This Week in My Backyard

Summer is definitely here in Texas. Time to wear my hat, sunscreen and drink tons of water so I can spend lots of time in my backyard!

 This week Jacob shows us how high he can jump....

More teenage birds beg for food...

 and of course we are still trying to catch you -know-who...

Here is our slide show (with bonus video footage):

Don't forget to hop around today as part of the Saturday Pet Blogger Hop hosted by Life with Dogs, Baby Patches and the The Two Little Cavaliers.

Oh, it'll be a great week the week one of us catches that squirrel!


Mango said...

Miss Dory,
You certainly have a lot of hats. They all looks kind of big on your wee self.

I say give up on the squirrels. Maybe if you ignore them they will lose interest. Besides, it is too hot to be running about.


Molly's Mom said...

Love Mollys Mom

Hi, Dory - just hopping through. You are SO cute! Now, you just leave that squirrel alone. He's probably a lot meaner than you!

Hi, Dory!
You had a very nice week!

Marg said...

Great shots. We sure hope one day you will catch that squirrel but I am betting that the squirrel is pretty darn fast. The hat is terrific.
Have a great day.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

I heard that your mom forgot to submit your cute hat picture, tsk! tsk!
You wear sunscreen? That explains the differences between boy and girl!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Very impressive, Jacob! But don't jump too high or the squirrels might catch you and hold you for ransom!

hero said...

You are training Jacob well on the job, Dory... and you look gorgeous with the hat on :)

Licks, hero

Bijou said...

You sure have alot going on in your backyard. We get no birds here cause Banjo chases them all away and the squirrels stay up in the neighbors tree so we never get a chance to chase them. Jacob sure can jump high! Dory you look real cute in your hat. Summer is here too!


Rebecca and Daisy Mae said...

Jacob can jump! You will get you-know-who someday Jacob.

Mack said...

THat squirrel looked like he was giving you the evil eye!

BRUTUS said...

WOW, Jacob! Are you sure there wans't a trampoline below you, just out of the photo? Maybe mom should try agility with you, since it seems you have springs for legs! That squirrel better beware! Oh, and very nice hat, Dory!

Sue said...

You look so cute in your sun bonnet. We hope you get to catch that squirrel. We caught one a couple weeks ago and it was very satisfying.

Sierra Rose said...

Fun times in your backyard Dory!! :) Love your hat, and sunscreen!!?? What brand do you recommend? Mom's got #90 for her...what should I wear??

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

ocmist said...

Jacob must have some awesome gluts there to have the power to spring up THAT far! The squirrel had better not let his tail hang down, that's for sure! Good reminder about how to stay safe in the summer heat, too! Have a great week, Dory, Bilbo, Jacob and Parents!
