We interrupt this broadcast ....

We interrupt the Paris dog extravaganza to show you a very cool picture of me licking the kitchen floor. Mom was taking my picture while Hershey and his baby were here and she got this very cool picture of me. Unfortunately, Hershey's baby accidentally got in the picture, but oh well ... what can a dog do? The kitchen floor was very tasty by the way.

Hershey got a haircut!! His mother and dad cut all his hair off and he looks like a puppy! Honestly, he looks 10 years younger. Well, maybe not 10 years ... because he is only two ..... but he does look younger. He told me in confidence that he really prefers the new haircut because now things don't chase him. Before when he went outside, leaves and things would jump on him and chase him ... not a good thing for a guy is afraid of his own shadow. Here he is doing some investigative work while trying to avoid the leaves in my yard, which isn't easy right now ... they're everywhere.

Here we are posing on the porch for the requisite Thanksgiving photograph. Seconds after this pictures was taken we both jumped off the loveseat and barked ferociously at something important and dangerous and Mom gave up taking pictures. Maybe it's a good thing.

Hi Copper--good move hiding behind the human puppy so you could lick the floor--we do that too, but there's never a human puppy around to hide us, so we get yelled at (well, not really yelled at, but my people don't like it when we scuffle about licking the floor, so they try not to let us do it at all).

Licks to Hershey.

See ya

Hey Copper,
I always loved licking the floor for some strange reason especially the kitchen floor. Miriam has grown a lot since we last saw her!
PS : Two of my favourite boys in one pikture...*swoon* Hershey does look really young..his hair looks as short as mine!

Hi, Copper
Kitchen floors are the best to lick! I don't know why!!!
Yes, Miriam is growing very fast!
You two look very handsome in that picture!
Have a good night

Hershey looks so handsome with his trim! He does look younger, just like you said.

Little Miriam is growing up and is a pretty baby. Hershey is lucky to have a baby like Miriam. It's also nice that you get to enjoy (?) Miriam's company for bits of time. I hope you and Hershey don't get ignored when Miriam is in the room. Did Nixon come to visit too?

I bet Miriam eventually will leave good biscuit crumbs on that floor! You two are good watchdogs to protect her from invisible forces.

My Dacshund sister has to get haircuts because leaves chase her, too! One year there was a weed that kept getting stuck in her fur and she's pull them out herself and she ended up with one stuck in her throat and it made her really sick which of course made Mom worry a bunch so she had to go to the vet. Mom and Dad shave her down to have short hair like other dacshunds. She doesn't have pretty fur like you guys, her's is really course and it drives Mom crazy.

I wanted to tell you that I saw a 3 month old puppy at Petsmart here that looked JUST like you. Mom didn't have her camera or I would have taken a picture.
