How I Spent My Summer

Hi Everbody, I'm back!!
I wasn't really gone, I've been here everyday but Mom was too frazzled to help me with the blog. When I try to type, my paws are too big and I hit a bunch of keys at the same time. Mom says you can't read it when that happens. I don't know why computers don't have bigger keys so we dogs can type without help.

Anyway, it was kind of a boring summer. We didn't get to go to the lake because Mom was afraid to leave Miss Morgan home alone and she was too ditzy to go swimming. Sometimes one of us was feeling sick so we all just stayed here.

We didn't go to the drive up ice cream store because Mom has us boys on some kind of crazy diet where we can't have dairy and she says ice cream is dairy. She even switched us from yogurt to applesauce at bedtime. That's OK, applesauce is yummy. Besides Mom has lost a bunch of pounds and doesn't want to regain any of them so she doesn't eat much ice cream or anything else that tastes good. Noah and I  had tummy troubles but we're so much better that now we eat duck kibble with this great stuff mixed in. Only Sebastian eats the special home cooked food now.
So we all did a bunch of this....sleep. Except Morgan, of course, who wandered around the house all night waking everybody up. Mom has finally got that straightened out and Morgan sleeps at night now, just like the rest of us.
 Most of us got haircuts this summer. Dad did it. Lola Tess and Bailey all look really good. Noah got one too but you can't really tell from his before and after pics because he's a hairy fellow. I got some of my hairs trimmed but I'm a work in progress. So is Norma Jean who doesn't like to stand still. Miss Morgan is getting a few hairs cut each day because she can't stand for very long without falling down and even Sebastian got trimmed around the ears and feet.
 Don't get me wrong, the summer wasn't bad. We got several deliveries like this one. 
Dad had a birthday during the summer and Mom made him a cake. We couldn't have any but look what she put on top. Sprinkles!! And she gave me some when nobody was looking.
It rained a lot this summer but on dry days we played with our water squirting toy and jumped in the wading pool. We chased squirrels a lot too because Mom says we have a bumper crop of squirrels this year and they won't stay out of the bird feeders. When she sees one get in the feeder, she opens the door and we race outside barking and make them go back up in the trees.
So you see, it was a pretty good summer and I'm feeling good again after my stroke so now we can look forward to fall and then the best season of all, winter. This year we're all wishing for lots of snow.

Your pal, Fudge

Could have been A LOT worse. Sometimes it's fun just staying around the house. Now, we think you should take your mum for long walks so she can keep those pounds off...bwahaahaa!

What! No ice cream!

It's been a quiet summer for us too, just too hot to do much.
