Home Alone

No sooner did My Boy get back from summer camp than the whole Family went on vacation together. I guess I can't begrudge them a little time away, since they only take vacations about every five years or so, but this time we terriers didn't get to go along. Once again, boooring!

So while we pined away forgotten at home, they headed for the great state of Arkansa and while they were there, My Boy and My Girl did a little cave exploring. It's called spelunking, but I think it sounds an awful lot like the Earth Dog Trials I'm hearing about. They did find some rats, only they had wings and flew around faster than lightning. I believe My Boy and I will have to do some exploring soon and find a cave closer to home so we can spelunk together.


They also saw a Pivot Rock, and in this photo it looks mighty unstable to me. A good puff of Oklahoma wind would knock that right over.


Walking and shopping was fun, and they found a biker store and bought leather jackets for their motorcycle rides this fall. Mom said all that uphill and downhill climbing on those steep and narrow streets was almost too much for her. If she lived there and did much shopping, she'd have prettier thighs than Richard Simmons.


While they were walking, they saw a monkey in a dress. She was just too cute! People were giving her dollar bills. She's taste-testing this one before she gives it to her dad.

So what did Cap, Glynn and I do while My Family was out having a good time? We had a housesitter come and take care of us. I don't know why everyone thinks we needed supervision, do you? It wasn't like we were going to make some long distance phone calls, try on shoes, or order heaps of pizza on the credit card when they weren't looking. It wasn't so bad, though, as I did manage one great escape by squeezing past the housesitter's legs, but she caught me pretty quick. I taught her that you gotta be fast on your feet to keep up with me.

Honestly, Tell...life isn't fair...you've been waitin' patiently for ur boy and THEY GO OFF AND LEAVE YA....

I hope they don't mind the visa bill you guys racked up when they were gone. I think the extra hooge pizzas with every toppin' known to man was a bit excessive, but a dog has to keep us his strength, huh??

Barkin' at ya, Man

I'm sad you didn't get to go with your Boy. Looks to me like they could have done with your protection for the spelunking, those flying rats and the toppling rock.Pretty scary stuff. Sounds far safer for you to be at home Tell.

Wiry wags, Eric x

The absolute nerve...your boy comes home and then poof...they all go spelunking.Didn't they realize how much easier it would have been to spelunk with you there??(bit tricky with those rats flying around but we have utter faith you could have done it) Oh well hope they don't mind the visa bill with the pizzas on them..I mean what did they think you all would do???Love A+A(Archie now wants to spelunk)

Too bad you couldn't go explore those caves with your boy, but at least you got to give your sitter a good scare. I've tagged you for an award on my blog.
