Grab some coffee -- this is long....

First --

a super BIG thank you to
(click on the name to go to their blog)

They had a contest during their
Hound of the Book Review
and I won!

I won a cool book called
A Famous Dog's Life!
I can't wait to start reading it!


Second --

The weekend is here!

Ozabella and I are getting ready to work
in the yard and clean Billy the Bus!

It is suppose to be very nice weather too!

Here is what the Weather Channel said....

Jun 4 Saturday

Abundant sunshine. Highs in the upper 70s and lows in the low 50s.

Jun 5 Sunday
Mix of sun and clouds. Highs in the mid 70s and lows in the mid 50s.

AND you know they are ALWAYS right!
Looks like a good start....

So until Monday I will leave you with
some pictures of my
Zone 3 friends....
(plus some from down the road....)

Mr. Blue Jay

Mr. Woodpecker

Lil' Chipmunk
(that's his rap name)

The Geese Family
(from down the road)

Mr. and Mrs. Grosbeak

Mr. Porcupine
(from down the road)

Have a fun filled weekend, my friends!

I think I will try to get some reading in
before I start working....

See you Monday!

Later -- Remington --
I love the weekends!
-- out!

Congratulations on winning the book! Looks like a pawsome book, can't wait for your review.

You have the coolest Zone 3 friends. They are so bright and pretty and colorful! Today my favorite is Mr. Porcupine. Very cool!

I may have to run over to your place for the week-end. My weather calls for super hot 90s and humid. Your weather sounds much nicer. Enjoy!

Yay!!! I'm glad it's time to clean Billy the Bus! That means road trips are right around the corner! Umm.. so... my mom wants me to ask you something... do you sit with your paws crossed naturally or is that your picture pose? She's so weird.... Either way we both think it's SO cute!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

We're still marveling at your art lesson and the fact that you can hold a pencil in your paws and actually draw! Your estate is looking really sharp, thanks to all your hard work. You do know to keep a respectful distance from the porky-pine, we're sure. Mama had a Dane once who learned that lesson the hard way.
