I’m sorry you haven’t heard from me for a while, but this summer has been nothing but crazy. Sammie has had one houseguest after the other. Of course, I’m the main draw. They all really come to see me. I haven’t broken this news to Sammie, and she hasn’t figured it out yet, so it will just be our secret. Take this past week. Sammie’s niece came to visit with her hubby and their three kids. They come every summer and I’ve developed quite a good relationship with the kids. The boys are nice but Claire, the four year old is my best buddy. She follows me around, pets me and basically hugs the life out of me. I just go with it and enjoy all the love coming my way. It is the least I can do for my biggest fan. I should get extra points though because I listened to her Disney Princess songs three times and danced with her. They’re a fun bunch and the kids are my kind of kids – sloppy eaters – need I say more?
A few weeks back Sammie’s Philly girls she grew up with came for a week. She calls them friends. I call them the biotches. The draw of the beauty of Rhode Island and the opportunity to get away from their families has them coming back every year. I tend to hide when they’re around. The decibel level in the house goes up about ten notches. Between them all talking at once and the loud music, I am sure I’m going to need doggie hearing aids in my future. Hun was out of town – smart man. I was happy when that big van they come in pulled out of the driveway. I’m sure the owner of the local liquor store was in tears though.
The best part of having all the company for me is I get to go to the doggie spa before they arrive. Not that I need to look better. Who can improve on perfection? I must admit however, I love a good pampering. We are talking bath, hair, nails and I even get a little massage. I wish Sammie had company all year round just for the spa days alone.
I know everyone is sad summer is winding down, but I’m looking forward to the cooler weather. It is tough having a fur coat in the heat.
