Lazy weekend...for the Dogs

Scott spent most of the weekend working on the patio extension. It's almost finished! This will give us more room to entertain. And we won't feel so cramped.

This is the old one.


And this is the extension.


We (Ha Ha...We, like I do any work!) still need to lay the paver stones but for right now, the Dogs are enjoying their very own sand pit. Orson has one of these...but his is staying!


Lola and her dang tennis balls. Boxers aren't known for being ball obsessed, are they????




Then she napped in the shade.

Penny could care less...it was a beautiful weekend and she worked on her tan.




Sherman dug up new spots to cool off. He's the smart one.






I took his stitches out and once the hair grows out, you'll never know he'd beaten up by a girl! The pink stitches were humiliating.

"I'm still tuff..."

After last weekend...a quiet weekend this week was probably good, right. So glad Sherman and Penny are feeling better. Sherman, don't you worry...I still know you are all boy even with your pink stitches!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Sherman's "tuff" photo is great.

Sherman you look so tough, Penny - beautiful as ever, and Lola - no we didn't know any boxers with a tennis ball obsession..?

And hey, patios are definitely for men to work on .....

Ruffs to all

Poor Sherman! I feel for him so much!

Lorenza said...

Your patio extension is looking very nice! I hope you enjoy your sand pit while its still there.
Playing with balls, naping in the shade, getting a suntan... that is a nice weekend!

Great work Scotty. Oh, and I noticed that's not an ice cold I.C. Light on that wall. What's up with that?!

You guys have the coolest stuff in your house and yard! A big sand pit, and that awesome porch - we're jealous!

Oh and Lola, I drew a picture of you to put on the wall of my jail... hope that's okay. Just a "friends" thing... and we're in the Howling Jowls together....

Sherman--I know you are totally the tuffest! And I would like to share that big ole hole with you because we dogs with dark coats have to stick together in the heat. Well, not literally stick together since that will make us hotter.

Looks like you all had a gr8t weekend. We knew a boxer who would hog all the tennis balls at the dog park, so Lola is not alone! BOL!

Dory and Liza said...

Hmm I want to come to Pittsburgh - I want a new patio!! My humans never listen.

Mom says thanks for letting folks know about the spotbot!! And we both loved the Lola baby pics - too precious.

Have a happy week - Dory

T-man said...

It looks like you doggies like the patio the way it is now with all the loose dirt to play in :) Maybe your parents can keep it that way (and fill it with more sand!)

Nugget said...

I am a bit ball crazy myself, any good dog is! Good job on the patio-it's a work out isn't it!

Penny! Protect your precious hide, honey, when you're in the sun.

Lola, you're oozing diva vibes even when you nap.

Sherm, you've got nothing to prove to any of us. We already know you're tuf. (even if you did get whipped by a wittle girlie). Heck, Penny could probably kick my a**.

Goob hugs & kisses,
Stanley
