A Face Only a Mommy Could Love

Jasper Here! I LOVE LOVE LOVE my mud holes! One of the best things about digging in mud holes is that Mommy almost ALWAYS comes out and throws sticks in the pond for me to chase before I go in the house! I don't know why she does that, but I don't care because I LOVE to chase sticks! Oh my gosh, mucking AND swimming - another GREAT DAY!

Walk-in Waterdish

River here. One of the BEST things about the pond is, we can get a drink WHENEVER WE WANT! I try to get drinks before Jasper starts jumping in 'cause he makes the water all muddy.

The Path

HI! River Here!

Did I ever tell you about the Path? Well when me and Jasper first moved in we saw this path going from the house to the pond. We didn't get it at first because the whole yard is grass anyways, but then the M's showed us that the path is the VERY BEST way to get to and from the pond. In fact, it is the ONLY way they go to the pond!
So now, this is the way WE go to the pond, too! You can tell this is the VERY BEST way because the path is always there. Here is our sister Mabel sitting in the path. You better not sit there too long, Mabel, or you'll get run over!

NOW We Get It - Why Ripley loves the car!

Jasper Here -
Check out these pictures we just got....Ripley went on a hiking trip WITHOUT US and it looks like she had the best time ever! She got to play in REALLY good mud - the kind that sticks to a dog's coat no matter what. We have good mud here at Camp Run-A-Lot but THAT mud looks AWESOME!
NOW we know why she likes to hang out in the car - I would not want to miss a chance to muck around like that either.
Can someone take US there? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE????

Cousin Ripley's Visit

HI! River and Jasper here!
Aunt Susan and Cousin Ripley came to visit us for 10 days, but can you believe Ripley spent almost the WHOLE TIME in Aunt Susan's CAR???!!! She didn't care if the car was outside or inside...she jumped in every chance she got and would NOT come out for ANYTHING!
Now, we like the car too but we would NOT just hang out there if it wasn't going anywhere. Especially not when there is a pond to swim in and geese to chase and mud holes to dig and grass to eat and sticks to chew, AND we get as dirty as we want and then Mommy just throws sticks in the pond so we jump in to clean off. (Do you know Aunt Susan gives Ripley real baths with SOAP??? )
PLUS, Cousin Ripley had US to play with, not to mention Mabel and Moe! FOUR other dogs plus Tundra the cat! We just don't get it. Do you get it?
Here is a picture of Ripley when our Mommy got home and Aunt Susan was leaving. Thank you Aunt Susan for taking such good care of us and giving us lots of walks and treats and nice haircuts.
