I Scream...You scream...We all Scream....

For Ice-Cream!!! Are you screaming??
When we were at the BAR, the doods and their Mom and Dad, Yam, Mom and me went for Ice-cream. This idea was sounding great to me. Mom got this HUGE 2 scooper and it was enough for us to share but don't worry we didn't share until the end, cuz for some crazy reason...she isn't a fan of sharing a licked doggie spoon back into her ice-cream cone. Moms!! I mean...we are family right??
 Let me tell you...I thought I died and went to Heaven!!! Talk about YUM!!!!
 And the cone too....
Hey Mom....Hows about you just give me that whole cone...and let me finish it off and she did!! So....if you ever get to go to a Ice-cream shop..GO..its totally Awesome!!
 Plus Yam had her 1st Root beer ever while she was at the BAR since she doesn't eat Ice-cream!!! and know what? She loved it!!

As the Corn Grows

Back here in the Midwest we have gorgeous corn. It grows super tall and its always fun to watch the corn grow. So we thought that we would do a "As the Corn grows" series. We will take pictures of the corn, measure the height, see it until it is "White unto harvest" and through the season.
(We will be going to the same spot each time)

June 23rd: The rule is: Knee high by the 4th of July.
We guessed that it was about 3 ft now. So it is growing ahead of schedule.
June 29th:  
We went to check out the corn, this time with our measuring tape.
Now it is a little over 4 ft tall (50 inches)
July 4th:  Ok...So now the corn is getting HUGE!!!
Double Bam!!!! A good 58-60 inches almost 5 ft tall. So much for ft high by 4th of July.
You can hardly see the trees like in the corn picture earlier.
We think its gonna be an awesome year for corn....I'm just sayin....
July 12th: The corn is now 90 inches!! Can you believe that?
And.....No sight of the trees anymore!! Its growing like crazy!!
August 24th: Its been awhile since we checked the corn due to Mom working and they were on vacation. Man!!!! Its growing like crazy. Its 95 inches tall now.
It's getting tassels now and the tips are starting to look golden.
And we saw lots of ears of corn. Fresh corn and fresh popcorn is soooo good!!
The corn will keep getting golden. We will watch it until it is ready to harvest. The cornfields are sooo beautiful.
An old farmer friend of Moms used to make popcorn. He either dried it on hanging on the ear for a few weeks or broke off the corn and then dried it. Mom says it was delicious.
Sept. 28th: Corn update. Its been so pretty being green but it is starting to dry out and turn brown.
We saw lots of ears of corn. They look pretty cool.
Still somewhat green. When my family was in Kansas...they were harvesting their corn. Ours shouldn't be too far behind.
October 25th: Addi  here for the corn update.
Here's an inside look
Still just a tad green
It is so pretty as its golden. We are just waiting for the farmer to do his harvesting.

Corn Maze Party

I am going to have a Corn Maze Party when the corn is ready. I thought of this after I found that I can wander through the corn.
Mom says they cut it in patterns and we have to get through it to the end.
It sounds like a blast. If you wanna come just let me know  in the comments. I will let you know when we have a date .

The Birthday Celebration

On Saturday at the BAR....we had a Surprise party for the Doods mom, Carol. She always wanted one and my mom loves planning parties. We went on a scavenger hunt and had her walk back blindfolded...
 and when she took off the blindfold.......SURPRISE!!
I don't think she fully realized it at first but it didn't take long and she was really surprised. She had a table full of 60 item things from you all and a nice scrapbook of birthday pictures and messages. Me and Mom want to say Thanks to all of you for getting them to us. It meant so much to her. You guys Rock!!
After gifts came time for the Candles. 60 of em to be exact and don't worry...I had forest ranger guys on standby!!! hehehe
Man!! Does that lady have some kind of wind or what??
Yup....thats right...She actually blew ALL 60 candles out in one swoop!!
She bout blew my furs right off!! Seriously!!!
Hope that you enjoyed your Birthday...You old lady!!! BOL

At the BAR

Took us all of about 6 1/2 hrs to get there. It rained about 3/4 of the time and my mom isn't a fan of driving in the rain but we made it safe and sound. I had met Stanley and Murphy at my house and when we got to the Red Roof Inn..I met Dory and Arty. That went pretty well.
Later on Casey and Jessie arrived at the hotel.
Mom doesn't know what happened but guess that I felt like a BIG dog in a little body so...I decided to take these 2 boxers on with my Scottie-tude!!I started with Jessie and  I said.."Bring it"!!
Know what she did?
She brought it!!
Pretty soon...Casey was protecting Jessie and before long there was gnashing of teeth...major growling...and biting going on!! None of us were backing down!!
I was getting scolded and their mom took them on a long walkie!!
Frankly...They intimated me just a tad but....Dont tell them that Ok?
I learned NOT to mess with the boxers anymore. The next day at the park was perfect...We actually all 3 got along. From then on..I mingled like a good boy and made some great friends.
 NO way!! I wasnt gonna mess with Zaphod!! just a good Hi-ya!!
It was a fun with making new friends. Casey and Jessie and I did get along the rest of the time. For the people that met me at the BAR probably would never imagine that I would have taken on 2 boxers but Yah...I did!!! Crazy huh??

We had the Memorial ceremony which YaYa did wonderful on. It was nice to remember those that passed on and cute and funny things about them. It was very special. YaYa also did the friendship ceremony with all the friends that couldn't be there but were there via picture. I know you all saw the videos of them on the facebook page.
It was funny cuz we would all be chillin and when anyone would walk by the trail, all it took was one dog to see them, bark and then suddenly there was a choir of dogs all barking. We didn't know what we were barking at...just joining in. They would hear us all barking and they went the other way!!! BOL Guess we showed them. Mom just laughed every time that it happened.
Guess we all had Doggie-tude!!
