The President's Weekend

Well, I am finally getting around to reporting what my parents and I did this weekend. I think I had more fun because 1) I am spoiled, and 2) my parents were in cold and snowy Michigan while I was frolicking with a newfound buddy in warmer Alaska.

This is what my parents saw most of the weekend: snow, ice, and cold temperatures. Actually, this is a pretty shot of Lake Michigan in a tiny town called Empire.

This is my aunt -- Annie. She is a big clutz, er, Airedale Terrier.

This is my Daddy with Annie. Daddy tried to get Annie to sit in his lap like I do, but Daddy's lap is too small.

Now I had a rocking weekend with my new boxer friend -- Roxy. Sure, Roxy initially tried to get in my face to prove that she was a tougher dog, but I nipped that in the bud. By the end of the weekend, I had Roxy fully under my command.

Here we are, both attempting to look adorable to get the doggy cookie. Obviously, I was the only one who succeeded

Here is Roxy looking appropriately ashamed after realizing that she couldn't even begin to compete with me in the cuteness department

Most definitely your are cuter than that Roxy. grandpa has an Airedale. His name is Faolin. Annie looks like she is very friendly. Too bad his lap is too small.


rpm said... and Goodboy Norman are so sassy! I like your boxer friend. Your parents must have a million sky miles with all the traveling they do.
