Special Message for Rosie

Hi Rosie, it's me, Daisy!! I just wanted to wish you a very Happy Birthday!! 
My mom made a really pretty Angel Food cake and was going to take my picture by it for your birthday. Well, they had a few slices and then went outside to watch the fireworks.  Luckyily, they left the rest of the cake out for me! Even though it was on the counter, I have enough puppy in me to get up there. 
Yep, I cleaned the plate up after in case you were wondering. Aloha��

Summer Reading with Daisy: "Bark, George"

This week, I am bringing you a book that is sure to inspire non-talkers like myself.  Bark, George is written and illustrated by Jules Feiffer.  I love the story and the pictures of the little pup, George, are darling!
George's mom tells him to bark.  Instead of a 'woof', an animal sound comes out of his mouth!  Here, George says "Meow" (that's for you, Madi).
Poor George's mom gets so frustrated with him.  He just keeps talking in farm animal speak, not dog.  Here he says, "oink". His mom decides to take him to the vet.
Thankfully, none of our dog-tors stick their hands down our throats and pull out a PIG!  Poor George had all of these animals inside of him!  No wonder he couldn't bark!
There's a little twist at the end because George then says...
Hahahahaha - I bet you can guess what happened!  Wouldn't it be fun to talk in different animal languages?!

Liquid Sunshine

The skies turned dark then we heard the thunder! 
We went in the courtyard...
...where 87 drops of liquid sunshine fell!
Just enough to make the furs damp. 
We'll take any water we can get!!

Summer Reading With Daisy: The Day The Crayons Quit

Hey Everyone! It's me, Daisy!  I'm back with summer reading every Wednesday.  I have a whole stack of books to tell you about.  First up, The Day The Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt.  We know crayons all quit on the last day of school, but this isn't a story about summer vacation.  The story starts off with Duncan (!!!) getting a stack of letters...from his crayons!  
Each crayon wrote a letter to Duncan.  They talked about how they aren't used enough, are his favorite, are only used for holidays and firetrucks (red), which is the real color of the sun (orange or yellow), and how they are happy with their career so fat (green).
Poor beige.  He's tired of being second place to Brown because Brown gets all the puppies, bears, and ponies. Beige just gets wheat and maybe a turkey dinner.  I need to have a talk with Beige...he's missing out on drawing a lot of Wheatie puppies!  Beige would be used all the time for drawing me!!!!
This is the funniest part of the book in my opinion.  Peach is NAKED!  Hahahahaha!  Poor Peach had it's clothes torn off and is now too embarrassed to leave the box.  We all know crayons like Peach.
On the last page, Duncan honored all the crayons' request and created a masterpiece.
This is such a creative book and really makes you think about the crayons in your box.  The illustrations by Oliver Jeffers make you really relate to the crayons' emotions.  We know you'd want to color a masterpiece, too, after reading this story!

Dog Fair

What better way to kick off summer than with a fair...a dog fair!!!  There was so much to take in. Daisy was very intrigued by the agility dogs. 
They had lots of community booths to visit. We were so surprised to see a beautiful falcon! We have lots of them since we back up to a wilderness park. 
They also had Jerry's Dogs (hahaha) for the peeps. Daisy thought they smelled sooooo good. 
We even got a goody bag full of treats!
We think this is going to be an annual event for us!
