Dad's Birthday Present

We were supposed to get back to posting last week, but Mom got involved with the local library book sale and she got behind with all her blogging. Can you imagine putting the library before our blog?

The last time we blogged we said Grandma made a special present for us for Dad's birthday. You might have noticed we have a bit of a love of fleece. Mama's Aunt made Bailey a Patriot's blanket of his own before Katy came into the family. Mama is not so good with a sewing machine. She claims they have it in for her. Grandma came to the rescue so the Patriot's blankie could be rested. It gets a periodic washing, but unlike Dad's sport fleece that get's rotated with the sports seasons, the Patriot's blankie has not had a break in a LONG time. Dad told Mama the Joann's has fleece on sale. Grandma told Mama if she could find the rest of the Boston sports teams in fleece she'd make our blankies. For that it might be worth letting the parents leave the house.

We are still working out the details of who gets to use which blanket, when, but we technically each have our own Red Sox blanket to rest on while watching them play.

Paws in the Park

As rescue dogs we love to promote events for other dogs in need of a new home. Save a Dog is hosting Paws in the Park at the Wayside Inn in Sudbury, Massachusetts on Sunday May 5 from 10-3. The cost is $10 for adults and children 12 and older. Those 11 and under are charged $5. Registration for the one-mile walk starts at 10 AM. The walk begins at 11 AM. There are all kinds of vendors, doggie games, food, and more. Check out the event website here.

Mom was all excited about going to this event two years ago and then she got sick. Somehow, she missed it last year. This year we are determined to be there.

Checking out the Tractor

Dad got help from a friend to do some yard repair this weekend. With all the snow, we have had some erosion, so we needed to fill in some holes and fill in some gaps under the fence. Dad's friend brought over his mini-tractor to help with the work.

Katy was too afraid to check out the tractor. After he was done working and the machine was shut off, I got curious. At first, I sat on the floor with Dad's friend sat on the seat. That was fun, but the view wasn't great. Also, Mom does not like to post other people's photographs on the blog if they aren't comfortable with that idea. Therefore, he let me sit on the seat so I could have a picture she could post.

It was fun helping Dad and his friend do the yard repairs. The snow is almost gone and Mom and Dad will be back to gardening. Katy and I will have to do snake patrol. While Dad was working yesterday, Katy and I were already checking out their favorite spots. Mom says it is still too cold for them, but we want to be prepared.

We have been so lucky

Last month we were one of six winnners in Dakota's Den Kong Premium Treats Giveaway which just arrived this week. (Katy has been have a little tummy problem so we have had the chance to try them out yet.) We are so looking forward to having some.

Then yesterday we discovered we were one of three winners in Dakota's Petcakes giveaway. We are so thrilled!!!

Thank you Dakota. Katy should be able to try out the Kong treats this weekend and we can't wait for the Petcakes to arrive after seeing the pictures of the ones your Mom made you.

Easter Bunny Picture

As promised we got our Easter Bunny picture in the mail on Saturday, so Mom agreed to post it today. Isn't it interesting that the high tops the bunny was wearing were cropped out?

Mom is considering having some professional photographs done by Fred Levy's studio. We've had Christmas and now Easter photographs done at fun shoots. He's thinking about doing private animal shots and while we are not crazy about pictures, he does seem to catch us in a good light.
