Happy Labor Day 2016 my friends! I imagine a lot of folks will be doing what I’m doing in the photo…snoozing…resting…taking it easy. I did do that Saturday and Sunday, but not today!
Today I am the only one in the family “laboring” besides Mom. I have a Level 1 Exterior Elements Trial for nose work, bright and early! Mom and I hope it goes well! We have rested up so we are ready to hit it hard! I have my nose work bag packed and am ready to go. Today also marks day one of my seven day birthday week! Sunday when I turn the big one – zero, aka, pawfect ten, I’m celebrating with a pawsome giveaway, so stay tuned!
Bailie will most likely be a lazy girl on the forbidden couch while we are gone. Somehow, she feels having some of her toys along when she is naughty protects her!
Sophie will be in her cat tree on the top perch settled in for a nap. This is nothing new for her as she spends most of her time there sleeping. She has really bought into the beauty sleep theory. I guess it works, as she is a very pretty kitty.
Cat bro Bert will steal my dog bed in the front window for his bath and napping spot. Sometimes I feel like other dogs laugh at me because I have cat smell on my furs. With Bert in my bed so often, my furs pick up on that feline stink!
If you are home with your dogs and want to do something special for them this Labor Day 2016, why not grill up some burgers for dogs? Have a fun and safe holiday!

Happy Labor Day and good luck at your trial! We’re being pretty lazy this holiday weekend too, but we’re practicing our nose work and keeping busy around the house as well. We’re just enjoying the last weekend of summer, but it’s sure been feeling like fall is coming, with very cool nights here; which is a good thing!
Got my title, so I’m a happy girl!
Ellen Shedlarz says
Good luck Emma. But most importantly enjoy the time with Mom.
Had a lot of fun searching, a good day!
Christmas the Dachshund says
Looks like the day will be PAWSOME!
It started out raining, but luckily quit before the trial started.
Good luck Emma… I hope for a truckload of ribbons and many happy moments for you and the mama. Happy Labor Day to you all… think I will join Bailie on the couch :o)
Thanks Easy. I got my ribbon which is all I wanted.
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
Good luck to you today! Enjoy the day!
Thank you! I did awesome and finished my last level 1 element.
Happy Labor Day sweet friends! It sounds like quite an exciting week!!!
Birthday week is always fun and exciting!
Sparkle the PBGV says
I have my paws crossed for you Emma! Seven days to PAW -TY…let the fun begin! Have a safe day. XOXO Sparkle
I started it out with my title…couldn’t ask for more!
Sparkle the PBGV says
Good luck with the trial! You’re lucky Cat Bro Bert lets you have your bed every now and then–Barley usually ends up having to sleep in the tiny cat beds because her brother steals hers.
I sleep in cat beds too a lot because the cat steals mine!
Genevieve Petrillo says
Good luck on your sniffing work, E. And happy birthday-week. I am also turning the big 1-0 this month. Mom says 10 is the new 5, which is why we both seem so young and crazy.
Love and licks,
I hope it is the new 5 because I’m not ready to be an old dog yet!
The Island Cats says
Good luck, Emma! And we hope you get a little time to relax. 🙂 Happy Labor Day!
I’m back home and putting my paws up with my new title.
The Daily Pip says
Good luck with your Nose Work! I am sure you will be a star! Making sure my human sees that final shot – I definitely deserve a burger or two or three
Those burgers are great, but I have no time to grill this Labor Day because I’m laboring with nose work.
Groovy Goldendoodles says
Looks like you’ve got your week already mapped out! Looking forward to hearing all about your trials later this week along with the scoop on your big 10 Birthday bash.
I’m off to a good start with my new title! Yay! It will be a great week!
Best of luck today! And birthday week…..nothing better than that.
I love birthday week. Mom is a bit sad I’m turning ten, but I’m excited.
M. K. Clinton says
Best of luck in your nose search class! I cannot believe that you are turning 1~0! You have always been a perfect 10 to me. ♥ ♥ ♥
I’m hitting the double digits! Amazing, but I left another title on my 9 years today, so I’m happy!
Emma I knew you had a faintly familiar aroma…it is Essence of Bert!!
Glad to see you are comfortable with that and have accepted it…..’cause feline furs go everywhere!
Hugs madi your bfff
If you live with cats, you have to accept that cat smell, awful as it is. It is a fact of life.
Good Luck Emma…we hope the rain let up a bit!!!
We will be napping so we can help you celebrate your barkday the rest of the week!!
Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo
The rain quit for the trial, and the clouds kept it from getting too warm. It was perfect!
Yay for Labor Day and birthdays!
and nose work titles!
Caren Gittleman says
Sophie???? How in the WORLD did we not know about SOPHIE?????? Wait, what????????? We of course knew about Bert, but Sophie? She is GORGEOUS!! Don’t work too hard my furiends! Happy Labor Day! xoxo
Sophie is a recluse type. We rarely see her around. She has her spots where she hangs out with her paws up looking beautiful. We got her and Bert on the same day but they are very different.
Rama's Mama says
I can’ wait to hear how you did on your test! And happy birthday week! Sounds like it’s going to be exciting!
I got my title, so the week is off to a good start!
2 Brown Dawgs says
Sounds like a wonderful Labor Day weekend.
Labor Day was perfect for me!
Tails Around the Ranch says
Looks like you guys had a terrific Labor Day weekend. I love that you are the busy worker and Bailie camouflages herself amongst the toys on the sofa (great disguise-no one can see her ?). Hee, hee.
Bailie is always about the fun aspect. I take things much more seriously!
Ten is the new five. 🙂 I heard how well you did in your Nosework Emma, we are all so proud of you. Congratulations.
I am looking forward to seeing what you have dreamed up for your birthday giveaway.
I’m very proud of myself and my nose work. I have a post about it tomorrow.
