Ivy's "Pet" Project is working!

We picked up a Labload of supplies from our Village Hall that the kind folks in our neighborhood of West Neck donated to  Ivy's Pet Project to benefit the Virginia Beach SPCA. Check me out checking out all the cool stuff in our truck before it headed down to the shelter!

Life ain't bad when the humans are away....

It's been a week since the humans left for California and Iris and I are living a dog's life here at Camp Pepter. We pretty much get fed on time and it's been a bit warm outside, so I have been catching up on my napping during the day. When the kids get home, things can be a little hectic but it's all good as they get snacks and we are the beneficiaries of the droppings. Or, I can put on my cute Labby look....that ALWAYS works with kids and adult humans. I have been working on my barking when the doorbell rings but, I just can't help myself! WOOF WOOF!!!

Our bags are packed.......

....and we are off to hang with Pete, Madonna, and the grands while the parental units get on an airplane and fly to a place called California. The Mom says it is way too far for me and Iris to travel with them and besides they will be gone most of the time tasting wine and touring around different places of interest. She says they will see the Pacific Ocean, and of course I LOVE the ocean but maybe they will feel guilty enough on their return to take me and Iris to see our very own Atlantic Ocean.What is Iris LOOKING FOR?!!

Iris discovers the joys of.......KONG!!

It took my sister a while, but she finally got it! KONGS ARE AWESOME!! She is not nearly as adept as moi, but I have had many, many years of practice. I can dissect one in about 2 minutes, but Iris was occupied for about thirty minutes with a Kong stuffed with string cheese, carrots, a broken milkbone, and peanut butter. KONGS RULE!!

Sorry, sportsfans, no pics for this post because it was under the cover of darkness that this event happened! The Mom and the Dad let us out for the last pee of the day yesterday. And.....tada!! They opened our back gate out to the golf course beyond and let both us Labs out! Usually, it is only moi because Iris is well........not very obedient at times. But, Mom slipped off the leash, and Iris took off! She dashed across the golf course like a banshee! And stopped suddenly and started rolling in the grass. Now, when I do a roll, it is usually in excrement of some description. So, I knew Mom was a bit worried. But, her worries were unfounded for Iris was rolling in the grass with sheer joy at just being UNLEASHED!! And then, wonder of wonders, Iris came back when called! Maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks!!

My humans volunteered at the SPCA today!

and they came back smelling like this spotted dog!! His name is Beepo and he is about the same age as Iris and me (8 years old). He is at the SPCA because his humans had health problems of their own and could no longer take care of him. Beepo has some ear issues, but other than that, Mom says he seems ok. He was excited to go outside and peed a lot.....remember he is in a kennel all day long! He loved being petted and walked.  I sure hope he finds a furever home soon!!! See his awesome smile!!
Sad update: Beepo waits at the Rainbow Bridge....Godspeed, Beepo.

Walk, walk, walk

FINALLY,  a decent walk! I guess because it has been so doggone HOT we have been cooped up like a pair of doggone chickens! But, the parental units got off their hairless butts and walked us for about 1.5 miles!! I am loving life today!!! And, so is Iris......PLUS we got to go for a RIDE!!!
