we were greeted by Puck, at the door. THE DOOR! Yes, he had managed a jail-break from his travel crate! For as long as 8 hours. Unreal. We ran all over the house checking rooms for damage.
We found one of Kira's diapers half-eaten at the bottom of the stairs and a trail of poop all the way up the stairs, but that was IT as far as we can tell. I'm impressed. He tore around the house and yard looking guilty because of the poop and the diaper, but quickly got over that when he smelled the hot dogs I made the kids for dinner.

All of the kids together (Campbell forgot his matching Canada Day shirt at his grandparents house).
We also went to visit my grandfather. After a few close "urgent" phone calls from the doctor over the last week, he seems to be doing better. He was very boisterous today and was screaming out, spitting out his drink, trying to bite my hand. The kids thought that it was awesome and can't wait to go back to the senior's home! Here he is chewing on his own fingers and Kira, the copycat, is inspired to do the same.
My sister had an easy labour and soon we got the call that Tenley, had arrived. She weighed 8 lbs. 10 oz. and both her and my sister are doing great.
Patrick couldn't wait to get her into his arms.
who insisted on holding her baby. ("Me, baba, no, me")
Welcome to this world, happy birthday and Happy Canada Day to Tenley!
The poor kid shares her birthday with 2 other Canadians, Pamela Anderson and Dan Akroyd. Now how do you top those 2!
Hey, Mulan, you only need to ask me once to show off your cousin Puck. (they are cousins, right?) LOL Here he is in my yard stalking everything that moves. He just figured out that he's supposed to NOTICE the birdies. First he's guarding the birdfeeder...
And chasing flies...
He's pretty good at catching them too!
Puck is a great dog. He has his occasional naughty moments, but it is still hard to believe that he is still a 6 month old puppy. And a 6 month old GSP puppy at that! I'm amazed at how well he listens off lead already. The only time he doesn't listen is when he is hunting puddy cats, he is quite "cat sharp". There may be hope for him as he does obey me when he is carrying Buddie by the ear and I say "Drop it". ;-)
Mulan, Congrats on the field dog test! After seeing those pictures of her going after the ducks, I'm sure she's having a great time with it. Thanks for clearing up the question about the ants on the peonies.
