Fun weekend

The Chauffeur took a trip and left us behind.   I suppose we could complain, but our cousins came to take care of us.   You know what that means don't you?     It means that instead of three of us, there were seven Golden's for three days.  Our house and back yard is larger and we have more activities which is why they came here instead of us going to their home.  Piper is our swim champion, there is no keeping her out of the pool.    Bella and I know that we are not supposed to jump in when the puny little fence is in place.     A little thing like a fence was not going to slow Piper and Molly up, they just went in anyway.   They finally gave up, moved the fence out of the way and opened the pool up for the week end.    We could get wet, and stay wet for the whole weekend.   Then we had guests in as well, so we had eight or more of us most of the time.    We did not get any pictures to show because we kept the humans too busy.   If they turned their heads we would come out of the pool and make a dash for the house.  As it was, there were wet and muddy tracks in the carpet for most of the week end. 

It was not all fun and games, we managed to do some real work also.    Several new excavations were opened up, and two of the existing holes were enlarged.   We are sorry about the flowers, but they were not growing that well anyway.   They needed the soil loosened up around them. 

Sunday afternoon, when it was time for our four cousins to go home, Piper was still in the pool.    It took some stealth to get her out and dried off.    We sure did sleep well Sunday night.   Even Hilary was worn out from running, playing and enjoying our visitors. 

So when can they take another trip?   We could live with the pool open all the time.   The humans worry about the carpet, but the carpet should dry out over the winter.

  1. Too bad the flowers weren't coming up and you had to dig them out. Darned flowers! Sounds like you had a great time!!

  2. Oh Mogley, What a blast you guys had, swimming excavating and running around, everything Golden's love.
    I guess when you biped leaves you guys really subscribe to the saying "when the cats away the mice shall play" BOL.....

  3. I know how the flowers feel - they never seem to grow too well around Jack either! )

  4. Mogley, we envy you having all that fun. We, here in the Panhandle of Florida, are just staying inside all day because the heat is staggering. Didn't the bi-peds have the carpet just cleaned recently?

    Rock on!

  5. I'm sure they really do appreciate your GReat and special talents!

  6. Flowers and carpet are overrated. At least, that is what we explain to the humans here.

  7. Aww, you'd miss them if they left more often!

    I'm glad you had lots of fun!
