'Bout time for an update, no?
Labor day was fun, we got to go to hu-mom's cousins' for a bar-b-que. We even got a few tasty morsels for being so good! "Riley" was there too, he's a beagle with a big mouth, and he's actually afraid of everything. Here I am minding my own business--and he's too afraid of me to get down!
Jack is such a big baby. We were tied out on our long lines in the yard, and all he did was cry & whine, till the human's couldn't stand it anymore & brought him over into the middle of where they were sitting. Then he sat down & shut up, and listened to everyone tell him how handsome he is. Geesh! He's so annoying. I jumped up & down, looked very cute, and waved my paws up in the air, making it VERY clear I wanted to join the people too, but nooo, they moved me closer but I did not get to sit in the middle of all the action. *sigh*
There were two very little girls there, and they adored us. Especially the light-haired one, she kept patting me & telling me I was a good dog.
I put up with her. Jack was a good distraction. Surprisingly, he was absolutely wonderful with the little one - she must have poked him in the face a dozen times, practically pushed her hands into his mouth, hugged him around the neck, and kept tugging on his collar the whole time while prattling on about good doggie, that's Jack...all in that human baby gibberish. There were some older kids, too. Here's "Jack and Zack" together:
I did get next to the bar-b-que for a while, and got so close to a tasty platter of creampuffs....sooooo close, but not quite! We got to lick several sticky fingers, though.
We also took a nice walk. Overall, a good day. We both slept like logs last night!
How was your Labor Day?
