Happy 4th of July!

Hi, pups and Girl Girl, Tasha here. Its always a happy day when the humans are home with us on a week day! Being the 4th of July, that means there's been lots of fireworks going off so Eva has been spooked some lately. She's doing lots better than she did last year. She usually runs to her kennel and hides and shakes really hard, but last night she got some Rescue Remedy and here tight shirt put on and she stayed out with the rest of the pack! And she only shivered a little bit. Quite an improvement for the easily frightened Little One!

So we finally have a chance to respond to the tag we got from Ivy to tell you a little bit about our humans. First off here's somethings about momma.

She grew up in southern Minnesota, she works for a big, evil, banking conglomerate who she has to travel a lot for. We don't like it very much when she's gone and show how much we missed her when she finally comes home. She loves us very much and does lots of stuff to make us happy, healthy pups.

Dad grew up on a farm in southwest Minnesota and went to a VERY small high school. He only had 32 other people in his graduating class and he played 9-man football (1975 State 9-man Champions!), basketball, and ran track. He worked for Minneapolis-based rock bands for 12 years. He and momma met during this time. He went to electronics school and has worked for the company he is now with for the last 14 years.

Hope all you pups have a great 4th of July with your pack and don't get too scared by all the fireworks. We'll tag Sparky, Suzy and Kate, and Satchel.

I know its probably hot where most of you pups are today, so I will leave you with a picture of me from last March doing one of the things I love to do most!

Hope this picture helps you to feel a little cooler! Belly Rubs, Tasha.

Tasha.. thanks for the snow photo. It was hot here today, so I sure needed a cool off. I helped grill hotdogs and hamburgers (and got one or two as well). Happy 4th to you and your mom and dad! It was cool learning a bit about them!

Nice to learn more about your parents. That is a nice picture of you in the snow.

Holly said...

Oh I love the snow. The picture is so inspiring to make me feel cool. Your humans are good people. You'all have a good home.

Woowoo! I'm sorry fireworks scare you. It rained hard here, so we went for a long walk in the morning before the rain, then stayed inside and were lazy. It was great!

Ooooo, look at that picture of you from March rolling around in the snow. We could use some snow over here. It has been hotter than heck. Thanks for posting about your parents! It's so interesting to find out more about our secretaries, isn't it? As for the rescue remedy, my mom tried it on me, but all I did was throw up. That was when I was younger.. I wonder how I'd react to it now that I am a full grown pup!

WOW, Tasha! I wish we had snow like that right NOW! It's HOT!
