It’s Labor Day weekend my friends! Labor Day is sort of the last hurrah of summer, before we all get back to our more serious lives. For this reason, Bailie and I decided to borrow Gramma’s super cool wheels and head out to rent a summer house for some R & R. The sun was reflecting terribly on the windshield, thus the white patches in the photo.
First we looked at a log cabin summer house. It was not bad, but it had a telephone which means we could be disturbed and the roof appeared to be sagging a bit. I thought we should check out another house or two before we made a decision.
We decided to rent the second summer house we saw. It isn’t much, but it is a shelter and keeps the elements off our furry heads. It seems a bit safer than the log house too. That is me you see peaking through the door window. Mom told us to never open the door unless she is home, so I’m kind of hiding out in here. Bailie heard something outside the house and got scared, leaving me to check it out.
I don’t hear or see anything, so I decided to get a better look out the front window. It sure looks like a nice day out there. I think we are safe and should get out and do some racing around. Enough time spent at the computer with my blog!
I would like to offer you one of my favorite quotes that has to do with “labor”. For Bailie and I, our jobs are nose work and tracking, but we never consider it to be real work because we love it so much, so this quote really says how we feel:
“Choose a job you love,
and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
Hope everyone is having a wonderful and safe Labor Day weekend!
I am joining the Black and White Sunday Blog Hop sponsored by Dachshund Nola and Sugar the Golden Retriever. Sometimes photos are simply more fun in black and white.

Emma, you and Bailie are so cute! I love your car photo!! It looks like you guys are having a fun Labor Day! 😀
Lots of fun and mischief as always!
you have a good paw to pick the right summer house! Bravo! And your grannie’s ride is super cool… hope the wind will not blow your hats away while cruising :o) Confucius is a very wise guy , I will follow this advice!
We may lose the hats in the wind, but we have more at home 😉 Nothing better than wind in our ears!
Emma, Great photos!! I would like to come and take a ride with you and play in the house!! We hope you have a great labor day!!! Happy BW Sunday!
I love to ride in a convertible, that wind feels so good!
Susan C. Willett says
Looks like you picked the right house to stay in. Enjoy your weekend!

Now we just need to find a place to get our food.
That is such a great summer house! We might have to get one of those for our feral kitties!
I bet they would love it and the often sell them cheap at garage sales and stuff.

Emma, your ride is way too cool…I love it, but the mom says I would probably fall out. Those are pawsome summer houses. Confucius was a wise man. Have a safe and fun Labor Day weekend. XOXO Sparkle the PBGV
You always need to be a safe rider and wear your seat belt. Katie did jump out of the convertible in Germany, but her seat belt kept her safely dangling over the side of the car. It was at a slow speed too.
Golden Woofs says
How cool that your grandma got a convertible. For sure its a PAWsome ride. COOL houses 🙂 Have a relaxing Sunday. Golden Woofs
We love convertibles, but my mom isn’t a fan, so we have to borrow Gramma’s.
Emily @ Adventures of a Dog Mom says
Nice choice of summer house!
Mom is seriously regretting not taking pictures of me driving her convertible! Enjoy your weekend girls! Love Dolly
Nothing better than a dog in a convertible!
Hahahaha!; The first picture is fantastic!
Thank you 😉

Harley didn’t know you had your own “crib” Emma, he’s wondering why you haven’t thrown a 4th of July bash yet? Any plans for a costume pawty for Halloween paw haps?
Not sure about a Halloween party. We usually celebrate that holiday with a trip to the pumpkin patch.
Molly The Wally says
Love your Summer house. Enjoy the last day and have a serene easy Sunday now.
Best wishes Molly
Gotta work on my sniff stuff, but that work is all fun, and then napping is on the schedule.
Jan K says
Enjoy the rest of your weekend hanging out in your summer home, and cruising in Gramma’s car, Emma! It seems like the perfect way to spend the last weekend of summer.
I thought it was fitting for this weekend.
Reilly and Denny says
wise words to listen to – never open the door to strangers – although if one did come close we are sure some barking would scare them away. Have a wonderful weekend you two
Mom says the criminals would die of laughter if we try to bark and scare them. I don’t think that is a good thing.
Oz the Terrier says
BOL!!!! You girls look PAWESOME in that convertible, Emma…like the girls of Summer! I wish the log cabin didn’t have a phone because that would be where I would like to stay when getting away from it all. I guess the other house was the better option. I hope it is a great long weekend by you!
Thanks, Oz. Phones these days are everywhere and I just need some quiet time for my long floppys. You have a great weekend as well.

You are killing us!! So funny
Lily & Edward
So sorry, I didn’t mean to kill anyone 😉
Frankie and Ernie says
OMD you gotted to DRIVE to the Vacation Destination??? And then to Chews which cottage you wanted. THAT is FANGtastic. Do they offer Snack and Nap times?
It’s just Bailie and I, so we can do what we want at this summer house. I think Gramma wants her car back in decent shape, though.
SlimDoggy (@MySlimDoggy) says
Hope you enjoy your vacation – looks like a great summer house. Love that quote too.
It’s just right for Bailie and me.
We love convertibles! Mom had one when I was a puppy. You two look fabulous in your granny’s car. Have a great weekend, we already walked once and mom says there is a second walk coming up soon! Hooray for holidays!
We dogs love them too, but my mom isn’t a fan. We’ve been walking and running a lot, plus working on Bailie’s tracking homework and my nose work. Time for a nap at this point.
M. K. Clinton says
That is a lovely summer home! Are you summering in the Hamptons? You girls look super cool in Gramma’s car! ♥ Have a Happy Labor Day. XXOO Bentley
No, that would be too far to drive. We are just in the western suburbs out by Lake Minnetonka.
LOL Looks like you’re having a barking good holiday weekend!
We are having a lot of fun, but I have to say, we are starting to tire out.
Miley's Daily Scoop says
We love your summer house, perhaps we could rent it some time! BOL! Happy b&w Sunday!
You could rent it. It doesn’t cost paper green stuff, you just have to follow the rules – no chewing or bathroom in the house and pick up your poo outside.
Tenacious Little Terrier says
Enjoy your summer house! Is BBQ happening this weekend too?
I doubt we will be grilling much because there is rain on and off and it is super windy, but we have lots of snacks that need to be eaten.
Nice job picking out a perfect summer house. Perhaps you could use your skills to help other dogs find nice homes?
Bailie and I would make excellent realtor dogs, but it seems most dogs don’t get to choose their own homes. The humans just bring the dog house home and that is it.
Amanda @ Mom of Dogs says
What a cute little house! Phoebe and Nora need one of these!
Just a plastic kids playhouse, but it is enough for a dog or two.
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
You gals look good in all those houses, hope you enjoyed the fancy car ride. Thanks for the great quote. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
You guys enjoy your weekend too. We have lots of homework to work on, I bet you dogs do too!
Whitley Westie says
Happy Labor Day!
Enjoy your Labor Day too!
Dogs N Pawz says
What a cool summer house! Happy Labor Day!
Thank you! Happy Labor Day!

Wow! I just love that quote! So so true!
ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!
It is absolutely true. Too bad everyone can’t love what they do!
Have a great Labor Day! I have been seeing you on Facebook but for some reason I am not getting your blog.
I wonder why not? I haven’t hear anyone else having problems. I will have to see if you are on the subscriber list. Have you tried resubscribing?
Emma yes I went to your blog and subscribed again did not help.
Still trying to figure it out. Let me know if you do start getting the emails again. Thank you!
I will Emma 🙂
Woof Woof Mama (@WoofWoofMama) says
A cool convertible and an awesome summer house…looks like you guys are living the life!!!
We try to live it up most of the time 😉
It’s a great quote 🙂
Mom loves it because it is so true.
karen Meldrum says
WHOA!! Bailey’s driving???? Hope you had your seat belts on. I agree with your house choice.
Oh no, I’m driving, Bailie is riding along. I won’t ride with that crazy one!
I vote for the second one too… haha… sagging roof – –
The first one looked nicer but it was falling apart 😉
2 Brown Dawgs says
Love the house you picked. Hope you had a nice weekend!
We had a pawsome weekend but we are worn out. I didn’t even get up this morning until Mom and Bailie came back from their run and I had to go for my walk.
Nature by Dawn says
I love those summer homes! And that photo of you sticking your head out the window is positively adorable!
Thank you. They were just right for the two of us.
