The Swimming Hole

In real life puppies aren’t allowed to come here, so we’ve found a way around the rules!

As long as it’s not a bath, I’m game.

The New Restaurant

It is a dark time. Across the state, businesses have been shut down for want of customers. So many restaurants have closed that underground, speakeasy-style eateries have popped up away from the watchful eyes of health department.

The boys’ beloved Sniff City has become….(Dun…dun…duhhhhn)… Hellmont.

My idea is better. No MINE is! Mom!!
Which of us has the best name for our new restaurant?
My idea's the best. It's the Diarrhea Trattoria!
Wait, does this place serve or cause diarrhea? Your choice! Oh dear, are those raisins and Tootsie Rolls on the bar? Well, at one time...
Forget about him. It's my idea that's the best.
It's the Copra...CopraphaGIa! The hottest spot for diarrhea! At the Copra,CopraphaGIa..Poopin' and noshin' are always in fahshion...Fashion? Yes, dahling...
Do you really think anyone will want to eat here? How is your dessert menu? Do you serve Poopsicles or Fudge Dragons? I'd like a meal to help me clear a room. I need assistance with my abstract expressionism.

Not that dogs eat poo or anything…

Well, only if it’s there.

Chewy has been rewarding customers with surprise paintings of their beloved pets. So many people would like to request having a portrait of their pets done, yet Chewy does not put them in touch with staff artists. If you would like a similar but legally distinct picture of your beloved pet, come visit my shop at L. Bowman Studios.

Tumbleweeds

Ew! For heaven't sake woman, have some shame! What? I've been in quarantine almost a year. Nobody sees me.
So we're not "somebody"? For the purposes of this argument, no.
Why is it acceptable that you guys are all furry and not me? 'Cause we're adorable.
Two Cairn terriers pant in the sun.

See? I told you we were adorable!

Latin

Mommy has been teaching me stuff. She said that in Latin, we are called Puppius Doggus Atthey oesn'tday oundsay ightray.

When I was in school, the students approached administration and asked for Latin courses. The faculty said “No”. This is what happens when you don’t teach young people Latin.

Mommy also refers to me as Stinkius Buggus. I don’t get no respect.

Boots

Mommy’s boots and puppies’ boots

After a day of play.

They go with us on our ADventures

and then by the door they stay.

Climbing hills, breaking trails,

They go wherever we go.

We take them off when we say goodnight

And dream of more days of snow.

Two puppies make snow angels in a snow bank.
Two puppies look at their snow angels. One is an angel, the other one a devil.

Ooh, tough break Toby.
