Another cute pix

Kody has perfected the "I'm so darling" look because it rewards him most times. At this unfortunate time for him, I was drinking wine and I don't share my wine.

First pool party of the summer!

Kody loves Janet for many reasons; but, the TOP reason is she has a pool.

He does this funny thing that when he doesn't want to jump in for what EVER crazy reason, he tries to "pull" the ball to him by using his foot. Is it me or is my dog a GENIUS!

Uh oh...dilemma...however will he get out!

Another Genius move, i must say....

This is what we get when we don't throw the ball right away...a very pathetic staring-at-the-ball look. (well..he glanced up when he saw the camera)

We party and play cards while Kody wears himself out. He will literally keep going until he is near death and then even a little more.

It's hard to tell when he's over-done it becuase he won't show any pain until later on in the evening when the stiffness creeps in and then the next day when he can barely move.

But, now in his later years, when I make him rest...he doesn't seem to mind.

Betsy, on the other hand, NEVER minds resting.

Here's to Summer of 2008!

Kody almost got hit by a bus today.

I take him to the baseball park every once in a while to throw the ball for him. I don't do it much anymore because he's 7 and he's big.

I've been doing this for 5 years now.

Today, he decided something was worth investigating across the street that he had to check out at full speed.

I usually goof around while I wait for Kody to get the ball and when I was done goofing, I looked at him just in time to see him running across the street while a bus is coming towards him at about 35mph.

I could only scream the only deep guttural scream I own and try to keep myself from passing out. I couldn't tell where Kody was in relation to the bus but neither one met. As he ran back, a car was coming from the other direction...Utter chaos...him running in the street, me running in the street screaming like a white trash mother who's lost control of her kids....

I tried so hard not to beat him; but, i really wanted to. Instead, I grabbed him by the scruff of his big-ass neck and screamed at him like he understood what I was saying.

For his punishment, his park visit was cut short and he had to stay in the garage for 15 minutes while I calmed down.

Fear of loss is why I hate being in love....

Total Bliss....

Kody and the Big Stick

This is always my favorite...others adoring my boy.

And the malamute in Kody ADORES the snow...even if it's old. (look real hard...he's sitting right in the middle)

On the ride home...BOTH of us were nodding off becuase it was a gooooood weekend.

Kody IS a man!

Kody mentioned that, although he ADORES all his female followers, he's concerned that he's not appearing manly enough.

He asked me if I'd help capture him in one of his more casual manly moments so I did...

and to prove he doesn't just use that football as a prop...
