Happy Independence Day!

Today we celebrate Independence Day in the USA!  So we're going to share the photos from when we went to the parade last year.  

Unless it is too hot we're going to the parade today again.  It is supposed to be about 98 degrees (37C) for a high.  Mom said if it is cloudy that we could go again to help! 

 The thing we would help with is passing out flyers about the Dog park!

 Mom had her meeting with the mayor yesterday.  On Tuesday, at the City Council Meeting, the mayor will formally establish the Dog Park Committee with mom as the chairperson!

The only bad thing is that we had to change our play date to Thursday.  Hailey and Phod guessed correctly that our play date was with Fi and Abby (just Abby actually cuz Fi had surgicals done so she is recuperating).

Don't worry Ruby, I won't forget you or your spiky ball.  Me and Abby are just furiends so we won't kiss or nothing like that, but I might need to sniff her butt,  Butt if I do, I will just do a real fast furiend-to-furiend sniff.

We hope all our friends and furiends have a wonderful day today!  Please be mindful that many doggies are scared of fireworks and protect them from the noise.  (Me and Stanley aren't scared of fireworks but mom says that is very unusual.)

Hi Murphy and Stanley!
Happy Independence Day! I love your 4th of July parade from last year, you look so cute with your patriotic red, white and blue stars and stripes matching bandannas, god bless American Doodles! I think you guys need to be under the dinner table where all of the delicious foodables and the action is! I cant believe that you both don't mind fireworks, I am not scared of them but I do bark at them a lot! Love and licks from your furiend Frank xxxxxxxxx

Hi hi hi! Ojo here! Happy Independence Day! Did you get to go to the parade again? Was there bacon?

KB Bear said...

I love your parade photos, and I'm so happy that your mom is making progress on the dog park! I'm glad you're not afraid of firecrackers. Our dogs aren't either... even though Shyla is afraid of so many other things. Happy Fourth!

Awesome parade pics! two should consider a career in modeling as you NEVER take a bad picture! Congrats on the dog park...great news! Abby is probably going CRAZY if Fiona,is not able to play. Have you seen the frisbee antics of those two? They are crazy good! Hope you and your family have a great weekend!

Reply to your question:
MOL MOL Doods what is a few pounds between friends! I'm happy to say at my last weight check I weighed 10.75 lbs!! I have my Senior Kitty Annual on 7/18...I hope I'm still at least under 11 lb. According to my Vet that is my ideal weight. FYI: I'm really very furry too
Hugs madi your bfff

We had a fun 4th, no fireworks nearby to scare the pups. Lily was here with Hunter and they had a great time. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

I hope you had a great independence day and your friend Fi is on the mend soon :o)

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Not to worry, Ruby, I can speak for my sister in saying that Abby has her tail in a floof for Lacie Bobeastie's brother Scruffy, so it will be 'just friends' all around! And Abby is looking forward to the play date - Abby went and tested out the pond today just to make sure it will be okay for you guys!
