Downhill weekend

 Our weekend started out with such promise.....Bella's Gotcha Day.  Treats and walks...

Then Saturday morning, the river, our friends....bath....treats.

But Sunday, after our early morning walk, SHE abandoned us!  SHE went to the Sheepdog Trials and we WEREN'T ALLOWED to go!

I mean we could have shown those dogs and sheep a thing or two.  Look how boring this is!
 And how pathetic is this?
He's just walking those sheep around.
 Or staring at them....
 Look!  They're just on a Sunday stroll...
 And a SLOW stroll at that!
 What's the point in that??!!!
 He's just walking them up to the pen.
 Tellin' them to get in.....and they just stand there.
 Finally, they're in!
 Talk about boring.  Bella, Roxy and I would have shown those sheep who's boss.  We would have had them running all around that paddock.  They wouldn't have known WHAT hit them!

But we weren't ALLOWED!  Sheesh!!

And as if being abandoned for most of the day wasn't enough.....
look what went passed our house this afternoon.

 The ICE CREAM VAN!  And we didn't get ANY!

Our weekend just went downhill.
Of course, we did get bones.
Maybe next week will be better.


  1. At least you got bones. Hi we are registering for class. Have a lovely Sunday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. No ice cream ! Incredible what you girls have to put up with.

  3. No ice cream AND being left at home??!?! What are they thinking? Hope tomorrow is a bit better for ya! :)

  4. Ice cream... Noooo!!! Come back, Van! You haven't taken our order yet.

    Indeed, next week will be a better day.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  5. looks like she had fun...but I bet yall would have been better with those sheep...Happy Gotcha day!!! darn no icecream...

  6. Do you girls need us to call the authorities for you?

    Sam and Pippen

  7. And to top it off, She didn't win any prizes at the sheepdog competition. If She did, we'd be hearing about it.

  8. OMD Girrrrrls that was NOT a good way to end your wonderful weekend at all. The NERVE (and FOOLISHNESS) of THEM not to allow you to go to the Sheeps TRIALS. I am SURE you would have found them all NOT GUILTY. AND then NOT to have had any I Scream. SHAMEFUL just SHAMEFUL. I think you should come HERE to live on my hill with Ernie and Me.

  9. My granddaughter-dog, Bonnie, got to try working sheep. At first, she was just like you girls -- wanting to run them around the pen. But then, she kinda got the hang of finessing them around. The trainer said she thought Bonnie had potential as a herder. So, even though you didn't get sheep, at least you got bones!

  10. Both Bella and Roxy would have made the show more interesting by showing them how to herd them sheeps! SHE should take you all next time... just saying.

    and ice-cream van and NO ice-cream... how is that even possible... but at least you all got bones rite? i had to wait for my cow to come back... she was out the whole entire day and i was starved and lonely and lonely. I think you girls have it better... at least there's bones.

    woofs n licks,

  11. Awww, poor guys! Our boys are having baths today, so I think there weekend is going to go downhill quick!


  12. Totally agree girls, the skills of those sheepdogs are SO overrated.
    Toodle pip!

  13. Those sheepses looks totally boring. Probably it is a good thing you no was there; probably you would has felled asleep from the boringness.


  14. OUTRAGEOUS!!!! UNACCEPTABLE!!!...oh wait, you got bones? Ok just outrageous then.
    Wally & Sammy

  15. Unbelieveable!! No playin' with sheeps AND no ice cream????? I would call the animal abuse hot line right now!!
    I hope next week is better for ya.



  16. The nerve.... You girls would have done them proud with those sheep! It's nice to see your ice cream vans look like the ones here in California. Where I grew up in New Jersey, they look like trucks, I find the van thing a bit weird.
    Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy

  17. This all totally unacceptable... I say you submit a complaint, in writing... Terrible!

  18. What! We are calling the authorities on your behalf
    Benny & Lily

  19. Your weekend sure did take a dive, girls! You would have had such fun showing those sheep who was boss!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  20. Awww, now that's not fair. We just know you three would have had those sheep rounded up quick as a flash. I (Stella) started to quiver and shiver with those sheep photos. You know I fancy myself as a sheep doggie, hehehe. Hope you mum gives you an ice cream next time!! See ya girls. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  21. Daisy, sheep are just not a Scottie thing, give us a real fast tree rat and watch the fun. Look on the bright side you did get a bone!

    Your Furends
    Susie & Bites

  22. SHE could have at least turned on the TV for you to enjoy with your bone!

  23. She abandoned you guys...for boring sheep?! What's that about? Well, looking at the photos, you probably had a way better time at home then watching Mr. SlowMo! ;-) Well, at least you got a yummy bone at the end of it all!

  24. Your hoomans are so cruel, no day out and no icecream...shocking :-)

  25. Thats a cute ice cream van! I can't believe you didn't get any ice cream.
