  • Good morning,
    Everyone knows I take the day off on a Thursday but I wanted to let the new members of the Glue Squad know that if they go back to yesterday's post there is a comment from me about how the Glue Squad got it's name and what it means to its's members. Some of the newer members didn't know the meaning of the name of our elite group.
    Raining, no work today, no deck time. Going back to bed
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Hello Glue Squaders everywhere!
    Thank you so very much Professor Maddox for the history lesson. Max and I feel very privileged to have been accepted into such an elite group.
    This week has been beautiful! Temps in the 70's, very little rain, very low humidity. Mom picked a great week for vacation.
    Today Mom is meeting a friend for breakfast and Dad will mow. Our human cousin, Kayla, is coming over later to help Dad with the yard work.
    This all means more outdoor time for us! Yippee!
    Pugs and kisses
    Brutus and Max

  • Hi Dr. Pia,
    What great pals you had when you were a girl. Mimi had a boston terrier that she loved very much.
    I sure liked todays pictures a lot.
    Have a great day!
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • How adorable! I immediately recognized you Dr.Pia in that first photo...sweet photos with sweet quotes :-)

    Have a wonderful Weekend everyone...

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    And hello to you too Dr. Pia. What a yucky day here in the south. It started raining last night and is still raining this morning. It does stop for a little while; just long enough for me to get outside for ‘things,’ and then it starts again. Now you know how I don’t like getting wet and this rain is getting to me. Soggy feet isn’t my idea of fun. There are a few of us here on the Glue Squad that have been here from the beginning with the girls. I have made hundreds of postings and followed others throughout the years. We always welcome new members; glad to have you aboard. Relax and enjoy the ride; it’ll be worth it.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi Dr. Pia and Minnow, My Mom and I certainly enjoyed all 8 of these beautiful photos with all of those beautiful animals that you love and we love them. also! I love to meet new animals and people when ever I can and I met a new friendly lady when I finally got to take a walk yesterday with Mom! It had been so hot before and now we are supposed to get rain! How fun to hear from Black Mama, Maddox, Brutus and Max, Rebel, Delia, and Kirby Bear already this morning! Hope you all have a great day! Dr. Pia, please hug Minnow for me! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Morning Dr Pia, Minnow and Glue Squad Buddies, nice to see the pictures and quotes. I especially like picture #4, I like belly rubs and if I was small enough I'd sit on Mom's lap for my belly rubs; but I know that's not going to happen all, hehe so I have to wait until I'm laying on the floor. Rain expected later tonight. Hope everyone is doing okay today.

    Till next time,
    Missy Chow
    xoxo

  • Hi everyone!
    Thank you Dr.Pia for those wonderful quotes! #7 is a favorite and subbing in Dogs for people is how Mis feels about me.
    Hope everyone is doing well and having the best day possible. I know it's rainy for some and it's spitting at us now but that's just a good excuse to sleep a bit more, wouldn't you agree. Then we should have even more energy to run and play with!
    Mis is working on the Catio as she gets a chance. Maybe by next week it will be ready. All I know is that things are about to really change around here. Wailing cats and cooped up dogs are to be expected.
    Ruby, I'm getting on Mis about the e-mail and picture thing. She is just soooo slooowwww!
    Thanks Maddox for explaining the 'Glue Squad'. Makes me feel special to be able to contribute to such a great group! I'll try to hold up my end of the deal. And even though I may not mention everyone when I post, I think about each of you anyway. I just need a notebook to keep up with all that goes on.
    On to that nap I have planned! Dixie Boy
