New Friend

Mom went over to a friend's home to help her put a crochet edging on a blanket. Her friend surprised her by inviting us to come with her. She packed us up and put us in the car and we got to enjoy a really big backyard and make friends with Otis her 13 year old Golden.

Otis and I became very good friends. He showed me his yard and he was quite the gentleman. Annie has a wonderful time running around the yard chasing squirrels, chipmunks, and other critters. She was exhausted at the end of the day. We went inside to rest a few times and Mom left our leashes on in case we decided not to behave in a stranger's home and were hard to catch. She said something about a greased pig, but I'm not sure what she could have meant by that.

However, as you can see I was taking no chances. I really like Otis and I want to be invited back again. I wasn't taking any chances of Annie getting into trouble while we were in the house. Therefore, I sat right down on her leash, literally keeping her on a short leash during our time in the house. Yes, I did this more than once. You have to keep the young ones under control.


  1. Sounds like a fun day with your new friend. Very nice of you to watch out for Annie, LOL

  2. Oh what a lovely friend!
    Good thing you were there to keep an eye on Annie 😜.

  9. Hi Katy and Annie ~ thank you for your card. Did you receive our email ...

    1. We do picture cards to mail every year and I don't scan them because I don't print the ones I receive by email. I mail to everyone in the states and only send e-cards to those outside the US.

      We all have different tastes in cards and e-cards If I can't send/get a regular hard copy card I like something fun and so I send fun ones.

      Others like the ones that look like scanned Christmas cards and they send those. That works too. Each of us does what suits us best.

  10. Very smart move! You really do all want to behave so you will be invited back. :)
