Guess who crossed this...
Because she wanted to leave a lasting impression...
Like the stars do at Grauman's Chinese Theater?
This Girl!

Our yard is now in phase two...repairing the irrigation. I always thought you just called it a sprinkler system, but everyone working in my yard calls it an irrigation system! It sounds like we're on a farm.  Daisy is just excited there are more holes in the yard for her to make bigger!

The pretty clouds and Daisy are trying to distract me from my sad dirt garden.

A Back To School Cold (BTSC) isn't so bad when I have such a wonderful nurse taking care of me. 
She naps when she thinks I should nap. 
Daisy checks to see if I have enough Kleenex or if it's time to bring some from the trash can. 
Daisy even brings me some healthy food, like a squeaky carrot.  
I stopped by the market today for some more medicine and came across this...
I still have no words.

Guten tag! It's me...Fräulein Daisy!  Ranger and I had a big date to Oktoberfest that Casey hosted!  I was so excited to go on my first date.  Ranger sent over my outfit because he knows I love to dress up for parties.  Didn't he do a great job?
Ranger picked my up in his cabrio auto.  We zoomed through the streets to beat the rush to the Beirgarten.
Prost! Mehr beir, bitte!  Everyone wanted more beer!  Some of the Blogville residents drank 87 beirs!!  Ranger and I laughed when they said, "Ohje. Bitte keinen Alkohol mehr!" (Please, no more alcohol!).  Ranger (isn't he HANDSOME) made sure they got some foodables from Chef Sasha.  We listened to the Oompah band and someone even did a little chicken dance!
Ranger belted out some "arrooos" (I was sooooooo impressed!) to gather everyone for the Vienna sausage  wiener schnitzel Dachshund races.
87 million people cheered on our friends!  Schnell laufen little doxies!!!
After the races, Ranger asked Reichst du mir bitte die Brezeln? ...Pass the pretzels...are you KIDDING!  Pretzels are my FAV-OR-ITE!  What a perfect way to end a perfect date.
Danke schön, Ranger, for such a lovely day.  Auf Wiedersehen!

It got down to 84 degrees today. We don't know what to do with ourselves after record breaking 105+ days! Daisy is so cold, she rolled herself up in blankets.

National Pet Memorial Day

If you read any of Blogville's posts today, you more than likely have some in common with all of us - we've loved and lost a member of our family.  Of course, I think about my Piper all the time.  This is the very first picture I ever took with an iPhone!  It was a really big deal at the time.  Poor Piper was so patient while I tried to figure out how it even worked.  We were shopping for toys - perferably with stuffing and squeakers because she had so much fun gutting in order to find the squeaker.

Piper joined a long line of mostly Scottie dogs that were part of our family...
Mr. Mac, Lady, Shasta (cocker), Muffin, Windy, Sarah (parakeet), Limie (parakeet), Tess, Biscuit (bunny), Shasta (wired hair fox terrier), Honey (bunny), Waddie (cockatiel), Tammy, Brynn, Moira, and 'the boys' (strawberry finches).

All around Blogville, we are remembering Greta from Idaho Pug Ranch.  She has so many awesome stories posted over there, but our favorite was the PugRanch Tavern.  That post had us cracking up!  We're laughing just looking at this picture.
Greta joins Jazzi, who introduced Daisy to tacos and Blogville, and our scottie friend Sammy who both very recently crossed the bridge.  We hope everyone in Blogville has happy memories of their family members today!
