Guess what?

Buster's on Sabbatical up at the lake with his Mom!

It's peaceful. No strutting, no macho barking, no idiotic stunts just to impress the girls! It's just us--Sephie & Bailey, taking care of Dad and our human siblings. At last! Order and Civility reign within the household.

Now, we can dance on the deck and run like the wind! Bozo isn't here to chase us!

No bond is tighter than the one between girls--especially moms and daughters, canine OR human! Sometimes, Dad says we remind him of the same dog, with two tails!

At last! The house is PROPERLY guarded against skunks, squirrels, terrorists, and the Westie down the street.

We've confiscated Buster's favorite toys and made them our own! He'll NEVER know, and we'll never tell!

Part of a proper young lady's day is good exercise. We can gallup about the back yard without the 45-pound gorilla trying to SUPERVISE everything.

And guess who controls the Remote? FINALLY! IT'S Animal Planet and "So You Think You Can Dance!" NO MORE MILITARY CHANNEL--Hooray!

Our meals are served with appropriate decorum, freshly grilled chicken, and a sprig of mint...

And the day ends peacefully. No theatrics about going to bed at a civilized hour, no complaining, no begging for a midnight snack.

Buster, eat your heart out!

We wonder how he's doing.

It IS really quiet.

And the house does seem kind of empty!


Wonder if he misses us?

Looks like your getting on quite well without him! It's nice when they go away for a while, but it's nice when the come back too. Even Sherman.
