My handsome self. Mommy says the picture looks empty because Scout is not there.

Mommy has been having a lot of crying days lately. She said part of it because she misses Scout. Scout went to live on God's Farm in the Sky about twelveteen weeks ago. He was the "fix Mommy's crying" dog. I don't know what to do when Mommy cries. Me and Bailey just know how to bark.

But we are trying to be gooder dogs. Last week we went for a walk together and we even let our tails touch and we didn't kill each other. Yesterday, I snuck outside with Bailey for a minute and then Bailey snuck down the stairs to the front door with me for about two seconds. We didn't kill each other those times either.

Look! Our tails are touching!
 Bailey even tried to help Mommy with her crochet a blankie project. But that didn't help. I don't know why. I think Bailey made it pretty!
Bailey was being a big make a blankie helper.
But Mommy says she still misses Scout. I think it has to do with all of the bottles of bubbles she found. I don't like to play bubbles. Bailey sometimes like to play bubbles but she gets too wild. Scout was the super bubble chasing dog. 
Scout was the super everything dog.
 Murphy says Mommy is crying because us animals cost her so much money and she's still paying the bills from when I ate her inhaler and had to go to the hospital and when Bailey got her surgery to get her girl stuff fixed. And Murphy needs about twoteen hundred dollars to get a tooth taken out because it is O.U.C.H.Y.

She is probably crying because of Scout and how much us animals cost, plus the ants that have come to live in our house. They decided the really like it in our house and Mommy says if they don't leave she is going to move to the Arctic Circle, where it is too cold for ants.

Remember this fun time?
 Or maybe she just remembers last year when there were three dogs who liked to share popsicles. It is not as much fun without Scout.

Disney has a new show "Dog With A Blog". I am not the star.

This is not me. This is a TV blogging dog. But he is pretty handsome, too.

Guess what? Disney is making a new show about a dog just like me. It is called "Dog With A Blog."

I am not the star. The star looks a little like me. He is handsome, too. But I have been blogging for about eleventeen years, so I'm more specialer.

I don't know if the TV dog can write as good as me. We don't get Disney Channel so we won't watch the show. But Mommy says, "Who needs a blogging dog on TV when you live with a blogging dog every day?"

That's right, Mommy. I'm the original blogging Border collie.

I'm pretty sure this TV dog is also not a Mystery Barf champ. But maybe I will write to him like I write to Bo Obama and we can be paw pals.

Me and Mommy visit Highland Park before the Lilac Festival starts

The workers are getting the park ready for the Lilac Festival party.
About eleventymillionteen people will come from around the world to smell the flowers.

So today me and Mommy went for a walk in a place called Highland Park. It is a famous place because every year they have a big party called the Lilac Festival. If you live where I live, the Lilac Festival is A Very Big Deal.

Just in case you didn't know, a lilac is a pretty flower that grows on a tree. Butterflies like it and bees like it and mommies like it, too. Dogs don't really care about lilacs. But the trees are good to pee on!

There are a lot of good sniffs to sniff at Highland Park.

So me and Mommy walked for a while in the park. The party doesn't start until next week so we thought we would visit before eleventymillionteen people showed up.

We went up, up, up the hill and passed some people sitting on benches reading books and daddies and mommies pushing babies in strollers and people walking around sniffing flowers. I was the only one peeing on trees.

This is the Reservoir. You are not allowed to swim in there.
Even if you really need to cool off..

At the top of the park there is a place called the Reservoir. This is not a giant swimming pool, even though it looks like a fun place to go for a swim. Especially if you are hot and tired of walking up hills and peeing on trees and being a good dog and not jumping on people or sniffing babies.

The Reservoir is the place where our drinking water comes from! But guess what? You are not allowed to drink the water in there, either. You have to drive home and turn on the kitchen faucet. But they do have a fountain in case you can't wait till you get home.

I could not wait.

Tasty water from the Reservoir. I would rather have had a swim.

Then me and Mommy walked down, down, down the hill and back to the car. It was a good walk and I was a good boy but I was hot and tired. You know Mommy made me take a stupid picture anyway.

This is me. Those are lilacs. Can we go now, Mommy?

The good thing about Mommy is that when I am a good dog, I get a treat. So we went to Tim Horton's for coffee and a Tim Bit. Then we went home and I got sprayed off with the hose.

If you want to learn more about the Lilac Festival, you can visit their website. Or you can visit the festival!

But if you are a dog, you probably want to stay home. It will be hot and there will be a lot of people and loud music and cars, and stuff you will want to eat but you can't, and people who will want to pet you when you don't want to be petted, and you might get bored or cranky and do something bad, like bite someone or pee on someone or steal a hot dog from a child in a stroller. It will not be a fun dog party.

In fact, the smart people at the Lilac Festival said on their website that you are not supposed to bring your dog: "Be kind to your pets and leave them home! We appologize ahead of time for this inconvenience but we are considering the saftey of your pets and other visitors to the Lilac Festival." (I did not make those spelling boo boos. Just so you know.)

You can visit before or after the festival, though! The lilac flowers might not be flowering but you can still pee on the trees.

Your pal,
