Michael

Finally, we are back in the game after a long break due to Hurricane Michael. We got our internet and landline back after two+ weeks. We lost it two days prior to the hurricane. Turned out that somebody who is building a house did not know what he was doing and cut the main telephone and internet wire.  He should have asked me to dig, I have lots of experience. They say that I can dig to China. Anyhowls,  now that we are back online we are happy to report that we are doing OK post-Hurricane Michael.

Michael turned out to be one tough cookie and brought lots of havoc. We heard and even saw trees fall down when we took shelter during the storm. There was a lot to organize before and a lot to clean up after Michael’s visit. I think it’s best for Michael not to visit us anymore. Ms. Zulu and I tried to help as best we could. I carried dead branches and pinecones; Ms. Zulu sniffed out trouble. Now I come to think of it, she seemed to sniff a lot at my butt too. How come?!

Be safe and stay out of trouble,

Benji

Majestic

Yesterday we had a visit from a very stately creature, a Monarch! This was a first this year for us. The Monarch was all by itself, no entourage, no slaves. There was not even a carriage drawn by horses to be found.  The VIP was surrounded by Monarch wannabees, the Fritillaries, distant cousins of the Monarchs which are not bees either. All very pretty, but pretty confusing to me. I took a big nap afterward to digest it all without having eaten one bit.

Dreaming of yummies in my tummy,

Shrinking

Help, my big sister has shrunk! I think we need to give her some power bars. I could do with one or two myself as well, you know as an athlete and such. It should do wonders in combination with a long power nap.

Happy lazy weekend!

Reversible

Love to show you our new bandana. Well, actually this one is Ms. Zulu’s. Mine will have to wait until we get some fabric with my favorite colors.  It’s reversible so we can wear it on many occasions. Thank you Tails Around the Ranch for inspiring us to make one!

13 + 3!

Finally, after waiting for a gazillion moons after Ms. Zulu’s 13th B-day, I turned 3 today! That means I’m an adult now, for sure. Does this mean I can vote?! Hmmm, wondering if that would open up some interesting options for me. Anyhowls, time for another B-day pie! I didn’t like the hat much but the pie sure tasted good (P.S. the last part is between you and me because I think we need lots more pie baking practice at headquarters).

The hat has to go, the pie can stay

You can find out below how much I have grown these past three years. Some may notice that the weight limit for the outdoor bed has been exceeded. I do want to point out that doesn’t mean that I should go on a diet. Athletes like me need to eat lots of carbohydrates so just give me a sturdier bed and keep the yummies coming.


 

Proost (cheers),

Dog Days

We are still enduring the dog days of summer in our neck of the woods. On a hot day like today, I like to take a nice long nap in my PetFusion lounge after our morning walk.

Take it easy this week,

National Dog Day!

We are celebrating all breeds and mixes every day but especially today because it’s  National Dog Day. Ms. Zulu looks a bit like Battlescar Galactica because she had four masses that needed to be removed surgically.  We are happy to report that she is recovering nicely without any problems.

Happy Sunny Day,

WOOOFFF!
