We Got a Package!

Hey, Look what we got! A PACKAGE!

Jasper here. Our foster brother Luke sent us a package! Tennis balls and cookies with frosting and lollipups! Luke is the best. He was the resident dog at our foster home in Ohio and we miss him. He tried to teach me some doggie manners but I was young and wild then and even now I think manners are overrated. But other than that he was a great big brother and he is still nice to us! Sometimes he comes here to camp Run-a-Lot to play! His dog mom and dad are the BEST EVER. They foster other dogs for GRIN and even adopt some of them! Plus they do other stuff like organize things for the GRIN dogs. We miss them lots and hope they come and visit us soon. You should check out GRIN cause they have 9 brand new puppies plus lot of other golden-ish dogs to adopt and if you want to have fun like we do, you might need to adopt a dog. Just make sure they have tennis balls to chew on and lots of dog treats! www.grinrescue.org

Doggie Hangover

River here to tell you I am NEVER EVER eating deer intestines again, well, at least not until the next chance I get. Whew. Rough night. Here I am, first to admit, all hungover from yesterday's overindulgence!

It was kind of worth it though. Susan and Randy took me, Ripley, and Jasper snowshoeing yesterday afternoon. It was 5:00 pm - right around happy hour - and I stopped by a deer carcass that they didn't even see. I ate as MUCH as I could before Susan came looking for me, and that was like "last call"...even though I had already had too much, I thought I better get one for the road, as they say:

Well Aunt Susan and even RANDY thought this was disgusting but I wanted to keep it. Just a little section of intestine to go... I held on tight but finally the snowballs in my paws were the size of softballs so I stopped to get the snow out and had to drop it and Randy got the intestine away. Mommy says thank goodness, because that probably smelled horrible...but I thought it would get even tastier in a day or so. Maybe it was just as well. I guess I really did overdo it because I spent the night and next morning barfing up deer innards (5 times) and boy, did I feel horrible all day. Yup, I felt bad. And Mommy and Daddy were not exactly happy with me.

Now I've got to say, one REALLY bad part of ANY hangover is when you have to be with someone who is all chipper and NOT hungover! That would be Jasper. HE got to go snowshoeing AGAIN today with Mommy while she left ME home in the mud room (in case I had to, you know, be sick again.) Here is Mr. Goody Two-Shoes on his snowshoe outing today. And like I said, I'm never eating deer again...until next time!

We Want More Snow!

Jasper here to tell you we wish it would SNOW so we can go snowshoeing again! We had tons of snow and it was PERFECT until a couple of weeks ago it rained and made a crust and when we tried to walk on the snow we fell through and Mommy said something about not paying for doggy knee and hip surgery...so she would not take us out snowshoeing!
PLUS the driveway was so icy that every morning Mommy and Daddy loaded up me, Riv, Mabel and Moe and drove us to the end of the driveway to start our walk! That was kind of fun 'cause we got a car ride AND a walk! THEN it was WARM for a couple of days and I got thinking about the pond and my mudholes...but today it got freezing cold and super windy so I guess I will have to wait. Maybe March will be swimming weather. Here is a picture of me and River outside today. See, it's not fun snow except for ROLLING in and I do like to roll in the snow. So does River! We only stay out for 5 or 7 minutes then come back inside to wrestle and play tug and "ball in the hall", and Mommy says we have cabin fever but I don't think I have a fever! I just want it to snow!
