. I live with an escape artist so even if we had a yard-- we prolly wouldn't have one. Nice photos.


Snowy and Crystal said...

We loved your story Dory :) that is a cute pic of you Dory. We also love to be in our garden with no leash since it is fenced too
