Spending Time With Dad

We have been chilling with Dad.  He has been on vacation this week.  He is cleaning the house and watching the Olympics though.  Dad had company over for lunch on Sunday (Tonks' and Kiana's Pawrents) and then again on Tuesday (Leo's Pawrents).  Everyone had fun and Sherman loved the extra attention. 

Dad has been sleeping a lot and drinking plenty of water.  He has cut down some of the umbrella trees and palm fronds in the back yard.  He has cleaned and organized the kitchen, living room, dining room, both bath rooms.  The master bedroom should be done today and hopefully the guest bedroom and computer room will be done by Sunday.  We don't think so, because Dad is slow and those rooms are a mess.  Then off course Dad is doing yard work, giving us walks and time at the Dog Park, so that is less time to organize.  A lot of stuff got tossed in the trash.

We have enjoyed having Dad around.  It is nice to get pets and hugs during the day.  We follow him around outside to make sure he is doing the job right.  Then of course there is time to rest and take it easy.

Dog Speed,

A tip of the hat to Dog Dad for doing so much cleaning on his vacation! We bet that Essex and Sherman can hardly wait until the day Dog Dad retires and gets to stay home all the time!!

You are being great examples of how to relax. Hopefully Dog Dad takes notice and follows your lead. Don't let him work too hard on his vacation!

Glad u had a good and organizing vaca! E & S look really relaxed..always made me laugh when E & D would would be on their backs sleeping with paws on their chests. Know what ya mean about going thru stuff and throwing out....still putting stuff away from my move a few months ago. Always seems something comes up to get in the way of getting it done, but it's getting done, albeit S-L-O-W-L-Y.
