Our Week in the Country

Hi ta everyone....

We just got home after more than a week at the cottage and we always have a lot ta do there. More than anything we just love all the room we have ta run and play.
We always have ta have covers over the furniture cause we come right in from outside wet, dirty or both and get right up on it.

I got Gram ta take a lot of video so ya can see what we do there. There is one of us playing ball with crab apples, my Mom curlin' up in a little pan, of us swimmin' and of us playin' with some new stuffed snakes that Gram bought us. Then there's a slideshow of stills Gram took of us too.

We hope ya have the time ta see 'em all and that ya enjoy 'em.....

We sure had a good time makin' 'em....

First, we wanted ta show ya a bit of the pretty things up here and us playin' in our pool. 'N if ya wanted ta find out how Mom gets inta those a little pans...here it is...


Here we are up at our Uncle Donny's place playin' ball with crab apples. And we got some special toys ta play with too....



And then Gram made a slideshow of us doin' lots of stuff while we were there..sit back 'n have a look.....



Don't know how ya all get video uploaded ta Blogger....we never could...sometimes we can get it uploaded ta Google video but then the code produces nothin' on the blog but a black screen. So this time after hours trying every which way, we put it on YouTube....hope the code works......

Now we're back home after our stay in the woods....we'll be back again fer another visit later in the month....boy, we sure love it there....hope ya all had the chance ta have some fun too......

We're all waitin' fer some news on Jackson's tests taday...boy, sure hope that dogstar was bright enough......

This is Dewey Dewster reportin' on fun at the cottage.....

Dewey, you nearly outshone the dogstar with that post and those lovely videos and the slide show. I loved them all, your slideshows really make me chuckle! If ever me or Mom feel sad we will wag over and watch you three play - and especially watch your Mom curl up in the water bowl! Mom has promised to get me one to see if I do the same. How is Asta Marie - is she over Petey yet?

Good to see you back. Keep barking..

Wags, Eric x

Hi Dewey,

I am happy to see the three of you back. The videos are great.

The butterflies...you've got so many of them! They looked lovely...but not as lovely as your mom when she curled into that bowl. I don't know how she does it. A. I am a bit bigger, and my bowl is a bit smaller - so there's no way for me to fit into my bowl and B. I don't like water! But you and Asta Marie, and Toby looked like you enjoyed yourselves thoroughly.

I saw the three of you running after those apples...that was wonderful. I guess Toby is the fastest runner of the three...am I right?

The slideshow and the snake-video were too cool! I don't know how the snake survived the ordeal! I think your mom tried to control your wild-behavior...didn't she?

Thanks a ton for sharing the videos:) Mercury says that they inspire her (to do what? I don't know...she won't tell - but I hope that she isn't inspired to get a big bowl of water...)

Licks n Wags,

My doggie mom won't even go near water! She hates it and I love it. I'm so impressed with your mom getting in that pan of water.
I don't even think I could fit in such a small pan...

Sure wish I could be at that Earthdog test you're going to but Mom entered me in a local agility trials that weekend. Bummer! Be sure and get a lot of pictures for us to see!

At first we didn't think those butterflies were real it was so pretty!! mom sure doesnt leave much room for drinking in that water bowl for you guys!!

your pap can throw those apples FAR! My mom is a wuss and cant throw that far at all!

Thanks for sharing the videos and pictures, everything looked great except the bath part. I mean who really does have laundry tubs at their cabins?? hehe!

Jackson said...

Hey pals, those were pawsome videos and a slideshow! I loved seeing you all run together. Asta Marie certainly shows you who's boss, hehehe! The water bowl stuff was so funny. Mine isn't big enough for me to sit inside, but I wouldn't even if I could!! J x

Agatha and Archie said...

Well if we had to vote who has had the greatest summer sofar it has to be you guys!!! This place looks like HEAVEN to us!!!!!!!Archie is a little sad seeing you run because he LOVES to run and still hasn't gotten the all clear to do so (because of his treatment for his back...) so we live through you!!!! Now when PL2 saw your Mom actually go into the bowl she was laughing so hard she got the hiccups!!!! Archie is wondering if a ceral bowl would work.....THREE MORE DAYS!!!!!!!(fro the RAT CONTEST......) Love A+A

Abby said...

Hi, Dewey...

What great videos & slide show...Looks like you had a great time...

Abby xxxooo

Petey said...

Boy, you three can really run after those apples! Are you entered in a relay race in the Pawlimpics? My money's on you.

And Dewey, you must really love your Mom alot - as the old saying goes..."so much so you drank a tub of her bathwater!"

Your pal,

Petey

Maggie and Mitch said...

We loved ALL of the videos! We laughed ourselves silly when your mom plunked herself down in the tub of water and wouldn't share! hehehehe
We can tell you guys had the GREATEST time!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Lorenza said...

Hi, Dewey!
Thanks for sharing those videos! Sure you all had a great week... until those baths, right?
Your mom really enjoys getting into the water bowl.. and sounds she does not like interruptions!
My mom has tried to upload videos with Blogger but it does not work for us either!
Kisses and hugs
Lorenza

Hi Guys!

I loved your videos and watching you have so much fun. I wish I could join you! You guys have it made.

It was neat seeing how Asta Marie gets into the water dish and stays there. Looks like she likes to hog all the water. Also looks like Toby doesn't get much respect. After all, he still is a relative?newcomer.

Don't you think that baths up at the cottage are a waste of time? You'll just get dirty again the next day. It seems so counterproductive. If they at least waited for the last day to give you baths, then you'd be clean for the ride home and nobody would care how good you smelled. Hehe!

Great job on the videos guys! Loved them.

Koobuss Kisses for Everybody,
Koobie

Hi Dewey,

About the rainbow bridge...

Here's a frank submission - I didn't know about the rainbow bridge (and that such a wonderful place exists) before I met all other doggies in the cyberworld. But now that you've described the place, I think I'd rather have such a place to go to in my afterlife:)

The cloning story raised my hackles and so I had to post...

To change the topic...
Which events are you participating in, in the Pawlimpics? "At Work" is being organized on August 19 (the only event in which I participated, thanks to certain people!) I will be visiting Lenny's blog daily though - all the best to you!

Licks n wags,

Hi Dewey,

Thanks...I think it makes the whole thing a lot easier - I wouldn't want to lose Mercury and Cameo ever!

Those entries sound very interesting:) I sent in three pictures of me at work - bringing the newspaper, the snack-basket, and my bowl...that's all!

Licks n wags,

Asta said...

Asta Marie,

We loved seeing you all curled up in that bowl!!! You desrve the award, just for looking so inventive.

And we are so thrilled about Jackson getting through his surgery ok, that now we can breathe again!!

Is it too late for you to join me tonight at the Cardinals-Marlins game? If so, there's tomorrow night. It's a good thing we didn't go last night though 'cause the game was stopped for rain -- although you might have enjoyed curling up inside a player's batting helmet!!

One more thing, in the interest of full disclosure -- before you and I first barked at each other, I had written to Princess Willow, of the Zoo Crew, to see if Just Harry and I could be her fellows, because we had fallen in love with her puppy face. She never answered until now, and, as you can imagine, I'm a bit embarrassed, since you and I have just gotten to know each other and I'm not a Don Jake kind of guy.

Just Harry is kind of happy about this, because he wasn't so keen on sharing anyway and is very eager to go out with Princess Willow all by himself.

Hoping you'll understand...

Jake
