Eclipse Day

Today was our eclipse day.  We had 92% here.  

While mom and dad were staring at the sun me and Stanley were resting cuz . . . 

This morning when they were getting ready to go for a run Stanley kept shouting "Woo, woo, woo, woo!"  He usually only does his woo-woos one-time through to say "Good morning" but today he said it 87 times!

So mom and dad grabbed our leashes and took us on the 7-mile route.  That's a mile longer than our regular route!  Mom said we did great!

After our run we took a shortcut and did a little bit of hiking.

Then we walked about another half mile to get home.  That's how our family rolls!

The wheelie house is locked & loaded!  One more sleep!

Resting & Waiting

Sorry we haven't been around too much.  BUTT the truth is we're going to be around MUCH less in the next few weeks.

Me and Stanley are heading out of town!  Yup - on vacation!  

We're going to see Blogville Mayor Arty and his brother Jakey.  We're also going to see Hailey & Phod's pawrents (AKA K10 & Sam).  And that isn't all! We're also going to see Wyatt, Tegan, Wyatt's brother and all his cousins!!!

We're gonna have FUN, FUN, FUN!  And guess what?  That isn't all either!

We're also going to hike a piece (a little piece) of the PCT!  Yup, the one and only Pacific Crest Trail!  Mom says we might even run into Reese Witherspoon!

We're gonna play on the beach and swim in the ocean!  We're gonna see waterfalls and a rain forest!

And we'll be doing something else too!  We're gonna meet one of our Blogville pals from across the pond!  Yup, across the BIG pond! Can you believe it???  

Can you guess who it is??

So in the meantime we're gonna get all rested up.  Our pawrents nearly have the little wheelie house packed with all our treats and kibble.

This is so exciting!

I was doing my daily chores when Stanley barked to me that a package had arrived!

I came running right away since he said it was a box from Chewy!

We knew Chewy said they were sending out a prize box to everyone who pawticipated in last month's contest.  We wondered what it could be!

Thanks #Chewy! BTW, those are the coolest bubbles ever - peanut butter flavored!  We will do a post on them later!

OMD! You will NOT believe where we went last night!  We went to the county fair!  Mom said it was a good place to practice our crowd and noise exposures.  And we did PAWFECT!  

Here we are practicing our DOWN-STAY.

Mom wasn't able to get pictures cuz of all the people and activity but we got to go to the animal barns where we bumped noses with sheep!  Yes we did! We sniffed all kinds of animals AND their poops!  It was a blast!

We loved the fair!

Today we got up before the sun came over the mountain and we went for our 6 mile run.  In case you are wondering why we only get to go on 1 run per week it's cuz mom lies and says we stop too much.

Sometimes a fella has to poop and I know dad likes to carry the bag of poops when we run.

Everybody stop! I see a cat!

OK, Let's go! Oh wait, Murphy is still sniffing.

Pee break!

Oops, gotta pee again!

OK, let's go!

Stop! Murphy has to sniff!

Ut oh - STOP NOW!

It was cloudy.

Stop! Murphy's thirsty!

Stop! Stanley has to pee!

Murphy has to sign his name too!

OK, ready - let's go!

Stop! Gotta check impawtent pee mail!

Stop! Another pee mail hydrant!  (In case you're wondering about all the layers of paint, the local scouts earn their Eagle Scout badges by painting hydrants.  Mom says it sounds like a way too easy project.)

OK - back at it . . . almost done!

OK, now we're pooped!

Murphy & Stanley

Pee Ess - The reason we have comment moderation turned on is cuz some creep keeps copying YOUR comments then adding a Korean Porn link to it.  We also changed it to the comment window.  If this does not help we will be forced to turn on word verification but we hate that so hope we aren't forced into it.

Bored Once Again

We are bored again.  The weather has cooled off for a few days (but only a few) and we have been going on more walkies but right now we are bored.

Mom says "Do something interesting!" and points her cell phone at us.  We think she needs to take us someplace interesting and that the pressure shouldn't be on us!

Even our stuffies are bored!  Jimmy went downstairs where all the stuffies live cuz mom wants to see if I get him to come up the stairs.

And now to make matters worse we just found out our pawrents are going to run errands - without us!

So we're protesting!  Look into my eyes mom!

So far it isn't working.  We can't wait for vacation later this month!

Stanley has a staring contest all the time with a neighborhood cat.  It's a matter of who blinks first (usually Stanley).

Pee Ess - For clarification, it was NOT 96° degrees when we went running yesterday, that was the forecasted high temperature for the day.  It was 72° when we went, in the early morning before the sun came up.
