Happy Happy, Joy Joy, Drool Drool

Someone was very happy to see us yesterday after spending a week in my brother’s backyard and garage while we were in Destin. Old Bailey girl was happy, too, but she preferred to play it cool and nonchalantly gaze out the back window. Jack, however, did not hide hold back the emotions.

Or drool.

We need a dog drool shield for the back seat for such happy reunions.


“Oh please scratch my head, scratch my head, SCRATCH IT, SCRATCH IT, SCRATCH IT!”


“Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we? Are we?”


“Almost home and I can smell the green grass of spring just waitin’ for me to pee on it.

I am majestic. I am loved. I am really stinky. Life is good.”

    What a happy dog. I miss our dog so much, but not enough to get another, I remember the lovely spring yard clean up, the yellow patches, the big piles of dog poop. You can try all winter to collect as much as you can, but….they sink in the snow, to be covered up till spring. LOL! (ick!)

    I do miss having a dog.

    Jack is a real sweetheart. My husband found him. He’d been hit by a car and my husband wasn’t sure if Jack was alive or not. That was pre-kids, years ago!

    HOWEVER, he really really sheds and we let him in the house (but thankfully he’s too big to get on any furniture unlike our Corgi/German Shepherd mix who can still manage to jump on the couch.)

    So I do a lot of bitching about dog hair. All in all, they are both a big part of our family though.

    LOL!! This made me LAUGH!! Our dog is the same way. If he’s happy (or nervous, or in a car, or at the beach, or just got caught sneaking a Girl Scout cookie off the kitchen counter) there are buckets of drool. One time, we were taking him to the dog beach and our neighbor couldn’t stop laughing at him slobbering up the window.

    I know it’s supposed to be a little gross and all, but it’s kind of nice to know that he loves you guys that much, isn’t it? =)

    we were gone for over a week and just got our dog back as well. The reunion was very similar. smaller dog, maybe a little less drool. But the same amount of excitement…
