Busy Weekend

We've had quite the busy weekend here trying to wear Mr. Monty out! We bought both the boys rawhide chewies, hoping to immobolize Monty in one spot for at least 15 minutes. Was it successful!

Here is Sam enjoying his bone...

...and here is Montyzoomie enjoying his:

After spending a good hour chewing on them, the boys decided to work on their teamwork. Because of the dismal failure of Sam's bid for Olympic Dog Bathing gold medal, Sam and Monty have decided to team up and try for Synchronized Dog Napping. Here they are trying the rather difficult "Tandem Floor Position". Keep the ears up, Sam! Monty, paws together!

Here they are working on the advanced position, the "Floor Head Lift". If they can nail this, then they are sure to win any competition!

Now, we must tell you... our weekend took a rather frightening turn. Don't look at these pictures if you are weak of heart! Our house was invaded by...


Did you see the size of the teeth on it?

Oh, wait, wait... Our mistake! It was Monty all along!

Of course, good boys deserve lots of adoration. We have no worries about Sam's behavior, but Monty's is always a little bit questionable. Remind us one time to tell you about his little endeavour to find out what our leather couch cusions are stuffed with... However, this weekend, Monty was excellent!

...and what does Monty think of all of this?

Couch cushions? I have no idea what she is talking about...

We hope you all have a great week!


  1. Please tell the blue monster he may come visit any time he likes. And Jack can tell him what is inside of anything with stuffing........ don't ask how! :)

    Gus, Louie and Callie

  17. Oh no not the blue monster! ahhhhhh

  18. Okay, boys -

    I believe you gotta great chance at the World Synchronized Dog Napping championship.

    Remember the old saying, when the tourist asked, how do you get to Carnegie Hall, the answer from the native New Yorker was practice, practice and practice.

    Fundamentals looks good and basics are easy but it may take lotsa years to finally make the big time.

    Keep up the training day after day, week after week and I'll always be ....

    Ever in your corner, I remain,



  19. You look like identical twinsies!
    We bet the two of you will ace any synchronized event that you enter!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

    PS So what ARE couch cushions stuffed with? Please give us your full report, Monty. Thank you for being a super investigator ;-)

  23. I gave you a blog award from Macy's Puppy Tales, check it out!

  24. That is one adorable blue monster:) And tell Monty we don't understand why the humans think we are the ones responsible for examining those cushions - it was the squirrels.
