This was the best weekend ever! This weekend was Labor Day. I'm not sure what that means, but Mom and Dad got to stay home all day today, so I like it!  It also means it's time for Mom's family's annual reunion. My love for reunions has been well documented (reunions = suckers people to give me food).  This one was special though because I not only crawled in Grandma's lap and gave her kisses, but I snuggled up to Grand-paw and let him pet me. That's a big deal for me.

Here's me letting Grandma rub my ears

Mom was most proud of me for playing nice with the human puppies. As good as I am for new puppies, I don't always like ones that have been around longer. Once they start walking upright, it's all downhill. Only one was young enough to not know better and I was nice. I didn't really like when he chased me, but then we decided to run next to each other and that was not bad.

This is my grand-paw (Mom's dad), Mom's uncle Andy, and Mom's aunt Peggy. The chairs they're sitting in are now mine, well, Mom's, but they're in my house, so they're mine. And no, they are not for pee-mail! They belonged to Mom's great-grandma, so they're kind of special.  There's a picture they recreated with the chairs, too, but Mom decided to spare you that one :)

The one bad part about the weekend was that Mom's Tigers and Dad's (wild)Cats lost their football games. And by "football", I mean football. Not that soccer game you friends across the pond call football.

The other one bad part about the weekend was the hurricane we drove through to get home. That's right! A real, live hurricane! Mom said it's just the remnants of Hurricane Isaac that hit my pal Tiny's house and wasn't a hurricane anymore. Whatever Mom. You don't know. Luckily, there was no thunder. Only rain. And all the rain meant Grandma and Grandpaw stayed at my house an extra night! Yay!


  1. Oh wow, what a great weekend! Did you get hotdogs and hamburgers??!

  2. Labor Day is in memory of the Triangle Shirtwaiste Factory Fire

  3. Glad you had a lovely labour day weekend and that you were all safe during the storms. Have a great day.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. We don't get it either, but every buddy at home is the best
