So Sorry!

Well, Mommy went out of town, and she took the computer, so we couldn't blog. She was gone for 2 whole weeks, and then she and Daddy had the nerve to go out of town AGAIN! And they actually spent time with (gasp) another dog! It was our cousin dog, but still. We wanted to go! So, what's been going on with us lately? Not too much. Eloise is doing super on her new medicine, and Sassy just keeps getting bigger. She has her big girl collar on now! Yeah, Sassy!

So, Sassy has been eating tons, but she's been playing tons, too. She has a hard time putting the toys down when she eats, so she decided to start putting her toys in her bowl while she eats.

See?


She has gotten so big.



We baked Daddy a birthday cake. It's pretty awful looking, but Mommy and Daddy said it tasted just fine. We didn't get to have a bite. Some birthday. :(


Sassy has been playing a lot in her baby pool. She's almost too big for it!

Eloise is still perfect. Of course. :)


Sassy was wiped out after a hard day!



Eloise wanted nothing to do with us after we had company.

Sassy chewing on what she's supposed to chew on.


Sassy chewed on something she wasn't supposed to chew on. Thanks, Sass.


Sassy is OBSESSED with these windchimes!


On guard duty! What was that??


We were very happy to see Mommy when she got home. Sassy even jumped in her suitcase! She doesn't really fit, though! Just so you know, this is one of those big suitcases!


Our Cousin Luca.


Mommy and Daddy not hanging out with us. :(


Mommy and Daddy's nephew. Our cousin! We love him!

Eloise Update

Well, we haven't figured out what's wrong with Eloise's head, but they have diagnosed her with congestive heart failure due to a newly developed heart murmur. She goes to get her medication on Monday. Bad day for Eloise, :(

BUT, on a much happier note, it's Daddy's birthday!!!! Happy Birthday to the best Daddy in the World!!! We love you Daddy!

We've Been Busy!

We have been so busy lately! Mommy started a new job, so she's been a little stressed and tired. We've been trying to cheer her up by being adorable, and I think you'll agree that we did an excellent job! Daddy's parents also came to visit us, and we LOVE it when we get to see them. They like to play with us and give us treats. They didn't bring their dog, Baby, because Baby's been sick. Poor, Baby! Daddy has been busy helping Mommy more around the house and cooking dinner to help her at night. We're all pitching in to help - and here are some pictures we took to show what we've been doing! The Soileau household is a real team, and we pitch in TONS! Thank goodness we're here!

Here is Sassy playing with her vanilla bone. Mommy and Daddy like these bones because they make our breath smell like cupcakes! We like them because we can chew on them and not get in trouble (Sassy's note to dog: DO NOT CHEW ON THE WINDOWSILL ANYMORE - oops!).


Mommy and Daddy have had this flower for a LONG time. The Patterson grandparents gave it to Eloise a long time ago, but she only likes soft toys and never played with it! When Sassy saw it, she looooooved it! Here is Sassy playing with a flower. She might be a tough dog, but she's all girl underneath! She loves flowers!




And Eloise has been extra silly lately. She jumped up on the couch and burrowed into Daddy's shorts! Mommy and Daddy looked over at her, and they couldn't stop laughing. No one could tell if she did it by accident or on purpose, but it sure made the night fun. Mommy and Daddy are still laughing about it!








Sassy harasses Eloise constantly. Eloise sits on the back of the chair regularly now to avoid Miss Sassy. If you look closely, you can see Sassy's head on the chair. Mommy and Daddy don't let Sassy on the furniture, so she just puts her front paws on the chair. Mommy and Daddy fuss at her for that, but she still does it. She's a rascal! In all fairness to Sassy, she's not technically on the furniture if her back legs are on the ground, right?? Anyway, Eloise camps out up here a lot now to avoid the puppiness of Sassy.


Here's a funny picture of our Ivanyisky grandparents! We love ya'll!


Sassy had to go get her latest round of shots on Saturday, and she already weighs 46 pounds! She's going to be really big!! She's been extra silly since she's gotten bigger. Mommy was taking a bath the other night, and Sassy jumped in the tub with her! She's so silly! But Mommy should have known that Sassy likes water, so we blame it on her. It was really funny. Just look how big this girl has gotten! Mommy and Daddy keep saying that she doesn't look like a puppy anymore and that she looks like a dog. We think they are confused because Sassy's always been a dog.




On a serious note, little Eloise has some big medical tests coming up on Wednesday. Mommy took her to the vet with Sassy on Saturday, and they kept feeling around on her head. Mommy has been watching a place on Eloise's head for a week or so because she thought it was just a knot on her head. Well, the vet was a little concerned because the bump is so close to Eloise's eye, so Eloise has to have x-rays done on Wednesday. They also discovered a heart murmur. We're all keeping our fingers crossed that our little Eloise is just fine, but we could use all of the good doggie thoughts over the next few days. We love you, Eloise! We'll let you know how it goes on Wednesday!

Sassy and Eloise - Saturday

Hi! Eloise here! I just wanted to show everyone what Sassy does to me. Here I am sitting outside enjoying the summer sun. I'm not bothering anyone, see?


And then Sassy shows up. Gah! And Mommy and Daddy keep telling her what a good girl she is. I don't get it. I tell them when I need to go outside, and they let me out. When SHE says SHE needs to go out, they jump up, open the door, and run outside with her. Mommy and Daddy keep telling me that I was like that when I was little, but I don't remember that. Don't all dogs know that they need to go outside?? Here is Sassy ruining my wonderful moment outside and totally being a camera hog. She's getting so much taller than me!


Sassy got a big girl bowl today. She was eating from bowls on the floor, but she wasn't eating as much as she should, so Mommy and Daddy bought her bowls that are up in the air. But she's not the only one that got something new! I got a new collar!!!! It's bright red and beautiful! Thanks Mommy and Daddy!

Very Sad Road Trip

So, Mommy and Daddy were very sad this weekend. They had a very close family friend pass away. It was our grandmother's best friend. We can't imagine what that would be like. Daddy grew up with Mrs. Nancy's kids, so he's very sad too. We wanted to cheer him up, so we decided that we should go to Louisiana with him and Mommy. We can make anyone smile! So, here are a few pictures of us on our road trip. Isn't Sassy getting so big???


We were up VERY early (for Eloise) to get ready to go!


We piled up in the car and we drove for a VERY LONG TIME! Mommy and Daddy kept telling everyone how good we were on the trip. Their dogs must be really bad! We knew Mommy and Daddy were sad, so we tried to be extra good!


Sassy is too big for the loaner kennel, but this is the only one that would fit in the car!


Mommy fed us when we got there - we were obviously STARVING!!! :)


On the way home! Mommy and Daddy had a very sad morning, and then they went to the family's house to eat a HUGE amount of food. They were very sleepy, but we made it home! Daddy's the best driver. We stopped alot to walk around! Oh, and it rained that day. :(


These are our Ivanyisky grandparents! They were sooooo nice to us. We got puppy biscuits! They have a dog named Baby, but Mommy forgot to take a picture of her. She didn't like it when we started growling and playing with each other!


We really like this picture of Mommy and Daddy.

We were so glad that we could be there to make Mommy and Daddy and our grandparents smile this weekend. We know they needed it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sassy Frassy in the Pool!

Here's a video of Sassy in the baby pool we bought her. She goes crazy when she gets out! Eloise isn't a big fan of the pool - she's so above that! Sassy is getting so big!

Welcome Baby Walker!

Hi all! We're so excited today! We finally saw a picture of the newest addition to the Dean family! Baby Walker is ADORABLE! Eloise can't stop smiling, and Sassy is smiling in her own little way. Mom and Dad's friends in Louisiana had their first baby over the weekend. Congrats ya'll! See how happy we are???? (our eyes look a little funny - that flash was WAY bright!).

Caught Up!

Ok, so in the last 2 posts, we tried to get you up to speed with what's going on with us. These are recent pictures of us. We're buddies now. Sassy likes to harrass me a little more than I would like, but Mom and Dad make her leave me alone when she gets out of hand. Mom left Sassy alone for ONE SECOND, and you see what happened! We're really going to have to watch her!

Pals


More Tug of War. Our favorite game!


Sassy gets Busted!
Ok, so now you're all caught up on our life! We've been together for 3 weeks, and we're still getting used to each other, but I think we're going to be best friends!
Thanks for stopping by!

Road Trip!!!

I got to go to the beach over Memorial Day. I made lots of new friends at the beach, but I missed Eloise. I made dog friends, big and small, and people friends. I didn't even know that I liked water, but I thought it was fun jumping over the waves. Mom didn't get any pictures of me in the water. I hope I can go back one day so that I can actually get pictures of me in the water to share with you!

So, Mom and I hopped in the car and drove to St. Simons, GA. It's my favorite beach town! Mom's friends from high school, Kate and Cori (twins!), met us there. Kate's dog Lou came. He's crazy! He chases tennis balls! I'm going to do that one day. I was pooped from the swim, so I had to take a nap while they played. Here are my favorite pictures from the trip.


Here's a picture of me being well behaved in the car. I'm so good!


I'm on the beach!


Whoa! Mirrors.


There's Lou! Miss you Lou!!!


Mommy couldn't find me. She got worried. I was just taking a nap!


I took another nap. I sure love the beach!


As much as I like the beach, I was glad to get home and play with Eloise again!!!
