Where’d they go?

It’s been nearly a month since the Red Head crew has had a blog entry. It hasn’t been laziness – this hardworking crew is always busy. Just checkout this schedule:

6:30 am: Wake Mom and Dad so they can feed us.
Rest of morning: Chew toys, fight with siblings, and ensure we are not attacked by pirates.
Lunch: Beg for food from dad’s plate.
Early afternoon: Rest up from frantic morning.
3:00 pm: Go to dog park.
4:30: Kid’s dinner.
Evening: Hope for more food from dad’s dinner and wait for final bedtime treat.
Repeat.

The problem has been Mom. She’s really been loafing on the job. Before New Years she flew off for five days to help celebrate Grandma’s 90th birthday at a big bash. That’s only about 13 in dog years, not really all that impressive. The kids had to count on Dad to take care of them – it was a little scary but they made it.

Then Cousin Leslie and her husband, Chris, came to spend a few days with the crew after their camping trip to a Dry Tortugas. Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora want to point out that they were perfectly behaved at all times.

Well, mostly…

After a few days sick in bed with a cold, Mom is finally back with the program. The crew has even seen her placing some pretty big orders on Chewy. Bahamas here we come!

Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora hope you are having a great 2019!

Christmas 2018

The Red Head crew has finally recovered from the first Christmas with the newest crew member. Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora awoke to find Santa had left three packages under the tree. Mom was sure Santa had gotten his naughty and nice lists mixed up but the…

Twins???

Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora had their last run to the dog park this morning as Mom is returning the car early tomorrow. While we were there, a women came running down the path with a black and white dog alongside. The dog spotted the crew and ran to the f…

First and Last

Today Dora had her first surgery that we hope will be her last. Dad took her in early this morning to Seaside Veterinary Clinic where she was scheduled to be spaded. Dora’s dad stayed with her as she woke. She did fine and was home before noon.There wi…

An Important 1st

Since Dora joined the Red head crew, she has been racking up one first after another. Pretty much every place she goes and much of what she does is a first for this little girl. Last week she checked off a really important first – her first overnight c…

Another Amigo

Faithful followers of the blog will remember the many fun-filled days Dylan, Dee Dee, and their best buddy, Gracie, spent at the beach in the Bahamas. Mom loved those times so well, she chose the above picture for her iPad background. If you’ve missed …

The Red Head Crew

One of the most common questions Dylan and Dee Dee hear is about how the newest crew member is fitting in. They thought the following series says it all…Dee Dee: “I’m still the diva.”Dylan:  “Sigh…”

Michael

 

The Red Head crew decided to hunker down at AYB in Chesapeake, VA to let Hurricane Michael pass through. It was a tropical storm when it came through in the middle of the night. There was lots of noise and rain but little damage.

Dora now has a real storm under her belt. She slept through it…

Unfortunately, the crew’s home from last winter, Panama City Beach, did not fair so well. Everyone watched the news and saw pictures of the destruction of familiar places. The kids worried most about their friends from the dog park.

Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora are sending their warmest wishes to all the dogs and their humans at the Frank Brown Dog Park. We hope you weathered the storm and will recover quickly.
