Odds & Ends

Today mom met a friend for coffee at Starbucks in the morning (without me!) and when she came home saw this in the mailbox:

I had received a postcard from Devon, England from my boyfriend, Wiggle! He was on holiday with his human and his sister, Sofy, on the Devon coast last weekend and had many adventures and ate lots of nommy food (we Labs are VERY interested in food). My mailman Rich thoughtfully added a doggie treat to my postcard (thank you, Mailman Rich!) Here I am coming over to inspect my postcard with Spidey in my mouth:

Shadow the cat seemed uninterested as there was nothing for him
in the mail so therefore gave us "the back"
I have also been playing with my kong on a rope in the backyard this week - here I am running really fast; leaning into the curve just like a racing pony!
Giving mom the "Play with me" stare: I am a happy girl!

The Dog Days of August

The hot summer weather has finally arrived in Seattle so we have been enjoying it. Mom replaced my old, broken pool with an inflatable model which so far hasn't sprung a leak despite my enthusiastic playing. Here I am taking my very first leap into it with my floating Kong:
Splashing! Shaking! Playing!
Staring at my floating Kong, daring it to move...
Then grabbing my floating Kong!
I love my pool!!!!! (and mom too, of course!)
Meanwhile, Shadow the cat prefers to spend the hot days laying about the house. Here he is catching the breeze from the opened front door:
Here is Slinky, all stretched out (you know it's hot when Slinky stretches out thin) on MY blankie at the foot of the bed. I guess I could let him sleep there... For now, BOL
