Weekend Update and a Look Back

Maddy-- July 4, 2011

We had a fun 4th of July! 
We spent the day doing a few things around the house, buying firecrackers, going to the pool and taking Miss Muffy for walks.  Our sweet neighbors organized a little get-together which was wonderful and then we watched a fireworks show put on by their daring teen sons and other neighborhood kids.  How I remember fondly (HA HA HA) the days when my two boys were blowing things up!   Funny (and nice) how much less we spent on fireworks this year for Maddy as compared to the years with the boys at home! 

Muffy and Maddy -- July 2010

This time last year, we had just met our sweet pup Muffy. She was only about 8 weeks old.   Oh my, she was the most adorable of pups.  Funny how I have forgotten (not really) all the time I spent getting up during the night with her to take her out, protect her from opossums and urge her to go potty quickly.  Of course, those months passed by quickly (who am I kidding -- last summer was the longest ever!!) and now, she is the best little Scottie.  Have heard Scottie's described as little dogs with BIG personalities -- that fits her to a T!   She was a teensy 4 pounds when we met her last July and now full grown at almost 16 pounds.  She loves to be outside guarding the house and yard from naughty squirrels and rabbits.  She even caught a trespassing mouse a month ago!  Yay Muffy!

Muffy shares guarding the house duties with a ceramic Scottie!

Muffy and her best friend Maddy - July 2011
For some unknown reason, Muffy has taken a liking to sitting in this pot --weird, I know.  I think she may have buried a favorite treat in it known as a bully stick (chewy stick thing).  Maddy often asks if she is Muffy's best buddy?   The answer is a most definite yes!

Muffy and Maddie always make me smile. Precious pics. Your pup is rather lovely and I always have to hide your blog from Emma when you post Muffy pics. She wants a dog soooooooo badly.
