They Keep Leaving Me Home

Mom's pretty much busy with things other than my bloggie - The little one is here for the whole week and she's been pretty busy running with her. We went to a movie and for bike rides on Monday - I think there are pics but not downloaded. Tuesday was busy with shopping then mom had a NARI board meeting so they were gone all afternoon and early into the evening - I had to stay home! Livy got a new bicycle on Tuesday too - Wednesday morning mom had a committee meeting for Lavendar Festival - then they went to the ZOO - again, without me! But today they spent it with me - We went to the Farmer's Market, took Livy's new bicycle with the BIG NAIL in the tire to the bike shop, the made tons of lemonade where Livy had a Lemoade stand outside - She sold $24 worth of lemonade - would have sold more but it began lightening and thunder started and we all went in.

In the Kid's Zone
we don't know those people in the pink tops  BOL - 
the poser!
Livy Rides A Camel -  remember I am at home alone........

Now'  we're selling Lemonade -  I'm in mommy's lap with the camera - but somehow there are absolutely NO PICTURES OF ME
Here is little Miss Olivia waving down local traffic while my daddy poured the lemonade -  Tank will be happy to know that we had a cat on duty making sure that there were no squirrels in site!
She became more and more animated as the afternoon went on and as her sales grew.   Mom made her a new sign for use tomorrow -  so sales should increase - assuming that they do it again.   Mom made sure the lemonade was made with fresh lemons and real sugar and not a mix -  so hopefully people will come back tomorrow for seconds.....
They are going to  a minor league ball game tomorrow night - mom can't sneak me in to that - so I'll be stuck at home.    

Remember they are going to Seattle on Monday -  and I am staying with Susanne and her 4 dogs.   I may just choose NOT TO COME BACK - unless they stop leaving me at home!!!!!

I've gotten 2 postcards from Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie - mom needs to scan them so I can show them to you - but she's too busy with "other things"  - honestly, I can't believe she is ignoring me so much.     AND, there is a package for Mason Dixie that needs to be mailed -  I can't believe it's been sitting here for days & days -  SORRY Mason!  


  1. Don't worry. Mom will not forget you!

  2. Awww may be left home but you're simply not forgotten! There are some instances where it's better for us dogs to be at home than following humans around ..

    Licks and Wags

    Tuffy and the Dog WOods Pack

  3. Tut tut, shocking that they are giving the small human so much time and leaving you out Checkers, truly shocking.
    We are wondering if your Paw it Forward package has arrived yet? We know we sent it surface mail (it was too much £££ to airmail it!) but it's been weeks!
    Let us know when it arrives will you? We're worried about it>
    Slobbers xx

  4. I'm so glad you didn't try and taste the lemonade, Checkers! Lemons are yucky! Mom says the lemonade made with real lemons is the best and I say mom is NUTS!
    How awesome that Livy got to ride a camel! That's something that not everyone gets to do!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  5. Hi Checkers,

    Congratulations on your engagement! Suzuki's tag is beautiful.

    Sorry you are being left alone so much. I'm sure your mom will make it up to you later. Have fun selling lemonade.

    Wags & wiggles,

  6. Hey Checkers, sorry to hear you are being left alone again but you always have us! Lemons.......yuck!


  7. You should ask your Mummy if you can come and stay with me fur a while and we can plan the wedding. That way you wont be home alone so much.
    Big licks to you

  8. Was that a headless camel that Livvy was riding on?? Or just a bad photographer? The cat seemed to be doing a fine job warding off squirrels - do you just bark orders and the cats comply?? They must consider you their master. Interesting.

    For a dog who shops at Target and got snuck into a movie... who eats at Panara's and goes more places than most of us, I'm not sure you have any right to complain buddy. Chill out.

  9. Wow Checkers! We sorry to hear you got left behind at the big day at the zoo! I guess your mom didn't want YOU to take away from all of the other animals people went there to see. They would defenitely be drawn to you first. Hey, we have an idea...start your own little-bitty mini zoo and be sure to charge admission! You'll make a killing. We loved the Watch-Cat on duty at the lemonade stand! Good call! BTW...Brind'Amour told us about your engagement! Congrats to you and your future Woof!

    The Krazy-Kool Kat Krew
    BTW...we left an award for you! :o)

  10. WOW what an exciting week - hope lemonade sales do well today


  11. Woo have had lots of fun but just THINK how much more woo khould have had by going to THE ZOO!

    Paws khrossed fur more lemonade sales!

    Maybe she khould offer pikhs with WOO and the lemonade fur even more fundraising!


  12. woah - i read that you get to eat @ Panera ~~~ I HAVE BEEN THERE ONCE .. it was gooooooood!
    What a good squirrel watchin' cat, not even bothered by the traffic from the lemonade sale... High
    Five Kitty!
    Checkers.. about you being left @ home, maybe you should post stickies around the house while they're gone - let them know you dont like to be alone - and they wont forget... :) BOL...

  13. That would be fun if you could go over Suzuki's.
    LOVE your new bloggy look - very patriotic! In anticipation of 4th of July. Your mom did good by you with this new look. Enjoy the weekend - knowing you're loved.

  14. We are sure Mom will never forget you. Maybe Livy just needs some extra attention right now - sure looks like she is having a very fun time. Have fun at Susannes - 4 dogs - you will be in pup heaven.

    Tail wags, the OP Pack

  15. poor checkers.... being left all by your lonesome :( have fun with your friends

  16. Awww...Checkers, I'm sorry your Mom and Dad aren't giving you the attention you need and deserve. If you leave a "gift" for them in the middle of the floor they might get the point! ~Twix

  17. I forgot to tell you...I've been votin for ya ;o)

  18. Hi Checkers,
    Tell your humans to get you 20 humongous Kongs stuffed with all sorts of yummy things...that'll keep you nice & occupied while they're at the game!
    Your pal,

  19. Checkers, when life hands you lemons...throw them at squirrels!

  20. Hi Checkers,

    Probably next time, you can ask to come along with Livy, ya?

    Adele, Vincent & Bella

  21. Poor Checkers, Dispatch shares in your misery. He doesn't know why he can't go everywhere with his humans, he's very willing to leave with them @ all times, that should be enough?
    Great pictures even if you aren't in them, loved the lemonade stand!
