Guest Behavior

Our new friend Mary took some fun photos of us the other weekend when we had dinner at their campsite. 

2011-07-15_22-51-38_949First, she got a photo of me.  I was too busy keeping an eye on the shadows that were moving under their camper to look at the camera. 

I got to sit with everyone there for at least a little bit.  It’s good to be the wee one. 

And don’t you think Mama should do these Mommy & Me outfits more often?!

2011-07-15_23-01-11_775Of course, the Queen/DIVA/Sissy got jealous and had to have her moment too.  Mama tells her regularly she’s not a lap dog, but somehow, with all of Mama’s laughter, Sis doesn’t get the message.  Imagine.

She’s QUITE a lapfull, isn’t she?  Mama was a little afraid Sis would tip them both over.  Note though that the woman has skills; my leash is still in her other hand.

2011-07-15_22-59-40_407Once wasn’t enough for Sis.  A little later, my little PANK leash still in hand, Sis climbed up again.  THIS is just one example of why they call her a mountain goat!  For a dog that fancies herself a DIVA and somehow has everyone calling her Queenie and/or THE Queen now too, she sure is a mess.  Of course, the world is her throne, so…  I guess she’s on to something, huh?

Hope you’re having a good week.  It’s so hot we’ve missed walks, and when they do happen, it’s late in the evening.  Hrmph.  I hear that down where Wondervet and our Auntie Bec-bec and her family live, it’s been over 100 for nearly a month straight.  That’s just crazy!

Happy Dogs on humans Thursday!

    Super cute post. You and the wee one look adorable in your matchy matchy pink get ups and yes The Queen might be a bit big to be a lap dog, but since Beau thinks my lap is his – I’m not one for talking. g

    […] first, to lighten things up, pop over to the girls’ blog and see their silliness at my expense. Isn't their beach logo […]

    Thought we decided Sissy was pretending to be a mountain goat…you know, you could start singing, “Climb Every Mountain.” You could start a new group, The DeTrop Singers of Haddon Woods.

    Awww, great pics, very sweet – nice to see the whole family. Mom says she is really glad we aren’t lap dogs. The most we ever want to do is put our furry heads in her lap OR on her laptop.

    YOu grrls are always up to something! Matchy outfits would be cute…but our mom won’t wear just a collar…:-)

    Woofs! Sasha and Misty

  6. Sue Says:

    Since all my dogs except Tsar consider themselves lapdogs, I can sympathize.

  7. Mango Says:

    Gretchen, I have to say that your sissy looks like kind of a load to be sitting in mom’s lap.

    Did you ever find out what was under the camper?

    Cute photos. Hilarious that Sissy thinks she’s a lap dog!!

  9. KittyplusCoco Says:

    We are loving Sis crawling up in the seat like that! Hilarious. Fair is fair, right? We know a Dane named Sweet Baby that does that too. No concept of not exactly being a lap dog.

    Those are really great photos! I love how focused Gretchen is! I don’t think of Sissy as very big until I see her trying to be a lap dog 🙂

  11. Bubblesknits Says:

    Oh my Lord! I didn’t realize how big Sis was until I saw that picture! She’s a house pony! Love all the pictures of y’all together. 🙂
