If only it could be.....three?

This is Trever. I met him for the first time this weekend at an HGA event. What a lover!!! If only my association would let me have a third, I would have chipped this weekend. Do you think they would notice an additional 80+ pounds walking around with me??? The beautiful brindle acts like camouflage, right? I think I could have gotten away with the "I'm just dog sitting for a few weeks" excuse.....for a few weeks. Eventually they would have caught on and someone would report me.
Trever is such a sweet boy! But all is not lost. A nice young couple is ready to adopt this handsome pupper. They are moving into a new house soon - what a greyt house warming gift!!!
Oh well.....

Frogs and Hogs

Our evening walks have become quite entertaining. There seems to be a large number of little bity frogs that come out at night and chill on the sidewalk along our potty walk path. I have no problem with them being there, if only they would just STAY STILL!!! Every time they get to hopping around, I have to hold the boys back. Don't they know we have a pact???!!? You don't jump around in clear sight and I won't let my dogs eat you!! :)

So, the other night, after our final frog-filled frolic of the evening, the boys and I head to bed. Well, let me clarify. I went to bed. The boys, about 30 minutes later, finally decided to join me. Bud headed up first and had his pick of the beds. (The one closest to mommy is the primo spot.) About 5 minutes later, Hoss decided to join us. In my half asleep'dness, I hear him coming, but think nothing of it. Until......the undertone of growls starts. I open my eyes to see Hoss, pawing at the bed as if to fluff it - only instead of the other bed, he is priming the one Bud is laying on. Bug tried to defend his spot with a growl and a few warning barks, but Hoss is the Boss and was too stubborn for that. Since Bud wouldn't move, Hoss decided to lay down on the floor between me and Bud. (That is not a lot of room....he was crammed in there, making a point.) Eventually, Bud got the hint, gave in, and moved over to the next bed. Hoss claimed his prize and they both drifted to sleep.

Exhibit #1: Drool Spot

Your Honor, I would like to present Exhibit #1: a drool spot on a throw pillow from the couch.

Upon arriving at home after a long, exhausting bike workout, I greeted the boys with my usual love and affection. As I walked over to turn on the laptop, I noticed a dark spot on one of the pillows. A quick touch - wet. A quick sniff -not pee (phew!).

The prosecution feels this evidence is substantial in our ongoing efforts to prove that one of the household hounds is seeking comfort on the plush, leather wrapped cushions of the living room couch while their super-fly owner (that's me!) is not present.
