Coffee, Grandmas, and BARKBOX

Hi pals!

So my amazingly awesome weekend. It started on Friday when no one's alarms woke us up. That's when I knew that day was going to be special. Once finally did wake up, we had family snuggle time in the big bed. I love the big bed so much. Why I'm not allowed up every night I'll never know.

After snuggles, we were off adventuring! There is a coffee shop near Dad's work place that lets puppy dogs come in! They even keep treats behind the counter for us. Another puppy dog was already there when I came in and she (he? I didn't get a good look) REALLY wanted to meet me and I like to play hard to get, so his (her?) person had to take her (him?) outside. We both still got treats though. My people had stopped at the drive-thru on the way since this place doesn't really have anything for breakfast. The weather was nice enough for them to enjoy food and coffee outside. I even got a few pieces...of course. Unfortunately Mom forgot her phone in Dad's car, so no pictures of that part.

After breakfast, we went for a walk downtown. All of the smells were so smellful! I had to sniff every single one. And then pee on them. I was kinda tired by the time we made it all the way back to the car!

Courthouse smells are the best!

And no one could make me not add my own smells!

When we finally got home, Mom gave me the best news ever: Grandma and Grandpaw were coming to visit! Hooray! They brought that Emma thing with them. But I played nice with her and Grandma brought me treats.

Grandpaw and Dad and Mom worked on some projects outside and while they were working, I got a package! My BarkBox arrived! My Twitter pals have been raving about them, so I finally convinced Mom to get me one. It is AMAZING!!!!!! I'm now trying to talk Mom into a full subscription, but so far she's being cheap. I'll do another post on all the awesome things inside.


On Saturday, Dad made everyone pancakes, so of course he made me and Emma extras. He wouldn't do my usual plate since he wasn't sure if Emma was allowed or not. I made the sacrifice though. Pretty sure that bought me extras later!

Me and Emma. No we're not actually related even though she looks (and acts) like my little sister.

After breakfast, I got another great surprise! My other grandma and grandpaw were coming! And they were bringing Great-Grandma and Great-Grandpaw! And no other puppy dogs! They meant to come in to celebrate Mom's and Uncle R's birthdays, but no one had free weekends. Everyone went out to lunch and left me and Emma all alone. I didn't like that. But Grandmas gave me treats, so it's OK.

Then Sunday was Easter and you've already read about what I got to do!

And that's why this was the most amazingly epically awesome weekend ever!

P.S. Keep up the prayers for Ms. Sandi. She finished her first week of chemo and it was hard on everyone, especially her. But her counts are good. I don't know what that means, but Mom says it's good!


  1. What a great weekend you had. Hope you enjoyed your box of goodies. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
