An Amazing Award

We've been a little quiet for a couple of days -  Livy got out of school on Friday and she and mom have been doing a lot of piddling around - they went to see the movie EARTH, they said it was really pawsome, but they had to hide their eyes a couple of times.  When they got home startedplanning our summer vacation at the beach, we're going to Daufuskie Island in South Carolina - and YES, I get to go too!!!!! - so that has taken up a lot of computer time -  Then it also looks like mom might have found a job  and she's been spending time on that too talking to the man who might hire her and stuff that I don't really understand other than the fact that she is on the phone and not paying attention to little ole me!   Here's a couple of photos we took on Friday afternoon - do you like my new custom designed outfit?

I was so surprised and honored tonite when mom went to check my email and found theMost Wonderful Favorite Award  from the adorable little Bichon  DISPATCH  at Animals That Give Pause
