Our Doggy Vacation

Hurray! Our Auntie Kristen is here this week to spend time with us. Sherman and I are showing her our blog and introducing her to all of our DWB friends.

Our Auntie Kristen has no puppers of her own... she had some turtles once, but they are not nearly as fun as I am. So we have been helping her learn all about dogs and how to take care of us.

Our first problem:

Auntie Kristen should have taken better notes when her and mom talked about dog stuff, because Auntie couldn't remember if she should feed us once a day or twice a day.

I told her, "Auntie Kristen, with Dog as my witness, we eat twelve times a day."

Auntie Kristen didn't believe me. Com'on Auntie Kristen! You don't believe this face?

We also made sure to tell Auntie Kristen that we HAVE to be walked each and every day, sometimes more than once, and that on our walks we must stop every 4 feet and sniff. She should just wait until we’re done sniffing to continue the walk.

Also, we explained we ALWAYS sleep in bed with mom and dad, so Auntie Kristen must let us do the same.

Auntie Kristen is such a quick learner – we are eating lots and lots, going for walks AND cuddling at night!

In fact, it’s my turn for a walk, so I have to go get ready!

Love ya lots

Sophie Brador said...

Don't forget to tell your Auntie Kristen that Sophie Brador comes to visit frequently and also gets to eat twelve times a day, play with a tennis ball constantly and sleep on the bed. But make sure she knows I'm not into cuddling so much. Just hanging about. I'll be by around 8.


Saint Lover said...

Oh goodness.. you guys are giving your poor auntie a real run for her money. ;)

Tasha & Eva said...

It's good to find a human that is so easily trained. Keep up the good work.

The Mommy only feeds me once a day...and you get to be fed 12 times? I want to come & vacation with you guys. One more doggie couldn't hurt!!

Lady Kaos said...

Boy is Lola going to be super jealous when she comes home and finds out how much fun you had!

Lady Kaos said...

PS. Can I rent your Auntie Kristen for a weekend?

Petra said...

You guys are so lucky that Auntie Kristen is such a quick learner. But then again, you are great teachers ---- so this is going to be a marvlous week for all of you!

Deefor said...

Those are good rules. I like to eat 12 times too-- sometimes off the rug and table. She sounds like a good dog sitter. Would she like an ugly little terrierist named Arrow?


wally said...

You guys are very helpful to your Auntie. Maybe she could come sit on us, too!


Stanley said...

Penny Girl!

You are so sweet to train Auntie Kristen about life with Da Dogs of Jackman Ave! She's very quick. I bet she can do tricks too.

Soak up all the chicken backs, walks and cuddles you can while you've got her captive... uh... watching you.

Goober love & smooches,

Mack said...

Huskee Boy said...

Great plan Penny! You guys are so gonna enjoy your time with Auntie Kristen... Ummm.. can I have her over sometime?

Moco said...

Family can be so naive. You are so smart to be able to milk her for all you can get. Hopefully it is not the beginning of a personality disorder.

happy said...

Can your Auntie Kristen come over to my place once she's done with you guys?

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Can I borrow your Auntie Kristen when your mom and dad get back???

BWTH Dog House said...

Oh Sherman, you taught Auntie Kristen very well. Good job.

slurpy licks,

Kathryn and Ari said...

It's a good thing your Auntie has such helpful dogs around! (smile). Ari tihnks she's supposed to be fed 12 times a day, too--and she's not opposed to lying about whether or not she's had dinner!

CoCo said...

Your Auntie Kristen sure is a great listener in doing as you say. Unfortunately I do not have an aunt, but I do have two Uncles. They both are never good listeners to my guide.


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Do you think you could rent Auntie Kristen for when Mumsie and Daddy go to the beach??? She sounds fab, if a bit innocent...

At least she's not givin' ya bugs and such like she did for her turtle??!!!!!

You guys are goin' to need to go on a diet when ur peeps get home!!!!!

Burgh Barks,

Pacco de Mongrel said...

Hi guys,
Your Aunt Kristen sounds nice. She is a very quick learner. How is Lola doing at camp?

The Brat Pack said...

Um, are your pawrents EVER coming home from Mexico??? They aren't in a Mexican prison or anything right????


Emma the Golden Girl said...

and the Canine Kids said,

Your Auntie Kristen sounds like lots of fun. Enjoy your visit with her.

Simba said...
