I have had two visits with grammy in her care home since the last time I woofed. Last visit, one of the residents looked at me and held out his arms and started petting me. "There is my buddy", he said. "You are such a nice doggie! What is your name?" The momma responded, "Buddy". The resident just smiled and said, "That is the perfect name because you are everyone's buddy". As soon as momma opens the main doors in grammy's facility, I make a beeline for her room. I know exactly which one it is and I can't wait to see her.
Mom has been working lots out in her garden and as usual, I have been supervising. She has lots of pretty flowers this year.
Now I like to dig in that wildflower garden. For some reason this is not acceptable to momma! I mean really, she can dig in there so why can't I?
The one bad part about summer is the bugs. The ticks really haven't been that bad this year, but the tent caterpillars were really bad.
Of course, no summer would be complete without mom being bitten by horseflies.

As usually we have had our share of wildlife show up either in our yard or we have seen them during our walks.
I know I will be going to see grammy again pretty soon, and that means I have to have another bath. Personally I love water especially when it is in the ditch, or the river or a mud puddle, but put it in the bath tub and I am not a fan. Oh well, it will all be worth it, because I will get to see grammy!
Until next time, and who knows when the momma will sit down again and update my blog, take care all!
