A howling good weekend
Weekends are really fabulous when we spend it lounging around. The weather was great, so Mom and Dad treated us to a hike on Saturday. We also had Marmie-bath-day later that afternoon, which was not fun. I was most unimpressed and luckily Mom was too distracted to take the dreaded bath photos. Unlike Wimsey's guardians, my parents didn't spend any time inhaling our freshly-washed smell--probably because wet hound, no matter how clean, is not a very appealing smell. We were so exhausted after the bath ordeal that we spent much of the afternoon snoozing in the sunny living room.
Our big excitement on the weekend was a runaway dog on our front lawn--she had taken off out her gate a few doors down and her Mom was having a hard time catching her. Being a little thing, she yapped and yapped, which resulted in me and Bernie howling and barking through the fence at her (which probably did not help much). Anyway, she was finally caught and stopped yapping and all was well with the world. Check out the pics of us howling--I must admit, we make pretty fierce guard-hounds.
