This has been a busy time and I think it will continue for the next month or so. We have so much going on with my B&B, Mom’s birthday is coming up, I’m trying to finish up my book, and all the other stuff I usually do like wabbit and squirrel hunting.
My friend Buddy spent 10 days over the Fourth of July with us. We always have a great time with the little fellow! As a surprise, cousin Lena ended up spending the long holiday weekend with us, so I had 2 dogs at my B&B! We had so much fun together, but by Sunday we were four dead dogs! We taught Mom how to walk four dogs at one time. She did really well except for the first block or two every walk when we all needed to “use the WC”. This is the best photo she could get since she needed long leashes to get us in the pic and she could only hold 3 flexi leashes in one hand, and she needed the other hand to take a pic. I will have more on my B&B guests on my Mischief Monday post.
I won a Frosty Paws backpack set from my friends at 2 Brown Dawgs! Thanks friends, I love it and so does Mom! I wasn’t expecting too much, but was looking forward to the Frosty Paws ice cream. The backpack arrived and Mom and I were amazed! What a great thing, an insulated backpack – super cool! There is a water bottle, a water bowl that folds into a zipper pouch, a box you can freeze and use to keep things cool, bone shaped poop bag dispenser, and a coupon for free Frosty Paws. Mom wanted to get the Frosty Paws when my friends were here – four dogs, four ice cream treats, but she came home from the store with devastating news! Can you believe our entire area was sold out of Frosty Paws!!! I almost dialed 911! Mom checked the stores that usually carry Frosty Paws and they were all out. They also checked other area stores and all were out! Sorry, no photos of us eating Frosty Paws, just me and my cool backpack and supplies.
Another surprise was winning a $25 gift certificate for Elk Antlers from Dachshund Nola. We have never had antlers and being rather expense we never thought to try them. Using my gift card, I ordered up a couple for my sister Katie and I. They arrived in a few days’ time and we tried them out. I was so excited I tried to eat the package! I will post a review on how those antlers faired on Tasty Tuesday.
My sister is getting her moment of fame in Two Pear Design’s Inspire magazine this month. Karin Newstrom Photography submitted one of Katie’s photos from our photo shoot last winter and it was chosen. Go big sister go! (No, that dog nose under the fence is NOT me.)
