Chauncy is an indoor kitty but when it's sunny, we sometimes let him lounge on the deck if we are watching him...

  • Hello Minnow, Luna, Chauncey, and Dr. Pia,
    Party planner next to my landscape business is my especiality. Hehehehehehe!! I am underage, so no liquor for me, but the games and other food sound fab. Minnow, wear both hats---one half the night and the other the other half. We will be having all kinds of partying this weekend---it is the derby I hear too, I think!!! Have a GEM of a party and enjoy that yummo guac!!!!
    Love & licks,
    Ruby

  • Hi Dr. Pia&Minnow, Sweet, beautiful Minnow, you look so darling in every one of these photos! My Mom loves seeing you also, because she thinks you look a lot like me and I do, too! How fun to see Chauncy and Luna, too! Sure hope you have a fun Cinco de Mayo and I'm sure Dr. Pia will, too! Can't wait to see even more great photos of you and your wonderful family again! Sorry, we commented so late today, but Mom's computer, TV, and phone were not working until a little while ago because of problems Comcast had to fix for all of us. Ruby, nice to hear from you today again and sure hope the rest of you comment real soon! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Sooo glad to see you had a post...Ahhh sweet Minnow you look adorable in your regalia of Cinco De Mayo outfits...hope someone had a Margarita for me. All your other furfriends are enjoying themselves as well.
