The Tennis Ball Guard


Those of you that know me well know that I love tennis balls and that my little sister Bess sometimes drives. me. crazy!   She always wants what I want and while we usually share our stuff  I really don’t like sharing my tennis balls.

This morning My Margret was sitting on the couch having her coffee and reading a book before she had to get ready for work and I was on the couch beside her with my tennis ball. Up jumps the bouncy girl who wanted  it too so I dropped it in My Margret’s lap.  My Margret quickly tucked it away by her side as Bess nosed me out of the way so she could sit and stare at My Margret in hopes that she would give her my tennis ball.

Now My Margret can out wait any of us so after 15 minutes Bess finally got tired of waiting and jumped down to go into the other room. After she had left My Margret quietly gave me back my tennis ball and tucked it in by my side.  I gave her a thank you look and she ruffled my ears and gave me a quick cuddle.   We understand each other very well especially when it comes to guarding tennis balls.

Up For The Challenge

Me and my sisters and Linus Kitty are tired.

My Greg’s leg owie isn’t all better yet and My Margret has a owie on her hand because she had an oops when she was using some scissors. So this weekend they were supposed to take it easy so they could get all better. 

But they don’t sit very good.

So we sat on them.

It’s a tough job but we did it!

Cheese Filled Carrots

So like when our friend Noodle came up with show your favorite treat as a memorial for our other friend Lexi. My Greg came up with the idea of cheese stuffed carrots. Although we had already posted our usual favorite treat earlier he still wanted to try making our new favorite snack. So after church today he and My Margret made them for us.

First My Greg drilled a hole the length of the carrot. 

Then he handed it to My Margret and she sprayed the cheese into the carrot.

Then we got to eat them.
I took mine and waited for my sisters to come with me to the living room where we ate them. They were sooooo good!!!

Bess finished hers first so she went back for seconds, but the battery on the drill ran out.

So we did the next best thing, we licked the cheese off of My Margret’s fingers.

We liked our new treat so much that when she offered us plain carrots a few minutes later I looked at the table then My Margret and said “hey, what about the cheese?

Treats For Lexi Day


In memory of our friend Lexi we are posting pictures of us eating our favorite treats, hot dogs, cheese and carrots.


It took about 10 seconds for me to eat mine then I started on my sister Belle’s. My Margret made Belle another bowl of treats but that’s a story for another day.

Many thanks to Noodle’s mom for setting this up.

Lexi, we love and miss you.  Gentle nose nudges and hugs to your mom and dad.

Stuffies Make Everything Better


My Greg hurt himself the other day while up on our roof painting.  He has something called a partial muscle tear in his leg, so he’s walking with these stick like things that make a lot of noise and kind of go all over the place.  I don’t think I like them and I know My Greg doesn’t either.


My sisters and I take turns sitting with him to keep him company but I wanted to do something more.


So I gave him my stuffie.

Pup Pen Security Guards

After a rain delay My Margret started painting in our pup pen this afternoon. I guess my sister Bess didn’t know who she was because she barked at her. I tried to tell Bess that it was My Margret and even after she took off her painting cap and sunglasses Bess still barked.

And barked.

And barked.

And barked some more
Until she finally got tired of barking. Then she just stared.
