Oh Yawn....

Yawn. Mati here. It was another mean awful morning... I must stay in bed a little longer. Daddy's mean work place that keeps him prisoner from us calls him in the wee hours of the morning, breaking up my beauty sleep!

And then, there's Rocky. He moved to the family room where he could keep an eye out the back door in case something happens. See his hot spot on his right leg? Poor guy, I'm glad I don't have them!

Back to sleep. It’s so nice and quiet in the house in the morning. I think I might sleep until the afternoon. zzzzzz- Love Mati

Helllooo Daisy!

Rocky and Mati here giving a big welcome to our new friend and neighbor Daisy!

Daisy is a Australian Cattle Dog - Chow. Wow! What a cutie!

Dad only let us say hello from the door. Mati and I were singing a song.. and singing out loud --- hmmm, Sing, sing a song, Sing out loud, Sing out strong .... oh, sorry. Dad says I should Woof like a big boy instead of singing crazy like I do. Well, as it turns out, Mati does the woofing and I do the singing. Together we make quite the quadruped-duet :-)

Welcome again Daisy!

Wooooof! ;-)

Biscuit Time

There goes Dad asking Mati to hold a biscuit on her nose.

I just don't get it.

Dad was so surprised. She did this on her first try! Wake up Dad and get into the 21st Century and get a video camera! What a horrible video phone!

Well that's all for now. I have to say, it's not my cup of tea. I prefer to be handed the biscuit where I ever so gently accept it from your hand.

Bye for now!
Love Rock

On our walk this morning, we were escorted by a Robin. Robin decided not to fly anywhere, but to walk ahead of us instead. So we decided to follow her. Robin would hop hop hop ahead and then stop and look at us. Then, hop hop hop and stop again. See her hopping along on the curb...?

Hey Robin! Where are you going? We turn left here, we don't cross the street!

There you go, up the walk way...don't get too far ahead...

Hey, we keep going, where are you going now? Are you in that shrub on the ground?


Well, anyway, it was an exceptional walk this morning. Dad took us an additional block. He said the weather was good, so we wouldn't get too hot.

By for now! Rockstar

The USS Indianapolis

While Dad was in Cape Cod, he took this picture at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy. This is the mast from the USS Indiapolis.

On July 30, 1945, the USS Indianapolis sank after being hit by a Japanese sub. Of 1,196 men on board, approximately 300 went down with the ship. The remainder, about 900 men, were left floating in the water and were accidentally discovered 4 days later - only 316 survived.

This information was taken from

We remember all of those lost at sea

keeping busy...

Hey all... while Dad is busy, we have work to keep us busy.

First, here's Mati inspecting the underside of the sofa for dust bunnies... I think she's taking this job a bit too far...

And then we are on security detail... notice who's really doing his job, and who is ...*ahhem*, sleeping on the job!
