The Secret Brook

Saige here, reporting from Crick Hollow. Last year we saw on the map that there was a Brook nearby the Camp...but it was straight through the woods. So we cut a small path and here it is!

Isn't it pretty? It is a great place to cool off...

...and it is very peaceful because there is no one but us way back here.

And on the way back the trees are marked with orange tape, see? So we can weave our way through the thick forest and not get lost.

And soon you will come out to the little Cottage, and there it is! I hope you liked our little secret brook!

Gangsta Guinness and Fatty Loaf

Yo Yo what's up DAWGS? It is Gangsta Guinness here with an update on Groucho.

So now that Groucho has some down time he has been working on his new Rap Album. I am his producer. We are able to download the tunes directly into the alien antenna on top of his head.

I mean, you have all seen his revolutionary breakdance moves and heard his unique sound--the dude has practically invented his own brand of music...we figure we should capitalize on his talents. So we are going to be rich and it's going to be gold chains and Hot Rods for everyone...

Groucho's official name is G.G Fatty Loaf A.K.A Vile Sheets. We got his name off "Get your own Rap name " website... click here if you want your own rap name. All you dawgs out there! and let us know what it is. Guinness OUT!

The Cat Hotel

Hi! This is Finn! While I was visiting at Silver Shoe I found THIS!

A Cat Hotel! Isn't that neat? So when people are away their cats can stay at this luxurious resort!

And look...NO DOGS ALOUD...So I snuck around back and sure enough there were some tenants!

They were out on the balcony enjoying their vacation.

But they don't seem too friendly. Maybe it just take them some time to warm up?

Luckily, I am a patient girl....

The Traitor

Guinness here at the keyboard today--and somethin' aint mom came home from work covered in dog hair...

I grab the camera...140 new pictures! Looks like my mom took her lunch break over at Silver Shoe today. That is where Silver lives (Saige's sister). Two Labradorks live there too! Cinnamin and Oreo.

OH. Well well. It looks as if Finn and Liam made an appearance too....

Do you think you can handle all these girls, Liam???

And what is this? What is this procession all about?

COOKIES? You have GOT to be kidding me!

And refreshments too? This is like watching some cruel horror film.

...and now I see that they all get belly rubs....

Et tu, Liam? Oh the insanity of it all...

Looks like everyone has gone a little silly...

I suppose now that bellies are full and rubbed they want a little snooze...WHAT THE???

GACK! My mom looks like she is in some kind of wolfhound paradise!

This is too much. I have to go have a talk with my mom. Let her know who the #1 dog is around here....

Guinness here. We lost our dear friend Tavish. She was Gramps and Grams faithful companion. She was very old. Everyone who met her fell in love with her.

She was soft and gentle. You can just tell that in her sweet face. She had the best life that any dog could ever want.

So we must be sad a little, but mostly happy for the goodness she brought to our lives. There is a new little human pup on the way any day now--over in Newfoundland. And so Gram and Gramps will be real grandparents now...and a new chapter in our lives will begin...

One life moves on, and another one steps in. It is funny how that is. But Tavish hasn't really left. Our memories of her and the joy she brought stay with us, and we carry that love in our hearts. She is part of us forever and so she lives on within us.
i am sure one night i will find the place
of your kind, brown eyes and your gentle face,
Where the wild wind is born and there you will be,
and nothing has changed as you run to me.
...and i shall forget how long was the way
and we'll both be young, as we were one day...

Groucho on Drugs and in Jail

Guinness here--walk with me for a bit while I tell you about Groucho. Last week, Groucho dislocated his hip AGAIN the day before he was due to get his sling off. It was kind of my mom's fault. She went over to his house and he followed her downstairs without anyone noticing...
Then he couldn't get back UP the stairs on 3 legs. So she tried to gently "bum boost" him. Well, on that last step the little guy got over ambitious and did a sort of jump to the top...

...and that is when it happened. Hmmm...the cows look good. So now he has to keep his sling on for TWO WEEKS and no fooling around this time or it could mean surgery if it happens again. The vet said this was not a breed thing, or a dog thing or an age was just a fluke thing.

Let's rest here a bit... Where was I? Oh yes, just like any human can dislocate their shoulder, so can any alien dislocate their hip. Guess he shouldn't have been practicing his levitational skills in bed. SOB.

Well, my humans went over to Groucho's for supper and here inlies the scandal.

This is called a "Maritime Turkey Dinner" and WE WERE NOT INVITED!

Worst of all, we could not enlist the help of Groucho's other worldly levitational skills to sneak us some. See look--here he is in jail! He has to be kept still and quiet.

And see him knocked out cold? It is because he is on drugs too! He has been rendered completely useless. So no lobster for us...and for a little while, no Groucho either.
