Our trip to Bishop's Orchards Farm Market

Hi, everyone -
Do you remember when we did a post about Mama's birthday? Well, Mama, Papa, Anthony, Colleen and I went to Bishop's Orchard. We had a lot of fun that day. Here are some pictures:

Today is my 5th Birthday

Hi, everyone -

This is Kaci speaking. Today is my 5th birthday! My surrogate Mama made a mistake on one of our previous posts. This is actually our 100th post since we joined Blogger. Here is a picture of me sunning myself while visiting everyone in Connecticut.

Another trip to Mystic Seaport and Mama's birthday

Hello, everyone -
Recently Mama and Papa went to Mystic Seaport. The Charles W. Morgan is undergoing renovations. Here are some updated pictures:

The first picture is part of the inside of the ship and the second is a closer shot than the one previously taken in the spring.
Today is Mama's birthday and we are going to see a friend of ours. We are going to an orchard where there are llamas and a whole bunch of pumpkins - to mention a few things that we will find there.
Happy birthday, Mama!

A nice long weekend

Hi, everyone -
Mama had today off for a three day weekend. We had such beautiful weather and I got to play frisbee with Papa and went out for a walk with Mama on all three days. Here are some new pictures Papa took yesterday:
Petunias on our front porch

Sitting in the rocking chair supervising Papa

watering the plants

Can you tell that I was a little unhappy sitting in the rocking chair? I was perfectly happy supervising him on the porch. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

I was really naughty

Hi, everyone -

I (Hershey) was really naughty last week. Papa had the day off and we played frisbee and went swimming with Anthony and Colleen. Then Papa decided to go out on the boat before Mama came home from work.
After a while, Papa came home. He asked if I would "help" him take the boat off of the car. We went outside and I smelled something really goooooood. Our neighbors decided to discard remnants of their supper in their back yard so I went over the wall to investigate. Papa was not too happy and started calling for me.
Mama heard him and ran out of the house calling for me to come. I came back but I had a piece of meat and a bone in my mouth. Mama told me to drop it - well I thought it was a game and didn't listen to her. I ran with the bone to the other side of the house and almost ended up in the street. Mama was really unhappy with me and gave me a good "talking to." So I guess you could say that I have stolen some food.

Our visit in New Hampshire

Lady and Scooby's wedding

Hi, everyone -

Do you remember how sad Kaci and I were that we couldn't go to Myrna and Gilbert's wedding and that Rocky was sick before the wedding? We were able to go to Lady and Scooby's wedding and we met Rocky there. Here is a picture of us at the wedding:

We hope you like the picture. We also found out that Snickers got a visit from that seizure monster again so we will end this post and send her some paw hugs and healing kisses.

We FINALLY got the camera back

Hi everyone -

We finally got the camera back. Unfortunately, Kaci is back in New Hampshire so Papa, Mama and I don't have any pictures of Kaci with her new "hairdo." We will be going to NH in two weeks so we will have to get pictures then. Here is a new picture of me (Hershey):

We have reset our pictures to the largest size because the last four posts will not enlarge our photos on the medium size. Hopefully you will be able to enlarge this picture.

In Honor of Asta

Here are some pictures that Asta made. This is the birthday card that she made for me (Hershey) this year:

Here is the dogstar picture she made for Jackson when he was going to the vet for some tests:

Papa's camera is acting up

Hi, everyone -

Our digital camera is doing "bad" things. Papa sent it to the manufacturer to get it repaired for something under warranty. This is a picture taken before the camera was sent:

Here is a picture after the camera was returned:

Papa said some not so nice things because he has to return the camera to the manufacturer again. Mama is getting frustrated because blogger is being uncooperative as well. We found some pictures that Asta had sent. We will put them in our next post.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

P.S. We also got "new hairdos" but can't show you pictures because of no camera. What a bummer!

Happy 4th of July!

Thanks everyone

Hi, everyone -

We just wanted to thank everyone who left us nice comments when Bailey went to heaven last week. This has not been a good two weeks. We have lost several of our dogster pup pals and my grandma (Mama's mother) passed away seven years ago on June 24th.
We are glad to be a part of DWB.

RIP Bailey

Hi, everyone -

We are some sad pups today. Mama just found out that Bailey my Grandma's 14 year old golden retriever had to be put to sleep the other day. My older sister is definitely earning her wings this month.

We also found out that the dog Mama was trying to adopt last summer passed away from cancer over the weekend. But we are so grateful that he found a forever home even if it was for six months.

Here is a picture of Bailey taken at Christmas last year:

Here is the link to Geoffrey's dogster page:

Fort Griswold

Hi, everyone -

Does anyone remember this picture from last year?

steps inside Fort Griswold

A bird eye's view of Fort Griswold

Mama climbed the monument at Fort Griswold twice last weekend. The first time was Saturday and the second time was on Memorial Day.

The two pictures were taken last year. The first picture is inside the monument (166 steps to the top) and the second is one of many views of the fort from the monument. The top of the picture is New London (the town across the river from us) and if you enlarge the picture you can see General Dynamics on the left (a green building) where submarines have been launched. Mama says that my Grandpa (her father) worked there for almost 30 years. He is now retired for almost 20 years. We hope everyone had an awesome Memorial Day weekend.

Pictures at Mystic Seaport and Hershey's new haircut

Hi, everyone -

Papa downloaded the pictures from the camera. Papa and Mama are members of Mystic Seaport - a famous museum about ten minutes away from our home. Here are some pictures of the Charles W. Morgan a whaling ship undergoing renovations:

Happy Mother's Day, Grammy

This is Grammy, "Uncle" Tim and "Aunt" Marcy.
Uncle Tim will
be going into the
Air Force in a few days. He
will be doing boot camp in Texas.

This is my new haircut. Mama took all the pictures of me.

Do you like my new haircut?

It sure is a long way
back to Connecticut.
I don't want to walk home.

We hope you enjoy the pictures of our surprise trip to New Hampshire. Mama and Papa's wedding anniversary will be this weekend so I will see them all weekend.

A trip to New Hampshire for Mother's Day

Hi, everyone -
Papa, Mama and I went to New Hampshire for Mother's Day. We drove up that morning and came home that night because both Papa and Mama had to go to work the next day. We went up as a surprise for Grammy. We went to Papa's brother's house for a BBQ.
I also got a new hairdo. When Papa downloads the pictures from the camera Mama will post them so you can see how "beautiful" I look.

Mama made a BIG mistake

Hi, everyone -

Kaci and I wanted to let you know that we think it is so pawtastic when someone reaches an anniversary i.e. one year or gets to 100th, 200th or 300th post. However, Mama was so busy (or so she says) that she completely forgot that we have been on Dogs with Blogs for a little over a year now.
Mama deserves to get forty lashes with a wet noodle! What do you all think?
Love -
P.S. We are having another pleasant weekend in Connecticut (weather wise).

Update to Hershey's previous post

Hi, everyone:

Guess what? Mama found some more pictures of me as a puppy. Since she is partial to the first picture previously posted I (Hershey) demanded that she repost it. Here it is:

Aren't you glad I made her listen to me? Also a reminder, that clocks need to be set one hour ahead (unless you live in Arizona and maybe Indiana?).

Some of Hershey's puppy pictures

Hi, everyone -

Since this blog is all about Kaci and I Mama wanted to show you some of my puppy pictures. There has been too much sadness this week, so we hope this cheers you up a little. They were taken on my first day to my furever home in Connecticut. Here is the first picture:

Here is the second picture:

The last picture you may remember, we sent it to Abby when she and Chef did the autobiographies.

Mama and I apologize if the pictures are a little fuzzy. These were taken with Papa's cell phone instead of our digital camera. If you enlarge the first picture you may see that I had some brown stripes in my coat. Have a good weekend!
Love -
P.S. Mama is going to do a puppy picture post for Kaci, so stay tuned.
