Tuesday Talk

It's Tuesday and we have some things to share:


When Mom was preparing Dakota's slideshow, she found a great photo that she wanted to enter in the Sugar-riffic Photo Contest. Before we came to live with Mom and Dad, they had a wishing well in their yard. Dakota loved to climb on it and one day this is how they found her.


Ding, dong, dell,
Husky's in the well.

Dakota was her name.
And fun was her game.

(Mom says not to worry - it had a false bottom - what's that mean?)

And Thunder thought he might submit his photo for the Rocky Creek Scotties Tongue Contest.


Lastly, we wanted to thank Tank for his latest OWAS Assignment. He has promoted Dakota to OWAS Regional Commander. She will be in charge of squirrel control north of the Rainbow Bridge. Knowing her strong distaste for those pesky critters, we are sure she is quite proud of her new role.

That's it for Tuesday Talk.

Woos, Thunder and Phantom

What is a false bottom? That is very confusing.

Dakota was very silly, I must say.

That looks like a fun place to play! Great photos! We are shocked - do they actually let squirrels in, North of the RB? We know Dakota will get any that slip by!

What great photos, I need to get mom on it if I am going to make any of these deadlines for all these contests. MOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Princess Eva and Brice said...

I've heard that the squirrels at the Bridge are slower! or maybe the huskies are faster? Either way, we know that Dakota will keep the area squirrel-free.

That photo of Dakota in the well is priceless.

At least Thunder looks normal in his photo of the tongue. We only posted Cameron's to give folks a laugh. Figured everyone needs one by now. But maybe the Rocky Creek Scotties will take us seriously and enter his name.

Lorenza said...

Your tongue picture is great too, Thunder!
Kisses and hugs

Hugs to all of you.
