I can't see!

It's always good to start reading even before you can!

Evidently I make a great bedtime story.
Or wakin'-up-in-the-morning story.
Or midday snack.

Perchance to dream...

I'm telling you.  It's been really hot here lately.
Too hot to do much of anything.

Fortunately, the tall guy insists that
we have conditioned air.
I do not know what is the difference between
conditioned air and regular air,
but I know that it feels a lot better when we come
inside after our walks.

The tall guy finally got his car back from being
fixed at the car place.
I hope they didn't fix it the same way
I was fixed when I was  little!
BUT, I haven't gotten to ride in it yet,
as the tall guy says he'd like to have just a FEW days
of car without being covered in dog fuzz again.
And after all the other stuff, he decided to buy
new tires AND a new battery.
I hope he still has enough money left to buy
my treats!
I'm not so sure he needed to get a battery anyway.
He's got lots of batteries in the flashlights we have.
He could've used one of those.
Oh well.  I better not complain
or he'll make me go outside in the hot!

Stay cool!

It's SO hot! 

How hot is it? 

I don't know.

But I do know that it's not as hot as it was in Arizona.

Remember to drink lots of water.

And stay in the shade when you go on your walk.
Even if something does smell really good
on the other side of the road!

We haven't been to the park in a few days
because someone hit the tall guy when he was driving home
and he had to borrow a car from the car place
and they won't let me ride in it.
Something about all the fuzz that's coming off my butt 
because it's so hot.

But it's ok,
we still gots lots of places to walk around here.

Stay cool!!

Why did the cowboy get a pet dachshund?

Cause he wanted to
get a long little doggy!

And with that in mind, welcome to the

That's some fine showmanship there ER!

Now we've got a special treat.
Here's Frankie and Ernie showing us

Them sure are some rootin'-tootin' ridin' skills 
you got going on there!

We can't forget our feline friends.
Here's our own Diva Madi showing us

That's ok.  I think she brought along her spare tiara 
just in case!

Now we go to the group ridin' doggies.
First up, is Lassie and Benji.

Doing the ever popular "Grab the cookies" trick.
Good job!!

Let's hear it for Bilbo, Dory, Arty AND Jakey.
Showing us HOW IT'S DONE!

just for all the Blogville friends,
we've got
CHESTER from Winnipeg
doing his very special riding trick:

There you go.
It's the amazing 
"Curled up in a ball on the floor of the car"
riding trick!
How does he do it?
Kids, don't try that at home!

How about a really big hand for all of our riders!

 (Well, I'm not so sure about THAT!)

Thanks to everyone who took part in the trick riding.

Don't forget about the Blogville Rodeo
coming up on July 9th!

Maybe there will be a prize for the fastest toy de-stuffer!

Or "The most happy smile after pulling out the fuzz from a brand new toy" trophy.

Or the "Most stuff left on the lawn for the tall guy to have to pick up before he can mow the grass" award.

Or a "Just bypass the store and give me a $10 bill to chew up instead" ribbon.


How about a "Let's find out what is REALLY inside a pink unicorn" medal?

Come on.  I gotta win something!
