Today, we had to help MrSippi over the Rainbow Bridge and we know he was greeted by his best Friend, Carolina. He got very ill last night and Mom knew something was terribly wrong with the little boy. The vets said he had a terrible infection and he was in awful pain. It's very sad at our house today. Mom and Dad found MrSippi on the 4th of July, 2000, in a ditch on the side of the road overlooking the muddy Mississippi river near Guttenberg, Iowa. He either was thrown or fell out of a car and his little face was all messed up and the plan was take him back to Des Moines and to the local animal rescue league but on the way home, we fell in love with the little kitty who couldn't even eat because his face was smashed in from the accident. We miss you terribly my little boy!
No one told me that Australia is much much bigger than the state of Iowa but I finally made it to Huffle's home and we have a wonderful day together. Here we are just enjoying her beautiful back yard. It's quite lovely there.
We watched the birds on the telephone lines but we didn't try and catch them.
Good-byes are sad and my very dearest Huffle was sad when I said I had to head back across the ocean to my home in Iowa.
We such a great time, I promised to come back very soon and not to take a walk-about with kangaroos.
The Iowa State Fair ended yesterday after Thor and I did our agility demo last night so Mom took us over to check out the clean-up and we had a great time - Here's some pictures of what we found! Marco Polo
But Thor, it doesn't smell like a pig???
Why is everyone frozen and not moving?
I don't see any Corn Dogs, do you Thor?
These are really big Pumpkins, aren't they!
Quick, make a run for the flower tunnel, Mom can't catch us!
I can't believe Mom bought Mama along with us, I don't care if she is lonely with MrSippi on his trip to see Huffle.
I don't know why Mom won't let us water these flowers, we could really make them grow bigger, don't you think, Thor?
I just can't believe my darling Huffle is left all alone - I must find her! I'm sure there's a way around this silly little 6 foot fence surrounding the backyard. I will find a way my Dearest Girlfriend! Love to you, MrSippi
Mom took us to Nebraska earlier this month and we got to run agility at the Qwest Center. Thor proved he was more adult than Me and ran perfectly all weekend for Mom. I had way more fun as you can see from my run. Love, Marco Polo
Hello Everyone, You probably remember our walks at the fairgrounds and the beautiful flower garden where Mom always makes us walk nicely and not dig. Last week, the area gardeners were busy planting and we couldn't go into the garden so early this morning we got to see what they did! Here we are sitting nicely in the rose garden area.
And here's the hill of flowers that Mom likes so much!
Can you believe this? Mama came on the walk with us?
And then here's MrSippi playing with the bugs too.
WHOA! Little miniature horses! Mom said we would scare them because we were bigger than them! I begged Mom but she said No Way could we go inside of the barn!
Laughing our Heads Off. Mom said she had to go inside of this to call someone when she was young? Looks like a really big IPHONE to us!!
We hope everyone has a great weekend! Thor, Marco Polo, Mama and MrSippi
Well, We were hoping for some Q's in agility today but Thor decided to act like a true-blooded Siberian and was very very naughty. For everyone who was impressed with yesterday's agility run, prepare to laugh at today's runs!
We just finished our Friday walk when we found this new dog park. Of course, after our 5 miles we were really too tired to enjoy it but it's quite nice and Mom loves the 6 foot fence! It's really not really big but it was big enough for the two of us but sadly No Trees to mark!
Thor and Marco Polo
Look at us coming when our Mom calls us!
What did you find MP?
Wishing Everyone a great weekend! Thor and Marco Polo
