We're baaaaaack!

Lots of things have changed since our last post - over a whole month ago. (Can somedog please lick the egg of my incredibly handsome and slightly wrinkled face? Thanks!) My mama and pop have broken up just shy of 8 years together, and Patches and I are now living in another city with our mama. Of course we have been giving my mama lots of loving, in between barking at new sights and sounds!

We also found out that we are only .7 miles from the river! So - our walk has included sightseeing (and leaf peeping) along the waterfront.

I contemplated jumping into the water, but decided to sit and stay as told...the water is looking pretty cold, and I just had a bath.

Sparky! Glad you are back. Sorry about your mom and dad, though. You have to make sure to take extra good care of mom. How are you holding up? Maybe you should go to Eric's halloween party to give yourself a break.

Glad to see you're back, my man. Same thing happened with my folks...but it all worked out for me & looks like it's gonna work out just fine for you too...

I'm sorry, too, to hear about your mom and dad. Sometimes life is hard. I know you're taking good care of her, though, and she sure found a beautiful place for you to live!

Riley the Puggle said...

Wow, you look pretty awesome in that picture! Good self restraint on not jumping in, i'm sure your mom would have had quite a time pulling you out of there.

Take good care of her!

These two just keep getting cuter and cuter!

(LoL...I'm the only "human" post here! Gotta get Murphy & DoDoBird their own blog, I guess!)
