Dog Sitting

Hi everyone! This is tiny little Lily! Way back when we were still on our bloggy break, do you know our Mama left us? She left us for some other dogs! Can you believe that? 
I was so mad. Mama said she was just trying to help those other doggies, because their parents went on vacation. She came back to visit us every day for a little while, but she said she had to sleep at the house with the other doggies. They even slept in the bed with her. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT???
Mama showed us some pictures of the other doggies. Their names were Reggie and Dannyboy. They were both rescued dogs like Trixie was. Reggie came from the same animal rescue place that saved Trixie. And Dannyboy was a stray from Texas! (Dannyboy is only a puppy, even though he's waaaaaaaay bigger than me. !
Reggie and Dannyboy like to play Bitey Face, just like me and Trixie do!

Dannyboy is looking for the Kong toy.  

These two dogs love to play with the Kong! They fight over it all the time!

Dannyboy says, "I've got the Kong! Nana-nana-boo-boo!"

He has such long legs, doesn't he?

Dannyboy is posing for a portrait. 

Dannyboy almost swallows the Kong, as reggie watches.

Do you know that Reggie is part poodle, just like me? He's also part Bichon, not like me. 

 Reggie needs a rest. 

Sitting pretty! 

Now Reggie has the Kong!

"Hello? Hello? Is there anyone out there?" 

On the third day Mama said it was okay for me to come to the other house and have a sleepover. I was a little nervous because I know sometimes other dogs don't like a strange dog showing up. But Reggie and Dannyboy were so nice to me!

"Um, Dannyboy? Do you eat little dogs?"

"Should I tell him that's not even a real bone?" 

I don't know what we were looking at here. 

I wish we had an actual rawhide!

I'm a little jealous of my mama playing with the other dogs!


"Is it almost time for bed?"

 "What's so exciting about that Kong? It doesn't even squeak!"

 "I feel like someone is following me!"

 "I wish I had my squeaky ball!"

"Thanks for inviting me over, friends!"

We were all supposed to sleep in the guest bedroom at the house. Dannyboy was supposed to sleep on the floor, and Reggie and I were supposed to sleep on the bed with Mama. But Dannyboy was so upset because he wasn't allowed on the bed (His parents say he sheds too much) and he kept crying. And I couldn't sleep, so I kept jumping on and off the bed. So finally, Mama brought the bedspread out into the living room, and we all lay down together! Actually Reggie and Dannyboy wrestled half the night, until they got too tired. Mama says, when she woke up in the morning, she saw three dog noses staring at her!
Sleepovers are fun, but I am glad Mama is home now with Trixie, Sammy-Joe, and me, where she belongs.

Sammy-Joe Goes Out

Hi friends! This is Sammy-Joe! Here in Chicago, the weather is nice and warm. My doggie sisters love to go outside and play every day. They get taken outside several times a day because they need to pee and poo out there. Since I pee and poo in my litter box, and since cats can escape a yard more easily than dogs, I have to stay in most of the time. 

But when Mama bought a new harness for Lily, she thought it might actually fit on me, too! Lily and I are about the same size. Mama and Gramma put the harness on me. At first, I didn't want anything to do with it. I was like, "What is this contraption? Get me out of here!" I thought it would be just like all those times they stuffed me in a box and took me to the vet! Plus, the whole thing smelled like Lily. And you know me and Lily don't get along so well, right? Why would I want to put on something that makes me stink like my yucky sister?

Then Mama carried me outside to the yard. She put me down. And I got to walk around and explore the yard, just like my sisters! The doggies were very nice and gave me space. Mama took some pictures of me relaxing outside. Want to see them?

Here I am playing in the garden. What is on the other side of this fence?

Yum yum, tasty plants!

 I am watching bugs crawl around on the ground. 

You can barely see me here, but I am trying to crawl under the grill! 

 It is fun to get all full of dirt, isn't it? 

Here is Lily giving me my space. I kinda wish she'd give me more space than that... but at least she isn't barking at me!  

Mama says she'll take me outside for a while every day, if I'll let her put the harness on me! I think this is going to be a great summer!
